As flubby mentioned in a previous installment of Better Know a Team, it has been a while since the Music City Miracle. The Bills, the team that got miracl'd, choose to refer the incident as The Music City Extremely Poor and Inopportune Kickoff Coverage and haven't been back to the playoffs since.
Some things you may not know about the Bills:
- Most people know the team is named for Buffalo Bill Cody, who was not from and likely never visited Buffalo. Tom Benson will use this as his reasoning when he moves the Saints to Los Angeles and changes their name to the Genghis Khans. Or just Los Locos.
The team's most famous fan is occasional journalist and all-the-time fat-faced ruddyman, Tim Russert, whose son also inherited the family meathead, both literally and figuratively.
- The Bills have the ugliest uniforms in the NFL. It's science. Perhaps they gazed lovingly at the duds of the CFL teams to the north or they saw the success that met the Patriots and the Broncos soon after they donned their new ugly suits. I'm not sure. Is it too late to name the team after Joseph Merrick?
- Even Mel Kiper laughed at them for taking Donte Whitner with the 8th pick in this year's draft, when he could have easily been had at least 20 to 30 picks later. Turn that one over in your heads for a while, Bills fans. Mah-el Ky-poor June-yor larffed aught 'chu. But not Isiah Thomas, surprisingly.
- Scott Norwood now resides in Northern Virginia, where he makes a living as realtor, mostly selling ranch homes that lean just a little to the right. Third prize is you're fired, Norwood. PUT THAT COFFEE DOWN NORWOOD! Coffee is for kickers!
Bills, I'm not the first to tell you that you're proper fucked. Your coach is Dick Jauron. Your quarterback battle is being waged between J.P. Losman and Kelly Holcomb, a contest otherwise know as the conflation Loscomb. Where's Sharp Stick in the Eye? Cap causalty? I even heard the team brought in Primo Levi to be your general manger. Can't be a good sign.
