  1. One last thought...I don’t care what analytics say, at some point a manager has to trust his eyes, and throw the analytics out the window.  Cash made a horrible decision and screwed his team out of a possible game 7 and WS championships. 

    Why didn’t his analytics tell him that Anderson hasn’t been anywhere near effective in the last week or two, as he was in the regular season?

    1 of those misses is questionable and the XP could be blamed on a bad hold. Could he do better? Yes but he could do worse.  Unless he costs us a game or two you keep him. Yes it doesn't hurt to keep a short list on hand yet looking at the free agent land scape who's better? 

    I wasn’t suggesting changing kickers in-season. I was suggesting if his struggles continue, he may be replaced in the off-season. 

  3. The 3 misses from inside 40, along with the extra point miss are a problem...especially since they were over the course of only 7 games.  If he can clean up that part of his game, he will have a bright future. If the misses on "gimmies" continue over the last 9 games, they will probably at some point cost the Bills a game this season, and probably cost him his job in 2021.

    It's not getting defensive my friend. I'm just stating exactly what happened yesterday that led to our low point output, along with 3 other penalties that backed us up once in the red zone. :thumbsup:

    Fair enough.  Regardless of what happened during the games to arrive at a mediocre point total, after 3 games of sub 20 point totals, it is somewhat concerning.

    70% completion rate, 300 yds passing, 60 yds rushing, moving the team up and down the field all game yesterday? Yep, expect that Allen. Ghost illegal formation call, what should have been DPI against Beasley inside the 5, and Kroft running like he had 2 left feet in the open down the sidelines kept TD's off of the board. 

    No need to get defensive about Allen.  I was just speculating as to what might be the problem with scoring points on offense...not just yesterday, but the last 3 games.  Hence the questions in my OP.

    Sudden death was a thing until 2012 in the regular season.

    Fun fact, Overtime wasn't in the NFL rule book until 1974.

    https://www.sportingnews.com/us/nfl/news/new-nfl-overtime-rules-ot-format-change-proposal/gczb9hxqtd3l1q04cifck0p8h#:~:text=It wasn't until 1974,was amended for playoff games.

    I say...combine the current system and the college format! It'll be just like the NHL - a few minutes of regular play then a "shootout!"

    (tongue embedded firmly in cheek!)

    I don’t remember a time in the regular season where OT was “play until someone wins”?


    Looking through the old standings, there were ties in the 80's, 90's and 2000's.  When OT was first approved, I am pretty sure, it was 1 OT period, and then a tie when that period ended.  How could that be if they "played until someone wins"?

    That is what I was questioning.

    Sad part is Dak gambled and lost.  He had $175 mil. over 5 years and was greedy.  Now, he has a terrible injury, and hopefully gets back to health, but who knows if Jerrah wants that deal now.


    I like the guy and he is an unsung hero as he has tremendous stats.  He wasn’t the reason they didn’t make the playoffs.

    You don’t think he has a huge insurance policy in the case of a career ending injury?

  8. 16, 17 and 18 points scored in the last 3 games.  Have defenses caught on to the Bills schemes?  Lack of running game finally caught up with them? OL is just not that good?  This is closer to the Allen we should expect?


    Bottom line...with this defense, 17 points a game on offense isn’t going to cut it.

    Beane owes it to this fan base to aggressively pursue a front seven stud even if it means parting with a high draft choice. A tackle or a run stuffing linebacker. A db would be nice as well, but Jackson gives us hope as a depth guy. This team can be as good as our defense allows it to be. Beane should own up to whiffing on keeping the wrong Phillips and the effectiveness of Epenesa in his rookie year. Jefferson and Addison are ok, but we need 2 more quality run defenders for rotational purposes and depth. This can be a special year if our upper management goes all in.

    Owes it to the fanbase? 😂. The last thing a GM should do is be dictated to by the fans or media.

    Game 3 thoughts...


    - Last night was a reminder to Dave Roberts that if the game is close, DO NOT bring in Kenley Jansen.

    Skip...I tried to warn you.  

    PS Crazy ending.  Here’s hoping for a fantastic 3 game finish! 🤞
