Players who caused us heartbreak and pain, but never felt hate
Scott Norwood: I feel the fan base never really hated the guy after the miss, but...I was 8 when it happened.
Ronnie Harmon: I'll never forget the drop, but again...I didn't hate him
Henry Jones: He was a great Ssfety for us, but I will always remember him getting called for Pass Interference on a Hail Mary versus the Patriots. It was just that one mistake he made, and a call that never happens...but imagine if Whitner would have done it.
Players who are hated now, whether earned or just circumstance of the drought
Leodis McKelvin: Yeah, he can't cover. He also cost us that Patriots game...he may be the most hated Bill right now.
Donte Whitner: Do we need to rehash all the reasons we dislike him. Probably not.
Chris Kelsay: I have never really minded him, but I know he is the site's whipping boy half the time
Trent Edwards: Never has a Bills QB been more infuriating. Fall in love with him, get off to the hot start, and then become the most fearful QB I have ever seen. I'm not sure who messed him up more to this point, Adrian Wilson or Dick Jauron
JP Losman: Man, I had high hopes....and then they all came crashing down harder than a wave on the beach...where he just should have stayed
My most hated Bill
Lonnie Johnson. Yes, I could have picked the entire special teams unit vs the Titans, but Lonnie Johnson is it for me. Some of you may not even remember him. He was a second round pick from Florida State. He was supposed to be the athletic TE of the future. He did nothing. He dropped everything, he missed blocks. He held constantly. Why is he my most hated Bill? Let me recap for you in one play.
The Bills were getting spanked in Green Bay. We were down big. Out of nowhere, we ran a fake punt. We passed to Lonnie Johnson. He made the catch, suprisingly, and then took off down the middle of the field. He looks behind him, and never even thinks about the return man...who just happened to be Darren Sharper, the future All-Pro, as a rookie. Sharper absolutely levels Lonnie, who never saw the hit coming, and fumbles. I actually cheered. And laughed. It was the perfect Lonnie play. And I believe he was gone at the end of the season. It's the last play I remember him making.
I'm curious to see who my fellow Rumblers have issue with as a Bills player.
