Joe: I think the Bills will go 5-11 this year. To me, the biggest goal for the team has to be for individual players to play better. Yeah..not exactly rocket science. Last year, Fitzpatrick, Stevie, Williams and Eric Wood played well. All four of them need to keep it up for this year and hopefully, 3-4 other guys will play like the foursome did last year. Maybe it will be Spiller? How about McKelvin? George Wilson? Alex Carrington? Marcell Dareus? Pick a name. Overall, I think the defense will play much better than their pathetic showing from last year. If Merriman plays the same way he did in 2006 and stays healthy, I think the defense could be in the top 12. However, if he goes down, I think they will be in the low 20's because they still won't have a decent enough pass rush. Offensively, the line is the biggest question mark. Actually, what am I saying? We already know they answer, they are not really good. As for Fitzpatrick, he's the key to the offense. We saw how he looks when he gets time to throw the football, but if he has someone in his face, Fitz tends to be erratic. I think the offense will still be in that low 20's range. Problem is that the schedule is tough for the Bills and they still have a number of question marks. NFC East isn't a pushover division and the AFC East has the Jets and Pats. Not easy. Realistically, the Bills are a year or two away. Again, if you want progress, new individuals need to step-up.
