    I said to my friend, “McDermott teaches his team to win the second half.  They prepare to win games like this.”

     

    Here's an incredible statistic - through 4 games, all against very good offenses, the Bills have allowed a TOTAL of 7 points in the 2nd half. I didn't think that kind of defensive dominance was even possible in this era of football.

    rbs need touches  He gets in for a play and immediately back to the bench  Maybe give him a full series and see how he does

     

    The coaches dole out snaps based on how the player looks in practice. Cook isn't getting snaps presumably because he isn't proving himself worthy of them. If he produced in his limited snaps maybe they give him a bigger role. But you can't drop the one opportunity you have in a big moment. I was excited about the pick because I thought he would be the pass catching back we have so desperately needed. Problem is he is having trouble catching passes... It's weird because that's all he did at Georgia, I'm not sure why it isn't translating to the NFL.

    Provided they actually end up getting him on the ground even if they don’t punch the ball out…

     

    Sometimes the defender goes for the ball and ends up missing  the tackle 

     

    The way this game is going you have to try for the turnover. Again I think this all falls on the Bucs coaching. They are more talented than this.

    SMH…They trade away a top 5 WR in the game, and have not skipped a beat. 😞

     

    Their offense didn't look the same against the Colts or Chargers. I think Bowles is just an awful coach and doesn't have his defense prepared. It's one thing to give up some points, but they are not even slowing them down. The only stop so far because their RB dropped a ball with no one within 5 yards of him.

  5. The Chiefs have basically scored TDs on 4 consecutive drives, one was just briefly interrupted by a dropped pass. Mahomes isn't getting a hand laid on him, the RBs are racking up over 6 YPC, the Bucs have forgotten that Travis Kelce is on the field. I expect the Bills to put up a much better fight than this. Pathetic from all levels of the Bucs defense.

    They’re currently converting at more than 2X the league average in 3rd and 7+. That’s not sustainable at all. 

     

    We've been outstanding on 3rd down conversions since 2020. It is absolutely sustainable because we have a freak show QB. That being said your point about early downs is correct. Singletary is just okay, Moss is terrible, Cook has made too many mistakes to trust him. So I don't know if a solution is coming this season.

  7. In 3 out of 4 games the Bills defense has allowed ZERO points in the 2nd half. And we're doing it against really good NFL offenses. McDermott has his issues with some decision making in critical moments, but he is arguably the best coach in the league at making halftime adjustments. For anyone questioning that last statement, I'll say it again - ZERO 2nd half points by our opponent in 3 out of 4 games this year.

    Today was I think a fairly mediocre game by Allen

     

    I don't think he was mediocre. He had a really shaky first drive and other than that played lights out in a tough weather environment. Every drive that stalled was because of a dropped pass, a stupid play call, or poor protection. Not only did Allen play steady in a game where a single bad pass could have turned the momentum, he also made a couple superstar/MVP plays to keep drives going and put points on the board. We all know Allen can have his way with defenses when his supporting cast is clicking. Today he proved he can rise above the mistakes of his teammates and still find a way to gut out a win.

    At home on 4th down Harbough should have kicked the FG.

     

    Meh. Turns out we probably could have scored the TD anyways. I respect Harbaugh's decision there.

    #3 was the BS roughing the passer call was huge!

     

    That was not a BS call. The pass rusher stopped in front of Allen then launched himself after the ball was well out of his hands. If a Bill had made that tackle I would have been livid at him for the undisciplined play.
