With the Fourth of July just around the corner, we thought it would be fun to compare some of the Bills players to types of fireworks.
Kolby Listenbee and Marquise Goodwin – Single Shot
Kolby Listenbee and Marquise Goodwin are the two fastest players on the Bills team and potentially the entire league. Both have Olympic-caliber speed. They will be tasked with blazing straight down the field and trying to explode for a big play or touchdown. A single-shot firework streaks straight up into the sky before exploding just like these speedy wide receivers.

Tyrod Taylor – Sparkler
Sorry Tyrod, this is not to emasculate you but rather because let’s face it, you are not going to hurt anyone just like a sparkler. Sparklers happen to be a favorite firework for kids because they actually get to hold them. Tyrod Taylor is surely one of the most popular players with the kids as the quarterback. Just like a sparkler Tyrod can shoot off in any direction and you are never quite sure which way will be next but he’s a lot of fun to watch.
You don’t need a video for sparklers but fine, here it is.

LeSean McCoy – Crossette
LeSean McCoy is just like a crossette which shoots up multiple streams of fireworks which all break off into two directions and spread out. Just like a crossette, McCoy will head straight for a target before breaking off to the left or the right with his outstanding agility to avoid tackles.
Check out this video of a crossette here.
Richie Incognito – M-80
Richie Incognito is one of the best pulling guards in the entire league if not the best. He seeks out contact like few other players on the offensive line when he gets out into open space. When he meets a defender, he explodes into the player pushing them out of the way and creates a loud thud just like an M-80.
Check out how loud an M-80 is here.
Jerry Hughes – Roman Candle
A Roman Candle when lit, sets off an explosion of multiple shells up into the sky. On any given down Jerry Hughes is exploding off the line and trying to maneuver in any direction he can to get his hands on the quarterback. Roman Candles are known to cause accidents and are illegal in several states. While Hughes is not illegal in any state (that I’m aware of), he does sometimes use his over aggressiveness to cause penalties (accidents) and has been flagged for his fair share of illegal plays.

So now you can enjoy your Fourth of July Weekend and when you see a kid light a sparkler you can say “that reminds me of Tyrod Taylor” and all your friends will think you’ve had one too many. Happy Fourth Bills Fans and please be safe!
