Aloha, Battle Red Bloggers. My name is Brian Galliford, and I'm the lead blogger over at SB Nation's Buffalo Bills affiliate, Buffalo Rumblings. Yeah, I know, it's a stupid blog name, but at least we can call ourselves "Rumblers" and, if our bosses become curious about the moniker, we can pass it off as a bowel movement or us just being earthquake enthusiasts. Gross and/or bizarre, but innocent, and certainly not grounds for firing.
I'm fairly certain you guys are aware that your Texans are playing our Bills this week. Tim will be running a reciprocating FanPost over at Rumblings at some point, so if you care to talk the Texans angle in this matchup, feel free to drop your knowledge over at our blog right alongside him. This spot is reserved for your questions for me (and any of my readers that feel courageous enough to hop on over here) to answer.
We'll get some basics out of the way right away, though feel free to ask questions in any way you see fit:
~ Ryan Fitzpatrick is starting at QB. No, he's not scary, but yes, he's won each of his last five NFL starts.
~ Yes, Terrell Owens has stunk this season. He was late to admit it, but he did admit it.
~ Our offensive line is every synonym of "not good" you can think of. Mario Williams should get right this week.
~ Matt Schaub had better be perfect on Sunday, because rookie FS Jairus Byrd has 5 INT over our last 3 games.
~ Yes. Byrd is the word. And yes, they play that at Ralph Wilson Stadium when Jairus gets a pick. Awesome.
~ We're 3-4, but we're more Oakland than... well, Houston. Y'all have a clear advantage in this one. Besides home field.
~ I'll be at the game, right behind the visitor sidelines. If you want covert pics of Andre Johnson re-inflating his lung on the sidelines between drives by going all intercostal with an antenna he snapped off of a minivan while walking from the bus to the locker room, I can probably hook you up.
If you have other meaningful questions, fire away. Best of luck this weekend - but damn you for not beating the Jets. Even we did that.
UPDATE: Here's my FanPost over at Buffalo Rumblings. Be sure to head on over there to contribute your thoughts as well.
