  1. Bass might end up being great. But the FACT right now is that our kicker is 60% on Field Goals and he hasn't kicked one outside 40 yards, yet. In NFL terms that means he's 60% on gimme kicks. He missed one. He "made" one he was credited for missing--we think. And another one was still pushing right. Yes, he socks right now. Once he splits the uprights a few times from 40+ yards, I'll feel better about him.
  2. Oooohhh I TOTALLY forgot about that spin move!!! Thanks for the reminder!
  3. Sorry if posted here but SI covered this yesterday and it made me giggle: https://www.si.com/.amp/nfl/2020/09/27/week-3-takeaways-josh-allen-wild-ride-foles-in-trubisky-out-falcons-blow-it-again Josh Allen Is the World's Wildest Roller Coaster: Allen’s afternoon included four passing touchdowns, one rushing touchdown, a reckless jump-ball prayer with a 25-point lead that was completed ... but was incorrectly ruled an interception (there was also an offensive pass interference flag). There was another lost fumble, the rare quarterback facemask penalty committed as he used one pass rusher as a human shield to block another pass rusher. And he had another late lateral to an unsuspecting teammate—that teammate was unsuspecting because no reasonable person would ever attempt such a lateral (the ball rolled safely out of bounds). Anyway, the Bills defeated the Rams in a football game, by three points.
  4. And it's all Allen because our RBs haven't scored a TD rushing and our rookie FG kicker socks right now.
  5. good stuff I don't think that OPI call is as clear as you think it was. But honestly I don't care because the game swinging Interception was ABSOLUTELY NOT an interception. It's just karma.
  6. Agreed. Allen has always been a road warrior. He actually seems to feel more pressure playing at home.
  7. https://theathletic.com/2097241/2020/09/27/hes-just-a-baller-josh-allen-delivers-again-in-bills-dramatic-win-over-rams?source=user-shared-article ‘He’s just a baller’: Josh Allen delivers again in Bills’ dramatic win over Rams Josh Allen and Cole Beasley have talked a lot about the play that led to the improbable third-and-22 conversion in the Bills’ helter-skelter 35-32 win over the Rams on Sunday. They never talked about it happening like this, in a game in which the Bills had already blown a 28-3 lead in the second half and needed to pull a touchdown out of their hindquarters to avoid going into the record books for the worst collapse in franchise history. Yet there they were, facing third-and-22. At that point, the Rams had an 83.9 percent chance of winning, according to ESPN’s win probability metrics. Those metrics didn’t account for Allen’s ability to turn the unlikely into the routine. As Allen dropped back, the Rams couldn’t get into the backfield to apply pressure, allowing Allen to scan the field and drift right. After the game, he described the play as backyard football at that point. But he knew all too well the route Beasley was running. Last year in the season opener against the Jets, Allen missed Beasley on that route. Allen thought one thing, Beasley thought another. A year together can make a lot of difference. Because this time, Allen put the ball on the screws with accuracy and timing. ... And Kroft: “I can’t say enough about 1-7. He’s competitive as hell. He’s going to make sure we’re in position to win. You see it out there. He’s trying to stiff-arm four dudes and still throw the ball. He’s a competitive guy and he’s going to put us in position to win every time.” After not having a single 300-yard passing game in his first two NFL seasons, Allen now has three straight 300-yard games to start the season. He’s thrown for 1,038 yards through three weeks. Only 16 times has a quarterback thrown for more yards in the first three weeks of a season than Allen has in 2020. He’s one of only 14 quarterbacks in history to throw for at least 10 touchdowns in the first three weeks of the season, and he has two rushing touchdowns on top of that. His start is eerily similar to Jim Kelly’s start for the Bills in 1991. Kelly in 1991: 87-for-119 passing for 1,019 yards, 10 touchdowns, four interceptions Allen in 2020: 81-for-114 passing for 1,038 yards, 10 touchdowns, one interception, three lost fumbles
  8. I just thought this was funny https://www.si.com/.amp/nfl/2020/09/27/week-3-takeaways-josh-allen-wild-ride-foles-in-trubisky-out-falcons-blow-it-again Josh Allen Is the World's Wildest Roller Coaster: Allen’s afternoon included four passing touchdowns, one rushing touchdown, a reckless jump-ball prayer with a 25-point lead that was completed ... but was incorrectly ruled an interception (there was also an offensive pass interference flag).

  9. Touche. Saw it updated as 124.8. Guess those Passer Rating calculators aren't all equally reliable.
  10. I thought we were gonna see it last year... made a thread about it. Perhaps I was just a little early... I was wrong and now can't make new predictions for a few more months...
