What does it mean if we have more points than the other guys?

The Buffalo Bills broke into the win column yesterday, defeating the Miami Dolphins 20-13 to run their record to 1-4, as opposed to the Dolphins' 0-6. I can't believe how bad the Dolphins are right now. Amazing. Just a few things:

:: Willis McGahee got his first start, and he looked amazing. He looked like the star player the Bills were hoping for when they picked him two years ago. I'd never really seen him in action before, and I was struck by how strong he is. On several plays he actually carried Dolphin defenders with him.

:: Since McGahee now looks really good, I'd suggest that if Travis Henry is going to be traded, it needs to be now. (Also because the trading deadline is tomorrow, if memory serves.)

:: Drew Bledsoe actually looked pretty good again. He completed more than fifty percent of his passes, he was only sacked once, and he threw no interceptions.

:: The defense, on the other hand, continues to look like a "bend but don't break" defense, which is a defensive philosophy that drives me crazy.

That's about it. I'm pretty tired today...but it was fun to watch the Bills win a game fore once.
