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 antics. He’s unlikely to take offense or reprimand his top wideout for spouting off at the mouth publicly. As a Bills fan, I understand his frustration, but was he right? Is this something that should stay in house?  I mean the guy has had some pretty poor calls over the past few weeks.  What do Bills fans think? Let us know on twitter @drocksthaparty

NFL Rumors: Does Stevie Johnson Want Buffalo Bills To Replace Chan Gailey?

If Stevie Johnson gets his way, then Chan Gailey will no longer be calling the plays on offense for the Buffalo Bills.

Of course, Johnson wants that someone else to be starting quarterback, Ryan Fitzpatrick...

Stevie Johnson thinks Ryan Fitzpatrick should be calling plays

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.

Lack of big-play passing game hurting Bills' offense

BY DAN BEGNOCHEQuarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick had his fair share of missed opportunities downfield in the Buffalo's Bills' loss on Sunday.

Mario finally showing up, earning some of that $100M

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...

Chan Gailey's Ego is killing Buffalo

"You can win the World Series without Babe Ruth.'' On a few occasions, Chan Gailey would tell his coaches this before the Bills hired him as coach. Now, you could view it as being a way to say we can get a team full of good players and win without a star player. It is a team game, right? Standard coach speaking. However, after about two and half seasons worth of...

STATS MAN: Steelers Pass Defense Second to None

Despite the fact that the 1978 Buffalo Bills were not a very good team, they hold a prestigious modern-day NFL team record (essentially by default).  The Chuck Knox-coached Bills finished 5-11, with opposing teams licking their chops in anticipation of pounding the ball against the porous Bills rushing defense; that season, Buffalo allowed an average of 201.8 rushing YPG, and allowed...

Third-down woes continue to doom Bills, Jets

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...

Game Recap: Colts 20, Bills 13

  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...

7 Things I Bill-ieve Following the Buffalo Bills’ 20-13 Loss to the Indianapolis Colts

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...
