It seems the optimisim on the board has skyrocketed with the new regime and now a new QB.  Has Russ Brandon worked his marketing magic again or are we justly optimistic?  I mean I must admit I'm hopeful, but ESPN has us at 30 in the power rankings.  A lot of people are saying Manuel was a major stretch as a first rounder and it took fans a lot of convincing themselves to like the Marrone hire.  Are we just wanting to believe the BS again and are just as gullible as they come?

Not enough options.

I feel some exciting football coming our way, and hopefully a return to respectability.

How about "Cautiously Optimistic" or "I Predict a Better W/L Record than Last Year"

We are suckers until proven otherwise. Its just hard to buy into anything without seeing any results.

I thought people might want more options and I thought about putting them but you can't pick both or take a "wait and see" approach or "cautiously optimistic".  What fun is that?  If I put those everybody would pick the safe ones.  I want some real answers.  Man up and make a prediction.

"Watch me pull a rabbit out of a hat!"

"But that trick NEVER works."

"Nothing up my sleeve.  PRESTO!.  I think I'm going to need a new hat."

This time for sure.

I don't think we make the playoffs....this year....but I feel pretty darn confident that we put a respectable product on the field this year.  I like the direction this team is heading.   This coaching staff has a much different feel to it, I LOVE what I've seen from Doug Marrone, and I really feel that we will be a serious contender within the next 2-3 years.

Maybe I'm a sucker?

If we lose this year it won't be because we have a HC who thinks a lame arm QB is a starter and also apparently knew nothing about what consituted a valid defense in the modern NFL.  Things have to be better.  If we lose, it won't be because of stupidity.

It's time for the willing suspension of disbelief. After 50 years of fandom, the beast of the Bills flies into my world anew and softly alights.  A little bit of Milton mixed with Jim Jones and I'm freakin' pumped for the season!
