Cleverly Throw Entire Season for Draft Picks
By Ronnie Roscoe
again my faithful followers, it is the master, Roscoe,
here again to give the best sports information in the free
world. The Buffalo Bills sunk to new depths this past weekend,
but rock bottom is still coming. Three weeks still remain
for Buffalo to prove just how bad they really are. The players
appear to be quitting on the coach, but in reality it was
the coach who first quit on the players.
was laughing and giggling like a little schoolgirl, when the
Bills scored three first quarter touchdowns against Miami.
Later when he called for a pass on first and goal from the
three-yard line, which resulted in an interception, Eric Moulds
had enough. Basically Mularkey quit coaching the game…he
was trying to get JP another passing touchdown, he was trying
to get some more giggles and smiles to show just how smart
he is. He wanted to laugh it up on the sidelines, but instead
lost the game.
coaching. Bottom line is the team knew that was stupid, and
Moulds as the teams elder statesman, had to send a message.
Basically, if the coach didn’t care about what was going on
why should he? Mularkey actually quit on the team, now the
team is going to quit on him.
not the first time that I have bashed Tom Donahoe, Mularkey
and the Buffalo Bills. Each week it seems as though the same
thing is pointed out—the team is lacking talent, the coaching
staff sucks, and upper management is in denial. This week
though the last remaining link to the Jim Kelly era had enough.
Hey, I am not saying Eric Moulds is an alter boy, far from
it. He has had his issues on and off the field, even before
coming to Buffalo. He thought it was his duty to speak out
and he told the coaching staff where they could stick their
football. Of course, Moulds needed to be disciplined for
doing this. It is kind of like the teenager yelling at mom
and dad, showing no respect for authority, but actually having
a point. The kid may be right, but mom and dad are the parents,
so off to the bedroom you go. The same applies with Moulds.
He knew he was right. The rest of the team knows he is right.
Hell, the owner even seems to agree with him, but he still
deserves some suspension, and he may serve more time, this
remains to be seen.
nothing has been stated publicly, the Master has his sources
around One Bills Drive and the popular opinion is that the
players have had enough of Mularkey and his crazy play calling.
Unfortunately, this is not enough to get him fired. Tom Clements
the offensive coordinator is certainly gone, and possibly
some other assistants (lets just hope the keep the special
teams coach, the only bright spot on this entire team), but
since Mularkey still has three years left on his current contract,
the odds are he will stay at least one more year. Ralph doesn’t
like spending money on people who don’t work for him. It
is highly unlikely that Mularkey will improve next year, but
it is possible to hire an offensive coordinator with head
coaching experience, that could move up to the top spot in
due time. This leaves us with Donahoe. Again Donahoe received
an extension recently, but the Moulds fiasco, the poor play
on the field, the success of Drew Bledsoe in Dallas where
he has a real coach and a real offensive line—not to mention
the fan apathy, have left Wilson with no choice. I have been
waiting a while to say this, “Pack your bags Tommy, the gig
is up.” You had a five-year run that gave Bills’ fan mediocre
teams twice and three pitiful teams. Nice work. You admitted
making a (colossal) mistake with the Gregg Williams hiring,
well maybe Ralph will admit the same after letting you go.
Tommy’s right hand man Tom (don’t call me Teflon Tom II) Modrak
is rumored to take over. That likely won’t solve anything.
It will be a different dog with the same fleas.
truth is the Bills are a joke. Wilson is old and senile, the
GM calls fans jerks when they disagree with him, and the coach
is more worried about tricks then wins. There are always
teams that you could laugh at because they were always inept.
The same teams year in and year out would finish in last place,
lose games week after week and rarely make the playoffs.
They would always have a high pick in the draft and would
always have first round bust after first round bust. You
could always look around the NFL and say, “well at least we
don’t live in Cincinnati.”
that isn’t the case anymore. If you thought Sunday versus
New England was ugly, wait two weeks. Christmas eve Buffalo
goes to Cincinnati. The only way Buffalo doesn’t lose by
30 points is if Cincy has already locked up the division and
benches their starters. Yes Cincinnati is going to kick the
shit out of the Bills, and lock up a first round bye in the
playoffs. Those same Bengals that always sucked and always
Lewis is the coach of the new-look Bengals. Tommy interviewed
him when deciding on Gregg Williams. It wasn’t that Tommy
didn’t choose Lewis; it was Lewis who said no to Tommy. Lewis
actually set the tone for the decade, by saying he didn’t
want the Buffalo job. He didn’t like what was going on in
Buffalo. His wife later admitted she didn’t even like
what was going on—very smart lady. They passed and waited
a year and accepted Cincinnati position instead. Someone
thought the Bengals were a better organization than the Bills.
The Bills were woeful for most of the 80’s but did set a winning
tone in the 90’s and a “refuse to lose” mentality. Tommy
has single handedly broke that spirit. Now players and coaches
want to go to Cincinnati not Buffalo.
between the two organizations will never be more evident than
the game on Christmas Eve. But like the GEICO commercial,
there is good news. Cincy will be favored by ONLY two touchdowns,
and will win by 30, so call your man and spread some cheer
by letting the Bills pay for Christmas—and thank Tommy as
the door hits his ass on the way out.
