  1. If McD made the right call to begin with there would not have been any confusion. By the way I saw a directional kick to the five was the right call.
  2. The fact (if true) that McD called a tb originally, he has no feel for the game in the big moment. Us rubes all knew the right call on the kick and the next two plays.
  3. I imagine the response will be "No Comment" or more likely "I did what I was told". But yes beating a dead horse.....
  4. Yep nothing new, but a very good assessment of the last 13 seconds nonetheless.....
  5. Ha ha ha..... It was a good article and I posted it. I get the Toronto Sunday Sun and it was there 2 weeks after the Superbowl, thus 5 weeks after the the massive screw-up, so they felt it newsworthy to do a 2 page spread and I only read it yesterday. I didn't need to go back pages to append it to another thread. If the Mods want to, go ahead. Yep not over it.
  6. https://www.pressreader.com/canada/national-post-latest-edition/20220226/282338273323081 Appeared February 26th, and just saw it. Still bothered by the meltdown and usually disappear from the site until September, but do peak in to see if anything of interest here. The first half talks a lot again about just what JA did in those two playoff games. The second half eviscerates the coaching & defense.
  7. What I read is McDemott got his way and it was kicked through the endzone. The wrong call.
  8. Do you not huddle before the kick? Did 10 players know the call & Bass did not? Wouldn't that have come out? Shaw I don't care about the other 59:47. It was a well played & coached game, but there were bad (or wrong) calls throughout the game, like there are every game. Get the last 13 seconds right (heck just one play) and the Bills win. The Coaching decisions & calls were screwed up three straight plays. Mahomes, Kelce and Hill did not make plays, the Bills coaches handed them 43 yards. Stop defending McD!!!!! He blew it.
  9. And again watching the replay of the last 13 seconds yesterday, there was Romo saying something along the line "oh no they kicked it long". So can hardly wait another year of McD excuses......๐Ÿ˜œ
  10. Again don't excuse McD. Coaching decisions, begin and end with him. I always love how his "fans" turn these things into positives. Yes according to some he is not a micro-manager (though from what I see from McD, I expect that is not the case), but with 13 seconds left in the game, you have to be.
  11. Of course at the most crucial juncture it is his responsibility (i.e. The Buck Stops Here). BTW again never answered, but don't special teams huddle before the kickoff. Again I just don't it that if the play was called, Bass the most important person didn't know.
  12. No it is at the spot of the catch. It is brought to the 25 yard line in College Football. While I do believe they were gassed, the defense was so bad, it had nothing to do with Patrick Mahomes driving them 43 yards. Buffalo gifted them those yards.
  13. A great 59:47, no need to warch more. There were mistakes on both sides, but a very cleanly played game.
  14. I just rewatched the 13 second nightmare. Simple routes, simple passes and no defense. Shaw66, please stop with the Belichek comparisons. McD is a good to very good coach, but to me the last two years has been more about talent then coaching. I know it may be unfair but show me a game in 2020 or 2021 where it was all about the coaching that won it.
  15. No I can't.... Expected that comment eventually. I too explained in a thread after the game that all year there were 4 Kick return TDs (out of almost 1300). These were all line drive kicks returned 98-100 yards (no 90 yard TD returns, which is what the directional kick would have required). Longest return Buffalo allowed all year was 31 yards. Again that wouldn't have been a coaching blunder, it would have been a breakdown on the return team. The odds and based on there being only 13 seconds & vs. Mahomes, forcing a return was the correct call. Then add a complete meltdown on the final two plays (i.e. no defence whatsoever) and simple, easy passes that even a below average NFL QB could have made all falls at the feet of McD.
  16. th So were the other 6 times in 2021 and let's not forget the Houston WC game. He's cashed in a # imo. And please no more references to "the process"๐Ÿ˜œ .
  17. I did a whole thread on that and then reviewed every kick in that game and Bass did the same thing, with the intent each and every time being a touchback (one was returned as Bass did miss it slightly).
  18. Exactly. The pop up was successful throughout the season and no way is it being fair caught at the 8 yard line. The Athletic article pretty much says they were doing the directional pop up. Every time it was done, Bass did a 3 yard approach (like a FG). As soon as he was 7 yards deep on his approach it was obvious it was going through the endzone.
  19. I think Shaw66 is great, just disagree with his blinders when it comes to McD. Look the Bills will never get those 13 seconds back. Every game one can second guess coaches calls and plays throughout the game, but one thing where there is no debate, is that coaches made bad call over bad call in those 13 seconds. Start with the kick. How the call to kick it short could have been missed (if it was) seems inconceivable. Shouldn't everyone huddle before the kickoff (like they do every play)? I watched the last two plays and the defense was just atrocious. Shaw says the DB was 30 yards down field on the Kelce pass (actually it was 40 yards!!!). They were protecting the sidelines and coverage was beyond soft. If I was a fan of KC vs. Bills and they lost, I've had been so upset about that 3rd & 1, from the 10, where they had the TE under center and resulted in a FG, instead of a TD. But that was just a call during the game, of which there are many. Forget complaining about the KC defense, which we all can do. Was it bad, or did the Bills make great plays and Allen put the team on his shoulders? Vs. Cincy they just botched everything from the end of the first half through OT. In the SB, McVay made the gutsiest & right call on 4th & 1 from their 34 yard line (we know McD would have kicked and trusted the defense). But then there were calls throughout the game, one can scratch their heads about. Same with Cincy. But this is all about a massive failure over the final 13 seconds, because KC was gifted 43 yards on those final 2 plays.
  20. And I was too as I explained to everyone at my house that a squib kick or a short kick was what was needed. I couldn't understand when the kick went to the end zone and was screaming at the call. And trust me I know Tony Romo or coach, but near the right call at the moment.๐Ÿ˜œ
  21. And I too had a thread on that. Cincinnati did it versus Kansas City at the end of the first half and it did exactly what it was supposed to do and was fielded at the 5 and returned inside the 25 and 5 Seconds came off the clock. Final 13 seconds were handled terribly by the coaching staff. End of story.
  22. Yes but they'd be at the 10 yard line, not the 25. However every analyst has claimed that you have to give yourself up and that takes 1-2 seconds off the clock on a squib. I doubt any returner is fair catching Bass' pooch kick at the 5-10 yard line.
  23. He turned his back and walked away. The fact that she's a racist I'm sure he knew all about it and then makes it justifiable.๐Ÿ˜œ
  24. Pathetic..... A "HUMAN" would have went over to see what happened (and in most cases, jumped down to make sure they were okay). Stafford turned his back and took a swig of water. Jalen Hurts earlier this season..... And his response after..... "Through the initial shock, my first reaction was to assist those involve," Hurts wrote. "However, while I displayed a calm composure, I understand the severity of what happened and am extremely concerned for the well-being of the fans and media."
