. . . in advance about tonight's "Monday Night Football" matchup between the Patriots and Bills:
A couple of his "arguments":
Richard Seymour, the Pats' former Pro Bowl defensive end, was traded to Oakland last week. Aaron Schobel, the Bills' former Pro Bowl defensive end, returns to action today. I tell you, the gap between the teams is closing by the minute.
The Bills' last win at Foxborough was Nov. 5, 2000. Alex Van Pelt was the third-string quarterback, as I recall, gaining valuable insight for his future job as an offensive coordinator. He knows how to win there.
You be the judge as to how persuasive he is. Our conclusion: Not very.
But there is one notable Bill -- you can probably guess which one -- who says none of that matters now:
One Bill who is oblivious to the Pats' domination of Buffalo is [Terrell] Owens, who spent the past 13 seasons in the NFC.
Asked about the 11 straight losses, Owens said:
"I live in the present."
Asked if he has brought a swagger to the Buffalo locker room, Owens said:
"Well, if I haven't, I'll bring it [tonight]."
Maybe, but it's clear T.O. is not yet in midseason form in terms of his quotes. "I'll bring it tonight" is no match for "Getcha popcorn ready."
How bad are the Bills?
So bad that they make the Detroit Lions seem like a Super Bowl team in comparison.
