The True Colors of Buffalo

Enter the annual proverbial football facade of the season

Remember when Buffalo was 5-2 in the beginning of the season? When people were praising Ryan Fitzpatrick as some kind of quarterback genius spawned from the unlikely home of the Harvard football team? Remember when they barely beat the Patriots and everybody thought they were the real deal? Me neither. But it seems like when the dust finally settled the Buffalo’s true colors came to light.

They are not a good team.

14 TDs and 7 picks for the young QB during their brief reign over the AFC. Not stellar statistics but good enough for a decent team. Now two months, 8 TDs to 12 picks and 7 straight losses later, everyone is shaking their heads for having any faith in a team that hasn’t been good since their super bowl-tease years.

It’s teams like this that make me a very wary skeptic towards underdogs that seem to have a chance. It took me a while to warm up to San Fran and Houston but now that they’ve proven themselves I have no lingering doubts.

Yes it is true that there are teams like the 2008 Arizona Cardinals out there that squeak into the playoffs all the way into the Super Bowl. But they are still few and far between.
