After three straight 7-9 seasons, Dick Jauron already had the odds stacked against him entering this season. The attitude of Bills owner Ralph C. Wilson Jr. last January was "I'm giving him one more year." Everyone knew Jauron needed to have a strong season to last beyond 2009.
Maybe that's why Jauron spent the past 10 months acting like a desperate coach.
Jauron's desperation came to an end Tuesday when he was fired by Wilson.
Bills DC Perry Fewell was introduced as the interim coach Tuesday evening.
Fewell, 47, has been defensive coordinator the past 3½ seasons. He said he thinks the Bills (3-6) will be ready to play well when they take the field Sunday in Jacksonville.
"I think we'll be focused," Fewell said at a news conference. "I think we'll go out and practice with a purpose. We'll all get on the same page, and our focus is Jacksonville. We're professionals. That's what we do."
