LOL, well the only take away I got is. Ralph gets to save some money this year by only having to pay the difference in wannakrap's new contract instead of his whole Bills salary for 2013.

Does the stache have any history at being a ST co-ordinator? Can't be any worse then he was as DC last year

He has experience as ST coach in college.

Salary probably gets a bump next year so Ralph needs to pay most of contract this year.

Look for the Buccaneers to only rush 4 on punts and FG attempts.

Gailey signed his own pink slip when he didn't look for a young aggressive coordinator even after Edwards was a disaster.

Well there goes fake punts, squib kicks, on-side kicks, blocked punts, blocked field goals or anything else original or aggressive for the Bucs.  Sucks as I'm a diehard Bills fan, but have lived in Tampa for over 20 years and root for the Bucs.

You can't get away from this guy.

Could be the worst DC this team has had since I started watching the Bills in the late 80s. With his conservative strategy, I'd be shocked if TB's Special Teams finish anything less than bottom 6.

Do you know the difference between a good coach and a bad coach? The players he has to work with. Wanny was your standard pedestrian coach in the league. Working with the worst LBing corps and suspect defensive backfield didn't elevate his coaching abilities. Even the pre-season highly touted DL turned out to be as firm as an over-cooked noodle.

I'm sure that the new DC is going to be better than the last DC. But the results won't be much different unless more talent is added to the very lackluster group that played last year.
