Rooting for Falcons to beat Brady to drop him to 4-3 in Super Bowls (sucks that he could realistically be 0-6) .. but if AFC wins super bowl I guess I want Pitt with Rapersberger not playing because of illness or he plays horrible like he did in his first.
??? He is closer to being 6-0 than 0-6.

If we get a 1-2 punch like the Falcons do with Freeman and Coleman we will.

How far below ? I can't say for sure, without thoroughly analyzing my archives of historical data (some of which is still in microfiche format btw).

Like someone else said above though, Turner was really just a backup for us, so you can't really place too much value on him...

PS - Marcus Allen/Bo Jackson wasn't all that bad of a tandem either.
Having two future NFL Hall-of-Famers in one college backfield is clearly cheating. Barry Sanders was so frigging good, I would almost take him solo over most backfields, and Thurman Thomas was great. I was sorry the great Bills' teams, with Thomas and Jim Kelly, made it to 4 straight SBs and didn't win at least one of them. Fun team to watch like Air Coryell.

true he could be 6-0 but he could also be 0-6 won 4 super bowls by an average of 3 points per game ... plus with all the cheating deserves to be 0-6

Bills are a cursed franchise, just like the Chargers, imagine being a Browns fan, your team leaving, changing its name and winning a Super Bowl ... how torturous that would of been!

The worst thing about the Bills 4-year run is that they absolutely should have won in their first Super Bowl appearance. The Norwood figgie that would have been a game-winner slid a foot wide of the right post, and everything leading up to that point in the game had gone perfectly for the Giants.

The Bills had fantastic teams from 1990-1993, but after losing at the last second to the beatable Giants, they ran into absolute steamroller teams on their next three trips to the Super Bowl (14-2 Redskins, 13-3 Cowboys and 12-4 Cowboys consecutively).
