  1. Thanks. Look at last season to see that while Josh Allen's completion percentage was an abysmal 52.8% and he was more of a gunslinger in taking chances with a 10 passing TDs, 12 Interceptions. Meanwhile, Allen was hitting a lot of deep passes. In fact, the Buffalo Bills led the league in deep passes. Allen's win/loss record was 5-6. This season the deep passes are almost nonexistent while Allen is hitting more shorter passes. QB record of 6-3 and has thrown for 1919 yards 10 TDs, 7 INTs with a better completion percentage and QBR. Its my take that while Allen is in a more controlled QB in a sort of game manager type role this season. But this scheme is not him and not allowing him to be his best self and I think its holding him back. What I'm saying here is this OC is calling plays like he has that experienced QB behind center instead of a young inexperienced QB who needs an offense / QB guru that will allow him to develop into an elite QB. Daboll "might" be a good enough OC if he had an elite franchise QB. However, no QB is going to do well being forced to carry the team without a run game support like we saw against the Redskins. Teams need a balanced attack and especially teams with young, inexperienced QBs. Allen's win/loss record is 6-3 with many games he needed to make a comeback drive to win the game. I don't see him as being one of the worst in the league because he is 22nd in passing yards.
  2. https://www.pro-football-reference.com/teams/cle/2019.htm Lg Rank Defense 21 17 26 20 12 7 7 22 26 15 24 27 15 28 23 27 18 Also, ESPN has them at 6th in passing yards allowed, https://www.espn.com/nfl/stats/team/_/view/defense/table/passing/sort/netPassingYards/dir/asc
  3. C'mon guys, look at whats happening here! This young QB is being developed by a guy who thought Nathan Peterman should start ahead of him!!! The entire Bills world wants to see Singletary get the ball more and what does this brainiac OC do? Has the young, inexperienced QB throw 41 times against a team that is #7 in passing yards allowed along with the #2 sacker in the league. Meanwhile, "Motor" went 8 rushes for 42 yards against a supposed "stacked" defense with a 5.3 yards per carry average. In the first half Allen had 19 passes, Singletary 3 rushes. WTF! Just pray that this team doesn't get behind in points over the next 7 games! Because this lame OC then forces the QB to carry the team by going pass happy and forgets the run game. He did it a lot last season too.
  4. I'm pretty certain its been hammered over and over into Allen that he simply can't turn the ball over with interceptions. Allen is a "Brett Favre" style gunslinger that this regime has forced into a game manager type. What happened in the last two games? Washington 20 attempts passing vs 39 rushes. Allen 14 of 20 for 160 yards, 1 passing TD, 1 rushing TD. QBR of 110.4 Cleveland 41 pass attempts vs 20 rushes. Allen 21 of 41 for 266 yards, 2 rushing TDs. QBR of 73.8 Both opposing teams were "bad" due to their record of wins. However, lets look at the strength of both defenses. The Redskins defense was bad everywhere save their defensive line was stout with two first rounders and although they aren't that good stat wise at stopping the run, that line can be formidable! Case in point, Frank Gore a 1.4 YPC against them. Meanwhile "motor" ripped them for 20 carries, 95 yards, a 4.8 YPC average. The Browns strength was in their #2 in the NFL in sacks DE Miles Garrett and their #7th in the NFL in average passing yards allowed by a defense. This same defense was 28th in yards per carry allowed rushing, 27th in rushing yards allowed. Singletary only given 8 carries for 42 yards, a 5.2 YPC avg. Frank Gore 5 carries for 12 yards, a 2.4 YPC avg. Believe it or not the 1988 12-4 Buffalo Bills had 454 pass attempts, 528 rush attempts with Jim Kelly who had a 59.5 completion percentage. The Bills ran the ball more in those years and yet were more successful passing because it was a run first offense. 1989, 478 passing, 532 rushing. 1990 13-3 Bills 425 passing, 479 rushing. This run first offense helped develop QB Jim Kelly into a top passer in my point.
  5. Should the Bills OC continue to go pass happy when the Bills are down by any amount of points as he did most of last season and against the Browns this past Sunday. I have my doubts that the 2019 Bills will win another game. Anything less then the playoffs at this point (6-3) this OC needs to go! Should the Bills lose the next two I hope they fire Daboll and promote Ken Dorsey before Dallas. Against Washington, 39 rushes 20 passes, WIN! Against Cleveland, 20 rushes, 41 passes, LOSS! Browns HC Freddie Kitchens realized that if the Browns got the lead it would cause Daboll to go pass happy into the teeth of his defense...and Daboll did exactly that. I think the overall consensus from Bills fans is that the Bills should run more and pass less!
  6. What my earlier post pointed out was that Singletary was getting 7.0 yards per carry on his three rushes in the first half! So if the Browns were stacking the box it wasn't effective against "Motor"! 19 passes vs 7 rushes in that first half. This against the #2 sack leader in the NFL with the Browns being #7 defense in passing yards allowed. Brian Daboll ran his offense "his way" without any consideration to what he was facing. So who is the failure in this game? The 2nd year QB with 19 games under his belt or the 6 year OC who is acting like a rookie who doesn't know how to set up an offense against a specific opponent. Its really kinda sad that first year HC who is one year removed from the Browns RB coach out foxed Brian Deboll. The 2-6 Browns beat the 6-2 Buffalo Bills because a moron is running the Bills offense. Its like Nathaniel Hackett never left!
  7. This is exactly right and instead of looking at the entire game lets look at the first half. Going back to the play by play in the Bills first series Singletary had one carry off RG for 4 yards. The Bills second series it was DeMarco off RG for 2 yards, Gore off RG for 4 yards. Third series, Singletary off RG for 9 yards, next play Gore off RG for 3 yards first down. Allen run first down, Allen pass. Singletary off left tackle for 8 yards, Gore RT for 2 yards. This series resulted in a rush TD by Allen. Fourth series it was all Allen with 10 passes and one run, no RB runs at all. FG no good near end of first half. I think Daboll is full of crap. 19 passes vs 7 rushes in the first half. Singletary 3 rushes for 21 yards. 7.0 YPC doesn't look like a stacked box was effective against Singletary. The OC simply went pass happy while neglecting the run. No excuse for this! When you look at the actual runs by the running backs it was Singletary 8 carries, Gore 5 carries, DeMarco 1 carry. 14 called rushes by the Bills RBs vs 41 passes! To me, it just makes no sense at all to make that young, inexperienced QB carry the offense all game by throwing it 40+ times. Its what losing teams with top QBs do all the time. After watching Singletary against the Redskins he looks to be a special RB that can be the star player on offense, so why not make him the focal point instead?
  8. You don't NEED Dalvin Cook to run in that Vikings offense. Although, It wouldn't hurt to have him. Its just that Vikes OC Gary Kubiak has had great success wherever he was an OC with his zone blocking scheme.
  9. I get that running a scheme on game day is like playing a Grand masters chess match. So when an OC sees the opponent stacking the box like they do to stop the run. Then why not spread the formation out with 3 to 5 wideouts instead of running a tight formation or even an elephant/goal line offense? This causes so many mismatches as suddenly the defense must go nickle or dime depending. And when they do that one missed tackle means its off to the races. Chan Gailey made a living out of running out of a spread 4-5 wide shotgun formation with Spiller. Or, if the OC is obstinate about a tight formation, when running it have three offensive tackles on the line to force power some holes? Its what Cam Cameron used to do with the Ravens run game and opponents had no answer for it usually. Both sides knew they were going to run it and they couldn't stop it... also makes for some great play action. To me, it just makes no sense at all to make that young, inexperienced QB carry the offense all game by throwing it 40+ times. Its what losing teams with top QBs do all the time. After watching Singletary against the Redskins he looks to be a special RB that can be the star player on offense, so why not make him the focal point instead? Going back to the play by play in the Bills first series Singletary had one carry off RG for 4 yards. The Bills second series it was DeMarco off RG for 2 yards, Gore off RG for 4 yards. Third series, Singletary off RG for 9 yards, next play Gore off RG for 3 yards first down. Allen run first down, Allen pass. Singletary off left tackle for 8 yards, Gore RT for 2 yards. This series resulted in a rush TD by Allen. Fourth series it was all Allen with 10 passes and one run, no RB runs at all. FG no good near end of first half. I think Daboll is full of crap. 19 passes vs 7 rushes in the first half. Singletary 3 rushes for 21 yards.
  10. Thanks. What really frustrates me about the current offense is that it looks like this OC doesn't look at whats going on with the opposing defense he is facing. It's almost like he is the opposite of his mentor in Bill Bilichick, who endlessly studies opponents tendencies and film. The stats show that the Browns have the #7 defense in passing yards along with #2 player in the NFL in sacks with 10.0 in Miles Garrett. So, why on gods green earth would you have your young, inexperienced QB throw the ball 41 times against that defense. Its like he wants the QB thrown into the hottest fire he can find. Meanwhile, this same Browns defense was 27th against the run while being 28th in being yards per carry averaged against them. I just don't get it. You would think that any other OC would find a way to run every run play imaginable against the Browns while using the the full cast of RBs! It doesn't need to be Gore up the middle all game either. In any event, if Hauschka makes the 37 yarder, and the 53, its a 22-19 win.
  11. It makes me think that this scheme would be best with a game manager at QB. But then, what happens with that QB when the team gets behind and the OC goes pass happy again? Last weeks offense against Washington when the Bills got the lead is to run more and pass less to the tune of 39 rushing attempts for 122 yards vs 14 of 20 passes for 146 yards. "Perfection" as the offense worked Singletary 20 rushes for 95 yards, a 4.8 YPC avg. 3 passes for 45 yards. This week against the Browns the Bills don't get the lead and the OC goes pass happy while forgetting the run game. Singletary only 8 rushes for 42 yards, a 5.3 YPC avg which was almost criminal with a better YPC avg. Allen is doing exactly what this HC wants him to do in limiting turnovers while throttling back Allen's gunslinger style. Daboll calls plays like he has an elite QB behind center and not a 2nd year, young, inexperienced still developing QB. Plus he throws out a game plan that works when the team gets behind in points in any amount. He did this most of last season when the team got behind on the scoreboard too. When you look at Brian Daboll's history in the NFL you realize there is a real reason why he has never fielded a passing offense better then 23rd in passing yards 6 yrs as an NFL OC with 4 different teams. I think McD hired Daboll thinking he was getting another Bill O'Brian (who can make almost any QB look good) and instead hired a Nathaniel Hackett who needs an experienced, veteran QB to run his plays. Think Orton. If this team with a "going pass happy offense" when the Bills don't get a lead...this team might not win another game. Dolphins, Denver, Dallas, Baltimore, Pittsburgh, New England, NY Jets. After last weeks game i thought McD had a talk with Daboll and now realize he didn't. This OC needs to go!
  12. Starting to think that last week was an anomaly with so few penalties and this week was almost back to normal suckatude with 7 for 40 yards. They had been averaging 8.5 penalties a game until last week. This team is just not good enough to overcome these stupid mental mistakes
  13. The good Buffalo Bills OC was with us last week with more runs vs passes... and this week just like last year as soon as the Bills lose the lead this jackass of an OC calls 41 passes vs 8 runs for Singletary!! This, against the #2 sacker in the NFL and meanwhile the Browns were one of the worst run defenses in the NFL...
  14. 8 rushes for 42 yards @ 5.3 yards a carry Vs 41 pass attempts is plain outright stupid!
  15. I figured this would happen as soon as the Browns got the lead and if it were the other way around we might have seen the Singletary of last week. 20 carries for 95 yards, 3 receptions for 45 yards. Daboll did this all last season when the opponent got the lead...he goes pass happy with a young, inexperienced QB... against a defense this week with the #2 in the NFL sack leader!
