The Runway: Five Questions With Buffalo Rumblings, Part 2

My second question for Brian Galliford of Buffalo Rumblings deals with his team's successful first half of the season. A lot of unusual stuff took place for a team that is so successful.

When I'm looking at the Bills I see a team with a few wins where they came back from three scores down, a few wins where the other team threw four interceptions, a 26th ranked defense, and a quarterback putting up numbers out of line with the rest of his career, and I question whether this fast start is sustainable. As a Bills fan, tell me why I am sorely mistaken.

I'm not going to tell you you aren't mistaken, because you may very well be right. But it's not as if Tom Brady and Mike Vick gifted those eight picks to Buffalo, or that Fitzpatrick has been a mirage (he's been consistently very good under Gailey), or that a come-from-behind win somehow cheapens the effectiveness of that victory. The Bills are obviously a good football team. They are obviously not a dominant football team. As long as they keep playing well and stay healthy, I don't see why they can't sustain their success. They have been consistently good all year. Also: of their remaining opponents, only the Jets, Patriots, Titans and beatable Chargers have winning records.
