Is it just me, or does it seem as though, especially in the last few years, that Buffalo beats themselves before stepping onto the field? I have never seen coachs/players make so many excuses for a loss. I am addicted to Buffalo Rumblings and I do see that the better portion of the people on this site know WAY more about the inner workings of offense/defense/football in general, than I do. How many seasons have we been playing against the 3-4 defense? Why have we never seriously addressed this issue? I think I remember Trent saying "I was impressed with their defense, etc" and "3 of the players on their defense went to the pro-bowl", or "We have to be better prepared for this kind of defense". That sounds to me, like someone's making excuses. Dick Jauron - "It was a disappointing night," Jauron said. "The good news is that it's preseason. We knew we had a long way to go, and this should show us that we have a long way to go. We've got to get back to work on Monday." We started camp a week early? We played an extra pre-season game due to the HOF. Why do we have "Such a long way to go"? Anyway, the link above is a good article. After reading the articles you guys post on this site I always think to myself "Wow, these guys really know their stuff", so it would be nice to haer what you think about my random thoughts / the above article.
