73 wins and 151 losses.....that's a .325 winning percentage.

Averaged 5.2 wins a year since getting back into the league in 1999.

1 playoff appearance, which was a loss.

Their fans have stuck with them and still support them and they deserve better than the **** sandwiches they've been served up the last 14 seasons.
I felt that way about the Bills when I used to live there. Four SBs in a row? Norwood? And they still pile into Orchard Park and root for that team. In bad weather too. I'm thankful for Pat Bowlen.
