    On the heels of another disappointing season and persistent rumors of relocation, Bills owner Ralph Wilson has made sweeping changes to begin 2010. The new leadership of Silverphin and dukane5 put their first imprints on this team by putting the finishing touches on the Bill Cowher led coaching staff.
    Former Seattle and Atlanta head coach, Jim Mora Jr., heads up the defense and believes that the new direction the team is taking is exciting and will lead to a more enthused and energized fan base. Cowher commented on the Mora Jr hiring: "His players have always had confidence in him, they like his strategies, schemes, and coaching abilities, and really respect him. I am looking forward to working with him and seeing a higher level of play from our defense."
    To lead the offense the new GM's raided the staff of their AFC East rivals, tabbing former Miami QB coach, David Lee, to run the offense. He joins the team following two years in Miami and a one-year stay at the University of Arkansas. In 2007, Lee presided over a Razorbacks passing offense that ranked 12th and set school records. The running game ranked fourth nationally, as it averaged 286.5 yards an outing and 6.0-yards per attempt. In 2008, Lee was charged with preparing Chad Pennington for the starting role despite the fact that Pennington was not signed until the day of the Dolphins’ first preseason game. Pennington went on to earn NFL Comeback Player of the Year accolades as he started all 16 regular season games and led the NFL with a completion mark of 67.4 percent. His passer rating of 97.4 ranked second in the NFL and was the second-best figure both in Dolphins history and of his career. His 3,653 yards passing represented the top figure of his NFL career. In addition to his work with Pennington, Lee was largely responsible for employing the Dolphins’ ‘Wildcat’ offense. Lee's creativity will certainly help lead to more points and excitement this season in Buffalo.
    Silverphin and dukane5 will now turn their attention to the 53 man roster where they promise more changes and significant upgrades. They plan to take advantage of Lee's prowess in mentoring new QB's.
