Throw Back Thursday: Bills-Lions 2014

Recommended Posts

AKA the laser pointer game 

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.cbsnews.com/amp/news/nfl-investigates-laser-pointer-allegedly-used-on-kyle-orton-during-bills-lions-game/

 

it was orton’s first game after EJ was benched. After throwing a pick six, he rebounded to win the game. Lions blew a 14 point lead. Watkins had a sick catch. Lions kicker missed 3 FGs. Dareus had 3 sacks. And who could forget this moment?!

I think Goodwin had an awesome catch on the sideline that game, and Sammy's tip-to-himself catch was great. This and the Vikings game with the 4th and 20sumthin were my favorite Orton moments.

Man, isn't Kyle Orton like that kind of pleasing weird anomaly in Bills history?

 

OK that he was gone, but I really could have lived with another year out of him, and he finishes with a winning record (7-5).

 

It is a little like Larry Centers.  I loved Larry Centers career, glad he came here, and he was successful (80 grabs one year), but on a poor team, but before we knew it he was gone.

Orton looked better than he was because he followed EJ. Still, he was pretty accurate.

And the yards were seemingly there.

 

the insanity it would be around here if we had a pretty good line, pretty good rb, pretty good QB, and pretty good receivers all in one season.

The 2014 bills team was the best Bills team of the drought. I loved Orton. If EJ didn’t ruin our season in Houston, we would have made the playoffs. The 14 team was better then the 17 team. The most like modern day football we have played post Kelly.

The Raiders game that year absolutely crushed me. They went from looking great beating the packers and being in playoff contention to going to the 2-win raiders and laying an egg. I think Andre Holmes might have caught a big pass in that game for Oakland?

 

I still think the Denver game was the turning point of that season :angry:

Well now I feel old.  Why do the years pass soo quickly when you have kids?  I thought this was like 2 or 3 years ago.

 

The good news is I remember this game so I'm not that old yet.

Orton started off pretty damn solid.

 

The hits piled up and he remembered why he retired and his play followed suit.

 

He stopped caring.

We won two games in Detroit that year.

You ok? This was a weird response for a simple fact

It was a poor attempt at humor.  Sorry.
