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.
