    I envision the Moss season to something near what we saw from Plaxico Burress with the NYJ in 2011.

    In other words, he won't be too much of a factor, but I also think that he'll have a game or two where he will snag a couple TD's, which will certainly make noise in the media and highlight shows.

    At the end of it all, I would predict 4-5-6 TD's total. Maybe something in that area.

    I like to call these articles "Predictions I'm embarrassed to admit."

    Mark Anderson represents the reason why the Pats are the Pats and the Bills are the Bills.

    Last year, you wouldn't find his name in any articles or bold predictions... the Pats get him for peanuts and get a motivated player fighting for survival in the NFL. Anderson nearly leads the pass rush to a Super Bowl win.

    The Bills then sign a guy who is no longer motivated, no longer in the right situation, and is aging pretty fast- for $9M per year- and it's hailed as a great signing! Mario Williams? Highest paid defensive player in the league, yet no one could say with a straight face that he provides defensive value in the top 10.

    The Bills did not make a single signing where a player can realistically outperform his contract. They were the Redskins of the offseason, and come next year, they'll have a lot of holes and no resources left. I'd think at this point in times teams would learn that auction-style building does not work in the economic realities of the modern NFL. It's a lazy way of doing things- just targeting the biggest names and outbidding your competition. It's a sure formula for epic failure and disappointment.

    That said, I'm glad the Bills did this because I think they'll beat the Jets at least once- if not twice. I'm rooting for them as long as they're not playing against us. I predict the Bills go 7-9.

    As much as I think the Bills may improve, I can't help but wonder if they'll end up being the same old Bills we've been used to for years.

    A Strong defensive front looks to be the Bills biggest asset going into 2012 but what is going to make or break the Bills are thier subpar WRs and whether Fitzpatrick is going to play like his huge $$$$ contract suggests he is.

    On paper the Bills have potential to be a top 5 defense but thier offense aside from the old reliable Fred Jackson is the question.

    Who cares?....he sucks....just like your brilliant comment.

    Sorry I dont like hollywood entertainers on the team,I prefer athletes with some sort of talent left other than letting the world know when he farts.

    Now go back to gang green website as their #1 fan or whatever sewer you came out of :cool:

    Chad will hopefully be gone and I hope you join his new teams fan club......in the CFL

    He is going to be a good receiver but not sure How good.

    If receivers always performed in the regular season like they do in the offseason,camps and preseason games then Bam Childress would be in the Patriots Hall Of Fame :cool:

    Then for your "opinion" to be consistent, you must not like Gronk very much. But I'm willing to go out on a limb and say that you do like Gronk. And that makes you a hypocrite. Chad Johnson seems to be a loveable guy. You don't like what he does off the field other than football? Get over it. It's pretty pathetic for someone to get so bent out of shape over it.

    I hope he contributes this year so that people like you can eat their words.

    And no, I'm not a big 85 supporter. I just support common sense and not being a dumbass.

    Too early to say Gronk is going to be a Hollywood flamboyant athlete...sure he is in the limelight but he is young and hopefully reigns it in when he matures a bit more.

    I think this thing with Gronk and some of his wild things he does will not be a longevity issue.

    No Jersey Selected

    "Ocho" changed his name back to Chad Johnson and will be a different player this year.

    Note: I did not say a "good" player. Heck, he might not even make the team. If you think, even in a confused and drunken second, that Belichick will keep him over some who he feels "is best for the team" then pass me some of what you are smoking.

    The main goal is to get the five best receivers on the roster,whoever they may be and for ALL of them to contribute not only in practice but on the field..

    That's what we all want and hope for and trust Belichick to make the right moves.

    Maybe that's why the Pats drafted Nate Ebner . . .

    have him grow out his beard, and the Bills won't be able to tell the difference between him and Fitzpatrick. :eek:

    You're still a hypocrite.

    Currently, Gronk IS a Hollywood athlete, constantly in the press for non football related things. You used that as a negative towards Johnson, but are dismissing it with Gronk because you THINK it won't continue. That is an inconsistent, terrible opinion, and you were called on it.

    For the record, I love Gronk, and don't have a problem with non football related activities during the offseason unless they are law related...

    I dont think Gronk is a huge attention whore at this time although some believe so,most of Gronk's offseason thing was the kids hope to be on the cover of Madden and what 24 year old wouldnt want that?

    .....I don't care whether you think it's a hypocritical opinion or not....he is not on the level of 85.....not yet IMO
