Is this just a coincidence???....

Did the drafting of RB W. McGimpy have anything to do with this???...

Maybe it was in McGimpy's/Rosensnake's contract. LOL!!!!

I can see it now....

Rosensnake : "Whoever signs Willis, if they use artificial turf, must change their field surface immediately!!!......"

"It's in his contract!!!"...:lol: :lol: :lol:

PHINZ RULE!!!!!:D

is this true? if so what kind of surface are they going to? the synthetic stuff like philly? and when will it be happening?
If it is true i think it is great! nobody should be playing on that crap astroturf.

Is this the "flubber" stuff that they have in Seattle? If so, all I've heard are good things about it. From what I understand it's actually a solid alternative to grass for cold weather teams. It's about time.

turf is not your problem. Ricky ran for 220 yards. It's the cold.

Ricky ran for 220 in the cold also... that must not be our problem.

well what are they changing it to ? whatever it is I am happy if it is not turf

you pointed out that the turf wasn't our problem because ricky ran for alot... that it must be the cold, so i pointed out that it was in the cold that he ran for those yards. so that logic isn't working.
also we lost in minny... where it was nice and warm in the dome.. so it must not be just the cold... but they do have turf...
really i think it is more mental and coaching then it is cold or turf or anything else.

Its all about class, baby! I cant wait till McGahee is back and tearin up soem dolphin D! I dont know if you guys caught his warning to the rest of the nfl and especially the dolphins!

Be AFRAID BE VERY AFRAID:

"You should ask the Dolphins if they're worried about that," McGahee says when asked about playing his hometown team twice a year. "They ain't going to be too happy. It's bad news, too, for everybody else that didn't pick me."


The voice of a true champion! I wouldnt want to get into his way on the field!
I love this guy already!!!!!

Soon enough Willis! soon enough! Until then we just gonna have to let travis take a turn at shreddin the dolphin d!

To All Bills Fans : Be Afraid....Be Very Afraid!!!!

Next year, after RB T. Henry demands a trade, the Bills will be stuck with "The Gimp" in 2004. He'll then go down in pre-season, and the Bills will have nobody!!!.....

WOOOOO HOOOOO!!!!!

PHINZ RULE!!!!

where does the mental part of the game come from? it is from coaching.
you can't coach them to have more talent... you have to coach them on how to play the mental part of the game.

Man the sky must be falling, I'm in total agreement with a fan from a team in the AFC EAST.

Personally I hope WM recovers just enough to never play a down. And hopefully he gets a nice signing bonus to go with it and it sets him up for life. :)

come on guys, i'm just really excited about willis! you're right i really dont know how he will pan out, nobody does! But it is just great having him on my team because of the amazing upside he could bring! The guy was just purely amazing when I watched him tear up the syracuse D at the carrier dome! Just absolute amazing speed! And I truly believe he will be back and healthy! just ask terry allen!

But once again BE AFRAID BE VERY AFRAID!:evil:

Why does Willis want to stick it to Miami so bad? Its not like we passed him, or we were gonna draft him.. I mean why would a team with a probowl runningback draft an inj ... Oh.. wait..

Hahah! What an idiot! "apptitude" is spelled aptitude, look it up genius! I love it when you get some loser questioning your education and intelligence based on some words typed on a computer screen! Get real buddy!

Oops , sorry zevo. Go Bills.

Gottahave, everyone else but you think that the weather was the reason why you lost to us last year. Everyone knows your team can't play in December.

If the turf was the reason why you can't play in buffalo then telll me, why did the fins beat us at buffalo in 2000 in the same turf we used last year? Same goes with the years before that.


Don't tell me aside from Lucas and the snow you are now adding the turf as an excuse.

ya think zach, jr., surtain, madison, Jt and co. are scared? :lol: :lol:

if i were a bills fan, i would be scared when that first big hit on that left knee is firmly planted. Take this to the bank, mcgahee is no edgerrin.

Your right his is no edge! He is 100x better! I really dont even think the two compare! eDGE Is a lazy thug! Willis is a conditioning freak!

I think you misunderstood me.. I was trying to say that the turf wasn't a problem, but niether was the weather. I may be one of the few that won't use the weather as an excuse for that game. Both teams were in the same weather. Ricky was eating you guys up as much as you got to the secondary.
I used the minny example to show you that weather is NOT the reason we lose in Dec.. nor is it the turf. Minny was nice and warm inside the dome and they were a team we should have easily beat. We were pounding on NE in foxboro in the freezing cold. The cold is not a problem... turf is not a problem... the problem is mental.. hopefully someone like Jr. can come in and help them get past it. the talent is there. they just need to execute at the crucial times.

weather had nothing to do with it. we had a crap QB and then Jay comes in totally rusty and stinks the place up just as much. hopefully he's healthy and ready to go but I'd still like to see Griese here. He throws a great ball unfortunately the mental part needs fixing.

Well Homer, don't you think that could happen to Ricky as well? Anyone can blow their knee at any point. I would never wish that on anyone , but it can happen. Duh!

I heard about it from a friend, then posted a poll that asked Bills and Fin fans if they heard about it and what their preferance was for a playing surface (it's in the Lounge). Either Tuesday or Wednsday ESPN said the Bills may switch to either grass or fake grass like Detroit has in 04.

Of course, leave it to a bills fan to say their unproven rookie is head over heals better than a proven veteran in this league. Guy, you are really out of it. You can't talk about Edge like that, next thing I'll hear from you is that Willis is WAY better than Ricky Williams.:rolleyes:

Yep, it sure could happen to Ricky, but that is not in question here. Thing is, it HAPPENED to Willis, who has to come back. Most of the time, a knee is never the same, and a RB has to cut severely, and most damage is on the knees. Let's see what happens when Willis has to cut to save his life. Not wishing him harm, but let's just see what happens.
