Throughout the day, Marshawn Lynch looked like he wished he was in his car and Jauron was a pedestrian. Jauron appears most content when he's losing because it makes the other team happy.

...Jesus, those memories and some names are just putrid...NINE false start penalties......sounds like our current rash of illegal formation penalties........Dopey Dickie Jauron......Kivica Mitchell.....Marv rushed to sign him at 12:01AM start to FA and there was not one other damn team in line.....he was a gem.......speaking of UGLY, the '87 strike game, a barn burning OT thriller, 6-3 was another beauty.......

 

1987 Buffalo Bills – Teamsters, Turmoil and a Trade

by Bill Choinski 

 

"With the hopes for any shot at the post season on the line, the locked out players became fans and spectators themselves, rooting on the Counterfeit Bills (hmmm...2018 nickname for our offense??) in their upcoming battle against Lawrence Taylor and the New York Giants. In a comical mistake filled game that featured 9 turnovers (7 by the Bills) 258 yards in penalties, and 5 missed field goals, Buffalo managed a 6-3 overtime win. The aptly named Tim Schlopy won the game with a 27 yard FG with 19 seconds left in OT. The Counterfeit Bills notched their only win, pushing the Bills record to 2-3 and keeping them in the race."

1968, 1971, 1976, 1977, 1984, 1985 google these seasons to see what bad and pain really is!

- 1968 we ran Joel Collier, a defensive master mind out of town after a 48 - 6 loss at the Rock Pile and got Harvey Johnson; it got worse.

- 1971 we ran John Rauch out of town and it got worse.

- 1976/1977 we got Jim Ringo, GB Packer all time great, it got bad, real bad

- 1984/1985 real real bad

1968, 1984, 1985 really bad QB play!

We are not to these levels yet...

I think Joe Dufek was the winning QB

This actually cheers me up! That's one of the great things about being a lifer Bills fan, we can always hop in the way back, or not-so-way-back machine, and find stats to comfort us that it could always be just a little bit worse than it is right now! I'm still holding on to my 90's Bills memories to stay afloat...

Game didn't actually go to OT. Parrish muffed a punt inside our own 20 yard line with under 2 minutes left and Cleveland ran the clock down and kicked a FG with seconds remaining. Either way, a sad sad sad game.

Everyone likes to joke about this game in particular, and of course, it was a real ***** show.

 

But in truth, it was just one of many similar stink fests we have put on the field over the years.

 

The fact that it involved the Browns is some type of tragic irony.  2 cities and organizations that are like twins.

Ha, my memory is that game was illogically one of the rare games on in the NYC market (family from Buffalo, I grew up in NYC) and I remember watching it in my parents basement on an old Trinitron. Don't recall much about it except that it was ugly.

 

(edit: realized of course it was on -- giants -- i'm an idiot sometimes)

Yup. thats when he was "good"

 

 

Have I mentioned Andersons stat line?   Maybe once or 10 times?    He was 2-17 for 23 yards in 4 quarters of football that day..............the worst QB performance in the history of the stadium.......which of course "is saying something".

 

And now the Bills starting QB choice is the "washed up" version of him or the guy who played the worst half of QB in the NFL since the merger.

It wasn't a surprise that this was a horrible game.

 

There were a few people who thought "these are the kind of games that people sleep on but become memorable games".

 

Nope.

 

I jumped to the conclusion that it might be the worst game in NFL history and drove home before kickoff after a nice 4 hour tailgate.

 

Never done it before or since.........but never had a worse feeling about a game.

 

We have 6 frickin home games left......good lawd we could have some doozies if Anderson and Nate gotta' play.

I was at that game! What I remember most was getting up to leave after the end. As I slowly walked behind the crowd leaving the stands I passed a guy that was still seated on the end of a row. A total stranger! We looked at each other and at exactly the same time we both shook our heads in total disgust at what we had just witnessed. At the sick joke of a team that we were!

 

At least things aren’t that bad!!

Derek Anderson was the qb for the browns in a 10-6 season. Considering what the Browns have been for the last 20 years, I’d say that’s pretty impressive
