After watching the Bills the past two days, I can tell you that they are a team that is VERY DANGEROUS and has the ability to not only kill us, but kill everyone in this league
I think you are very right 88. This is going to be a tough opener for us. Very tough.

preparation and execution of the offensive game plan will be the key.

We had better work on our blitz pick up, because it seemed they blitzed on nearly every down. It was kind of hard to tell whether the Bills were that good or that GB is really not very good these days. JP was just "Fair" IMO, Willis looked good. GB's Oline looked like ours in the 1st year, maybe even worse. The Bills looked like they MIGHT be vulnerable to a corner blitz from Dunta's side. This early in the seson it's too hard to tell though.

While Buffalo is getting a lot of recognition for what
they did well,and that may be justifyed,no one seems
to remember all the problems on offense.With a rookie
QB those problems won't be resolved immediatly.The
3-4 defense is difficult for QB's to read and with our
improved speed at linebacker running will be uphill
for McGahee when he becomes their only weapon.
Our offense poses many problems for even the best
defenses and should rank in the top 10 in the league.
This game may be close halfway into the 2cd quarter
but then Houston will pull away on their way to making
a statement.The Steelers will be the real test the following
week.

Keep in mind that as a member of the AFC East Buffalo faces the New England Patriots' D twice every year. Add to that the fact that their HC, Mularkey, was the OC for the Steelers a couple of years ago, and I'd imagine Buffalo has an abundance of experience in facing a 3-4 defense. I'm sure they've prepared Losman accordingly.

That's a good point but Buffalo failed to win either game
and with JP being a rookie i wouldn't expect them to do much
better this year.While their offense improved as the year
went on last year,in the off season they failed to get
another reciever to help Moulds and let Travis Henry and
Bledsoe leave.Expect the Bills "O" to shine at times but to
mostly struggle while Losman learns the ropes early on.
If McGahee reinjures a surgically repaired knee the loss of
Henry will be huge as they don't have much experience
at tailback.

The Bills didn't have much choice when it came to Henry. They could've kept him as a disgruntled 2nd string RB until his contract ran out, or they could trade him to a team in need of a RB get something for him and be rid of any type of lockerroom disturbance he might have been this season. I think Donahoe made the right move here by trading him while he could. He gets a first day draft pick out of the deal. While Losman is essientially a rookie his situation is very similar to Carson Palmer. Palmer performed pretty well as a first year starter, and it can be argued that JP might have better weapons around him on offense and of course he's got the benefit of a very good defense. Something Palmer didn't have. As far as the Bills addressing a need at the other WR position I think they did so in last years draft by picking up Lee Evans. He played very well last year as a rookie, and I'd expect him to only get better with time. They picked up Parrish in this past draft. He's got plenty of speed, and might be a viable option in the slot over the mediocre Reed. Much has been made about Buffalo's LT situation, and rightly so. If Gandy can protect Losman then it will lessen his growing pains this season. If he can't provide adequate protection it will be a tough year for JP. I think Peek should be able to bring enough pressure to JP to make him make a few mistakes, but Gandy might surprise. All in all Mularkey doesn't want the game to be riding on the performance of his young QB this early on in the season. He'll want to rely heavily on Willis, and its up to the Texans defense to stop him and force JP to beat them. If that happens I like our odds very much.
