Inside The Bills | Gailey just as frustrated as players
"I’m not dealing with it very well," he said. "And if I did deal with it very well, I shouldn’t be here. You get in this thing to be the best of the best. The NFL is the world’s best football and you want to be the champion of whatever the best league is. That’s why you get in it and if you don’t get the opportunity to do that and being in the playoffs is the way you get the opportunity to do that, then you don’t feel very good about what you’re doing."

"The 2012 schedule appears relatively soft — the 10 non-division foes were a combined 67-93 this season (.419) — and the Bills might cash in with the No. 10 overall pick in the college draft. The five non-division opponents had a combined 30-50 record this season. That's good for Buffalo."
