Take your pick: Jauron-Edwards or Fassel-Losman

We have a trade to propose.

J.P. Losman and Jim Fassel for Trent Edwards and Dick Jauron. Straight up.

What do you think, Buffalo Bills fans?

The proposal was raised Thursday during my weekly spot on Brad Riter's radio show on WECK in Buffalo, and I loved the idea so much I informed Riter on the spot I was stealing it for the AFC East blog.

Bills fans have been fed up with Jauron's coaching and would consider relinquishing their claim to the chicken wing for his ouster. They've had it with Edwards as their quarterback, too.

But would they take back local pariah Losman if it meant they could have Fassel instead of Jauron?

The trade isn't going to happen. I don't think the NFL will be swinging any deals with the United Football League any time soon, and that's where Fassel and Losman are working.

Fassel is head coach of the Las Vegas Locomotives. Losman is his quarterback.

Fassel, the former New York Giants coach, has a 58-53-1 career NFL record and went to the Super Bowl in 2000.

Losman became one of the more detested players in recent Bills history because he was promoted as a future star yet couldn't get the Bills to the playoffs and played a reckless style.

But I have a feeling Bills fans have mellowed on Losman in light of Edwards' ineffectiveness, lack of development and timidity.

For the record, and not that Losman's stats with Las Vegas are any indication of what kind of season he would be having in the NFL, he has completed 64.2 percent of his passes for 994 yards (7.4 yards per attempt) and eight touchdowns with two interceptions.

So what do you think, Bills fans?
