1) Haus - he's catching the most ***** for this loss. Obviously it’s not all on him but, as per usual with kickers, you can win and lose based on their foot. I like Haus but he seems to lose confidence when he blows it early. Seems like McD also has limited confidence in his kicker, too. Not sure about the rest of you but I was certain he was missing that final kick. Ah well - shake it off Hausmoney.....
2) Allen - what a mixed bag game for him. I didn’t see the fire in his eyes today. He made some excellent throws, and a few head scratchers. Long ball still not there. Clock management at the end of the game was really bad. Feliciano was gesturing like ‘let’s gooooooo’. I know that’s also on his coaches. Maybe they were telling him to slow it down. Josh did run the ball well....scoring 2 on the ground...but Christ that fumbling is just out of control. I give him a C- for today’s effort.
3) Run D - still suspect. Gave up a lot of big chunks. Eventually an opposing coach will get smart and just keep doing it. Chubb probably could have run for 250 if they just kept feeding him. But then again our goal line D was just incredible today. Sweet Safety. Hard to blame the D for the loss but they certainly were culpable.

Immediately after the game, I stripped off all the Bills gear and showered and shaved and vented.
That was a dirty game and I felt dirty.
Was nice to do that for a change as I haven’t been at my house for the last 3 games...
What the ***** is wrong with me?
A 40ish year old grown man screaming at the TV and jumping up and down.
Anyway - we are 6-3.
Say it with me - WE ARE 6 and 3!
This is a good team.
Certainly not a great team.
But as always - I remain hopeful and positive. I’m not going to B word and moan about how the season is over, fire everyone, we need a new Qb/OC...so just bail on this thread if that’s what you are looking for.
Then again - I’m such a goddamn Homer that I never seem to lose faith in this team.
The best is still yet to come.
