It always pains me to write these blogs when the Bills get embarrassed and even more when it’s against the Patriots. So here the gist of it. The Bills lost 52-18! They lead 21-7, then Brady and the running game took over and scored a million points in a row.
To simplify things, here are things I foresaw in my last blog and what really happened!
- When is it a good time to face the Patriots? - When Brady, Welker, Gronkowski and Billichick retire
- I also expect our Buffalo defense to put Brady on the ground. – What happened to the D! They were playing well, then BLAMO! OH OH the Red Sea parted and the Patriots ran right up the middle.
- Momentum will play a big part on Sunday. - It sure did, but not in the Bills favor
- Jackson, Spiller or Choice… does it matter? - No it didn’t, the Patriots D ate them up and hit them hard
- I do not expect a cake walk by Buffalo but I expect a win. – I really did and for a while thought they could and until they figure a way to cover Welker they will not win this division.
I’m angry and disappointed but it’s not the end of the world. At the beginning of the year I predicted they would be 3-1 with the loss coming against the Patriots, but I tell you, I really felt they could have won that game. It’s frustrating enough to be a Bills fan but what grinds my gears is that they could have gone up two scores at the end of the half but fumbled. It’s those little things that sits in the pit of my stomach all week and I play the “What if” game. I believe this team is good, I believe this team can be really good, but I have a hard time right now BILLIEVING that this team is great. The next 3 weeks are not as easy as I thought they would be (really Arizona!) but these games will certainly show us how good or great the Buffalo Bills can be.
- Very classy to kick the field goal at the end Billichick. You never cease to amaze.
- Fitzpatrick leads the league in TD, but he also leads in INT.
- Will the real Mario Williams please stand up! (9 tackles, 1.5 sacks this season)
- Scott Chandler is a beast!
- Kraig Urbik will miss the next game with a upper ankle injury, no word yet on Glenn.
- I still hate Tom Brady.
