BY NICK ST. DENISAt the back end of another season gone south despite very high preseason hopes, questions about Chan Gailey's suitability as head coach of the Buffalo Bills -- or anywhere -- are becoming more and more prevalent. The Bills are 15-30 in a little less than three full seasons under Gailey. They were 20-28 the three seasons prior to him taking over. But quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who has drawn plenty of criticism himself, thinks Buffalo has made progress under Gailey."... unfortunately our record is not where we want it to be but I think we have made progress since he has been here. I really do," Fitzpatrick said, via BuffaloBills.com. "We have to find a way to win these close games."... I think we have made progress. I think there is a belief in this locker room. He is a guy that, I know I am and a lot of guys in this locker room are going to be tremendously loyal to him for giving us a chance."No one is discounting the notion that Gaile...

Chan Gailey gives up too soon: Eliminates Bills from playoff race prematurely

It's one thing to throw on the towel; for Chan Gailey, he might want to wait until the bell rings. After losing to go 5-8, Gailey said on Monday morning: “The playoffs are out of the picture for us now,” Gailey said in his post-game press conference.

The Bills make me want to ‘SHOUT’

Not in the way the so-called “theme song” for the team had intended. The Buffalo Bills blew a six-point lead at halftime against a sub par Rams team at home, and were getting booed more than cheered for a good part of the game.

Bills’ C.J. Spiller frustrated by lack of touches

It's been an extremely disappointing year for the Buffalo Bills. A 2012 campaign that began with Super Bowl aspirations is going to end in a familiar place: the AFC basement.

Buffalo Bills’ Quarterback Options For 2013

Throughout the year, blame for the Buffalo Bills’ disappointing record has been split between head coach Chan Gailey and quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick. Chan Gailey has been using the most predictable offense to date in recent games, and his play calling and decision making has become rather ridiculous. His reasoning for some of these decisions have been equally absurd. Fitzpatrick...

BREAKING NEWS: Chan Gailey has a history of rushing the football!!

I know. The shock of reading the headline may match the stunning news of hearing that Luke Skywalker was the son of Darth Vader or that the chick in the Crying Game wasn't a chick or that Ned Stark's head would be rolling down the street in Kings Landing or that Bruce Willis is in fact, dead.

On letting go

Ever since I got into the business of sports journalism, I knew that at one point I could no longer root for the teams I grew up loving. I never knew it would be this easy. You see, for sports writers, cheering in the press box is akin to breaking a Ten Commandment. You don’t do it. Other writers don’t do it. And if someone does it —athletic department interns —...
