Why I hate being a Bills fan

I should have titled this "one of the many reasons I hate being a Bills fan".  But here goes.  I can't stop thinking about what I want the Bills to do with the #3 pick.  I've grown more and more convinced that we should take Cam Newton with that pick.  But here is where I hate being a Bills fan.  I have no confidence that we'll make the right decision with this pick. 

I just have the feeling that if we pass on Newton that he'll end up being an elite QB and we'll be second guessing OBD for the next 10 years.  But conversely, I have the feeling that if we draft Newton, he'll end up flopping and we'll be second guessing OBD for the next 10 years.

Now, I should say that I do have faith in Nix's scouting ability.  So I am not bashing him and I know he deserves the benefit of the doubt for now.  But being a Bills fan for 30+ years has left me so cynical that I just know we are going to screw this up. 

Today, I had this thought.  I actually hope Newton gets picked 1st or 2nd so I don't have to worry about second guessing the pick.  How sad is that?  I want a franchise QB so bad, but I am hoping the guy that I actually think could be that franchise QB gets picked before we do. 

This isn't a thread to discuss who we should select at #3.  This is a thread for me to vent because it isn't fair that I have to feel this way.  I just hope Nix/Whaley/Gailey can turn this around and I can stop having this pessimistic view on our team.


Just another great fan opinion shared on the pages of BuffaloRumblings.com.
