    Some people just get so unbelievably opinionated about things that they have only watched and never actually done themselves.  Yeah I’m calling you out.  This is typical beer-swilling bravado.  There’s so much more to NFL strategy than you will ever come close to understanding.  But you want to sound so frigging smart, don’t you?


    You don’t know jack. You’re just the kind of idiot I would love to hear spouting off with your dumb mouth at a bar while I’m there.  You think you’re some kind of genius or something.  Until you look over and see someone like me about to shut you up.  Then you sit the F down and finally shut your yap.  

    Sorry for being so forward.  I’m just so tired of arm-chair know- it-alls like you trying to impress everyone with your BS.  Save it for someone who gives a F.




    So, in real life you’re 5’2” tall weigh in at 127 pounds, and rarely leave your parents basement,  I’m doing this right, right? 😁👍

    Go Bills!!!

    My fear is that he will lose out on the Bears gig because he insists on bringing Trubisky with him.

    “If” and I do mean “if” Dabol were to be that stupid he would deserve not get a HC slot, not that I believe he is anyone’s top choice for that job,

    There was an article, I think in TBN, on what exactly happens at halftime.  I've been looking for it...anyway, in the article, Frazier talks about how they don't like to really change the game plan because they feel it sends a wrong message to the players "we've worked on this all week and now you're giving it up so quickly"



    To me, that is not an ideal way to conduct a game strategy, its the same as saying that they don’t have nor want a viable plan “B” when plan “A” isn’t working,  if I’m a player, I would not find that attitude comforting…, it’s has been the root cause of all of our losses this year, oh well…, 


    Go Bills!!!

    Mcdermott lets his coaches coach and call games for the most part un interrupted.  Last year he got heavily involved on the defense game day.  I think he is paying attention more to the offense.  Getting Allen under center and more base personal is 100% to me McDermott’s call.  

    Yup, I think so as well, it’s a good thing to make those tweaks as need shows, imo, Dabol tends to get to cute at times, and dislikes to make adjustments within a game without prompting…,

    I think with the offense it is easy to fall into a dont panic mindset.  Allen will get it.  The plays maybe be right but more is going into not making the play than Allen seeing it.

     I think Mcdermott needs to use more authority game day.  Hey we cant block so and so switch it up.  Help so and so on passing plays.  More nuanced.  No play calling, no scheme change.  Simple nudge here and there.  Basically, control the game.  


    Buffalo scores 21 to 29 the offense has issues.  I think the struggle on offense is slightly over stated.  They have been statistically, very good.  A perfect offensive performance Buffalo might score 70 points.  

    I agree with your description of how it can be handled, it does appear that within, say a quarter, or a half, even minor adjustments don’t happen when the O or D is having issues, I’m just a fan, but it appears that there is a fair bit of stubbornness / reluctance on the coaches behalf to tweak what they are doing, within a game, when their game plan is not working so well, jmo.


    Go Bills!!!

    Their coverage grades on defenders in zone schemes are almost as useless and inconsistent as their offense line grading.

    Well, it’s pff, they are a bit of a running joke, most of the time, that fans / talking heads reference them at all is jumping the shark.., they have always made stuff up, and folk still fall for it,

    All I can say is I like the Bills coaches willing and able to make adjustments in season. Let's hope that keeps up and anything is possible. 

    It is a positive sign for sure,  but they need to be able to make those adjustments/ changes within games, in-fact, within quarters, to be able to win tight games, the inability to do so has been the issue in our losses this season,  glad to see they can read a trail, as it were. 

    Go Bills!!!

    I mean, it's entirely possible that they watch Bates in practice and that's how they evaluate him at G and at T



    Again, to be fair - McDermott has repeatedly said that Dawkins is recovered from Covid now.  Of course, it's entirely possible that he's suffering from more subtle lingering effects (mental), but it's also possible he just let being a celebrity go to his head and is struggling to get back into the right physical shape and mindset.

    Could very well be the case with DD, but regardless, the end results haven’t been what one would call good imo, the O line certainly does not need more performance issues…, 


    there is a joke in there somewhere.., 😁

    Ofcourse, there is no sensible reason to be vaxxed… #%^*+=&$

    …,  this is the very scenario that will botch up this season’s potential,  ya gotta have your best players available,  look what Covid did to DD, hasn’t been the same guy since, now our RTs health has a big question mark on him, all we can do is hope for the best,🤞  like you said…,

    WR coaches don’t always transition smoothly to coordinator, especially if he doesn’t have a full grasp of run game concepts. I don’t know if he does or not. 

    Do any of our offensive coaches have a “FULL” grasp of run game concepts?  asking for a friend…,

    Suddenly no run game.

    Suddenly WR are not open. 

    Suddenly TE not important

    Suddenly very little misdirection 

    Suddenly imagination is gone

    Our OC has regressed, his play calling and when to call certain plays is frankly miserable, that and the O line can not stop a bull rush, every team we play against knows this, so we get what we are seeing.

    Serious question.  Are the refs rookies?  Or inexperienced?  Why the sudden plague of stupidity and incompetence?

    Gambling on games, the Owners/league make a lot of money on it and it is not particularly hard to manipulate…, the Refs are doing what they are told to do, I mean, what else is there that would account for this level of terrible reffing???
