They will never admit this, but the coaching staff had to plan on the defense carrying the team for the first half of the season. The difference between the Bills game and the Raiders game was the defense didn't win it for them ... with good cause given they lost 2 starters during the game and started the game without 2 other starters.

I think you're right and that means we may be in trouble until the Oline improves and or we get some of these injured defensive guys back. Even if all this happens I don't think our defense is strong enough for Ben to be just a game manager. Based on what we've seen from him the last few years I'm afraid that's all he'll be at this point.
I think at this point the key for us is to get the running game going or we will be watching the playoffs from the couch.

Nothing gets an offense right like playing the Bungles! Time for that thread!
