The Pro Bowl wasn’t all that fun to watch but Buffalo Bills fans got to see Kyle Williams on the field one last time before his retirement.
Well that wasn’t a fun experience.
The Pro Bowl wrapped up earlier this afternoon and while the hype was real, the game was once again a dud.
The reason I tuned in, and why Buffalo Bills fans tuned in, was to see Kyle Williams in his final NFL game. It was clear early on that there wouldn’t be much of a pass rush, but Williams did finish with two total tackles.
He did not make a big play on offense like I hoped, yet the fact it was raining meant there was no point in risking an injury. Especially in the final game of his career.
I was also eager to hear a lot from Jim Kelly. That didn’t happen either. What I did hear was a lot of the MNF announcing crew. I thought I was done with them until next season.
Williams did get to end his career with another win as the AFC came out on top, 26-7. That is a nice way to end a career, although the Bills win in Week 17 was truly his send-off.
And just like that Williams is officially done. He now gets to go home and hangout with his family and just be a dad. He could also return to the sidelines as a coach, but probably not right away. I imagine he just wants to relax for a bit after a grueling career as a defensive lineman.
Not only did he play 13 years in the NFL, but just think about the beating he took for all the years of football he played before then.
We can now focus our attention to hating the New England Patriots as there is a real football game to be played next Sunday.
