Buffalo Bills: Doug Whaley deserves some criticism

Let me preface this by saying one thing: I like Doug Whaley.  I like a lot of moves he’s made to make this franchise better.  I like the fact that guys like Sammy Watkins and LeSean McCoy are Buffalo Bills thanks to him.  I like his aggressive style, his willingness to use his assets as he tries to make the Bills a better football team.
