I am writing in response to a comment made by former San Francisco 49er coach Bill Walsh. While announcing the Denver Broncos-Detroit Lions game on Thanksgiving Day, Dick Enberg asked Walsh if he thought there was an AFC team that could defeat an NFC team in the Super Bowl. Walsh stated that maybe the Los Angeles Raiders could do this. Enberg then asked Walsh if he felt that the Buffalo Bills could do the same. Walsh said he hadn't seen enough of the Bills this season to make that decision.
On Nov. 11, when the Bills defeated the Phoenix Cardinals by a score of 45-14, Walsh said something along the lines of, "now people can start to believe that the Buffalo Bills are for real." This comment made no sense because the week before, the Bills defeated the Cleveland Browns by a score of 42-0. Before that, they were on a five-game winning streak.
If Walsh hadn't seen enough of the Bills on Nov. 22, what gave him the right to make the comment on Nov. 11?
Bill Walsh obviously doesn't like the Buffalo Bills. If he did, he wouldn't make hypocritical comments. I am convinced now more than ever that he should think before he speaks.
