Road-warrior Bills roam from burgh to burgh laying waste

Recommended Posts

Loved this article!

A little love and some funny **** from Sessler over at nfl.com.

Quote

Thank the Maker we have the Bills, pro football's beloved rough-and-tumble band of heavies completely unwilling to play along with the script. These delightful, red-white-and-blue clad footballers have attacked the NFL as would any plugged-in military general worth his salt: house-by-house and town-by-town until the region -- and beyond -- is won.

 

The Bills have opened the campaign by setting their in-state rivals on fire, marching 369 miles by night from Buffalo to East Rutherford, New Jersey, where the sleeping Jets were camped a week ago. Tired by their on-foot journey, Buffalo fell into a 16-0 hole against Sam DarnoldLe'Veon Bell and a Gang Green squad that generated a dash of playoff buzz in August. The Bills would not be held down, though, squelching the Jets in a blaze of holy fire, leaving their AFC East rivals banged, tattered and nursing strange viruses.

 

The Bills walked into MetLife Stadium and torched the place to terra firma, opening 2-0 on the road for the first time in franchise history.

 

Coach Sean McDermott has worked seamlessly with defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier and offensive play-caller Brian Daboll to milk the most out of a roster light on stars but heavy on crush-you-into-salt cohesiveness.

 

Buffalo rolls into autumn Sundays as one of the game's more intriguing, rugged-but-lovable offerings. Unbeaten and untied after a fortnight on the road

 

 

This year's plot feels punched up in all the right ways: Dismissed bumpkins from a distant corner of the Empire State ride into the big city and lay TOTAL WASTE to their tabloid-generating in-state foes, turning the G-Men into g-men and the Jets into a child's paper plane fluttering toward a puddle of godless fire.

 

Today's Bills roam from town to town, barrels blazing, eyes open for the next overstuffed heavy to flatten into a memory. This time around, Week 17 won't do for an endpoint.

 

The anti-hero we need is among us.

It would have been better to get with the program and say out-of-state rivals.  NJ is a state and not just a state of anarchy and dismay.

The Giants have won 8 of their last 34 games.  The Jets 14 of their last 50:  hardly "overstuffed heavies".

The Bills didn't 'march' to Jersey either.:rolleyes:

 

The whole article was kind of tongue in cheek, lighten up Frances.

I would have never known that given the pre-season hype laid at the feet of the Jets with their new 1st year QB guru (ahem, even from within these same boards) going into Week 1, just sayin'. And no matter what, it's still hard to win in the NFL regardless of who you're playing, especially on the road, and by all accounts the Jets have more "stars" on their roster than our lovable Bills. Don't discount what they've done this season to date, unless you also discount the steamroll that the Pats have been on this year so far. :)

The hiring of  Gase was  widely mocked in the press.  The Jets have 3 stars.
