After dropping the game-winning touchdown pass today in a 19-16 overtime loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, Buffalo Bills receiver Stevie Johnson Tweeted after the game:
I PRAISE YOU 24/7!!!!!! AND THIS HOW YOU DO ME!!!!! YOU EXPECT ME TO LEARN FROM THIS??? HOW???!!! ILL NEVER FORGET THIS!! EVER!!! THX THO…
Like any deeply religious person - who had five drops in a single game - Johnson chose to reserve his wrath for Twitter.

NFL reporter Albert Breer of the BOSTON GLOBE has this from Pro Bowl practice in Miami today:
Asomugha has his priorities straight, at least when one considers why Terrell Owens didn’t make the Pro Bowl this year.
ESPN NFL analyst Darren Woodson, who won three Super Bowls with the Dallas Cowboys beginning in 1993, guested this morning on ESPN Radio’s Mike and Mike in the Morning.
Woodson was asked by Mike Greenberg about the experience advantage the Buffalo Bills had over the Dallas Cowboys in the 1993 Super Bowl.
“As much as everyone talked about how much experience the Bills had back then, they partied harder than any other team. That’s all we heard about the entire week in L.A., the (Cowboys) first Super Bowl.

Buffalo Bills running back Marshawn Lynch took $20 from a Southtowns woman at a Hamburg restaurant last month, according to information received by The Buffalo News.
The woman’s husband, Buffalo Police Sgt. William Crawford, filed a complaint with Hamburg police a day after the incident, but they delayed giving a statement to detectives until Wednesday, in part because she wanted to wait until the Bills’ football season ended and Lynch was out of town.
The alleged incident happened at a TGI Fridays:
He takes the $20 out of her hand, and my wife says “What are you doing?’ and Lynch says “Don’t worry.’ When my wife’s girlfriend came back to the table, she told her about it. The girlfriend approached Lynch and said, “Give my friend her money back,’ and Lynch threatened her saying “Do you know who I am? There’s going to be consequences.’
Unbelievable? If you cover athletes for a living, not so much. More unreal though is how the woman got her money back.
After suffering through yet another mediocre season, Bills fans woke up to a WIVB-TV report this morning that their team was reportedly interested in hiring Charlie Weis as head coach.
(Ron Prince unavailable?)
Sources tell News 4 Sports that Charlie Weis has been contacted by the Buffalo Bills, to see if he’s interested in becoming head coach.
Sources tell us the Bills made a back-channel approach to Weis in recent weeks to see if he’s interested in the job. And the sources say Weis is interested. So far, it’s not believed that the two sides have had a formal discussion about the Bills coaching job.
Of course he’s interested. What other team would hire him as a head coach?
Allen Wilson of the BUFFALO NEWS reports starting Buffalo Bills offensive right guard Eric Wood “sustained a compound fracture of the tibia and fibula in the fourth quarter of an 18-15 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.”

Wood was taken to a Jacksonville hospital, where he had immediate season-ending surgery. It is not known when he will be able to travel back to Buffalo.
The injury to the Bills’ most consistent offensive lineman this season was too graphic for CBS to replay on the telecast. You can view video of the injury as it happened after the jump. If you have a weak stomach, I would highly advise you not click-through.
• Titans owner Bud Adams gives the Bills a double-finger salute - and gets fined $250,000 for it.
• After Stanford’s stunning slaughter of ‘SC, Pete Carroll & Jim Harbaugh both want to know what the deal is. (And Pete won’t forget it.)
• But the real deal is Toby Gerhart. Just ask his swim team girlfriend, who says that the Cardinal RB is “one big muscle.”
• Speaking of girlfriends, Erin Dewes has been incorrectly labeled as Tim Tebow’s squeeze. But that’s not stopping her from covering her nude self in number 15’s body paint.
• Zack Greinke is a real winner this week. Not only did the Royals pitcher grab the Cy Young award, he’s also tying the knot with former Miss Daytona Beach Emily Kuchar.

Jay Glazer of Fox Sports reports Buffalo Bills head coach Dick Jauron has been fired.
No interim coach has been named. Jason La Canfora of the NFL Network also reports Jauron has been discharged.
Bud Adams approves.
The ASSOCIATED PRESS reports this afternoon that Bud Adams was fined an astounding $250,000 for his double bird flip at the Buffalo Bills yesterday. (No word on the Dewars being padlocked next Sunday.)

Goodell actually attended the same game with Adams, which had people wondering if the commissioner saw the owner’s gestures.
Though he was in Adams’ suite for a portion of the game, you won’t be surprised to find out that he didn’t. Read more…
