The Buffalo Bills seemed like they had turn the ship in the right direction after this years NFL Draft, earning somewhere between an A or B draft grade pretty much anywhere on the Internet. That’s why it’s kind of surprising that they fired general manager Doug Whaley along with the entire scouting department the day after the draft according to ESPN. Except if you’re around the the Bills organization, it wasn’t a surprise, which makes you wonder why they hadn’t already fired Whaley.
