The Most Buffalo Bills-ey Thing Ever

By Joe Parello  @HerewegoJoe

With rookie first round pick E.J. Manuel recovering from minor knee surgery and Kevin Kolb's career in jeopardy due to a third concussion, the Buffalo Bills did something that it just seems fitting for the Buffalo Bills to do: Name an undrafted rookie their opening day starter.

Jeff Tuel, an unheralded signal caller that should fit right in with the Bills after doing a great deal of losing at Washington State, was considered a long shot to even make the team a few weeks ago. But, because these are the Bills of the last decade plus, he is now their only hope against Tom Brady and the Patriots.

Geez God, can't you take it easy on Buffalo?

And on the other side of this is New England, who I swear has a schedule each year consisting of 14 teams that will all finish 5-11. How does fate smile so broadly upon the Patriots and spit in the faces of the Bills and Browns?!?! What does it all mean?!?! Does anything really matter?!?!

Well, I will leave you with that football existential quandary for the day, and point out that the Bills have added to their fan base's misery by signing Matt Leinart and trading for Thaddeus Lewis, a man waved by the Browns.
