Re: NFL Week 5 - The Return of Colt McCoy?

Mike Vrabel is either an idiot, or he just wanted to torture his lousy kicker today. 4th and 4 - Bills up 14-7 with like 5 minutes left - he sent out Cairo Santos who was already 0-3 on field goals (including a 32 yard attempt that unblocked went UNDER the crossbar) to try a CAREER LONG 53 yarder.

T he Bills mafia is a reflection of the city. Very touchy, very defensive and on Sunday, very drunk . The Orchard Park exit on the New York State Thruway was backed up at 8:50am. You see things in the parking lots at that stadium at 10 in the morning that you'd probably never see at spring break.
