:: JP Losman continues to show that he's not just a guy with promise, but that he's growing. Let's hope this continues.
:: The Bills' O-line continues to be less-than-stellar at getting defenders off the line of scrimmage, but they seem to be OK at pass protection. Strange.
:: At the time, I had no problem with the Bills letting Pat Williams go. I figured that at his age, the downside to giving him a big contract was too big. I now admit that I was full of bird poop on that point.
:: I hate rooting against the Vikings, and I only do so when they play the Bills. They're my favorite NFC team.
:: The TV announcers for yesterday's game were a disaster. We're talking Joe Theissman-level stupidity here. A couple of relevant examples:
:: After that short kickoff that the Bills recovered before being flagged for the phantom "interference with the free catch" call, one of the announcers said, "The Vikings are lucky that [the Bill who recovered] didn't get up and keep running with that ball!" Except for the fact that the kicking team cannot advance a kickoff. Everybody knows that, I thought.
:: Referring to Andre Reed, who was inducted onto the Bills' Wall of Fame yesterday: "Andre Reed is one of the most prolific receivers in Bills history!" Ummmm...no, Andre Reed is the most prolific receiver in Bills history. Jee-bus.
:: Toward the end of the game, inside three minutes bure before the Vikes got the ball back this exchange took place:
ANNOUNCER 1: The Vikings still get the two-minute warning, and they have all of their timeouts.
ANNOUNCER 2: Yes, and the Vikes can still stop the clock!
Those guys were awful.
Next up for the Bills: on the road at Chicago. Maybe the Bears fall victim to a "trap" game, having blown out the defending NFC champs on national television. We'll see.
