Last year, Russ got promoted, had a big press conference and talked a big game saying the Bills image had been tarnished and he would leave no stone unturned in searching for a new coach & making the Bills a winner. One year later, it's the exact same result, 6-10 and 4th in the AFC East (same result 3 years in a row). So, what batch of kool-aid will Russ whip up this offseason to make us all "Billeve" the Bills are headed in the right direction?

Russ is a genius. So, whatever it is, it will have all of us falling hook, line, and sinker. Seriously. He is a marketing whiz.

Brady will be 37 next year he can't play forever can he? Tannehill sucks & Geno sucks.

Unfortunately, Brady is showing no signs of slowing down. Wouldn't doubt he plays for another 5 years (give or take a year or two).

Agreed. But, the Bills have proven that they are not the sharpest tools in the shed and will stick with Manuel for another 2 years before drafting another QB.

Great question because he already played his one big card last year with that bogus promotion and press conference that I can't believe people actually bought

I have a feeling the analytics department will become more prominent. They will use some charts to wow all of us, and we will all fall for it, because we are blinded by our undying loyalty to the Bills.

I would think he'll go with something like "The Bill's have turned the corner and the future is bright with EJ, Mario, yada yada yada."  What else has he got?

Russ will have a movie night at the Ralph in the summer and show moneyball. He'll try to convince us that he is a gm like billy Beane and will get the most out of nobodies

i think the FO has to back their GM in any stalemates between him and the coaching staff. this season's results haven't earned Marrone or anyone on his staff a trump card.  if i see changes in the staff, or their assignments, i'll see enough from ownership to know they have Whaley's back

I think it will have something to do with the Toronto series...if they can get out of the contract they will or they will announce it won't be renewed...

I agree.  They almost have to do this.  Would probably go a long way in retaining guys like Byrd.  Continuing to give up a home game shows no commitment to winning.  Brandon is a complete phony with his 'do everything possible to win' talk if he doesn't dis-continue the Toronto series.

Note to the Bills, draft a big big back, add the power running game.

Hard to say but it may only take one hit for him to give it up.  He hardly seems like a guy enjoying himself.

I think Brady wants to win at least 1 more Super Bowl. I wouldn't doubt he would want to win 2 more to break Montana's Super Bowl record of 4 Super Bowl wins .

My guess for Russ' kool-aid will be another big free agent signing (similar to TO or Mario).
