Prior to the release of head coach Chan Gailey, it was speculated that the Buffalo Bills wanted to upgrade the quarterback position, replacing current quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick. According to a pranked phone call which was revealed by Deadspin.com this morning, the Bills general manager Buddy Nix is not a fan of Ryan Fitzpatrick either. Deadspin was able to acquire a pranked phone call that was staged between two 20-year olds that were able to set up a phone call between Buddy Nix and Tampa Bay Buccaneers general manager Mark Dominik. Their actions will likely result in criminal charges or legal actions against the duo, but their audio that runs for 6 minutes sheds some light on the secretive inner workings of the NFL front offices.

Nix continues to say that the Bills are struggling at the...

My ode to Ryan Fitzpatrick

I wrote a piece yesterday about loyalty and Ryan Fitzpatrick's decision to stay in Buffalo.

The Fitzmagic Is Gone

There’s no finer way for the Ryan Fitzpatrick era to end in Buffalo than to have his release tipped by a Buddy Nix phone conversation that was prompted by a prank.
