Marker Chargers coach, Bills linked in misery [4:58 AM]
Pittsburgh Tribune Review reports: 'It happened in 1965, Schottenheimer's rookie year as a back-up linebacker, when the Bills defeated the San Diego Chargers, 23-0, in the AFL Championship. Good thing there wasn't a Super Bowl then, because goodness knows what would have happened to the Bills against Vince Lombardi's Green Bay Packers. Butch Byrd might have lost his helmet under the bench or something. Anyway, 40 years later, the city of Buffalo and the 61-year-old Schottenheimer are both still looking for their next championship. Both have lost so many times, in such agonizing fashion, that you almost wish they'd stop trying.'
