  1. Ravens are going to tag Lamar, and expect to get 2 first + when some desperate team wants to go after him. pretty much why they havent extended him. they wont break the bank, and want some compensation for losing him. only thing that makes sense. smart imo. that Watson deal has f'd the QB contracts for the foreseeable future. no team wants to give that much guaranteed at this time. Roman out doesnt exactly predict Lamar is gone, sure opens the door though.
  2. we already have a TE that can catch, and block. Gesicki can only do one of those things relatively well.
  3. oh ffs.....you cant even read. good enough reason right there to end this back and forth. its too bad, i usually find you to be one of the regular posters on here that actually has some common sense.
  4. lol ok.... imma make sure i bookmark this thread and revisit it later. i sure hope im wrong and the Bengals and god willing the Chefs dont play this D against us. you do realize those 1 on 1 long bombs ask alot in pass pro right? like for instance, the play where Josh fumbles and they scored a TD right? i never said you dont take shots. you dont do it 70% of the time though.
  5. only works, if it actually works. there was a reason why Miami was gifting those 1 on 1s. daring our QB to make low percentage throws. you guys all remember Tyrod right? same crap teams dared him to do. yes Josh is miles better than Tyrod, and yes he can hit those occasionally. if youre gonna live and die by those throws, youre going to end up really disappointed. defenses bait those throws.....to kill drives. end of story.
  6. of course not, gj picking the one time it worked to try and make your point though. go find the other 6 that killed drives.
  7. Shaq is a much better run defender than pass rusher. which is fine. ideally you'd want a guy that can do it all but it is what it is a this point. i actually had to really watch to see if Groot was playing yesterday. he was very quiet. he can not be quiet. has to be better.
  8. the defense should be better. Frazier is trying to cover up many problems at the moment though. missing Hyde is huge. Tre isnt nearly 100% yet. appears Elam isnt good enough to play? yet makes plays when hes in there. i dont think Frazier trusts Elam in zone coverage. Poyer is a soldier, been playing banged up all year. Dane is passable but not really elite. its tough to do much with a back end this underwhelming right now. ill admit the D isnt playing all that great right now, people want Frazier gone, be careful of what you wish for. his D has been more than good enough for many seasons straight, even with all the injuries. 13-3 with loses by less than a total of 10 points. the Offense hasnt been great in alot of games. D is still top 5 in most categories. Frazier is pushing this D along with scheme and ductape, making the best of a bad situation.
  9. just cut down on the self inflicted mistakes. protect the ball, catch the ball. ezpz. im sure they realize and know this all too well. Josh was not a happy camper after the game. he knows it wasnt all that great of a win. its a win, live to fight another day, but things have to be better. i expect them to really bear down and work at it this week.
  10. i do agree, to a point. its hard to decide when, and when not to call it though. tough job.
  11. there was zero reason to launch the ball 50 yards on low percentage tosses when blitzed or when Josh is running around on a broken play. every play should have short, medium, and long concepts. i dont know if it was Josh and his inner hero ball coming out again, but it sucked. Josh could have run much more than he did yesterday, but for some reason was launching bombs all over the place. i felt like i was back to the bad old days of watching Tyrod just chuck it up and pray. there has to be better options.
  12. i always get worried when its 3rd and long for this defense. they give up waaaay tooooo many of them. its usually zone that causes it.
  13. im not sure how the players actually respect McDaniels. im told hes wicked smart, thats cool, but he gives off that poser hipster vibe that im sure the actual talent on the team isnt really into. ive met alot of large football players, tough guys, meatheads. strikes me as odd that theyd follow a guy that gives off those vibes. just his voice alone is irritating. winning cures all evils though. mbe hes a genuis, and guys love to win. mbe its just that easy.
  14. keep in mind that we the viewers have the advantage of repeated slow motion replays from great angles on nearly every single play. the refs do have a difficult job in my opinion. i dont necessarily blame them for missed called, or bad calls unless its right in front of them. this speaks more to the NFL needing to give them more help, which of course will cost more $$$$, and we all know that the NFL is hurting business wise right? we want the games, called fairly, and consistently. thats a tough ask when humans are involved, especially with the speed of the game. having to make judgment calls on plays where you cant see the play clearly and its going 100mph, thats a tough job. i imagine with the integration of legalized gambling into the NFLs product such a key motivator nowadays, that the NFL is going to have to take a look at how refs are calling games, and how to help them out more. you cant have people wagering on a product that will rile them up if they lose due to bad calls by refs. bad play by the players, fine, not the refs though.
  15. after watching all the games this weekend i can only suspect the NFL told the refs to keep the flags in their pockets unless it was something so blatantly obvious and egregious that they had to call it. doesnt explain the block on Andrews, but it sure explains alot of the other stuff i saw uncalled. imo the Phins could have had at least 7 more delay of game penalties that werent called.
  16. happy for Isiah, buried on the depth chart here, couldnt stay healthy. probably not a good special teamer. gets a chance someplace else. happens, not mad about it.
  17. in the end its a win. they survived and have another chance to show people that they deserve to be talked about as one of the elites of the league. sure didnt show it today, doesnt feel like a win imo. go out there and show us all that you arent a mistake prone team. i dont expect blowouts, i do expect a team to not create its own problems.
  18. bout time, get Josh back into the game, with his LEGS!!!!!
  19. Dorsey, or McDermet need to get in Josh's ear and tell him to stop throwing low percentage bombs on broken plays, get the friggen first down. was guys open there where he didnt have to throw it 50 yards downfield, or better yet, run. 5 or 6 times today where he could have just run for the first and kept a drive alive. hero ball is back, and its friggen bad.
  20. cant stand listening to McDaniels voice or looking at his hipster face.
  21. it does matter though......because those people arent homers who make excuses for why a team cant get out of their own way. i respect the Chefs, because they dont shoot themselves in the foot nearly as often as this team does.
  22. this is why other fanbases dont take our team seriously. sure they respect some of the talent, but they know that the Bills will continue to make boneheaded mistakes at the worst possible time. just do the basics ffs. catch the ball. protect the ball. the basics.
