Stephon Gilmore’s days of finishing in the basement of the AFC East are over, after joining the Patriots this offseason, he has a lot to look forward to, and will certainly be playing deeper into Winter than his former team.
Gilmore pointed out that a lot of his family will now be able to watch him play on national TV, something the Bills didn’t get to do very much:
My People finally going to get to see me play on tv. #Patsnation#aboutthattime

Bills fans didn’t like that subtle dig, as they threw a little tantrum:
Y'all can have him ✌🏼✌🏼 pic.twitter.com/Z3SoXuVCWX

I've watched you get torched on TV for years now. Maybe it's best they don't watch 😬🤷🏻♂️

You probably could have been doing more to ensure that on your last team, but sure… good for you, I guess.

Btw, on that video ☝🏼, Gilmore didn’t get any help from his safety, safety got caught with his pants down. That play right there is a product of bad coaching. Nothing more, nothing less…

Softest corner in the league

My God are these Bills fans salty or what. I guess when you’re all the way up in Buffalo and you get over 200″ of snow every Winter, it’ll make you irritable. If the guy stayed, they would have thought he was the greatest thing ever. But instead, he went to New England and they’re going to watch their guy absolutely dominate while they pray for a 6-10 season. It’s gotta be painful to suck that bad. We will see what Gilmore can do under this coaching staff, I think it’s safe to say he’s going to be an elite corner, especially with the core around him.
