    We will go into last game of season with a shot at playoffs!

    Miami (2), Indi, Jville, St. Louis...

    I see nothing in this schedule that lends me to believe we won't take each of these games.

    Lets look at the positives right now...

    We just took two AFC Superbowl contenders to the last minute... One of which we were fighting the refs damn near the whole game. None of the above teams represent that level of competition.

    5 of the next 7 games are at home.

    CJ Spiller and Fred Jackson are the best tandem in the league.

    Stevie Johnson is an elite WR.

    A healthy Cordy Glenn changes our offense.

    We're a relatively healthy football team.

    We got down 10-0 to the Pats on the road. We scrapped the whole game only to lose on the last play. This team isn't quitting.

    There is every possibility of us getting to the Seatle game with a 7-6 record. Seattle doesn't impress me, so I can see a big win there followed by a another big win on the road against the Fish.

    9-6.

    Jets at home... Mario with a chance to do some mouth punching of his own.

    Bottomline: The Bills haven't given up on this season, and neither have I!

    that showed me something.

    we've got a shot... albeit a small one... but its still there.

    I am hopeful Mario takes inspiration from the work ethic of his teammates and turns it up a notch.

    if he did... he coul be a difference maker for us.

    Nope, this team responds to difficulty by imploding. They give up, lay down and die. We go into the final game at best 7-8 which is good enough to keep Chan employed and us away from a decent draft pick.

    I won't totally rule this out. You're right. We didn't not lose to the Pats badly. We were in a position to win on their field and against a top notch foe.

    If we can take this as a moral victory and move forward to be an even better football team, I could see a run of wins.

    I hope you're right.

    that loss was devastating. it will require too much help that they won't get, and i frankly don't see them winning more than2 games. those miami games are not give me games.

    They'd better not.

    I don't need this team screwing up their draft position and making it at all possible for Fitz or Wanny to have a job next year.

    Rams are a very solid team.
    I remember that one fateful day when Coach took me aside. I knew what was coming. "You don't have to tell me," I said. "I'm off the team, aren't I?"
    "Well," said Coach, "you never were really ON the team. You made that uniform you're wearing out of rags and towels, and your helmet is a toy space helmet.
    You show up at practice and then either steal the ball and make us chase you to get it back, or you try to tackle people at inappropriate times."
    It was all
    true what he was saying. And yet, I thought something is brewing inside the head of this Coach.
    He sees something in me, some kind of raw talent that he can
    mold. But that's when I felt the handcuffs go on.

    In risking to become the next PTI, I think Fitzpathetic alone will keep us out of the playoffs.

    Is this the same poster from a month or so ago? Or has substance abuse been involved?

    Two years ago that very question came up. And here we are.

    IMO, He was never good enough to be considered "all we need" at QB.

    Losing close to the Pats in Foxboro isn't the badge of courage it was years ago. They're almost a 0.500 team aside from the games against the Bills.
    Gailey's history. He just doesn't know it yet.

    They were the conference champs last year, so they have that going for them until some team says different.
