No more music, boys—I want a win

I commend these boys on their charitable and musical pursuits, but are they still practicing football? Maybe all football players were forced to take band class in middle school, but everyone seems to be a musician these days.
Back in October, Bills safety Bryan Scott shot an interview—possibly via Skype—with Player Perspective online. The site seems to be an interview haven where players and former players get their brains picked about their personal lives, game re-caps and whatever else is new. This interview was shot back when the Bills were 4-2 in the season, but following the interview (and the bye week) they continued to go 1-7—ouch. Does anyone else get the feeling like we’re intruding on an eHarmony first date?
Take a look at the interview with Scott here:
Scott’s debut single “Dedication” is an inspirational song that seems to have had an impact on a lot of people. The song itself is pretty impressive, but as I watch it I can’t help but think that I would rather he—and the rest of the team—focus on football. In conjunction with the song, Scott is also hosting a “Show Your Dedication” contest where a lucky grand prize winner will receive two tickets to the Super Bowl—yes, the actual Super Bowl.
While I think that tickets to the Super Bowl are one of the best prizes any sports fan could vie for, I would rather that he —and the rest of the Bills—be playing in the big game instead of giving away tickets to it.
Here is the music video to Scott’s single:
To be honest, I can’t hate on the fact that a lot of Buffalo Bills are taking time out of their lives to work with charities and bring awareness to the right causes. That is something extraordinary that they should really be commended for. But the life-long Bills fan in me just wants to see a few more wins on the record instead of debut music videos. I want the best of both worlds. I want a winning Buffalo Bills team and I want them to be music superstars. Maybe it’s too much to ask?
The Bills know that regardless of the outcome for each season, the whole city stands behind our team. We’ve been here all these years for the losing seasons, just imagine what we’re going to be like for the winning ones.
