    I guess Watson is our third receiver. I am having a hard time seeing Galloway making a impact this year. I think we are putting too much pressure on Moss/Welker for those hard yards I find myself missing the days of David Givens. We need a reliable target opposite Moss for this offense to flourish.

    Too early to tell. For all aspects of game. Win's a win. Even in the heyday, I rememeber crazy times (especially vs Maimi). NFL - winning is all that matters.

    Maybe Galloway gets 120 yards next week - who's to say ?

    Im still thinking Galloway, and Brady just need more time. There's also that Endelman, Eselman, Edsel,,,,,that little Welker clone :D

    Between Baker, Watson, Faulk, Taylor and Maroney, I'm not convinced an established 3rd receiver is necessary. You line up those backs and TEs along with Moss and Welker, there WILL be a mismatch somewhere.

    It was good to see Brady attempting to get Maroney involved with the passing game early. I would like to see him become the new Kevin Faulk.

    It's early. Worst case, Aiken fills the void, or they bring Nunn off practice squad. Give Galloway a bit more time before giving up on him.

    I was hoping BB was sandbagging Galloway in the pre-season like he did with Moss in '07, I guess thats not the case. Galloway was invisible out there tonight & its a big concern.

    Moss was the only receiver getting any separation out there last night ( & only on short routes ), Welker had his catches but the bills were all over him. We need our 3rd receiver to step up to take some pressure off those two.

    Separation did seem to be a problem all night. There just wasn't much.

    Odd to say this, but I hope the Bills are that good. The alternatives are worse.
