isn't Peter King a Bills fan?  I like this team but we shouldn't be ranked higher than the Jets after they beat us and then beat the Pats yesterday (even though it was a gift from the refs on that FG)

This is the same Peter King who had Trent Edwards as his offensive MVP through the first quarter of the 2008 season.

Naw, he favors NE usually.

King loves him some Kiko... didn't know he was a Bills fan, thought he was a Pats & Giants fan (from NJ, currently lives in Boston). He stays objective though, IMO. Actually, although the Jets beat the Bills, King is looking at it from a wider lens. The Jets have been involved in some BAD games where they looked horrendous. The Bills have not.

I might be wrong about him being a Bills fan but I remember reading A LOT of his columns through the years where he backs the Bills when other reporters don't give us the time of day

Denver/Seattle/SF/NO/GB
....
Giants/Bucs/Raiders
Vikings/Jags

You can almost draw 6-27 out of a hat.  I might just bet the underdog in every game.

Well,... he was legitimately in that conversation for that finite window of time.... then it unraveled for him

In some of the other rankings, does it bother anyone else that the teams we have beat are all ranked ahead of us? I don't get it. At least Peter King seems to get it. All of our games have come down to the last possession and we have showed that we can compete with any team out there. We aren't any easy win anymore and if overrated teams like NO and KC think they are going to walk all over us I think they will be surprised

Yes, he is going by the "eye test" and not the record. He is forced to put KC 1st because they are the only undefeated team, but not sure they are the best team in the league. They are good - but this is essentially the same team that was the worst in the league one year ago. Clearly, changing HC and QB has major impact on a team especially when  the new QB is a veteran and not a rookie. But Alex Smith got benched for a reason in SF and Reid got fired for a reason in Phil. Sooner or later, that will bear itself out.

God, Peter King is the absolute worst. Refer to KSK Fun with Peter King if you're baffled by the comment.

No, gotta look at body of work man.  Especially when the Head-to-head game is a narrow win for the home team.
Good luck compiling a 1-32 list where nobody has lost to anyone below them.

He doesnt live in boston anymore...moved back to NJ.

He ranks teams based on a neutral field who he feels would win.  Because the Jets beat the Bills in NY/NJ doesnt matter much since it was a close game.

Oh, didn't realize that. I used to read his MMQB column weekly when it was on SI.com and have wanted to check out his new microsite but just haven't had the time. I actually like his stuff, although it can be long-winded. I just skip to the parts that interest me.

That is the big picture. The Bills have been in the game all season. Considering our youth and injury card I'd say we ain't too bad. If we can build on things and close out a few more, who knows we might go 7-9 and pick 12th. And given our schedule that would be an accomplishment.

Peter King should start printing out resumes.
