The Bills come to visit Saturday. As usual, there's not much "let's check out the opposition" chatter in the forums but I did either run across or get linked to a couple of interesting things.


Some weren't so interesting-or at least interesting in an odd sort of way.

I'll give you an example.

I ran across a thread on one Bills board with the following title.

"Bills vs. Redskins", number of posts, 15.

Aha, I thougt, paydirt!

This was the OP.

Will there be any bars in Toronto or nearby showing Bills vs Redskins game Saturday?



The following fourteen posts are about sports bars, and Toronto-including one suggesting a trip to-get this-Herndon VA to Jimmy's Old Town Tavern.


Apparently a bunch of Bills fans hang out there.



Geez. :insane:

I can't wait for the actual season to start.



One fan did post a brief take on the game- with no follow up comments yet.

No surprise there.

Now I know its just preseason, no one cares too much but as I've read before winning breeds winning and you gain positive morale/ momentum and fans get excited, so its all good. With that being said on Saturday vs Washington on the road, Buffalo will be playing their 1st team for hopefully a full half to 3/4 quarter of the game. Our defense has a chance to explode and wreak havoc on washington who will be playing Rex Grossman and Pat White the whole game. With No RG3 and now Cousins out til opener, this really excites me to see how feisty our defense can play knowing we have a 3rd string QB at the helm. Now for the offense, I imagine the D and Special teams will produce points but I'm really looking for Spiller/Jackson to get alot of carries and see if Kolb can gain chemsitry with Stevie/Woods/Goodwin. I think we need to see a little extra from the TE position as it has been quiet and look to see if Chandler plays more and how Gragg is. Graggs name has been mentioned alot in OTA's but he's kind of been quiet through preseason. This is usually the most important game as you get a sense of what our team can do with starters playing alot so I really want to see the O-Line gel and find the compatable group to mesh together and I lastly want to see a WR break away and become the clear cut favorite for the Number 5/6 spot. See what Hogan/Rogers/Sampson/Smith could do. I have the Wr's as Stevie, Woods, Graham, Goodwin, and I think Easley is a lock. If they take 1 or 2 more depends on the numbers game but so far I would give the edge to Hogan even though Rogers seems to have the most upside and a bigger outside threat as Hogan is kind of the slant pattern type receiver and I would like a bigger receiever to help out with blocking when Spiller bust out 50 yard TD runs. Let me know how you guys feel about the matchup even though it is a Preseason game.





In travelling through Billsfansland searching for input on Saturday's game I was linked to two interesting articles by blogger Scott DelleFave in articles with the following title;

Jimmy is from Western NY and his Father was a professor at UB, so yeah... a lot of WNY'ers hang out at that place... ;)

My Wife is from Buffalo (Williamsville, actually). She wanted an early exit from the game.
