Announcements made by Jauron, not about him
Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Graham
I'm not sure what's more significant, Dick Jauron announcing he had lost two more linebackers for the rest of the season or the fact Jauron's still representing the Buffalo Bills.
Jauron remained in Bills gear Monday and maintained actual job responsibilities a day after his team evaporated at home versus the Cleveland Browns.
Bills fans were hoping they would wake up to news Jauron had been fired. The Bills are 1-7 over their past eight home games and haven't defeated a divisional opponent since December 2007.
The Bills get worse by the week, and discovering linebackers Kawika Mitchell and Marcus Buggs are gone for the year because of knee injuries in Sunday's loss make them that much less talented.
Like Lindsay Lohan, the Bills roster started out thin and has gotten frighteningly skinnier.
Original middle linebacker Paul Posluszny broke his forearm on opening night. Buggs replaced him for three games. Mitchell replaced Buggs on Sunday.
