In the first game against the NY Jets, the Bills had 190 rushing yards on 42 rushing attempts 4.5 yards per carry average.  Against the Panthers, the BIlls ran for 77 yards on 28 attempts a 2.8 YPC average. It got worse against Denver with the best RB in the league held to 1.5 YPC avg.  It sure looks broken to me!

 

This team is set up to be a run-first team that needs to run to win games to help set up the passing game and keeps the defense off the field. 

 

Like I said, this team can't rely on the opponent turning the ball over three times due to stupidity every game. Those three turnovers were huge for the Bills.

 

8.5 underdogs against the Falcons in Atlanta seems about right. 

It's not broken at all. This team ran up against the best two run defenses in the league the last two games. I bet you wont see 1.5 ypc again. I expect close to 180 yards rushing against the Falcons next weekend.

We are a dropped pass / bad throw away from 3 and 0. Who called that?

Or we are a non-called unsportsmanlike flag away from 1-2....  Perspective is a mofo.

 

I am liking these Bills though.

Impossible to predict.  What key injuries will the Bills have and what injuries will opponents have?  If Shady gets a hammie and misses four games, it's over.  Who knows what will happen.

I'm going to re-evaluate after 8 games.

That's big of you. I'm going to go with 10 wins, but I reserve the right to re-evaluate after 16 games.

Just a week ago -
It's time to see what Peterman can do
This coaching staff ( Dennison ) is horrible
We have the worst WR's in the NFL
OL zone blocking blah blah blah
Amazing what one win can do

I never stated any of the above. WR group would be better with Watkins no doubt but Gaines can play.

One game at a time but my confidence in this Defense and coaching staff has me very optimistic that we might be a legit NFL club. If we could get this running game back to it's former self the sky is the limit. This is what I actually expected to see from a Rex Ryan coached team 2 years ago on D.

I got crushed here for saying despite the numbers against the Jets, the running game didn't look all that impressive.

Two weeks later, it's a shell of what it was last year. They need to make some adjustments.

And yet, in the fourth quarter, when the Broncs knew we were going to run to eat clock, they could not prevent us from getting first downs.

I still see an 7-9 8-8 team..

 

If we pull off 2 on the road here then I will revise but this team is the typical Bills middle of the road team we've seen IMO

 

But again I need a few more games to make a final call

I originally predicted 9-7 while leaning more 8-8 than 10-6..

 

So far, the D is a little better than expected with the O is a little worse.

I'll stick with 9-7.

I believe Tyrod made a big play with his legs early on a third down to keep that drive alive.

That's true, and I actually agree with you that the running game is not as strong as it was last year. I think that is partly because of Glenn's injury and partly because we've come up against three very good front sevens.
