The 2 injuries...could the last 12 years not be summed up any easier? Both timeouts lost to injury. I hate that rule, needs modification. Jackson was clearly lost. It has a purpose but he wasn't faking. In a way though I thought these were great breaks. You didn't wanna give old man Brady any time. Thats why I am for a screen play. On the flip side if Jones catches it they can run.

I expected NE to win simply by outclassing the Bills. Fitzy outplayed Brady today(Que the INT and Fumble, neither were his fault) The Bills offense came to play. Only the refs came to suck. Its one thing to simply have a bad call but come on uncatchable is an EASY call. Can't catch a ball out of bounds. Both turned into TDs. The defense once again was atrocious. I will give them a kudos for that late goal line stand. Never thought that would happen. Brady didn't play that good today but they FOUND ways to help him. All the penalties hurt.

Two of the last three games Fitz played good enough to win easily. This team could and should be 5-4. Except the D is a JOKE. All the hardships this terrible D had been through they could have been in a FIRST PLACE TIE. This may work out to our advantage though. Gailey may get a pink slip soon. Which leads me to my diagnosis. The way I view this team...the offense AND YES Fitzpatrick are not the problem and are fine. The problem is EVERYTHING ELSE. The Defense, the Cordinators, the coach, the GM, the CEO and the owner. If this team could play the "D" that analysts kept yacking about they could have been a contender. You give Fitz a stellar D I think this team could be great even with him at the helm. Is he elite? No. But he's not teBow or Sanchez for crying out loud...he does have some ability. There are a lot worse QBs. Hes about middle of the pack. 15 or 16 best.
Solid rant. I give it a 9 out of 10.

I think Fitz has been adequate in each of the last 3 weeks. Sure that INT against Tennessee was awful, but the main reason we lost that game was because the defense couldn't get a stop against Matt ********** Hasselback.

I'm actually in favor of keeping Gailey. He runs the offense relatively well, and I think he'd do a good job developing a young QB. Plus, who are we going to get that's better? Nobody wants to come to Buffalo. More than anything we need a new defensive coordinator. We have the talent on D to at least be average, and a good coordinator could get us there.

The team is playing much better now than they were earlier in the season. We went on the road to face the top 2 teams in the conference and hung in there both games.
