There’s not a whole lot going on in the world of Buffalo sports this Tuesday, but I still managed to find a photo I consider very telling. This photo, used for a Visa advertisement on Facebook shows Trent Richardson of the Cleveland Browns on a run against the Bills.
How indicative is this photo of Buffalo’s run defense? The defensive end (Mario Williams) is on the ground, while the outside linebacker (Nick Barnett) is sealed inside and fruitlessly tries to stop Richardson with a weak arm tackle. Of course, the topper is the middle linebacker (Kelvin Sheppard) who’s completely caught in the middle with no impact on the play at all—a site for Sheppard that’s been far too familiar this season.
