Wind is wacky, but Bills kickers thrive [10:47 AM] D and C reports:
"NFL quarterbacks, kickers and punters have always shuddered at the thought of playing in Buffalo's Ralph Wilson Stadium late in the season. It isn't the snow. It isn't the cold. It's the wind. Picking up steam over Lake Erie, it moves inland toward Orchard Park, howling over the giant Jumbotron scoreboard, heading toward the tunnel entrance like a locomotive. At least it used to be predictable. Since the construction last summer of two 450-seat luxury club boxes atop the ones that already existed, the wind no longer blows through the stadium. Instead, it swirls in maddening, unpredictable directions, the result of an enclosed bowl effect."

Phillips would mean trouble for Bills [12:49 PM] D and C reports:
"However, by repeating the "no comment" mantra when asked if the Bills would be interested in signing Phillips, general manager John Butler and coach Wade Phillips are actually making a very salient comment, not to mention a disturbing one."
Bills' interest in Lawrence Phillips not right message [12:47 PM] Buffalo News reports:

Linton's knee injury not as bad as first feared [12:46 PM] Buffalo News reports:
"The Buffalo Bills' running back situation looks a lot better today than it did after Sunday's win over the Miami Dolphins.
