Thumbs up Willis McGahee out indefinitely ?

Is this game important enough for the Bills to put McGahee on the field hurt?
3 broken ribs may not be enough to keep him out.

Anthony Thomas could probably tow-the-line for the Bills, but I wouldn't be supprised to see McGahee starting on Sunday.

And, I thought I heard today that the Texans are a slight favorite to win this game....is this true?

I've heard that Willis could be out for up to another 3 weeks, so I'd be suprised to see him play this week. Anthony Thomas got 4 ypc against the worst rushing defense in the league, so he's definately stopable. Hopefully Willis we be out, that would be a good advantage for us, but he wasn't having the greatest year before his injury anyways. I'd be suprised for him to come out before he's ready.

With or without him, I think we'll win anyways

Willis is out, 3 broken ribs has him out another 2 - 4 weeks apparently, he'd have to be crazy to try and play against us. A Train will get the start and while he isn't a very explosive runner, he could wear us down. Should be a fun game to watch.

imo a-train will get it done for the bills, though if we put up 21 points we win easy. texans win 21-17 imo.

A-Train hits what holes the O-line can create quicker. If our O-line were better, I'd say McGahee is the better back...but A-Train can handle the poor blocking better

From what alot of Bills fans say over on thier board, they'd rather have A-train running the ball. IMO, either one of them are liable to have a good game against us if our Dline doesn't show up. Let's hope our Dline backups can step up to the plate.

Battle of two of the AFC's best 'backers: TKO Spikes and DeMeco Ryans.

I have a lot of respect for Willis for his ability to come back from...I won't say it. I think he was the NFL's leading rusher early in the season. However, our D didn't give Ronnie Brown, Fred Taylor, Tiki Barber, or Travis Henry the kind of performance they would've gotten against 05's Defense. I think we can stop both McGahee and Thomas.

You're giving TKO an awful lot of credit. Before his injury last year, I'd say he was one of the best in the NFL..he has yet to show he's nearly the same player

yeah, that's a big concern for me, too. Right when our D was just starting to gel and peform as a cohesive unit, we get the middle of our line gutted and have persistent injuries to other players.

He's not playing for sure. A-Train fits their scheme perfectly. I would fear them equally anyway, with the injuries we have on the d-line.

Hahahaha...too bad the Bills suck...WATCHOUT FOR LEE EVANS with Sanders hurt...thas what im worried about. Texans win by 3!

i see A-train as a Travis Henry type back and we stoped him completley. Maybe i am foolish for placing my faith in this D, but the last 6 weeks have me believeing.
