There is no need to beat around the bush here (I am not talking to you yet, Reggie). The Bills 37-31 loss to the Patriots this past week really hurts. Fred Jackson is out with a concussion. Devon McCourty intercepted Ryan Fitzpatrick with 23 seconds left. For some die hard Bills fans, it was the type of game ending that made you want to slurp Everclear from a crazy straw.
THE COLD HARD STATS
Lets face the cold, hard truth. Tom Brady may go home to Gisele Bundchen wearing Stetson cologne, but Ryan Fitzpatrick smelled a lot prettier Sunday. Fitzpatrick put up one of the best games of his career, going 27 for 40, a total of 337 yards and two touchdowns.
Yes, the Bills’ 14 penalties shot the team in the foot, but a few pass interference calls were iffy, the balls blatantly uncatchable. I have flung apple cores toward the trash can, the refrigerator interfering with it that have been more “catchable.”
Yet, it is better to let bygones be bygones and move forward, which leaves me with a bone to pick. The topic of the week belongs to Dolphin’s running back Reggie Bush.
Bush, benched last Sunday after coughing up the ball against the Titans, made a derogatory crack about Buffalo women during an interview with “The Paul and Young Ron Show,” as stated on www.wivb.com. It all started with a comment about Buffalo’s “unusual” 30 to 40 degree weather for the Bills and Dolphins match up this Thursday. Ahem… not so “unusual” weather for people who actually live here. Last November, my wheels were my feet, as I walked almost everywhere in 60 degree weather.
Bush responded “That’s warm for Buffalo,” and the host replied “That’s good football weather. Women will be out there topless in that weather.”
“You don’t want that,” said one of the radio people.
“No, God, no.” said the host.
Reggie Bush joined the band wagon and said, “Not Buffalo women.”
To Mr. Bush, I’m from Buffalo pal and I take offense to your comment. It may be time to invest in some glasses or change your prescription. To the Buffalo Bills, are you going to defend the honor of Buffalo women? My girlfriend and I had a clear view of the Buffalo Jills. I will go out on a limb here by saying that many people find them attractive, with or without a top.
I would list about 100 things that I love about my girlfriend, but since she is not from Buffalo, it does not really prove my point. If I were to name one, I would definitely include her emerald eyes.
BATTLE OF THE RYANS
This week’s game is not only a MUST win for the 3-6 Bills. Without a win, our playoff hopes will swirl down the drain faster than Archie Bunker can flush our season toilet. Needless to say, a Bills victory will not be easy.
The Dolphins rookie QB Ryan Tannehill has something to prove, throwing three picks against the Titans this past Sunday. You know he wants to save some face.
Ryan Fitzpatrick wants to prove that he can wrap one up, sealing a game ending win for his team. So besides that. . .oh. . .mmm… Sorry. . . I was just distracted by a cute Buffalo woman in a skirt. So. . . here’s to squishing the fish and grinding an ax with Reggie Bush. Buffalo Bills, please defend female honor.
