I smell blood. (RE our opponents)

I'm sorry but the NY Jets fiasco is frigging hilarious.

And since I pay zero attention to teams not named Carolina Panthers, somebody tell me what happened to EJ Manual in Buffalo. Though he was gonna be starting.

 

 

Manual had some work done on his knee. Buffalo even brought in Matt Leinhart and John Beck for a workout.  Their QB situation is desperate at the moment with Kolb out with concussion.

Like last year when we were Quinned by KC.

 

Or Andre Brown with his 30.0 YPC when we played the Giants.  I think Cruz or Nicks was out that game too.

Question, aren't the Falcons 0-3? Isn't it usually a bad omen to go 0-4 in the preseason?

 

Plus their OL is about as bad as ours, I am hoping for at least 5 sacks a game against them.

Re: Jeff Tuel - I'm not going to lie, I've watched all three Bills' preseason games and honestly, he looks to be just as good as EJ Manuel, albeit with a different skillset, and MUCH better than Kolb. I wouldn't be surprised if he's a starter for a team in the league one day.

I guess the jury is out on that one.

 

 

During a ten-year period from 1997 to 2007, twominutewarning.com looked at 22 teams who had a winless preseason. Only four of those teams went on to win ten or more games. This article was written at the end of the 2008 preseason when the New England Patriots went 0-4.
 
Guess where the Patriots ended up in the standings after the 2008 season? 11-5. You could say, while statistics matter some, they certainly don't mean the future of a winless team is set in stone. Here is a look at other teams whose preseason results were the opposite of their regular season.

Bucs offensive line is pretty much as awful as ours with Nicks out indefinitely, and Josh Freeman has been underwhelming. I would not be surprised if we saw Glennon by the time we play the Bucs.

Dolphins defense also yielded 63 total yards to the Bucs in the first half (without Doug Martin) and made Freeman look worse than normal. 

 

Tannehill also playing without his starting TE and a backup right guard was over 90 qb rating, 1 td (2 others dropped) and 150 yards in 1 half of play. Tannehill hasn't thrown a pick all preseason and is over a 100 qb rating this exhibition season without a decent run game. (Miller will be fine btw he has a 4.3 ypc average with 73 yards on 17 carries and a td this preseason) 

 

I am excited for November 24th.....the Panthers and Dolphins have a lot of similarities.
