Well, they've outlasted more than a few good and decent Buffalo fans. At this point I'm more about my kids enjoying it. They've seen me toss a few remotes toward the tv in a fit of rage, should balance that out nicely. Plus, I'm not so sure we're not actually in Dante's shack already, or at least in the waiting room?

No, everything the Bills do is great, everyone wants to work here and every player wants to play here


Must be true judging by the recent hires. More that than the dumpster fire from four months ago.

Still no confirmation on this one. I don't know if will happen today but he's college and Boyd is pro so thinking his hire yesterday wouldn't affect this one. Adding a ? to thread title for now.

Shame he's not involved with the salary cap, could've made a Hagler joke.

This is called Terry getting out his check book. He's realizing it starts at the top and his job is to just write the checks.

Was Allen still under contract with KC? Or was he available? Is this a demotion in title? Seems like it to me. Director of college scouting to national scout? I was kind of expecting him to be named director of college scouting here...

Anyway, just curious. Definitely happy with the hire.

Probably contract up. I bet he got a raise though. So he gets a raise and just scouts.

Not that I really care, but I do wonder if other teams around the league give you the old stink eye if you start jacking up pay for scouts and front office people? Buy the best staff. Hey, no salary cap!

Faced with the reality they would lose him one way or another, the Oakland Raiders traded Coach Jon Gruden to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday for four draft picks--two first-rounders and two second-rounders--and $8 million.

Beane was just on radio talking about him.. sounded like he was under contract but they were able to get him out of that because KC was doing some FO shuffling. He said his name came up late for that reason and was surprised he was going to be able to get him.
