    Re: ESPNs Football Power Index Projections for 2022....Bills #1

    I don't put a lot of weight into it, but I know we have a very good team with certainty.

    Being ranked 24th or 27th was always a downer, man. Being ranked 10-15th was encouraging. Being ranked number 1 is like, well, people thinking you should be ranked number 1.

    It's feel good stuff. I'm good with it. Had enough feel bad stuff. Tired of it.

    So....the advice that you give as a doctor are meaningless.....And all textbooks are meaningless because, as you are suggesting, experts opinions dont matter.

    Please. Pimp your toxic anger somewhere else.

    The ignorance is the knee jerk rejection of any expert opinion no matter how objective and unbiased criteria is.....especially when it projects the Bills as one of the best teams in the NFL (which they undeniably are). On a supposed Bills fan forum site?!?!!?


    Jesus. Why the penchant to **** on the Bills so much???? Why are these Negative Nancys here and how in the world do they see themselves as Bills fans?!?!? These are loyal Bills fans?!?!?!


    I think NOT!!!!!!!!

    SO...you disagree with the overwhelming majority (if not 100%) of the objective NFL experts view (and the Las Veags odds makers....money talks and bullcrap walks) that the Bills are one of the best if not THE best team in the NFL, and are THE favorite to get to and win the Super Bowl this year????


    Hmmmmmmm......explain your disrespect for the Bills team. And tell us why your opinion is more valuable and credible than theirs.

    this is insanity. Doctors and textbooks deal in science. Sports writers deal in opinions. It's a false equivalency.

    No, its not. Thats why people sometimes get several opinions on a health issues, prognosis and treatment.


    Did you not see the almost TOTAL REJECTION of science concerning Covid.....the opinions about the safety and effectiveness of vaccines....treatments (the insane pimping of hydroxchlroqine.....and other unproven cures for Covid.) and the use of masks, all perverted because of right wing politics?!?!?

    And with textbooks, have you not paid attention to the red states rejecting science and factual history in order to promote their own biased (and false) viewpoint and opinion of what history IS, and what science even means?!?!?



    What do you think the whole Republican Party is ALL about today?????.....rejecting FACTS and TRUTH concerning elections and who won in 2020.


    Sorry Opi....the equivalency is SPOT ON!!!

    Oh please. If you think ignoring a doctor's advice on COVID is the same thing as blowing off a sport's writer's power ranking, I can't help you.

    There are many, many, many more people that “ignore a doctor’s advice on Covid” than blowing off a sports writer's expert power ranking.

    If you don’t realize the reality of that, I can't help you.

    And what's your point? People are being stupid about COVID. Power rankings are nothing but opinions. The two things have nothing to do with each other.

    One of the best and #1 are vastly different descriptive. This thread is about a puffy feel good your team is THE best pre preseason power ranking. Ranking meaning in order not a group of teams listed as one of the best.

    The point is the mindset of knee jerk rejection of expert information and opinion.

    My example of doctors advice is spot on. Swiper is a medical doctor. The training and experience should mean that his opinion on medical and health issues are more valuable and credible than some guy who gets their information from the internet or what like minded people are saying.

    His knee jerk (and almost violent, certainly toxic and angry) rejection of professional NFL experts is EXACTLY like if one has a knee jerk rejection of his medical and health care opinion.

    We see this phenomena in all kinds of places in todays society. I can list them all but it would be deemed too political.

    Sorry to tell the closed minded, biased cynics, power rankings and the opinions of professional sports writers, ex-NFL players, coaches and GMs, are more valuable and credible than the sometimes lunatic rantings of some of the posters here.

    EXACTLY like the lunatic rantings rejecting the health threat from Covid, and the effectiveness and need for vaccines are much less valid, valuable and accurate than what trained, experienced medical and health experts provide.

    It really is a simple concept.


    The BIG question is WHY do so-called Bills fans reject favorable power rankings and opinions from professional NFL experts of the teams prospects out of hand?!?!?!?

    Are they WRONG???? And if so, WHY????

    I don't know. The point should be the mind set of knee jerk "reaction". Your knees can't help themselves.

    Why also, does a so called "Bills Fan" need be incapable of critical thought ? That's not a fan, it's a mindless drone that let's other shape his opinions because it's easier than thinking. It's not hard to be a fan, and see issues anyway, to enjoy the puff pieces, but harbor concerns. The world is not black and white, it has shades of gray you necessarily have to navigate. I see other people navigate them, your knees just bounce into needing to insult people.

    Get a grip. It's a message board where people will have opinions you don't agree with. They're entitled to them.
