Yesterday some college kids were taking in the final day of Bills training camp in Rochester, NY. Being the chill bros they are, they decided to throw a few bon mots the way of quarterback Trent Edwards. Reportedly, they loudly predicted Edwards would soon be benched in favor of Brian Brohm (inevitable). They even went as far as casting aspersions on Edwards’ choice of hairstyle and personal grooming.
None of this sat well with new Bills coach Chan Gailey who loudly chastised the group of rowdies and instructed Bills players to withhold autographs from the group. Gailey reportedly told them “”If you dog one of us, you dog all of us.”
Now, if these hecklers had any game at all, this would be where the story begins. But apparently, there was a lack of stones among these wiseacres, because they allowed themselves to be publicly called out by a man who just a year ago was deemed unfit to be offensive coordinator for the Kansas City Chiefs after just three preseason games. Any heckler worth his salt could have pulled any of these beauties from their bag:
“OH NOES, THE GUY WHO GOT SHITCANNED BY GEORGIA TECH SAYS WE CAN’T HAVE ROSCOE PARRISH’S AUTOGRAPH”
“THE AFC EAST IS GOING TO BE A LITTLE TOUGHER THAN THE ACC COASTAL DIVISION, DROOPY DOG”
“YOU DARE DENY ME RIAN LINDELL’S AUTOGRAPH? HOW WILL I PUT MY CHILDREN THROUGH COLLEGE NOW???”
“IT’S ABOOT TIME FOR THE FACE-OFF, EH?” (future Toronto Bills heckle)
