    I read these threads and laugh at how the same fans who smugly condemn the Cryboys and the Seahawk fans who whine about SB XL, can jump on the complain train with both feet and snivel with the best of them.

    When you get a bad deal, you're a crybaby. When I get a bad deal, I'm the victim of the crime of the century.

    The Bills played a later MNF game and had to travel across country.

    People are quoting “3 games in 12 days” like it’s some kind of insurmountable task. It happens all the time. As far as playing a team coming off a bye week, another thing that happens all the time.
    We got screwed with our schedule being disrupted several times over a few days and a lack of normal practices. The league ****ed up bad.

    I quoted the wrong post. I was referring to Haden being in concussion protocol on a short week. Every day helps to get him cleared.
    As far as how ever many games played in how ever many days and the other setbacks this season, I've taken Tomlin's mantra...

    But what is quickly forgotten as well is the time they didn't spend preparing because of the shenanigans and Tomlin said take the day, and the next day, come in tomorrow but late like 3 or so. He judged that the rest was more important and sadly that wasn't quite the case.

    The book of Jeff chapter 2 verse 1, "it will all buff out."


    My younger brothers holy book, we think it can fill the void for scientologists and stoners alike.

    We do not have the coaching to make a deep playoff run. Talent, yes.

    That’s partially what my point has been. Three games in 12 days on its own it’s pretty irrelevant. The BS that went on during those 12 days is the issue.

    The uncertainty of when and who we were playing is what really messed us up

    So they received 3 game checks in 12 days, some like bens deal paid them a million a game, this while millions of people are out of work and waiting for hours in drive through food lines because they cant afford to buy groceries and facing eviction notices that keep them up all night from the stress of not knowing how they and their kids will survive this pandemic, no I dont have any sympathy for these players making big bucks for playing a few games close together and they have had more time off this year than anytime before, so boo hoo, deal with it and quit whining about it.......

    If I’m being very honest, the 3 games in 12 days vs a team coming off a mini-bye wasn’t my end all be all. I’m more frustrated by the fact that we have 1rst ‘n goal inside the 1 yd line and we never run a QB sneak ? We’ve got one of the biggest QBs in the league and it’s like that’s not even part of our playbook. Anyway, no more excuses, we simply need to play better.
