    Magic of Miami Week has vanished

    Columnist: Mike Harrington Buffalo News
    "Miami Week used to mean everything. Not it's just game one. What a shame."


    It's Miami Week. Squish the Fish, right? Are you pumped?

    Didn't think so. No way to rekindle those old feelings. And that's really too bad. Don't you have to have some hate for the other side to really feel like it's football season?

    Miami Week used to mean everything. Now it's just game one. What a shame. Fans can't hate the Dolphins anymore. Who's the quarterback? Who's the coach? You barely know. Can you hate guys who end practice on their knees searching for a diamond earring?

    There's no sign of The Jaw or Jimmy on the sidelines. No Marino. No Super Duper and Clayton. Where's Bryan Cox and his digits protruding to the sky?

    The Bills are completely irrelevant so they can't even have a rival. Do the Patriots think of the Bills as a rival? Of course not. Pats-Jets is going to be big-time stuff this year. The Bills are facing the ugly reality they'll be big losers. The Jets are reality stars.

    Miami Week meant everything. It's that wonderful NFL Films footage of Lou Saban in the locker room prior to a 1974 heartbreaker at the Orange Bowl: "You can get it done. You can get it done. What's more. You gotta get it done."

    The Bills didn't, of course. They lost, 35-28. One of 20 straight losses. Oh-for-the-decade.

    I would probably write crap like this if my team sucked too.

    The Bills suck.
    john beck should be a Miami Dolphin.

    On this night it was just the latest reminder that, for this franchise, it seems all the best moments are seen through the prism of the rearview, and ever-receding.

    the reason it doesnt mean anything anymore is because the bills are no longer relevant. When was the last time the bills did anything?

    Have to say it rings a little true. It`s certainly not the rivalry it was back in the 90`s. Still, to avid Dolphins/Bills fans it`s a huge game....always will be!

    Yea, it's still huge, but in the 90's when I was growing up it was everything, I remember the joy I felt when Marino went into then Rich Stadium w/ newly signed tight end Keith Jackson and walloped the Bills early in the season after one of their Super Bowl losses, and Mark Clayton on the sidelines talking trash late in the 4th while the starters removed their pads because the game was in hand...

    the utter disappointment that same season when the Bills were able to upset us in the AFC Championship game in Joe Robbie....I was 6 and I cryed and my ruthless Bills fans classmates tortured me the whole week until they got smashed by the Cowboys, but even then I couldn't say anything...

    I remember 2000 playoffs, when Sam Madison was talking junk all week, and despite getting burnt by Moulds (god that happened way too often), Trace Armstrong came through and clinched the victory by sacking Flutie Flakes, after Andre Reed's boneheaded Personal Foul...

    I remember sitting in the Ralph, through a terrible December snow storm, as Ricky ran the ball for over 200 yards and 3 TDs! only to be disappointed in the end as Bledsoe was able to throw the ball accurately downfield despite what seemed like hurricane force winds

    The week ain't the same, and I probably won't be heckled in the Ralph this weekend for my Marino jersey like I would've been in 95, but Bills week'll always be huge to me
