I just watched NE-Jets game, quite interesting to rate the Bills D.

One thing I can say is that the Patriots receivers got a lot more separation against the Bills secondary then they did against the Jets, especially in the middle. Olsen and Smith in the slot could do wonders. We really need to attack the middle.
Second: that NE front 7 is A LOT weaker than ours. We should be able to create a lot of pressure in EJ's face. Please, Alexander or someone else, don't do stupid things, you won't need it.
Thirth: NE OL protected Brady very good, if you see how Bills front 7 did against them... If our OL can give Cam some time, I can't see how we can lose that game.


While I agree with you about Olsen and Smith, does anyone really think that is the best course of action anymore? While its good for fantasy it's not good for us. We need to have plays with Ginn and Lafell as the number one option and finally use Steve as a decoy. He's been our number one target forever and I have never seen a game where we followed a gameplan using Smith in other ways. The defense keys on Smith, design plays to use Smith to get Ginn open over the top and Olsen over the middle.

Just my idea, not from Madden although it does work. Cam has to stop staring down Smith. Against the Seahawks Lafell was targeted twice, and Ginn once and the Seahawks played it stopping our big plays and baiting Cam into contained underneath throws.

A WHOLE PIE!

combine this with the dareus comments, and i'm getting a sense that the bills might be considering themselves to be at a higher level than this lowly team from the south. i think there really is a lack of respect for the panthers. coming from a team that hasn't deserved respect in over a decade this would be very funny.

I don't think anyone down here is skeered of the EJ Manuel air attack.

 

It's time for Armanti to make his presence felt, he or Hixon one need to give us a real contribution this weekend.

Why does everyone think New England has a better front 7? The disrespect is staggering

 

 

Two things imo... Wilfork and their "mystique" or whatever...

 

For the record, I loathe New England.  I hope that when we play them, Johnson and Hardy collide about 6 yards behind the line of scrimmage and reduce Tom Brady to various scattered body parts amongst the players feet.

 

Having said that, Vince Wilfork is a beast.  Hell of an athlete, but he's getting old...

 

We're a small market team that has never gotten much respect.  With our record the past few years, why would we?

They are actually a good front 7 and have the players to prove it.

 

We complain that no one knows the Panthers when making comments regarding our squad...well it goes both ways as we sound ignorant when discussing other teams.

Their front 7 is good, but I think ours is quite a bit better.

Where did they rank in d lat year? 22nd?

Where they were drafted means little if they don't produce.

While Carolinas front 7 is better NEs is nothing to write off. They have 3 lbs that were all highly drafted Spikes, Hightower, and Mayo

Their line has Wilfork who is a HoF lineman and Chandler who if not for Kuechly being all world would be the best defensive prospect to come out of the 2012 draft

 

Don't forget Ninkovich. 

 

Yeah, their line is not exactly trash.  I could see how people who aren't familiar with the Panthers giving the Patsies D-line the nod, but I still think that some of it is just due to the Patriots reputation for winning in general.  I suspect that everyone will know our D-line by mid-season, and Bills fan will get a terse introduction this Sunday.

We witnessed last night that Tom Brady has a worse wide receiver position to be in than the Panthers. Sorry Sal, it wasn't the Buffalo defense that held Brady, it was Brady's lack of NFL caliber receivers.

That's not a fair statement. NE had Vereen and Amandola for the Buffalo game, and they were sorely missed last night.

Buffalo saw a NE team with 3 guys that could catch the ball. The Jets only faced a team with 1.
