FROM THE VALLEY: It's unreal what a little tweak will do

(Continued)

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Now here’s the deal: what got me is how effective the Bills would be in that league. In the Canadian game, you can have guys in motion all over the place — because off-sides doesn’t seem to matter — and even an inefficient quarterback with the arm strength of Mahatma Gandhi isn’t an impediment to success. I swear (not really) that the QBs in this game couldn’t pass dinner rolls to Aunt Maude at a family reunion.

The tweak: As far as I’m concerned, the threat of Buffalo moving to Toronto isn’t a bad move at all – as long as they can get into the CFL. The only change would be that we’d have to switch the “eh (ay)” around when we speak. Instead of the NY-style “Eh, how about them Bills?” it would be the Canadian “How about them Bills, eh?” A minor tweak for a contender. Fair trade.

Winning a championship? Unreal!

And that’s the way it looks from the Valley.
