A week after losing a depressingly bad game against the Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium, the Bills are once again staring an early vacation in the face. The game against Indianapolis was their most important game in recent years in terms of playoff implications and in true Buffalo fashion, they choked the opportunity away.
Gailey was not the sole reason why Buffalo lost on Sunday, but his coaching blunders did add up as a part of the losing formula. A formula that Gailey has concocted to perfection in his three years with the Bills.
The Bills head coach always finds a knack to get away from what is working in an effort to stick to his original gameplan. At times his offensive creativity provides the team with exciting plays, while other times his cute play-calling leads to bone-headed gaffes by his starting quarterback.
After 47 games with Buffalo, Gailey is sporting an impressive 14-29 record. If you want to break that down in a quirky way, he has almost the equivalent of two 0-16 seasons in less than three seasons of work. Good stuff.
Gailey and general manager Buddy Nix have brought in quality talent upgrades all over the Buffalo roster, but the results have remained the same.
The fact that Gailey allowed C.J. Spiller to remain on the sideline and not have a single carry over the final 13 minutes of a one-score game on Sunday is the perfect example of why Bills' fans are at their wit's end.
