WEEK 2 BILLS FANTASY CHALLENGE WINNER: The Bills season ticket holder winner for Week 2 of the Bills Fantasy Football Challenge was James G. (Section 112) whose team (hecouldgoalltheway) had the highest point total with 159.

Needless to say I was pretty far behind with just 119 points. James wins a $50 gift card to the Bills Store for his Week 2 efforts. 

It's not too late to see if you can beat me or any of your other fellow season ticket holders for that matter. Sign up is easy and you get to put a fresh lineup in every week of your choosing based on a point value system. Just enter your email and your season ticket holder account number which should be on the bottom of any one of your season tickets and you should be good to go.

McKelvin move inevitable

MCKELVIN DECISION NOT HARD TO UNDERSTAND: Hearing Dick Jauron state that he and his staff feels they need to get their top pick on the field on returns a bit more isn't surprising. McGee is a great return man, but taking some of the load off of him in light of the defensive snaps he plays only makes sense especially when you might have a guy that is every bit as good as he is.

If you're not going to lose much if at all on kick return, then keeping McGee even a little bit more fresh in the fourth quarter on defense seems worth it to me.

Bills injury update

BILLS INJURY UPDATE: Terrence McGee did not practice Wednesday due to a stiff back. Hearing coach Jauron describe it McGee injury doesn't sound as if it will keep him out of Sunday's game.

"It's a soft tissue injury," said Jauron. "It was still stiff today so we kept him off it. We're very optimistic about that for Sunday."

Roscoe Parrish was limited in practice Wednesday with a sore knee.

Kiffin followed by paparazzi

KIFFIN FOLLOWED BY PAPARAZZI: Raiders head coach Lane Kiffin just spoke to the WNY media on the conference call and naturally was asked about his job security. He relayed something that happened to him yesterday.

"How'd you like to go for a jog and have all the paparazzi following you asking if you're still going to be the coach," said Kiffin. "I felt like Brad Pitt yesterday."

Kiffin knows he has no control over whether he continues to coach the Raiders or not, so he said he's not going to worry about it. He just feels bad for the men who play for him.

"It is what it is and we'll make the best of it," said Kiffin. "I just feel bad that the players have to deal with this each day."

EMBARRASSED JAGS FAN: Well kudos to the Bills fan roadies who were at the Jacksonville game last week. You effectively embarrassed a Jaguars fan who laments the fact that you guys were louder than the Jags fans in the fourth quarter despite being grossly outnumbered. His comment appears at the top of the AskVic column(Jaguars lead journalist Vic Ketchman). Enjoy!
