Buffalo Bills Confident on Offense Despite Poor Preseason

The Buffalo Bills had a very disappointing preseason on offense, leaving fans anxious about what's to come in the regular season, but the confidence in the locker room is high.

EJ Manuel has looked less than impressive in a season that has plenty of high hopes, leading the Bills to sign veteran quarterback Kyle Orton out of retirement. Fred Jackson, however, says he isn't worried at all.

“Everybody in this offense we’re confident in what their abilities are,” Jackson told “We didn’t game plan anybody (in the preseason). We went in there with very vanilla playbooks, nothing game-planned, we didn’t break down defenses, certain situations and things like that. It’s game week, we’re going to do that now. We’re going to try to attack tendencies and things like that. Knowing the guys we have and what plays they are capable of making, we feel like we can score against anybody in this league.”

Jackson's statement is bold, but expected coming from a leader from the offense. Buffalo may have the most talent on offense that they've had since their last playoff appearance in 1999. Unfortunately, the weakest position appears to be the most important one, as Manuel has only looked sharp against reserve players. Still, Manuel says his focus is on the Chicago Bears, and not how he performed in the preseason.

“I have to go out there and do what I need to do and continue to prepare this week,” Manuel told “That’s why I say I want to keep my focus on Chicago because that’s the most important thing. I can’t control what’s happened in the past. You have to move and look forward. Chicago is our first opportunity, my first opportunity, for this regular season and I want to come out there and start it off how we want to.”

The confidence in the locker room may be high, but until that confidence translates into production and wins, Bills fans will continue to be nervous.

    Help our Buffalo Bills get back to the Super Bowl…
    sign the petition below…

    On behalf of all displeased Buffalo Bills fans..
    I have started a REAL petition. The link is below. Please sign it and spread the word… if not for you then for your good neighbors.

    Here is the USA persona of the Buffalo Bills… its time we changed it.
    This organization has been in a desperate state of death throes for a VERY long time now…81 wins and 143 losses over the past 14 seasons with NO playoff appearance.
    The only way we can get our Bills team back on track to the playoffs and away from the 4-12 season we are on pace for this season is to make the voice of the Bills fan heard where it will be heard the loudest… in the pockets of the greedy NFL. If YOU keep paying to watch a Bills team that hasn’t made the playoffs in 14 years… then thats all YOU will ever see… while the NFL laughs all the way to the bank… with YOUR money.

    “You take the blue pill, the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe (like EJ or Kyle Orton will take us to the playoffs). You take the red pill, you stay in wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole (playoff drought) goes”

    A Bills Fan Since 1978.

    …We, the Buffalo Bills fans, are officially protesting decades of watching inferior teams which have given our good city of Buffalo and the surrounding suburbs a bad reputation throughout the USA. We hereby refuse to pay the NFL to see any games until the Buffalo Bills organization produces a championship caliber football team.
    A Bills Fan.
