Great job, Buffalo Rumblings community! I apologize for the lack of fresh reading material this morning; I had my last final exam of the semester this morning, and then spent the mid-portion of the day packing up and getting out of college for a month. I've got an article coming later on this evening - but first, I'm leaving to celebrate my dear mother's (Mama G in these parts) birthday. Here's some reading material for y'all in the meantime - and thanks for holding down the fort with the discussions today.
You know you're emerging from a snake-bit weekend when, after your playoff hopes are dashed, your plane gets stuck on the way home. Are you kidding me? Buffalo couldn't catch a break during Sunday's loss to Cleveland, and then they can't catch a break in the airport afterwards? Unbelievable.
Get all the bad luck out, boys - we want a win this weekend against the Giants.
The Buffalo News has some good quotes from Sunday's loss:
DE Chris Kelsay: "It's most disappointing," said defensive end Chris Kelsay. "We just didn't play well enough to get a win today."
Dick Jauron on the final screen pass: "If you think they're going to pressure, then it's a good call," said Bills coach Dick Jauron. "The screen had been a good call all day."
Bills GM Marv Levy is happy that the Bills struck a quick accord with WR Roscoe Parrish:
I can't help but agree with Levy's final sentiment. Parrish is one of the most unique players in the NFL, and if the Bills can find a couple of bigger targets at WR and TE in the off-season (man, would I love to see the team draft Martin Rucker), Parrish will become even more effective. I'm glad he's re-signed; he's a great special teams presence and should only continue to grow as a receiver. (Figuratively; I think Roscoe, literally, is done growing.)
