Never would have seen that coming.

*reaches for earpiece*

Wait, I'm getting word now that every single member of this board, the local media and anyone who has paid the slightest bit of attention saw that coming. I just wonder what took so long.

This is why he gets paid the big bucks!!!

And not that it matters, but why is it that every big NFL reporter look like they were the manager of the football team (Clayton, this dude, Schefter, the little man Glazer)?

Well this and EJ Manuel as a QB should quiet down people that claim that Ralph is racist.

EJ and Whaley are obligated to be in disguise whenever they're in the presence of Ralph. :lol:

Well, the guy has a lot of experience with the Steelers, and hopefully wasn't corrupted by the incompetence of Gailey and Nix.  Let's see what he can do.

Russ is in charge of the team now, not Ralph.  Just saying.

My sources tell me, and they spoke on the condition of anonymity, that Whaley was holding out by demanding that the Bills' official restaurant be switched from Tempo to China Wall Buffet. We'll see if this is confirmed or not with the next free agent signing.
