So I went to Burger King last night and ordered dinner. I said into the intercom: Can I please have a Number 1 Super Sized, a Number 2 with Chicken Nuggets and a Number 5 with dipping sauce.
After I ordered and at my 3 meals by myself (I have no friends) in my car watching random people enjoy their day with people that like to hang out with them I thought about how my fast food order closely resembled how Buddy Nix has built the defense.
I asked for a number 1 super sized because of Super Mario and the fact that we have 5 first rounders on our defense with 4 of them starting. A good defense typically has a lot of 1st round talent and the Bills certainly have that talent with Mario Williams, Marcell Dareus, Nick Barnett, Stephon Gilmore and Leodis McKelvin.
I wanted the number 2 with Chicken Nuggets because The Byrd Is The Word, naturally. But when you get chicken nuggets you don't get one, you get plenty of other nuggets. Along with Jarius Byrd you get Chris Kelsay, Dwan Edwards, Aaron Williams and Bryan Scott.
I can't resist number 5's from Burger King. If you've ever eaten Burger King Meatballs you know what I mean. When you order a number 5 you don't just get 1 Meatball do you? Nope, Meatballs come in a package with other Meatballs. Unfortunately Burger King only gives you 1 other Meatball named Mark Anderson (i'm lobbying for more than 2 meatballs in my number 5 with sauce, waiting for a response from BK).
So as you can see my Burger King order closely resembles how Buddy has built this defense. 5 first round draft picks, 5 2nd round draft picks and 2 fifth round draft picks make up the bulk of our defense. When I see that many first and second round draft picks on a defense it makes me a happy Rumbler.
Too bad I wasn't a little more hungry, I could have ordered a number 3 (Sheppard), 4 (McGee, Searcy, Rogers) or 6 (Moats) as well. Or I could have picked off of the dollar menu (S. Johnson, George Wilson) for some dollar items which represent great value at a good cost. But let's not get crazy here, a man can only eat so much.
