No answers today, only questions:

Would the Bills be any worse off if they had taken my advice and cut Stevie Johnson after the “Happy New Year” debacle two years ago?

Isn't it a troubling sign that the Bills coaches are ready to dumb down the game plan for EJ Manuel at this point in his rookie season?

How embarrassing is it that, in a week when the NFL set a record for most combined touchdowns, the Bills didn't manage to score one?

Among fans who travel to one away game a season, I wonder who has sat through the most consecutive Bills road losses?

Would Russ Brandon have made such a fuss about the Toronto series if he wasn't determined to get out of it very soon?

The kid has been terrific, but isn't it a little early to assume that Kiko Alonso will be better than London Fletcher or Paul Posluszny?

When the Lions-Eagles game was 8-0 in the snow at halftime, were you reminded of the Bills' 8-0 loss at Cleveland in the blizzard in '07?

Can you believe that the Bills don't have a single player among the top 50 in the NFL in receiving yards? I can.

Is Rob Gronkowski cursed?

Could you believe that roughing-the-passer penalty on Jairus Byrd? Back in the day, we called that a textbook tackle.

Speaking of Byrd, why in the world would he sign up to come back for more of this?

Do you think Manuel would be the starting quarterback if he were still at Florida State?

What are the chances of Dustin Hopkins winning the Bills' kicking job next summer, after the season Dan Carpenter has had?

Do you imagine Rian Lindell thought of Chan Gailey after booting that 53-yard field goal with yards to spare against the Bills?

Not to criticize, but have you noticed that Mario Williams almost never winds up on the ground?

Considering how the Saints have rebounded with Sean Payton and Rob Ryan, do you have any doubt how important coaching is in the NFL?

And speaking of coaching, has anyone done a better job this season than New England's Bill Belichick?

Wouldn't it be refreshing after one of these horrible losses if one of the Bills actually blew his stack, showed some genuine anger?

All right, should they draft a quarterback high?

Is Fred Jackson a lock for the Wall of Fame?

Will it make it better if they sweep the Dolphins?

Based on the coaches' poll, do you wonder if Auburn might have gotten in the BCS title game even if Ohio State hadn't lost?

Don't you think the New York, I mean UB, Bulls will look good on that blue football field at Boise State?

I know the Sabres are playing better, but don't you think other teams are playing down to their level most nights?

Do you think the Bills regret cutting Da'Rick Rogers, who had 107 yards receiving and two TDs for the Colts on Sunday?

When Ben Roethlisberger threw that dubious lateral on the final play, did you have have flashbacks to the Music City Miracle?

If this were 2005, would Takeo Spikes and Eric Moulds be lobbying behind the scenes for the Bills to play the backup quarterback?

Is it a surprise to know that Danny Crossman's special teams in Detroit and Carolina ranked in the bottom eight five times in eight years?

What made the Bills' new regime believe they could get by without finding an adequate replacement at left guard for Andy Levitre?

Don't you get the feeling that some of these Bills rookies have hit the wall?

Did you know that Stevie Johnson's last 120-yard receiving day was in November of 2010? Cleveland's Josh Gordon has seven this year alone.

Does playing a home game in Toronto series seem even more outrageous when the negative vibe carries over into the next week's game?

Don't you think it's time to update my list of the worst Bills' road losses of the millennium?
