Following a 14-10 loss to the Patriots on Monday night, Bills defensive backs Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer had a joint press conference. While speaking to the media, they were asked if they were embarrassed they lost to a team that completed just two pass attempts.
It's safe to say that question didn't sit well with Hyde and Poyer.
Poyer immediately fired back at the reporter, saying "What kind of question is that?" Hyde had a similar reaction, replying "What are we doing, bro?"
Although the Bills gave up 222 rushing yards to the Patriots, Poyer wasn't discouraged by the team's performance. He felt as if the Bills' defense made enough stops to win on Monday night.
"We made stops when we had to. They had one big run. I mean, they’ve got good backs,” Poyer said. “They kept coming back to a couple runs. I mean, I don’t know how you want us to answer that question."
Before leaving the room, Hyde had a message for all the reporters in the building. He wants them to know that questions like that won't fly anymore.
“It’s respect. It’s all about respect,” Hyde said. “I come here every single week and I answer your questions truthfully, honestly. I appreciate you guys. Don’t do that. Don’t do that."
The Bills really needed to win on Monday night, so it's understandable why Hyde and Poyer are so frustrated. It's also hard to blame them for the loss considering the defense gave up just 14 points.
