It has been over a decade since the Buffalo Bills have made the National Football League playoffs and with such a long drought comes desperation.
However, Bills fans surpassed that as they are now down right pitiful.
For years Bills fans have been clamoring for a franchise quarterback, but now since quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick has shown some signs of life for the position Bills fans basically have long forgotten it. The fact is folks without a franchise quarterback the Bills aren’t going anywhere.
Since the turn of the century only two quarterbacks that have won the Superbowl had average quarterbacks in the Baltimore Ravens in 2001 and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2003. The thing is though both of those teams had outstanding quarterbacks.
The fact of the matter is I am not interested in just seeing the Bills go to the playoffs. I have seen them go to the playoffs six straight years four of which were Superbowl loses. There is no worst feeling in the world than seeing your favorite team lose the Superbowl besides losing a loved one. Every time you see clips of the game you cannot stand to watch at first, but eventually as time passes you come to terms with it and appreciate it.
In the end, the only way the Bills take a defensive guy at third overall is if they are targeting quarterback Christian Ponder in round two.
