The Bills are doing their best to start anew next season.
They are changing their uniform, and the Buffalo News reports they are planning to change (http://www.buffalonews.com/sports/bills-nfl/article345966.ece) their playing surface as well.
The Bills requested to seek bids to replace the AstroPlay surface which was installed in 2003. It’s expected the team will stick with artificial surface.
“Only the carpet needs to be replaced, and this does not involve the asphalt sub-base or the draining system,” said Scott Berchtold, the Bills’ vice president of communications.

I heard that they are going to change the field to an Arena Football field. Shortening the field to 50 yards should help the Bills have a chance to put more points up and stay competitive.

Um, the Bills scored more points than the Fins last year.

4-12 though is not competitive. Easy to put up more points when the defense is playing loose during garbage time.

It'd just be easier if they merge w/ the Sabres.
