Poll: Chan Gailey's future with Bills?

By James Walker

The Buffalo Bills lost another close game Sunday against the St. Louis Rams, 15-12. It was the fourth loss by seven points or fewer and again puts head coach Chan Gailey's future in question.

Gailey coached another poor game with several head-scratching decisions. Why didn't the Bills go for two when leading 12-7? Why did Bills tailback C.J. Spiller only get seven carries? Why do the Bills continue to let opponents hang around, which hurt the team once again?

This was expected to be a playoff year for the Bills (5-8), but it won’t happen. They will extend their postseason drought to 13 years.

Should it cost Gailey his job? This is the best team he’s had in Buffalo but failed to make the team reach its potential. The Bills have underachieved and Gailey is a major reason. He failed to use his best weapon (Spiller) most of the season and his in-game decisions as offensive coordinator can be baffling at times. He is 15-30 as the Bills' head coach.

Or does Gailey deserve another year? The Bills still have a chance to improve on last year's 6-10 record. If Gailey wins two of his last three games, he can say the team is getting better. Bills general manager Buddy Nix has publicly backed his head coach. Do you agree?
