At the beginning of May MattRichWarren presented us with his Buffalo Bills 2000s All-Decade Team series. And for about a month we voted on a series of poles to determine who was worthy of being on that team. But more often than not we also ended up complaining over
the limited sometimes horrible talent that we had to pick from for any given position. So it was about at the TE position that I thought "hey why don't we also vote on the worst players that played for this team over the last decade?" And so here we are.
Now just like MattRichWarren's series I have a few criteria for players to be eligible for this team. They had to have played in at least a full season's worth of games in this decade to be eligible. Starting is not requirement, but you do have to have played significant amounts of snaps in those games. That means that, for example, the Bills 3rd receiver might make the list, but a 4th or 5th stringer wont be considered. That means that we wont end up voting for 7th rounders that ended up playing 2 snaps. These are going to be real players that played real roles on this team over the last ten years. And just because a player ended up on the All-Decade team does not mean that you can't also be on the worst-decade team.
Ok with Worst Front Office Member out of the way it's time to go on with Most Hated Bills Player of the decade. Now before i actually make this post I have to give credit to Dr. Brackish Okun for coming up with the idea for this one (the e-mail system works people!).
Now I have to make this clear, this is not the Worst Bills Player of the decade (that will be coming up soon), but the most HATED Bills player. Here's the rare occasion where a player's skill level has very little to do with his selection, this should only rest on the person's actions on, and off the field. So here's the list of player that we just love to hate!
Robosack! This guy had a huge salary, took playing time away from a Pro-Bowl QB, and just plain STUNK. The Bills' move from perennial powerhouse to one of the worst teams in the league happened while he was the starter for the Bills. Coincidence? I think not.
In this case, what he did on the field has everything to do with him being on the list. One of the worst draft picks ever. I'm not sure who to blame though, Donahoe for drafting him, or Williams for never putting in the effort that is needed at the NFL level.
This douche bag demanded a trade not because the team was bad, but because "there's nothing to do in Buffalo and the women are ugly." Good job there Willis, not only do you piss off your team mates, but you guarantee that an entire fan base hates you. Oh and good job on forgetting your talent and career in Buffalo too! Great idea!
The nickname Loseman was given for a reason. This guy just sucked. He put this team back many years at QB. He lost games for us with bad decisions and just plain stupid moves. The fact that he lot his starting job to a rookie third rounder is even worst. Loseman just plain sucked.
A team signs you when you go undrafted, work hard on you, train you, and make you one of the best left tackles in the game. That same team also gave you a very large contract extension before you even played a starting snap in the NFL. How do you show your appreciation? By holding out twice, then demanding to either be the highest paid offensive lineman in league history or to be traded on the same year that you let 13 sacks by you. Have fun in Philly Jason, you deserve that city almost as much as they deserve you!
There are other guys that I could have put on this list, but none of them even come close to shoring up the hated spew that these guys can. On the bright side this might be the best opportunity for you guys to vent unrelenting hateful rants on these players, and I'm looking forward to reading all of them!
