    In the last few days I saw the Jets rated as the worst team and I have seen a lot of criticism of the Bills. In fact, their sophomore DE was arrested with a gun this morning which I assume will be an issue.
    We should be able to sweep them and if we split with the Pats we are 5-1, with ten other games.
    Just 5-5 in those makes us 10-6.

    What kind of thread is this? Talking about how bad the jets and bills will be or just the schedule in general?

    We shall see. I would like to go 5-1 in AFC East, but I don't think any team other than than the Patriots have won 5 AFC East games in a season since the Colts left the division in 2002.

    This X 1000. I for one think it will be the reality of this season.

    2 of the last 3 games are vs the bills.
    i'd rather not have to count on us sweeping them to reach ten wins.

    That December 24th game against Kansas City will be huge. Possibly playing for the last playoff spot.

    I hate assuming we'll beat anybody. Hopefully this team keeps using the one game at a time mentality....if they do, everything will fall into place. I believe we have the talent to be special, but EVERY Sunday is a battle!

    Buffalo played Miami well last year so I wouldn't assume them to be a pushover. I mean the Bills have over 500 yards of offense in that December game and still lost.

    The Jets stink and if the Dolphins want to remain being relevant, they need to beat teams like them.

    Buffalo DT, Adolphus Washington was just arrested this week on a weapons charge.

    Those two games we play against the Bills in December concern me, they played well against us last season and should be another battle. As far as the Jets.....I never take them lightly no matter how bad they suck.

    The last 6 weeks in general sucks. Patriots, Broncos, Patriots, Bills, Chiefs, Bills.

    We play the Patriots twice in 15 days and the Bills twice in 14 days over the last 6 weeks of the season. The good news is that we will have TJ McDonald for those games.

    I think we need a really fast start to be able to make it to the postseason. 4-1 in the first 5 is a big ask but we might need it. From the Falcons forward to the game at the Bills we have some heavy sledding. The last 6 aren't exactly straightforward either.

    I just can't imagine him having that much of an impact this year being that he will have no connections or camaraderie with the defense and secondary members. This isn't a plug and play sport.

    NO connections or comaraderie? NONE? He will be here all camp long and all through the PS games. He is also a vet and is already making those connections. It's not like he's a rookie. He's been here since the first of April. That's 5 months here and then he cannot report for two months. If we get into a scenario where Nate Allen is getting roasted or injured and Michael Thomas is starting, he will be a welcome addition.

    Gameday experience is critical and far more important.

    And what does it matter that he's been here since the first of April when training camp hasn't even begun yet?

    Well, that's obvious (game day experience) but you don't think he has been hanging with ANY of his teammates? You're making him out to be some sort of ghost that no one socializes (or practices) with but I doubt that's the case. He'll get as much work (full practice reps) as he can according to Gase.

    I said no such thing. That's your assumption.

    What matters is that when it comes time to play that he is seeing the same things his teammates are with little to no communication in the seconds ticking down before the ball is snapped. That only comes with playing experience and extensive team film work. Something he won't have for half the season. It would be one thing if he had played for us last year and had some familiarity but that is obviously not the case. I'm just not expecting much nor for McDonald to come in and make a significant difference on the defense for the last 8 games.

    Let me guess, is he also in the best shape of his life?

    "No" means "No".

    Jesus ****ing christ, kid.

    Your interpretation was that I was making him to be some some sort of "ghost" that no one talks to and that's what I was alluding to with the quote in your post #21. (to further clarify the actual statement in http quotes, not the sentence you have in quotes)

    You really think my intention of that post was that McDonald was bound, tied, and gagged in some ****ing Davie office closest with no interaction with teammates whatsoever? Get a grip.

    To be fair, that's always a good thing to talk about

    I love the start of the schedule (think we COULD start 4-1 or even 5-0 ) but damn then it really gets rough . Gotta sweep the Jills and Jest for sure
