Buffalo Bills are worst team in the NFL | Democrat and Chronicle

Inside The Bills | It’s about consistency "
"We played well at times and at times we didn’t," said Fred Jackson. "I think we just need to be consistent. Everybody needs to be consistent and do their jobs, myself included. When it is time to make a play we need to step up and make a play."

"He couldn’t finish the game," said Gailey. "He couldn’t go back in. I don’t think it’s bad, but it was bad enough to keep him out the rest of the game. We’ll just have to see how he progresses during the week."

Matthews a reminder of decade of poor drafting - Jerry Sullivan - The Buffalo News
Sullivan plays the game I hate so much and openly wishes the Bills had selected Clay Matthews instead of Aaron Maybin. "Miss on enough high draft picks and eventually you sink to the bottom. If you believe the Bills needed to bottom out, take heart. This team appears to be doing that."

Offensive struggles add to Evans' frustration - Bills & NFL - The Buffalo News
"Lee Evans spent most of Sunday afternoon running routes for nothing. Despite being the Buffalo Bills' best wide receiver, Evans didn't have a catch against the Green Bay Packers. How fitting, since the passing game was mostly invisible during a 34-7 beating at Lambeau Field."

Wrap-up: Packers 34, Bills 7 - AFC East Blog - ESPN
Tim Graham breaks down the Bills loss to the Packers.

Bills Offense Sputters Again |
"Two games. Less than 200 total yards in both games. Just when you thought the Bills offense couldn't get any better...and you thought Chan Gailey would turn it around...Buffalo is 0-2 after a 34-7 loss to Green Bay."

It's time the Bills free Lee " Bills " Niagara Gazette
"On Sunday, after another embarrassing offensive performance, Evans simply said he prefers to look forward, and doesn’t worry about the team’s lack of success during his time here. And that’s why it’s time to return Evans’ respect and give him what he deserves — a chance to play for a franchise that cares about winning."

Bills eaten alive in Green Bay - The Globe and Mail
"he offensive genius thing that the Buffalo Bills have tried to sell? Yeah, well, let's hold off on that for a bit. But at least it can be said Gailey's a quick learner because after watching his quarterback prove once again he is no NFL starter in a 34-7 embarrassment dished out by the Green Bay Packers and after which, Gailey came as close as an NFL coach can come to at least rhetorically throwing up his hands."

Green Bay Packers get firsthand look at Buffalo Bills' Marshawn Lynch | Green Bay Press-Gazette
"We wanted to get Marshawn and Fred (Jackson) a lot more involved today," Gailey said. "Didn’t put C.J. (Spiller) in there as much. We’re going to use him on third downs and continue to work him back in there slowly. We just felt that was the best way to try to attack them."

Green Bay Packers dominant in 34-7 rout of Buffalo Bills | Green Bay Press-Gazette
"The Packers’ huge advantages at quarterback, receiver and pass rush made Sunday's game against the Bills as stark a mismatch as the 34-7 final score suggests."

Jermichael Finley makes Bills pay for single coverage - JSOnline
"A week after being swarmed with defenders by the Philadelphia Eagles, the Green Bay Packers tight end actually saw the light of day against the Buffalo Bills, who were not as intent on double- and triple-teaming him Sunday in the Packers' 34-7 victory."

"Trivia answer: The Redskins, Eagles, Dolphins, Raiders and Steelers. Trivia question: Which five teams with a combined record of 6-2 after Sunday’s early games feature starting offensive linemen that used to start for the Bills?" | Buffalo, NY | Bills Not One of NFL's Surprises
"Just 2 weeks into the season though, it looks like the "experts" were totally right about the 2010 Buffalo Bills. Yes, a new head coach and gm and staff, but the same quarterback behind an inferior offensive line, and after their 34-7 loss at Green Bay, the Bills look hopelessly lost."

Trent Edwards Is Not Part of the Solution For the Buffalo Bills | Bleacher Report
"It's time for the Bills to move forward and replace Edwards, as it's impossible that we fans see this and the front office continues to turn aside this problem. There is no doubt that Edwards is a likeable guy... But enough is enough."

It's a good thing the Bills spent a top 10 pick on C.J. Spiller - 8 rushes for 9 yards so far this season. What a smart organization.
