Personally I do not know how to feel after today. It's easy to throw EJ under the bus, but seriously being rusty and coming off an injury, was this 'make or break' game really the best time for him to return? I personally thought Thad should have started until at least bye week time, but that is just me.
A few here are now throwing the defense under the bus. Really? Did you not see 8 consecutive punts and then the INT by the offense? Or was I watching a different game? The offense hung them out to dry. They didn't do GREAT, but they aren't as horrible as some have made them out to be.
The question I have for people is? Did anyone REALLY expect a playoff push this year? I mean REALLY? Yes it was possible, but we have too many inexperienced players on this team for now, and games like KC and this one proved it. The loss of Woods today was killer, was he NOT EJ's best target?
I am not saying 'EJ for president' but I am not willing to just flat out call him a bust yet. I am not a homer, and I am not in the 'doom and gloom' crowd, I am a guy stuck in the middle somewhere, Although for a few minutes today, I almost joined the latter with a pitchfork ready. Yes Hackett is making playcall mistakes, yes EJ is raw and not growing as fast as a Luck, RG3 or Wilson. But he has had flashes, not in this game, but they have been there.
Let's calm down people, there is a reason Thurman Thomas said this, 'People come up here in these jackets and say they have had the best fans cheering for them, I am here today to tell you that is HOGWASH, NO ONE is like MY fans, Bills fans.' We have thick skin and have weathered many a storm, This too shall pass. We WILL make it back into relevancy.
What is the point of this? I don't know, just putting my feelings out there, I have come here a few times and shoved my foot in my mouth by being hasty and called out the 'Doom and Gloom' crowd as I call them, I defended Fitz over and over until finally I saw what everyone else did, I am passionate, I am a Bills fan. Even with these 14 years, I wouldn't trade them for the world. Sorry if I wasted your time, just needed to vent without pissing anyone off, and throw the love of my life (besides my family) under the bus, and who is the love I just mentioned? The Bills. I can't help it.
