Buffalo Bills Cliche Countdown: Why They Play The Games

This is the final installment of our Cliche Countdown, and a fitting conclusion to the series is to look ahead to the 2010 season.

In 2008, the New Orleans Saints were dead last in the NFC South before winning the Super Bowl in 2009. "That's why they don't play the games on paper."

The last time the Buffalo Bills fired a coach mid-season, they were 4-12. Two years later, they won 12 games under new head man Marv Levy. "That's why they play the games."

It's the time of year when Bills fans start to get optimistic about the upcoming season. Training camp is a little over a week away. Everyone's record is 0-0. Anything could conceivably happen.

Sure, the team is in a decade-long playoff drought, has an unsettled quarterback position (not to mention left tackle, OLB, and a bunch of other spots), and a head coach that inspired yawns from the collective fan base when he was introduced. All of that is great fodder for blogs and sports organizations, but ultimately, these guys are going to strap it up and make the big decisions and plays on the field.

This is your chance, Bills fans, to express your opinion on the upcoming season on the eve of training camp. They can be positive, negative, skeptical, or anything else. See you on Sundays.

After all, "the world is betting against them," but we all know "anything can happen."
