Buffalo Bills Revenge Tour 2019-2020

Recommended Posts

I was going through our schedule and something jumped out at me. This season has a chance to be the ultimate 80's-90's revenge tour for the Buffalo Bills organization. It's a good time to have one of the best D's in the league. I hope the Offense can catch up because i'd like to get the clean sweep. 

 

I know there are a few teams that we can make cases for that aren't on it (Kansas City for beating us to go to the first Super Bowl), and a few that are on the schedule, but this revenge tour is leaning a bit late 80's - 90's. I almost threw in the Steelers because of the notorious backup game, but i was looking for heavier hitting events. 

 

I've left off the division rivals because, well, outside of the 90's rivalry with the Dolphins, everything's mostly been one sided by one team or the other. 

 

Giants:  1991 (First Super Bowl)  - check

 

Bengals:  1989 (Beat us in the AFC Championship) - check 

 

Titans 1999 (technically 2000, but close enough, Music City miracle) - check 

 

Redskins:  1992 (Second Super Bowl) 

 

Cowboys: 1993 & 1994 (Third & Fourth Super Bowl) 

 

 

Now i'm not saying that this means we're going to the super bowl or anything like that, but if we can get the clean sweep of these teams in one season, that could be pretty satisfying. Also, i guess i wouldn't be opposed to a long run into the playoffs.

It’s an interesting observation, but unfortunately a regular season win in 2019 does nothing to lessen the blow of losing those playoff games.

The blows already been dealt. Nothing you can do about that. What you can do is punish them with your D for four quarters. 

 

Time has already lessened the blow. Now i just want to beat 'em up.

I can't believe there hasn't been more discussion of Mariota's illegal forward pass last week. Talk about karma! Sure, it wasn't EXACTLY the same, but it was a pretty darn similar scenario.

 

I love that this year feels like an "Exorcising the Demons" tour. We may not win 'em all, but the match-ups sure feel like an opportunity to break a few curses (and yes, I realize "curses" are just a bunch of voodoo hocus-pokus mumbojumbo...)

Walks into the room, quietly taps Bobby Hooks on the shoulder and whispers in his ear, “The Bills defeated the entire NFC East in 1991.”

Not a particularly great harbinger of things to come perhaps.

Cool observation, but I’m over the idea of losing to all those NFC EAST teams. The team I want to beat in 2019 is located in Foxboro.

Meh... I'm over them. I've accepted they're the class of the East for now. We punished them for years, they're now punishing us for years. We've never been good together. Doesn't even feel like a rivalry to me. Just a big brother beating up his younger brother on a national stage occasionally.

It is kind of interesting especially with the 100th season and them looking back at all these moments with these games.

Beating these guys in the regular season is not really revenge....this is like someone murduers your family member so you call them a name as "revenge"

Turns to Nanker, says "That was before mostly all of those events even happened. Not sure how that correlates." Then sweeps his leg Johnny Lawrence style!

I get that humans naturally like to pull things apart, etc... but since Aaron Hernandez has already proven you're not allowed to murder back, beating them in a football game will just have to do. 

 

Fun response though.

Please may we also revenge 2018 as I am looking to lay a thumpin' on the Ravens.

 

I'd love to get a piece of the Chargers, too, but that doesn't look like it is going to happen regular or post season.

What year is it again?  Some of the players on this team were infants when there games occurred

What does that have to do with the price of tea in China? 

 

The players are the Buffalo Bills. Do you follow the players or the team? I don't know about you but as soon as a player signs somewhere else they're dead to me. The charging (and sometimes standing) Buffalo remembers all.

All I care about is the next game

 

I HATE that we are 15 point favorites against Miami.....

Can you start a thread about how you only care about the next game so that i can come in all myopic like and say i only care about getting revenge on the GBTRC's? 

 

I do appreciate all of the hard work you're putting in focusing on the next team, i know it'll pay off in spades come game time. You know, because what we fans think about during the week affects games.

It could have been considered Karma if they messed up the call on the field in the Bills favor, but they got it correct.

Oh god, gag me with that tired ol' Stripes reference. As far as 80's comedies go that's 99 cent clearance bin fodder. You need to step your game up. 

 

Also, "thank you very little."
