Lately, Hit it & Quit it has been a lovefest. This week, not so much. Let's make this quick and as painless as possible.
Hit it! Fred Jackson. 99 yards. Great returns. The only thing that would have made this all perfect is if you were featured RB again--I think you could have had all those 200 rushing yards to yourself. I'm sorry, I don't know why nobody at One Bills Drive will listen to me, maybe next season.
Quit it! Ryan Fitzpatrick. You were doing SO well and I don't know what happened. Please, stop doing this to me. You're taking me on a non-consensual rollercoaster ride and I'd like to get off. Only 84 yards and an interception? What, were your way over 100 yard games from the last few weeks just a tease?
Hit it! Marshawn Lynch. Congratulations on your 84 yards, a season high, but I still don't think it counts when you've been horrible horribly inconsistent all season. If you're still around next season--which I'm not rooting for--and you collect yourself 84 yards or more a game, and actually convert first downs when we NEED you to, then I'll rethink my feelings for you.
Hit it! Terrell Owens. Love the TD, love your hats, love you.
Hit it! Defense. 4 second half interceptions that probably weren't on Sportscenter definitely caught my eye...and helped you snag the lead in the league. While your run D still needs some work, it's still far better than it was for 3/4 of the season.
Quit it! OLs. I haven't ragged on you guys in awhile. If you protect Fitzpatrick then he might actually have time to set up his passes correctly, therefore, completing them. (You know what that means, right? You're supposed to stop the guys who have different jerseys than you from charging at him, knocking the ball out of his hand, tackling him to the ground...this all sounds pretty familiar. I feel like I've said this before...oh yeah, like EVERY SINGLE WEEK FOR THE PAST 14 WEEKS!!!)
Hit it! Perry Fewell. I think any week you lead us to a win, especially on the road, is deserving of a pat on the back. I like you, I like you a lot. As soon as the season is over I'm totally devoting a large portion of the off season to convincing Ralph Wilson, everyone at One Bills Drive, and at the very least my readers and tweeps, that you're the man for head coach next season.
