As if clinching their 13th consecutive season of missing the playoffs wasn’t enough for Buffalo fans, the Bills decided that they wanted to fall to a level far lower than they’ve hit all season Sunday as they lost to the Seattle Seahawks 50-17 in Toronto.
How many horrible things can be said about the Bills abysmal effort yesterday?
Quite a bit, let’s make a list of the things the Bills did poorly on Sunday:
Allowed 50 points
Lost by 33 points
Played the game in Toronto
Got smoked by Russell Wilson, a quarterback the Bills passed on in the 3rd round
The Bills actual 3rd round pick TJ Graham struggled badly.
No surprise, Ryan Fitzpatrick continued with his mediocre play.
The defense was schooled by the read option, a college style offense. (despite the fact that both Chan Gailey and Dave Wannstedt were college head coaches)
The $100 million man Mario Williams had his worst game in weeks. Was a non-presence as Russell Wilson constantly teased the Bills D-line.
And honestly, that list could go on a lot longer than the list of points I included.
Basically, the only way to describe Buffalo’s effort yesterday is that it was an embarrassment.
In hindsight, Bills fans probably shouldn’t have watched the game.
There was nothing good that was going to come out of it.
Even if the Bills had won, it would’ve been considered a disappointment to many fans who believe that Buffalo would be sacrificing a draft pick for a win that doesn’t mean anything.
Add in the fact that the game was in Toronto, I bet many fans could care less had they even turned on the game.
While you can never tell with 100% accuracy how players actually feel, it came across as if the Bills have lost interest in the season and have no faith in their coach.
The mistakes this team has made this year are unacceptable and there were a ton of them again on Sunday.
This falls on the players and the coaches but one thing that can be said with confidence is that it is downright embarrassing.
When a team misses the playoffs 13 consecutive seasons, there’s going to be many lows along the way.
Sunday afternoon might have been the Bills lowest moment over that time frame.
A team that was supposed to compete for a playoff spot is now fighting to finish with the same record they had last year.
It’s gotten to the point where you wonder if the Bills can even drop any lower.
They have become the laughing stock of the NFL, joining the likes of the 90’s Bengals and the early 2000’s Cardinals.
It all falls on ownership, management, and coaching. Changes need to be made and soon.
The Bills have some talent but it appears that it will be wasted unless the organization takes a different path in the upcoming future.
If Buffalo doesn’t make some drastic changes soon, it’s not going to be pretty when the Bills reach their next lowest point.

BEST OF MAXIM
The Seattle Seahawks have made the biggest jump on our power rankings this week rising from 13 to 7 and it isn’t hard to see why. Their 108 points over the past two weeks are about the biggest statement a team can make at this time of the season and it comes as they are in the heat of a playoff race for both the NFC wildcard and the division crown. Depending on their seeding Seattle...
Russell Wilson completed 14-of-23 passes for 205 yards with one touchdown and added nine carries for 92 yards and three touchdowns in the Seahawks’ 50-17 Week 15 win over the Bills. Wilson came into this game with zero touchdowns rushing all season. That was a fluke, and so was this hat trick. Two of his rushing scores came on zone reads during which the Bills failed to cover the...
Russell Wilson, Marshawn Lynch and the Seattle Seahawks are the team that no one in the NFL wants to play right now. They are on an unbelievable roll. After going into Solider field and winning a game against the Chicago Bears that no one gave them a chance to win, The Seahawks' 150 points scored over the last three weeks are tied for third most by a team in any...
A little over a month ago, the Seattle Seahawks had seemingly plateaued and appeared ready for a sharp and sudden plummet back to reality, and presumably the NFC West cellar. But, oh, how things have changed.
Coming off a pair of tough losses heading into the second half of the season, Seattle sat with a middling 4-4 record and a treacherous road ahead of them. The same team that...
We all knew it would come to this, right? We didn’t want to believe it but, deep down inside, we knew better. We all knew that one of the many bungled calls made by those replacement refs, who simultaneously entertained and enraged us the first three weeks of the 2012 season, would come back to haunt us.
It’s almost divine providence that their most infamous call could, if the...
TORONTO -- Rookie quarterback Russell Wilson rushed for three touchdowns and passed for another as the red-hot Seattle Seahawks pummeled the hapless Buffalo Bills 50-17 at the Rogers Centre on Sunday. The explosive performance by the former Wisconsin star enabled the Seahawks (9-5) to win for fifth time in six games. The Bills (5-9) were officially eliminated from playoff contention...
The Seattle Seahawks have rolled their last two opponents by scores of 58-0 and 50-17, for a total combined margin of victory of 91 points. That doesn't happen very often as noted by NFL's Director of NFC Football Communications Randall Liu.
. @seahawks have won past 2 by 91 points, largest combined margin of victory in 2-game span in @nfl since 1941 Bears (95)
Wilson,Luck vs. same 8 opponents-NFC WEST Blog-ESPN
Two weeks ago, we provided upon request a look at how Seattle's Russell Wilson and Indianapolis' Andrew Luck fared against seven common opponents. The two impressive rookies have faced eight common opponents now that Seattle has also played the Buffalo Bills. The Seahawks and Colts have no additional common opponents...
Seahawks come out swinging
Earlier in the week I wrote a piece about why the upcoming game against the Buffalo Bills concerned me. The Seahawks wasted no time relieving me of my concerns as they scored on their first 5 possession, before finally punting the ball on their 6th. By that time the Seahawks offense had already scored 31-points.
In-fact, the Seahawks became just the...
It was clear long before last April that the 2012 NFL Draft was going to center around two players. Those two players — quarterbacks, of course — were Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III.
Both players were expected to be franchise-changing talents. Luck was the consensus choice for No. 1, but holding the second pick wasn’t expected to be too shabby, either, with Griffin waiting...
Seahawk’s Offense Starting to Turn Heads
We are 14 games into the regular season and the Seattle Seahawks appear to be peaking at the perfect time. Within a matter of weeks this Seahawks offense, which has been steadily improving throughout the season, has become one of the hot topics across the NFL.
This past Sunday the Seahawks dropped the Bills 50-17 just one week after rolling...
Another blow out
I don’t know who the hell kidnapped my beloved Seahawks and replaced them with football players who can actually put up mass amounts of points, but I love them dearly!
Again, the Seattle Seahawks put up 50 plus points against a lesser opponent this week.
Their two game point total is now 108, which ties the New England Patriots, from earlier this year, as the third...
The Seattle Seahawks are a team to be reckoned with. If last week’s 58-0 drubbing of the Arizona Cardinals was not enough, the Seahawks proved they are not just a flash in the pan with a 50-17 victory over the Buffalo Bills in Toronto. In the NFL’s only regular season game in Canada, Russell Wilson took center stage rushing for three touchdowns and throwing for another. So...
Photo Credit: Rick Bowmer/AP The 2012 NFL Draft was one that was highlighted by two quarterbacks that were both worthy of being selected number 1 overall: Stanford’s Andrew Luck and Baylor’s Robert Griffin III. Well, who would have thought that with two weeks to go in the regular season a guy that was picked 75th overall by the Seattle Seahawks was the favorite to bring home...
