  1. Started his throw, paused it and then pulled the trigger.  Throw was late and somewhat under powered (compared to what Josh needed to have on it.)  This allowed Peterson to undercut the route.  A similar hitch was in the motion on the goal line throw to McKenzie that ended up skipping to him.  If he needs to make a power throw, that hitch is a power sapper.  If he's making a touch throw, that hitch/reload is not such a big deal.

     

    So, I say the decision was ok initially but the hitch in the motion (based on a LB flashing through the throwing window?) messed with the timing and made it a bad throw.

    When I joined the D&C Hyperbills forum (the origin of TBD) I wanted something that someone from my generation would identify.

     

    For more context for the younger members here:

     

    Rocketship_7

     

    I was more of a Commander Tom kid.  Mattie the Mod would be a good name for some.

  3. My first name is Jeff.  Growing up my mom often called me Jesse.  I had a favorite uncle who was a WWII vet that fought in Italy.  He handled mules that carried ammunition packs to the frontlines.  He died in 2009 with some shrapnel still in his body that surgeons decided not to remove.  He was farmed out as a boy, spent time in the CCC during the Depression and spent most of his working career as carpenter.  For some reason he took Jesse and started calling me Jessefeffer.  I figured he earned the right to call me anything he wanted and every time that I see it, I think of him.  Thanks OP for giving me a reason post about him!

    Every August they have a $10 ($13 with fees) fire sale on tickets for all games. Obviously you need to decide far in advance which game you're going to but you save a lot. 

    They should really be aggressive with that during the Bills bye week.  Good weather, discounted prices and big MAC contest, they could boost attendance to rarely seen levels.

    Admit it, you're gonna be jonesing to tailgate and root for a local football team this weekend. The solution is in Amherst NY Saturday at 1pm.

     

    UB hosts Toledo in a battle between first place teams in the east and west conferences of the MAC. Buffalo has won 4 in a row and have the inside track to the MAC championship. 

     

    Toledo is also undefeated in conference play and is likely heading to the MACC as well.

     

    Tickets are $32 inc fees. Parking is free. There's plenty of room to tailgate, or if you prefer, they have a party plaza set up with live music and food trucks. The forecast Saturday is sunny and mid-60s.

     

    And is all that wasn't enough, UB is wearing their 1990 throwbacks this game. #UBHornsUp

     

     

     

     

     

     

    I went to see them play Miami of Ohio a few weeks ago.  I was surprised at the $32 ticket price given my past experience and taking my entire family would have been a  no go.  The stadium was only half filled in the lower level on the visitor's side and the upper decks and end zone were much less filled.  On the other hand, the weather is supposed to be in the mid 60's and sunny which is near perfect.

    In recognition of the the good fortune we have that Josh Allen is the QB we get to watch for his entire career...............

     

    Ok.  I think it's officially over.  What's over?  Deez Nuts over your head!!!

  7. He actually attempted a hurdle vs the Titans last year and was met in air by a defender who made a great play

    It was the play just before the 4th and 1 play where Jeffrey Simmons beat Dawkins and stuffed Josh on the sneak.

    Although that may have been more of an airborne dive.

    Taps on Main Street is the place!

     

    filled to capacity with bills fans !

     

    including John fina 

    OK.  I saw a Twitter video of Josh's folks leading a Karaoke version of  "Sweet Caroline" at a pregame gathering.  More confirmation that Joel can sing!  Yes, moms and dads can be cool.  Anyways the camera panned the crowd and I saw John Fina blending in to the scene.  Thus, Taps on Main is/was the place yesterday and maybe today too depending on KC laws.  Looks like a good time had by all.

    Tonight Hopewell had their Homecoming game against the 6-0, #3 in the state, Thomas Dale Knights. It was a rough game for Mason. He had a couple of nice throws, but only completed about 50% of his passes. He had guys open, but the OL really struggled against the Thomas Dale defensive front. He was under constant pressure all night. Most of his damage this game was actually with his legs. He had about 80 yards rushing and a TD on the ground. Also had around 150 yards passing and a TD. Most of that came on a 35 yard catch and run in the 4th where the WR slipped a tackle, then was able to weave into the endzone. Hopewell lost 41-12. 

     

    The Thomas Dale QB is a kid named Ethan Minter. He's only a Junior, but that young man is something else. He had around 250 yards passing and 150 yards rushing, with 4 total TD's. He looks like he has the potential to be special. He looks to have 4.5-4.6 speed to go along with a rocket arm. He threw a 50 yard pass tonight that you couldn't have run up and handed to a WR better. They run an RPO offense as well. Every decision he made was the correct one. He knew when to let the RB take the ball. He knew when to pull it back and run himself. He knew when to hit the underneath routes. He knew when to take his shots. I only saw 3 incompletions in 20-25 passes. 

     

    Final note on the evening. Kesean Henderson is NOT TreVeyon Henderson, nor will he ever be. Kesean has speed, but not TreVeyon speed. Kesean has some agility, but not TreVeyon agility. Kesean doesn't have the same vision TreVeyon had at his age either. Kesean also doesn't have the same acceleration. He's still only a Junior and has the chance to improve, but right now he's looking like more of a lower end 3 star talent instead of a 4 or 5 star talent. That's just me being honest.

    Looked him up.  Lost his dad to COVID a year ago.  Has Offers from Marshall, Virginia and Maryland as of February.  Wants to study engineering and looks to aim higher with visits to ND, Penn State planned.

  10. Prior to the 2020 season I came across a video produced by QB Data Mine which was/is his site and it ripped Josh for being inaccurate with maybe 20 clips of throws missing the target.  Legitimately, 8 or 9 of them where throws tipped by a defender or where his arm was hit mid delivery.  A very sloppy production and logically flawed.  I started a thread here about it and other posters clued me in as to his background and reputation.  Thus, like Beck Water, I refused to click on the link also.  I figured Josh's 2020 and 2021 seasons were enough that he correctly decided to STFU but it appears I was wrong.

  11. It's a story within the context of how the game is played.  Over it's history, Highmark/New Era/The Ralph/Rich Stadium must be one of the toughest places to kick/throw/catch the ball in the entire NFL.  In the last game we saw 2 botched kick returns, a misplayed punt return, a blocked kick into the wind and two Chris Boswell missed FGs.

    He made the same call with the Josh RTP last week....

     

     

    The ads are  sold before the season starts.

    Josh mentioned being hit in the chin.  We (I?) never saw a camera angle from the other side of the play.  So, that may be a difference.

    They will have to treat these calls like the NCAA treats targeting.  They need the option to review them because they are often game changers.

  13. So much subjectivity to these things but throws that are made when one or more free pass rushers are bearing down on him deserve an extra bit of appreciation.  Some QBs will turtle before the hit is made, some back pedal (it hurts less) but fail to put enough on the throw (ex. Lamar 8 days ago) or maybe the bravest will stand there and take the hit to make a play.  Josh steps into the hit as he slides forward to deliver a good throw.  Not many do that.

  14. Tom Brady Gets Call--Say It Isn't So

     

    Noteworthy to me is how important it was in the outcome, Jerome Bogar made the call and the technique used is perfect.  In order to avoid the landing on the QB with full body weight, defenders are taught to "gator roll."  Wrap the QB and roll so as to land to the side of the QB and not on top of him.  This rolling maneuver does result in a spiraling to the ground effect as a natural result of the rotation.  I guess Bogar wants the defender to rotate just enough so that the QB, or maybe just Brady, will land on top of the defender and thereby have a softer landing.

    Watch the 3-4 plays leading up to the scuffle… AJ is pissed about being held or something. He talks to Hussey and gets mad. AJ blows him off and hand gestures to Hussey like “go away, you’re idiot multiple times”. Then the scuffle happens and Hussey I think targets AJ and shoved him with his back turned. 
     

    I think Hussey wanted AJ to react… Hussey got exactly what he wanted!

     

     

     

     

     

    Looked to me like AJ was hauled down by his facemask on an inside pass rush move.  The OL proceeded to fall on top him.  AJ was jawing with Hussey thereafter about the no call.  The back and forth was such that AJ probably did not like the man putting his hands on him as he was leaving the scrum.  You may be right about the ref getting after AJ with some intent to provoke a reaction.

    Our RBs do fumble too often though.

    If a punch at the ball lands from top down, there is a good chance it is coming out.  I did not notice this until the video posted above.  One of the Ravens' defenders puts his hands to his helmet and I assumed it was because the tackle was even made.  Maybe he saw how close it was to the ball coming out.

  17. I went to this one for the first time in many years.  Cole was drilling the out the breaking routes for completions on a windy day but not so much to the other areas of the field.  Radio announcer in postgame said the fumble was a bad ruling since it was an obvious forward pitch attempt and to me it seemed he was crushed during a deep ball atempt that made it come up short and get picked.  Receivers Marshall and Williams look like they will tear MAC secondaries apart.   Dolac was all over the place and stood out to me more than Patterson.   You do not get very many quality replays on the scoreboard so it's likely that viewers of the game on ESPN+ or U got much better views to form opinions.

    You are mistaken on both accounts. There is an amount of time you have to control the ball and there is a football move requirement.

     

    "To gain possession of a loose ball that has been caught, intercepted, or recovered, a player (a) must have complete control of the ball with his hands or arms and (b) have both feet or any other part of his body, other than his hands, completely on the ground inbounds, and, after (a) and (b) have been fulfilled, perform any act common to the game (e.g., tuck the ball away, extend it forward, take an additional step, turn upfield, or avoid or ward off an opponent). It is not necessary that he commit such an act, provided that he maintains control of the ball long enough to do so. This rule applies in the field of play, at the sideline, and in the end zone."

     

    Gabe was in the process of making a "football move" when the ball was knocked out. So he clearly did not maintain control of the ball long enough to do so.

    Ball was tucked, move completed.

    The NFL or players association needs to step in and do something about this. We could have had several players die or be so heat effected that it could effect those players for several games. This is a safety issue. When the dolphins play in buffalo they have the same heaters and cold weather gear and it’s on equal footing. In Miami one team gets to be in the shade the entire game while the other side bakes in the sun. I’ve never been to Hard Rock stadium. But it appears there is some sort of screen or something that keeps their side shady. This is a very unfair advantage that effects the players heath. It would be like the dolphins having to play in leather helmets Vs the Bill's with todays helmet technology. I’m not pissed that we lost. I’m mad about how the sun effected the Bills players more because one team gets the shade while the other team bakes. This needs to stop to protect player safety. 
     

    I just read the entire thread. I don’t care who won the game. The winner is not important. If you took your 80 year old grandma into that stadium what side of the stadium 🏟 would you sit her on for 4 hours. We have many 300 pound men expending lots of energy. This is not right. It has nothing to do with who wins or losses. If the Bills had won I would be saying the same thing. That side of the field was unsafe for player safety. Korey Stringer died of heat stroke for the Minn Vikings. 
    This was unsafe period and this effects players in different ways. We may have a few players that might not play in Baltimore because of the effects of this game. I was very worried someone might die in this game. Credit Miami for hanging in there. But look at their defense 90 plays and still doing well. Now look at the Bills offense. They look like they might die out there. If you don’t think that this is a problem then you are the problem. 

    The NFL makes many policies that are intended to keep a competitive balance between teams.   On OBL it was stated that the Bills could have only used those Cool Zone misting systems if Miami had chosen to use them first.  Sort of the situation where if one team loses communication to the field the other has to shut it down too.  But if the ambient temperature is 90 on one side and 115 on the other, how is that maintaining a competitive balance?  I would think the NFLPA would weigh in.

    I do not think they would overrule the call because they are inclined not to but Gabe had two feet down, brought the ball to his chest with both hands, took his right hand off the ball in a stiff arm sort of move, and kept the ball tucked to his chest with his left hand until the defender chopped it out.  The secured, tucked position is enough to complete the process of the catch as I highlighted in the section of the rule that you posted.  I heard some talk of the third step but it is just one example of the an "act common to the game."  The officials "wanting to see a third step" was mentioned in the Monday night game.
