Instant Thoughts: Bills Still Not Good EnoughNovember 7th, 2010 at 5:13 pm by Paul Peck under 4 Warn Weather
Competetive, yes. Good enough to win, no. For the third straight week, the Bills played tough and had a legit chance at their first win. For the third straight week, they showed why they’re a winless team. You can’t keep making the same crucial mistakes and expect to win close games. I put most of the blame on Ryan Fitzpatrick. Just like his gaffes from the Chiefs game, his mistakes in this one cost Buffalo a chance to win. The interception late on a deep ball intended for Stevie Johnson was an underthrown pass. If Fitzpatrick puts more air on it, its a touchdown. Instead, Tim Jennings runs underneath it and his return to the 23 sets up the Bears winning TD. It was a good call, and one that Chan Gailey should expect an NFL quarterback to make. I know Fitz has breathed life into the offense, but what has it gotten you?
*The Bears were the most sacked team in the NFL. Jay Cutler had been nailed 27 times. How many today? Just one by the Bills defense.
