Not a beautiful morning

Seriously?  I mean this is the time to make that official?  They totally insult our intelligence and dedication.  Obviously it says sources, but for this to even come out after the way yesterday turned out is a swift kick to the groin.

I woke up this morning and tried to think about something positive about yesterday’s game and the only one I can really come up with automatically leads me to the worst of it.  Marshawn Lynch was for lack of a better word a beast yesterday.  He called out himself and the whole O-line and himself went out to prove himself wrong.  I loved watching him on the sideline trying to get people fired up with god forbid a little emotion.  But with Marshawn Lynch playing another great game it just compounds the coaching mistake to throw the ball on 2nd down instead of running and trying to pick up the first down after you had already picked up 6 on first!  That makes too much sense and we roll out Losman who seems to have the decision making capability of a 4 year old and expect him to make the smart play?  Good god. You run the ball on second and you run the ball on third.  JP LOSMAN IS AT QUARTERBACK!  I mean as soon as JP rolled out who seriously went, “oh good I’m glad they didn’t give the ball to our best player and rolled out Losman, I think that will catch the Jets off guard.”  Not only could you see the sack coming, but you knew it was going to be a fumble too.

 

As a fan, as a team they needed to win that game.  This is a young impressionable team that learned early in the season how to win some games, but they’ve forgot that feeling.  This is a solid core of young players who need to know how to turn the corner.  There was an article by Leo Roth in the Rochester D&C on Saturday that talked with Kawika Mitchell about the difference between this year with the Bills and last year with the Giants and he said it was the players.  I like that Donte Whitner has taken a leadership role, I really do.  But every good team has viable veteran leadership that forces the players to hold themselves accountable.  For instance, I’ve been saying for a while the Bills need to bring in a number 2 receiver this offseason and it may have to be a note in itself, but out of curiosity I looked up free agent wide receivers and a name of a guy I thought would be good for this young group.   Amani Toomer (TJ Houshmandzadeh is a pipe dream), a guy who’s been around forever on winning teams and just gets the job done.  He can teach Hardy and Johnson the position and more importantly be a great complement to Lee Evans. I know the Bills contract situation with receivers is loaded and they don’t have anyone coming off, but that’s why I’m a fan of saying goodbye to Roscoe.  I love Roscoe as a punt returner when he’s not fielding punts on the 1, but I would much rather be getting production out of the receiver spot and put Jackson, McKelvin or someone else that is completely capable of returning punts back there.  This team is the opposite of 2003 when we had older, veteran players and no young talent.  Now the question is, do the people at One Bills Drive know what to do to solve it?

Why wouldn’t that game have been that game have gone that exact way.  It’s almost like the Bills managed to wrap their whole season up in one game.  A whirlwind affair that left you feeling like you had been stood up on a blind date.  I was rather ho-hum about the whole game, but they managed to get me hooked no matter how much I tried and they did a great job punching me in the gut at the end.  At least we finally got a touchdown.

 

-Is JP Losman going to get a contract next year?  That’s a serious question.  He has fumbling issues, sacks issues and can’t throw the ball accurately.  Now obviously someone is going to sign him to some sort of deal, but I can’t wait to see what kind of contract he’s going to get.  Seriously, how do you complete 24 balls for only 148 yards?  Everyone said that Edwards loved the check down, but are our receivers even open? 

 

-I’ve been saying for a long time that I’m high on Steve Johnson and with Hardy going down and Roscoe Parrish being worthless at the position I hope they use the last two games to at least get a look at him.  Roscoe needs to go and they need to bring in a veteran number two receiver to complement Evans and allow Hardy and Johnson to grow.  Will they do that, probably not?

 

-How great was it watching a young TE catch balls and outrun our defense all day?

 

-I’m glad to see that Marshawn finally got over twenty carries (21) but seriously, what the hell were they thinking throwing on that second down play before the two minute warning?  The only thing I can think of was they thought they’d catch them off guard and an incompletion would’ve gotten them to the warning anyways and JP should’ve thrown the ball away. But come on, seriously.  I’m not joking that I think the top 10% of knowledgeable Bills fans could call a better game than Turk Schonert has in weeks.

 

-Donte Whitner had 9 tackles and a decent second half, but he was atrocious for that first half and it killed the Bills.  He looked slow and lost and I have to say it was scary to see that.

 

-Fred Jackson’s touchdown run was a great play and that’s where they really hooked me today.

 

-Who didn’t think there was a flag on that McKelvin return?  I just hate CBS for not putting the symbol up sooner because they tricked me.

 

-Did Dan Dierdorf say golly gee, twice?

 

Game Ball obviously goes to Marshawn Lynch who deserves so much more credit. 21 carries for 127 yards and went over a 1,000 yards. If Edwards can’t go next week I saw the Bills run the Wildcat the whole game.

 

This next two weeks needs to be serious talent evaluation time for the Bills and the front office. I’m watching players like McKelvin, Lynch, Johnson and the line to see if this team can really use these pieces for next year.   I laughed today when Losman fumbled because it was funny how fitting it was.  My wife said it scared her how calm I was after the game and it’s because this team has taken the life out of us.  Don’t get me wrong, I bleed Buffalo blue and red (or blue and gold depending on the day), but we’re a disgruntled union of fans.  We’re like the UAW who doesn’t want to face the reality that this team and franchise could be worse off than we expect.  There are a lot of players that need to be addressed whether or not they are going to help Buffalo win games any time soon and the coaching situation is going to need to be addressed sooner rather than later one way or another.  It comes with the territory, but right now as a Bills fan there are a lot more questions than there are answers.

How bad was that to watch?  Honestly, if this team hasn’t become a joke enough.  I’m not even sure where I’m going to go with this, but here’s my best chance to wrap up that piece of shit:

 

Needless to say, I hated that game.  I hated hearing those Dolphins fans cheer, I hated that the game was in a dome.  I hated everything about today. 

 

JP Losman is gone, out of here and not a good quarterback.  How funny was the CBS breakdown of his progressions and then they put a ?.  That was hysterical.  I’m sure someone is going to pick him up and give him a chance, but he’s going to play himself out of a solid contract.

Wonder if I'll have a job next year?

Wonder if I'll have a job next year?

 

This is becoming a broken record, but how about Marshawn Lynch carries the ball for more than 13 times?  I don’t care that he had 31 yards, you need to commit to him and give him the ball. 

 

Seriously, our offense is awful.  That was the second game in a row that was painful to watch.

 

We’ve all ripped play calling and it was a combination of play calling and execution, but the first down call to run a fade to Evans in stead of Hardy was atrocious.

 

The Bills do not have a single player on their team that is in the top 5 of their positions.  The talent just isn’t there.

 

The Bills are a sloppy team and it started with Losman, but Royal had a drop (Go figure), Lynch had a drop and there were numerous other instances where this team was sloppy and showed why they are not as close as the rest of the AFC East is.  And for the second week we had a bad snap?

 

Is anyone else sick and tired about hearing how hard and how much heart Ryan Denney and Chris Kelsay have and play with?  They aren’t that good and it’s compounded by not having a health Aaron Schobel on the other end.

 

Can we just fast forward 5 months until the draft?

Wish we were at this point now.

I wasn’t even sure how this was going to end up and it pretty much went the way I thought it would because of the ways played. Discombobulated and unorganized.  I don’t care what anyone says, the coaching is awful at the top and Turk has taken a dive.  It’s like a Mike Martz offense and we don’t have that type of personnel.  The reason I like Steve Johnson is he seems to be the only one that gets the middle of the field.  The Bills need a tight end to stretch the middle of the field.  We need a center that can handle playing against a 3-4. 

 

Game balls go to all of us Bills fan for dealing with this shit.  It’s awful.  I don’t know why we keep doing this, but we do and I love us and this organization, but it feels like a bad marriage and we are constantly taken advantage of and abused.  On top of it we had a game ripped away from us. I don’t go to many games any more, but I have lots of friends who are season ticket holders and they’re angry.  We’re constantly told we’re not a good enough region for a football team and need to do things to survive.  Well today the Bills played like they didn’t deserve us as a fan base, although they always will have us.
