Buffalo Bills' receiver Andre Reed sits on the bench late in the fourth quarter after getting ejected from the game for unsportsmanlike conduct during the Bills' 24-17 loss to the Miami Dolphins in the AFC wild card Saturday, Jan. 2, 1999, at Pro Player Stadium in Miami. Andre Reed, Bruce Smith, Thurman Thomas. All three are a part of football's greatest stretch of postseason futility _ four straight Super Bowl losses in the early 1990s. They still resonate with the roar of the crowd, and are studies in perseverance.
