Jets eighth this year to pass go, collect 200 yards rushing - Bills & NFL - The Buffalo News
"For the eighth time this season, the Bills let an opponent rush for more than 200 yards. That ties a franchise record set back in 1978. The 2,714 rushing yards the Bills yielded this season are second only to the 3,228 yards allowed by the 1978 outfit."

HAMILTON: The Jets Just Laughed At The Bills - WGR 550 SportsRadio
"The party started for the Jets early as they laughed at the Bills from start to finish. There was no respect shown Buffalo by the Jets as their players looked like they were at a frat party over a keg of beer. Why wouldn't they laugh? The Bills defense looked as uninterested as it could possibly be."

Ball security again costs Bills against Jets -

"Offensively that was an awful performance," said head coach Chan Gailey. "We couldn’t protect the passer, we couldn’t run it and we never got any kind of consistency at all and when you turn it over that many times your defense has no chance. We put our defense in a bind the whole day. You can’t be sloppy like that and play the way that we did and expect to win football games or expect to even look good in football games."

Inside The Bills | Jets had answer for empty
"Whenever the Bills went with an empty backfield early the Jets had an answer. New York would sent six pass rushers when they saw Buffalo go five wide and more often than not they got to Brian Brohm forcing a pair of turnovers."

Inside The Bills | Jets run too much
"The NY Jets ran 66 offensive plays in Sunday’s win over the Bills. On 50 of those plays they ran the ball. Fifty rushes is the most the Bills have faced in a game since Nov. 15, 1993 when the Steelers rushed 50 times against Buffalo."

Skidding into offseason, Bills run for the bus - Bills & NFL - The Buffalo News
"Any illusions that might have existed about the competitiveness of the Buffalo Bills' football team were wiped away Sunday against the New York Jets. The Bills put a wrap on another dismal season with their second straight 31-point defeat."

Against AFC East's best, Bills don't measure up - Jerry Sullivan - The Buffalo News
"It's pathetic," center Eric Wood said. "It's embarrassing. I mean, you could say anything. It's awful. It's not even an NFL-caliber offense."

"That's the worst possible way we could have ended the season, let's be honest," Poz said. "But that's the difference between a playoff team with a lot of confidence, and us and where we're at right now. That was disappointing on all fronts.

Joe Buscaglia breaks down his thoughts from the game yesterday.

Embarrassed Bills lick their wounds - Sports - The Buffalo News
"We do have a long way to go," Posluszny said. "We saw flashes of us heading in the right direction, but it wasn't constant enough to say we're on the right path. [Sunday's loss] showed that. We had an opportunity to finish out the year strong and get a win and be positive going into the offseason and we blew that opportunity.

NFL Draft
Bills To Draft 3rd; What To Expect? - WGR 550 SportsRadio

Joe Buscaglia breaks down how the Bills got the third pick and then gives a commercial for his draft coverage. We'll allow it. :-) | Buffalo, NY | Bills Need to Help the D in Draft
"Can the Bills do something about their o-line with the #3 pick? Based on everything I've seen and heard, there simply are no dominant offensive tackles rated anywhere near that high, and besides, it's pretty obvious the Bills need some - make that one - impact player on defense."

Pitoniak-At Least Bills Will Draft High -
"The good news – and, believe me, there wasn’t much of it to glean from this 31-point loss to the Jets Sunday – is that the Bills didn’t screw up their draft position. By finishing 4-12, their worst record in nine seasons, they’ll have the No. 3 overall pick in the upcoming NFL draft."

Offseason Talk
Inside The Bills | Poz would like to stay a Bill

"That’s a good question," Posluszny said. "I don’t know. I would like to stay in Buffalo and see this thing through, but that’s up to Buddy Nix and Coach Gailey and I’ll see if they want me to be a part of this thing or not."

Inside The Bills | Whitner emotional
"It was really emotional even before we got to the stadium," said Whitner. "I love these guys in this locker room, and I love this staff. This is the only place I’ve ever been. I’ve spent more time with these guys than I have with my actual family, so it makes it tough. It all comes down to the emotional side of the game. We don’t know where were going, but like I said, I would like to be back here. Now it is the off season, so we will see what happens."

4 y'all who keep askin me about Merriman. The Bills need personnel who can play in a 3-4. He can play in a 3-4.

Twitter / @Darryl Talley:
Did the Bills pay 2 much 4 Merriman? Probably. But I pay 2 much 4 my steak at Mortons. But I don't have 2 prep, season or cook that steak.

#Bills 6 1st downs were 3rd-lowest in team history. Had 4 vs. Colts in '71, 5 vs. Miami in '79. I have attended all 3 of those games. Jeez!

This will be the first time in franchise history that the #Bills will pick 3rd overall in the draft.
