This is your poll to state your pleasure, or lack thereof, with head coach Chan Gailey. Here are some stories Gailey has been heavily involved with over the last month.

  • The Bills are 2-2 through the first quarter of the 2012 regular season (L 28-48 to 2-2 NYJ; W 35-17 over 1-3 KC; W 24-14 over 0-4 CLE; L 28-52 to 2-2 NE)
  • Offense ranks: No. 11 overall (387.7 YPG), No. 22 passing (229.8 YPG), No. 4 rushing (158.0 YPG), No. 6 scoring (28.8 PPG)

  • Bills are now 12-24 under Gailey through two-plus seasons, including 2-12 in AFC East games (10-12 in intra-division play)
  • Team continues to rotate players in the starting lineup: Erik Pears and Chris Hairston split reps at right tackle; Aaron Williams and Terrence McGee share reps at cornerback; and George Wilson splits reps with Da'Norris Searcy at strong safety.
  • Okayed an unexpected mid-season change at punter when the team released team captain Brian Moorman and replaced him with undrafted rookie free agent Shawn Powell.
