Today, we'll find out exactly what these 2009 Buffalo Bills are made of. Coming off of a devastating season-opening loss at the hands of New England on Monday Night Football, the Bills will take the field in roughly a half-hour to take on Tampa Bay in their 2009 home opener.
It's going to be a crazy atmosphere. Expectations for this team are raised despite the early loss thanks to the team's unexpectedly strong play. Terrell Owens is making his Ralph Wilson Stadium debut. Buffalo's 50th Anniversary All-Time Bills Team will be unveiled at halftime. It's going to be a day of memories, excitement and hopefully victorious football today.
It's time for these Bills to grow up. It's time to not just avoid the let-down, but prove to the skeptics that the team is better than the fluke-prone pretenders of seasons past. This team has talent, it has youth, and it has energy. The Buccaneers are a formidable foe, but their talent pales in comparison to ours, and this game is on our turf. It's time to show the world exactly how good this team can be. This is your open thread for this must-win game. GO BILLS!
