How can it get worst for the Bills?

Standard

Buffalo Bills fans have watched their team since the turn of the century slowly decline into the basement of the National Football League.

With the season already being bad for the Bills as they are 0-5 one has to wonder how can it get worst?

On Thursday ESPN’s Tim Graham asked if a UFL team could beat the Buffalo Bills, which the show Pardon the Interruption also discussed. Both stated that the UFL probably wouldn’t stand a chance, but the thing is Bills starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick can be terribly inaccurate that sometimes leads to interceptions. If that were to happen Bills fans probably would disown the team.

Another idea that comes to mind is the offensive line depth.  Starting right offensive tackle Cornell Green is out for a while and if starting left tackle Demetrius Bell were to go down with a injury the Bills would be starting two rookies at offensive tackle.

If the offensive line were to be depleted by injuries not only could you see back up quarterback Brian Brohm getting action, but third string quarterback Levi Brown could also see some playing time.

The fact of the matter is that it is still the first half of the regular season and the Bills have yet to sustain any major injuries.  However, that should change soon as this is the National Football League and everyone goes through injuries.

In the end, it is only going to get worst, but when it does at least it will be laughable as we all have accepted that the Bills are just plain awful.

Can Cutler hold up?

Standard

The Chicago Bears offensive line was exposed in week four against the New York Giants as the Giants sacked Bears 10 times.

With the Bears leading the way in sacks allowed with 23 one has to wonder if  Bears starting quarterback Jay Cutler can hold up through the season?

The Bears have a brutal schedule for the last four weeks of the regular season. In week 14 they host the New England Patriots, then travel to Minnesota to take on the Vikings, followed by hosting the New York Jets and to finish of the regular season they take on the Green Bay Packers.

Currently the Bears are 4-2 and are on top of the NFC North.  However, the Packers are one game behind and if they cannot find a way to protect Cutler then sooner or later he will suffer a season ending injury, and when that happens forget about the playoffs.

In the end, the Bears have two options either run the football more or find a way to protect the quarterback.
