"I'm glad that they got rid of Dick Jauron and hopefully Perry (Fewell) will not replicate his mistakes, although I do not know much about him. I know this year is probably a bust but hopefully the players respect Perry more than they do Dick. I think the players liked Dick but they certainly didn't play hard for him. Personally I am hoping for Bill Cowher but knowing Ralph Wilson, I don't know if that will happen."

Ellis Walker, 37, Rochester

"The Bills should have done this last January. You wonder what finally made Ralph Wilson pull the trigger since he chose not to after an embarrassing loss to Cleveland. I would like to say that this is going to be the start of a quick rebuilding process since they do have some valuable players, but until they clean house of the entire front office I think we will be going through this same thing again in three or four years."

Ed Solorzano, 23, Rochester

"Buffalo's a great city with great fans. There's a lot of passion there, but the market itself doesn't allow them to pull in the type of talent they need. I'm just trying to take a logical look at this. The Bills, being in the market they are, only have a finite amount of money. I don't think it's going to change until they move, not that I want them move."

Beverly Stout, 56, Chili

"I think this is a great move because the Bills were headed nowhere with Jauron. I would like to see the Bills hire someone like Jim Haslett because he knows the area and appreciates the fans. This team has a lot of problems but if they can hire someone who knows the area and knows how to win we can get this turned around quickly. And hopefully whoever gets hired can find us a quarterback."

Mike Follaco, 30, Irondequoit

"I never saw this coming right now. I would have figured if they'd have made a move, it'd be earlier in the season when they were really tanking or at the bye week. I love the move, don't get me wrong. Cowher would be No. 1. After that Jon Gruden or Mike Shanahan. It's time for an experienced coach, not someone who you think can catch lightning in bottle."

Bryan Bonisteel, 36, Henrietta

"I actually think it's a positive move. Right now there's no place to go besides up. I was surprised just because Ralph Wilson usually doesn't do anything in the middle of the season."
