    My glass is always half full, why spend your life moping? I am not confident in the Bills though, I think they will roll over for the Broncos. I hope I'm wrong.

    To be honest I cant see:

    A) the Bills beating Denver.
    B) The team I watched yesterday beat the Bucs.

    Yesterday for the majority of the game our team looked like they couldnt give a steaming crap if they won or not. Not good... Not good at all....

    I'm an optimist, but only because the miracle is POSSIBLE.

    Whether or not I think it is PROBABLE is a different matter - but next weekend I shall be glued to NFL.Com, same as I was last night, watching the miracle unfold.

    Phil Rivers will take us to the promised land (maybe not this year though).

    7/1. I would expect a little better than that. I may make a trip to Paddy Power clutching my little pound coin anyway!

    I'm always optimistic about my team. I'm pessimistic about many of my team's fans though.

    I was just going to post that I'm a realist. Then I saw Nickel's post. :lol: I'm hoping for the best but totally prepared for the worst case scenario.

    Though it's nice we still have a pulse, I just can't see it happening the way the Bills have tanked (ironically, since beating US) and as crappy a performance as we put on for the first 56 minutes of yesterday.

    I'm a gambler, but not delusional. I ain't touching this one :tdown:

    I predict LT will have 8 yards on 11 carries by halftime next Sunday.

    Guess that makes me a realist too. :lol:

    With Sunday's win... Norv Turner jumped past Bobby Ross for #51 all time with 75 total. [​IMG]

    He now needs only 5 wins to tie Brian Billick :yes:






    (Yeah, yeah... there's still that little matter of the Superbowl) :lol:

    pessimistic, I say 80% chance Denver wins, 30% the Chargers win.

    It's easier to think they'll lose and have a good surprise when they win than thinking they'll win and being disapointed when they lose :icon_shrug: (Damn this season has been crap)

    Pessimist.
    We will lose to Tampa and the Broncos will beat the ailing Bills.

    For most part, optimist.
    Though I hope clenching the division on an 8-8 record and losing the first game will not be enough to secure Norv's job but it probably will. :unsure:

    AJ, how long do you expect all our division rivals to suck?
    I agree with your "what matters is where you finish" theory BUT this is asinine! :icon_evil:

    (How many winning seasons did Billick have in his 9 years?)

    Pessimist. Even if by some miracle they were to pull it out, it would not be as sweet for me. I would know that they didn't give it their best and that makes me very upset.

    Norv on his 11 season as HC is 75-95-1.

    Billick is 80-64-0 and a Super Bowl title in 9 seasons.


    How about this? Since many of you have pointed out that Norv has two Super Bowl titles (as OC), then would it be relivent to say "it took Norv 22 seasons to get 80 wins?" :lol:


    BTW... if he gets the opportunity to have 80 wins, it will be next season. So make it his 12th season.
    Even if he reaches that, his record STILL sucks!!
