THURMAN THROWS TIRADE

Even after a 34-point victory, Buffalo Bills running back Thurman Thomas found a reason to get mad.

Thomas ran for 77 yards and a touchdown as the Bills bounced back from a loss to Indianapolis with a 44-10 victory over Kansas City. After the game, Thomas reluctantly faced the media and quickly grew tired of questions regarding the team's past troubles.

When asked whether the players ever wondered about their stalled offense, Thomas said:

"I never saw the point . . . yeah, we're scoring less points, but we still have a winning record," Thomas said. "You media people, y'all write all that . . . about `They need to do this and they need to do that.'

"Hey, we're going to do what we want to do. I don't give a damn what y'all say or how y'all go about saying it. We're going to do it the way we want to do it.

A reporter then asked if the Bills wanted to use the big victory over the Chiefs to build momentum for the second half of the season.

"I think 44 points is enough damn momentum," Thomas said, storming out. When the reporter tried to ask a follow up, Thomas told him to shut up.

Humphries, who is righthanded, was helped off the field and driven off on a cart.
