The Bills are a team in disarray. And the problem starts with owners Terry and Kim Pegula, who sat out the season ending press conference. They sent general manager Doug Whaley to stand in. Whaley fumbled throughout the media event, claiming he had no advance knowledge of Rex Ryan’s firing. Surely that is a blatant lie. The credibility of senior management has reached a new low. Social media abounds with fan dissatisfaction. THE BUFFALO FAITHFUL DESERVE HONEST ANSWERS FOR YET ANOTHER FAILED SEASON. DISGUSTED AND BETRAYED WE STRUGGLE TO REMAIN 1BUFFALO,
The Bills lost to the Jets 30 – 10 in the season finale. The embarrassing debacle at the Meadowlands left little reason for hope. Presumptive coach Anthony Lynn disappointed in his debut. E J Manuel sputtered in his return to action. LeSean McCoy and Sammy Watkins left the game with injuries. Mercifully the 2017 season is now over. Bills fans are left to wonder how much lower things can descend. OWNERS TERRY AND KIM PEGULA ARE LEFT TO PICK UP THE PIECES. THE DAUNTING TASK OF FINDING BOTH A HEAD COACH AND STARTING QUARTERBACK LOOMS LARGE. THE FAITHFUL DESERVE BETTER. DISPIRITED WE MUST REGROUP AND REMAIN 1BUFFALO.
Happy New Year 2017. The Editors extend all best wishes to our Readers for good health, satisfaction, and prosperity in the New Year. Bills fans can hope for a turn around in the deeply troubled franchise. A win today versus the Jets will make for a 500 season. All eyes will be on E J Manuel as he strives to regain the starting berth. HERE’S HOPING THE NEW YEAR WILL BRING MEANINGFUL CHANGE TO 1 BILLS DRIVE. THE PEGULAS WILL BE ENTERING THEIR FOURTH YEAR AS OWNERS AND FANS EXPECT PROGRESS. AT THE THRESHOLD OF 2017 WE HOPE FOR BETTER TIMES. LOYALISTS ALL WE REMAIN 1BUFFALO.
The Bills are a team in turmoil. The firing of Coach Ryan and brother Rob caps another gut wrenching season. Tyrod Taylor has been benched and is reportedly history. LeSean McCoy and Sammy Watkins speak openly of a lack of discipline among the players. Ownership is silent throughout the controversy. LONG SUFFERING BILLS FANS DESERVE EXPLANATIONS. THE PLAYOFF DROUGHT NOW EXTENDS TO 17 YEARS. HOW MUCH MORE SHOULD THE FAITHFUL ENDURE. WITH HEAVY HEARTS WE STAND SHAKEN AS 1BUFFALO.
The Bills will be playing for pride Sunday against the Jets. Amid turmoil over the firing of Coach Ryan and brother Rob and the benching of Tyrod Taylor, Buffalo takes the field at New York. All eyes will be on E J Manuel as starting quarterback. A win will give the Bills a 500 record for the season. Interim coach Anthony Lynn will audition for the head coach job. THE SEARCH BEGINS FOR THE NEW COACH. EVEN 91 YEAR OLD MARV LEVY HAS SAID HE WILL ACCEPT THE JOB IF OFFERED. AMID UNCERTAINTY OVER THE TEAMS FUTURE WE LOYALLY REMAIN 1BUFFALO.
Bills offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn will be the interim head coach. He takes over a team in disarray following the firing of Rex Ryan and brother Rob. Lynn is considered a candidate to replace Ryan. Buffalo announced that E J Manuel will start as quarterback against the Jets. The move follows the benching of Tyrod Taylor who is being shown the exits. THE BILLS ARE BACK TO SQUARE ONE WITH FAILED HEAD COACH AND QUARTERBACK. THE PEGULAS HAVE SERIOUSLY MISCALCULATED BY NOT STAYING THE COURSE. EXPECT MORE OF THE SAME AS THE FRANCHISE FLOUNDERS. DESPITE ADVERSITY WE REMAIN UNITED AS 1BUFFALO.
We give thanks to Rex Ryan for two years of credible Bills football. Two years of 500 ball are solid for a franchise in such internal turmoil. Terry and Kim Pegula have seriously erred in dismissing the head coach after so short a time. It will be more of the same at One Bills Drive. The Pegulas failed to recognize that the underlying problem is Doug Whaley who needs to go. Now the search begins for a successor. Whoever is tapped is likely to flounder next year. THE WELL INTENTIONED PEGULAS LACK EXPERIENCE IN RUNNING PROFESSIONAL SPORTS FRANCHISES. THE FIRING OF COACH RYAN IS THEIR BIGGEST BLUNDER TO DATE. WITH HEAVY HEARTS WE LOYALLY REMAIN 1BUFFALO.
Preparations are underway to bring on the Jets. The Bills meet their AFC East division rival this Sunday at the Meadowlands. A win will give Buffalo a 500 record for the season. Beyond playing for pride, the coaches and players will be playing for their jobs. The Pegulas must act responsibly and continue with Rex Ryan. Otherwise there would be 4 head coaches in the last 4 years. A VICTORY AGAINST NEW YORK WILL BE A GREAT WAY TO CLOSE OUT 2016. UNITED IN OUR SUPPORT FOR COACH RYAN AND BROTHER ROB, WE ARE ALL 1BUFFALO.
Tis the season to take stock of the Bills. At 7 – 8 they have been eliminated from the playoffs. But if they win next Sundays finale with the Jets they can finish with an 8 – 8 record. 2 consecutive 500 years is significant. It would provide a base to improve upon next season. Buffalo now ranks in the middle echelon of NFL teams. With further player development and help from the draft a playoff berth is within reach. The key is to stay the course with Coach Ryan. BUFFALO CAN NOT AFFORD ANOTHER ROUND OF MUSICAL CHAIRS AT HEAD COACH. REX RYAN HAS DELIVERED SOLID FOOTBALL IN HIS FIRST 2 YEARS. HE HAS RENEWED PRIDE AND HOPE. STANDING TALL WITH HIM AND THE ENTIRE FOOTBALL DEPARTMENT, WE ARE ALL 1BUFFALO.
Merry Christmas to all our readers. The Editors extend holiday greetings for good health, satisfaction, and prosperity in 2017. The Bills came up short yesterday versus the Dolphins at New Era Field. We encourage the Pegulas to exercise restraint before making major personnel moves. There is still hope for a 500 season with a win next Sunday on the road at the Jets. THE WESTERN NEW YORK COMMUNITY IS GRATEFUL TO TERRY AND KIM FOR THEIR COMMITMENT AND LEADERSHIP. IN THIS SEASON OF GOOD WILL WE HOPE THEY WILL TREAT REX RYAN AND BROTHER ROB RESPONSIBLY. HAVING RENEWED OUR SPIRIT, WE STAND WITH THEM AS 1BUFFALO.
