THE RIGHT FIT: Wilson said of Nix, "I know Buddy. I know he's done a good job wherever he's been. ... I'm not looking for big names. I'm looking for somebody that can get the job done. I think he can." More Wilson: "There's one caveat. I don't think it's going to come immediately. Because I think you build a football team through the draft. You can go out in free agency and sign a few that might fit your team. But you just can't go out and sign a lot of free agents and do it overnight. It's going to take time to turn things around. But we're not that far away" (BUFFALO NEWS, 1/1). In Buffalo, Jerry Sullivan noted Brandon had "been telling people that, given a chance, he would knock this hire out of the park," but instead he "hit a bloop single." The Bills have "done the easy thing, the weak and short-sighted thing." Instead of "reaching for the stars, they reached across the hall and plucked out Nix" (BUFFALO NEWS, 1/1).
