Inside the Bills:
Here’s a quote about Chan Gailey from a certain Ivy League quarterback.
“I learned a tremendous among from him and I had an opportunity to start a few of the games when he was our head coach.

On Wednesday Chris Hairston took his fair share of reps as the starting left tackle, but that changed on Thursday. Hairston was behind Levitre at left tackle in the rotation Thursday. No word if Hairston sustained a setback, but it has head coach Chan Gailey leaning toward starting Levitre on the blind side for the third straight week Sunday.
“If I had to guess right now I’d...
ARLINGTON, Texas In a stretch of the season where the Dallas Cowboys had to stack wins to remain in the playoff conversation, the surprising Buffalo Bills were supposed to provide a major test. But former Cowboys head coach Chan Gailey and his players never had a chance in a 44-7 loss at Cowboys Stadium.
It was the most dominating performance of the Jason Garrett era, and it could...
First, a salute to all our veterans on this Fan Friday. Thanks for your service. It does not go unappreciated. Now on to your questions from AskChris@bills.nfl.net.
1 - Why are the Bills not throwing the ball down field? They would open up the run game with some long pass plays. Even when they have a 3rd and 5+ they are throwing 2 or 3 yard passes. Teams will be looking at this and...
