Buffalo GM Takes a Shot at the Raiders

Ah...the offseason. The only time we'll have this many stories in a week about our AFC West counterparts.

This one is pretty good, though.

At Chan Gailey's introductory press conference, Buffalo Bills GM Buddy Nix took a dig at the Oakland Raiders. Nix was asked about the laundry list of candidates that various media outlets had said snubbed the Bills when they called about potentially coaching the team.

"I'm trying not to exaggerate, but we got 15 calls a day, begging for an interview and wanting this job," Nix said. "I could've hired 35 or 40 the first week. And you would be shocked at some of the names."

"Trust me, it's a good job. Don't ever think you can't fill coaching jobs even if they're bad. Oakland gets a lot of calls."

Oops?

Nix then said, "Don't say I said that. I wish I hadn't."

Nothing wrong with speaking the truth, Mr. Nix.

It's times like this I'm happy the Chiefs were so secretive about their GM and head coach search.
