The Good, Bad, and The Hound

By Kevin Sylvester, Buffalo Sports Page

 

Good

Tony Romo—He’s not polished, but he tells you what’s going to happen, and explains what happened without talking above the audience. And how about the great explanation on why Tyrod stayed in the game? Stating that you don’t need the backup throwing a couple of TD’s was as candid as I’ve heard.

Zay Jones-The kid is making catches in traffic and coming around. A TD to boot.

World Series —I wanted Yankees vs Dodgers, but Astros vs Dodgers was pretty darn great.

Dilly Dilly —The new What’s Up?

Sabres Win – 5-4 over the Coyotes. Who cares that the ‘Yotes almost came back for their second win of the season. Glad to see Kyle Okposo finally score his first of the season too.

 

Bad

Benjamin inactive-There was every reason not to play him, and they used them to sit him. I understand he doesn’t know the playbook, but he knows how to get the ball.

Zay Jones Injury—It looked ugly, and when the announcers say “Oh” it never is. However, he came back………and then aggravated it again.

Bills Offensive Line—The worst performance in recent memory. Control the line, control the game. The Bills line controlled nothing.

The Hound

Thursday Night Football —-I hate it, I hate it, I hate it. Players need more time in between games, and so do the fans. I give Richie Incognito credit for saying it’s Bullsnot having to play on short rest.

 

World Series Start Times —As a kid, I remember watching the World Series after school and finishing the game with my dad when he got home from work. I couldn’t do the same with my sons because the games ran too late.

DeShaun Watson—Torn ACL in practice. Took the wind right out of World Series celebration.

Facemasks and Fumbles—Killed the Bills.

Blaming Tyrod Taylor—Fans will blame Tyrod Taylor for the loss when he deserves very little blame. I thought he actually looked poised in the pocket and used the middle of the field. He was throwing well when he had time to throw. There was zero running game, and most of the passing game is predicated on play-action. He had no chance. The defense (which gets most of the credit for the five wins) was terrible too.
