  1. I was on the Metcalf train last year, but view Metcalf as a completely different style player. I thought he would've been a perfect match for Josh's skill set. I think that with a bigger guy, Josh would be more willing to throw a 50/50 ball, instead of overthrowing guys by 10 yds.
  2. That's what scares me most about this guy. I'm not exactly a resident expert, but that's the overall impression I'm left with. You summed up how I feel. Just like some of the older QB's are starting to be overtaken by the young gun slingers. Who's the next AJ Green in this draft? I don't say Julio, because he's too rare.
  3. I think Jeudy and Lamb are considerably better than all the rest. They both seem to have elite speed, and are over 6'. Shenault looks like a good swiss army knife to have, but not like your typical X receiver, that we desperately need. I know they'll likely be long gone, but it seems like every year, receivers go in a different order than expected. If Jeudy or Lamb slips a few spots, make sure you get them. Outside of those two, go BPA in the 1st and than maybe trade up in the 2nd for a WR, if you really like them. I agree, that we absolutely need to provide Josh with more weapons, but picking up a WR, doesn't outweigh a pass rusher or elite offensive lineman if available at pick 22. Teams with elite lines, are the ones that are winning Superbowls, not elite WR's. Elite TE's might be a different story.
  4. I agree with most of what your wrote, at least from the approach aspect. Difference of opinion on a few players, but agree for the most part. I would like to see them double dip at WR. If somehow Amari Cooper walks, we need to go all in on him. Kind of had a down year, but that whole team was off. The culture there was all screwed up. He's a rare talent, that doesn't possess the diva trait that most WR's have. The same thing with AJ Green, except he's older and injured. If we sign a guy like Green, we still have to draft his replacement, which also serves as insurance policy against injury. Also need a complementary battering ram to Singletary. Still a lot of work to do on offense.
  5. I always look forward to your detail write-ups, but your story at the end there, was by far my favorite part this week. How sweet it is!
  6. I don't know if he would've gotten to it, but he definitely mistimed his jump. Fouts saw and mentioned the same thing during the broadcast. Said that it looks like he could of gotten that extra needed step to get to the ball, had he not jumped early. But he's a RB, and it's hard to blame him. Josh missed plenty of throws, outside of that one. But he also was dealing with a lot of blitzing, and often times, our guys were not winning their matchups. As a whole, our offense got dominated by their defense. Josh needs to improve, but he also needs a better supporting cast. I know that we made a ton of moves this past offseason, but that only moved the needle from historically bad to respectable. Now we need to move the needle again, from respectable to good. Keep improving the o-line, and add a dynamic weapon in the passing game, starting with a big but fast receiver that can match up well. Someone who maybe would've caught that ball that Brown got beat on. Brown would also have a lot more success, if he slides down to WR2.
  7. As I mention above, below average screen game. I don't know why. When we call it? How it's designed (poor disguise)? Maybe both, along with other factors.
  8. It was early and often, and we did a very poor job of countering. The best way to counter blitzing, is with quick screens. Use the other teams aggression against them. Unfortunately, we have a below average screen game.
  9. Martindale took Daboll to school, and it wasn't even close. I know JA had a bad game, but he was absolutely getting killed, from the opening whistle, all the way until the end of the game. Even against cover 0, it's hard to beat when guys get there, as fast as they did. Several times, I saw someone come straight up the middle with a free shot at Allen. That led to sacks and a lot of other big hits. I thought he was going to get killed yesterday, and was shocked that he finished the game. Like another poster pointed out, Baltimore was vulnerable on the edges, yet we decided to try and attack the middle of their defense way too often. I was screaming at the TV and pulling my hair out. Frank Gore.....up the middle. and then we get to the half yard line, and we try a sweep with Gore to the outside. That single play almost cost us the only TD of the game. Big physical defenses like NE and Baltimore have to be attacked with backs and TE's. Forced those big heavy LB's into coverage. Thats why we started having success against NE. They had a hard time covering yeldon. It's also what NE does with White all the time, and KC with Kelce. We should of played a 2 back set with Singletary and TJ Yeldon, to serve as extra pass protectors against the blitz, and also for quick screens and outlets. fake screen to one side, and hit the other side. It was as bad and vanilla as a game plan that I've seen.
  10. I couldn't agree more with this. We all knew or where at least hoping to keep it close enough until the end, which we did. It came down to one drive and one play. He made a good throw and a good decision, but Brown failed to create the separation needed. We know he needs to improve against cover0, but I also saw too many blitzers come right up the middle. That's suppose to be priority number one, to pick up the guy with the closest path to the qb. No chance when guys come in that quick.
  11. Thanks! I don't know about Vinovich, but glad we didn't get Boger. His crews seems to be flag happy. Any idea about the broadcast team, maybe we can get Romo?
  12. We all know he's taken a pretty good step this year, but all that matters is a W in the win column. Also he has an additional 7 tds on the ground. That's 20tds in 10 games. On pace for 32tds, not to shabby. That has to put him in the top 10 I'm guessing
  13. I was a little worried about the whole 3-cone thing, until I started hearing that a lot of the bigger WR don't even attempt it, because of what happened to DK. Now, I really wanted DK, but not over Oliver. I mean, it was close, but I just thought that it was more important to get someone that could disrupt the pass game. That being said, I couldn't believe that we passed on him, and every other WR in the draft. There was a lot to chose from, and a lot of them are making a nice impact on their team (AJ Brown, DK, and Deebo) to name a few. DK's skill set was a perfect match for Josh Allen. ME RUN FAST...ME CATCH the ball. 7ft wing span with a 4.3 40. I would like to think that Josh would be letting go of those deep balls with a little more confidence, knowing that if he under throws it some, he has this massive WR that isn't going to get out-muscled for the ball. Right now DK is on pace for 952 yds, 8 TDS, and almost 60 catches. Good chance he ends up with a 1,000 yds receiving. This regime's ability to find receivers in the draft worry me. I heard on WGR this morning, that the Bills are the only team in the league to not have a single skill position player drafted in the 1st 2 rounds. Philly leads the league with 8. This was a problem on Sunday, and is a big problem with how Daboll runs his offense. His offense is based off of attacking mismatches. This only works, if you have the personal to do that. We obviously do not, at least not yet.
  14. Exactly, not all interceptions are equal. If you have a guy deep and it's picked because of an under-throw, but it was the right call, it was at least a good decision, just a bad throw. Not the hero ball, across the field type of garbage. Coaches have to tell him that they are ok with that. Don't be afraid of a pick in that situation. The other thing I hate, and some of it is on Josh, but I think this falls on Daboll even more is that we love to run it up the middle for 2 yards on 2nd and short, and than take a deep shot on 3rd and short. They have those two things backwards. It drove me crazy yesterday, and we see it every-week.
