Nix's comments come at a time when the Bills (5-7) are in jeopardy of extending the NFL's longest active playoff drought to a 13th season. Buffalo is on the fringes of playoff contention in preparing to host St. Louis (6-7-1) on Sunday.

John know something we don't?

Said Buddy Nix:

''The way it turned out, I did underestimate how long it would take.''

That's an interesting quote.

Makes me think Nix has someone in mind around the 2-3rd round

I took Buddy's quote "if there's someone you like in the 3rd, you'd better take him in the 2nd" to mean:

"I learned my lesson and now realize that we should have taken Andy Dalton and Colin Kaepernick in the 2nd round and/or Russell Wilson, Nick Foles, or Kirk Cousins in the 3rd round."

I liked this comment from Buddy: ''And I'll tell you this: if you like a quarterback, and like him in the third round, then you had better take him in the second.''

It seems in the last couple of years that QBs have gone high.  Even higher than projected.  Like Jake Locker and Christian Ponder going high  1st round and Colin Kaepernick going high second round.  I would hope that he ammends his line to be "if you like a quarterback, and like him in the third second round, then you had better take him in the second first.''

Ill agree with that. Could be that also. It makes him look really stupid if you believe that though. Wish they would have went with Kaepernick more than anyone in the last few years.

Part of me wants to say "Patience?  PATIENCE?" and yadda yadda yadda.  The other part knows that yet another changing of the guard isn't just going to magically yield a SB run.

no matter what they do, we will harshly comment.
Mario is a perfect example.
With Buddy i never feel cheated or lied to.
if all has not gone as planned exactly, then he says all did not go as planned.

B-) I'm sure that he leaves such details to interns (or he can see 2 weeks into the future...need to take that guy to Vegas!)

I heard the same thing.  I suspect that won't happen this year.

Exactly.

To be fair, while Nix ain't young, this is his first GM gig.

Exactly...Unfortunately Bills Fans were hoping Nix, the veteran scout, was not going to need much on-the-job-training...Tough lesson for us all to learn I guess... B-)

Why can't he just say - we never thought that Washington was going to take Cousins, who we really liked. We got caught with our pants down.

That too.

And that's what worries me the most.  They had Cousins ahead of Wilson.  These are the guys who will be selecting "the next Jim Kelly."  Yikes.

Nix is lying out his ass. It was never their intention to fill other areas of needs first then fill the QB position last. Their intention (and hope) was that Fitz would be that guy. Plus, QB is not a position you just plug in. They usually take a few years to develop.
