JohnnyGold, great thread. Too bad too many on this board prefer to look to mock just about every new thread that is started rather than provide a well thought out reply. It's predictable.
I could care less about the uniforms , the turf, etc. All I really care about is that the Bills finally find a way to win again.........in some sustainable fashion. It's painful to watch them flail around aimlessly while they completely waste a shittttttton of Wilson's money.
If you haven't seen Brandon's presser with the Buffalo media I highly suggest that you check it out on www.buffalobills.com
. In that discussion the media guys are pretty tough on Brandon, as they should be. He is pressed several times to explain WHY Bills fans can expect the team to be any better under his rule. His only real answer is that the admin. staff will work harder and "leave no stone unturned." That the football side of things is in Nix's capable hands.
My thoughts on this are that Nix is NOT the man to be making the football decisions/recommendations. Things are not going to turn around anytime soon with Nix as the GM. He has no creativity and is willing to take zero chances. His philosophy is the long tried "build through the draft method". The problem with that method is simply that is you don't draft well, then you pretty much stink up the joint, don't ever make the playoffs, are forced to turn to a "never was" QB and pay him $60M, waste tens of millions of dollars, and become the laughingstock of the NFL. .I wish I could say differently. I really do.
What I suggest Brandon do is to not rely on one of Wilson's cronies to make the football decisions. Instead, he ought to be interviewing prospective NFL personnel throughout the league who are much more qualified to be making the football decisions that either he or Nix. These are the people that he should be interviewing first to try to find the best possible, most knowledgeable person. This is even more important than finding a new HC. Once you have a top notch GM then and only then will you be able to deliver on the omni-important decisions that need to be made to put the Bills back on top.
Brandon doesn't need to know all that much about the football side of things, but he does need to be wise enough to hire someone who is a proven expert. Use Nix and others to help find that person if you have to. Then and only then will the Bills be headed in the right direction.
