Bills fans MIGHT have a reason to jump for joy…

Chan Gailey looks poised to be hired by the Buffalo Bills as their new Head Coach.  I like Chan Gailey and I think he’s a good guy with a VERY high football acumen, but I have some concerns.  (Granted, these concerns may stem from the fact that I live in Atlanta and I am privy to ALL of the Gailey-bashing that happened at the end of his tenure at Georgia Tech.)

Chan Gailey’s fate was sealed (in large part) because of Reggie Ball.  Ball was the 4-year starter at Tech who had small flashes of brilliance but was never consistent and didn’t really have the passing ability that even warranted him being a QB.  (Think Michael Vick only not as talented and not the same arm.)

So, Reggie Ball drug Chan down with bad loss after bad loss.  The Jackets never had a horrible season under Gailey, but they never reached their full potential either.  By the end Reggie Ball had become the lightning-rod that shot right down to Gailey.  Chan’s faith in Reggie cost him his job at Tech.

Now, Chan goes to Buffalo with no “surefire” QB in place and that scares me.  If he doesn’t draft a QB or pick one up in free agency the possibilities of certain disaster loom large.  I’ve said before that Tim Tebow would fit quite well in Seattle (and I still believe that).  However, if Tebow goes to Buffalo he can save Chan’s sanity, provide an offensive weapon for Chan to play with, and start Chan’s tenure off on the right foot.

I also think that whoever Chan gets at QB there is one redeeming quality of the NFL that college doesn’t have…

These aren’t kids!

I’ve thought often that Chan felt bad for Reggie and just stuck with him because he felt sorry for him.  To quote a good movie:

“We we get to Nationals, BRING IT!  Don’t slack off because you feel sorry for us.”  — Bring It On!

Chan will probably have a lot easier time cutting a grown man than demoting some poor little college kid (which will save Chan’s job in all likelihood.) 

Now, I’m not saying that Tebow fixes Chan’s problems at QB and I’m not saying Chan can’t do well with what Buffalo has, but I am saying that I’m scared for Chan.  I like him and I don’t want him to have to fall on the sword because the Bills think they have Jim Kelly when all they really have is Rick Mirer.

(And just imagine what he can do with T.O.!?) (Provided Turrull doesn’t act a fool…)
