Nix already making his mark

Paul KasprzakContributor IMay 7, 2010

Many Buffalo Bills fans for years have been wanting a real general manager ever since Tom Donahoe was fired.

Well Bills fans have that in Buddy Nix as he is clearly making his mark.

According to the Buffalo News, Nix added Darrell Moody, who was previously with the San Diego Chargers, to their scouting staff and promoted Matt Hand from BLESTO to an area scout. The reason being that Nix thought the scouting staff is light.

To be honest Nix brining over a scout from the Chargers isn’t surprising as there are probably scouts that sided with Nix and former Chargers head coach Marty Schottenhiemer when Schottenhiemer and general manager AJ Smith had their dispute.

However, real football guys know that in the National Football League the Draft is the single most important thing to a team’s success and the only way to find those gems is to have a big scouting staff to comb through the small schools.

In the end, it looks like the Bills are heading in the right direction.
