i don't even know who i am you guys

horseshoe, Sunday, 8 March 2009 03:40 (ten years ago) link

my sister just called to tell me and i...i don't know. couldn't finish a sentence.

horseshoe, Sunday, 8 March 2009 03:41 (ten years ago) link

i realize this thread is a pale version of MOSS TO PATS! HOLY WOW!~ but what happened? i am confused.

horseshoe, Sunday, 8 March 2009 03:46 (ten years ago) link

He hit 51 SBs in Dallas and had to go to, like, 4chan, right?

WmC, Sunday, 8 March 2009 03:53 (ten years ago) link

my sister thinks the bills did this so people would give a shit about them. why did t.o. do this?

she also compared this move to late-john-mccain-campaign antics.

horseshoe, Sunday, 8 March 2009 04:34 (ten years ago) link

okay watching t.o.'s press conference. he just dubbed the Bills "North America's team"

horseshoe, Sunday, 8 March 2009 04:35 (ten years ago) link

it would be totally hypocritical of me to decide i love t.o., right?

horseshoe, Sunday, 8 March 2009 04:36 (ten years ago) link

lol wow

eman, Sunday, 8 March 2009 04:36 (ten years ago) link

guys i know it's saturday night but i need help.

horseshoe, Sunday, 8 March 2009 04:37 (ten years ago) link

btw in this press conference he was wearing a Bills cap so even though "North America's Team" is retarded and makes no sense, i think i love him now.

horseshoe, Sunday, 8 March 2009 04:42 (ten years ago) link

"North America's team" is badass, c'mon, it makes sense in a fucked up way, kinds like t.o. It will end in pain of course but so what for now

Euler, Sunday, 8 March 2009 04:53 (ten years ago) link

Don't be a sucker, horseshoe. He will leave this team worse than he found them!

Johnny Fever, Sunday, 8 March 2009 04:54 (ten years ago) link

that will be quite a feat

Johnny Fever, Sunday, 8 March 2009 04:59 (ten years ago) link

maybe some people who don't live in buffalo will learn a few bills' players names. i kind of feel like it would be worth it on balance. when you ain't got nothing you got nothing to lose etc.

horseshoe, Sunday, 8 March 2009 05:01 (ten years ago) link

just roll with it horseshoe

all right i need to go think about nothing but this for a very long time.

t.o.-flakes

mookieproof, Sunday, 8 March 2009 05:03 (ten years ago) link

I'll be behind this 100% if Trent Edwards grows a pair of boulders and keeps T.O. in check. Garcia, McNabb and Romo couldn't do it, so more power to him.

Johnny Fever, Sunday, 8 March 2009 05:05 (ten years ago) link

I basically love TO, and every team he's ever been on has been a playoff team at least for part of his tenure. The fact that it's a small media market will ultimately be very helpful for him and for the team.

as long as t.o. gets a BEAST MODE grill i'm okay with this

Had no idea that he was still suicidal though.

the 'north america's team' thing kinda won me over... something about this entire circumstance is just awesome to me. great move by the bills imo.

'what happened? i am confused.' shd be the board description btw

boner state university (cankles), Sunday, 8 March 2009 06:52 (ten years ago) link

idk canks, does trent edwards really need the distraction of t.o. on top of trying to prove himself as a franchise qb

wow heaven is cool (J0rdan S.), Sunday, 8 March 2009 08:27 (ten years ago) link

all right i have marinated on this and i've decided that the season needs to start right now. can we make this happen y/n?

horseshoe, Sunday, 8 March 2009 15:13 (ten years ago) link

my friend from Buffalo just left a message on my answering machine, he sounded very drunk about this move

Stan-ton Macoute (brownie), Sunday, 8 March 2009 15:39 (ten years ago) link

horseshoe it's cool to love t.o. now, i fully endorse the embracing of former hated enemies and have ever since the bulls picked up rodman in '96

and how (omar little), Sunday, 8 March 2009 16:13 (ten years ago) link

thank you omar i believe you are right.

horseshoe, Sunday, 8 March 2009 16:37 (ten years ago) link

yes this news mostly makes me wish the season were now

johnny crunch, Sunday, 8 March 2009 17:01 (ten years ago) link

i think he won't be a distraction, not on a one year contract

boner state university (cankles), Sunday, 8 March 2009 18:07 (ten years ago) link

OH BUFFALO. LOLZ. From one former TO sufferer to a future one: GOOD LUCK.

it's clear to me now that t.o. has always been a misunderstood angel.

horseshoe, Sunday, 8 March 2009 21:20 (ten years ago) link

"north america's team" is brilliant imo

wow heaven is cool (J0rdan S.), Sunday, 8 March 2009 21:21 (ten years ago) link

the more i think about it the more i love this move, mostly because of t.o.'s track record in his first year w/ a team

wow heaven is cool (J0rdan S.), Sunday, 8 March 2009 21:22 (ten years ago) link

I still don't like it. Buffalo's fragile enough as it is. :(

Johnny Fever, Sunday, 8 March 2009 21:23 (ten years ago) link

buffalo needs difference makers on both sides of the ball... they have a TON of good/solid starters, but not much top shelf talent. T.O. isn't elite anymore, but imo he can only help them at this point

Guess I won't be taking Lee Evans as my standard unprepared sixth-round pick.

•--• --- --- •--• (Pleasant Plains), Monday, 9 March 2009 00:54 (ten years ago) link

YOU GUYS I AM SO HAPPY

obv, TO will open things up for Lee Evans AND the backs. For the first time since Moulds/Price, the offense won't live or die based on how good a day WR2 is having. And there will be enough footballs to go around, since Evans wasn't seeing the ball much in triple-coverage anyway.

I'm more concerned about what to make of a diminished TO. Will he be all sadface in a rusted-out nowhere town? Will he constantly be jetting off to Cleveland to party with Ocho Cinco? I have no doubt that the city will welcome him with open arms and all the Labbatt's he can drink. Upside is he will be the beloved monarch of Buffalo, and the only thing approximating big-city press for hundreds of miles will be easily-awed Canadians. He may actually get all the adulation he needs with none of the Terrell-baiting that was like the national sport of Philadelphia.

This is going to be great.

And "North America's Team" is hilarious. I already want the t-shirt.

horseshoe, Monday, 9 March 2009 03:12 (ten years ago) link

sorry to hate, this is just the worst quarterbacking situation t.o. has been a part of by a mile.

He grew in Pussyville. Population: him. (call all destroyer), Monday, 9 March 2009 03:19 (ten years ago) link

so what's the worst that happens... TO says some mean things about TE to The Toronto Star?

butt-rock miyagi (rogermexico.), Monday, 9 March 2009 05:07 (ten years ago) link

worst-case scenario is t.o. loses his shit and attacks kevin everett during the latter's inspirational speech before a home game in the second half of the season.

and how (omar little), Monday, 9 March 2009 06:13 (ten years ago) link

He is going to rip off Kevin Everett's head on the 50 yard line and scream ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED

― butt-rock miyagi (rogermexico.), Monday, March 9, 2009

no, he says it to espn like he always fucking does and makes it a national news story and drama, the way he always fucking does. you guys seriously think that the national media isn't going to follow him there and needle him in buffalo? or that somehow the dallas morning star was the one making t.o.'s batshitness a matter of national security? it's not that hard to get there guys, and it also contradicts y'alls earlier "omg he will bring national press attention to this small market team" so tits or gtfo basically.

sorry to be the spoilsport but i feel sorry for u guize. otm re: this is the shittiest qb situation he's gotten himself into yet -- it will end, probably, in buffalo being burnt to the ground fyi

lady burt stanton (the schef (adam schefter ha ha)), Monday, 9 March 2009 14:02 (ten years ago) link

granted, good points all around with the "buffalo is already bad so who cares" tip, he can't do toooooooooooo much more damage as to what they've already done to themselves ;_;

<3 marv levy's response was to ask the person who informed him of this move if they were drunk

lady burt stanton (the schef (adam schefter ha ha)), Monday, 9 March 2009 14:03 (ten years ago) link

there should be 2 contract clauses--1) t.o. cannot be w/in 500 ft of any media 2) has to see a shrink on the regular

The Peter King story almost makes sense out of it all. Glad I read it.

Johnny Fever, Tuesday, 10 March 2009 01:46 (ten years ago) link

Yeah, that was a definite slot a tab b explanation.
I think since Dr. Z is gone, King is getting lotsa good info. I always thought he was fluff, but he's had a half dozen good pieces in the past six months.

he is fluff when it comes to analyzing the game and a bunch of other stuff, but as a reporter he is p good

boxall, Tuesday, 13 November 2012 00:01 (seven years ago) link

it's sort of heartbreaking. also the move from war memorial to ralph wilson stadium is the same story as everything that happened in buffalo in the 20th century, fucking over the black community-wise.

horseshoe, Tuesday, 13 November 2012 23:21 (seven years ago) link

It seems that the people he randomly interviewed from the black community came from other parts of the country (ie - the guy from north carolina)
I'm ok with high schoolers not rooting for the bills because the last ten years have been rough.
