Stevie Johnson: Bills will “bring it” against the Patriots

Stevie Johnson AP

With the Bills surprisingly 2-0 behind a high-powered offense, and the Patriots unsurprisingly 2-0 behind a high-powered offense, Buffalo receiver Stevie Johnson is telling the Patriots that when the two teams meet today, New England’s defense better be ready.

I’m expecting a shootout,” Johnson said. “I can’t really speak for our defense. I’m just saying we have to put up numbers. If it is going to be a shootout, we have to be ready for it on the offensive side. We gotta bring it.”

To which the Patriots might reply, “Oh, it’s already been broughten.”

The Bills are the highest-scoring team in the league through two games, with 79 points, and the Patriots are No. 3, having scored 73 points. So it seems likely that a whole lot of points will be put up on Sunday.

But it’s telling that even though the Bills are 2-0, the highest-scoring team in the league, and at home on Sunday, the Patriots are favored by a touchdown. The betting public isn’t confident that the Bills will bring it. It’s Johnson’s job to prove everyone wrong.

    He must be planning on taking out their best defensive player with a cheap shot to the knee.

    It would be nice to see the Bills climb out of the gutter, trash the Patriots at home, then lose to my Bengals on the rd next week….

    Bills 44
    Pats 36

    Why wouldn’t they bring it? Do they occasionally forget to bring it? I know it’s the Bills, but you shouldn’t have to say you’re going to bring it.

  5. billinva says: Sep 25, 2011 9:17 AM

    Pats 69
    Bills 23

    the betting public isnt thinking the bills will bring it?
    the line started at 9.5 and is down to a touchdown, that says the betting publi actually does think the bills will bring it. the more people bet on the bills the more the line makers try to make the ne bet more appealing

  7. BernardPollardIsAnAss says: Sep 25, 2011 9:20 AM

    Yeah, the Patriots are horrified this guy is going to “bring it” with a pulled groin and their slot receiver going on IR. What, is the TE going to catch 5 TDs? Don’t think so. Not worried in the slightest. Oh yeah… didn’t the Bills pass defense make Jason Campbell (yeah, that Jason Campbell) look like an All-Pro last weekend? Yup, I think they did. This will be a pummeling (make that 16 in a row) of the Bills.

  8. MichaelEdits says: Sep 25, 2011 9:21 AM

    Cam Newton will put up more yards than Brady or Fitzpatrick.

  9. deconjonesbitchslap says: Sep 25, 2011 9:21 AM

    give me ONE good reason why this quote was worth writing an entire article about?

    ‘we are going to try really hard’

    how bold and arrogant he is!

  10. tatum064 says: Sep 25, 2011 9:23 AM

    The Bill defense will have to “bring it”, or Tom Brady is going to “bring 50″ on the scoreboard. They cannot trade possessions and hope to out last New England. Too many weapons and they can fast break with the best of them. It will come down to who turns it over, and im betting its Fitzpatrick, not Brady.

    But, 15 straight wins….Buff is due about now.

  11. quannumkid says: Sep 25, 2011 9:26 AM

    KCWolf, get over it. It was a football play and unfortunately there was an injury. Those blocks happen in every game.

  12. stanmarkey says: Sep 25, 2011 9:27 AM

    @kcwolf did you miss the tape??? berry tore his knee up while steve was nowhere to be found look http://bit.ly/q693xz .
    which detriot player are you blaming jam char’s injury on?

  13. rabidbillsfan says: Sep 25, 2011 9:29 AM

    @kcwolf

    And the Lions are dirty for making JC tear his acl. Either way, with or without berry, the chiefs would still suck.

  14. kisstherings says: Sep 25, 2011 9:30 AM

    Pats: 38
    Bills: 17

    You read it here first

  15. ingloriousmaster says: Sep 25, 2011 9:30 AM

    I like Stevie, even as a Patriots fan…its just too bad his god hates him

  16. dionoil says: Sep 25, 2011 9:36 AM

    Never cared about the Bills or Patriots, but I’m really pulling for the bills this year. No team deserves to suck this long.

  17. fsubrowns9510 says: Sep 25, 2011 9:39 AM

    Why so serious stevie? Hope ya dont have the dropsies today.

  18. Rhode Island Patriots Fan says: Sep 25, 2011 9:43 AM

    They had better “bring it.” With an extraordinarily loud Ralph Wilson Stadium, and fifteen Patriots players on the injury report with two more on IR, today represents Buffalo’s best opportunity—given their surprisingly well-balanced offensive attack—to defeat New England in quite some time (eight years to be exact). That’s not making excuses. It’s stating facts.

  19. billyhoyle4real says: Sep 25, 2011 9:45 AM

    @kcwolf?!?! You must be pretty angry with the Lions mascot for taking out Charles too. Wah wah wah!!!! Even with Berry, we burnt down the Chiefs teepee…

  20. wwwmattcom says: Sep 25, 2011 9:45 AM

    Marcell Dareus needs to bring it for the Bills to win. I keep thinking week in & week out the Bills need to prove they are different, this is going to be a season of proving, a win or a loss doesn’t necessarily mean they are different. Their play this year thus far is different and come December we will see if they were able to bring it all year long. Only week three. I think according to the Media if the Bills lose: “oh it’s those Bills again”.

  21. rabidbillsfan says: Sep 25, 2011 9:46 AM

    If its a shoot out, the pats will win. However, if the Bills can get a ground game going, and get concistent pressure on Brady, then this game will be close.27-24 Bills on a rian lidell fg.

  22. ampats says: Sep 25, 2011 9:47 AM

    Little concerned about the injuries/players out and streak this week. I think this is Ochocinco’s breakout game .

    Should be a good game,still early in the season.

  23. skeefe1976 says: Sep 25, 2011 9:52 AM

    Hoodie is going to tell Stevie to shut the F up and look at the scoreboard…

    The good thing is there is no such thing as “due”.

    The only impact that history will have on this game will be if the players on either team let it get in their heads. Otherwise history has nothing to do with it.

  25. jetsarestacked says: Sep 25, 2011 9:56 AM

    hope the bills win, but i dont think they are that good of a team.

  26. kcwolf88 says: Sep 25, 2011 9:57 AM

    I’m not exactly sure what Jamaal Charles’ injury has to do with this. And yes the “block” on Berry was completely legal. Just because something is within the rules doesn’t mean it isn’t a cheap shot. How about you check out a previous play from Stevie. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yM05fSk-Wek

    Man he sure seeems upset for a play that happens all the time in football.

  27. cbow1968 says: Sep 25, 2011 10:06 AM

    I just hope he brings me about 30 fantasy points.

  28. wwwmattcom says: Sep 25, 2011 10:07 AM

    @ stanmarkey says: Sep 25, 2011 9:27 AM

    Thanks for the video. I never understood how Berry could have torn his ACL on the block from Stevie, but the video you posted is exactly and MCL and ACL and Meniscus tear! I never saw this video before, I guess that’s why Berry never got pissed at Stevie and everybody else did.

  29. S says: Sep 25, 2011 10:09 AM

    Bills expectations about to get a cold, hard reality check.

  30. drevilstolemymojito says: Sep 25, 2011 10:11 AM

    True, true kcwolf88. Stevie will be “bringin it” against the DBs’ knees!

  31. flbills says: Sep 25, 2011 10:17 AM

    @kcwolf..just another bitter chiefs supporter. You said it yourself “happens all the time”.

  32. tallguyme says: Sep 25, 2011 10:20 AM

    Ocho 110 yards, 2 TDs.
    Bills 4 turn overs.

    Pats win.

  33. arrogantathlete says: Sep 25, 2011 10:24 AM

    Haha what a fool to be motivated….how dare he say anything.

  34. 3yrsnfl says: Sep 25, 2011 10:31 AM

    The Bills might not be who they used to be. Maybe somebody else besides the Jets can beat the Patriots? The Dolphins still stink.

  35. jtk1985 says: Sep 25, 2011 10:31 AM

    @kcwolf

    Its not a cheap shot if its within the rules of the game. Sucks Berry got hurt, but it wasnt Johnsons fault. Guys get chop blocked and hit low every play of every game.

  36. greendreams6 says: Sep 25, 2011 10:36 AM

    By all means please go OFF Mr. Johnson. I need about 30-40 points :)

  37. faulkana says: Sep 25, 2011 10:36 AM

    Is “Stevie”, 2 years old?
    I’ve never been called, “Davie”, but if I had, I would have put an end to it as soon as I could speak.

  38. CKL says: Sep 25, 2011 10:37 AM

    Nick Barnett just said on NFLN that he “loves the smell of an upset in the AM”.
    Sometimes confidence it the thing that kicks a team over from being competitive (which the Bills usually are)to winners.
    They always bring it against the Pats even when they’re not really that good. I expect them to play very hard and for it to be a big challenge for the Pats to win.

  39. unbreakable02215 says: Sep 25, 2011 10:42 AM

    Biggest Pats rumpswab there is here. Sh#ttin my pants over this game
    Bills O will give depleted Pats D fits.

    You mean kinda like how the Patriots defense gave up over 400 yards to Chad freaking Henne? SERIOUSLY? CHAD HENNE?!?!?!?!?

    Ummmmm, they cannot compare. Moore received a penalty and a fine from his hit. His helmet clearly hit Jones’ helmet.

  43. jaggedmark says: Sep 25, 2011 10:48 AM

    There you go twisting things again.

    Johnson’s quote said “we gotta bring it”, which is quite different than your headline, “Stevie Johnson: Bills will “bring it” against the Patriots.

    I don’t think anyone would disagree with Johnson’s comment that the Bills “gotta bring it” if they are going to win. But I’m sure you have numerous negative comments with your MADE UP AND MISLEADING HEADLINE.

    Seriously, you guys are out of control with that.

  44. flavordave says: Sep 25, 2011 11:03 AM

    Whats very clear is the score and stats:
    Bills – 124
    Patriots – 114

    Brady 1124 yards 16 tds
    Fitz 1482 yards 17tds

    Bank it fellas

    =====================
    Absolutely right. It comes down to who makes the most plays and most mistakes. As I said earlier, they cant trade possessions and win this game – they will have to force a couple of turnovers stay close, and out last them – not easy.

  47. slickster35 says: Sep 25, 2011 11:43 AM

    A cheap shot artist and a big mouth.

    Karma will be working doubletime today.

  48. billsfan1 says: Sep 25, 2011 12:03 PM

    It will be the same old same old for my bills until they can prove me wrong

  49. jayhawk6 says: Sep 25, 2011 12:13 PM

    Amen, slickster, but since Rodney Harrison no longer suits up for New England, Stevie will have to look elsewhere for the truckload of karma he is due.

    The Patriots have the worst defense in the afc buffalo runs the ball and wins.
