25.

 

Nine... nine... god, I hate how ESPN does that. But, the one chick in there is sooooo cute.

 

As I grew up in Buffalo, you can expect that there will likely be many NFL induction in here... as the Bills franchise has been nothing but pain and misery. And we'll start that here with #9.

 

Everyone has a player they really hate. Everyone has a player they know is just absolutely horrible from the first second they watch them. And then they even exceed your expections. Everyone has that player on their team that makes a gazillion dollars, and basically ruins their franchise. There's people you just look at their picture, and you know they're dumb as dirt, and useless in all facets of life. It's not often that there's one player who manages to combine all these traits into one big steaming pile of suck. But, there's no doubting this dufus easily fits all the aforementioned descriptions...

9) Rob Johnson. His entire career. Which was like 20 minutes of playtime in Buffalo.

 

Ugh. Just thinking about him makes me cringe.

 

From the start here in Buffalo, things just never seemed to add up... but, this was still the time when we all had faith in the Bills management, so we trusted John "Bubblechin" Butler (RIP) making this trade.

 

The Bills traded their 1st round pick (9th overall, or close to that) and 4th round pick for Robert. Note that Robert himself was only a 4th round pick, and his only notable NFL experience was a strong EXHIBITION game for Jacksonville. Now, the Bills were desperate for QB... it was a few years since Kelly, and horror of the Todd Collins experiment still lingered in our brains... but, this just didn't add up. Plus, we're giving this asshole a 5-year, $25 million deal, and it would cripple Buffalo capwise in the future.

 

But, whatever, HE COULDN'T BE WORSE THAN TODD "DEER IN HEADLIGHTS" COLLINS!!!

 

Oh, I didn't mention that 1st round pick for Jacksonville ended up being Fred Taylor. While the Bills had Antowain Smith, and some other jackasses at RB. But, again, whatever.

 

As for Robert's career... well, there wasn't much of it. He was 7-14 as a starter, while lifetime little backup scrub Doug Flutie was 21-9 with basically the same team. He got totally overshadowed by Doug Fucking Flutie. When you're infinitely more annoying than Flutie Flakes, you really need to lock yourself in some basement, far away from humanity. And in those 7 wins, I'll bet he had a "concussion" in about 5 of those. The fragile surfer boi managed to get hurt every fucking game. And he was the master of simply standing in the pocket while getting sacked 10+ a game, while blaming his offensive line for every loss. Rob was slick in his press conferences, also... managing lots of uh's, and even the occasional duh.

 

But, Robert teaches us all an important lesson in life...

 

If you can somehow bullshit stupid people into giving you many millions of dollars, it doesn't really matter after that. Screw everyone over. The world is yours.

 

Someday, I will do what Rob did.

Yeah, he was awful. But, I do appreciate that he set up the Titans for the Music City Miracle. (Likewise, I despise John Elway, but if he hadn't driven Stanford down the field against Cal in '82, the greatest play in the history of sports never would have happened.)

I agree with this choice 100% leena. I hate Rob Johnson for life, I STILL think the bills should sign Doug Flutie....and start him!

Behold my explanation.

 

When Wycheck released the ball, his right foot was right on the inside of the 25 yard line. He released the ball with an almost fully extended sidearm. A line from the ball to his shoulder is about 1/2 yard. And so, he released it at about the 25 1/2. Dyson caught it at about the 25 1/4.

 

Ethan, rebuttal?

Wycheck released the ball from the 24 1/2 yard line, dyson caught it at the 25, forward pass, game over. I don't care about ESPN computer generated recreation with Wycheck's 5 foot long perfect side arm. 100% bullshit.

Computer generated recreation? Okay, that's a stretch...

No, I'm not saying that ESPN altered the actual live footage, but they did a computer animation to "prove" that it was legal. Wycheck's arm was about 2 yards long. It was just propaganda spewed by ESPN probably on orders from the league. You can plainly see in the live footage it was a forward pass. The NFL was just covering their ass cuz they know Buffalo got totally screwed. Or it may have been intentional. I have a theory about the NFL conspiring against the Bills, but more specifically Doug Flutie.

That Oak/Miami game started out promising. Fiedler completed his 1st few passes in a row, the team was moving down field, and all of a sudden he throws a pick returned for a TD. Total momentum swing. The team shot their wad the week before against Indy.

That Rob Johnson got that kind of a deal from Buffalo shows that alot of GM's will reach, hoping to grab someone that looks very pedestrian, but upon coming to a new city, will look like the second coming of Tom Brady. Kind of reminds me of the Lions going after Scott 'Schlub' Mitchell.
