Buffalo Bills: Things We Know This Week



“Fight on my men, Sir Andrew said. A little hurt, but not yet slain. I’ll just lie down and bleed awhile, and then I’ll rise and fight again.”Marv Levy

“I don’t know where I’m going. I don’t know where you are tonight. I don’t know what I’m blowing. And I ain’t feelin’ all too right. But I’m hanging around. Yeah, I’m hanging around. You’re hanging up the phone again. I’m hanging up this town, cause… I want you and
I need you. I’m bleeding and I’ll bleed a little while tonight. Yeah I’ll bleed a little while tonight.”
The Lowest Of The Low

Case of the “Mondays”?

“Uh oh. Sounds like somebody’s got a case of ‘The Mondays’!”Brian, Office Space

That Skinny Vanilla Latte with sugar free vanilla just does not seem worthy of Starbucks’ asking price. Those Cheerios are unduly sodden. The orange juice container in the refrigerator is devoid. Atrocious hair day. Forgot deodorant. Your favorite shirt has a rather large ink stain on the pocket, which clearly identifies you as the guilty partner who left your “CROSS” pen in the shirt pocket. Ok, it was a “BIC”. You did not “MIND-THE-GAP” in the fence as your dog found new freedom in your neighborhood, as being late for work already was simply not enough. Your fantasy football team is up by three points, but your opponent has three players going on Monday Night Football compared to your NONE. When the Buffalo Bills win, everything is great come Monday. These Monday morning obstacles seem hopeless after a Bills loss.

“He’s gonna step on you again, he’s gonna step on you. He’s gonna step on you again, he’s gonna step on you. You’re twistin’ my melon man, you know you talk so hip man. You’re twistin’ my melon man.”Happy Mondays

Those obstacles just do not seem like the sky is falling had your Bills won. That’s the life of a football fan in Buffalo.

“You can’t eat this soup standing up. Your knees buckle.”Elaine Benes

Tua Tagovailoa’s knees buckled as he was briefly knocked out of the game by Matt Milano. Players on both teams were down on their knees, cramping up from the extreme heat in South Beach. It seemed like a player was down every other play.

“Hello, hello! I’m at a place called Vertigo. It’s everything I wish I didn’t know. That you give me something I can feel. Feel.”U2

Ken Dorsey was shown on the CBS broadcast slamming his headset, hat, and tablet into the desk and crumpling papers. No snowflakes here. The printer/fax machine destruction scene in Office Space had nothing on the former Miami Hurricanes quarterback. I have no problem with him showing emotion. He did not punch anyone. The game was over. I want fired up coaches who are extremely competitive. Come on! We lived through Dick Jauron who, on the surface, was lacking competitive emotion. I can safely make the claim that many holes were punched in walls throughout the Queen City on Sunday. Guilty as charged.

“Damn, it feels good to be a gangsta. Feeding the poor and helping out with their bills. Although I was born in Jamaica. Now, I’m in the U.S., making deals. Damn, it feels good to be a gangsta.” – Geto Boys

“Breathing was tough sometimes. We had some really, really long drives.”Josh Allen

I know. I know. Blame the referees. Milano’s dropped interception. “WHAT IF” Gabe Davis makes the catch? The rare miss by T-Bass. The Ball that was never spiked. Any close games you lose have key moments that could have totally changed the rest of the game. It got crazy with the goal line stand as well as the memorable Butt-Punt Safety.

“You try to do your best with the resources you have.”Sean McDermott

With the injury depleted defense and offensive line as well as players dropping like flies in the Tatooine-like heat, the Buffalo Bills still almost won the game. This game does not define the season.

“I don’t like sand. It’s coarse and rough and irritating… and it gets everywhere. Not like here. Here everything is soft and smooth.”Anakin Skywalker

The team certainly does not resemble the same team with so many starters out. No team can sustain the dominant level the Buffalo Bills were at with so many key players out. Heck, totally healthy teams can not dominate at the level Buffalo was the first two weeks of the season. Judging by the statistics, you would never guess Miami was even in the game. Never would you imagine Miami got the “W”. Buffalo lost the game. Even with the injuries and heat, the Bills were still good enough to win the game. Josh Allen threw for 400 yards and was, again, the team’s leading rusher. They certainly were not squished by the fish.

Things we know about the Buffalo Bills this week

Josh Allen played down the soreness in his right throwing hand. The minor injury may not even be worthy of an injury status for the week. Josh Allen is tough. DEADASS TOUGH. Just breathe.

Josh Allen earned a nomination for this week’s FedEx Air NFL Player of the Week Award.

Christian Benford broke his hand, requiring immediate surgery, which will sideline him for a couple of weeks.

Tommy Doyle tore his ACL, which will cause him to miss the rest of the season.

Ryan Bates finds himself in concussion protocol.

Jake Kumerow suffered a high ankle sprain, which landed him in the “week-to-week” category.

Ed Oliver, Jordan Phillips, and Jordan Poyer are still questionable for Sunday’s game against Baltimore.

I am semi-retired leaving my enjoyable 24 year management career due to multiple health issues. My dad retired from The Buffalo News after 49 years. I have been an avid fan for quite some time. Got that Marv Levy Fight Song In My Head for absolutely no reason.
