    The Bills injuries once again starting to build...every year it seems they lose at least 10 players to injury.

    Nelson out for the year with a torn ACL and Jackson out for at least a month or more.

    That means definitely no Jackson in 3 weeks and possibly in week 9s game.


    Also on the AFC East front....there is a decent chance that Revis who sustained a mild concussion yesterday by Mr. 'Can't Wait',might be out of the lineup and not be covering Wallace next week.

    Picking the Jets to be #2 in the AFC East is looking better by the day. That sucks for Buffalo. They are just cursed, IMO! IDK what it is...

    I highly expect the Bills to re-sign Roscoe Parrish who I believe is still available or perhaps one of Gaffney or Stallworth.

    At this moment,the Bills have the worst WR corps in the NFL....including Miami and Jacksonville

    Tough blow to lose Nelson as he was probably Fitz' security blanket. Besides, Johnson, the Bills have no other wideout who is really capable.

    They are saying on the local radio that the MRI tests on Jackson's knee came back inconclusive and that they'll let him rest up for 7-10 days and see how his knee responds.

    On the heels of the latest Fred Jackson injury, the Bills have released a new helmet logo in effect for the rest of the 2012 season :bricks:

    Wow, sucks for fred jackson. He is definitely the only AFCE player I'd want on my Pats team now. (not even revis cos he's won't buy into the patriots way).

    The Bills are left with three best case scenarios and all of them are wishful thinking. A: Fitzpatrick suddenly becomes a godlike QB and makes all his remaining receivers studs. Likelihood of that happening? Impossible. B: The Bills running game is somehow good enough to win them more than 8 games. I don't know how good that is, so someone will have to clue me in. C: The D becomes so dominant that the Bills can win games by scoring barely more points than their opponent (kind of like the Giants). And judging by how they let Sanchez throw for 3 TDs they've got a ways to go.

    On second thought, forget scenario number 2. I don't know what's more unreliable, Fitzpatrick or a Jacksonless Bills running game.

    Frankly,I don't think even Brady or Manning could prosper with that WR Corps

    Its simply hideous and even Johnson is not without up and down games

    Buffalo will need a 1,500 yard rushing performance from Spiller and whenever Jackson heals to even come close to challenging for the division.

    There's quite a few AFCE players that I'd take on the pats, probably starting with Nick Mangold

    Provided that Brady stays healthy, the Bills never had a shot at the division. Even before yesterday, they were playing for the wild card.

    Spiller is a very capable runner. He ran well for the Bills while Jackson was out last year and he ran for 169 yards yesterday. While not as versatile as Jackson, Spiller is much more explosive and dangerous.

    That's unfortunate
