There will be a lot of crow handed out to media...

These 2 win predictions and worst in league are going to look pretty dumb at the end of the year I figure.  Too bad there is no accountability in the media.  

 

This defense will be much better than any of the media gives it credit for...fringe top 10 in a lot of categories and McDermott and the staff will have them ready to play just like last year.  

 

On offense I think having a real OC and a QB that's not afraid to make mistakes will help open things up for shady.  Everyone assumes the defense will key in to stop the run, which worked when Taylor was QB but AJ or Josh will actually throw the ball over the top if they stack the box.  Yes our weapons are questionable at WR...but clay and oleary are quality pass catchers...cadet and shady are very good out of backfield, Kerley, Jones and Benjamin are not terrible especially in a Daboll offense. 

 

We won't light world on fire but 8 wins is doable. 

Your triumphant rallying cry crescendoing in the bold statement "8 wins is doable" falls a bit flat.

 

Sorry.

Yeah, vacation on the 22nd so no phone for that week! Going to try and take a break until the first preseason game. 

 

The team did us fans no favors by doing the right thing and making Allen take baby steps. 

Good luck.

 

I'm sitting on a deck in Hawaii as I write this.

I think that I’m going to start treating the board like school and take the summers off. Look at the 1st page and see if there are any interesting discussions? I realize that nothing goes on this time of year but come on!!

I understand people thinking that the D might be okay, but unless McCarron is a very pleasant surprise, I can't see this offense even being average.

As the jags showed this past year....if you can play great defense and run the ball......you can get to the playoffs.

 

Their qb was horrible most of the year......and they still made it deep.

 

Our qb situation is better then theirs

Considering many members of TBD are driven up the (stadium) wall by the predictions of just about anyone with access to the World Wide Web, may I suggest you each pick your 'worst enemy', and record their predictions.  That way if the jamoke scrubs his/her picks, you have proof of what was prognosticated well before training camps.  It probably wouldn't take too much coordination, and next year the seers' bosses might not be so quick to give them a voice.

There's plenty of accountability in the media - just not the type we'd wish for.

 

Guys who drive revenues do well.  Guys who don't drive revenue don't.

 

It has next-to-nothing to do with accuracy at predictions or knowledge of the game.  

 

I'm not expecting the Bills to light the world on fire this season - too many gaps/questions on the offensive side - I also think prediction of 2 wins are pretty crazy.  Yet we read those articles, given the author clicks.

We won 9 games last year.  8-10 wins this year is more than doable.  The 2018 schedule looks tougher, but no one knows for sure how that will work out.

Rodak said the Bills' season was over before it started last year and has yet to eat a feather.  There will be no crow, as there is no accountability.

I picked up a hat (not a fedora) in Niagara last summer.  Getting pretty thin up top and it looks cool 😎.

Me. I have four in my rotation. Better than pulling the phone out all the time.  Unless your already doing that.

I loved hats even when I was a little boy. Today, I favor an Irish tweed cap for autumn and winter.

I was really just making a joke regarding watches. My grandfather gave me a nice Bulova years ago, but my luck with watches is poor.  They break or the wristband snaps. I think I'm not supposed to have a watch; the gods have spoken.

The media folks saying that the Bills are in for a "bad" year are just as credible right now as the people on this board that say things like the Bills will have a "fringe top 10 defense". We have no idea what will happen. Not you, not the media...no one!

 

You can't call out the media for their irresponsible use of the word "will", while doing it yourself. 

I think the Bills will be much better than this early press, but I agree with you. Who knows?   Maybe McD was just lucky last year.  Maybe Daboll will bust.  

 

You aren't good until you prove you are, and the Bills haven't proved anything yet.

But, the media always posts the Bills in the bottom 5 with predictions. The Bills' fans know they probably going to be medicore. 7-9 predictions are reasonable.

His prediction was 8-8.

It will be at least as good or better than with Taylor.

Mea culpa for what? Prior to last year, how many times was the media right about the Bills being bad?

Yet, just like now, there were Bills fans getting their panties in knot because some person in the media predicted the Bills were going to do poorly.

How many of those fans came back with their mea culpas?

 

ZERO.

I know alot of fans get angry when writers talk bad about our team but even McDermott himself said they over achieved last season, I think were better than a 2 win season and our defense should actually be improved imo but the offense is still in flux, the OL took a small step back losing 2 of our vets, there is 0 depth behind Benjamin and Zay Jones, if either gets hurt we will be relying on more late round rookies and failed veterans. I'm optimistic but i don't think were a playoff team this season, next season or the season after if Josh Allen has a year or 2 under his belt.
