    What a Disappointment!

    I really thought the Bills were going to break that penalty yardage record.

    So close and yet so far...

    I was actually proud of them today.

    and now I'm broken once again.

    Re: What a Disappointment!

    I'm over the being proud. this isn't high school. no one gives a crap that we only lost by 6 pts to the cheatriots. it's just another L. get a QB, get a coach then i'll start to care again
    My faith doesn’t make me perfect, it makes me forgiven.

    Re: What a Disappointment!

    I'm not pinning this on Fitz at all. The guy played great today and I think that Graham ****ed up the route.

    The problem is the ****ing defense and Dave Wannstadt. Whenever he brought pressure on Brady, we had success. When Brady could sit back, he tore us apart, just like every other QB in the NFL.

    Funny-ass post. To the Bills credit, half of those penalties were absolute horse****.

    But this is so typical of Fitz. It's the 2nd time this season that the guy had a great game, but then choked when it counted most. He's not clutch and he's not a winner.

    Re: What a Disappointment!

    It's always something. Bad play(s) by Fitz, bad route, poor tackling. To me it starts with management and coaching and the Bills will never be good with inferior management and coaches. The Bills have not addressed the QB position except trading for a QB that they will not suit up. Bad route running and poor tackling equals bad coaching. Same stuff every year.

    Fitz doesn't fumble that ball in quarter number one, we don't need to do anything else in that two minute drive besides run out the clock.

    Re: What a Disappointment!

    I can't pin this one on Fitz. When that play developed, all of us in my house screamed at Graham for not cutting in front of the CB. I guarantee you that if Jones is in there, it'll be a different story. In fact Jones made the exact same play earlier, and that's when it was not in the end zone.

    I don't care what Fitz would say to take the blame for the rookie. Just look at the CB position in the end zone, there is no way in hell the play or the option on the play calls for going behind the CB. And the ball should be out before or right at the time Graham making the cut, and they had cleared that area nicely; in other words, no way for Fitz to hold back (or you are going to see a Trent Edwards type of throws).

    This is just that - a bad luck. Jones got hurt and Jackson got hurt, using up two timeouts leaving the Bills with no choice but pass. I can almost hear Belichick says the exact same thing as he said in the last superbowl: "cover Johnson, cover Chandler, challenge Graham to beat you." Unfortunately, he's right this time.

    Philosophical question: If you expect disappointment can you still be disappointed? I'm seriously grappling that question right now.

    Doesn't matter. It's a position that a starting NFL QB should be able to handle. The loss wasn't his fault, but he was in a position to win and couldn't pull it off.

    It's funny too.

    They basically went away during the Kelly years.

    Watching us play the Pats this last decade really reminds me of watching the Bills-Dolphins games in the 1970's.

    Of course there were the occasional 45-7 blowouts, but for the most part, the games were competitive, just like yesterday. It's just that the Bills would figure out a way to blow it in the end...Pat Toomay bumping a referee....Tony Greene's 105 yard interception TD called back for Defensive holding...Dempsey missing the kick in the rain in 1979...the list goes on and on.

    Thanks for letting me rant.

    I just feel like I've seen this movie before.
