Ebs’ One Big Thing: The Buffalo Bills

CLIFTON PARK, NY – Bahahahahahaha.zach-brown

There’s really only one thing I could discuss in this week’s column, and that’s the Buffalo Bills. And honestly, it’s rightfully so.

The New York Yankees’ season is over – though I do believe Gary Sanchez deserves to be the AL Rookie of the Year – and the New York Mets made the playoffs again. But honestly, does anybody really like their chances? They’re playing the San Francisco Giants on an even year for Pete’s sake. Who is Pete by the way?

But back to the Bills.

I could have easily posted some screenshots of some of the things a lot of you wrote in the comments sections of my columns after Week 1 and Week 2, but I’m not about that. You know who you are.

ShadyHowever, I do have to give Cheesy Bruin a shoutout for taking the Bills in his column yesterday. Very smart my good sir. I did too.

Look, as a New England Patriots fan you could make excuses… Well more like excuse. Sure New England was without Tom Brady, but hey, the Bills were without some studs too. No Sammy Watkins, Marcell Dareus, Shaq Lawson and Reggie Ragland. That’s three starters and a heck of a backup in Ragland right there. So I don’t want to hear it.

The Bill shut out the Patriots on the road. Deal with it.

It’s time to give Rex Ryan and the Bills some credit. With his back against the wall Rex went out and beat Bruce Arians and Bill Belichick in back-to-back weeks. If you can’t respect that then I can’t help you.

Now looking forward, the Bills play three teams that combine for a 5-7 record, in the Los Angeles Rams, San fumble-recoveryFrancisco 49ers and Miami Dolphins. That’s a Rex Ryan defense against Case Keenum, Blaine Gabbert and Ryan Tannehill. I like the Bills’ chances.

Then there’s the showdown in Orchard Park between the Bills and Tom Brady. Oh boy, what a game that could be!

While I’m not counting my chickens before they hatch, I like what this team is doing. Tyrod Taylor is talented enough to win games against tough defenses, like Arizona and New England, LeSean McCoy is still one of the league’s top playmakers and this defense is legit. Oh, and Marcell Dareus is back now too.

The future looks bright!

P.S. In case your team wasn’t as fortunate yesterday, I think this might be able to cheer you up.
