Bills-Patriots one-liners

Bills KR Leodis McKelvin said he had no regrets about bringing a kickoff out of the end zone in the fourth quarter even after he fumbled it to set up the Patriots’ winning touchdown in the 25-24 loss.

Bills QB Trent Edwards was 12 of 25 for 215 yards and two touchdowns leading the no-huddle offense.

For the most part, the new-look Bills offensive line looked good in their debut performance.

Edwards was sacked twice on the final series, however, which helped grind comeback hopes into dust.

Bills RB Fred Jackson had an effective night, picking up 57 yards on the ground and 83 receiving yards. 

Patriots QB Tom Brady was 39 of 53 for 378 yards and an interception, and two fourth-quarter touchdown passes to lead a comeback win.

Both of those touchdown passes were caught by TE Benjamin Watson, which equals his total for the 2008 season.

Patriots WR Randy Moss had 12 catches and finished the night 13th all-time on the NFL’s career reception leader list.

Said Patriots DE Ty Warren, “I think we pulled it out by the skin of our teeth, but at the same
time, a win is a win.  Nobody is that blind to say it wasn’t
mistake-free.”

The Patriots honored their 50th anniversary team at halftime, which had LB Tedy Bruschi back in a Patriots jersey two weeks after his retirement.

    Leodis McKelvin can kiss my ass.

    “…Bills KR Leodis McKelvin said he had no regrets …”
    He’d better get some quick
    Fool single-handedly lost a winnable game.

    “…Bills KR Leodis McKelvin said he had no regrets …”
    Probably because his demonstrated intelligence level with bringing the kick out of the endzone also means he’s not capable of the mental gymnastics necessary to actually form ‘regrets’.
    That had to be one of the most bone headed plays I’ve seen a several years. As Bugs Bunny often said, “What a maroon!”

    Momentum into next week for the Patriots’ offensive line.

    You are ahead 5 points with 2 minutes left to the game. The other team needs to get the ball back, and fast. They will be looking to hit hard and strip the ball. You have the chance to take a knee for a touchback. The chances are you will win the game because your running offense has been doing well, and you SHOULD be able to pick up a first down, and end the game. At the very least you will be able to punt after a three and out and put the other team a ways down the field.
    What do you do? Do you do what is best for the team, and take a knee? Or do you take a chance and try to help out your stats by returning the ball, because you were so good at it last year? Answer is apparently: Do the selfish team, because my stats and personal glory come before the team’s success. This kills so many NFL teams, and is part of the reason why teams like the Pats and Steelers are so much better than other teams like the Bills and Chargers. Some teams think about the team, and others think about their individual stats and glory.

    Yes, McKelvin made a mistake. If he had kneeled, he would have avoided the disaster that ensued. HOWEVER. Brady orchestrated two two-score drives in less than two minutes that resulted in the W. It was exactly what they needed to do to win the game. Crazy.

    … and unlike a certain drunk Jets QB, Tom Brady clearly has no desire to kiss Suzy Kobler. He couldn’t get away from her quick enough!

    Talent is there on both sides but the difference between a championship organization like the Patriots and a mediocre organization like the Bills is that one does the smart thing in most situations, the other does not.
    The mental mistakes have to be cut down (not only McKelvin’s decision but also the stupid penalties that hurt their drives and field position), for the Bills to improve.

    However if you have the ball, you can at the very least run a lot of time off the clock and force NE to use it’s time out. The last drive the Bills had prior to the NE TD was a good one.
    McKelvin is an idiot. Plain and simple. I feel for the Buffalo fans.

    compare McKelvin’s SECOND fumble to Brandon Stokely on sunday.
    That is the difference between a guy who plays football and a football player.

    How nice of Buffalo to make this game interesting, more so than most usual 5th pre-season games!
    But in the end, Tom Brady remembered that he was Tom Brady, and the Bills remembered that they were, well, the Buffalo Bills.
    Yes, dude had the intelligence of a retarded ant in running that kick out of the endzone when his team was already ahead and nothing good NEEDED to come out of him. The fact that the next day he says he’d do it again just shows that he has a very low intellect and still thinks “effort” is better than “success”. He’ll never be a true “team” player, which is why he’ll only have a career in places like Buffalo where the head coach coddles idiots like this and says he too admires their heart.
    Hey coach, you don’t get paid for teaching players that heart matters most. You get paid for WINNING FOOTBALL GAMES!
    The Bills will suck as long as Wilson allows both of these people to keep their jobs.
