    Predict the score: Bills at Colts

    Week 7: @ Indianapolis Colts The Bills will be in white-on-white this week as they travel to Indianapolis to take on Bills legend Frank Reich and the Colts. Buffalo radio has been buzzing with optimism all week regarding QB Derek Anderson, who will get the start for the Bills. I find this remarkably foolish. Here are some facts on Derek Anderson: 1. He hasn't been a regular starter in EIGHT YEARS. 2. He hasn't started a game, period, in 2 years. 3. For his career, he posts a passer rating of 71.1. 71.1! 4. He was signed TEN DAYS AGO. He had no offseason program, no training camp, no preseason, and no season to this point. And last year? He only threw eight balls. It seems like fans and local media expect this guy to come in off the street and throw for 220 and two touchdowns. They also expect him to protect the ball. Newsflash: for his career, he has 60 TDs and 60 INTs! Why, especially under these circumstances—surrounded by the worst offensive talent in football—should we be expecting him to be a version of himself that he's never been? It's lunacy! I hope I'm wrong, but I think this is going to be a disaster of a game for Anderson. And that's not really his fault. My statline prediction: 10-22, 119 yds, 0 TD, 2 INT This is also the game where the defense falls back to Earth. Result: Colts 38, Bills 7

    Raiders now Shopping Derek Carr (?)

    Not even kidding when I say this -- Carr is an outspoken Christian. This might have legs.
  3. This is the major weakness of this board. It's awful.

    McDermott hangs up on Schopp and Bulldog

    Why is it crystal clear when Sal calls in, regardless of where he is?
  5. How did I know that 26 was going to be in here trying to take over this post with Allen hate? Seriously, guy, come on.

    McDermott hangs up on Schopp and Bulldog

    Several things: * McDermott is thin-skinned. He should be expecting questions like this. * It was embarrassing hearing Bulldog try to twist his questions so they didn't sound critical, but in my opinion, that just makes the recipient feel more disrespected. * My theory is that Schopp called McDermott afterwards to apologize. Because I think Schopp is actually a little kitty. * I think McDermott is actually legitimately intimidated by Schopp. Which is pathetic, because Schopp is an insecure little kitty. * This interview was full of subtle digs at Schopp along with obvious respect for Bulldog. It's obvious that McDermott is the type of person who treats you differently to prove a point and wants to maintain control by making people wonder where they stand.

    McDermott hangs up on Schopp and Bulldog

    I can't figure this out either. It's actually the AT&T hotline. Whenever McDermott or Sal are on it, it sounds like they are in studio. It's crystal clear. But when Murph is on it, it sounds like a regular phone call. What's the deal? Right, but that's not what he meant, and you know it. The question is whether or not he has a choice THIS WEEK.

    Sal Capaccio Gets Bombarded With Bad Takes From Bills Fans

    Sal is every bit the jerk that Schopp is when he's behind the controls. He literally listens to the caller and interrupts as soon as he finds something that they're wrong about and it doesn't matter what the main point of the call is.

    Josh Allen likes to talk some smack on the field

    It's because of the tweets. Not kidding.

    Allen looked very good today

    Would love to break it down; I just don't have time. Seriously.

    Allen looked very good today

    A lot! Guys, most plays were positive. I'm not saying he was perfect, but the criticism he's taking today is unbelievable. What exactly are your expectations? Remember, he threw 17 balls, so don't talk about the yardage total.

    Allen looked very good today

    Did you watch the f****** game or are you just looking at stats? It was clearly his best game. This thread is baffling to me.

    Allen =Jake Locker 2.0?

    Media pressure may eventually force the Bills' hand to replace Allen, and that is a crying shame.

    Allen =Jake Locker 2.0?

    I was not able to watch the game live yesterday, but I just watched it and I have to say I am deeply troubled by the media and fan reaction. I thought Josh Allen clearly played his best game yesterday. There were a lot of bright spots and a lot of throws from the pocket. You also can't just throw out plays that were called back. They still show his development. It's highly disturbing that everyone is saying he was awful and needs to be be replaced.

    Is Nate Peteman the worst QB in NFL history?

    This feels like emotional abuse. The aftermath of this Bills loss feels like one of those moments when you've been emotionally abused and you have that spasm of clarity: "Wow, I really don't deserve this. This shouldn't be happening." What we saw from Peterman doesn't compute. It should never happen.

    Is Nate Peteman the worst QB in NFL history?

    Just think. If daddy hadn't been turned on that one time...
  17. What does Jesus Christ have to do with it? Why would you randomly say that at the end of your response? Why not any other religious figure?
  18. Poor Peterman. He's not going to be in the league a third year and will miss out on his NFL pension. At least EJ got a pension.
  19. The most depressing thing is that as soon as we get a good quarterback, the defense will suck again. It is rare for both to converge -- for some reason. Exception: 2018 Rams

    Week 6 predictions: Bills at Texans

    Week 6: @ Houston Texans I posited last week that there are five factors of winning in the NFL: schemes, luck, passion, talent, and environment (listed in order of importance). I thought the Bills would beat the Titans because of a favorable blend of schemes, passion, luck, and environment. Coincidentally or not, it did happen—despite the talent gap—and at least for one week, my theory appears to have legs. This week, it's another very hard game to call. I'm not sure who will have the edge in SCHEMES (the biggest factor of winning), but as long as Deshaun Watson does play, both TALENT and ENVIRONMENT go in Houston's favor. That means the Bills may only be able to rely on PASSION and hope for LUCK this week, and that's not a likely recipe for success. However, if the Bills can out-scheme Houston, they may be able to overcome the discrepancy and make it a game... Three predictions: 1. The Bills will get a big jolt of LUCK when a big hit from a blitzing Tremaine Edmunds will knock Deshaun Watson out of the game. 2. Josh Allen will throw a touchdown pass to Kelvin Benjamin. This might not be a shocker to the general public, but it will be to Bills fans. This will go along with a better-than-expected day from Allen as he will actually put up respectable passing numbers despite the fearsome Texans pass rush. Here, I'm calling a SCHEMES advantage for the Bills. 3. Tre'Davious White will limit DeAndre Hopkins to less than 70 yards receiving. TALENT on TALENT, and White will win. Result: Bills 17, Texans 10

    Poyer Drama breaks open

    How in hell do you cheat on that ass?
  22. But the Jets are in an even better position... are we just assuming that they'll squander it?

    Andy Benoit: How Do the Bills Keep Pulling Off Upsets?

    The Bills won yesterday not because of talent but because of the other four factors of winning, three of which are more important than talent: schemes, luck, passion, and environment.
