Good luck guys. Hope to see no injuries.

It will be interesting to see Chris Cook up against Stevie Johnson. Matt Kalil vs. Williams/Anderson, and to see the progression of Christian Ponder.

How's Thigpen looking? I'm still kinda mad we lost him. Sad


Him and VY both struggled at the start of camp but they are both starting to heat it up and are playing great. Right now I think VY has the edge of Thiggy. So my guess is Thigpen gets cut. Not because of poor play but VY is starting to learn the playbook and outperform him.

Also Williams will match up with your RT. I assume Kalil is your LT so he would be matching up with Kelsay and Anderson.

Things I'm excited to see tonight.

1. What kind of game plan Gailey has installed.
2. Freddy and CJ getting to run the ball a little bit more.
3. See how our young tackles do against the powerful mullet.
4. How our LBs and DBs fare against Minny's young TE Corp.
5. VY getting to play with the 2nd team O.
6. I'm always excited to see our newly revamped DLine again.
7. Mario Williams after he takes his shoulder pads off... Looks like he still has them on ... he is a monster!
8. Being able to watch the game LIVE lol

I'm looking forward to this game, almost as much as the first one.

The first game I am just super excited to see football finally back with some real action against other teams.

The second and third games are the most important, for showing us how our team may be looking come season opener.

The fourth I will watch only because I'm that dedicated.


Things I'm looking for in this game:

How both lines look, even though I'm really not worried about them. More in particular the OT's on offense.

How the rookies and second year players are doing.

Looking forward to seeing Vince hopefully outplay Tyler.

Marcus Easley, Scott McKillop, Potter and Powell.

Sadly one guy I really don't care for that much is Alex Carrington which this may have a lot to do with the depth across the line. I still am rooting for Troup a lot and I am in the minority thinking he makes the roster.

Here's to an injury-free game, Bills fans!

I just want to say, I live in an area overpopulated with New England fans, and IMO one of the best moments last season was seeing the Bills beat the Patriots. The looks on my friends' faces were priceless. Smile

We kind of enjoyed it too! Laughing

Was just watching some youtube videos of Ponder, including Jaws QB Countdown piece on him. Think I may have underestimated him. Best of luck this season!

Can't wait to see Bills defense against these Viking TEs. Nice warm up for the Patriots offense. Hope to see Gilmore cover their TEs to see if he can indeed cover Gronk which Gailey said he would do.

At least the Bills were able to get a couple of sacks on that drive. They didn't have any last week.

Only one first down isn't going to cut it.

These refs are garbage. The NFL has got to do something about this.. this isn't the first game where I've seen HORRIBLE calls.

We desperately needed to prove we can get pressure. We sure spent enough money.

This is not looking good on offense. No real rhythm out there.

Defense has some positives... defense line is looking strong. Still giving up sloppy plays.
