Dismal, grim, inept, nauseating ...you can use any adjective you want in describing the Buffalo Bills performance against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday at New Era Field. Entering the game only one game in the win column separated the two teams but on the field they were light years apart. The Steelers manhandled and embarrassed the Bills on their way to a 27-20 victory.
It was not a pretty season by far. But the Bills have some new fans in a city that already has a football team. You see, when the Buffalo Bills beat the NY Jets yesterday, they helped that other team make it to the playoffs.
After a season of good efforts, close calls and near misses, the Buffalo Bills put in a real stinker against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The defense was fair, special teams was bad and the offense was just awful.
Being a lifelong Buffalo Bills fan, I know all about what it feels like to be an underdog. And because I know that feeling so well, I always have a tendency to root for the underdog. In yesterday's Broncos/Steelers NFL Wildcard playoff game, it was Denver that was the clear underdog. Their record of 8 and 8 was just a wee bit better than our own Buffalo Bills.
I don't like drama, and with Tebow and the Broncos, this season has had more drama than I can handle. Everyone knows who Tebow is and for months he has been the talk of the nation. Many topics regarding Tebow have been talked about including his religious beliefs, his personal life, his college career plus his leadership skills and lack of football skills. Most fans including myself believe that T
He's a star receiver of the Pittsburgh Steelers, MVP of Super Bowl 40 and he's in the running to win this year's "Dancing With the Stars". But all of that didn't matter to Los Angeles police who handcuffed Hines Ward and the female driver of the car they were in early Thursday morning. Their car was stopped because it turned up on a list of stolen cars.
I'll never understand how anyone who has ever earned over a million dollars in a year could possibly go bankrupt. I just can't fathom it. But then again, I've never been in that situation.
Now it looks like bankruptcy could cause the backup quarterback of the Pittsburgh Steelers to lose his superbowl rings.
