^^^^^I totally agree with this^^^^^

Carr, AJ and DD can't do it all. Bufalo was putting 8 men in the box on most first downs, because of the constant pattern of running on 1st downs. As for a WR that the opposition has to respect opposite of AJ, that player will be Mathis. This is just his first year. BY next year he should be ready for that role. In the meantime, AJ is getting doubled all day long and the opposing defenses will continue to get pressure up the middle on us so get used to him getting few catches unless we are playing a horrible defense.

^^^^Carr needs to look at more guys than just AJ and DD but lets face it, the protection our O-line is giving him is in most cases in just unacceptable. Did Carr have a bad game?? I have no clue he was running for his life the whole game.^^^^


I think the Texans Defense was fine. The problem was that the offense kept turing it over in Houston territory and the defense was on the field for a while. Not to mention Willis did not get a TD as well as all those WR. When the only TD comes from a OL player on a busted play, I would the defense will be fine.

^^^^Our Defense played OK. Yeah they ended up on the field too much. They need to create more turnovers.(our Offense needs to not cough the ball as much as today). Our D-line played BAD. The put no pressue at all on JP and the Bills were able to run the ball at will on us.^^^^

ST will improve with Mathis as the kick returner.

Last note. I wish we could get our 2nd and 3rd round picks back for P Buc and kept Glenn, because honestly I saw no difference in the way P Buc played and Aaron Glenn. The biggest difference is losing those picks. IMHO
^^^^The P Buc decision was not made for this year. Glen has one more year of good play left max. When your team has ZERO pass rush it makes your DBs look really bad.^^^^

From my observations, the comments here about your D getting tired from the poor play on O was definitely a valid statement.

But to those of you that say it will all be different when the BILLS face a better offense, I think you missed the real strength of this BILLS team. Bring it on... bring on a better offense. The BILLS D is far better than you are giving credit for... just listen to what your QB said about the BILLS D.

He gave it up on NFL Network and said he'd never faced such a dominating defense.

And David Carr is in NO WAY as bad a QB as he looked. He just faced a defense that KNOWS they have to be the BEST EVER to give our team a chance against the Patriots in the toughest division in the NFL with a QB who has to learn on the go. They KNOW they have to have JP's back while he gains some confidence.

Domanick Davis is an ELITE player. But it really hurt that there was apparently no one but Andre Johnson out there as a real threat. I have NOTHING but respect for Domanick and Andre.

The only negative I can say that I see in Carr that doesn't bode well from my viewpoint is that he doesn't seem to play with fire in his belly. Unfortunately, he reminds me of Dreadslow that way. He's got to come out and assert himself as the undisputed leader of the team. I've not seen that from him the few times I've seen him play.

And the CowPies are about to find out that the Statue of Liberty will lull them into thinking he's for real, until reality smacks him back down to the mediocre player he has ALWAYS been. The Patriots hoodwinked us into BILLieving in Dreadsoe. We got rolled, but got rid of him because we KNEW that the BILLS would ALWAYS be 0-2 against the Patriots with him at the helm. But I digress...

Your boy Carr needs someone to light a fire under him. Once that happens, he will blossom. Being "laid back" is a recipe for mediocrity in thei NFL in my opinion. Maybe this game will kickstart a little fire in him. Then watch out, he will burn some teams big time.

"Good luck the rest of the way; you just ran up against a fired up BILLS team"

Um, actually you guys ran up against a pretty bad football team today. I would be cautiously optimistic as its a long season. A playoff team would have beaten us by 40 today...(ie, turnovers). But thanks anyway...

You guy shave somt hing special, and in 2 years, you guys will be celebrating at ur houses/bars, etc etc. David carr, had a horrible game, and he's better than that, davis, an outstanding running back that is proven imo and will be great the rest of the season. The bills deefense is why we won this game period, other than maybe jp losman doing pretyt well for a qb. Nice try texans, you guys will have somt ihng special you have a good team, just need to work on ur deefense. /turnovers.
Maybe it's just me, but did I miss something? Can NFL teams make their own schedules now?

Thanks for the comments, everyone.

Best wishes against the squeelers. No doubt the BILLS have a LOT of work to do, and going into Tampa Bay is going to be very difficult.

Appreciate the kind words, wyo, and all the other Bills fans who came in as gracious winners. I was REALLY impressed with that defense, and although I think it's waaaaaaay too early to say Losman's definitely a solid QB, he had a good start to his NFL career.

And Willis is Willis, nothin' more needs to be said.

I disagree on the AFC East being the "toughest division in the NFL," though, especially after seeing the Jets crash and burn so miserably. But that's a discussion for another thread.

Best of luck to y'all from here on out. Enjoy the season--you should have lots of highlights ahead.

if you find it sporting to watch a lion devour a sheep, then have fun, you're in for a treat... otherwise you might wanna check out golf, bowling, etc.

The Bills fans have also been very respectable...They were the better team that won Sunday, and we know that..Yet they have not rubbed it in our faces....They also stay around here for intelligent football talk....They are accepted as a part of our community as much as iam a part of theirs and other Texans fans.....

Bill's WR Eric Moulds is not underrated at all! The issue with Moulds is that he's not as good as people think or want to believe he is. His name has always been tossed in with Harrison, Moss & T. Owens when he's not in that class at all. For example. Eric caught a lot of passes last year but had only one game over 100 yds. receiving and scored a mere five (5) td's. Underrated? Not hardly, Eric is a singles hitter and he get's all the credit he deserves.
