Bills/Seahawks: Post Game Pub

New, comments

Want even more to talk about regarding the Buffalo Bills' thrilling 34-10 opening day victory over the Seattle Seahawks?  Here's what's being said about our Bills (with perhaps an extra snippet about a certain injured quarterback) this morning.

On Marcus Stroud...

It's only one game, but Stroud's impact was evident from the outset. Linebackers Kawika Mitchell and Paul Posluszny flowed to the ball. Defensive end Aaron Schobel played at a Pro Bowl level. Kyle Williams could have been mistaken for Pat Williams. The secondary played with a noticeable edge.  - Jerry Sullivan, Buffalo News

On the offensive line...

But people shouldn’t have worried. Walker was solid as a run blocker and pass protector. Chambers might have been even better. He minimized the impact of Seattle All-Pro left defensive end Patrick Kerney, who had just two tackles. Kerney recorded the Seahawks’ only sack of the game, but Edwards appeared to hold the ball too long.  - Allen Wilson, Buffalo News

Roscoe on Roscoe...

“You’ve just got to have that swagger back there,” said Parrish, who led the NFL with a 16.3-yard average last season. “That’s the key, you know? When I return punts I try to have fun and trusting the guys in front of me, just knowing they are going to do a good job blocking. That first man you just can never let him tackle you.”  - Buffalo News

On Dick Jauron...

For crying out loud, Dick. Just admit it. Winning the opener, especially in such impressive and convincing fashion, was a huge deal for a team that hasn't come out of September with a record above .500 in this millennium, which, by the way, coincides perfectly with the Bills' eight-year playoff drought.  - Democrat and Chronicle

On the AFC East...

New kings of the AFC East: Buffalo Bills.  The Jets are right there, too, but the Bills distinguished themselves with a complete 34-10 victory over the Seattle Seahawks. The Bills also have Pro Bowl T Jason Peters returning to practice on Monday after a 43-day holdout.  - Tim Graham, ESPN.com

Patriots team source on Tom Brady's knee injury...

“It’s bad,” a team source said. “We’re going to have to play without him.”  - Michael Silver, Yahoo Sports
