In another world, I’d spend this column writing about how Tyrod Taylor just played the best game of his career. How he patiently was able to break down the defense taking what the they gave to him all night. How he did it against the league’s best defense on the road on Monday Night Football. I’d write about how the Bills offensive line spent the night shoving around Seattle’s defense. I’d write about how LeSean McCoy looked healthy and special again. About how Robert Woods just dominated the vaunted Seattle secondary as a lead receiver and put up 10 catches and 162 yards. I’d write about how the Bills offense finally looked like the embodiment of an efficient ground and pound offense we’ve all been waiting for. About how the defense, after giving up 28 points in the first half only gave up 3 in the second half and got pressure to Russell Wilson. About how Lorenzo Alexander just got his 10th sack in the 9th game of the season. Or about how Shaq Lawson just got another sack and looks really good. But I’m not. Because the officials just sucked the life out of the best Bills performance in years. Continue reading

Jim and Evan were chomping at the bit for this one, an all new Hard Foul Podcast! This week we start with Jim’s Giants getting a big win against New Orleans and address the Bills direction after firing Greg Roman. The guys then took a look at Week 2 league wide, which teams’ hype trains are full speed ahead? And for which teams should we pump the breaks?

Who’s the real culprit for the Bills problems? Is GM Doug Whaley to blame? (Getty Images)
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

It’s week 17 and the cream has risen to the top in the NFC. Unlike the AFC, which is made up of Tom Brady and five regular dudes, the NFC field has a “big three” that separate themselves from the others. The Cardinals, the Seahawks and the Panthers are the best teams in the NFC, and there’s a clear drop off after them.
