Sunday was a winnable game for the Bills. (So winnable, Florio and I both incorrectly took them to beat the Jaguars.) Buffalo jumped out to a 10-0 lead, but their defense collapsed against the Jaguars in a 36-26 loss. Their switch to a 3-4 defense has been a disaster.
Bills safety Donte Whitner was apoplectic after the game.
It’s terrible. It’s 0-5, the laughingstock of the National Football League. I think we are losing fans by the minute,”
Whitner said via Tim Graham of ESPN.com’s AFC East blog.
Ralph Wilson Stadium was rather empty on Sunday, and things may only get worse. Graham brings up the possibility of an 0-16 season, which is hard to imagine. The “easiest” games they have left are home contests against the Browns and Lions.
Still, there’s a reason there’s only been one 0-16 team. It’s hard to lose them all, no matter how big a laughingstock this Bills team has become.
