    He is just weak every game, we need to move on from him next year.

     

     

    This.  Forget about a position change, he is garbage.  The only way he is a starter on this team next year, is if Beane and McD don’t want the egg on their face from cutting a 1st round pick.

    You are right. But we have a lot to fix. The nickel corner and linebacker play is brutal at the moment and the dline little better. 

    You got that right.  Newton doesn’t fumble and the Bills probably end up losing. 
     

     

    I know a win is a win...but that was very disappointing. 


  3. 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?


  4. It is reported that after MLB officials saw Turner back on the field after the game, he was told to leave, and he refused.  
     

    Not a good note for MLB to end the season on.

    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. 


  6. 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.

    Umm...no.

    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?

    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.
