Look up the word "perennial" in the dictionary. It means "something that is continuing or recurrent." Even if Willis puts up top 4 numbers this year (which he won't), he would need to do that a few years in a row before we call him a "perennial top back"

SA and LT (and maybe Edge, but that might change this year) are the only active RBs that qualify as "perennial top 4 backs"

Everybody is still waiting for him to break out, but so far all he has done is underperform. He's a nice upside candidate, but he's basically a more expensive version of Kevin Jones - a talented player on a bad team who we are still waiting to live up to expectations.

I'm a Bills fan and drafted willis, but i'm not too high on the bills this year. I see them as an 8-8 team at best. It's true willis has more things going for him this year, new coach, new attitude, and more experience, but the oline sucks. I hated the fact they gave up on mike williams. The defense is better and they got guys returning from injuries. Plus I think people need to give JP a break, he's only started one year.

Bottom line, I see willis improving, but not by much. Maybe about 1,275 with 250 yards rec . and 8 total tds

I already corrected myself.
Go Bills!

I'm giving Losman until week 5 to either be benched or laid out by Urlacher.
