Ugly animals don’t get screen time on Sarah McLachlan commercials, and you don’t see a lot about the Miami Dolphins on SportsCenter. Tony Romo thinks football is a meritocracy and I agree with him, but sometimes it isn’t covered as such. The Kansas City Chiefs don’t move the needle like the Dallas Cowboys do, and cute golden retrievers get more people to pick up their phone and donate to the ASPCA than some mangy one-eyed mutt.

I’m not suggesting we need more clips of ugly dogs or Chiefs highlights, but once in a while, it’s cool to acknowledge their existence. So in this article, I’m going to give some love to teams who get glossed over. These five squads might not be sexy but they’re worth keeping a tab on, because right now they’re doing a decent job of dancing in the dark, and I’m interested to see what they look like when the lights come on in the playoffs.

Typically when the Bills are on their bye week there’s a sense of disappointment in the air. No matter how bad the team is playing in a given season, you still miss seeing your squad play on Sunday. However, I felt like this bye week was desperately needed on two fronts: a football team that has been battered by injuries and desperately needs a week to recharge; and a fanbase that’s emotionally exhausted from Monday’s officiating debacle in Seattle. As a result I welcomed this week’s bye with open arms. But even with the Bills taking a break, football never stops. While many of you probably took this Sunday as an opportunity to spend time with family or catch up on tasks around the house, I got my weekly dose of pigskin like the football junkie I am. Here’s the good, the bad, and the ugly from the Bills week off. Continue reading

Jets @ Bills (Thursday):

So, by now everyone knows that the Bills’ insanely reactionary answer to Thursday night’s embarrassment was to fire offensive coordinator Greg Roman.  Many people have also (correctly) pointed out that it wasn’t Greg Roman’s offense that gave up 37 points and 500 yards.  I’ve seen various reactions from the Bills’ Mafia calling for Rob or Rex Ryan’s head, but that really misses the bigger point:  Doug Whaley is the worst GM in football.  Continue reading

The Chiefs, fresh off their first playoff victory in my lifetime, are in New England to face the champs.  Kansas City is on an absolute tear, but that doesn’t make this game any less daunting. The sentence “Andy Reid and Alex Smith beat Bill Belichick and Tom Brady at home in the playoffs” sounds preposterous no many how many times I say it to myself. Yet, it isn’t hard for me to imagine a scenario where the Chiefs win, especially when you factor in the injury troubles of the Patriots and that they stumbled into the playoffs, losing four of their last six games.
