BUFFALO,. N.Y. (WIVB) - So, what does the twelfth man think about Chan Gailey?
The fans desperately wanted a coach from the NFL's "A List," butthey are willing to give Chan Gailey a chance.
After hearing from the Bills' new head coach, fan reaction seemsto be lukewarm at best.
Matthew Duggan from Blasdell said, "There is so much hope andall these new coaches. We'll see what he can do. My doubt's onwhether he can pull it off or not."
Bob LaPorta from Orchard Park commented, "Hopefully this guywill work out. He's said he's going to be the coach and theoffensive coordinator so we'll know who to blame right away."
Online sports publisher Patrick Moran put all his money, andthousands more, on Super Bowl winner Bill Cowher. Moran says raisedmoney on behalf of the fans to put that message in lights on thisbillboard, but he is not completely disappointed with Gailey.
Moran said, "The good news is Bill Cowher recommended him."
And Gailey, who was Cowher's offensive coordinator atPittsburgh, acknowledged Cowher's influence on him.
Gailey explained, "I learned about how to be a head coach,probably more from him than anybody else I've been around, throughmy years."
"When the Bills were pursuing Cowher, Cowher gave a strongrecommendation for him and he also said that if he was to return tocoaching this year, he would bring Gailey along with him on hisstaff," said Moran.
But Moran believes, as many other fans, getting a good coach isonly part of the puzzle. Getting the right players is theother.
Sean said, "They have to bring in the players. It's more theplayers than the coaches right now."
"He's got to be better than Dick Jauron if he keeps his eyesopen!" said LaPorta.
How much time is Moran going to give the new coach?
Moran said, "I've already had people, in message boards andstuff like that, they've been e-mailing me about getting a "FireChan Gailey" billboard up. Let's give the guy a little bit oftime."
