  1. I didn't say that Reich called a bad game at all. I think his decision to go for it on 4th and goal from the 4 yard line was a bad call. It wasn't 4th and 1, or even 4th and 2 where you would have a decent chance of converting. They needed 4 yards which is a tough get, especially considering they were right on the goal line and Bills defense didn't have to defend the entire field, just the endzone. I respect your opinion and understand your point of view, we just have a difference of opinion on this one. 🍻
  2. Three Colts in this game were pivotal in helping the Bills walk away with a victory today even though the Bills didn't play a very good game. These mistakes by the Colts are the kinds of mistakes the Bills used to make during the Drought that allowed them to repeatedly tear defeat from the jaws of victory. It's nice to finally be on the other side of the fence on those game altering plays. 1. Frank Reich, coach for the Colts, passes on a chip shot 22 yard field goal to go up 13-7 with 1:52 left in the first half. He decides instead to go for it on 4th and 4 and the Colts turn o
  3. According to Weather.com the Bills will have near perfect weather for their first home playoff game in 20+ years. 32 degrees at kickoff, zero chance of precipitation, partly cloudy, and most importantly... winds at just 6 mph. As good as it gets for Orchard Park in January. Let it rip Josh!!! https://weather.com/weather/hourbyhour/l/5c42bffa43df6982dc129049735910193259e13f1cf064308586bb9c73e6f515
  4. Phillip Rivers. Two interceptions, one for a TD.
  5. I think this probably means Beasley is out. If we had Diggs, Beasley, Roberts, Davis, McKenzie, and Brown ready to go, I don't know if you call up another WR from the practice squad.
  6. It's a fair point and something I've thought about throughout this season. The fact that Allen had a better road record last season played into the thought that he got too amped up at home and played a bit too manic at home, the Kyle Brandt "Sugar High Allen". The lack of a crowd this year could have let him focus more on the game and less on the atmosphere. We'll know that answer in 24 hours.
  7. The measure of success in this League, ultimately, is winning playoff games and Super Bowls. I love Josh Allen. I think he has a higher ceiling than Mahomes. I think he has the potential to win multiple Super Bowls. Until Josh wins a Super Bowl and shows he can still excel when all the chips are in the middle of the table, Mahomes is still the better QB. If Josh can grab a Lombardi this year or next then I think it's fair to look at this argument again. Josh hasn't shown he can succeed at the highest levels of competition yet. Here's to hoping Josh checks off that box emphat
  8. This is the way the coaching carousel works in the NFL. A hundred different factors go into who gets a job each off season, and one of those factors is who is available to interview at the start of the off season, which for 18 teams, starts today. The internet musings of one Inigo Montoya will have no karmic effect on what happens or doesn't happen to Mr. Brian Daboll. I think it's fair for a fan of the Bills to hope that we can keep the band together for one more year if we don't win the Super Bowl this year. I think it's inevitable that Daboll ends up a head coach, it's just my wish tha
  9. NFL rules limit the ability of other teams to interview assistant coaches / coordinators if the coach's team is still in the playoff hunt. If the Bills had earned a first round bye this year other teams could have interviewed Daboll during the bye week, so the lack of a bye week helps a bit in that regard. If the Bills continue to win, the earliest any team can legally interview Daboll for a head coaching gig would be the two week period between the AFC Championship game and the Super Bowl. Let's hope that the Bills continue to win and that head coach needy teams start hiring hea
  10. I am beginning to believe the only thing that can keep us from playing in the Super Bowl this year is a virus.
  11. Even with that amazing stat line, the best thing is that we all know that there's still some meat left on the bone.
  12. "Life is just a twisting, sucking, eddy of despair, occasionally highlighted by false hopes, in an ever darkening universe." My best friend in basic training told me that one night and I have never forgotten it (he was quite the optimist😉). Over the last two decades those words have been a succinct description of what it's been like to be a Bills' fan. I'm not going to belabor the point of how bad it's been, we all have the scars to show for it. What strikes me now after watching this season unfold is that for the first time in a long time I don't think this seaso
  13. I think Belichick was upset because he just got humiliated on national TV. Making things worse is that he knows he is going to be coaching the third best team in the division for the foreseeable future, and there's not a damn thing he can do about it. That BB press conference was the cherry on top of a fabulous Monday night.
  14. My point is the same people advocating on this thread that the Bills play to win a meaningless Week 17 game will suddenly forget that opinion and nuke McDermott for being stupid enough to play Allen in a meaningless game. The chance of the Bills winning a single playoff game without Allen is <5%.
  15. I'd rather play the Phins than Derrick Henry in bad weather in Orchard Park.
  16. If Josh Allen gets injured playing in a meaningless Week 17 game against the Dolphins, every post on this message board will be dropping napalm on McDermott. If there is nothing to play for, let the starters get in for a series, and then sit them just like last year. We didn't lose the Houston game because the starters rested the week before. We came out hot and got on top of the Texans early and only a comedy of errors and bad officiating cost us the game.
  17. I'd go four or five wide and let Josh pick them apart until Bill cries uncle. I trust our wide outs to get a step of separation off the line. I trust Josh to make the right read and put the ball where it needs to go. Bill would like nothing better than to take the ball out of Josh's hands. We need to try and stop him from doing it. Just one man's opinion.
