For one thing, the Bills are not suffering the dillusions of grandeur that you are. We don't deserve to be ranked 13th after last week's abysmal showing, but then again, neither do the Jags. In case you forgot last year The Bills were #2 in total defense (our current rank as well BTW) (#1 in yards/play, #1 in takeaways, etc.), #1 in special teams, we finished the season off with an 8-2 record including a 6 game winning streak which included 1 game giving up 16 yards of offense, averaging 38 points for and giving up 14.8 per. We are a team on the rise, but not dillusional like obnoxious Jags fans usually are.

Well, I'm already laughing at the texans for already being "on the clock" for the no.1 pick in '06.

jk...Friendly jab

The Jags, IMO, will make the playoffs. Byron is the perfect leader at QB, if only we can protect him better. Sure, he may be the toughest man in the NFL, but he isn't invinsible. That may be HUGE for not only us to make the playoffs, but for Byron to finish the season healthy. No offense to the texans, but our O-Line is looking like the texan's. Our D is still very good, and our wide recievers are young and athletic (excluding Jimmy, who is already proven).

I have confidence in this team. Even if we lose 3 out of our next 4 (God forbid), the second half of our schedule is easier than the first half.

That has to go to our ex-statue, Blew Dreadslow.. While he is a terrible QB who posesses zero-field leadership ability, the guy is constantly getting hammered, on the ground, running head first into defenders... I mean it is brutal to watch this guy. Then he stands up like it was just a leaf landing on his forhead, not a 350 pound lineman.

Yeah, the Jags deserve a top 10 ranking ... proof that there is little logic in early season power rankings. Want more? The 1-1 Patsies lost in embarassing fashion to the Panthers, sure... but the vastly improved defense of the Chiefs sit at 2-0 yet rank lower... Not only that, but the Panthers who pounded the Patsies are ranked 4 lower than the very team they made eat dirt. The 0-2 Chargers have proven nothing, yet they are ranked higher than 7 teams with 1-1 records, as well as Oakland who also sits at 0-2 but is a better team. To call the Texans the worst in the league after losing to the #1 and #2 overall defenses last year is foolish, particularly when you see the Vikes and Cards sit above them 5 and 3 positions respectively.

Don't put the cart in front of the horse dicky. The Jags are 1-1, on par with the Miami Dolphins and 49ers... I'll laugh my @$$ of at you personally when the Jags miss the playoffs.


the bills are 1-1 as well. and @ indianapolis is a tougher game than @ tampa bay by a mile. And seahawks > vikings.

You're on par with the dolphins and 49ers...

I'll laugh my @$$ of at you personally when the bills miss the playoffs.

I don't have a reason to toot the Buffalo Bills horn (and would be foolish to with a rookie QB in the toughest division in the NFL). You will not see me drift around talking trash on other boards about the other team. I prefer to discuss football in an unbiased fashion, unlike the typical Jags fan.

Of note, the Indianapolis Colts offense is not the golden child it was last year, and their defense, while apparently revitalized, hasn't played a real offensive jauggernaut. Let's be real, they played Baltimore, allowing them 7 points and 355 through the air. Baltimore followed it up with 10 against an inept Titans defense. Jax scored 3 with under 200 in the air (impressive) against an Indy defense that held the Ravens to 7. Suddenly your loss isn't so much more impressive is it? Not when you consider the Tampa D has been solid for years, claiming top 10 status each year over the last 10 years.

Also, beating a team that travelled 4000 miles for the game is not terribly impressive. Jet lag and many other factors play into it. And who played the vikings? We played Houston in game 1... you know, the team that beat you twice last year with a total score of 41-6.
