Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson wonders why a veteran receiver that’s more experienced wasn’t targeted at the end of this past Sunday’s game against the Patriots. Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick targeted wide receiver T.J. Graham and ended up throwing an interception that ended the game. “I don’t think it was the wrong play. But just the whole thing leading up to it,” Johnson said, per the Associated Press. “We had people in positions where maybe they shouldn’t have been. So who knows what would’ve happened if it was Donald, me or Scott there. So it’s no blame on T.J. at all, because he’s never run that route in practice or in a game.” It would also help if the Bills actually had a franchise quarterback.  Fitzpatrick just isn’t cutting it.   var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })(); sr_adspace_id = 1000005525107; sr_adspace_width = 300; sr_adspace_height = 250; sr_ad_new_window = true; sr_adspace_type = "graphic";

Predator Strikes Again

Brandon "Predator" Spikes certainly isn't one of the most liked players on the field when it comes to game time. This past Sunday against the Bills, Spikes had a helmet-to-helmet hit on quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick that led to a roughing the passer call and a few choice words from Fitzpatrick during and after the game. I think Spikes is an emotional player, I think...

Bills Waste Golden Opportunity In Foxboro

It was all set up perfectly. After a huge defensive stop held the Patiots to only a field goal, the Bills were about to get the ball back trailing by only six points, with a chance to win the game.

Kneel before Necci: Bills/Pats Recap

The Bills and the Patriots played an NFL Game that ended in heartache & despair.   My thoughts:   MVP: Ryan Fitzpatrick. We, myself leading the parade, like to bash Fitz. The weak arm, the inability to throw it deep, the inaccuracy, and the ever looming "Fitz Pick" that kills this team like it did yesterday. But today, Ryan Fitzpatrick played probably...
