Babin Claim Shows Bills Want To Win

According to some reports, the Buffalo Bills were one of eight teams who put in a bid for Jason Babin, who was released by the Philadelphia Eagles yesterday. Babin, a nine year NFL veteran, has 5.5 sacks and 26 total tackles this season with the struggling Eagles. As usual Babin was awarded to the team with the worst record, which happens to be the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Bills’ next opponent. Even though the Bills did not acquire Babin, it is still a notable move for the team. Many fans are very angry with the Bills right now. Many are calling for Chan Gailey to be fired, for Buddy Nix to step down, or for the whole management team to be blown apart. Even though the Bills have had their struggles, there is one thing that you can’t fault the Bills for. They are not being cheap. When a team is underproducing the first thing many fans say is that the owner is being cheap. They aren’t bringing in the quality of players neccessary to really be a competitive team. Can you really make that point about the Bills after this year? The team signed the biggest name in free agency, Mario Williams, to the biggest contract any defensive player has ever recieved. Even though he has underproduced at points you can’t place the blame on Nix. They did not stop there, adding another defensive end in Mark Anderson. Now they tried to acquire another player, at the same position notably, who comes with a hefty price tag of $4.335 million.

    Fans need to be patient with Nix and Gailey. Although I think Chan’s made some bad decisions this year, I think the team on a whole is on the right track in getting and developing talent. Nix is doing his job well, Chan needs to be more flexible in doing his, and the Bills need to figure out a way to resolve the question of what happens after Mr. Wilson is gone – one way or another. I know it’s hard to be patient, but if the team follows up on getting QBs to challenge Fitz next year, and retunes their offensive plans, while continuing to develop their defense, I think they can start some winning streaks.

    They are certainly in MUCH better shape than the massively dysfunctional Jets!
