Losing Brady pulls the other teams closer to them. Cassel's an unknown but the defense still has alot of talent. I don't think New England will be throwing up 40-50 points every week. Laurence Maroney who has been some what forgotten because New England threw the ball soo effectively last year now has to shoulder the load.

Randy Moss needs to stay healthy and be the Moss of last year and not the Moss who was in Oakland also.

Moss stays healthy if Cassels keeps him healthy.

Cassels has to get the passes to his recievers.

If Moss has to to put himself in vulnerable position he increases the chances of him getting shalacked by some head hunting DB or Linebacker.

I think Moss stays healthy if Moss stays happy. In Oakland I think he quit on the team and dogged it. I don't think it'll happen in New England because Oakland is a mess.

Well, yeah. Why wouldn't they be?

He knows deep down their team is screwed.

Lets be real.

The Patriots without Tom Brady JUST BARELY beat the worst team in the league at home.

Thier D sucks.

Thier OL is average.

Brady made that whole show go.

Beliechick is like 20 game below .500 without Brady as his QB.

I'm a Bills Fan.

Until someone knocks them off of their perch, they are still the team to beat. I think, AS OF NOW, my Bills have a damn good shot of stuffing those comments in his face.

But. We're TWO games in. That's why I say "as of now".

We took apart Seattle. And we beat Jax in the Florida heat (I live in Plantation) which is no easy task. So, I am more confident but no where near strutting.

Here's my take:

Don't rule out the Pats even with Ryan Leaf at QB. Beli-chick is too good at strategy (and extra-curricular game intelligence gathering, hee hee hee) to assume that the Pats are/were all-Brady.

I think the Bills, and remember, this is a biased poster, (of course I am, anyone that says they aren't is a liar) are the real deal. Take this to the bank. Buffalo's D will prove that it's better than NE's D.

Miami just isn't that good right now. You have too many gaping holes. But what scares me is the future. Another draft like this years, plus a key blue chipper FA or two to fill glaring holes and you guys could thump some skulls. And that said, remember, you have a LOT of youth on your team. You will get better as the year goes on. So don't savior that #1 pick. You're not gonna get it.

The Jets are a fraud. They barely beat your youth. In fact, methinks you guys handed them that game. And the Patriots beat them with Cassel. What would have happened if pretty boy were QB instead of Cassel? Look for the Jets to finish 7-9.

Pats are still the team to beat easily.

Lets not get soooo high on the Bills just yet. Just look at who their head coach is. That guy will screw it up sooner or later haha.

Dick Jauron will have a new contract by week 7. He's done a great job with the team. The team loves him and I'ld say most of the fanbase is behind what he's done so far.

And right now I am high on the Bills. They're playing really well. So well that they're high on themselves.

I can honestly say that they are playing BETTER than I expected and I can't believe how well Turk has done with the Offense.

Two last words for ya, Trent Edwards.

I do agree that they found a pretty good QB in Edwards but I am NOT sold on Jauron. He is really hit or miss.

I don't think Jauron's a good coach. Though he's going to get an extension before the end of the season IMO. The Bills should still wait it out. I'd expect it probably during the bye week or so. If the Bills can get to 5-0 at the break i'd be shocked if it didn't happen that week. Really their is no reason they shouldn't be atleast 4-1 at that point.

I've always been a Jauron fan. He can get overpaid primadonna pro athletes to play their hearts out for him which is not an easy thing to do. I don't always agree with the moves the Bills FO makes (okay, I mostly disagree), but hiring Jauron was one of their smartest. He gets the most bang for the buck from the talent he has of just about any team in the league. :up:

Now, if only the FO can sign Evans and extend Peters!
