Gameday Prep: Bills at Patriots

I’m tired of losing to New England.

Consider this your gameday prep.

Announcers: Kevin Harlan, Solomon Wilcots

I don’t mind Kevin Harlan at all. I think he has a pretty good grasp on the sport and knows when to get excited about things. With that out of the way, I don’t like Wilcots at all.

I promise I don’t have all color commentators, just the ones the Bills have had thus far.

Other Games We Get to Watch
Indianapolis at Denver – (4 pm CBS)

Philadelphia at Jacksonville – (4 pm FOX)

Looks like another week of staying squarely on CBS for the afternoon. Unless Mike Vick is doing something worth watching, there’s no way I’m watching the Jags play this season.

Depth Charts: Buffalo, New England

Stats: You can get stats pretty much anywhere these days, but I go with Yahoo because my fantasy football teams are tied in there.

Things to Watch In Case of Blowout:

NASCAR Sprint Cup AAA 400 at Dover (ESPN) – Hey, NASCAR can be fun if you give it a chance. Especially if you’re down 17 points at the half.

The Andy Griffith Show (TV Land) – By my count there are 26 straight episodes on starting at 8 am this morning and going up until 9 pm. In other words, if the game doesn’t make you want to kill yourself, TV Land can finish the job.

The Perfect Storm (A&E) – So you will finally know what the hell is going on in the news.

American Pie Presents: The Book of Love (Comedy Central)
Just listen to the program guide:

This rip-roaring comedy follows a trio of teen virgins who discover a legendary book in the school library. Known as “the Bible,” the book contains

Uh oh! Looks like these guys will be scoring more than the Bills offense today! Ka-boom!

Your Weekly Bill Simmons Quote About the Bills (Sort of)

Granted, I probably would have loved it had the Patriots not been stuck in the AFC East. The Dolphins kicked our butts through the ’70s (the Griese/Shula Era) and ’80s (when Dan Marino showed up), which was especially galling because Miami is located in Florida … which, of course, is nowhere near Massachusetts. Buffalo eventually assumed control of the division, ripping off 124 wins from 1988 to 1999 — let’s take a break while the tortured Bills fans solemnly pour a 40 on the ground — and just as they were fading, Peyton Manning’s Colts jelled into a contender. My Pats finally caught a break before the 2002 season, when the league expanded and realigned to eight divisions (sending Indy to the AFC South). The playing field finally seemed fair: 32 teams, four teams per division. What could go wrong?

Ugh, let’s just move on here.
