Found November 04, 2012 on Buffalo Wins:
I hate to open up old wounds, but remember how much we hated Kevin Gilbride in 2003? Yes, it seems silly now since he's done wonders with Eli in NY, but during his time with the Bills, he was the most scrutinized coordinator l can remember since, um, Dave Wannstedt? His biggest problem was that he had a team that was built to run. He only had one WR (Eric Moulds), an average QB (Bledsoe) and a bunch of scrub WRs. Yet, he had a big offensive line, a killer fullback (Sam Gash) and Travis Henry. So, what does football 101 tell you to do? You run the fricken football.  What did Gilbride do? He passed the football. Constantly. The Bills were 5-1 in 2003 when they ran the ball more than they passed it. They ended up finishing the season 6-10. You do the math. It ended up costing Gilbride and Gregg Williams their jobs. I've said this a few times over the summer that I felt Chan Gailey had some characteristics of the evil Kevin Gilbride of 2003. Whether it was parlay betting...

I’m Buying: CJ Spiller

I can run on anyone Juan… CJ Spiller is one of the most electric RBs in the NFL, but is getting held back by his coach.  I reported hat Chan Gailey wants to get the RB more touches, but it remains to seen if he will. Spiller has 78/562/4 on the season which is good for 7.2 YPC.  That is off the charts ridiculous.  Add in the 24/236/1 through the air and you have one of the most...
