Does any part of you miss the losing?


Recommended Posts

Before you immediately jump to answer "NO", realize that this question does not mean that you don't like winning.


I enjoy the Bills recent success and I root for a championship trophy. I have a man crush on Josh Allen that my colleagues find odd. That being said, part of me misses the drama of Flutie v Johnson, Bledsoe v Losman, the Fitzpatrick upward trajectory followed by the downward trajectory, top 10 pick draft talk, checking the playoff tiebreakers to find a 1 in 1,000 chance of making the tournament, etc. I wonder if the large swings in outcomes of the past created a dopamine response in my brain.


Does anyone else feel this way? Or perhaps I am in a party of one?

I miss the honesty of the sincere fan versus many of the Johnny come latelys and bandwagon bunch.

I am excited to hear about the distinction.  How can you quantify the bandwagon bunch?  That's my first question.  I'm a fossil now, at 51, and I've been watching the team since diapers.  I guess that I'll be watching the team til my next round of diapers.  Next year.

I would say I miss the hope aspect of a season you have no idea who might step up vs the expectations now. 
I love the underdog role. It’s not as fun for me when Buffalo is the hands down favorite. But I absolutely am enjoying the ride and it’s been extremely fun watching them build this team.

Definitely miss the whiner line and the super hot takes following a bad loss, but other than that, absolutely not. After 17 years of stress and misery and ptsd, we deserve this 

Wgr plays the pats “whiner line” now compiled from angry weei callers, which is hysterical
