It's never a surprise but my brain can't process it all the same, how much professional football coaches are goddamned cowards. Unreal decision-making for hire, the prerequisite for being a coach in this league appears to be a pleasant enough jaw line under a curved-brim hat and/or visor. It certainly isn't a requirement that a coach be competent. We Bills fans know that as well as anyone.
Never change, New York Jets. Never ever change.
Anyway, yeah, so I watched. What of it. Last minute invite to watch multiple games at the bar - I am generally incapable of making rational decisions and you aren't clever noticing how much of a hypocrite I am. Mazel tov. That shit was always happening. I literally cannot resist Week 1 and my efforts at staging some sort of ceremonial cleansing of my football-liking soul are always some degree of mirage. This sport, and to a larger extent me, are really, really dumb..
Tyrod played ok, made some reasonable throws; Shady was solid, served as the workhorse McDermott et al. will require him to be this season; Jordan Matthews has some wheels, so that's nice; and the defense shut down a team specifically manufactured to be a dreadful, dry and cracking squeegee awash in caked-on failure. The Bills avoided being complete embarrassments, at least for the moment. Hurrah.
Onto the next as we await, not a drop of the other shoe per se, but simply the way things are. Perpetual shoe-dropping, I suppose.
Let's Go Buffalo.
