AP Pro32 comments about Bills
NEW YORK -- Comments on the Buffalo Bills by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):
BUFFALO BILLS (20)
Chris Berman (ESPN, 22) -- Wagons torched.
Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 21) -- Mario Williams has been quiet, and Ryan Fitzpatrick has been too turnover prone.
Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 19) -- Comment currently unavailable
Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 17) -- As soon as Fitzpatrick figures out how to take better care of the ball is when the Bills will start to win consistently.
Bob Glauber (Newsday, 25) -- It was all going so well until C.J. Spiller's fumble near the goal line. It all came unglued from there against the Pats, who have now beaten Buffalo 17 of the last 18 games.
Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 22) -- An AFC North quarterback leads the NFL with 12 TD passes. But it's not Tom Brady -- it's Ryan Fitzpatrick.
Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 18) -- Just when the Bills are poised to become "relevant," as GM Buddy Nix would put it, Tom Brady rolls into town ... and reality sets in.
Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 21) -- Ryan Fitzpatrick needs to make sure his mouth guard is firmly in place before taking the field at Candlestick Park.
Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 20) -- The Bills were able to put 28 on the Pats defense, but their defense gave up 52 to the Pats. For the money the Bills spent on this defense they expect better.
John Lynch (Fox Sports, 22) -- It was looking so good vs. the Patriots and then it went so bad.
Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 20) -- Following a disastrous home loss to New England, the Bills have no time for self-pity with a road trip to San Francisco on the horizon.
Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 20) -- If Mario Williams doesn't start picking it up, there are going to be a lot of 2013 free agents who suffer because so far, Williams has been an argument against spending big money.
