Why?  What's the point?  What is our better option?   This is a stupid move.

He hinted in his presser that, at the very least, Legursky was going to take the starting job, but I think taking it one step further is a good move.

Legursky did much better on Sunday, and I think there's reason to believe we can find something better than the absolute worst guard in the league.

A refrigerator from Home Depot is a better option to have on the line than Colin Brown.

Well, it's not like Legursky will miss any playing time.

He has graded out as the worst OL in the league. No reason to keep him around.

Colin Brown is not an NFL caliber OL. I applaud the team for acknowledging this and moving on.

I think Legursky was going to start at LG all along but was injured.

Not even for a little schadenfreude?

I know I don't have the whole story, but based on what I do know, this is a mistake.

I've never bought into the whole "addition by subtraction" line I hear so often.  I can accept Legursky is better than Brown (though I was traveling and haven't seen most of the game yet).  But, who is backing up Legursky who is better than Brown?  Not having a backup, and risking playing someone even worse that Brown, is not something I can endorse.

The point is that Brown doesn't belong on an NFL roster.  Legursky is the starter, and they picked up a backup guard last week.  Bye-bye Colin.

Since the Bills are in a total rebuild, they had to cut Colin Brown. :ph34r:

Until they invent a refrigerator with revolving doors, this is true.

I agree with this.

This staff makes some really interesting moves after the fact.  However, it calls into question their decisions to begin with.  This one is kind of an "oh-well" but he was supposed to be "next man up" not next man out.

They can literally sign anyone off a practice squad and they will be a better swing guard.. the only series Brown played sunday he gave up a 4 yrd loss on a 1st down run then a sack on 2nd. He's turrible and has been all yr

The depth chart at the team site shows 4 Gs: Brown Legursky Urbik and Antoine McClain.
