Mike Bundt: What’s up everybody! Let’s get into business right away.
The Bills lost in disappointing fashion Sunday, falling to the Rams 15-12. Watching the game, it was clear to me that Buffalo was the more talented team but ended up blowing it in the end. How disappointed should Bills fans be with the team’s loss on Sunday?
Brandon Hess: Bills fans should be extremely disappointed with this year’s squad. In previous seasons Buffalo just simply hasn’t been as talented than many of their opponents. This season however they’ve simply lost games to teams they are better than because of poor execution late in games, turnovers, and bad coaching. Home losses to St. Louis and Tennessee are inexcusable.
Ryan Talbot: Very disappointed. The team came into the season talking about the playoffs and now they’re looking at another 6-10 type of season. It’s unacceptable based upon the amount of ...

For Fred Jackson the 2012 season ends much the way the 2011 one did. On Tuesday the Bills placed the running back on injured reserve. This ends the season of Jackson. On Dec. 9, Jackson suffered a lower leg injury in a loss to St. Louis. Jackson will turn 32 before the start of next season and has seen drastic drops in his yards per carry and yards per reception.

Buffalo Bills general manager Buddy Nix told WGR’s The Howard Simon Show that there’s a chance they’ll move up in next year’s draft to take a quarterback if the right one is there.
“Let me say this: I think there’s a time that in the era that you’re in and the development of your team, there’s a time when you can move up a round to take a quarterback,” Nix said...
The Seattle Seahawks are in position for a wild card spot in the NFC. They are really overachieving this season considering they are starting a rookie 3rd round pick in QB Russell Wilson. The receiving corps came in with question marks. They had Terrell Owens and Braylon Edwards in their training camp; that should let you know how they felt about their wide receiver situation. It...
With Fred Jackson on season-ending injured reserve with a knee sprain, C.J. Spiller inherits the team's undisputed role as No. 1 running back for the final three games of the year. Critics of coach Chan Gailey's rotation system that has seen Spiller, easily Buffalo's most dangerous offensive weapon, average just 11 carries per game welcome the development. That'...
Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has a sprained foot but is probable and expected to play Sunday against Atlanta.
Coach Pete Carroll said Lynch got work in practice Friday for the first time this week and looked fine. Asked what it would take for Lynch not to play, Carroll cracked, ''Miss the flight? Doesn't show up in Atlanta?''
Lynch rushed for...

Do you remember the game the Seattle Seahawks played against the Cardinals on Sunday? You know the 58-Nil beat-down handed out by the defense and Marshawn Lynch? Yeah, you might as well forget about it. I say this for two reasons. The first is that in a game like that, where everything goes your way, it doesn’t tell you much about who your team is. The defense absolutely dominated...
After the Seattle Seahawks sent a message to their opponent last week, Marshawn Lynch may want to do the same to his former team.
Lynch and the Seahawks try for their fifth victory in six games Sunday as they head to Toronto to face the Buffalo Bills, who appear bound to miss the playoffs for the 13th consecutive season.
Although the Bills' ground game has been strong thanks...
Beat down in Sea-Town
Holy cow! That was one hell of a game last Sunday.
The Seahawks took the first takeaway of the game and just ran with it, never looking back en-route to 7 more takeaways on the day, and a record 58 points scored.
There have been multiple joke pictures and tweets floating around cyberspace ever since the end of the ballgame, so I thought I would include a couple...
This week, Buffalo Bills players have been much more diplomatic than last year when discussing their thoughts on the team's annual "home" game in Toronto.Well, at least Bills players not named Stevie Johnson. "We know that it isn’t a home game, we know our fans want it to be played at the Ralph," Johnson said, according to the team's media site. "...

Buffalo has two divisional games against comparable teams, one in Miami, who they already beat, and one at home for the Jets, who they already lost to. I say they split those 2 and the Seattle game is the wild card one. The Seahawks have fallen flat in several games against...

Love ‘em & hate ‘em Week 14
This past Sunday the Seattle Seahawks set single-game franchise records with points scored and margin of defeat in a 58-0 stomping of the Arizona Cardinals.
The victory was the first divisional win of the season, and it occurred in superb fashion.
This was an excellent example of firing on all cylinders – as the offense, defense and special...
