Whitner weeps, T.O. bolts, Bills bummed

For us inkstained bandwidth-wasting wretches in the media, the loser’s locker room always offers a little more human emotion.

And after a gut-twisting, 25-24 loss to the Patriots on Monday night, the Bills’ locker room was about what you’d expect.

Miserable.

Donte Whitner, the Bills fourth-year safety, had a tear rolling down his cheek as he spoke.

“I wanted to shut everybody up who doesn’t think we’re a good football team,” said Whitner, who finished with 10 tackles.  “We had our opportunity.  We wanted to win, we needed a win, we had a win.  We let it go and it’s tough.  It’s only the first game but we can’t lose like this, we can’t lose these games.  Eleven=point lead, four minutes to go in the game and we lost it. . . .  We did exactly what we expected to do in the first three-and-a-half quarters.  We didn’t care who their quarterback was.”

Asked if he’d ever experienced a more difficult loss, Whitner said, “No. We had them.”

Bills wideout Terrell Owens, meanwhile, had nothing to say.  He had one ball thrown his way in the first half (in. . .complete).  He finished the game with two catches for 46 yards.

“You’re wasting your time,” Owens said when reporters approached him in the Bills locker room.  “I got nothing to say.”

Yeah.  Yet.

UPDATE: T.O. tweeted on his way to the airport, throwing out, “Congrats 2 the Pats!! On the bus headed 2 airport. Cn’t wait 2 get hm & get n the bed….We’ll b ready next week! I promise u that!!”

    Patriots won alright, on a silver platter.

    will be interesting to see how TO reacts this week. they only threw to him 3 times.
    TO, you’ve entered the land of misery:

    they need to put their soap bars in their pillow cases and smack the f out of mckelvin.
    then they would feel better.

    I was hoping the Bills would tople the Pats. But just because of one stupid mistake by a kick returner led to their loss…

    “They are who we thought they were!”.. only the Bills could lose a game like that.. and the Bengals

  8. blackglass says: Sep 14, 2009 11:46 PM

    I really hope the Bills don’t let this ruin thier whole season. They seem like a very good team who just made some poor plays at all the wrong times. Alex Van Pelt called an incredible game on offense, and thier D played great for 50 minutes or so.
    But, as a Pats fan I am not complaining. Tom Brady is friggin amazing.

  9. redsquare says: Sep 14, 2009 11:47 PM

    Mr. Curran, if you had a mic shoved in your face every week with the expectation that you’d say something ridiculous, what would be the effect on you over time?
    Cut the guy some slack. He’s been a hard worker and fighter for years now. He would’ve won a Super Bowl if not for McNabb’s meltdown.
    Sad to see the Pats win without playing a very deserving game. The Empire Strikes Back.
    But between this and and Jets’ first week, the Pats have to be feeling the heat in a way they haven’t in a long time. 5 years since they won a Super Bowl. Tick, tick.

  10. Dont Taze Me Bro says: Sep 14, 2009 11:53 PM

    At least TO didn’t literally run away from the media like Brady ran away from Suzy Kolber.
    That was low class making suzy jog next to him to ask him a question. She had to practically cut him off just to get him to slow down enough to talk.
    I’m guessing ESPN will edit that part so as not to show Brady for the jerk he is.

  12. Debacled says: Sep 14, 2009 11:58 PM

    As a Bills fan, I give up on this team. What is it now- last 3 seasons we’ve had night games in which we’ve lost in the last ticks of the game?
    Bills defensive coordinator Perry Fewell needs to be fired- allowing 12 points (in his limp-wristed…er, bend but don’t break d) in only about 1 minute, 10 seconds? Complete B.S.
    And if it weren’t for that Leodis McKelvin’s hubris, we would have won this game.
    Good game, New England. Even with 5 minutes to go and we’re up by 11 points, I still thought to myself “This is too good to be true, we’ll manage to snag defeat from the jaws of victory.”
    F Buffalo.

  13. Clark says: Sep 14, 2009 11:59 PM

    Hey T.O. replay for me the last two minutes of the game. I know you got it all on your “spy camera.” Or did you drop that too? Brady is The Best EVER!

  14. DanSnyder says: Sep 15, 2009 12:02 AM

    It really sucks for the bills and I feel for them. But following a team that has this happen pretty often too the truth is the better team won.
    The good teams don’t make these mistakes. You can outplay a team all day but if cant hold onto the ball with 2 mins left there is no one to blame but yourself.
    Bills also need to realize they caught the pats on an off day. Sadly I don’t think the next game when brady actually decides to throw down field and not just feel the game out, will it be so close.

  15. leatherneck says: Sep 15, 2009 12:09 AM

    I am not a Bills fan, but I feel bad for the Bills and their fans. Guys, don’t give up. Don’t hang your head. You played very well.
    The Buffalo Bills are a good football team. It’s a long season.
    We’ll see if the Bills are able to turn this into anger and determination.

  16. Plax's Right Thigh says: Sep 15, 2009 12:12 AM

    They deserved that win..Bills played very well against a top team..
    Special Teams Disaster strikes again..
    I think the Pats are gonna have a tough year in that division. No more cake walks

  17. jds says: Sep 15, 2009 12:15 AM

    Watch both NE touchdowns. Do any push offs remind you of anything?
    Bills must beat NE by 20 points to win fairly.
    As much as special teams coach is lauded, fire him. He has cost at least 4 games in two years. Don’t go into details, they are stupid.
    TV announcers are at rock bottom. They say that certain players who were injured most of last season had “off seasons” last year (most of Bills defence). Come on, I volunteer to do better commentary than the crap we get.
    Is it possible for anyone to actually watch the screen?

  18. Agamemnon says: Sep 15, 2009 12:18 AM

    I though the ball thrown Owens’ way in the first half was inc….dropped.

    When T.O. says something stupid it gets covered like the President’s been shot. When T.O. leaves without any comment he gets an article about it and tons of comments wondering when he’s gonna say something.
    And people wonder why this guy’s an egomaniac.

  23. stanjam says: Sep 15, 2009 12:50 AM

    The defining thing about the Bills tonight, and the thing that separates teams like the Bills, the Chargers etc from teams like the Patriots and Steelers, came on that kickoff that was fumbled.
    The player could have downed it for a touchback (forget his name, but he is a very good kickoff return guy), he SHOULD have taken a knee, which would have led to the game ending. If he were thinking about the team he WOULD have taken a knee. Instead he was thinking about the return, about HIS stats, and HIS opportunity, and it cost them the game.
    Teams like the Pats don’t tend to do that, and when it happens the entire team lets you know that it is the wrong way to think. That is why teams like the Pats and Steelers tend to be on the next level, they think about the team and the win, not about their stats or personal glory. Makes me think of TO, and how he is upset. But is he more upset that the team lost, or that he didn’t get the opportunities he would have liked? That will tell you the difference about the player. Once Moss would have thought about his chances at glory. Tonight he was patient, sucked it up, and took a lot of short passes late in the game, bacause the Pats needed to do that to win.

    —————
    He’s not obligated to talk to her after the game, and she’s trying to interview the guy while he’s looking to shake the other players’ hands. He told her he was going to the locker room (because he told her, “I’m running straight in”) and she ignored him and tried to ask him a question. He was nice enough to oblige her; she was pushy enough to make him stop. Unless you expect these guys to stop for every reporter that asks them something.

  25. praveen says: Sep 15, 2009 2:17 AM

    Today was a good illustration why the Raiders and Bills have sucked recently. Both had defenses that were controlling the other offense for most of the game. Then they give up 4TDs combined in the closing minutes of both games.
    The Bills game obviously was much worse. Even if the returner wanted to kill a few secs instead of taking the obvious kneel down for a touchback, what was he thinking trying to fight for an extra yard? He should have fallen at first touch.
    But the coaching staff obviously prepared the team poorly and here is another piece of evidence. Just look at how bad the clock management was on the final Bills drive. Trent should have been looking at throwing that ball to the turf near a WR if he didnt have time to get a good throw in instead of scrambling like a fool killing a few seconds and a timeout. There just didn’t seem to be any plan. Dick Juaron is one lucky guy.

  26. VonClausewitz says: Sep 15, 2009 2:26 AM

    The Bills controlled and almost beat the arguably the best team in the league. Now they know how good they are. You can count on that mistake not happening again.

  27. Pastabelly says: Sep 15, 2009 5:41 AM

    Tom Brady has a lot to be upset about (horrible pick six and happy feet) and O’Brien shouldn’t be calling the offensive plays anymore. Those short passing plays and slow setting up run plays created too many third and fourth down situations and too much margin for error. Josh McDaniels’ more intermediate passing game is what the Patriots need. Not sure if O’Brien get blame or Matt Light for being a human turnstile in the first half. Yeah, great comeback against a team they should have blown out.

  28. slutnuts says: Sep 15, 2009 7:48 AM

    brady a jerk for running away from kolber? come buddy. first he’s trying to shake hands and she’s pestering him like a little sibling, then when she finally hassles him enough for him to stop she asks such a deep question. something along the lines of “how did it feel to comeback and win the game after being injured all year?” really suze. thats the best you got? go back to making out with namath.
    –was it me or did it seem like brady knew the question was so mundane that he pretended not to hear it so she would ask him something a little more insightful.

  29. KaiserSoze says: Sep 15, 2009 8:07 AM

    For a guy coming off a season ending injury last year, Brady looked, eh, OK. But the Pats are in for a long season. They were behind by 11 with only 5 to go, and needed divine intervention to pull out a win over a 7-9 team from last year.
    Bottom line, the Pats didn’t win it, the Bills LOST it.

  30. killachap says: Sep 15, 2009 8:18 AM

    I personally am more stunned by the Pats and the Chargers than by the Bills and the Raiders. I mean come on, all of the so called experts, and even myself predicted blowouts in these 2 games and they appeared to be warm up games much like you would see in a College football week 1 matchups. The fact that the Chargers and the Pats couldnt destroy these 2 teams, along with the Steelers and Colts not winning too convincingly, it may be an interesting and exciting season in the AFC.

  31. bobinpuertorico says: Sep 15, 2009 8:31 AM

    As a long time Bills fan, this game is just a reminder that the season is basically over. There will be no playoffs and there will probably be another losing record. The reason this is so clear is that the Bills lost because they were poorly coached and as long as Dick Jauron is there the coaching will not improve. Demetrius Bell twice was hit with procedure calls that wiped out long gains, because he was not coach where to line up. When the first two-point conversion attempt by the Patriots was intercepted, there was no attempt to run it out, which might have earned two points for the Bills. McKelvin was not told to play it safe and down the ball in the end zone, even though the Bills had their “hands team” in, so blocking would be poor. Conversely, the Patriots knew enough to hold McKelvin up long enough for them to pull the ball free from him. You never see the Bills doing something like that. It all goes back to Ralph Wilson’s long held belief that you never pay for a good coach, but you take what you can get when you pay your head coach what other teams pay their offensive and defensive coordinators.

  32. PFTiswhatitis says: Sep 15, 2009 8:44 AM

    I thought the Bills looked much better when they played the Pats first time last year (in NE). This game last night was clouded by the fact that the Pats came out so rusty. They missed an easy FG, gave the Bills 7 with that little lob INT and Brady sucked the entire 1st half. They failed to score 7 in the Red Zone too. The Pats were handing the game to the Bills and in the end they took it back. Ugly all around.

  33. Floriosagenius says: Sep 15, 2009 8:51 AM

    As a Patriots fan, I was relieved to see the Bills screw this one up.
    Buffalo played one helluva game, and if Fred Jackson doesn’t remain the starter, there’s something wrong with Jauron.
    T.O. deserves everything that comes his way, both praise and criticism; at least he stays out of jail *cough* Chris Henry *cough* and real trouble.
    I hope our Defense improves, and that Jerod Mayo is ok.

  34. overkil2 says: Sep 15, 2009 8:58 AM

    Wow, throwing a game away like that. You have to give the NE D credit for coming up with that sack in the last 20 seconds of the game though.
    I think the best thing that can happen for the Bills is that the lose and lose a lot. They need a new coach.

  35. ras says: Sep 15, 2009 9:00 AM

    1. – All you Patriot haters need to get a life (and a job probably).
    2. – The Bills played a great game on both sides of the ball, but this is what the NFL is all about – CLOSING OUT THE GAME. There is 60 minutes on the clock for a reason. Playing only 54 good ones will not win any games.
    3. – The Pats really need to step it up on D. If Mayo is out, they may be in trouble.

  36. mwiles19 says: Sep 15, 2009 9:05 AM

    Brady always has been, always will be, and is a total douchebag. First of all, he didn’t win that game for the Patriots. A special teams debacle won them that game so get off his nuts. The Patriots almost lost to the freakin’ Bills, and should have lost. If that doesn’t tell you how “great” your team is, nothing will.

    The Steelers beat a team, with the best record in football last year (13-3) on their turf.

  40. Patsfan1776 says: Sep 15, 2009 9:35 AM

    I hope the Pats offense improves. We couldn’t score a 2-point conversion in 2 attempts? Put the ball on the 2 yrd line and they can’t get it across? Pathetic!

  42. AlexMac says: Sep 15, 2009 10:07 AM

    The kick returner DID THE RIGHT THING by running the ball out of the endzone. There was 2:05 on the clock, and by coming out he took a timeout away from the Pats.
    Now, he was a complete idiot for not falling down the second he was touched, but not for running it out.

  43. footballnut says: Sep 15, 2009 10:16 AM

    And that my friends is why they are the Bills…
    Great come back for the Pats and winning a game they had no business winning.
    Sort of brings back memories of 01 when David Patten fumbled the ball while being knocked unconscious, and Buffalo picking the fumble up and returning if for a TD making the score 15-12…then the review came and it was ruled Patten was out of bounds when he fell on the fumble thus making it a dead ball. Just fate of some sort coming in the Pats favor…just like last night when you never see anyone coming out of the end zone with 2 minutes and the lead.
    The Bills played a hell of a game but thankfully the Pats pulled the victory out. Think of it this way…the top four teams in the AFC just barely won in week 1. SD, Pitt, NE and Indy all pulled the victory near the end.

    Another buffon blinded by hatred but not bringing a single relevant point to the table.
    Brady is a total douchebag? Wow, really hard hitting observation there. Second, seeing as how he THREW 2 TD’s in the final minutes, obviously he did win them the game, along with Watson, special teams and defense. Third, it’s the freakin’ NFL, and any team can lose to any team any given week. Man, you are stupid.

    Comaprison of these close victories to the Pittsburgh one is invalid. Steelers played the Titans and it was expected to be a close game. Pats and Chargers should have won by a bigger margin.
    Having said that, Pats got their wakeup call just in time. This kind of upset was caused by the Bills choking magnificently and Brady coming alive at the most clutch time. once the Pats recovered that fumble I knew it was over.
    This loss was not just a case of a fumble This team is badly coached as evidenced by the confusion shown by Trent on the final drive. What is he doing scrambling on that final drive? He should have looked to throw that ball at the feet of any of his WRs incase he didnt feel like he had an open WR.
    I was watching the SD game and the refs seemed to be very liberal in not calling intentional grounding on Rivers even from the pocket and the nearest WR not really being that close to the ball.

  48. FireDickNow says: Sep 15, 2009 10:43 AM

    Take a knee. Get one first down. Win the Game! Great time to not be conservative Jauron. He has got to go. FireDickNow

  49. Duke says: Sep 15, 2009 10:45 AM

    Yes, McKelvin screwed up. But, more damaging were the two close first down calls on the previous Patriots drive. The refs basically GAVE the drive to the Pats! Those spots were extremely generous, and both should have been measured. Why that dips*#t Jauron didn’t challenge either is beyond me. Just shows how much the refs (and the media) are continually in the Pats pocket (tuck rule, anyone?).
    And, yes, Brady is a douchebag. He learned from the best.

  50. dizil003 says: Sep 15, 2009 10:58 AM

    Does Leodis McKelvin have a brain? In an interview he said he would take it out of the endzone again. Does he not know that the Bills had the lead? I mean is he retarded? He lost the game by himself. Nobody else lost that game, it was over. If you put Brady on the 30 with 2 minutes left there is a 99 percent chance he will score on any Defense. Everyone should thank that brainless talent for that horrible loss that us Bills fans won’t get over for a while..

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    Exactly. If he takes a knee, odds are its three and out, punt, and the Pats get the ball back around midfield with a timeout and about 1:45 left on the clock, versus taking the ball out, starting the drive under two minutes, burning all NE’s timeouts and giving them the ball back with a minute left.
    McKelvin’s error was that he got greedy and didn’t go down once he was stopped.

  52. redsquare says: Sep 15, 2009 11:00 AM

    For you guys defending Brady’s post-game behavior: he was being asked questions by the *network that broadcast the game*. This *always* happens after televised games.
    Seems the only reason to run off in such a discourteous way is because he was really feeling not good about something. Perhaps his team’s incredibly sketchy performance?

  53. footballnut says: Sep 15, 2009 11:00 AM

    Yeah OK Duke that’s why they flagged Wilfork when he had Edwards wrapped up around the thighs, yeah you’re right the refs are always for the Pats…

    Pats fan here. Brady is the best (ever) but the Pats played like crap and they know it. The Bills will be a good team this year with that d-line and QB. This could be their “best” loss ever, like the Miami game was to the Pats a few years back. Anybody complaining about push-offs or the refs favoring the pats is full of it. The pats got screwed for two key 15 yard penalties that were horrible.

  58. Duke says: Sep 15, 2009 12:04 PM

    Brady learned his douchebagitis from his daddy Belichik, not Bledsoe, you bloody moron. Real classy guy, that Brady.
    The calls on Wilfolk & Thomas were a result of the new qb protection rules. Case closed.
    Yeah, I know the yellow tv line is not completely accurate. But two close first down calls in a row? Please. The refs enabled the Pats momentum.
    I’m not a Bills fan, but I do despise the Pats, Brady, and Belichik. Can you tell? Nevertheless, the Bills got jobbed. Now, we’ll have no end of that “Captain Comeback” crap. (retch)

    “The kick returner DID THE RIGHT THING by running the ball out of the endzone. There was 2:05 on the clock, and by coming out he took a timeout away from the Pats.”
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    Exactly. If he takes a knee, odds are its three and out, punt, and the Pats get the ball back around midfield with a timeout and about 1:45 left on the clock, versus taking the ball out, starting the drive under two minutes, burning all NE’s timeouts and giving them the ball back with a minute left.
    McKelvin’s error was that he got greedy and didn’t go down once he was stopped

    Did you watch the previous Bills’ possession? You know the one that they marched down the field and scored a TD on? If you are the OC or HC then you have to feel good about your chances to at least get 1 first down and take a lot of time off the clock.

    At least TO didn’t literally run away from the media like Brady ran away from Suzy Kolber.
    That was low class making suzy jog next to him to ask him a question. She had to practically cut him off just to get him to slow down enough to talk.
    I’m guessing ESPN will edit that part so as not to show Brady for the jerk he is.
    —————
    He’s not obligated to talk to her after the game, and she’s trying to interview the guy while he’s looking to shake the other players’ hands. He told her he was going to the locker room (because he told her, “I’m running straight in”) and she ignored him and tried to ask him a question. He was nice enough to oblige her; she was pushy enough to make him stop. Unless you expect these guys to stop for every reporter that asks them something.

    I sure did. Completely different situation though.
    How many coaches have the balls to not play it safe under two minutes when the other team has all 3 timeouts?
