NFLN lol too many ex- patriots on their staff for my liking. That aside, it's in the NFLs best interest to keep fans paying attention. Calling the AFCE anything but a one-horse race is laughable.

 

 

I don't think he says we're beating NE...but he thinks we're the 2nd best in the division....that is a good sign if we're hoping for a WC this year....

I'm keeping my expectations very low. I'll be thrilled if none of our draft picks get injured. I'll be ecstatic if Sammy can heal and play 16 games. Sweeping NYJ/Mia would be nice. I'm cautiously optimistic about TyRod but realize he's probably not our long term franchise qb. Just a guy with the "wind at his back" could lead this team to 10 wins max! The true excitement for Bills fans will come when B&B retire....

Did the gurus at NFL Network consider the Fish having a running back that ran from Buffalo to Detroit against us last year?

Why not? The Bills have only had 1 losing season in the last 3. We are exactly .500 get those 3 seasons. That sounds like a team that's not far off to me.

Maybe a new coach and a better defense can ish us over the top?

Anyway, I sure hope so.

Better D, Taylor in a better system, why not red,

 

I hope so to buddy

NFL Network had us ...

 

 

When Trump says something, is it reported, "Today, the United States said, "Yadda yadda yadda."

 

That's not the NFL Network. It's a guy named Adam Schein. Who is employed by the NFL Network but is not the network itself.

 

It's nice, but ...

If we somehow have a better record than 8-8 with losing so much of the roster I will be amazed. We lost Woods and Gilmore and a few other solid contributors, add in the schedule and Taylor's limitations as a passer and I will be amazed if we are 8-8. Eric Wood, Kyle Williams and Taylor should've been released for cap purposes. Then draft your rookie QB in 2018 and over pay the top FA WR to play with Sammy.

This should've been a rebuilding year and a chance at a top QB in 2018, 8-8 forever.

Nobody's contending for the East assuming Brady is healthy and playing at the same level he has been.

2nd in the East wayyy behind the Patriots? Sure I can see that. Was never impressed with the Dolphins.

Schedule is always hard to tell what it really is. We have had years we expected a tough schedule and it was easy and vise versa. I remember in 2015 thinking the Eagles and Skins would be cake walk games ..and both beat us with the Skins winning the division.

 

The QBs on the schedule do concern me and the defense not rebounding last year makes it hard to believe that is a strength of the team. That said you really don't know much about the schedule until halfway through the year if at all..

 

If the schedule was somehow playing New England 16 times I'd hope you would admit that would be tougher than playing Cleveland 16 times.

It's a nice surprise for me...they usually tend to ignore the Bills....nice to see that someone there is paying attention.


The NFL Network does not have the Bills "as an AFCE contender." The article lists a team in everyone division for the sake of the article; nowhere does it assert that the Bills have a legitimate chance of taking the division from the Patriots.

As if Gilmore is some great addition to bolster their chances. This just in, they would win just as many games in 2017 without SG as they would with him.
