Buffalo Bills excitement isn't limited to the fans or the media that have turned them into a chic playoff pick.
Hall of Fame running back Thurman Thomas is pumped up, too. Thomas told Jamestown Post-Journal reporter Scott Kindberg this week the Bills should win double-digit games and will go to the postseason for the first time since he was on the roster.
"I'm definitely going to say playoffs,'' said Thomas, a guest instructor for the Fundamental Football Camp at Chautauqua Lake Central School in Mayville. ''I saw the schedule and I saw 10 or 11 wins.
"As a former player, it all depends on health. The last couple years, the Bills have had more players on injured reserve than anyone in the National Football League. Everybody looks good on paper.''
