What about Chan Gailey for OC

There I said it.

Not sure what the terms of his remaining contract with Buffalo is, but he had success with Kordell "Slash" Stewart. Hell he even made Ryan Fitzpatrick and Jay Fielder look like NFL QBs.

Imagine what he could do with a Cam Newton.

And it is no secret that he actually prefers dual threat QBs.

i know he had issues in KC, but honestly that offense had no talent and he has plenty of resume material at other stops along the way.

So fug it, why not. Not sure if it is even possible with his coaching contract with Buffalo, but he seems like he could be a good fit for our talent.

Maybe? Seems exactly like chud. I mean he's got CJ Spiller and only gives him 15 touches a game and throws the rest of the time...

Logical. Buffalo did interview Cam, so I am assuming they studied him up.

Cam was the highest player on their board that year, unfortunately they were pick #3.

Kuechly was the highest player on their board last year, they picked at #10.

This isn't speculation either, there is a massive amount of my family members that live in the buffalo area and a few of them work in the organization and a few more have ties to higher ups.

Isn't Gailey fired? Why would it matter what his Bills contract says?

We play Buffalo this season... Once he was fired he said "This is the one team I'll root for that fired me". Can't hire the man he wouldn't call the game fair lol

Maybe. And I can't honestly say I recall clearly because it was a long time ago, but I don't seem to remember him relying that heavily on the pass when he was in Pittsburgh, Denver, or Dallas.

i think that may be more of a product of Buffalo being behind a lot.

Because he still has at least 1 year on his contract. Sometimes it is stipulated that you won't get paid if you accept another coaching job before your contract is over. Or that they will pay the difference between the contracts if you are getting paid less than he was at Buffalo.

So, if he wouldn't get paid if he gets another job then I don't imagine he would take a job with a coach on the hotseat when he can get paid head coach money to sit on the beach or work in a booth commentating.

Again, if Buffalo only paid the difference, he could not work and get paid the same amount as he would to be the coordinator so he may want to take a year off and just get paid and not do anything.

If there are no stipulations like that, he might jump at a chance to add to his income and get paid by the Panthers and Buffalo.

It just depends on what his contract says to how feasible it is.
