    Per Jay Glazer.

    What an awful franchise. I'd genuinely hate to be a fan of that team.

    Any of you clowns disappointed with keeping Wade and Garrett should be relieved we have them. Wade/Garrett might not be elite, but they are nowhere near as bad as some teams situations.

    I think Gailey is a good choice for the Bills.

    They need someone with a good offensive mind and he does.

    I liked Gailey, always thought Jerry gave him a really raw deal. Best of luck to him, but what a hard situation.

    Gailey hasnt been a good head coach on the pro or college level. They would of been better off pursuing Garrett.

    I will never forget him. In 1998 on the road it didn't matter what the score was. After halftime the other team was coming back to win.

    That's what the Bills want...problem is, no one wants anything to do with the Bills. Scrapping the barrel just get someone to come in for an interview let alone hire.

    Also, after firing your coach (Jauron) 3 months ago to get a "head start" on the coaching race and still not having a coach??? If I'm a player am I even remotely going there in free agency? Not a chance. It's a tire fire.

    It will be long time before that ship rises from the bottom and that ship may rise in a different city when this is all said and done.

    Ahhh, the downward comparisons are always good for pumping up one's ego.

    Hey, I might be fat but at least I'm not that fat.

    Hey, I might be ugly but look how ugly that guy is.

    Hey, our coaches aren't great but those coaches really suck.

    I really hope I'm missing the sarcasm here because Gailey, as Chiefs OC, was demoted just 3 preseason games into this past season and had his playcalling duties stripped away by Todd Haley.

    Report: Gailey expected to be next Bills head coach
    Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on January 18, 2010 5:17 PM ET

    We have a new leader in the clubhouse for the Bills head coaching position.

    Jay Glazer of Fox reports that Chan Gailey is expected to meet with the Bills for a second time Monday. Barring a breakdown in talks, he should be named the coach in the next 24-48 hours.

    It's a stunning turn because Gailey's name has not been mentioned previously for the job, and his meeting with the Bills last week was in secret.

    Gailey, 58, would not be a particularly splashy pick for the Bills. But he would fit G.M. Buddy Nix's profile: He's an offensive coach with head coaching experience.

    Gailey ran the Cowboys in the late 90's and has offensive coordinator stints in Pittsburgh, Miami, and last with Kansas City. He was the head coach at Georgia Tech from 2002-2007 and is known for a run-first approach.

    We can't help but wonder if Gailey's name came up when the Bills pursued Bill Cowher. When Cowher stepped down in Pittsburgh, he recommended Gailey to be his successor.

    No one wants the job because Ralph Wilson is 90 years old, and his family has stated that they will sell the team when he passes. Couple that with the possibility of the team moving, and it's understandable why coaches are running away from this job. Gailey doesn't have many other options, so this is the kind of candidate to expect.

    I don't blame the Bills - I blame the circumstances.

    Another memory: I still remember Jones walking about 10 feet behind him after we lost to Minnesota in the playoffs. Then he let him get ripped for a few days before firing him. Not nice of Jerry. Chan even held a press conference saying he thought he was fired.

    Most people dont remember that Jones didnt out and out fire Gailey, he wanted Gailey to hire a new offensive coordinator. Gailey refused and then got canned.

    The guy's one of the most mediocre coaches I've ever seen. He'll never be a big time winner at any level, and he's proven that.

    Yes, now it's all coming back.

    You have to wonder about these teams who hire coaches that have failed everywhere else. Kinda borders on insanity.
