Under-the-radar guy. Being the Bills DC would explain that reasoning. Good hire, even though he might be their only choice.

I'm so-so on this but it is nice to see that Buffalo thinks they will really miss him. Sounds like people are saying good things about him.

That's a bit different than last year when we hired Chud and his former players lashed out about him.

I just hope he is able to stick around.

It's going to be interesting how the presser will go.

"Mike, how do you feel about the fact that the previous coach was fired after a 4-12 season, and other candidates have turned down the job?"

Id expect to hear that exact question. Given that the last presser we had, the owner got asked if he was one of the three stooges.

How is this a good hire? He was a below-average coordinator who's defenses were at their best when he WAS NOT calling the plays.

Rex fired his own guy for a reason.

Rex didn't fire him, his contract was up and Pettine decided to move on from rex's shadow. I'd say that has worked out quite well for him.

The Bills defense this past season was top 5 in most categories. You have no idea what the [inappropriate/removed] you're talking about.

Why? Feels like another coach who will be canned after 2-3 years.
Don't like the hiring at all. Rinse, Wash and Repeat it seems.

Oh is that what happened? Inside information, maybe?

Never believe bad teams... We were told by Lion fans how awesome,

Tim Walton was.. Dude was disgustingly bad, We regressed and we

were running on talent alone.. Cleveland has some awesome defensive

talent, But they had a mastermind DC and still looked bad at times.

Rex didn't fire him, his contract was up. And it looks like he made a good decision because 1 yr on his own and hes getting a HC job.

I used fired/let go synonymous.

Pettine was another name down a long list of potential hires. This was more so luck than qualification.

Clowney might be in play at pick 4 if we go to a 4-3

There's a difference between a good unit (our defense) and a good team.

2012 without Pettine
2013 with Pettine

12 INTs in 2012
23 INTs in 2013

36.0 sacks in 2012
57.0 sacks in 2013

10th in passing YPG in 2013
4th in passing YPG in 2013

5.0 YPC and 148 rushing YPG in 2012
4.4 YPC and 128 rushing YPG in 2013

Not to mention we sent Mario Williams, Marcell Dareus, Kyle Williams and Jairus Byrd all to the pro bowl from our defense. With Kiko getting robbed instead of Poz and Johnson.. I'd say sending 4 defenders to the pro bowl and having the defensive rookie of the year all on the same unit is pretty impressive. Not to mention he got 10 sacks out of Jerry Hughes and all of our starters on our DL had over 8 sacks.

He's a Rex Ryan disciple and proved last year he didn't need to be in Rex's shadow anymore. It was a great hire and I'm upset he's gone.
