  1. 1. All Amendola needs is one injury-free season. How hard could that be?

    2. A three-win season in Cleveland ought to be worth at least an upgrade to quilted toilet paper at the stadium.

    3. Given the rest of the offense, maybe Houston should consider a six-tight-end look. At least on first down.

  2. Only a month late with the Bon Jovi ban.

    I can’t believe someone would mock out the people of Western, NY, because we don’t like and have banned bad music.

    It’s basically just like bad journalism…somebody who is pretty darn good at something, but they don’t take pride in their work and they rush through everything just to get a product out quick.

    Don’t be like Bon Jovi anymore, Mikey…I have faith you’re better than that, sir.

  3. If Bon Jovi was that bad, he would have gone the way of Twisted Sister a long time ago and wouldn’t even be in a position to consider buying the Bills. And besides, what in the world is banning his music from the radio going to do? Bills fans need to be worrying about getting a new stadium instead of this kind of ridiculousness.
