So far we've beaten the Panthers, Ravens And Dolphins.. 3 quality teams that I think can beat or compete against anyone .. I feel good about our chances to win any game no matter who the opponent is. I think we get this W vs the Saints

GO BILLS!!!!!!!

I was with you up until the last sentence.  I believe in this team and feel they are quite a bit better than most give them credit for.  However, facing the Saints in NO is one of the hardest matchups in the NFL.  The Bills' second half schedule is much easier and I hope they will be able to take advantage of it after building up some toughness over the first half of the season.  

That being said, the only other game I picked the Bills to lose this season was the Ravens game and we know how that turned out....go Bills!

But I am sure you expected the Bills to beat the Browns.

Nothing wrong with that.  Winners expect to win and only accept defeat as an opportunity to improve.

Had the win against Miami come when the Fins were 3-0, then some would say it's a quality win. Miami has now lost 3 in a row after their 3-0 start, so it's hard to say how much of a "quality" team Miami is. In fact, we really won't know until December how good Miami really is.

Just look at the Jets - in Week 1, I figured they'd be 6-10 at best this year with a rookie QB, a defense that lost some players and probably wasn't as good anymore, and no offensive weapons that would scare anyone. They're now 4-3 and a game behind the division lead. Are they a quality team? It wouldn't look so on paper, but they've grinded out 4 wins so far.

Love the optimism, but I'd be shocked and surprised if the Bills went down to N.O. and won a game. It's just a tough road venue for any team, let alone a team trying to find themselves and with their two best offensive players at less than 100%. Not to mention the QB issue.  

That said, a couple weeks ago I said I couldn't wait to see Pettine's desired starting secondary FINALLY get on the field together. We get our chance this week. I have a hunch A Williams has a good game on Sunday.

GO BILLS!!!

That's unfair, but that's what people will think.

Similarly, people wil think our panthers win was weak because it was when the panthers weren't playing so well.

We just have to win the games we can win and not worry about what the pundits say. Every year a team seems to make the playoffs without a quality win. but who cares?

What's more likely: Miami drops four in a row? Or gets a sneaky win against the limping Pats*? :rolleyes:

Your looking at the wrong things on paper.

While the Jets lack in skill position players, their defense is very good and their offensive line is also solid. They also have very good coaching between Marty and Rex.

You can make any no name WR's/RB's look good no matter who they are if your offensive line and coaching is very good. This is seen in the Jets this year.

That's actually a good question Cat.
