Playoffs still a long shot

Standard

The Buffalo Bills haven’t gone to the playoffs since the 1999, which ended in the Music City Miracle. The team has some talent, but they are still going to be a long shot to make the playoffs.

The simple reason is their division rival New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.

Brady’s rookie year was in 2000, which also happens to be the first season of the drought. It’s not a coincidence that the Bills haven’t made the playoffs since then. There is one problem this year for Bills fans.

That is Brady isn’t slowing down at 39-years-old.

Most quarterbacks by now are beat up, suffered numerous injuries and are tired of the daily NFL grind. However, that isn’t Brady as he is planning to play a lot longer.

“I’d like to play until my mid-forties,” Brady told Peter King of Sports Illustrated in an interview. “Then I’ll make a decision. If I’m still feeling like I’m feeling today, who knows? Now those things can always change. You do need long-term goals too. I know next year is not going to be my last year.”

Until Brady retires or his performance drops dramatically; the playoffs most likely will be a pipe dream for Bills fans.

 

What the Sabres fans and Tom Brady have in common

Standard

The Buffalo Sabres are on a two game winning streak after their win Wednesday night against the Toronto Maples, which leaves them two points behind second last place Arizona Coyotes. If the Sabres don’t finish last, Sabres fans have only themselves to blame.

Going into the March 26nd home game against the Coyotes many in the media were wondering how fans would behave themselves. Those who watch the game saw the game know what happened. Let’s just say the Sabres didn’t like what happpened, which could cost Sabres fans the chance to draft coveted prospects Erie Otters Connor MacDavid and Boston University’s Jack Eichel.

The most aggravating thing is that you think that Buffaloians would have learned to keep their moths’ shut after New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady for the last 15 years..

However, that isn’t the case as Sabres fans cheered for the Coyotes to win that night

After the game it was pretty evident from multiple Sabres players comments that fans cheering for the Coyotes didn’t sit well with them. They proved that on March 30th when they beat the Coyotes by a score of 4.-1.

So, how does Brady figure into this?

Simple, he and the Patriots for the past 15 years have used every single little quote in the media to motivate them to wins. That has led Brady to his fourth Superbowl win for his career this past Feburary with plenty of time for his fifth.. That fifth win would make him the greatest quarterback in the history of the National Football League, no matter what has happened in the past.

n the end, if the Sabres don’t finish last the, fans only those idiots who attended the game and cheered for the Coyotes.
