Brian Moorman was what the rest of Bills were not – consistent. Kicking in high winds, white outs and generally shit conditions, Moorman managed to be an all-pro selection twice. The fact that there was a thing called the Moorman army managed to be both adorable and horribly sad at the same time.

No, this wasn’t a dream.
After last week’s implosion in New York your normally cynical Bills fan was in a special state of self loathing. Looking back the whole ‘we can’t have nice things’ line near the end of my column last Sunday was a little much, but I truly believe that’s how it works when it comes to cheering for the team that plays at Orchard Park.
For fans like myself – not from Buffalo, no family there etc. – complaining about the Bills isn’t well received. You have a choice they say.
