The Good and the Bad of the HOF Game

By Chris

We’re strong believers in balance and karma.

So despite a Buffalo Bills loss in the Hall of Fame Game, we’re going to pick out some of the good that we saw, like the fact that no one was injured and that Rian Lindell’s leg is already in mid-season form.

Good: T.O.’s stat line: 2 catches, 27 yards.

Bad: Edwards’ stat line: 3-4, 34 yards, 1 Int (The interception hurts).

Good: The no-huddle offense looked efficient and the Bills can only become more comfortable running it.

Bad: No offensive touchdowns.

Good: Xavier Omon looked very good (11 carries, 36 yards).

Bad: Special teams gave up a touchdown (on a sick fake punt) and Bruce Hall muffed a punt return, causing a turnover.

Good: The jerseys. (Very good)

Bad: The lightning storm killed most of the fourth quarter on Channel 2.

Good: Leodis McKelvin’s interception.

Bad: The rest of McKelvin’s game. He frequently got burned and looked lost in coverage.

Good: Reggie Corner’s interception.

Bad: He’ll never have a nice word spoken about him on ESPN again.

Good: The run defense looked pretty good when out of the red zone.

Bad:
Andy Levitre got smoked on the play that led to Edwards’ interception. Hopefully he’s a quick learner.

Good:
Terrell Owens hasn’t flipped out yet.

Bad: Ralph Wilson in the booth with Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth. That was painful to watch.

Good: The officials’ uniforms. Awesome.

Bad: Aaron Maybin is still unsigned and it doesn’t look like that will be changing anytime soon.

Good: It’s only preseason.

Bad:
It’s only preseason.
