Happy trails, Chan.
It appears that the Buddy Nix/Chan Gailey era is officially coming to an end.
Gailey's record as Buffalo head coach was 16-32. Not nearly good enough in a three-year span to save your job.
Gailey joined the Bills at a time when many coaches turned down interview opportunities and the team had little talent.
Fast-forward three years and the team has improved from a talent standpoint. Gailey, however, is in over his head.
My genuine hope is that Gailey catches on somewhere in the league as an offensive coordinator. I feel he can be very competent in this role. However, as a head coach he comes off as flustered and incompetent.
As for Nix, I'm okay with him staying or going. When he became the Bills General Manager, he stated his first goal was to rebuild our lines. He was successful in this area. The Bills have one of the best offensive lines in the league and defensively, the line has plenty of talent.
Nix's biggest mistake was not drafting a QB early in any of his three years as GM. That and handing out a $59-million extension to Ryan Fitzpatrick.
The Bills need continuity at some point, but it should not be with Gailey and Nix.
