Donte Whitner tired of Bills being laughingstocks

The Green Bay Packers whipped the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, and Bills safety Donte Whitner says the Packers did more than that.

According to Whitner, the Packers acted like a bunch of schoolyard bullies and laughed at the Bills late in the game.

The Packers were laughing at us,” Whitner said. “Aaron Rodgers and a lot of those guys were laughing at us toward the end of the football game and that never feels good.”

Whitner says that if the Bills don’t step up their quality of play, they’re going to get laughed at on Sunday against the Patriots — because New England players have done it before.

“Yeah, by the end of the fourth quarter they’re laughing at us,” Whitner said of a loss to the Patriots last year.

Overall, Whitner says, the Bills need to play better so they don’t give more teams like the Packers and Patriots a chance to act like the Cheerios picking on New Directions in the hallways of William McKinley High School on Glee.

“We want to get things turned around, but at the same time it’s football teams with grown men laughing at other grown men on the football field,” he said. “That happened to us in the ball game last week and it happens every time we play New England.”

    huuuuuh????………

  2. I love PFT. One of my favorite sites on the web. But please, NEVER reference Glee in an article again.
    Thanks,
    Concerned Citizen

  3. “Overall, Whitner says, the Bills need to play better so they don’t give more teams like the Packers and Patriots a chance to act like the Cheerios picking on New Directions in the hallways of William McKinley High School on Glee. ”
    I think I speak for your entire audience when I say “WHAT???”

  4. Lol so what exactly were we laughing at Mr Whitner? Please tell because I’m feeling in the mood for a laugh..
    The Packers for the most part aren’t inconsiderate, selfish, attention grabbers. I know teams aren’t perfect, but there are a lot of classy, well mannered and respected players on that team. And to name Rodgers, above all the players is hilarious.
    If something was funny, they’re going to laugh. Anybody in that position would. Players go out there and want to have a good time, especially when things are going their way.
    If Rodgers or anybody started pointing fingers and shouting wow you suck! hahahahah! that was terrible!!!
    Then you can talk. Until then, focus on your team… I think the Bills have a lot more priorities to address with their team. And maybe you won’t get “laughed” at anymore..

  5. “… a chance to act like the Cheerios picking on New Directions in the hallways of William McKinley High School on Glee.”
    What?

  6. So at least one player on that team seems to care. The rest are probably happy getting paid boatloads of cash to get laughed at in the fourth quarter.

  7. When your putting CJ Spiller as your 3rd back acourse your gonna be the laughing stalk of the nfl…The guy can play so let him lay.

  8. “Teacher! The Packers were being mean to US!”
    Here’s a suggestion, perhaps the Bills should find a way to suck “less” so that opposing teams don’t laugh at them.
    Winning shuts everybody up…

  9. I watched the game and saw no pointing and laughing by Packer players. Our organization doesn’t run that way and I hope this punk gives an apology.

  10. Chan Gailey was a desperation hire than couldn’t even hold down his offensive coordinator postion for the whole season last year. I don’t want to heap more onto a truly unfortunate franchise, but damn…get your shit together Ralph.

  11. I think most of you guys are missing the point. He’s not crying about the Packers and Pats laughing at them and hoping someone makes them stop, he’s frustrated because his team is so bad.
    I was laughing pretty hard myself reading this article. As a previous post said most of the “stars” on GB are pretty mild-mannered guys, so if a team like that is laughing at the competition, I guess the competition must be terrible.

  12. as a packer fan, i don’t like hearing them sound immature like this. Have fun out there but no need to kick a team while there down like that, hopefully he misinterpreted the source of the laughs.. in anycase glee? that whole sentence makes no sense to me at all

  13. It’s hard not to laugh at a team when Trent “Checkdown” Edwards is their starting QB. And the team’s highly touted first round RB is rotting on the bench.
    The Bills are a trainwreck right now and there’s really no end in sight.

  14. Let them laugh, thats a classless and GUTLESS thing to do in football…
    no respect for the game
    teams go thru ups and downs…
    were the pats thinking stuff was funny when they got ran outta their own building by Joe Flacco in last years playoffs?
    or Was aaron rodgers laughing when Brett Favre came to Green Bay and put a whooping on them last year?
    -no worries donte and bills fans, teams rise and fall, its just the nature of the business, I’m sure teams in the AFC weren’t laughing when the bills went to 4 straight SB’s, regardless of them not winning in them, 4 STRAIGHT SB appearences will never happen again…

  15. How can you watch the Bills play and NOT laugh?
    If they are meant as a joke, then its funny. If they are meant as legit, it is even funnier.

  16. Hey, No1BillsFan ?
    I.
    Can’t.
    Hear.
    You.
    which is surprising, as you were quite “vocal” earlier in the season…

  17. he singles out Aaron Rodgers on a predominantly black football team. It’s obvious that Whitner is a racist.

  18. Florio – How much are the Ills spending this year on salaries and bonuses? You said the Bucs were around $81M. Are the Ills much higher than that? Only Stroud and Evans make large amounts of money besides CJ’s bonus – too bad he won’t be capable of earning it due to lack of size and skill and O line!

  19. Glee?
    What happened? – you didn’t have a good “Grey’s Anatomy”, “Project Runway” or “The Bachelor” association for this piece so you you reached down deep for “Glee”?
    You didn’t have much credibility, but whatever you had is gone. Candy ass.

  20. Typical Packers and their fans……..they love to dish it out……but don’t have the spine to take it……wait til’ they play a real team this year.

  21. WTF is Glee? The Bills can play better than they have so far. Pats will probably win but it will not be an easy win. Bills need to use Spiller better than they have. The Dolphins shut him down by taking away the outside…throw some swing passes (they are similar to checkdowns so that should not be much of a problem) to Spiller and let him shake a few guys for big gains. He is not a bruising RB…he reminds me of Eric Metcalf. He can impact the game on returns and on offense but he won’t unless they gameplan to showcase his strengths

  22. As a Packer fan, I can’t condone taunting and laughing at an opponent, no matter how poorly they play. Hopefully, Donte is exaggerating a bit.
    I can, however, laugh at a team that keeps drafting a RB #1, especially when they now move him to 3rd string. Doesn’t make much sense to me, given they need help at virtually every other position.
    Good Luck Bills fans!

  23. Donte,
    This is to inform you that you have hereby been officially nominated for deepintosports.com’s coveted Golden Tampon Award–given monthly to the athlete who displays vaginica tendenciel.
    In other words you are a huge pussy.
    Seriously, dude….Where is your pride?

  24. MrHumble, Vikes fans do nothing but talk trash, and when their team starts to SUCK, they get all defensive. Typical Viking fans… love to dish it out… spineless asshats.

  25. To know *anything* about the show Glee just shows you’re a closet homosexual.
    Not that there’s anything wrong with that. #justsayin

    ==================================
    Riiiiight, says the guy whose team deliberately ran up the score in the playoffs against Dallas last year, just because they could. Yup, tons of class there!
    Honestly, this guy has no idea *why* they were laughing. Maybe they were laughing at Minnesota losing again like the rest of us? Who knows?

  27. PFT has just jumped from NBC to Bravo.
    Next up: MDS tells you why CJ Spiller’s wizardry reminds him of the Magical Mr. Mistoffelees from Cats!

    I watched the game and saw none of this. Witner is a crybaby and has an arrest record to boot. His poor record with authority (he needed to be tazed) only supports that this man is nothing more than a liar trying to get sympathy.
    This guy needs to apologize. I understand he wants to get his team emotional, but this isn’t the way to do ti.

  29. Let me get this straight: Donte Whitner is upset because the Bills’ opponents are laughing @ them & acting like bullies? As others have mentioned, if the Bills quit sucking-their opponents won’t have a reason to laugh @ them. Of course, it doesn’t help if Donte Whitner whines about it. Put your big girl panties on Donte, and deal with it. He just gave everyone 1 more reason to laugh @ his team. Nice job, Donte “Whiner”

    Ah should be some good games,when they play the LIONS-BEARS since they are the only real teams in the North.

  31. Are you serious man? Glee? How dare you insult us by thinking that anybody here has seen a second of that crap. haha

  32. – Whitner obviously did not invent this and he’s not whining. He’s frustrated with his own team’s play, and frustrated, and probably feeling, “we don’t need this!”
    – He specifies the two teams involved, and specifically mentions Aaron. I expect his view of what was going on, on the field, was a tad better than that of any fan checking things out from a distance – without having anything specific to look for in the first place. Don’t recall seeing anything appear in the press re such stuff between Whitner & Rodgers, etc., until now. I believe what he’s saying must have happened. And I don’t think it’s likely that it was a “misunderstanding” as at least one commenter has suggested.
    – Although these are, chronologically at least, adults, but some are only marginally in that category. But they’re supposed to be behaving AS IF they were mature anyway. They’re supposed to be sports professionals, and when that kind of behavior (in school, it might have been called bullying or instigating or jeering) comes in the door, professionalism goes out the window. Even the League recognizes that, and has a penalty for (mocking or whatever it’s called).
    – As a Pack fan, it’s a little disturbing to hear. The Pack generally isn’t known for this kind of thing (that I’ve heard anything about). It’s not classy. It’s also stupid, and shortsighted – could come back to bite ’em. Aaron, e.g., didn’t play so well in EITHER game that he should be setting himself up as superior to anybody.
    Last I looked, we were all human, and somebody doing this one day, could find himself deservedly “being done to” the next.
    It’s wrong. Period. I’m sorry it happened.

  33. Donte, if Aaron Rodgers was laughing at the Bills late in the game, then you should have take out his knee. If the Patriots do the same, then Tom Brady’s knee should become your target. Until Buddy Nix and Ralph Wilson get a decent LT and/or RT, you will have no offense, the defense will be on the field too much and the Bills will be laughed at. You can’t control the decisions of Nix and Wilson, but you certainly can direct your aggression at targets on the field.

  34. Bills fans are laughing at Donte, because they drafted him too high, he cannot stay on the field because of injuries every year, and he has never played up to his potential.
    So STFU Donte.
    Do something about it.

  35. Yea… well… if the shoe fits.
    I played on a midget league team and we played so rough ( BUT ALWAYS FAIR) that players would be on the field crying.
    Mike Crawford told us to “gang tackle” & “go through one of us if that is what it takes to get to the ball carrier”.
    We punished all who touched the ball… and these little kids (which we were too) were crying.
    Our practices were HELL !
    Games were a walk through.
    This is a wussy league with overpaid Diva’s on it.
    Hit those whom wish to hit you harder or shut up and go and cry.
    Oh but the $ they are paid we can’t risk it….
    and that is why your getting punished.
    1/2 our practice was spent doing some serious loosening up and stretching.
    The other 1/2 was insane violence.
    I LOVED IT.
    We didn’t laugh when those kids cried… we shook their hands at the end of the game and respectfully walked off.
    These Diva’s could learn from us but the $ intoxicates them… and the owners don’t want the risk.

  36. Hey, bobinpuertorico. Now that would be really good sportsmanship, now wouldn’t it? When you have something intelligent to share then do so. If it is just going to be that idiotic, don’t share.

  37. Ah, Mission, wouldn’t the fact you know enough about the show Glee to characterize anyone who knows anything about it as a closet homosexual make you a … you know … closet homosexual? I must admit, I started this process laughing at the Bills for being laughed at, and at Donte (who I have to give props to for caring not to be laughed at) for pointing out they are getting laughed at, until I read your post and then I really started laughing because I was thinking you probably don’t know you hung yourself on your own petard, you ‘tard.

    Hey, who played QB on your team of midgets? It must have been a tough choice for coach Crawford because you all have foreheads that make you look like Peyton Manning.
    Kudos to you dudes by the way, you are AWESOME fu*k’n wrestlers.

    Cannot relate. No homo.

  40. Reasonable grasp at a straw there DirtPup, but it only takes seeing a preview once to know it’s a show for high school girls and their gay shopping buddies. I imagine you watch football since you frequent this site — and FOX broadcasts football — so you’ve seen these same previews.
    Luckily, I’m a pretty smart guy, so I was able to gather the above information (regarding homosexuality) without having to watch the show. Let me know how next week’s episode goes. Now I’m curious (oops, did I say ‘curious’?)
    Hope I didn’t strike a cord with you. I know there’s very little that’s off limits here, but I also don’t see a lot of anti-gay sentiment. I’ll be careful next time — you never know who you’re going to offend.

  41. @TheToolofTools
    Yeah I remember hearing about that. I thought you were going pro. I guess you were just too good and the competition wasnt enough. BTW, what ever happened to HOF’er Mike Crawford? I heard the Cowboys were interested in him………..

    ===================================
    The glee comment was put in for this fluffer.

  43. No one circles the wagons, Like the Buffalo….
    Ah, screw it!
    Those unis have to go! They look like something K-Mart produced in the seventies before real gear came available.

  44. Cry me a freakin’ river, Donte. Do you have any proof for the alleged laughter? Didn’t think so. The bills suck. It’s not because of you guys. It’s because of coaching, and management. You guys may want to clean house…and soon.

  45. “act like the Cheerios picking on New Directions in the hallways of William McKinley High School on Glee.”
    Wow.
    Time for a little self-reflection there Mr. Smith.
    Ask yourself a few questions:
    When someone offers you a bowl of fruit, do you always choose the banana?
    Do your socks always have to match your shirt?
    Do you like wrestling?
    Who is your favorite New Kid on the block?
    How many pairs of slippers do you own?
    Is your cat bigger than your dog?
    What smells better, a Lily or a Daffodil?
    If you even answered any of those questions, your probably gay, but I don’t think Florio would find anything wrong with that.

  46. A Glee reference… oooooo-k. MDS has definitely lost his mancard and earned a new nickname:
    Rooty Tooty
    ’cause you’re certainly Fresh and, uh, you know, FRUITY.

  47. Kudos – Donte………its about time somebody on the Bills stood up and tried to motivate them. Dick Jauron certainly didn’t and Chan doesn’t seem to be a motivator either. And why are all the Cheeseheads taking it personal?

  48. I loved this article!
    I dont know what Glee is, but the part about the Bills was a riot.
    It made me laugh…
    It made me cry…
    Oh yeah, actually, it didn’t make me cry.

  49. hell mds go the whole nine yards and tell us about all yer favorite shows on the lifetime channel…
    //////////////////
    no glove, no love…

  50. The friggin’ coach on this team is a laughing stock for not using his dynamic RB they drafted in the 1st round.
    HAHAHHA!
    HAHAHAHA!!!
    HAHAHAHA!!!!!!

  51. Well, if the Bills want to stop the laughing then their defense needs to smack someone in the mouth. The season has just begun. Let’s see how the team is playing at the end of October.
    GO STEELERS!

  52. I don’t know what the Patriots were laughing about last year. They needed a miracle to win the first game and they scored a FG in the entire second half.

  53. Aaron Rodgers and the Packers were NOT laughing at the Bills. (I saw the entire game).They were joking around and having fun because they had the game in hand by the 4th. Just young guys having fun.
    If you don’t like a team laughing and enjoying themselves on their sideline, play better you big baby.

  54. I really don’t know anything about Glee.. Is that a show on NBC?
    I really hope the Packers didn’t laugh at the Bill – I thought the Bill played very hard right to the end of the game. They could have quit but they didn’t.

  55. come on people you cant be that dumb to think that whitner really literally meant that they were pointing and laughing at the bills, that by its self seems dumb for grown men to do, what he meant is he is sick of his team getting blown out and being a laughing stock to other teams and being an easy win for other teams. but it doesnt get any easier against the PATS they dont need blow the pats out they just need something to build on goin into next week……baby steps buffalo

  56. Donte Whitner has been fined by the league a letter T from his last name.
    He shall be knows as
    Donte Whiner from here out
    (credit to Big Dan)

  57. What was the line from “The Natural”? Another brilliant find from our scouting system…
    Donte- #1, 2006. John McCargo, #1, 2006. Marshawn Lynch, #1, 2007. Leodis McKelvin, #1, 2008. Aaron Maybin, #1, 2008 (instead of Matthews, Cushing, Orakpo, they take a player who can’t get on the field for the 30th ranked run defense). Eric Wood #1, 2009. And…CJ Spiller, at #9 overall this year. The ONLY position on the team that they didn’t need help at. Even when they knew if they couldn’t sustain drives none of them would get enough carries. (9 three and outs in 27 possessions through 2 games, with the Pats and the Jets next).
    They promised to clean house, then interviewed 2 internal candidates for GM, hired one of them, were getting thanks but no thanks from position coaches who had never even been coordinators yet, hire a guy I didn’t know was still alive as head coach, have an owner who turns 92 shortly who won’t sell and has no succession plan in place, play in a tv market one spot ahead of Anchorage, and you wonder what happened to this team?

    Fail reading comprehension? That’s exactly what Whitner said. Teams are laughing at the Bills because they lose so much, and he’s SICK of that.
