    I'm expecting to see some of CJ Spiller as wideout.

    Also,starting right guard Kraig Urbik will miss several weeks with a knee injury. On top of that WR Johnson has been dealing with a groin injury. I don't wish injuries on anybody................unless it helps my team. :)

    Bills backup (rookie) has more promise than Parrish imo

    David Nelson and Stevie Johnson may actually be an upgrade over Lee Evans and Roscoe Parrish. Add in Scott Chandler at TE and - don't laugh - this Bills offense is about equal to the Chargers offense. Buffalo's offense is going to be a huge challenge for the Patriots defense on Sunday.

    Don't forget about Fred Jackson. Still, can't see them pressuring Brady, and thus, can't see them winning.

    I would be surprised if Stevie Johnson plays after re-injurying his groin last week. Guess we'll find out.

    Would even out the Hernandez loss.

    Yeah, I will laugh. It's a little early in the season to start pretending Fitzpatrick, Nelson and Chandler are Rivers, Jackson and Gates.

    After reading about the season-ending losses of Koppen & Pryor today, I continue to have no sympathy toward any team over any injuries, ever. We've suffered much more than our fair share over the years, starting with Tedy's stroke (otherwise known as The Beginning of the End).

    And it's not that I wish harm to most of these players (though I do wish it to some of them...Marcus Pollard, Bobby Wade...Ray-Ray Lewis...)

    FWIW, Fred Jackson is better than any of the Chargers' RBs. I wouldn't crown the Bills' offense yet, and we're catching them when they're really banged up, but they're definitely legit.

    If the Bills put up 30 on us, which is a distinct possibility because their offense really is pretty good, I may have to take a mini vacation from this board to get away from the chicken littles.

    I read that the Bills have 28 of the 53 players on the roster who were 5th,
    6th and 7th rounders and some that were not even drafted.

    The laughter that was prevalent thoughout the NFL when Chan Gailey was named coach has turned from laughs to respect.

    I think those 2 starting WRs they have now were late picks or UDFA,this team can take these WR losses and keep doing well since its apparent that whole team is overachievers

    I'd rather have Ryan Mathews. At some point Norv is going to realize his mancrush on Tolbert will hurt the Chargers (he should be realizing that right now, in fact). Mathews had kind of a rough rookie year, but he is a stud.

    Really? He's proven to be anything but a stud thus far. Norv has a man crush on Tolbert for better reasons than your man crush on Matthew's, one has produced much better than the other.

    Ok bud. Even in what people considered a disappointing rookie season for Mathews he had a better yards per carry than Tolbert. Mathews' main problem was fumbling. Tolbert is not a great runner of the ball and is in fact thoroughly average in that department. Pretty good pass catching back though. Ryan Mathews is a MUCH more talented runner than Tolbert.

    On what basis is Mathews a stud? Everything that I've seen from him has been unimpressive, right down to the 5 fumbles in 180 touches. Best case scenario for Mathews, he might eventually become the better player. In either case, that's irrelevant to the point that Jackson, at this point in time, is the objectively better player. There is no reasonable argument that can be made to the contrary.

    I have Nelson on my fantasy team. I hate the fact that I know he's gonna beast this Sunday against the Pats secondary. Hopefully, it'll be on a losing effort for his team but not for my fantasy squad ;)

    The Chargers are better at

    QB
    OL
    WR1
    WR2
    TE1
    TE2

    Other than that, it's really close. ;)

    I guess you haven't watched Mathews at all this year. He tore it up in pre-season, and he has about 250 total yards through two weeks. He is dangerous home-run threat. Norv needs to give him more carries.

    And as I said above: aside from the fumbles Mathews was a better runner than Tolbert last year also.

    If the Pats players and coaches take the Bills as lightly as this board does, we are going to get spanked next week. Don't take the bills lightly, they have quality schemes and a hot QB.
    We have a really hot QB and an amazing offense.
    The difference is Fitzpatrick is throwing against the #31 worse pass defense. Ouch!

    With Vollmer potentially out, I can't wait to see Solder and Dareus getting after it on Sunday.

    Dareus was my pick for ROTY before he was even drafted,This kid has unquestionable talent and I am afraid Brady might see him VERY close up on sunday if you know what I mean....the OL better be ready.

    No one is taking the Bills lightly. Some people just aren't going to act like two good games against average-to-bad teams make them one of the best teams in the league. They have to do more proving than that.

    I myself am seriously thinking this is going to be a close game and Brady will be passing much less and RBs in more usage during this game.

    I would be surprised if the Pats win by more than 10 and would not be surprised to see them lose by 10....IMO this game will be a low scoring game compared to the last 2 - say both teams ranging in the late teens to upper
    20s final score.

    Don't want to highjack the thread and I do like or RBs,but imagine what this team would be like if we had a tough nosed hard RB like Turner on this team,I watched that ATL/Phil game and he was very impressive as he has been for awhile.

    Yeah, he's seemed to have fixed his fumbling problems. Fumbling problems don't take away from his skill as a runner. Adrian Peterson has had fumbling problems in his NFL career. Doesn't make him a bad runner now does it?

    Brett Favre threw a ton of INTs but that won't keep him from the HOF as he is a shoo-in.

    Some people look at players in different ways.

    If Mathews keeps fumbling that's a problem, but I am sure he's working hard on fixing it and it may be fixed.

    But it's nice to know the posters here look at other team's rookie just like ours: if they're not All-Pro their rookie season then they're worthless.
