Bills Tweets
Twitter / Rochester D&C's Kevin Oklobzija

So I guess Browns have scouted Bills well. On 3rd and long, Edwards throws checkdown pass and a line of 5 Browns are waiting. Nice call.

Twitter / Rochester D&C's Kevin Oklobzija
T.O. open but Edwards doesn't see/doesn't have time to find him. This explains the no huddle: T.O. can't yell at QB in huddle.

Twitter / Rochester D&C's Sal Maiorana
Bills LBs now are Keith Ellison, Marcus Buggs and Ashlee Palmer. There are Div. I teams that have better units.

Twitter / Move the Sticks' Daniel Jeremiah
Trent Edwards is the only QB I have ever seen consistently throw short of the 1st down on 3rd and 2

Twitter / WGR's Nicholas Mendola
When these teams play next yr, who will throw for more yrds: Colt McCoy or Sam Bradford?

Twitter / Thurman Thomas
I am speechless

Twitter /'s Ross Tucker
Asking Dick Jauron about his job status right now is a little pointless, isn't it? It's like rubbing salt in the wounds. He knows the deal.

Twitter / WHAM 13's Mike Catalana
The Rams are the worst team in the NFL. The Bucs are second. I place the Bills 3rd from the bottom. Very sad

Twitter / Michael Lombardi
16 of the 25 poss. in the Browns/Bills ended in punts--ouch bad ball.

Ed. note: For those looking, Darryl Talley's Direct TV signal was out for the entire game so he didn't have a lot to say.
