Someone needs to talk to Johnson

Standard

Buffalo Bills fans all knew that wide receiver Stevie Johnson would be upset for a while after his drop in overtime of last Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

However, after Monday’s tweets so meone needs to take Johnson aside and have a long talk with him.

Johnson was criticized for a text after Sunday’s game that seemed to be telling off god.

“I PRAISE YOU 24/7!!!!!! AND THIS HOW YOU DO ME!!!!! YOU EXPECT ME TO LEARN FROM THIS??? HOW???!!! ILL NEVER FORGET THIS!! EVER!!! THX THO…,” Johnson tweeted.

He would then on Monday wrote again to clear up what he meant.

“I learned A lot Within 24hrs. Saw Both Sides.(Ups&Dwns) I AM HAPPY & THANKFUL 4 YESTERDAY! w/out Sunday iWldnt have grew closer w/The Lord,” Johnson wrote. “And No I Did Not Blame God People! Seriously??!? CMon! I Simply Cried Out And Asked Why? Jus Like yal did wen sumthin went wrong n ur life!”

You think that it would end there, but that is not the case as Johnson kept going on.

“So Before Yall..well I’m pretty sure you’ve already judged me. I hope you guys look n the mirror. I dnt blame u 4 being mad @ my gm I WAS 2,” Johnson wrote. “Spoke To Friends Fam Teammates and Most Importantly I Spoke With My Wife. I Honestly Believe Evrything Happens For A Reason! Everything!”

Clearly the game is still bugging him, along with the criticism from Bills fans. I don’t blame him as this is the first time he is dealing with this type of widespread criticism after barely getting on the field in his previous two years.”

In the end, hopefully Johnson will realize that he can easily redeem himself this Sunday with another outstanding performance.

NBC has some guts

Standard

NBC’s “Law and Order” television series has always used real stories for inspiration for episodes, but today I couldn’t believe my eyes as during a commercial in the show “The Event” there clear as day was an promo for an upcoming of “Law and Order Los Angeles” was an episode inspired by the Tiger Woods story.

You got to admit NBC has some guts for taking it on.

By now most people in the United States know that after a traffic accident just outside his home it was revealed the Woods had numerous amount of mistresses. That ultimately led to Woods getting a divorce from his wife and checking into clinic to get treated for a sex addiction.

This is not you average everyday person or news story.  This is a high publicized figure that has a ton of money and could easily file a lawsuit that would drag out in court as long as he wants to. That would essentially translate into a public relations nightmare.

If Woods doesn’t sue it would be due to him getting sympathy from people.  The incident happened over a year ago and I could frankly careless as there are a lot of guys out there that would probably do the same thing. ESPN’s Colin Cowherd said it best if Woods was single guys everywhere would be giving him a high five.

In the end, NBC will be pretty lucky if they come away from this unscathed.

I got to face the music

Standard

For a while now I have been hard on nose tackle Kyle Williams, but that changed Sunday.

For that I have to face the music.

Williams was an animal Sunday as he was constantly in the Pittsburgh Steelers backfield on the way to a 10 combined tackles two sack game.  Even backup Torell Troup was in the Steelers backfield, but that still wasn’t enough for the Bills as the defense was dominated in the first half.

So, that begs the question what was the problem in the first half?

According to WGR’s Paul Hamilton in an interview with the station’s morning show stated the Kyle Williams was adamant that they did nothing different from the first to second half, but tackle better.  If that is the case what the heck are they doing in practice?

I know football is a brutal sport and in the National Football League coaches need to be careful with veteran players.  However, at some point in time during the week prior to a game a teams has to practice hitting, or your players will not be good at it come gameday.

In the end, if the linebackers don’t start doing a better job of tackling then it will be time to get new linebackers.
