I'm falling in love with my camera and taking photos everywhere I go. That, combined with my passions for politics, sports, religion and other things we all agree on, makes this blog persist.

Has The J.P. Losman Era Begun?


The Buffalo Bills season is over. Will Drew Bledsoe be back?

Jerry Sullivan of the Buffalo News says yes, and that it's not a good thing.

Sullivan writes:

Bledsoe will probably go into next season as the starter. It's hard to imagine the Bills yanking him now. Tom Donahoe, the president and general manager, believes in Bledsoe and wants to show the world he was right to bring him here.

The Bills have a big investment in Losman, too. They'll argue that he didn't have a real rookie season and needs a full year of practice. It's a good point. Donahoe created a situation where Bledsoe is his best chance to win, and that's not likely to change by the start of next season.



Bledsoe's skills are declining, and he is not the reason why the Bills had a winning season this year.

J.P. Losman will probably stink up the joint the first year he plays, but he needs the experience. Drew Bledsoe just doesn't have it any more.

I like Bledsoe. He first couple of years as a Bills QB he played very well. But it's only going to get worse for Drew, and there is a #1 draft pick sitting on the bench.

He is a class act, and a great athlete. But he is probably a backup quarterback now.

Losman's got to play. It's the only way he'll learn.

The future is now.

More sports.

Bring back Flutie!!! I'm out of Flutie Flakes, and he had more rushing yards in one game against Marino than Marino had in his whole career!!

Nominal, nice to see a rationale sports fan out there. You've characterized Bledsoe beautifully. He is indeed a "class act" and indeed "a great athlete", but he also very much indeedy (as Bill Simmons would say) has a pitchfork sticking out of his back. The man is D-U-N. Let the Losman era begin.

By the way, Jets 27-17. You heard it here first.

I'm a huge fan of Flutie (I still wear his Bills jersey at the bar I go to), as he was a rare player. I don't like Losman wearing his number, but that's another story.

I think Bledsoe can be a Neil O'Donnell type, who is a backup for a few years, plays a few games, and extends his career a bit. Again, he's a great guy and I wish him the best.

If the ball bounces their way, the Jets can win...but they are the worst AFC playoff team this year.
