  1. I think you articulated my point better than I could. It’s stupid to just say their QB is better (or as good) and so we should just not bother trying to effect him. We are close. We need someone there who makes a difference. It ups everyone’s play on defense. I don’t think the cap argument is a real argument. Look at teams like the Rams. They keep reading picks and shelling out huge contracts. Somehow they make it work. I’m sure it will eventually rear its ugly head for them. But surely we can manipulate the cap to get one stud dude in here. That’s how I feel.
  2. Gronk I mentioned cause he was fresh on my mind when creating the post. Maybe I mentioned him cause I knew he was a FA from an article I just read. He really wasn’t the focus of my post and you’re right I shouldn’t have added him to this post as it’s a separate topic. Also I agree he is a POS. I do however imagine he would be the type of FA the front office brings in for the DE position. A proven aging vet. I do hope we get someone more youthful myself.
  3. A game wrecker finishes the sacks that so many of our front four could not do. I am not of the mindset of just saying Mahomes is as good as Josh so we should not try to effect him at all. Our front four failed. Sure the chiefs did as well. But that doesn’t mean we need to settle on that. Get to Mahomes. Especially if we aren’t blitzing. Mahomes struggled earlier to find throws because our back 7 actually was holding up for a while. By the end of the game they were gassed and understandably.
  4. I don’t disagree with your observations of the Chiefs game wreckers but that doesn’t change my stance. A game wrecker for us would have swayed the outcome of that game. We contained rushed several times because our guys just can’t win one on ones.
  5. I don’t necessarily disagree. But wouldn’t you say if Josh is playing at the same level as he was in the playoffs that is enough offense? We just need to make 2-3 more stops against powerful offenses like the Chiefs and some of the up and coming teams? I would be a bit bummed if we didn’t clean up CB. Especially with Tre White not necessarily being ready for the start of the season. Even if Hughes comes back I think they’re looking to add a veteran pass rusher. Remember they made a push for JJ Watt.
  6. Yea but we are banking a super bowl window on guys developing. I sure hope the front office feels the same as me about the priority. I realize I’m not the pro here but it seems obvious that this is where we are coming up short. Not to mention Beane in his presser eluded to the guys needing to do more/hitting rookie walls. I think he sees the same thing. Time will tell. TJ Watt changes games wouldn’t you agree? Teamed up with an Ed Oliver type maybe. I don’t think he’d be available. Maybe Chicago wants to move on from Mack for a rebuild?
  7. I think in the moment I just threw my hands up as if this stuff happens. Shockingly calm. Yesterday I was frustrated. Today I am actually more pissed off. That should of been Josh Allen's legendary cummupance moment. The world should be talking about him outplaying Mahomes. Quite frankly at that point he was leading in passing TD's and yardage. When you score a go ahead TD with 13 seconds it should basically be an automatic that you just won the game for your team. He got jobbed big time. As much as I try to convince myself we will be good for a long time and compete for a long time with Allen (which I fully believe), this year specifically the path to the Super Bowl as well as a Super Bowl victory is arguably the easiest remaining opponents in recent memory. This really would have been our best shot that I can ever recall. That I believe is why I am pissed. Don't misinterpret my post as wanting to clean house and fire McDermott. I don't want that. I am just pissed and need time to digest. I really want the continuity. Keep the core players and staff. Upgrade where it's been blatantly obvious to all (Defensive pass rush, CB, maybe LB). I am not that hard on Edmunds as everyone else either. I think he is doing what he is coached to do. Yes I believe he is limited in his coverage recognition. Hopefully that develops more. I wouldn't get rid of him though. I think a game breaking DE changes the look for the entire defense. Still disappointed. I haven't been able to watch the game agin yet.
  8. To me this is the biggest offseason question. There are talented CB's in the draft. I am sure we can move money and cap to get needed FA's. But a DE difference maker is what we need. A game wrecking dude. Honestly I would trade 2 #1 picks to get one. At this point I am tired of watching our D-line not get it done. Side note Gronk s a FA. Wouldn't hurt adding him as much of a tool as he is. Great blocker and red zone threat.
  9. Is it just me or does this guy look just like Tom Green and sound like him too?
  10. I’m guessing he gets a scrotal tuck to make it easier to run with those massive brass balls he’s got dangling between his legs.
  11. I think the worst play on defense may have been the screen in overtime on 2nd and 10 or 3rd and 10 when the whole defensive line recognized the screen except 57 which was the side they were running it to. If he had realized what was going on and reacted accordingly that could have dropped that play for a loss. The 13 seconds to allow them field goal range is brutal. Josh really deserved to celebrate tonight as well as the rest of the team. I do think the defense played better than everyone will remember. We did force a few field goals in the red zone. To their credit. Also they were on the field a ton because the offense had way too many three an md outs. They must have been exhausted by the time the end of the game/OT rolled around. That really is on the offense (maybe play calling). It is a team sport and you win and lose as a team. Still with 13 seconds left you have to be able to keep them out of FG range. This game made it obvious how badly we need speed/difference makers on the defensive line to me. People will pick on the secondary and LB’s but they covered well on lots of plays. Sure another elite CB would be great. I still think a top tier DE makes a bigger difference though. I also wouldn’t be opposed if we leaned into offense more at this point and went the way of KC. Just try to out score everyone. Josh I think proved he is next level elite. This was as good of a chance at a Lombardi as I can recall. Very frustrating. I will walk away though with a ton of confidence that we will go toe to toe with the big dogs for the foreseeable future. We should win some of these. Josh has ice in his veins. Very much being overlooked after that finale but not by me.
  12. We need an impact pass rusher. Stud Corner would be great but an impact pass rusher makes a bigger difference in my opinion. Josh Allen is going to win us a super bowl. That was an amazing two drives he put together. Sucks to be done for this season cause this may have been as good of a shot to win a super bowl as ever. Still that was as good of a game finish as the Chargers/Raiders regular season game. We have the QB. Really a lot of good pieces but we need playmakers on defense I believe. Difference makers. Von Miller showed up big today. We lack that kind of player on defense.
  13. That 3rd down scramble for 35 yards probably should have been called back for holding. Obada got tackled. It was pretty blatant. Eventually that will be caught I’m guessing. Our D line is getting there. Just need to get him down.
  14. I think Josh is about to throw for 400 yards. Bills going to put on a clinic.
  15. He left out Tom Brady, Ryan Tanehill, and of Course Patrick Mahomes ironically…
  16. The reason this fan is so epic is because he has a laminated menu in his hand instead of a play sheet.
  17. Everyone is so quick to forget we have a great defense. Just cause we don’t have the marquee names on our defense and KC does does not mean that they are better. We have the better team even if Bills fans are scared to admit it. I feel like Josh is about to go on a heater like he did last season. Only this time it’s in the playoffs. Like the year Flacco or Rogers won the Super Bowl. They were unstoppable. The stars are aligning. This board needs to buck up and get excited for this game. It’s going to happen!
  18. I’d say the Titans yes is on Josh. The play call is still argue was right. But Dawkins got blown up and Josh slipped. First NE game Josh put a dime on 3rd and 19 to Dawson Knox in the end zone in 50 mph wind. That game wasn’t lost on Josh. I wouldn’t even put it on coaching as the plays were there to be made but the players didn’t deliver. Several times. Tampa again Josh went for Diggs on final drive in 4th quarter. Diggs should have drawn a pass interference but that never happened. Yes we lost in OT but again plays were there to be had. I put that on the players. Jags our offensive line was horrendous. Not sure if Josh wasn’t checking to the right plays or what. I felt like that game he was trying to win the game with one throw and kept making it worse when all he had to do was play us into FG range. Agree or disagree with how those games played out we are where we are. But the Bills have been playing really good football lately. Even the games where Josh hasn’t been dominant. The O-line looks day and night different. The defense has been playing even better. That doesn’t translate to an automatic win this week but I feel really strongly about our chances. I feel more confident about Sunday than I do last year’s championship game. Im going to smoke some brisket, sit back, and enjoy the show as the rest of America learns first hand that we are the team to beat in the AFC. We’ve got a date with destiny. Enjoy being a fan this season cause Josh is about to turn it on for a run to the super bowl.
  19. Last year coming off the bye Josh went on a several game heater starting with MNF vs SF. Perhaps last week was the beginning of another heater? https://www.espn.com/nfl/team/schedule/_/name/buf/season/2020 This is going to happen Bills Mafia. It’s best to relax and just embrace this championship run we inevitably are on! Go Bills!
  20. I don’t know what it is but I have the same feeling about Josh Allen this year as I did watching Joe Flacco his super bowl run as well as Aaron Roger’s his super bowl run. Both of those years with both of those players I remember watching the playoffs live just thinking “he’s unstoppable”. They just kept ripping it and dropping dimes the whole playoff run. Coming up big under pressure on game winning drives. I just feel really good about him this run. We have the team to do it this year. I truly believe that more so than last year we can do this. Obviously I could be completely wrong. It’s just my feeling but put me down on the record as thinking we go the distance this year. Chiefs can’t stop destiny!
  21. It’s one of the reasons I wanted us to draft him. He plays the mobile QB’s well. Holds the point and gets off the block when they try to escape. Contain rush is how we are going to beat Mahomes.
  22. Have to believe the Bills can gain more first downs than the Steelers. This is brutal watch this game.
  23. I rewatched the first game vs the Pats last night and holy smokes....Josh put some dimes right into our WR's/TE's chests that were dropped. If they had come down with any of those that final score outcome is significantly different. That game could have easily been a 2 score victory in our favor. Also the faux delayed game penalty on the drive we were moving the ball into the wind. Could of, should of, would of. We lost I get it. But that game Josh looked like a super hero and unfortunately the story was written differently. Similar in my opinion to last year when Josh drove us down vs the Cardinals and threw a TD to win that game. Then our defense blew a hail Mary and all anyone will remember from that game is how we lost. not the fact that Josh had an impressive come from behind drive. I would never say I am overconfident about a win but I feel like our team has found itself and they will do whatever it takes to win this game. I feel really good about tomorrow night. That being said not much sleep for me. It is like Christmas Eve. Go Bills!
  24. Looking like Sunday would be the best forecast for a home game in Buffalo next week. I want the Pats but really don’t care when all is said and done. Our defense was on fire today!
  25. Chiefs lose and Bills win tomorrow and we at the very least move to 3rd seed. If Bengals lose I’m not sure if we bump up to 2 seed but I believe so.
