How differently things could have worked out for the Bills


Recommended Posts

Admittedly a year one pairing with Gase and Whaley would've been something to watch, and I say that in a "oh, look, a barrel is going over the Falls" kind of way -- not in a "look, great things are in store for this team" kind of way.

That was the Rex hire where we were completely scattergun. We interviewed about 13 people. Anyone with a pulse and a headset. 

 

I also remember though that the one guy the Pegulas said they definitely wouldn't hire was Kyle Shanahan apparently he interviewed really poor was arrogant and condescending. Bit if spice there maybe heading into our first meeting with him as a HC next week.

The story I recall was Shanahan was never going to coach in Buffalo and just used that interview to drive up his price.  It wasn't that long ago the Bills were radioactive. No one decent would come within a mile of this franchise. (I just shuddered remembering that.)

This is also a reminder to people who think that the team is still second rate -- that a few short years ago, nobody wanted to be HC of this team.  So we ended up with Jauron and Gailey and Ryan and Mr Bologna.  I'm actually surprised that many HC candidates were willing to chat in 2015 TBH.

Possible for sure. He might have been bad on purpose but the Pegulas really came away with a bad impression of him.

 

Kyle didn't get a job that round worth saying. He was hired the same offseason as Sean.

Rex wasn't that much better.  He talks a good game, though.  Wouldn't mind talking football with the guy...but keep him away from my team.

If that was his strategy then I'd have to call it an odd one.  The Bills were terrible back then, and how can you benefit from not taking an offer from a horrible team?

Can you imagine going from Rex Ryan to Adam Gase? Talk about a dystopian nightmare!


 

Is it ok to go from Rex Ryan to Adam Gase if you have Todd Bowles in between?  
 

I am asking for all the Jets Fans.  I will let all three remaining know the outcome via Instagram later.
