As we all know, we've been fooled before.

I think we have two more wins if the offense played like they did earlier this year when playing Houston and the Colts. The offense has kind of disappeared and I am wondering what Gailey's done or hasn't done to allow defenses to stop us more regularly. Also I think the biggest change on defense is when Merriman came back it almost re-energized the defense. Just my thoughts about what we see happening. Some put it on Mario's wrist but the line actually played better before that. Dareus, Mario and all.

Shaw I always like your posts but I am old and I can never get past the score at the end of the game. If my team (Bills) is on the short end at the end of the game I don't take very much positive away from that game. That goes for the record as well. 4 and 7 stinks. Make the playoffs equals success. Miss them I'm not happy.
Welcome to Buffalo EJ Manuel!
The defense has been improving, particularly in the running game and on early downs. We remain abysmal in giving up plays on third down so the other team's offense can remain on the field. But improvement is improvement, and maybe third down defense will get better. That improvement is one of the reasons I'm wary of the notion of blowing up the team after the season. Maybe it really was an issue of the defense needing time to gel. We brought in some new players. We put a new DC in and had him install a new system. I know we thought that it was going to be a quick transition, but maybe we were wrong. I do know that teams which keep changing their coaching staff every three years willl never become good. I am among those who wanted the improvement of the Bills to be quicker than its been, and truth be told, I think both Nix and Gailey thought it would come quicker than it has. But maybe things are moving in the right direction after all. I think there are some things that have to change. I don't think Fitz has enough ability to remain the QB if the Bills have any notion of being really good, but I have no problems with Gailey's offensive system, unlike some around here. If the defense can solve the third down issues and continue the trend of better run defense and more pressure on the passer we might actually be really good next year.

They are beginning to play inferior competition, not to mention teams without highly regarded running games.
What are you missing?????
A top 10 defense...............put down the bottle because when you wake up tomorrow morning and read what you have written you are going to feel pretty foolish.
The very well may have the worst linebackers in the NFL, they are unsettled and inexperienced in the secondary and the d-line as a unit continues to underachieve.
It continues to amaze my how people get excited over nothing on this board.
If Marcus Easely plays tomorrow and catches a touchdown pass you will have him going to the HOF.
We are talking about professional athletes. They are paid to preform consistently. Do they make mistakes..........certainly! Do they have bad games.................buy all means.
But please stop getting excited over a play or two.
Next time I am at the board and a student understands the lesson, should I spike the chalk in triumph??? Or do you think maybe I should wait and see if all of them pass their final before I get to excited and accept that teacher of the year award!
Consistency..................until they start showing it, this remains a very poor football team and a really bad defense!
nice write up
What the fans are witnessing, is 1) getting A. Williams off the field which makes the team look better and
2) not pushing the other teams very hard (9 points against houston) allowing them to rest up and not push our defense hard. Which is why we lose the games. Its wishful thinking to think this team is on the verge of being top 10. But fans are entitled to believe what they want.
2011 - Smart posters warned everyone else, Fitzpatrick was a waste of a year. Now we all know.
2012 - Smart posters warned everyone else another season of Gailey was a waste of a year. Now we all know
2013 - Smart posters are warning everyone else another year of brandon/nix is a waste of a year. Next year we will all know.
