Collinsworth Piles on the Bills Game in Toronto

Cris Collinsworth, an analyst for NBC, The NFL Network and Showtime, has never been one to hold back his opinions.

So it wasn't surprising that he had this to say Wednesday on Showtime's "Inside the NFL" about the Buffalo Bills decision to move one of its home games to Toronto. It turned out to be last Sunday's 16-3 loss to the Miami Dolphins.

"In the history of the National Football League, there has never been anything dumber than the Buffalo Bills selling out their home game against the Miami Dolphins to go play in Toronto and take the cash," said Collinsworth. "Season over. Thank you very much, Buffalo Bills. I hope they spend the money wisely."

Of course, that's a bit of an exaggeration. I'm sure there have been some dumber things in the history of the league. Heck, the Detroit Lions do something dumber practically every year when they select a No. 1 pick in the draft.

In the Bills' defense, they say they didn't pick the Miami game to be moved to Toronto, the NFL did.

But I'm sure Collinsworth's point of view has its supporters in Buffalo. What do you think of his remarks? And can you think of anything dumber in the history of the NFL?
