If luck would offer you a swap would you trade week #1's win for a win vs. The Colts?

  1. Yes, I'd rather have the Colts win.

    I was thinking about something today (amazing, huh?):

    That was part 4th Quarter collapse and part bad luck (spot on the 4th down attempt) last night that caused us to lose.

    Almost the reverse of why we won the Bills game in week #1 that we had almost no business winning.

    I know this sting is still fresh, but would you trade the Colts loss for the Bills win in week #1?

    I'm not sure I would, but I'm curious what the rest of you think. To me, the division record is foremost and winning the division is a guaranteed ticket to the playoffs.

    I'll stick a poll on here as well, and keep it basic.

    Nah, take the divisional win. I'd rather get to the playoffs first and foremost than not at all.

    AFCE First. We all know Pay-A-Ton Manning and the Dolts will be done and done in January anyway. We will be the ones doing it. :D:D:D

    no because all the colts loss cost the pats is a by in the playoff's

    but a loss to the bills in the AFC east and the next week a loss to the jets could have cost a playoff spot

    or at lest make it harder to win the east

    Look Nostradamus, I don't know of many 13-3 teams that can't get a first-round bye. So barring either clairvoyance or time travel, you're guessing just like everybody else.

    Home Field Advantage is pretty much shot, when we see the Colts again. That's about it at this point.
