    No way they win all 5 of them. In fact, I'll bet you 5K Zonebucks that they lose at least one of those 5.

    Are you really saying that we took Houston to the last minute? The Bills lost 21-9 and didn't score a TD...

    Toronto doesn't count as a "home game," IMO.

    Doesn't matter much when the coach doesn't know how to use them.

    Seattle beat both New England and the Jets... Something the Bills couldn't do. I'm not ready to simply chalk two wins up against Miami, either...

    Get back to me on Friday. Like I said, 5k ZB says the Bills lose at least one of the 5 games (Miami (2), Ind, StL, Jax) you mention, making the rest of your post moot.

    And the Patriots are a Super Bowl contender? Not bloody likely.
    Gailey's history. He just doesn't know it yet.

    Great...so if you want to go by last year's results, we're last place with a 1-5 record in the division. So the Bills have that going for them until they decide to field a real team that can compete.

    0-3 in the division. How's that going? Not so good, eh?

    I agree with OP... Pats game was more than a "too bad, so close" moment for me. This team at week 17 will look nothing like this team at week 5.

    Unreal...the team is still losing. Every darn week they lose and you guys find something positive to take from it. This is the 2012 Patriots, guys. Not the 2007 Patriots. This New England team is crazy inconsistent. The only thing their fans can reliably depend on is beating the Bills. Other than that, they are a 0.500 team. Their offense is still potent and batted us around like a cat with a mouse. The defense (24th in the league) is their Achille's heel, especially the pass defense (27th).

    Nearly another franchise record this week though (penalty yards). And the offense turned the ball over three times and nearly had a fourth.

    Good teams like New England find ways to win. Lousy, poorly coached teams like Buffalo find ways to lose.

    Sorry... All I see here is "Blah, blah, blah, blah. blah, curl up into a fetal position and wait for death".

    Could someone else offer me a better translation?

    I have a translation for you. Taking positive things from a loss is for losers and retards.

    Trust me, I am not the least bit depressed about the Bills. I thought the defense would be better and they would go 9-7 or so, but I half expected them to do what they do best: tank.

    They are not going anywhere this year and they never will under Chump Gailey. Every week is another travesty of coaching. Last week, the 150 yards in penalties should have been enough. If not that, then the timeout they had to call when the team wasn't ready after Spiller picked up a first on the last scoring drive and alertly went out of bounds.

    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!


    I'll bet you $10,000 that you are dead wrong.

    Just for the record....I predict that the Bills win no more than 2 games the rest of the year....most likely, just one.

    Before you guys get all worked up over the close loss the NE.

    Their defense sucks. Their secondary is one of the worst in the league.

    NE's defense sucked last year too. They are defending AFC champs for two reasons.

    Brady
    Belichick

    The Bills have:

    Fitzpatrick
    Gailey

    Case closed!

    We were one play from being one game back in the division. How anyone could have watched yesterday's game and not come away from it hungry for more is beyond me.

    It's clear to me they are putting the work in and they are scrapping their asses off. This worm is going to turn for them.

    How can anyone watch the Bills this whole season...and for the past 12 seasons....and not think that wishing upon a star for the playoffs is pretty silly.

    The "worm will turn" for the Bils when two things happen. We get a real QB, and a new committed owner.

    Like I said, 5k ZoneBucks says the Bills lose at least one of the 5 games you mentioned: Miami (2), Ind, Jax, StL.

    You in?
