Anybody remember the Bills being a 17 point underdog during the Wilson era?

Recommended Posts

You realize most of the drought was under Wilson's reign, right?  like that 3-13 season?

Every time they played New England with Brady?

 

On a serious note, im sure they were 17 point dogs at least a few times against the Patriots

I remember back about 10 years ago (I think 2018) they were 17 pt underdogs against the Packers, or maybe it was the Vikings, one week. Man,  that seems like ancient history now with two superbowl rings. Thank god the Bills picked Allen in that one draft. Really,  who would have predicted he'd be in the Brady/Montana conversation?? Go Bills!

I make the same mistakes.  It was 2010 and the Packers were favored by 12.5.

Let's see, many games in 1968, 1971, 1976, 1977, 1984, 1985; not sure about the post Butler era!

Even during those lean years we didn't see many lines as lopsided as this one.  I believe I read the last time we were 17 point dogs was 2007 against New England.  Simply put, spreads like these are not very common in the NFL.  This team is pretty special.

This is the worst level of talent since 2-14 days,  only a matter of time before Beane is fired.  I don't blame Sean ,  not many coaches are going to win with the garbage he has been given. The guy is a complete loser and makes Whaley look like a genius

Anyone remember our #1 WR having the speed and strength of a three toed sloth?

At least Ralph was endearing. In a crotchety, stubborn way. He had conviction, and stood up for the little guy.

 

New guy seems to be a bumbling in over his head type, that just wants to be a yes man to the modern NFL and pocket his cash.

The "showcase Marshawn Lynch game" with Lynch, Fred, Spiller all on the roster.  Gave him the ball most of the first half.  Should have known to keep the future hall of famer the way he was gaining yards all in his own as he always did.

If I remember correctly the 07 Pats was like 19 points in Foxborough (the year they went 18-1)

 

But I sense the tone of the thread is sardonic, so I will interject that this is the first honest-to-goodness tear down and rebuild we've had in recent past. And we are right in the thick of it.

You want paradise.  But someday you'll sacrifice; I know.  I've seen it before - it happens all the time.

 

Don't close the door.  Don't leave the world behind, my friend.

That's true.  After going back and looking at that season, not many of those games were "blowouts".

Pretty much every game from around '68-'70.

Just being a pain is what you're doing.  Go look at your other foolish post about receivers yesterday for my comment.
