Did The Bills Fire Dick Juron Prematurely?

Jauron was fired in midseason 2009. Under Jauron, Trent Edwards (excuse me while I go throw up) was our starting QB and Fitz was our backup. Fitz did start while Edwards was injured. After Jauron was fired, our defensive coordinator Perry Fewell took over for the rest of the season. When Fewell became head coach he immediately made Fitz the starter (and started Fred Jackson over Marshawn Lynch for that matter). Our team was still in shambles but we managed to scrape out a few more wins by the end of the season.

After the 2009 season was when Ralph completely cleaned out the front office. Chan Gailey and co. decided to make Trent Edwards the starting QB. After we found out he was the same QB through the first two weeks of the season (with his absolutely horrible pocket presence, staring down the checkdown receiver, not throwing the ball past the first down marker), Trent was released in favor of Fitz. And then we started seeing something from our offense last year. And now this year, with nearly a full season (and practicing) under our belt, you can see that Fitz and this offense have come a long way.

Anyhow, I don't believe Jauron was fired prematurely. Under Jauron we were always playing not to lose instead of playing to win. The offensive gameplan was always conservative, (run run pass punt for example), and usually we always kept it close with teams that we should be plummeting into the ground.

In retrospect, the Eagles screwed up not giving him a chance to be our DC. Why Reid thought an offensive line coach, who's last defensive coaching gig was at a highschool 22 years ago, would make for a good DC is beyond comprehension. We may beat the 49ers this week, but Buffalo is going to tear our defense apart in 2 weeks.

Apparently, Castillo sat in at most defensive meetings, so Reid was confident that he had a good understanding of the defense

He worked a lot with Jim Johnson, but he still lacked the experience of calling and adjusting during the actual games. This was a largely hated move when Reid did it, and it's even moreso now. Or course, Reid constantly ignoring the LB position has killed us as well.
