Well now Mario is saying he needs wrist surgery or something right before the big "Judgement Day" game, so he might not even play. I was hoping he would since he sucks so bad but I guess we'll have to line up against someone who might try.

I'm speculating, but.. Unless Mario's wrist is Broken, if he doesn't suit up to show the world Houston made a mistake, he loses any credibility he may have in the world of football. What does it say to any other player in the NFL?

I think it will expose Mario's problem: He's hung like a hamster.

Mario has everything to lose. Suit up or not. If he suits up, the expectation is that he's got to have the game of his season. There's no other game on his calendar that can shadow this one and I don't believe he'll impact the game much. As a positive, at least, he'll still continue to have folks in Buffalo wondering what's wrong with Mario. But not to even suit up.. The whole world will know.

Bills have gotten NOTHING so far for the money they paid for Williiams and Anderson.

I'm VERY happy we passed on Mario. He's an Albert Haynesworth type mistake for Buffalo.

I hates me some Bills.
I thought it was the 2-14 season. I remember the Texans were winning by 2 or 3 touchdowns in the 3rd (I think) and Fitzpatrick was their 3rd stringer. He came in and the Texans defense made him look like Joe Montana! I think they won in OT if I'm not mistaken. Ugly game for the Texans and brutal to watch! Talk about defeat snatched from the jaws of victory!

hahaha some of those Bills posts are hilarious. Especially the one about Foster getting excited, jumping up and breaking his ankle, and then Tate taking his place and running for 200 yards

You're right. I mis-typed. I meant 2-14.

I rather like this post from that Bills board.

Quote:
Houston is playing this year with a gimondulous chip on their shoulder. They were arguably the best all-around team in football last year until Schaub got hurt. They went to the playoffs with their 3rd string QB. And they got very little respect in the press for it. It's like "that team in Texas - you mean, the Cowboys?" The Texans don't want to win this year. They want to dominate. They will look at what NYJ and NE and SF did to us and they will be out to do more, better, quicker.

I would like to watch a game where the Bills play scrappy. I think we will be watching a vivisection.

As for Mario, taking plays off gets to be a habit, just like anything else a guy keeps doing. So he may want to play well, but his habits will stand against him.

Fitzpatrick schooled us, granted back in the REALLY bad days of the Texans...but still, nobody needs to chalk this up as a sure-fire W for us.

Green Bay knocked us around really hard, and they were supposedly a wounded team.
Great insight GP. I see what you are saying. I also understand what many think about power rankings. However, I see power rankings as the media's example of what we as fans do all the times. Maybe subconsciously but we've all got an idea of who's good, who's bad, who's the best, who's the favorite to make the Super Bowl, who won't make the play-offs etc...

That said, & acknowledging the any given Sunday if the Bills come in & beat us, everybody is going to know something is wrong. It shouldn't happen.

IT did happen to the Packers, so stranger things & all. They responded & whupped us the following week. That whup'n they gave us should prevent a team like the Bills from coming in to Reliant & getting a win.

If they are who we think they are.
