Bills' misery should continue in Meadowlands

I think the Bills get buried like Jimmy Hoffa today at Giants Stadium. Call it J-E-T-S, JETS! JETS! JETS! 34, Buffalo 13.

I would have started Ryan Fitzpatrick today in place of Trent Edwards. I'm not saying Fitzpatrick is the answer by any means, but he certainly can't perform any worse than Edwards has in recent weeks. Besides, what does Dick Jauron have to lose any way, except his job, which already is a foregone conclusion? Those who argue that a benching would be the last straw for Edwards probably agreed with the way the Yankees babied Joba Chamberlain this season. I'm sorry, but the time for coddling Edwards should be over. If he wants to be an NFL quarterback he needs to rise to the occasion. Yes, his offensive line is as green as the fairways at Augusta, but at some point the great players rise above the obstacles and elevate the play of those around them.

***

If I hear Edwards tell us one more time that the Bills had a good week of practice, I'm going to scream. To heck with practice. Have a good game for a change.

***

As if Bills fans needed any more to add to their misery, the report out of Philadelphia is that left tackle Jason Peters has yet to allow a sack.

***

Further proof that the Bills are a poorly coached football team: Buffalo leads the NFL in penalties per game.

That was one, terrific baseball playoff game at Yankee Stadium last night and early this morning. It's just too bad that it had to end on a throwing error. I'd much rather see a classic contest won by someone's heroics than lost by someone's mistake.

***

I'm so happy to see former Rochester Red Wing Jerry Hairston Jr.'s perseverance rewarded. He drilled a single in his first post-season at-bat in the bottom of the 13th and wound up scoring the winning run on the error by Angels second baseman Macier Izturis.

***

A loss by the Bills today would extend their AFC East losing streak to 9 and make Jauron 3-13 in his last 16 games.
