Following the Buffalo Bills’ playoff exit to the Cincinnati Bengals, of course there would be a lot of questions.
How do the Bills get over the hump? How does this team take that next step? They’ve gotten so close, two years in a row. Where do they go from here?
One of the questions fans never thought they’d be asking, though, is something along the lines of: is Stefon Diggs going to pull the same thing he did in Minnesota?
After the playoff loss, Diggs was seen trying to leave the locker room early. Teammate Duke Johnson stopped him and convinced him to come back to the locker room for Sean McDermott’s postgame address. But, Diggs left shortly after.
Diggs was obviously frustrated by the loss and Buffalo’s performance. He’s an emotional player. He’s a competitor, and that’s a good thing. But, he would later take to Twitter to express his frustration and that, folks, should be a little worrisome.
Stefon Diggs’ postgame Twitter comments should worry Buffalo Bills fans, reminding them of a similar situation a few years back
Back in 2019, Diggs pulled something similar. He took to twitter while with the Vikings and tweeted “Its time for a new beginning.”
What happened then?
He was traded to the Bills. Vikings fans watched him get his wish.
Diggs is one of the most talented receivers in all of football. But, he can also be a highly emotional, near diva-level type of player. Is that a bad thing? Not always. But, it can be, when it comes to situations like this.
Is this just normal frustration, or is this something that will lead Diggs to wanting another way out of his current team? Is he going to wonder if the grass is greener every few years? Is this just the player he is?
Hopefully, this doesn’t lead to Diggs wanting out of Buffalo and he can be talked off a ledge if that’s where he’s at.
