Halfway through the season we sit at 3-5 and have been, for the most part very competitive in all our games. EJ is possibily ahead of schedule as he may practice soon, and the week off should really help CJ. Our defense has been coming together amazingly and is finally healthy.

With all that said, where do you guys see us finishing at the end of the season with a relatively easy schedule.

Bills remaining games:

KC
@Pitt
NYJ
Bye
Atl (in Toronto)
@Tampa Bay
@Jacksonville
Miami
@New England

I see us at 8-8. I definitely think we can win 9 if not 10 games this year...but we are likely to slip up at one point and lose to a team we shouldn't.

I'm hoping 8-8.. After next week they are all winnable games IMO especially if NE wraps up the division by week 17

I think 8 is probably best case scenario.. I think 5 is probably worst case scenario..

If forced to pick a single number I would guess 6-10 depending on when Manuel comes back and how he looks..


I think we had to expect that this would be a tough year, but hopefully productive in seasoning some of our younger guys.. Its a shame Manuel's injury has prevented him from fully taking advantage of this year..

I think we have some positives.. Kiko and Dareus are really breaking out.. Mario and Kyle are still dominant.. Our running backs are still productive even with injuries..

I also think our weaknesses have shown majorly.. Inconsistent play at QB (even when Manuel was healthy), below average offensive line, and lack of depth (if not flat out weakness at #2 CB) in the secondary..

There is no shortage of top 10 worthy offensive linemen, and with Cordy Glenn's versatility we can choose to go after guard OR tackle.. There is not a ton to love in the draft at corner, but as it stands there are a lot of solid options that will fly off the board in the late 1st and early 2nd..

If we can grab a franchise offensive lineman and a good corner in the 2nd I will be a very happy camper and optimistic about our future..


But even more important than 2nd half wins are, I want to see how Manuel progresses in the last handful of games..

I am hoping for 8-8, but IF we beat KC alot of outsiders are picking us as darkhorse WC contenders.

I like our defensive match up with KC and seriously think the unbeaten Chiefs are in for a fight sunday.

I think it's in the Bills best interest to sign Thad Lewis long term as our QB2 behind Manuel

According to reports, Flynn and Tuel split first team reps today, Thad is "50-50" fo the Chiefs game.

Not a good start so far. Laughing

For our next stadium, all I want, ALL I WANT, is to not have it built on what must be 15 Indian graveyards. Laughing

I literally screamed at the top of my lungs "We are bleeping CURSED!" when I saw that going by on the ESPN ticker. Laughing

We seriously can't catch a break at all.

Who is claiming "darkhorse WC contenders"? That would require 6-2 at MINIMUM, likely 7-1 in the second half of the season.. I really do not think that is realistic in the slightest..

That said, I think KC is the weakest 8-0 team in recent memory and if our QB play is a little more consistent we definitely could hand them their first loss..

Yeah us and a Wild card this year is just NOT going to happen. Even if we did go on a big run late this season.

I Think KC, NYJ, TB, Jac and Miami are wins and therefore have us at 8-8.

I can't see us wining in Pitt, and we always play bad in Toronto. and well NE is NE after all..
