    Wow, it looks as though the situation on this team has become as fair as we could ask for. It would be amazing to actually see 8 white Bills start on defense [​IMG] Now, if only the Bills started a white WR and had a few white HB's on the team it would look like the 60's NFL.

    Does anybody remember the last true white tailback on the Bills roster? I know Mueller played tailback when Thurman went down in 88'. Also good news on the injury front as the injured tight end looks like he has a good chance at walking.

    John DiGiorgio took all the first team snaps at WLB during practice this week. If he starts that should give the Bills a majority white defense on Sunday in Pittsburgh-- DiGiorgio and Posluszny at LB, Leonhard at S, and Schobel, Kelsay and Williams on the line. Hallelujah, how many years has it been since a team started a majority white defense if this proves to be the case? Many!

    "If he starts that should give the Bills a majority white defense on Sunday in Pittsburgh"

    OMG, I really hope they televise this game in PA (which they probably will on CBS). I'm really looking forward to the usually very depressing player introductions!

    I really wish the bills would start more whites on offensive, they'd be my favorite team for life! Go Bills, destroy the caste-loving Steelers!

    When the Bills got to four superbowls they has a lot of white players on both sides of the ball. In 1992 they had four Wide Receivers (Lamb, Beebe, Walsh, and Tasker) Kurt Shulz and Mark Kelso at Safety, and so on.
    Perhaps they are re-trying a successful formula.Edited by: devans

    and so it happened! starters for Bills were DEs Schobel, Kelsey, DT Williams, LBs Posluszny and DiGiorgio and Jimmy Leonhard! and it can actually get better, if they think Wendling is ready for some action next week. [​IMG]

    I watched a fair amount of this rout, and the key difference in the outcome was Buffalo's crappy o-line. Losman rarely had acceptable protection. The Steelers blitzed relentlessly and the Bills had no answers. The Buff defense hung in there and played well overall. Leonhard had another big game, can't see the injured Ko Simpson (no relation to O.J.) getting his starting job back next season. Edited by: Don Wassall

    Bills started 9 total whites today! The defense was fine but it was always on the filed as that Bills so-line is terrible. Nothing that few more whites couldn't fix though [​IMG]

    and how can you not love them when they do things like this:

    Bills | Team adds Fox to practice squad
    Wed, 19 Sep 2007 13:36:22 -0700

    Chris Brown, of BuffaloBills.com, reports the Buffalo Bills signed free-agent CB Dustin Fox (Eagles) to their practice squad.

    now, if they actually sign Dustin to their active roster and let him play, voices will be raised against them, but imagine 8 whites starting on defense? including 2 or 3 defensive backs? i can see a lot of people being upset if that happens... [​IMG]

    and check out this thread for thoughts of Bufflao fans on the move.
    i'd say 75% of all the comments is positive, they also realize how white their defense is becoming. now if Poz, Schobel, Kelsay and Leonhard can all play their best, this actually might be a real tough defense! [​IMG] Edited by: backrow

    A lot of eyes will be on the Buffalo defense. The biggest problem as I see it, especially after having watching the Buff-Pgh game last Sunday, is that the Bills offense is so terrible that the Buffalo defense will forced to be on the field an awful lot most games. And even the best defenses wear down after a while.


    The Bills' o-line is bad, giving Losman -- who is still a young QB --little time to throw. And as often as we talk about the many bad receiving groups in the NFL, after Lee Evans the Bills may have the worst receivers of any team. Peerless Price has actually been starting for them and this guy was washed up years ago. Roscoe Parrish, Sam Aiken, Josh Reed (the short, slow Biletnikoff winner who was drafted in the second round 6 years ago and is still playing a lot even though he sucks), what a pathetic group. It's going to be very hard for the Bills defense to show well under these circumstances. Edited by: Don Wassall

    Majority black offensive lines seem to be bad on average. Once they get down to only 1 white starter they seem to not do a good job anymore, and the all black offensive line simply seems to be bad, period.

    This has to be about intelligence and teamwork, is it not? Those things go downhill in an all black situation.

    Look at some of the guys on the Bills line. Big slow black guys. It will be really frustrating in the coming years when more and more lines move to big, slow black guys, and people can't figure out why they don't do a good job.

    "But we got the biggest black guys. How are they not dominating?"

    People figure that being big (strong) and black (athletic) is the key on the O-Line. That's the biggest BS I've ever encountered.

    Agreed, and if next season they replace some of those godawful, black O-lineman, WE may just have ourselves a team to root for!

    Because in all honestly, what white person in their right mind would even give a hoot about a virtually all-black team like Arizona or Jacksonville??? Is it pride for "their" city, are you kidding me? All cities suck, and are full of the worst anti-white racism of all.

    Rumor: Terrence McGee is out for game vs. Pats. What this means for Fox? Something good I hope.

    I don't think he'll start if that's what you're thinking.

    Poz DOES NOT have Urlacher speed man, no way, no how. he is going to be an elite LB, sure but he is definitely not faster than number 54.
