I was thinking about the nightmare possibility of the Bills bringing Dave Wannstache back for another year in the wake of a historically bad defensive season put on display by our supposed revamped D, so I decided to go check out ESPN's Total QBR rankings to see the top statistical performances this season. Things went something how I expected...........more after the jump.
This past Sunday, Russell Wilson decided to treat the bi-partisan Toronto crowd to a clinic, free of charge. He sliced and diced the Bills sieve defense with his arm and legs, finishing with a season best 99.3 Total QBR for the game. It truly was a thing of beauty, as he rushed for as many touchdowns as times the Bills decided to pass on him in the 2012 NFL Draft.
Coming in as the 2nd best Total QBR performance of the season is now defunct starter Alex Smith, who in week 5 posted a 93.2 figure. If you think getting roasted by a quarterback who up until last year, was unanimously viewed as an abject failure and career bust, it only gets worse.
Coming in as the 8th best performance of the 2012 season, is none other than soon to be career 3rd stringer Mark Sanchez, who boasted a 97.1 Total QBR rating week 1 against our Bills. It's amazing to me that pretty much every other NFL defense in the league can make Sanchez look like 1st round bust that he is, yet when the Bills take the field, he morphs into the second coming of Broadway Joe. Dave Wannstedt everyone!
So to recap, the Bills have allowed the 1st, 2nd, and 8th best statistical performances this season by NFL QB's, a dubious distinction that just made me stop typing and throw-up in the garbage can next to my desk. The Bills need to clean house, and I'm not just talking about Wanny. Chan needs to go for sure, as I'm pretty much convinced at this point he couldn't coach his way out of a wet paper bag. After Buddy failed to draft Russell Wilson last year, I'm pretty much done with him too. We got everything we deserved last Sunday, and I was actually loving how they poured it on us. Embarrassment leads to change, and the only way we get these clowns out of here is for that to continue, plus we'll get a better draft pick to boot. I'm hoping the Dolphins and Jets pistol whip us these last 2 weeks, because I don't think Chan and Co can survive too many more smoke shows.
And just in case you were curious, since the QBR stat came to be back in 2008, the Bills are on the wrong side of the all-time number 3,4, and 5 performances, putting yet another feather in our cap of ineptness.
