Some things never change. Week after week it’s more apparent that Chan Gailey has no idea what he’s doing. Unfortunately, Buddy Nix gave him a vote of confidence for next year. Buffalo’s only chance of Gailey being let go is if Ralph Wilson Jr. steps in and makes the call. With that scenario being unlikely, it looks more and more like 2013 will be another season with Gailey at the helm.
Here’s to hoping Wilson makes the move and brings in a top assistant in the league. With that said, here are some things I “Bill-ieve” following the Bills 20-13 loss to the Indianapolis Colts.
1. Dave Wannstedt deserves some props.
I’ve bashed Wannstedt on here numerous times, so after back-to-back strong performances on defense, I have to give him praise. Wannstedt’s defense has given up 20 points in the last two weeks. And while the Dolphins and Colts aren’t going to be confused with the Patriots offensively, they aren’t incompetent teams offensively.
Over the last two weeks, the Bills defense has ...

The Carolina-Clemson rivalry got the best of former Tiger C.J. Spiller over the weekend.
Buffalo Bills teammate Stephon Gilmore, a former USC player of course, tweeted the above picture as part of bet that Spiller lost involving their former teams and the rivalry matchup this past Saturday.
Via Twitter, Gilmore wrote: “The moment you have all been waiting for. C.J. Spiller has...
The Buffalo Bills fell to the Indianapolis Colts 20-13 on Sunday for their fourth loss in five games, and wide receiver Stevie Johnson wants some changes.
Johnson said after the game that he would like to see quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick begin calling more plays instead of head coach Chan Gailey.
“How I see it, I think we need to let our quarterback call these plays,” Johnson...
Receiver Stevie Johnson and the Buffalo Bills' offense suddenly have one thing in common. Both are moving in reverse.
Johnson on Monday backpedaled away from comments he made a day earlier, when he questioned coach Chan Gailey's play calling following a 20-13 loss at Indianapolis. Johnson now says he misspoke.
Rather than suggesting Ryan Fitzpatrick should take over more...
Following Sunday’s loss to the Colts, Stevie Johnson said he wants coach Chan Gailey to give up play-calling duties.Johnson posted a 6/106/0 line, but he wasn’t happy afterward. “How I see it, I think we need to let our quarterback call these plays,” he said. “He’s out there on the field. He sees the adjustments that need to be done.” Gailey is accustomed to Johnson’s...
Bills QB Ryan Fitzpatrick has only thrown six touchdown passes over his last seven games after tossing 12 in the first four.Fantasy Spin:Fitzpatrick only had 180 yards with one score and one pick Sunday against the Colts, the fourth time in the last eight games he's finished with less than 200 yards passing.
Being a resident of Western New York, I have many friends who are Buffalo Bills fans. I have watched their frustration pile up as the the Bills dropped to 4-7 after a sluggish 20-13 loss to the Indianapolis Colts Sunday. Blame is all over the place, but success always starts and ends from the top down. Head Coach Chan Gailey, who also doubles as the team’s play-caller, has been...
The Buffalo Bills lost a game Sunday, but they gained something else. Call it what you will. Defensive end Mario Williams, who was invisible through the first part of the season but has been finding himself as of late, had a sort of coming-out party during the Bills' 20-13 loss to the Indianapolis Colts. Williams accounted for three of Buffalo's four sacks on Andrew Luck...
The slimmest of slim playoff hopes hung in the balance entering this week. Those hopes were still in play late into the fourth quarter before being, quite literally, punted away.
Chan Gailey twice punted in situations where he could have pressed to put points on the board, once in the first half from the Indianapolis 34 and again late in the game on fourth and eight at...
Bills coach Chan Gailey says C.J. Spiller will receive 60 percent of the carries going forward with Fred Jackson getting the other 40 percent. SOURCE: Tim Graham, Buffalo News.Fantasy Spin:Spiller is approaching his first 1,000 yard season having surpassed Jackson as the featured back in Buffalo. Unfortunately, he's encountered a bit of a touchdown drought. He hasn't scored...
The Buffalo Bills' defense sacked Andrew Luck four times, picked him off once and held the Colts' run game to 3 yards a carry.Also, Buffalo's ground game gained 5.9 yards of its own. The Bills just needed Ryan Fitzpatrick to deliver. And he didn't. Fitzpatrick missed a pair of would-be touchdown passes in the first half and was inaccurate for most of the game, yet...
Lead writer Nick St. Denis and AFC East Daily contributors Dan Begnoche and Sean Donovan pick the Buffalo Bills' road contest against the Indianapolis Colts. Nick's take: Bills tailback C.J. Spiller is slated for a big day against a Colts run defense that gives up way too many big scampers. Ryan Fitzpatrick will be good enough, and Buffalo's rushing attack will limit...
The Buffalo Bills entered Sunday's AFC contest against the Indianapolis Colts with the NFL's worst third-down defense, and they made good on their reputation. Buffalo allowed the Colts to convert on eight of 16 third-down attempts. Conversely, the Bills moved the chains on just four of 13 third-down tries. The New York Jets haven't been able to get off the field lately...
