Failing Hope

We finished week one with a Donte Whitner tear jerker, allowing Tom Brady to provide last minute heroics to win on national television.

Week two, the Bills played an inferior Tampa Bay team, much to the satisfaction of the fans won an easy game.

Week three, in come the high scoring, league leading, record holding New Orleans Saints.  It didn’t sound pretty from the get go.

But then you got watching the game, and the defense, well, other than the first drive of the game, kept the Buffalo Bills competitive until a late blow. After the first drive it looked like the Saints were going to continue pushing scores up across the NFL.  Moments later Brian Moorman connected again for his second NFL touchdown in as many years, in a well executed fake field goal.

The problem, much like the preseason, the Bills left all the scoring up the special teams.  Wrong answer.

When will it be time to realize that Dick Jauron needs to go?  When will it be realized that our current scouting department probably needs some work.

When will the Bills realize that aggression wins football games.  Up 17-7 the Saints threw a bomb that could have deflated the Bills earlier, while the pass was overthrown, it still showed how far behind most of the league the Bills are.
