In 2010, the Buffalo Bills went 4-12. I believe that an atrocious defense is what lost us the majority of those 12 games. Our offense put up more points than it had in years. In 2011, Buffalo has significantly upgraded its Defense. With a better D, I believe Fitzpatrick’s play will result in wins. He has demonstrated that he can take command and move this offense forward. That leadership will yield victory for the Buffalo Bills in 2011. See my Win/Loss prediction after the jump.
I know that this is wildly optimistic, but this is my prediction for the 2011 season. The Buffalo Bills go 10-6. I want this posted on the internet and stamped with a date. We’ll see after Week 17 how accurate I was.

How likely is my prediction of a 10-6 Bills season to happen?
Not likely. You underestimated the Bills. They'll go undefeated. (10 votes)
Very Likely. I think you nailed it. (26 votes)
Close, but you gave the Bills too much credit. They'll be around .500 (116 votes)
Are you huffing paint fumes? How can you possibly demonstrate this much optimism after being a Bills fan for 25 years?! The Bills will be picking in the top 3 once again in the 2012 Draft! (61 votes)
