Stephon Gilmore played for the Buffalo Bills for the first five years of his career (2012 to 2016) before moving onto New England, Carolina, Indianapolis, and most recently, Dallas. Why are we talking about Gilmore right now when he hasn't played in Buffalo in seven years? Well, the former Bills cornerback took a completely unnecessary shot at his former team.

While making an appearance on FanSided's Stacking the Box with Cowboys teammate Brandin Cooks, Gilmore was asked about the differences between the Bills and Cowboys fan bases.

"I just think that Bills fans, they're more, like, old school, blue collar fans. That's all there is to do in Buffalo is be a Buffalo fan, they're ain't much going on. Those fans have been there for years and I think the Cowboys fans is more worldwide."

Stephon Gilmore says there isn't much going on in Buffalo.

Gilmore is obviously entitled to his opinion but was it really necessary to throw shade at his former team like this? He could have spoken about how passionate the fan base is but instead he feels the need to say there's nothing to do in Buffalo and that's all Bills fans have going for them.

Gilmore hasn't played for the Bills since 2016 and the team wasn't very good during his time in Buffalo. Once Josh Allen hit his stride in 2019, the Bills became a totally different team and are Super Bowl contenders every year.

It's also worth noting that the Bills made it further in the playoffs this year than Gilmore's Cowboys but that's neither here nor there. Still, Bills fans won't like that Gilmore was talking smack about the team that drafted him.
