Thurman Thomas isn't talking proud about his Buffalo Bills anymore.

The Hall of Fame running back, speaking at a fundraiser this weekend in Corning, N.Y., sounded quite ashamed of what's been going on with his old team.

Corning Leader reporter John Zick covered the event, during which Thomas fielded questions from the 100 or so folks in attendance.

"The team I can't stomach the most when I watch them is probably the Buffalo Bills," Thomas said. "I'm serious. They stink."

Buffalo has gone 7-9 three straight seasons and hasn't made the playoffs since 1999.

Thomas was asked his thoughts about troubled Bills running back Marshawn Lynch, who last summer was involved in a hit-and-run incident and last month in California was charged with possession of a loaded, concealed and unlicensed firearm.

"If I was the GM, he'd be out of there," Thomas said.

When asked if he still keeps in touch with Scott Norwood, the kicker who missed what would have been the winning field goal in Super Bowl XXV, Thomas cracked "Who?"
