Have absolutely zero stats to back up what I am going to say, but it has been my impression that the NFL gooses ticket sales and interest in teams by having feeble teams win big in preseason.

 

My thinking on the issue started when Larry Felser warned Marv Levy to take preseason more seriously.  Felser actually asserted that preseason failure was a definitive precursor to season failure.

 

Since then, I have casually noticed preseason games versus season success, and IMO there seems to be an inverse relationship.

 

But I would not bet a dime on that.

Stone Cold Lock!

 

And it was Seahawks first Super Bowl win, as it will be for the Bills

Probably not the first time you’ve said (or at least thought) that.

The Bills have had pretty porous records in the preseason over the last 15 years. I think there's very little correlation between preseason record and regular season success, but it's not like the Bills have been preseason world beaters.

Right about now I'd piss on a spark plug if I thought it would do any good.

How about an electric fence?

Kubrick was a genius. 

 

I also love the scene when the army is attacking the air base.

 

They are engaged in a fire fight in front of a big billboard which reads "Peace is our profession."

We might want to hold off on this.  The 2013 Seattle Seahawk defense was incredible.  They destroyed Peyton Manning and the dominant Broncos offense (ranked 1st overall that year), holding them to 8 points.  This Bills defense is no where near that.

I turned off radio too soon (could not deal with the same ad for idiots repeated multiple times and high volume) and did not know they won.

Did not find score important enough to look up but thanks.

And probably Wilson and Allen had the most rushing yards by a QB and rushing TD by a QB in their rookie season. 

 

Also was that the 3rd season for Pete as this is the 3rd season for McDermott.

But does have the pieces to be one.

Of note:

 

The last ELEVEN Superbowl champions were .500 or better in the pre-season.

 

Predictive?  No scientific basis? 

 

You combine this with the Seahawks similarities and this thing is a done deal.

This year feels like 1988. We were 12-4 and went to the AFC Finals that year. We were 4-12 in '86, and 7-8 in '87. Kelly's first two years with the Bills.

 

They were 6-6 in 87. Those strike games DON'T COUNT.

6 wins before winning the division. Like Deja Vu all over again.

A little more pessimistic than I would like to be.  But it's true, no way this defense is in the same league as the 2013 Seahawks, which is mentioned alongside all time great defenses such as the '85 Bears, '00 Ravens, etc.

It may have some of the pieces, though the defensive line could use more upgrades.  I think the biggest difference is defensive coaching, Dan Quinn >>>>> Leslie Frazier.  IMO, this defense will not be elite under Frazier.

Interesting. I was thinking we might see the Philadelphia Story II. Talented but raw rookie QB takes big leap forward in second year, leading team to playoff berth, but gets injured. Former hyped R1 backup takes them the rest of the way....
