It's Official

Evil alien pod people have taken over the body of Trent Edwards and replaced him with this guy.

I hate this guy.

Other things I hate:
*The constant references to "Wide Right" by the ESPN staff. We get it; missed field goals have drained our souls as Bills fans. We don't need to be reminded 395 times.
*Dick Jauron's play calling at the end of the game. I know evil alien "Trent" was having more than his share of troubles tonight, but we needed to at least try to get more yardage for Lindell. A 47-yard kick into the wind was too long; if my dad and I could see that, so could he. Once again, his conservative nature proved a detriment.
*The shots of Jim Kelly on the sidelines, if only for the fact that they made me wish he could suit up for the second half.
*Having a team that builds you up to believing that this may finally be the year, only to suffer one of the most epic collapses I've witnessed in my years of sports fandom. Thanks for making the heartbreak about 10 times worse this season, guys.

The few things I didn't hate:
*Beast Mode. He wanted this win so bad he could taste it in his grillz.
*Our return game, with McKelvin finally breaking out.
*...and that's pretty much it.

I wish I could more eloquently phrase the mixture of anger, sadness, and growing apathy that this game has brought out in me. All I can say is that, at least until next week, the Bills make me wanna punch a lot of people in the face - starting with those damn, body-snatching aliens.

I hate 4 completions to wide receivers. 3 of them to S. Johnson. Seriously, did Lee Evans even play??

I could not agree more. I can't remember which play it was, but Trent threw it to Lynch (I think), and they showed a shot of Evans practically doing an interpretive dance about how open he was.

I hate that we have one of the best receivers in the AFC and JP Losman was the only one who knew how to use him.

Not being a football fan at all, I completely agree with this post. I watched SportsCenter this morning to check out the stats of this game and they showed a wonderful thing with 'The first 5 games' and 'the last 4' for the Bills, and I said a loud 'Yuck.'

The aliens have snatched Trent Edwards body, fo' sho'.

I'm so glad you agree with me, Jael; there's nothing worse than that second that you realzie that this team just isn't going to be what you thought it could be. :(

Shelby, I'm glad I could make a non-football fan feel the disappointment that was last night (and really the last nine or so years); there's nothing like everyone being depressed together. haha

I said a loud 'Yuck.'

I said that too, along with many things that I probably shouldn't say here...
