Two of the lesser appreciated signal-caller’s in the NFL  would love to be the showcase game on a Thursday night where they can take a step towards a potential playoff push. With the Steelers having an ailing quarterback, and the Colts still having the Texans left on the slate there really is no such thing as a lock to appear in the playoffs. Plus, Buffalo’s slate down the road is fairly easy when looking at all of the losing records that they have not yet played. Before the Dolphins put together by far their worst performance of the season against the Titans, Miami had previously lost three games by single digits. Tannehill’s three picks...

Michael Irvin gives C.J. Spiller a double kiss

Yes, yes he did. As the postgame interview with C.J. Spiller was wrapping up, Irvin was congratulating him and saying his goodbyes. Then for some reason, the hung and handshake weren’t enough.

Spiller Has Rare 5/5 Vision: He Rarely Sees The Ball When His Team Is On The 5 Yard Line

Tonight was supposed to be a coming out party of sorts for C.J. Spiller.  Many in the fantasy community were expecting 30 carries for 500 yards, 20 touchdowns, a signed autograph from Justin Bieber (why, fantasy community, why?) and for him to save burning orphans from space aliens…give or take.  Truthfully, I used to be a part of the Spiller fanclub and rooted for him harder...

Week 11:Know your enemy- Miami Dolphins

Forget the teases, it is Know your enemy with PhinsPhocus. 1) If you were the Bills' defensive or offensive coordinator, how would you attack the Dolphins? CJ Spiller, CJ Spiller then some more CJ Spiller. He is a special player and needs to get the ball (Editor's note: Tell that to Chan). Dolphins also tend to struggle against Tight ends so I would try and get Scott...

This week’s Water Cooler features QCS writers Mike Bundt, John Snyder, Mike Straw, Ryan Talbot and Brandon Hess. Mike Bundt: What’s up everybody!

True or False: Buffalo Bills/Miami Dolphins Edition

Being realistic, the Buffalo Bills are done for the year. At 3-6 it’d take quite a turnaround to even compete for a Wildcard spot.

In parentheses are last week’s records. Brandon Hess: 24-11 (5-0...

Bills Fans Fighting Bills Fans Last Night At Ralph Wilson

What did we learn about Buffalo Bills fans when it comes to playing on national TV at 8:30 on a Thursday night? They’re going to get stupid drunk, wear Zubaz, light cars on fire, die in a creek and fight each other. And you wonder why, besides sucking for 15 years, the team can’t get a game on primetime TV. The less drinking time for these idiots, the better off they’ll be...

Dolphins-Bills Preview

Gameday Deciding Factors: Dolphins at Bills

Field Goals: Playoff picture and Miami week

If you read Grantland, you would have come across an interesting piece on the Bills that was equal parts inspiring, depressing and gut wrenching.
