I had us at 1-4 going into the bye, at 3-2 I don't think the D has been wasted.  I think we've taken advantage of the D and snagged 2 extra wins.

Tyrod seems to need his 1 go to guy.  He spent the off-season getting in sync with Sammy, when Sammy left he started to get in sync with Mathews, then on to Clay.  Now he needs to spend 2 weeks getting in sync with Zay (who did make 1 great catch out of bounds - he's got some skill).  If Tyrod and Zay can get on the same page and Tyrod runs more often I can see this being a playoff team.   With some good crowd noise and 2 strong defensive performances at home this team can make a move to 5-2.     Winston & Carr* (*or EJ) do not have great road records, Winston looked poor against New England at home.

Tyrod struggles on the road. He always starts games slowly. Rarely do we score on the opening drive. If they don't fix this offense soon and get some players back, we'll be looking at another 7 win season.


We scored on opening drives a lot when Lynn was calling the plays.

Bills looking for RB's?   We do need a backup, but WR is more pressing right now.  Can Dennison not succeed with Shady, Dennison needs to go!

exactly.  Dennison is the major (not the only, but major) problem with the offense.   Top running game, to Shady having 1 100 yard game.   Nonsense.


Bingo.

Bye week breaking news: I may actually get my garage cleaned out this weekend!

Should I push the boat out, or continue leaving my car out? I am tired of the boat taking up too much room, and I hate scraping ice on the car.

!@#$ winter.

Five weeks into the season, the Patriots are tied atop the AFC East with the Jets and Bills at 3-2. And don't forget about the 2-2 Dolphins.


Buffalo Bills (3-2)
Why they'll win division: A lot of defense and a little luck. Buffalo has not had much of the latter over its 17-year playoff drought, so it will need to find some good fortune in order to capture its first division title since 1995. A great place to start would be winning one or both games in December against the Patriots, who have a 29-5 record since 2000 against Buffalo. The Bills have the defense this season to slow down Brady, but Buffalo will need a few breaks on offense to have the result go their way. Getting swept by the Patriots would probably wipe out the Bills' chances of a division crown.
 
Why they won't win division: The floor for the Bills' offense is alarmingly low and could get worse if tight end Charles Clay's knee injury keeps him out long term. RB LeSean McCoy is on pace for the worst rushing average (3.2 yards per carry) of his career, while the Bills' wide receivers are averaging 4.8 receptions and 63.2 yards per game, which would be NFL worsts since at least 2001. -- Mike Rodak

Yes, we need receivers.  But they only help when you can get them the ball pretty consistently.

That's fine and dandy, but it's not an excuse to not upgrade those positions. The team needs to add the talent first. If it then doesn't lead to more production you look to change the QB.

They've gotta get some pass catchers. Clays injury created the biggest hole the passing game could possibly incur.

Gotta get some intermediate targets that can RAC when mismatched on LBs


We could have Julio and AJ Green and Tyrod still won't throw them the ball.

I would think if they were bring someone new in they would have done it already to get the the max amount of practice time needed. If they wait til next week then that will allow only a few days of prep time. So it's looking like "next man up".

 

It's crazy, we really need a couple WRs. Saw where they were possibly looking into RB's also which is a need as well. If they do bring in someone, I just hope they don't wait til the last minute to do it.

Do they have some of their servers overseas or something? Their site always locks up my machine at work.
