The Buffalo Bills dismissed offensive coordinator Greg Roman Friday afternoon. And, after that process, Roman submitted a statement to The Buffalo News thanking the fans and the Bills organization. Roman did help engineer the top rushing attack in the league in 2015, orchestrating a unit that averaged 152 yards per game.
However, Buffalo’s offensive performance through two weeks this season left plenty to be desired in both the running and passing game, which ultimately led to his termination. Rumor has it Rex and Roman didn’t get along. Perhaps the team owners, the Pegula’s should consider firing Rex since the team has given up 50 points in 2 games and sits at the bottom of the NFC east standings. Haven’t heard a word out of the so call “defensive genius” windbag whose team is 0-2.
While the Giant offense was bumbling, and literally fumbling, its way through Sunday afternoon the defense kept marching back onto the field and turning Drew Brees and the Saints away. New Orleans punted on its first 5 possessions and 7 times overall, scored just one touchdown, and finished with 288 total yards of offense. Eli on the other hand, (aside from a fumble when he was sacked), was pretty good. He went 32-of-41 for 368 yards, and could probably have completed another half-dozen throws had he gotten help from his receivers. The one exception was rookie Sterling Shepard who had 8 catches, for 117 yards.
It wasn’t pretty, but they won. And now were 2-0 (the first time in 8 years). It’s too early to call next weeks game against the Redskins a Big game, but wouldn’t it be nice to be 3-0?
That loud noise you heard at the end of last night’s Yankee game was the coffin slamming shut. While the team went 3-10, Joe Giardi went to his inept bullpen way too man times and the Yankees were kicked out of the Wild Card race, highlighted by a four-game sweep at Fenway Park. In each game of the Boston series the Yanks took a lead and the inevitable happened. A walk, a big hit, a crucial error or a home run and it was game over. They lost all of them.
The infusion of youth at the trade deadline gave the Yankees a jolt that unexpectedly carried a disappointing, listless team back into playoff contention. For the fans it was a view into the future. It was fun, but now it’s over. Now at least looking toward 2017 we have HOPE!
