Bills 2-0 are fools gold - Article

Recommended Posts

I am so damn thankful to have the opinion of this intellect who obviously thoroughly watched the games.

Who cares and why should anyone feel differently? We are one of the 2-0 teams. Our 2-0 with close victories vs the Jets and Giants are the least impressive. We have yet to play a complete game. All winning these two shows me is that we are likely a 8-8 or better team. If we had lost either we would be looking like a sub.500 team.

One of the reasons I felt confident betting the various over win totals that were available at the casino was because we have a pretty easy schedule.  We have some pretty lousy teams yet to come: Cincinnati, Miami (2X), Denver, Washington & possibly Pittsburgh.  That's 5-6 extra wins that should be added to the 1st 2 before we even get to some of the games that we're about 50-50 to win.  This is a 9-10 win team at worst.  

I don’t disagree that most of those games that you stated should be wins. But chances are we lose 1 or 2 of them by just laying a dud. However, we will probably win 1-2 that we shouldn’t have either.

Literally the only 2-0 team he took a crap on.  And when you read his reasoning, you can see he hasn’t actually paid attention to this seasons games.  It’s your basic generalist BS

What’s the relevance of the other 5 Bills teams that started 2-0 and missed the playoffs? Any of those players or coaches still on the team?

 

We had the same reactions to criticism after all those other 2-0 starts?

 

Only one thing will fix it.  Keep winning.

Why promote someone who you think wrote something stupid? They don't care if clicks come from people who hate the article.

@Virgil has the "syndrome" unlike anyone around here.......until we win regularly, he's allowed to shake in the corner.

 

It’s a very warm corner

You’re not wrong.  I caved.  

 

It’s just frustrating what’s allowed to pass for as journalism

He has such a punchable face.

I don't know about punchable as much as desirable to unleash a stream of morning urine into after winning an asparagus eating contest the night before.  Just sayin'.

This reminds me of one of the funniest comments I heard about a winning team.  Back in 2000 the NY Giants had the NFC's best record.  Someone in the media called the Giants "the ugliest 1st seed since Martina Navratilova"  The Giants won the NFC, but lost to the Ravens in the Super Bowl.

The Bills were very fortunate to have beaten the Jets. We won because their kicker missed an extra point and a routine field goal attempt. Shortly after the game he was released. A win is a win and good luck is good luck. However, that was a game we should have lost. The next week the Bills handedly beat the Giants. They are not a good team. They were already a bad team even before entering the game with a very depleted receiving unit because of multiple injuries. 

 

I am not going to be bothered about anyone criticizing us for winning the first two games. We are 2-0 and hopefully will be 3-0 against the Bengals, another mediocre team. If we beat the Bengals and lose to the Pats in the next game I still won't be dissatisfied with a 3-1 start. I'm not worried about how others perceive the Bills. Why be so sensitive?

Articles like these only help the Bills keep flying under the radar where it appears McBeane and Co. prefer to fly.

Wonder what he’ll say when we beat the Pats in 2 weeks... probably that the Pats aren’t as good as he thought, LOL!

Naw. If that happens, we’ll get all the good hype going forward until we start to lose. At that point they will say they knew all along we weren’t good

1) Who cares

2) Article was accurate

3) Author issues the term "manifest" in the 49ers section (which they should probably be in our category, Bengals and Bucs arent much better then the jets & =Giants..and Garrapolo is about as "proven" as Allen is)

And yet this is his write up for San Fran on with whom he says to "check back later":

 

Quote

 

7. San Francisco 49ers

Notching two road wins in the Eastern time zone, even against the Buccaneers and Bengals, is a solid accomplishment for a group that went 0-8 last year away from Levi's Stadium. Though Jimmy Garoppolo likely won't have targets running free downfield in the same way he did against Cincinnati, the promise of a fully functional Kyle Shanahan offense is starting to manifest. Investments in the front four are also paying off, as the defensive line is responsible for all seven of the team's sacks so far this year. How the team handles the loss of stalwart left tackle Joe Staley, who is expected to be out eight weeks with a broken leg and will be replaced by sixth-round rookie Justin Skule, could prove telling for the team's postseason fortune.

Anyone who doesn't actually watch football games and bases all opinions on recent history/memory will presume the Bills got "lucky" in their first two and still stink.

 

That's fine.

 

What will be interesting is to hear what those same people say when they are 7-1.

Seriously, what football fan is going to pay attention to any media guy named Middlehurst-Schwartz?
