are we forgetting someone?

There is alot to be excited about for bills fans right now.. so much that (for me at least) its easy leave some out when recognizing who has stepped it up so far this season.

From EJ living up to his expectations as our 1st round pick, to Super Mario finally looking like he is worth 100 Million.Of course Coach Marrone got his first win today and it seems he has these players ready to play on Sundays. And we can't forget Kiko, looking like a stud and a solid centerpiece of this D for years to come. The list goes on and on but there is one name that i haven't heard much of (if at all)...

And that name would be MIKE PETTINE.

Through the first 2 weeks, this defense has been impressive to say the least. They look more aggressive than I have ever seen in my relatively short time as a Bills fan. We have known all along how much talent we have on that side of the ball, and Pettine has showed so far that he knows how to utilize it. We basically have the same roster we had last year (plus Alonso, minus Byrd/Gilmore), yet they look like a completely different group. Obviously, the last drive today against Carolina was key in the win.. but without this defense holding them to field goals after the fumble and INT, we dont have a chance in that game.

I think when you compare last season's performance with our defense this year, it shows how important a coordinator is to running an effective defense. I feel that Pettine deserves a lot of credit for turning around this defensive unit and hope they continue to get better as the year goes on. Definitely exciting.


Who else do you guys think isn't getting talked about enough?? Give them a shout out in the comments so we can give them the credit they deserve!!! Thanks and GO BILLSS
