Bills:

The Bills played inspired football on Sunday.  The defense, led by Mario Williams, looked vastly improved from last year.

How bout them Fins!! Not going to lie I thought we were losing that one after Luck was driving down the field with 4 mins left on the game. What a game, not going to scream PLAYOFFS but we're better for sure.

In other positive news, I heard that Aaron Dobson and Kenbrell Thompkins have had special gloves made with 5 thumbs each in preparation for this weekend's game...

Just heard from the 72 Fins.  They are concerned Tannehill is going to take this team to 19-0 and be considered the greatest team in history.

Some of the best looking teams in the league so far have key guys suspended that should make them even better when they return. Irvin for SEA and Miller for DEN.

I think it is only fair that because I ripped the Bills play calling after week 1, I should do the same to the Eagles.

Hurry up offense is great, but if you stick with it while you are clinging to a small lead you are going to lose.

They need to hurry this up before the NFL gets a chance to fully go over the tape from Thursday night.

@cacalle True, but I'm questioning how good the Colts really are.  They seem to have lost a bit of the 2012 magic...(that said, the Fins do look very strong this year)

@SlickVinny They switched a tv to the Raiders-Jags game at the sports bar and everyone got pissed.

Yeah, that shaky secondary of the Bills, so bad they got torched for 350+ against teams with actual NFL QBs.

Oh, wait, no they didn't. Good thing the Jets have such a great WR unit.

@Bpardo95 Mercury Morris will have him kidnapped before he lets that happen,

@nossorc Johnny can play some damn football.  He is going to get a shot at the next level.

True. I'm more worried about Goodell than the court right now.

@SlickVinny @cacalle The colts are better than the 2008 Fins were but not much better.  There was a lot of luck that went into that season.  The defense is still very good.

@SlickVinny @cacalle A lot of it last year was driven in luck and Pagano's health. But they're good considering Luck is the QB

@Bpardo95 @cacalle After two weeks I say yes. Now Tannehill needs some respect from the media. 3-1 against his fellow 2012 draft mates.

@cacalle @SlickVinny No, undrafted and third round pick rookies need to watch their wallets.  These were made by Tyra Banks.

@iycedout @Bpardo95 Elite defense.  Elite qb.  Best deep threat in the game.  Three great RB's.  Solid Oline.

@Bpardo95 @nossorc Can't wait to see Manziel in the NFL.

And I can't wait to see him lying on the ground curled into a fetal position the night after his first game, wondering if the nightmares will ever stop. Getting sacked a record number of times will do that to a fellow.

@SlickVinny Actually, you're probably right. There's no way in hell he'd get away with the garbage he gets away with now, not in the NFL. That's basically why I don't like college football.

@CJ gets two many carries @Bpardo95 @nossorc doubt he's a first round pick, although maybe, but if he can get on a team that will teach him humility and let him learn an NFL offense, he could be an exciting guy to watch.

I could see the Saints as a destination.
