“Big Gulps, huh? Welp, see ya later.” – Lloyd Christmas It’s mid-December and it’s that time where Buffalo will start evaluating their younger talent as they have for the last decade plus. I’m keeping it short and sweet this week as the Bills performance does not warrant much commentary. As for the featured image? That’s Psy doing his best Ryan Fitzpatrick impression. What do I Billieve following Buffalo’s beatdown? Oh where do I begin? 1. C.J. Spiller: What Could Have Been… C.J. Spiller rushed the ball against the Seahawks 17 times for 103 yards and a touchdown. It was another notable performance for the Bills running back and with his day, Spiller eclipsed the 1,000 yard mark for the first time in his young career. Spiller reached the milestone on just 154 carries which in terms of carries is 2nd to only Beattie Feathers of the 1934 Chicago Bears. 2. The Defense was Offensive Man, this team knows how to make me look bad. I praised them up and down for the last four weeks and placed all the blame on the defense. I stated all the facts about how improved the team was against the run, how it was limiting teams to an average of 11 offensive points, etc. On Sunday, the defense looked just like they did in the beginning of the year: Lost. Wannstedt’s defense was exposed over and over again by Russell Wilson and the Seahawks. Yesterday, the Bills defense took a major step back. 3. Comparing 3rd Round Picks T.J. Graham: 3 catches, 32 yards, 4 drops Russell Wilson: 14/23 205 yards, 1 TD; 9 rushes, 92 yards 3 TD. I’m only comparing the two after GM Buddy Nix’s comments from this past week: “I firmly believe that winners come in all sizes,” said Nix. ”I think Russell Wilson was one and we knew that. We spent a lot of time with Russell and he was on our radar, but we had one, we felt like we had to have a speed receiver. They took him in the third and that was a little high for us as far as our needs. If you knew Russell Wilson was a winner and his only limit was his height, how was the 3rd round too high in terms of Buffalo’s needs? We desperately need a franchise QB and that should always supersede the need of a speed WR. I’m not saying Graham won’t turn into a decent NFL player, but if Buffalo was truly interested in Wilson, he should have been the pick in the third round of the draft.     The post 3 Things I “Billieve” Following the Buffalo’s Embarrassing 50-17 Loss to the Seattle Seahawks appeared first on Queen City Sports.

Sick Catch by Buffalo Bills WR Stevie Johnson

Bills/Seahawks recap: 50-17

I was hanging out in the booth at a fine local bar by my crib. Pretty much I was waiting for the Bills game to come on and brass myself for another disappointing Sunday where Twitter entertains me more than the actual football product. To my right, I noticed a bunch of diehard Steelers fans. I know this has been repeated a few times by me and others, but I've always been envious...
