Not Gonna Make It

The Buffalo Bills have about as much chance of making the playoffs as I do of being successful or people liking me. The Bills were mathematically eliminated yesterday after an 8-0 road loss in blizzard conditions against the Cleveland Browns.

The Bills got off to the slow start this season, which featured much heartbreak, both in life and in competition. In the snow, Trent Edwards had his worst game, but hopefully in time, he'll be able to adjust to those conditions typical of winter in Buffalo. Marshawn Lynch managed to move the line of scrimmage a bit, but not as much as Browns' back Jamal Lewis.

I can't say it enough, I'm proud to be a long time member of the Bills fan diaspora. This has been a particularly likable team. They may not have had the most talent, really in any game they played this season, but they always had the most heart. At 7-7, the Bills are a lot better than most thought they would be.

The Miami Dolphins got their first win of the season unfortunately. Any week that the Bills loss and the Nazi Dolphins win is a bad one. That hasn't happened for a while.
