Are you ready for some football?

Lost internet on the ship with 10:24 left in the 4th of the Bills game and I’m so glad I didn’t go watch the game in the sports bar. Met 1 other Bills fan on board and he said the same thing that he wishes he hadn’t bothered. :persevere:
Not interested in what their excuses are/were, it sounds like it was a total embarrassment across the board.
At least the Cowchips lost so there’s some solace in knowing that :+1:

:disappointed_relieved:

Also I am opposed to coaches on teams currently active in the Playoffs being allowed to interview for coaching positions with other teams… Wait until the team’s season is over first.
Maybe our OC Dorsey would have had a better game plan if he wasn’t focused on interviewing for a head coaching job in Carolina before our game!

OOOHH “cow chips,” ha I get it.

A Jerruh-hating Texas friend and I decided yesterday that the Bills could use rebranding:

The Fighting Snowdrifts
The Nearly Ohios
The Porch Couches
The Niagara Ninnies
The Dirty Carhartts
The Discount Smokes on the Res
The Cheektowaga MaybeNextYears
The Burner Phones
Cole Beasley’s Mighty Antivaxxers
The Flaming Recliners
The Damn Near to Canadas
The Passion Nails and Spas
The Scott Norwoods
The Strip Mall Slot Parlors
Thurman Thomas’ Missing Helmets
The Battling Perogis
The Pocket Wrenches
The Bondo Pickups
The Zoar Valley Domestic Violence Hotline

Honestly I do root for the Bills, because it puts the locals in good moods (well, except for Jets fans), but it’s a little like rooting for your nephew’s JV team.

Odd, my wife and I were doing the same thing, but perhaps with less vitriol. My major issue is that William Cody wasn’t from New York, and there is no real evidence that there were ever bison near Buffalo.

We settled on The Lake-Effect Lunkheads or the Almost Canadans (spelling intentional).

I’ve also advocated for SU ditching Otto the Orange in favor of a chain-smoking plow driver named Earl, but no dice yet. I’ll get you, Otto, you freak.

A good read but some of us are wondering if he’s plateaued and could start to regress like former Panthers QB Cam Newton when he approached his 30th year of age and faded out of existence shortly after :face_with_diagonal_mouth:

We’re trying to keep the hope that one day we’ll get a Super Bowl victory some day but some of the elders are beginning to lose faith that they will see our Bills ever hoist the Lombardi in their life time :disappointed_relieved:

We know who’s really to blame…

Pearls_Mint beat you to the punch on that one (click the parent post for the reveal)

Lot of folks saying the Bills need a top-drawer RB… it certainly didn’t hurt the Bengals any. Might help to take all of the defensive focus off him, might even help with the turnovers.

The Bills with a Derrick Henry type would have, could have changed the complexion of last week’s game.

The only team left in the playoffs that I’m really high on, picked their unform combo for the game. It’s the same one they wore for the Bills matchup.

“According to The Athletic’s Jay Morrison the Bengals are 8-1 in this combination since introducing the new uniforms last year.”

This made for an interesting read

I’d like the Beagles and the Noiners and Kermit the Mahomes to all be sad, so go Bungles, I guess.

Frank Reich is now the HC of the Carolina Panthers. Started 3 games for Carolina in 1995, their inaugural year.
I got Reich’s autograph back in 1994 when he left the Bills and came to Carolina for their first teams practice at the Winthrop Coliseum.
I’d like to hope he can be a great HC but I think he would have made a better Offensive Coordinator :face_with_diagonal_mouth:

NY Jets sign Nate Hackett as offensive coordinator (a job he is much better suited)

Yeah, some guys just aren’t head coaching material, and that’s okay, specialists are as important. But an interesting move in light of the Aaron Rodgers trade rumors that have linked the Jets as a strong candidate for the QB.

Frankly, I’m okay with moving off of Aaron and starting a new. He gave the Pack a lot of great seasons, but I think it’s time. Even if we bomb with Love or whomever, it’s better than spinning wheels and never getting to the ultimate destination like we have been.

And it goes beyond QB, as there are rumors of some old timers no longer been retained in 2023. Let the rebuild commence.

And soon after… :open_mouth:
