  1. The hold on Dawkins never should have happened. It wasn’t a free play. One of the offensive linemen jumped after the Offside to create a dead ball penalty. It should have been whistled dead. This to me was another referee blunder in this game. maybe the other calls I wouldn’t call blunders. They were some weird plays that somehow always seem to favor the Pats. But that call our O lineman jumped to get the play called dead. They never blew the whistle. The outcome...favored the Pats. Ironically you would be stoked that they didn’t whistle it dead cause it’s a free shot at a deep ball. But again the bills get called on holding. So moot point.
  2. I’m not saying they earned or deserved to win. However the last time we beat the Patriots at home Brady threw 4 INT’s and still almost won that game as well. They happen and it’s part of the game. We had a chance to win the game still. Several chances really. We got some calls in our favor and some not. I get it. But the game could have gone our way. Even with the turnovers. Penalties make a difference. That play alone could have been the game clincher. It just seems typical that it wouldn’t go in our favor. Just like the hands to the face calls that seem to be ignored. Pats get a lot of breaks. Maybe it’s just luck if the Irish.
  3. I’m still a little miffed there was no PI on that call. The defender was in Yeldon’s lap not looking at the ball. But hey it’s the Pats so can’t say I’m shocked.
  4. I think the play that hurt us the most was late in the 3rd quarter. It was an Offside penalty on NE that was negated by a holding on Dawkins. One of our offensive linemen false started when the defender jumped Offside. The play should have been whistled dead as an Offside 5 yard penalty. But they let the play go live. Then it bit us in the butt. that among many other calls that constantly can go 50/50 and just always seem to fall in favor of the Patriots. I know everyone is pissed on JA’s 3 picks but to me it’s a wash. It’s almost like punting or changing field position. Especially when Bojo shanks and makes 22 yard punts. I realize this cost us the game ultimately but when you live by the pass you die by the pass. Most QB’s throwing for yards throw some INT’s. However to contradict myself Brady only won this game because he didn’t take any chances. So there’s a time and place to everything. In a game against the Pats JA needs to learn he can’t do everything and we don’t need him to do everything. In a game this close though Brady didn’t win it for the Pats. He just didn’t lose it. So I realize JA probably lost the game. I think if he’s in the game he pulls out the win on that drive. I really do. But getting rid of the ball and throwing it away probably keeps this game closer. 13-16 or even 16-16 late in the 4th which makes for a different ending. For anyone trying to defend the hit on JA because he’s a runner you are mistaken. A defender can not target another player’s helmet with his own helmet or forearm. That’s a RB, WR, and especially a QB. The rule doesn’t say especially a QB. That’s my own add. But the rule is on any runner. It doesn’t limit it to a defenseless runner. In this case however JA was wrapped up and most definitely a defenseless runner. it was nice NE had more penalties than the Bills. I feel like there were at least 3-5 more that should have gone in our favor. The blocked punt I assume is the responsibility of the personal protector or the punter. They should have recognized the gunners not covered. Either bring them in for extra protection or audible for a pass. That’s freaking frustrating. I’m not about moral victories anymore than the next fan. Would have been awesome to get the win here. As a realist I never had this marked as a W when looking over the schedule so the calm version of me sees how great our defense looks and thinks we can roll up some serious wins this season. Also I like our chances in Foxboro later this year. I believe JA will make smarter decisions as the season progresses. I’m willing to live with the growing pains. I’m glad they aren’t hiding his inexperience like all the other QB’s we’ve had. It’s refreshing to see the coaches have confidence in him and want him to develop. Please learn from this game Josh. Please! I don’t have the patience to have us draft another QB in 2-3 years.

  6. This looks about as accurate as I can imagine. They are keeping Long though. Probably over a 7th LB. Everything else looks perfect in my opinion. People thinking we go into the season without a fullback apparently haven't been watching Bills football all last season. Also I think they are too smart to not sign a different punter. Remember last season they cut their training camp punter and grabbed Bojo. Wouldn't be surprised to see something similar this season. Bojo blew it this week in my opinion. If Carter shows anything Thursday then it's his after Bojo's chance last Friday.
