Well one thing is for Sure, it's the same old Buffaloe. I watched their game
with the Titians today. And all I can say is that they are constant is their inability to defend against the run.

The left side of the defense is still are porous as last year. The Titans owned them. They spread them out and then ran all over them. And the also picked
heavily on the left corner back. Troy Vencent!

The Bills defense only got better when the Titans first stringers came off the
field. I feel so bad for them... Not!

bills had one of the best defenses in the NFL last season, but regardless, this is a pretty stupid thread


how do you not expect for bills fans to lash out against us and make fun of us when you guys make threads dedicated to making fun of them?

They had the #2 defense last year. When the season starts, I have no worries that our D will be just fine. We had backups in with the starters early on yesterday, including Stamer (#57), Bannan (#97), and Kelsay (#90). They were obviously experimenting early on, and didn't care so much about the scoreboard.

And you also can't really say "same old Bills", because we saw some things we haven't seen in a while yesterday, like a solid o-line, a well-timed offense, and bledsoe even effectively scrambled a couple of times! The offense is starting to come together.

It did suck to lose Travis Henry though. You guys have no idea what it's like to lose your starting runningback...oh wait, sure you do! Luckily, we have this no-name backup, Willis Mcga-something or other (heard of him?). So we'll just have to hope he can shoulder the preseason load for the next couple of weeks while Travis rests up and gets healthy.

like a solid o-line


:roflmao: :roflmao: :roflmao:

Their o-line will be their downfall this year. Its in worse shape than the Dolphins o-line. This is a line that is returning 4 starters and several backups from last year. They should be farther along at this point.

All week long, the local talk radio has been hammering the o-line. RT, C, and LG are a mess. The LT has been hurt.

W. McGahee 11 28 1 11
T. Henry 7 27 0 22

McGahee and Henry each has one decent run. Other than that, Henry was 6 carries for 5 yards and McGahee was 10 carries for 17 yds.

That is not good enough.

Did I say ours has? DUH!!!that would be 51 sacks Homer :D


Your OL was worse than ours last year. The only reason why we had more sacks than you did is because Fiedler can scramble and you ran more . Did you see what happened to Griese when he was in there?

We opened up more holes for Henry than yours did for RW. Henry had less than 100 yds than RW considering RW had more than 100 attempts than Henry last year. Henry also played w/ a broken leg and torn rib cartilage and played 1 game less than RW.


So, in essense, if our OL sucks and you do not deny your OL has proven to be any better than what you had last year, how's is our OL in worse shape than yours? Only a homer would base the status of an OL in preseason and to think that you had a total of 98 yds the last preseason game you had. DUH!!!!!!

Your OL opened up more holes because you threw the ball more and kept opposing defenses more honest. Your offense sucked and could not score in TDs in many many games. You are returning the same starters except for the RG. Now that sounds like a plan.....Oh, I remember, its was all the fault of GW and KG. :lol: The worst QB in the AFCE last year was Bledsoe and he is still there. Moulds is old and fragile (he's hurt again). Travis can't stay healthy (he's hurt again). Willis is not ready and he admits it. Josh Reed still disappoints and Lee Evans can't beat him out.

At least our OL has a chance of improving. Your OL returns with 4 of 5 crappy starters from last year. No team has proven anything yet because the season has not started.

Good luck at 6-10 this year.

Its PRESEASON.

Both teams had bad olines year. The Fins added 4 new starters, the Bills added 1 (and he is having injury problems already). My justification is that the Bills did not upgrade their personnel as much as the Fins did.

NOTHING IS PROVEN YET, but I am more optimistic about the Fins line because they at least attempted to improve.

Apart from one 22 yd carry, Henry has 12 carries for 11 yds. Even 13 carries for 33 yds is not good. Does that mean he's going to suck this year? NO, ITS PRESEASON.

so how the hell can you compare our OL to yours by saying our OL is in worse shape . Having 4 new starters does not mean your OL is better than ours especially since they look horrible so far compared to ours. There is no basis to campare both Ol's other than what has been shown in preseason. DUH.

Next time you make a statement like that make sure you have something to back up your statement. If this were in the smack forum, that would be understandable.

Since when are opinions limited to the smack forum? Was there a TOS change?

In addition to not bringing in sufficient talent, Mike Williams has been demoted, his replacement got hurt, Jennings has been hurt, Pucillo got demoted, then Tucker got demoted, the new RG is already nursing an injury, and the lone stable position (center) is weak.

Inspite the demotions, injuries, Our OL looked a lot better than yours and although preseason is the only basis I have I never stated our OL is in better shape than yours or will be except that it has played better than yours so far. Are there concerns? Sure just like yours .

The only thing I failed at was penetrating your thick skull.

The Fins started the preseason with:

Smith, James, McKinney, Jerman,St Clair

Their current starting 5 are:

Smith, James, McKinney, Whitley, St Clair

The RG position has been the only position that has been juggled.

The Bills have had several injuries and several demotions due to poor play.

Take away Henry's 22 yd run and tell me what you get in the first two games.
who cares. He's proven to run for more than 1300/season. Not a single rb you have in your roster has proven capable. Geez, are you gonna start comparing Henry to Rusell now?

No. Henry is a proven back with better size.

oops I meant will Russell be a better back than Willis? :D

No. Willis is bigger and looks to have good vision and cutback ability. He doesn't look like he has regained his speed yet, but even in his current form, he should be a better back than Russell or anyone else currently on the Fins roster.

He won't be a special player unless he regains some more speed. Before his injury he looked to be similar to Tomlinson. At his current speed, he reminds me more of a young Eddie George.

Bills fans mostly agree that offensive line is still a sore spot. McNally is a good coach but it's going to take a little while for everything to get fixed. Little injuries have prevented all five starters from practicing together until this week. But there are some good signs. Trey Teague has actually played very well this preseason. Mike Williams came in out of shape and way overweight, but he has lost 30 lbs and is moving much better. Villarreal has been playing solid football. Lawrence Smith looks like he may be an upgrade over Pucillo. He's going to struggle for a while with good DTs because he hasn't had any starting experience but he'll get better through the season. Jennings will be fine. He just needs to stay healthy and avoid the little nicks that have bothered him the last couple years.

It takes time to completely change a team, and that's not really desirable any way. The Bills will have something of a different offensive scheme and Drew Bledsoe is getting rid of the ball quicker. Though they've had some difficulty because of lack of continuity on the line, they appear far more committed to the run.. On defence while stopping the run has been a problem, the team has shown the ability to force turnovers. That is new this year.
