Just thought i should post this. This is my favorite line out of the whole thing.

"if you want to follow a potential Cinderella story, you have to find the dark horse. Look for a team so low, no one can see it."


Edit: by the way, that quote, they aren't really bashing the bills through out. It is a nice read at the end. I just found the quote amazing.

The only parallel between the Bills and Cinderella is their proclivity to lose an article of clothing (a shoe and a jock strap) when it matters most.

Go Bills!!

That was a load of meaningless fluff. I expect better from NFL.com.

Quote

Of course, whether Buffalo takes Nassib, Geno Smith, Matt Barkley or someone else, whoever's under center will certainly be better than Fitzpatrick.
Really? Odds are quite high they won't be better.

Breathtakingly stupid statement in an overall badly written article.   Lori Chase could do a better job in her sleep than this ball wash...

And I immediately thought of Chad Pennington and Eddie Robinson.

Best quote of the article-

"As I argued in January, the Bills should take Nassib with the eighth overall pick, critics be damned."

I think I'm the only poster on this board that agrees.. Nassib to the Bills!!!

Positive slant is nice. But, is the author high? or just a paid off Brandon shill?

Every year we are marked as a potential Cinderella. Every year we fail miserably.

This thread is hilarious for no other reason that to see all the negative ninnies get their panties in a bunch because a national writer dares to write some positives on the Bills and likes the HC hire.

The article was good. It sure as hell beats the same old crap about how we're supposedly going 2-14 next season.

The Commish has probably been reading all the gloom and doom on the message boards, therefore got his minion to write something nice to get the fans feelin better.

So help me here. A guy who is known for being really sharp on Sirius writes a fictious artcle that actually has some hope for the Bills and you bash it?

Wow, there really is no pleasing you guys
