By Ch2 Sports Director Ed Kilgore That old cliche that football doesn't build character, but reveals it, certainly applies to the Buffalo Bills after their disheartening opening loss to the Denver Broncos.

Gutsy call? You might think it, but there are times for guts and times for controlled and predictable plays... All day long the long ball did not work... better to run and keep the clock running.

I like Jauron, but I don't like the call he made. That along with all the bad things that happened caused the Bills to lose the game. Game clock management should have superseded trying to go for the long ball.

A couple of points with regards to the back-up players. At 5'-8" , Leonhard is just too small.
Lots of tackles---but wwwway down field. The entire Bills` defense is small and not very deep.
Lack of sure tackling may be a more of a result of being undersized than anything else, but clearly tackling is an issue. Such concerns will continue to expose this defense in 4th quarters of games. While its always tough to lose front line players, many of these guys never were considered proven commodities. But once again, this season, the local media have raised false hopes within the Bills` community in spite of the aforementioned realities.

It has been 20 years since I regularly watched or listened to local news. Ed Kilgour you are as wrong now as you were twenty years ago. You gamble when the odds are in your favor and the reward justifies it. Two running plays (in bounds) and the game is over. What the game showed is this: with little to no talent due to cap to crap spending this team has to go to extreme measures in ordinary situations. It is a waiting game until they plant Ralph and Vegas welcomes its new franchise.

GREAT call? That great call probably cost them the win. Remember that "GREAT" call if the Bills fall one game short of a playoff spot. Of course if it vaults them into a better draft choice maybe it was a great call. Personally I'd take the win. Wnners may gamble but Jauron isn't a winner, it's bonehead playcalls like that which lead to having a losing record as a Head Coach which is now 43-59.

I wish the best for Kevin Everett,but this football team is a disgrace to the national football league. Too many rookies, not enough veterans.
Mr. Wilson didn't spend money the right way.

In looking towards the rest of the season, I see the Bills going 0 and 16. The past two games, the Bronco's game a complete shoot in the foot with no game plan, no win and toda's game with Pitt, a complete breakdown from start to finnish. I don't know what the answer is, quaterback change, coaching change something has to be done and done quickly. Everyone thinks this team is a 'sleeper' team, I say not sleeper but sleeping. Now two un-sportsman like conduct calls on the team. What is with that? This team is falling appart or is still appart from last year. Every year will are faced with the same old same all the time. Put Marv Levy back on the sideline. It would be the 13th coach in a long line of coaching changes made in buffalo. No other team has ever had that many changes in a 10 year period.

I am very upset with the offensive play calling by the Bills. On third and 2, I would go to the run. I'm pretty confident in Lynch's running ability. If they want to succeed with J.P. ebery play shouldn.t be a pass

The Bills need to go to the run more than the pass. On third and short i would think they would run or, atleast make it look like a run not go out with an empty back feild. We froget that lynch is a stong back that can run out and inside.

"Must move forward".Brilliant statement Kilgore.
Very profound.On a par with Francona's this morning on the Mike and Mike show."The team that plays the best will win".Did you two go to Dippy U Together?
