Bills 4-0?

He has some of the best numbers of all QB’s in the NFL, even though he is a nobody. Edwards is in his second year out of Stanford, and I don’t know about you, but I know that Stanford is not known for producing great NFL quarterbacks. He’s doing much better than Jamarcus Russell, who was drafted way before Trent. I could’ve seen Jamarcus doing well this year, but Trent Edwards? I don’t know what he’s doing right, but he better keep doing it if the Bills want to see the postseason for the first time in over 10 years. Honestly, with the lack of depth the Bills have in their roster, they should be one of the worst teams in the NFL. They are not a great team, and I do not think they should have even two wins at this point in the season. Even the dreadful 0-4 Rams have a handful of star players.

After finishing both the ’06 and ’07 seasons at 7-9, I never could’ve imagined the Bills having a shot at a playoff berth. It’s definitely too early to call right now, but with the Dolphins and the Patriots (without Tom Brady) in their division, it’s looking good for the Bills. They're weak schedule definitely gives them a great chance to beat out Favre and the Jets for the AFC North division title. Just last year, the Jets and the Bills had losing seasons. There was no way that they could’ve seen themselves battling it out for their division title. With all the crazy occurrences that have happened already (like Brady’s season ending injury) Favre’s antics over the summer, and Cincinnati’s 0-4 start, it should make for an interesting 2008 season. If the Bills do make the postseason, it will definitely be one of the biggest surprises of the 2008 NFL season, next to Brady’s injury, which is just karma for those cheating bastards.

Each Fall an army of eighteen-year-old "adults" floods USF, expecting to finally set foot in the long prophesized "real world." They soon discover that college, and the real world, are whatever these freshmen make of them.  In constructing their identities, most are required to take a basic writing course. Creative Loafing has chosen four of those students to blog for the Daily Loaf.

The Buffalo Bills are somehow undefeated, which is, to me, the most surprising outcome of the 2008 NFL season so far. I can only name two players on their entire roster: Marshawn Lynch (starting RB), and their free agency acquisition from the Jaguars Marcus Stroud (starting DT).

Stroud is a great addition to their defensive line, but he alone shouldn’t be what turns the Bills into a playoff team. Other than these two star players, I cannot recognize anyone on the roster. Trent Edwards? I had no idea who he was until this season...
