In response to mthurl's comment:
I'm not sold on their quaterback (at least at an elite level) and their defense was bad last year - they already lost some key players to injury and let the lowly Jet's offense score on them. Having said that, Jackson will come back and Spiller is a talent. They did sign a couple of decent players on defense, so they might get better as the season goes along.
Someone mentioned that their coach is telling everyone the extent of the player's injuries and time table for their return...that's not good...why make it easier on opponents?
That was me Mhurl. If you look at the links in the original posting Chan Gailey is quoted as follows:
1.Head coach Chan Gailey pegged Jackson's time on the shelf between three and eight weeks. Jackson is confident his time on the sidelines will be closer to the short end of that prognosis. "Hopefully sooner, but I'll definitely be back in four weeks," said Jackson. "Without a doubt." That would peg Jackson's return to come in Week 5 when the Bills play the 49ers in San Francisco. Jackson confirmed that it???s only a sprained ligament after having an MRI.
2.The Buffalo Newsâ Tim Graham reported that the prognosis looked a lot worse for Nelson than Jackson: "Fred doesnât look as bad as David," Bills coach Chan Gailey said. "We donât know how bad David is, but it doesnât look good right now."
Jacksonâs injury is believed to be a sprain. There was no word on how bad Nelsonâs knee was. They will be re-evaluated Monday after MRIs pinpoint the extent of their injuries.
ã3. But Williams (Mario) apparently has been dealing with a minor wrist injury, according to what Coach Chan Gailey told the Buffalo News. The injury is minor enough that it isn't even listed on the injury report.
In talking about the injury, Williams said, "I had a little bit of a freak deal a couple of weeks ago. Unfortunately, it was right before the regular season. Like I said, by any means necessary. I've got to take care of it, put everything to the side, and try to get to the quarterback."
Imagine BB saying any of this ? Ummmmm I don't thinks so.
I know, could you imagine Belichick letting opposing coaches know this kind of information? Why is Gailey doing that?
