Aaron Williams, a Genius?

by Steve

Haha, how did I miss this from Monday?

"“It’s been too many times where … we don’t take chances,” safety Aaron Williams said. “I feel like teams around this league, the reason why they’re successful most times, is because they do take chances and they are confident about their defense going out there and making three stops at midfield, or even, heck, at the 20-yard line. I encourage Coach to be aggressive and just believe in the defense.”

“I tell myself this and I joke about it, but sometimes I really mean it, I feel like if we can’t make a fourth and 1, we shouldn’t be able to win that game,” he said. “Fourth and 1 is literally just taking one step. It’s all about ‘want to,’ and the attitude of wanting to get that first down or wanting to make that stop if they don’t get a first down.”"

BOOM ROASTED St Doug! That isn't some fake twitter account that is one of the defensive leaders and highest paid players on the Bills, Aaron Williams!  If players are saying this publicly what do you think they are saying when the media isn't around?

It probably doesn't matter much at this point because the playoffs are now a myth and Marrone will be fired after the season.  But what the hell has to happen for St Doug to fucking wake up and realize he has to do something different to change the trajectory of this season and his career.  I'm thinking something like Riverboat Ron last year changing course and the Panthers going on a tear.

Marrone was a joke from the beginning but at least some of the players are starting to speak out and rip this clown.

Week 12 Bills Power Rankings Compilation

After two L's in 5 days lets see where the Bills are ranked:

ESPN 19:
"Kyle Orton was 5-of-13 for 47 yards and a sack against the Dolphins' blitz Thursday. The Jets, who blitz on one-third of dropbacks, will likely follow suit."

Orton is still the starting QB? Ouch.


CBS 18;
"Why are they sticking with Kyle Orton? There's nothing to gain from it." 

Three spot drop and Prisco has given up on Orton


NFL 19:
"A lot of big plays were left out on the field in Miami, and you better believe the Bills know it. Dropped interceptions, missed receivers and a couple of close calls that went the Dolphins' way come to mind. We recommended that Bills fans hit up Lasertron a couple of weeks ago, but after Thursday's loss, I would advise grabbing a refreshment at Ulrich's Tavern. That place was around 100 years before fans were getting depressed about the "same old Bills."

Truth.

Yahoo 18:
"Nobody checked the expiration date on Kyle Orton. It has passed."

Orton has evidently died. Oh well.


PFT 19:
"19. Buffalo Bills (No. 16; 5-5):  Broncos fans may be able to send a few “Orton Hears a Boo” signs to Buffalo."

Ugh Orton does suck.


Walterfootball 23:
"23. Buffalo Bills (5-5) - Previously: #19 - So... can we finally stop pretending that the Bills are a good team? Yeah? OK, cool."


Highest 18 lowest 23.  Basically Orton sucks big time and everyone knows it.

Week 11 Bills Power Rankings Compilation

After a devastating awful loss to the Chiefs at home, where does the national media have the Bills:


ESPN :

CBS 17:
"At 5-4, they play a huge one Thursday against the Dolphins in Miami. It's sort of an elimination game."

Not much from Pete, one spot behind the Dolphins.

Yahoo 17 :
"They played well enough to win, but if you're going to break a playoff drought that dates back to 1999, you have to actually win. I don't know how they get to 10 wins now, and nine won't be enough."

Some real talk! Only a one spot drop though.

PFT  16:
"For coach Doug Marrone, Thursday night’s game against the Dolphins is a little like the sales contest in Glengarry Glen Ross."

Two spot regression but ahead of the Dolphins with a fresh movie reset.

NFL  :

Walterfootball 19. Buffalo Bills (5-4). Previously: #18 :
No comments, Dolphins are 15th.

The Bills go Bills and Give Game to the Chiefs

By Steve

Not a lot of Kyle Orton contract extension talk today is there. Not that Orton was the main reason the Bills lost yet again to the average Chiefs at home in a must have game though.

The Bills just about dominated Kansas City yet some how only managed 13 points and allowed 14 fourth quarter death knell points. Holy shit lets count the plays that cost them the game. If any of these plays didn't happen there is little doubt the Bills lose.

Bryce Brown fumbles the ball going into the endzone. Not only did he fumble but the ball bounced right towards idiot Scott Chandler and of course he couldnt simply pick it up for a TD.

The Chiefs punt yet again mid way through the 4th qt and instead of just fair catching it or taking a few yards and go down Leodis McKelvin fumbles deep in his own territory. If it didn't happen I would have been surprised.

4th and inches near mid field. Instead of actually trying to snap the ball and get a foot St Doug outsmarts no one, the Bills were called for a false start and the Bills punt instead.

Orton has mutiple chances to score at the Kc 15 after an easy first down. Incomplete Incomplete Incomplete Incomplete. The Bills of course give up a first down, game over.

It is amazing that the Bills lost this game. They didnt score a TD in four red zone chances, they live and love to punt on 4th and 1, and always give up a dagger when they need too. Why didn't someone call a time out on the 4th and 1 Jamaal Charles easily converted and waltzed into the endzone. WTF?

The season may or may not be over but what does it matter. They aren't making the playoffs this season. The coach is a loser the quarterback is a mediocrity and the team will seemingly never wash the stink off them from nearly a decade and a half of failure.

The only option, besides Brady and Belichick retiring or an Andrew Luck esque QB magically showing up, is a real coach with new ideas or a winner like Jim Harbaugh.
Maybe next year.
