Of course going into the season, every NFL team starts 0-0, but that doesn’t stop the ‘experts’ including ESPN in drilling their own opinions about how teams and players will play this season.
It first started this morning on Sportscenter where the Monday Night Football crew sat around and predicted how many games each team in the AFC East will win.
When it came time to talk about the Bills, the questions was: Will the Buffalo Bills win more or less than five games?
Ron Jaworski answer was less because “Chan Gailey needs a little bit of time to get his type of players in that organizations.”
Jon Gruden was the next to answer and although he didn’t answer the question directly, he certainly made his feelings on the Bills well known:”They’re just not as good as these other teams in this league is how I see it, Jaws. C.J. Spiller, though, he’s the best player in this year’s draft.”

Next Up came ESPN’s John Clayton’s QB Rankings on ESPN.com entering the season and can anyone guess where Trent Edwards ended up?
31 out of 33 with only Matt Moore and Jake Delhomme behind him, and here is Clayton’s explanation.
“Analysis: Call it deja Bills. When Edwards entered the league in 2007, the Bills were a bottled-up offense desperately looking for receivers who could pull coverage away from Lee Evans. Edwards’ lone target remains Evans, but the offensive line is now much worse. Chance of being elite: 0 percent”

Of course we shouldn’t expect the Bills to be ranked anywhere but last due to their lack of success throughout the years, but day after day of hearing the hate gets old real fast. I only hope Chan Gailey forces his players to read all of the negativity and use it as added fuel to turn some heads in 2010.
