Season just started what do you think?

Bills fan here.

I'm always rooting for the Chiefs, but I may as well be rooting for Christopher Reeve to be revived and walk again.

Thrice 09-16-2008 02:17 PM

Ya I think a return of Superman is more likely this year

*cough*Tom Brady*cough*

debaserr 09-17-2008 01:24 PM

we could argue all day about this. but i'm right.

Thrice 09-17-2008 01:27 PM

was the best QB.
I like Reggie Wayne alot this year.
I dont believe in Joseph Addai what-so-ever though.

debaserr 09-17-2008 01:40 PM

its not addai. its our messed up line. 3(maybe 4) starters missing.

Saturday was a huge loss... Destabilised the whole line, and Addai is paying for it... He is solid and a goal ine beast, but I reckon Rhodes will be pretty prominent, especially early when the line is messed up...

Giants fan btw (Yes before last year as well)

but the Bills are going to be able to sqeeze in unnoticed to take the AFC East due to all the commotion around the division. they will get recognized when they go into the bye week 5-0.

None at all, only Indianapolis just built them a new billion dollar stadium so they would stay here. None whatsoever.

I had them at .500 preseason, should definitely get closer to a playoff berth now...

Pats have to take advantage of this weak schedule early on if they want to win the div...

Bills were playoff bound from the start, only because of their weak schedule and players that were put on IR last year are now starting. The Brady thing wont have much play until later on in the season, but I think it will make for a great battle in the AFC

The Pats running game looked like garbage, but I guess when they don't have Brady back there to distract D's it doesn't help... Cassel can throw the ball and will get a few TDs but willnot lead the team anywhere, and tbh I don't see where that leadership will come from. Their D is nothing special (Looked better than it was last year because teams were forced to throw against them)

And with the Browns playing like... well the Browns of old, they won't make it (Had them penned as 9-7). Jags look in trouble with their Oline... Reckon Bills can quite easily grab that 6th spot if nothing falls apart injury-wise... Ten also look good but against total garbage so far, dunno how they will be able to set up a consistent offensive threat.

did you see his only long pass to Moss?
he really cant throw the ball more than 20 yds, which doesnt matter much b/c of the system he is in.

He is clean enough to get passes off... Doesn't have to be huge long passes. Will suck for them when they will be behind, sort of like the Jets with Pennington.

Didn't say he could throw the ball long ;) :p:

Still believeing in Cassell? He is garbage in my eyes.

I had the Bills going 10-6 this year from the start, but I think they might blow that up only for the fact that they dont even play 6 more decent teams this year. Plus, the division is total garbage, thus decided after Miami just raped the Pats with redirect snaps all day.

Hardly sounds like I believe in him...

Buffalo looked decidedly average for much of the game against Oakland of all teams... Though I agree, looks an easy schedule...

How dumb was that defense? Every time they got caught out by the direct snap to Brown... Funny stuff actually... They were all so slow. Not looking good for what is meant to carry the team for the rest of the year...

Giants baby (Refer last page)

Looked pretty average today... Eli was solid, running game was solid... Guess it was only a matter of time before the real Cincy passing game stepped out, Palmer had a nice game with Housh and co. Despite getting 6 sacks on him or so.

A wins a wins a win at the end of the day... 3-0 can't complain. All gravy from here-on-in tbh considering last year :p

Id like to see a little Superbowl revenge this year...Maybe Lindell wont kick it wide right...ha ha

lol that would be an interesting matchup nearly 20 years on :p:

Now Carney/Tynes kicks it wide right... But we're ahead by 14 points so it doesn't matter anyway :D

Our team is pretty similar to those days (Smash mouth running game and good D with a solid QB)... Ya never know.... :p:

Browns are pissing me off

Start Brady!!!!!

Yeah was talking about this with a few mates...

The Oline has been a bit of a trouble, and DA has been under pressure, but half of his INT are purely misreads and bad throws... Those passes to Winslow were atrocious (13 targets, 2 catches but only 2 drops... Says a bit about DA's accuray)
Edwards can't catch for the life of him atm either...

Do you bring in Quinn this week though to face a weaker Cincy secondary with less preparation or do you wait another week and give Quinn the bye week to prepare for his start?

British_pharaoh 09-23-2008 08:55 AM

I'd say give him the bye week

DA might be able to get something going against a poor Bungles team.

but we're severely struggling with injuries, we have terrible linebackers and without Jones our secondary is even weaker. the defense overall is a shower of **** even with the Rodgers addition.

Braylon ahs done nothing so far on offense everything is going to KW2 (our only competent healthy receiver at the moment) we need JJ back sharpish

lucifer_sam 09-23-2008 11:29 AM

Is this what I think it is? An English fan of American football? You must be an expatriate.

When the season started, I was convinced we had a superb o-line. After seeing the wonderful finish on SUnday against the Eagles, I know now our o-line is the best on the league.

Thank God we traded Faneca last year.

debaserr 09-23-2008 11:48 AM

i knew the browns were in for a wakeup call. i knew there was no way anderson was going to play as well as he did last year.

British_pharaoh 09-23-2008 01:22 PM

no not an ex-pat

I love baseball and Basketball even more than proper football

I have distant relatives in Cleveland and saw an Indians game at the Jake (no unfortunately called Progressive Field)

and that was that
