Bills on right track ... seriously

The Bills are one of four teams that have been skunked through the opening quarter of the season.

Of the four teams that have opened 0-4 -- Buffalo, Detroit, San Francisco and Carolina -- the Bills would have to be rated as the worst team, No 32 out of 32 teams.

The week after they jettisoned their starting quarterback Trent Edwards, the Bills have parted ways with their top running back, Marshawn Lynch, and seem to be zeroing in on next year's No. 1 pick in the draft like a cruise missile.

The usual course of action for the Bills the past decade is to somehow win six to eight games, not make the playoffs and not get the high draft pick, a franchise type of player they desperately need.

But this year could be different. This season they have the capacity to bottom out and finish with the worst record in the league.

Beginning Sunday when they play host to Jacksonville, they have just three legitimate shots at a win barring a major upset. The other two games where they could conjure up a win are Nov. 14 at home against the Lions and then a Dec. 12 home date against the Browns.

If the Bills don't screw up and pull off an upset or two, they could be in line to draft someone like Washington Huskies quarterback Jake Locker, who last Saturday led his team to an upset victory over USC.

Four games in and without a win, the Bills are on the right track.
