@MMehtaNYDN: More changes for the Jets. Assistant DBs coach Jim O'Neil will join Mike Pettine as a member of his Bills' staff, per source. #nyj

I hate the Jets but they always have a good defense.  I love stealing their coaches.

I like this move. Pettine comes in and works the D with someone he has been working with for a while. I like this

The Bills have most of their staff hired before other teams have a coach or GM.  Wow.

I would hope a few of last years coaches are retained.  thinking DeHaven, Metzlars maybe.  A little organizational memory is a good thing, despite the performance failures of the past.  The emotional urge to get rid of them all is best surpressed.  I felt the same way when Kugler left to the Steelers. Or, go get Boobby April for special teams, again.

Jets love their DBs :)

Awesome!

Not only good experienced coaches but from a division rival makes it all the more better!

Now a good QB and a few more "parts" and things are VERY exciting for the very near future!

I can't believe I'm getting excited about the Bills again.  I hate myself!  All they've done is take an early lead in the off-season hirings, and I'm already imagining an awesome team battling with the Pats for the AFC East.

As of now I am cautiously optimistic. After the past two decades, I won't be anything more than that until the playoffs are reached.
