As 2012 comes to an end, I look at the Buffalo Bills season as one that was lost. Their schedule was more challenging than expected, but the team still had the potential to win 9-10 games. Unfortunately poor coaching and quarterback play, as well as an inconsistent defense cost the Bills any chance they had of returning to the postseason.
I’ve enjoyed this article and I’m sure we’ll have a few more True and False articles leading up to the draft, but here is the last true or false of the 2012 season!
1. This will be Ryan Fitzpatrick’s last game as the Bills starting QB.
Michael Bundt: True. Hopefully I end up right on this for the sake of Bills fans.
Brandon Hess: True. After this season’s performance there’s simply no way they can bring Fitz back.
Johnathan Snyder: False. It should be but Buffalo doesn’t do things it should.
Ryan Talbot: True. Fitz will not be on the Bills roster in 2013.
2. Buffalo will end up with a Top 5 pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.
Bundt: False. I don’t think a win or loss will propel the Bills in the top 5.
Hess: False. Much to the dismay of Bills fans I see them finding a way to take down the Mark Sanchez led Jets this weekend.
Snyder: False. Just too many teams to pass even with a loss.
Talbot: False. We’re currently sitting at 6, but I don’t see us falling into the top five.
3. Mario Williams will avenge his early season performance against Austin Howard with 2 sacks.
Bundt: False. I will be happy if Mario finishes with one sack on Sunday.
Hess: True. After the sieve like performance of the Jets offensive line last week Mario should finish his season with a nice stat padding performance.
Snyder: True. He’s a different player than he was 16 weeks ago.
Talbot: I’ll go with true. Mario finishes the season strong.
4. Stevie Johnson will finish the season with 1,000 yards receiving or more.
Bundt: True. If you’re Fitzpatrick, you have to know that Stevie wants the ball and will be calling for it against New York.
Hess: True. Half a dozen catches and 65 yards isn’t expecting too much from your number one wideout, I think Stevie will get it done.
Snyder: True. He’s the go to guy right now, especially with Chandler down and out.
Talbot: I’ll go with true here. I think Fitzpatrick will target Johnson a lot this game.
5. C.J. Spiller will eclipse 100 yards against the Jets.
Bundt: True. Spiller is a true talent and seems to get yardage even when the Bills offense struggles.
Hess: True. I don’t think he’ll run wild on the Jets, but CJ only needs one play to break off a big chunk en route to another 100 yard game.
Snyder: True. Big game. Big season.
Talbot: The field won’t be in the best shape, but I see him going over 100 yards.

NO ONE'S SAFE
The Bills are 5-10 and set to miss the playoffs for a 13th straight season. As a result, significant changes could be in order for the entire team.
Whether or not Chan Gailey would be fired has been a touch-and-go subject as of late. General manager Buddy Nix has been telling anybody that would listen that all the team needs is a new quarterback. Obviously the issues run deeper than that as Gailey is gone.
