AP Pro32 comments about Bills

Associated Press

NEW YORK -- Comments on the Buffalo Bills by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):



Chris Berman (ESPN, 27) -- Five of last seven at home.

Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 23) -- Stevie Johnson is right -- this team needs victories, not moral victories.

Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 25)

Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 28) -- One of the more disappointing teams in the league this season ... what a shame with that talent.

Bob Glauber (Newsday, 25) -- Feisty effort from Ryan Fitzpatrick, who nearly pulls off dramatic comeback in New England, but throws it to the wrong team at the end. Bills now 0-11 at Gillette.

Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 27) -- The Bills hired Dave Wannstedt to fix the defense and signed free-agent DE Mario Williams to fix the pass rush. But Buffalo has slid from 26th in the NFL in defense in 2011 to 31st this season.

Clark Judge (, 26) -- Suddenly, I'm beginning to think that Chan Gailey and Buddy Nix should log on to

Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 25) -- Don't mention Mario Williams' name anywhere near Orchard Park these days.

Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/, 28) -- The Bills put up a good fight against the Patriots, but they are still 0-11 in Foxboro. It is hard to get excited about a team that plays tough, but can't win. The pass rush looks like it will never materialize the way it was supposed to and Ryan Fitzpatrick is just a solid QB that probably needs to be replaced in the future.

John Lynch (Fox Sports, 24) -- The Bills are battling tough the last couple of weeks in defeats to the Texans and Pats. Tough competition.

Alex Marvez (, 29) -- A 37-31 loss at New England marked the fourth time the Bills have lost this season despite scoring at least 28 points.

Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 27) -- They have lost five of six, but optimist Chan Gailey said there is "still a chance." Skeptics would say there still is a chance for the Bills to end up with the first pick of the draft.
