07:12 AM ET 09.03 | Week 1 is on the horizon, and Stevie Johnson may be on the bulletin board in New England. [Johnson] declared himself uncoverable in Sunday's game against the New England Patriots. "I don't think they got nobody that can stop me," Johnson said [Monday] afternoon at One Bills Drive. "For real." Johnson's never at a loss for confidence. He has been successful against NFL's best cornerbacks, particularly Darrelle Revis. Johnson and his fellow Bills receivers will face a talented group of cornerbacks in Aqib Talib, Alfonso Dennard and Kyle Arrington. "They're athletic," Johnson said. "I give a lot of credit to the New England Patriots. I haven't played against Aqib Talib yet. I've checked him out on tape, long, athletic, try to play with vision. They play as one unit."

Oh man..these guys just won't learn.

Well, we'll see if he can back it up, won't we?

Two days, 13 hours to go... I am ready for some football!

What did he do that for ?

There's no team that makes better use of bulletin board crappola, than the Pats.

He can probably back it up just fine... Of course, there's that little issue about having a QB that can actually get him the ball.




Thursday night can't get here soon enough.

Hey, Stevie, check the line.

And Hot Clicks. Still the nice red swimsuit top. --->

In his defense, Patriots was horrible in pass defense last season. I believe they were in the top five.

Pats were 9th in points against, which is what really counts for the D.

Buffalo was 6th worst in points against.

Pats were 12-4, Bills were 6-10.

I'd say the numbers favor New England.

+1 Particularly agreeing with the "Thursday night can't get here soon enough."

Well the Bills have sort of a QB, don't they?

Isn't that true every year? I mean the afc east is pretty much a cake walk for the Pats, which makes it even harder to believe that they are actually going to play gronkowski until he's 110% healthy

Sounds great but you still can't stop receivers from racking up yardage and that's what Steve Johnson was referring to.

He is correct about the Pat's secondary. He needs to watch out for one thing, The patented Patriot move - As he is getting by a Patriot defender, he needs to be aware that the Patriot will attempt to crotch kick him ( a move perfected by their team leader - Brady)......

September 3, 2013  08:52 AM ET

Actually, he spent much of the time calling out Patrick Chung, who left the team in the off season.

LMAO!

"I don't think they got nobody that can stop me," ... Please stick to football, Stevie Johnson. Educating our kids is clearly not something you should be doing. And you spell English with a capital "E" too.

September 3, 2013  09:05 AM ET

Good luck with that Stevie! You will need it.......

You have a poor QB that will be rushed like crazy and forced to unload the ball quickly. Just a general "life" rule here Stevie... You don't P.O. a guy that is ready to kick your butt anyway.....

Sort of... at least they were smart enough to can Leinart as quick as they did.

The "patented Patriot move"?

Whatever...

Well.......first you need a QB who can pass the ball......that might be the biggest issue.
