Bills to start Kyle Orton; Super Bowl berth awaits

September 30, 2014 – 12:52 am by Hickey

KO Bills

The Buffalo Bills announced that they mean business on Monday, naming Kyle Orton their starting quarterback for next week’s game against Detroit in place of their first-round pick from last season, EJ Manuel.

    Bill Simmons

In case you’re unaware, ESPN suspended arguably its most popular personality on Wednesday when the company sidelined Bill Simmons for three weeks for having the audacity to profanely refer to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell a liar, then challenge his employers to reprimand him for it.

We think it’s a raw deal — which is why we are cordially welcoming Bill Simmons to join the Rumors and Rants team. I mean, really cordially.

Dearest Bill,

What if I told you that you could move on from the oppressive yoke of ESPN to a place where you’re appreciated? After long discussions today we have decided to extend a job offer to you. We realize it’s an offer you can’t refuse, but we do want to present a few facts about our site and give you a chance to really mull over this opportunity.

Here’s the low-down.
