My updated top 5 wishlist for our 1st pick (realistic choices only, obviously Luck etc would be at top )

1.Michael Floyd
2.Luke Kuechly
3.Dre Kirkpatrick
4.Jonathan Martin
5.Melvin Ingram

I want nothing to do with Reiff or Tannehill, I think both will be busts.My dream scenario is to trade down to the ~20 range and acquire another 2nd and draft Cordy Glenn.

1st-Cordy Glenn
2nd-WR
2nd-OLB
3rd-CB
4th-OT
4th-CB

If we can draft those positions I would be ecstatic, and it would definitely provide depth everywhere.Our DL is set, and drafting a starting OLB and a #2 WR in round 2 would be great.Add 2 corners and an OT, and playoffs are a possibility.

Saw on twitter - Bills get a Thursday night home primetime game against Miami on 11/15.

All teams get a prime time Thursday game this year... I am somewhat shocked that it is a home game to be perfectly honest though.

Here's the entire Bills schedule: http://www.whosay.com/buffalobills/photos/160143

I'm surprised they didn't get any national games (besides the required Thursday game) what with signing Mario Williams. Not even his return to Houston!

I'm kind of glad they didn't get a Monday night game....knowing Buffalo's recent history of heartbreak on MNF.

If we actually manage to have a good season, I could see Bills-Pats getting flexed over a lame Texans-Bears matchup. Only other compelling game that week is Cowboys-Eagles.

But yeah, I don't see a whole lot of Bills games up there that would get bumped to primetime

Bills/Texans would have made a solid MNF offering.

Interesting they have back-to-back games @SF and @Arizona. Wonder if they'll stay out West that whole week.

Bills/Jets final week certainly has the potential to have playoff implications.

going by how our 2012 opponents fared this past season, that's a fairly easy schedule, no?

I thought the last week of the season wasn't flex eligible. But yeah, that has huge potential as an important game

The last week actually is most flex-eligible, as CBS/FOX aren't allowed to protect any week 17 games. NBC basically can choose the one that has the most playoff implications and show that. Unlike the other weeks, no game is tentatively scheduled for that time slot, they wait until week 16 to determine the SNF game.

Previous years week 17 flexes include: Cowboys/Giants last year, Rams/Seahawks the year before (aka Best of the Worst division title race), Bengals/Jets in 2009 (Wild Card spot for grabs), Chargers/Broncos in 2008 (8-8 division title race).

Stevie Johnson addressed this a million times...he says he never tries to hurt anyone on purpose, he was just trying to make a block and it looked like Fred Jackson might go all the way on the play. He said he always tries to follow through on his blocks because you never know when Jackson is going to break one. I believe Stevie Johnson also called him to apologize and stuff.

Excited for that. My boss and I were texting back and forth about it. I let him know I will be taking off the Friday after. I expect him to do the same.

My dad goes crazy every year when they have 3 home games in December...he has season tickets but he's getting up there in age and it's a long drive for us to get out there. I'm going to have to hear about it tomorrow.

Only 4 games against playoff teams from last year? Nice draw for us.

Lets go for some early and absolutely speculative predictions (and I'm assuming the Bills take Reiff in the first round btw with Little going in the 2nd to us)

@NyJ- Win---We have team chemistry and a unified front. They have...Tebow?
KC-Win----Tough win because they have a great ground game but Kyle Williams won't be injured this soon in the season and their secondary is getting depleted.
@Cleveland-Win---This should be an easy win.
New England-Win---I think that we will be ready for this one and I think their defense is suspect.
@SF-Loss-----They're going to swarm Fitzy.
@Arizona-Win-----They will be bottom feeders this season
Tennessee-Win----Once again, the defense is suspect and Hasselbeck is aging.
@Hou-Loss-----I think they get up for this game
@NE-Loss----Because tradition says so
Miami-Win---Night game? At Home? Looking to turn things around against a crap team??
@Indy-Win----Not much to think about here.
Jax-Win----They'll put up a fight but Gabbert will struggle in bad weather
StL-Win---Until Bradford shows that last season was an anamoly
Seattle-Loss----We struggle in Toronto and if Flynn pans out, they're a good team.
@Miami-Win----They're just so terrible.
NYJ-Win---For the divisional crown at home? Bring it on.

12-4 How does this happen??? Argue with me if you disagree because I'm still struggling to believe this.

Um...I expect to be 3-6 before that night game right now. Looking at that. Loss to the jets yes. Niners yes. Cards in arizona yes. Texans yes. Pats duh ski.

@sf then @ari? Bush league.

Why do you think the Cards and Jets games are losses at this point? New York has a subpar QB, an average ground game, and a good defense. We have an above average QB, a good ground game, and what looks to be a good defense. The Jets just don't scare me like they used to.

As for Arizona, while I think Fitzgerald will have a field day with our smallish corners, I don't see our offense having much trouble putting up points either.

Then 5 of last 7 at home? I'll take that compromise!!

I hate Thursday night games, teams are too tired with only 3 full days in between them.

Jets open as 6 point favorites for the opener; seems like a legitimate reason to think that game is a loss. Not saying it will be but their simulators are world class. That game is a coin flip at best.
