      On one hand I hope so so that they can get a better player in the draft. On the other, it would be nice to actually maintain a winning mentality in Buffalo that might make veterans want to stick around, free agents to give them more than a slight consideration and for the team to buy into a program...

      I'd rather they went 8-8 or something and strung together some solid performances, get some experience out of Williams and Searcy so we can see what they need to invest in the secondary in the offseason.

      • Dudes, Maybin getting sacks last weekend pissed me off more than anything else this season. No joke. If he turns it around and at least becomes average I'll be so mad...

          Well, you had better start being angry. Somebody in the organization pulled the trigger too fast.
          In the current NFL, depth is really important. Injuries are so common today because of the leagues playing surfaces and indoor stadiums that substitutes often are called upon to play for injured players and rotations are also a necessity.
          Face it, under Wilson's tight budget, this team has little depth and it was going to catch up with us sooner or later.
          I don't blame the starters, they showed that if healthy they could compete, but the substitutes just aren't there when players go down or need a rotation to keep them playing tough through 4 quarters.
          And proud of it!!!

          • Honestly, I think that OLB really was the one defensive position where we didn't look like we had some depth on defense. Which is hilariously dumb considering who our starters were, making the Maybin situation even worse.
            I know guys like A. Williams, Troup, and Carrington are really young, but they're here to play roles on this team. Troup's injuries and Dareus' unsure role made the defensive line depth a bit tough to read, but there were enough guys that looked solid or promising enough. Injuries to guys like Kyle Williams are just really hard to compensate for. It might have worked as rotational depth, but not takeover depth.
            The veteran ends and corners have been very disappointing (though it's not a group of ends to expect much out of on their own, admittedly).

            The lack of offensive line depth is the killer on offense. Clearly a huge problem that we almost looked to be getting away with for a little while. That's the one along with OLB that I would have shared in depth complaints about before the injuries.

            • Every week, being a Bills fan, is like finding out your girlfriend of 20 years has had AIDS, and hasn't told you, even though you've seen her taking every bit of her medicine all along. So you are the stupid one for not realizing, and now guess what, you have AIDS too. That, sir, is how being a Bills fan feels.

                Well, I'm a fan of Cleveland( they showed their games on Toronto TV when I was a kid, (before the Bills existed), also a fan of Buffalo since they first existed and finally a fan of Detroit where I currently live near for the last 25 years.
                That's a motley crew of teams for the last decade or more, so you can multiply by 3, the pain I have gone through.
                Thank God, Detroit has finally given me one team with some real hope, it makes all the years in the dessert, with all three of my teams, worth the wait.
                Just maybe, next year we'll see Buffalo move up the ladder but I'm not holding my breath as long as Wilson owns the team.

                • Best line I heard during the game:

                  "Tim Tebow might be able to walk on water, but he can't cross the Moats."

                  • Other people might call it a reach, but give me Michael Floyd. I don't think there will be any value for defensive players left when the Bills are picking and Floyd should be an instant upgrade. I also don't buy the need for a first round offensive lineman, unless they find a pro bowl lineman I don't think picking anyone in the 1st would present any significant upgrade considering how well the line performed this year, they just need to add more depth either in free agency or the later rounds of the draft. After grabbing Floyd in the 1st, in my opinion they should spend the rest of the picks on the best defensive player available (except maybe Safety and inside linebacker until the third day, at which point anything goes).

                    • I share the desire for a receiver. Tackle might have the most value at the pick and it does kind of make sense. Bell might not be back and shifting from Freddy to Spiller may also hurt protection. That help was very necessary once Bell first went out and really hurt the offense when the backs couldn't be out catching balls. I don't know if the organization values the position that highly, though. In the 4th round, Hairston was our highest drafted tackle since Mike Williams. They more or less got away with 58 different line combinations this year, using no-name guys. The idea of a reliable left tackle would set a nice core for the offense, but then we're still relying on minimal talent in the passing game that did little to help us after Week 3. I can understand the desire to address the outside weapons after building from the trenches, but I can't see the passing game succeeding with its current level of talent. It's at a very unstable point right now, but I think it could work wonders if Stevie and Chandler are kept and a top receiver is added.

                      • I know this is nothing new, but we really need some emergence at the #2 WR spot. It would just be so huge for this offense, along with Glenn being a LT. I'm freaking out already and NHL free agency hasn't even started yet. This year is going to kill me.

                          As Bills fans, gentlemen, it's only right to take a second and bow our heads in a moment of silence for our fallen friend. Through 12 pitiful years of Bills football, Brian Moorman has been a stalwart on the field, a leader in the locker room, and a patron of the Western New York community. Though only the punter, Moorman was truly the player of the decade. Though today's news was not what I wanted to hear, I understand motive behind the move. To be frank, Brian is 36 and has not played up to par this entire regular season. Perhaps it was time to hang up the cleats, that one snow shoe, and to retire from football altogether. Regardless, he's my favorite player and I'm absolutely appreciative of Brian's fine work over the past 12 seasons, and I can do nothing but thank him for that. He'll be sorely missed.

                          • Truly a local hero. The punting prowess, trick play abilities, and fantastic personality made him an easy fan favorite. I hope to still see him around the community in the future.

                              • ****......I have been out of the loop this week with work and missed the news. It may make sense from a football standpoint, but, I'm still hurting. He defines everything it should mean to be a Buffalo Bill.
