    Why do some people take it so personally? It was a fact the Bills did not come back and were losing close games. Last 3+ years the Bills have been one of the top five teams in the NFL yet were not able to win close games. Really it is not an arguable point the statistics back it up.

     

    The last close game that came back on was versus the Rams when they gave up a huge lead. I refuse to include the Patriots game when we barely survived Cam Newton at home or back door covers (ie Miami 2020).....

    so you're eliminating close games they won just because?  and i'm not sure the bolded is true.  maybe you're right, but can you show us?

     

    2019: 4-6 (one game was a week 17 throwaway game in which our backups played the Jets)

    2020: 5-1

    2021:  0-6

     

    I don't know where that ranks league-wide, but I'd hardly call it a trend.  It's more likely that last season was a fluke.

  2. I scheduled a hair cut for 12:10pm ET.

     

    Got there on time.  Waited 10 minutes to be seated.  The stylist was very ... deliberate ... in the way she cut my hair.  It's a basic cut.  #2 on the sides/back; tapered; scissor cut to finger length on top.  Always a 10-15 minute job.

     

    This chick took almost a half hour of cutting and also had to stop a few times to answer the phone, speak with walk-in customers.

     

    I still had to make my customary/usually unnecessary trip to the grocery store and I didn't get done with the hair cut until 12:50,

     

    Missed the first 5 minutes of the game because of all this.

     

    This is why I never had a doubt that we'd win.

    Did anyone see him go up to Poyer on the bench after his first INT?  When he walked away, he was still limping noticeably.  

     

    Was he allowed to wear a coat?

    the cheating helped 

    The constant bending and breaking of the rules helped him too 

     

    the Refs turning a blind eye also helped them. 

     

    if you have to cheat to win. Are you really that good?

     

     

    I'm glad you brought up rules.  The fact that Belichick has always known the rules better than anyone else is, in my opinion. one of the things that makes him the best ever.  He never broke rules.  He learned them and exploited them.  That's not cheating.  Working the system?  Yes.  But cheating?  No.

     

    As far as the refs go, that is completely out of any head coach's control.

     

    I get that Bills fans hate Belichick because he's owned us for the majority of his career and that there are sour grapes because the Bills, during Belichick's tenure in New England, have hired some of the absolute worst coaches the league has ever seen.

     

    But sometimes, you just gotta give credit where it's due.

    Belicheat cheated and w/o Brady has a losing record 

     

     

     

     

    There has never been an elite head coach who didn't have an elite QB.

     

    The only one close might be Parcells.

     

    You take the starting QBs away from the "best ever," coaches and they're very likely JAGs.

     

    You don't win 6 super bowls if you're not a great coach.

    He clearly takes it seriously, Lamar had basically the same thing happen to him in that playoff game against us and they kept him out.

     

    Glad to see him speak out about what happened so frankly and honestly.  After seeing this, I feel confident in how I feel about the Tua situation.

     

    Even if proper protocol was followed and Tua was somehow cleared to return to the field last Sunday, as the head coach of the team, Mike McDaniel should have stepped in and told Tua he was done for the day.  McDaniel is the main failure here.  He put winning ahead of his quarterback's short and long term health.

    Another what if.  

     

    It is more likely we would have had a better field position, so maybe we get into field goal range.  But maybe we run different plays and have worse results?  The events coming cannot be predicted.   

     

    What if Josh hits McKenzie for a TD?   Maybe our defense gives up a TD? 

     

    Who knows?  It's over.  

     

     

    Totally agree.  Close losses always cause "What If Mania."  Very few games are decided by one play; this one included.

    This as well. I hate the platoon system they run at times. If Singletary is getting 5 ypc, and isn't asking out of the game for a breather, then wtf are we playing other guys for? This isn't the defensive side of the football. This is offense, where your most effective players should be on the field as much as possible. 

     

    I've been beating this drum for years.  The guy has been averaging close to 5 YPC since he got here.

     

    His top three workloads for each season (year, most carries in a game, second most, third most)

    • 2019: 20, 20, 21 (no more 20+ carry games for the season; also inactive for four games)
    • 2020: 18, 18, 14 (played 16 games)
    • 2021: 23, 22, 19 (played 17 games)

    This is insane to me.

  9. I was giving this some thought and realized that I have never had a part-time job.  But this is definitely my most unique summer job.  At 15, I got a job working in/on Lake George helping the owner operate his "Wonder Wheels," water activity.

     

    He had seven of these water wheels (similar picture below; same thing, just different colors) that we would inflate every morning right next to the lake, smack dab in the middle of the village.

     

    Then I would take one out onto the lake to try to get people's attention/rent one.  I think we rented them out for 20-30 minutes at a time.  I would have the customer sign a waiver, give some quick instructions and send them on their way.

     

    We had to patch them up when they had leaks, as well.

     

    I made $5/hour, under the table.  This was a one-summer gig.

    Same. And honestly I’m not even complaining that we had to Tua. It’s just fair play. We had to pull Josh some years ago vs the Pats at home in a close game we lost by 6. Fair is fair. 

     

    Fair is fair and right is right.

     

    I couldn't give a rat's ass about how Tua coming back affected the game.  This is a 24-year-old (young) man who has his entire career and life ahead of him.  It is ABUNDANDLY clear that he should not have been allowed to return to the game.

     

    Even if this independent neurologist cleared him, someone on the Dolphins staff should have immediately asked, "What?  Are you f*cking kidding me?  Did you not see that this kid was literally out on his feet just minutes ago??!"

     

    Someone has to advocate for the long-term safety of these players.  Especially the high-profile ones - AKA, the ones who line the pockets of the NFL/Owners.

     

    This situation has made clear that the current concussion "protocol" rules don't do that across the board.

    Appearing on FanDuel's "Up & Adams," the CBS analyst and former NFL MVP said that if Giants running back Saquon Barkley keeps producing like he is, the Buffalo Bills could come calling.

    If Saquon Barkley continues to do what he's doing ... by the trade deadline, ... that's a serious thing that I think the Buffalo Bills would look at... Saquon is probably as good now as he'll ever be in the NFL ... why would the Giants keep him? If the Bills would love to have a top-end running back and give the Giants a second or a third-round draft pick, you'd have to consider it if you're the Giants.

     

    Why would need to lose draft picks?  Wouldn't the Giants just trade Barkley for Moss straight up?
