LeSean McCoy didn't tell his teammates beforehand.
Even four days after the fact, his eyes darted around the Buffalo Bills' locker room. He whispered.
"I didn't say anything to the guys," McCoy murmured Thursday as if revealing covert data, "but mentally I knew I was going to have a solid game."
McCoy's secret wouldn't keep that Sunday afternoon: He obviously love…

OK, fellas. You're in this together.
One doesn't escape if the other one fails. One can't leave the other behind.

When the Buffalo Bills revealed this year's promotional slogan, all I could think of were the ways it would backfire.
It's a double entendre. The fan base is unfailingly loyal, and the team sure does love to hand off.
