The game against the Jets today is obviously going to be important to the division and conference standings.
If the Bills win - and stay healthy(knock on coffee table) - then most people will be expecting us to make a good run at the division title, and would take a wild card spot, if need be. Anything less would be fairly disappointing, in my opinion.
If the Bills lose - or lose Fitz, etc (knock on same wood) - then there are going to be some pretty tempered expectations over this team's ability to claim a playoff stpot in the competitive AFC. Making the playoffs would clearly be an uphill struggle; again, my opinion.
I know I should have posted this earlier in the week - but I'm curious of ya'll's(double apostophe!) opinions going into this game; is missing the playoffs good enough? Should we settle for nothing less after 11 years?
I say missing the playoffs is ok at this point. I'd still like to see 9-7 or 10-6, however. If we win today then that will probably change my opinion of missing out on the playoffs. However, my 5 month old son is intently watching me type this, and wearing his Bills attire in preparation of a Bills' victory. He says we lift the trophy. Period. What do you say?
