The Bills (8-6) won 21-13 over Green Bay last Sunday, their third victory...

Coming to terms with Doug Marrone

So my boss, who happens to be a Jets fan, came up to me at work today and was like “YOU GUYS ARE STILL IN THE HUNT!!!” His tone was so optimistic and excited that you would have thought he was a die-hard Bills fan. I hate to say it, but I kind of shrugged my arms and gave a half-hearted, “Yeah, it is cool. But they don’t have a QB and their coach is kind of a knucklehead...

. @mmigliore: Is this it for Doug Marrone?

  You know, I want to like Doug Marrone. I really do. The guy seems genuine and even at times a bit engaging. He seems to have a sense of humor. His conversations on Fridays with the WGR guys last season were always interesting. More than anything, though, I want the guy to win here in Buffalo. I just don’t think he’s capable of doing it in his current situation. With three...

Are the Buffalo Bills a playoff team?

My recap: Bills beat the Jets, 38-3

Heading into this game and for about the last 72 hours or so, I really didn’t think much about playoff aspirations or just playing out the string for the season. Instead, I thought a lot about what Buffalo had gone through last week with the snow. Now, I actually didn’t know anyone personally affected by it as my family/friends who still live in Buffalo were spared by the storm...
