Go on the record: The concern-o-meter!

Recommended Posts

Not concerned at all.  We will win some.  We will lose some.  Then maybe we will win a playoff game too.  Either way, my expectations of this season are already exceeded.  I am super happy with this team right now.  I feel like we are moving in the direction of a continual contender.  We aren't quite there yet, but a few more pieces and a little more experience/improvement... and I believe we have a damn team again!

OK, we all know that people around here just love to cling to their concern, so I've invented a method of measuring the pulse of TSW posters' concern.


Behold: THE CONCERN-O-METER!

 

Now's your chance to go on the record and let free your demons of concern by listing in this thread for all to see your concern level going into the last five games of the year! Without further ado, I ask you this:

 

On a scale of 1 to 10, where 1 is Genghis Khan and 10 is a doddering old woman afraid of everything she sees on her day filled with Cable TV news, how concerned are you about the final 5 games of this season?

1 and done. 

 

If they can beat the Cowboys, Jets and Pats. I can see this team being a real contender this year.

0. Being 8-3 in the last week of November with a tough run of games to come is mint.

 

I can think of way more concerning scenarios than this. 

 

Enjoy.

Like a 3. I don’t see this team going 0-5 or 1-4. 2-3 or 3-2 is more their style. 
The Bills will won enough to make the playoffs. That I’m pretty sure of.

He lost me when he got all “mathy”. 

 

I’ll be 100% concerned one week at a time. It’s the NFL, anything can happen. On to Dallas and a great Thanksgiving Day celebration (I pray!).

I’d probably throw in the Steelers before the Pats* (because, well,  I’ve been paying attention the last 20 years), but I think we CAN beat anyone left on the schedule.

Eight.

 

I see only two winnable games left on the schedule.    My score may change based on how the other wildcard contenders finish out...

To not be concerned about the remaining five games on our schedule is just ignorance.

 

Some people seem to think that anyone who expresses just an ounce of concern is a Chicken Little. I've heard that same nonsense for so many years now, and it gets old.

 

Yeah, being a Bills fan IS TOUGH... It's HEARTBREAKING... it's ANXIETY because WE GIVE A DAMN ABOUT OUR TEAM, unlike places like Cleveland or Miami. 

 

My take- Dallas is the key to making the playoffs, regardless of NFC affiliation. Out of the five games, Dallas is the one I think we have the best chance at winning, albeit the way they lost in Foxboro could make it more difficult. Historically we don't do well against the Steelers or Ravens. So long as the Steelers have that defense, we're going to be in a huge dogfight. The Ravens are the most complete team in the AFC. The Cheatriots in Foxboro is an annual nightmare that knifes us in new ways like we're the pinata. To close, the Jets have gained momentum and are playing better and better- division rivalries are always dangerous.

 

So, I'm going to rate my concern at a chain smoking sailor in the Strait of Hormuz at an 8. All tough games, almost all AFC. It's honest.

Not concerned at all

 

I think we make the playoffs

I think we are not ready for a deep playoff run this year

 

We are into YEAR ONE of the first major rebiuld I have seen the bills do in my lifetime (and I have been a bills fan for a long long time)

 

9 new starters on offense

2nd year very raw but high ceiling QB

Offense still have some holes

Offensive line completely retooled

 

NEXT year is the beginning of our deep playoff runs

I'm at like a 6.5 to 7. I was at a 9 before the Bills offense woke up and the defense got its mojo back.

I feel weirdly confident about the Cowboys and Ravens games, and weirdly terrified of the Steelers and Jets games.

I was at a 4 until I read THIS!!!!

Based on the improvement I have seen in the trenches and Josh looking better, I'm not concerned about any team in the league being that mcuh better than buffalo, despite what the media thinks.  Defenses and running games travel.  New England's offense sucks.  Dallas is on the verge of a meltdown, the Jets are pretending and the Steelers...nvm.  The Bills can hang with anyone.  I see them peaking now, like good playoff teams should, in Nov. and Dec.  The Ravens appear to be on another level with Lamar.  That is a game I'm not too confident in, but it will be close.

I am like a 3. I really think this team will upset one of the following "Big Three" Cowboys, Ravens, or Patriots. Wins against Steelers and Jets are not gimmies but I think we will. That has us at 11-5. No reason to panic.

For the Bills, I am about at a 4. Steelers are imploding and we should beat them as well as the Jets. Potentially compete with Ravens and Patriots and honestly I'm expecting them to have a shot against the Cowboys.

 

For the WC race I'm a little bit more concerned, maybe a 6. Even at 10 wins we need some other teams to lose a few. We've got Raiders, Titans, Colts, Texans all kind of bunched up here. Cleveland is sitting there at 6 wins and if they win out they have the tiebreaker over us.

Bills are a minimum 2 games up on all the other remaining wild card contenders, fwiw, and almost ALL these teams have to play each other.

Cleveland are sitting at 5 wins. If the Bills get to 10 they have to win out and I just don't see it. 

 

If the Bills get to 10 they are in.

I range between 7 and 10 on the concern o meter, depending on team we play and alcohol consumption..,. Outside of that nada,  but I do worry about some of my fellow fans emotional states...

 

Go Bills!!!
