    It's missing key Data on injuries. Like the fish game heat illness. This chart or post missing key points.

    some key points missing from this

     

    1) Who decided the relative quality of the player missed. 
    2) Do they count people on IR? 

    I look at the injury reports every week and it has “seemed” that we have in general been missing more starters than our opponents.

    We were supposed to look for a starting left tackle at the trade deadline?

    I am certain the 49ers would have traded Trent Williams for a conditional 6th round draft pick and a bucket of Buffalo Wings (celery/ carrots included). 
     

    It is shocking we don’t have at least 4 all-pros as backups ready to move in to position at a moments notice.

    In the end it’s all excuses.  31 other NFL teams don’t care about our injuries or lack of practice 

    Or our pathetic 8-3 record good for second place in the AFC. last year after 13 games we were 7-6 and certainly had less injury issues. Would love to have won the Jets or Vikings games .. but sitting in a very good spot right now

    That 90s Kelly led team was elite on both sides of the ball with huge playmakers. One should never compare those teams with the current Bills team. It's not even close. You have several Hall of famers from that team. Four straight super Bowl appearances. Stop with the non sense. There was no panic because they were that good. They proved it year after year. This version of the Bills has proven they can't even get to an AFC Championship game. Maybe that's why there's concern. 

    1988 2020 Bills AFC Championship - got beat soundly in both games

    1989 2021 Bills Divisional Round - lost a heartbreaker

    1990-1994 SBs ..

     

    So not seeing a difference so far.

    A possible answer. But he's got some injury concerns, hasn't had a full season yet 

    This is true if any team … r.g. Name 4 players in the Chiefs or any other team that are not replaceable. 
     

    I also think that Groot may get there soon. Losing him for the second half hurt

    Have a bad feeling about this one. Cannot go 0-2 in the Div...

     

    Last year the Bills had a losing close games issue, I get the feeling this season they will have a losing division games issue.

    The problem is you “feel” too much and don’t look at facts. The Jets are middle of the road across the board and have a very weak QB. Could the Bills lose .. sure KC lost to the Colts .. it can happen. Is it likely to happen? No .. no it is not

    Maybe I'm off, but when I look at the grades, I don't look at them individually.  I only look at them to compare. So 47.2 means nothing individually,  but if you compare 2 players at the same position and one is at 70 and the other at 50, it does give an idea of who played better. 🤔

    The problem is as pointed out in the article the grade is made without the context of knowing what the players assignment was on the various plays. If the grader guesses the assignment correctly the scoring would be fine, but in many cases they are in fact just guessing so comparing grades would not work

  8. Details how Raiders players moved away from caring about these site’s grades when they realized it didn’t align with how their coaches were grading them based on the analytics site not understanding what their actual responsibilities were on a given play.

    I know this has been debated back and forth (especially given Lewan’s contention that players pay to increase their ratings, but the part about the graders not really understanding the individual’s responsibilities on a given play hit home to me.

    are josh and pat not also doing #1?

    Actually no .. Josh averages $43 million per year over 6 years; Pat is $45 million per year over 10 years. In several years they will both be huge bargains. 
     

    Rodgers is $50 million per year for 3 years. One can do a lot with an extra $5 -$7 million in cap to work with.

  10. Aaron is indicating that his teammates are making too many mistakes and those that are should be benched for others. 
     

    1) if he didn’t monopolize their salary cap .. perhaps they could have a more talented roster perhaps who made less mistakes.

     

    2) He comes off as a “you guys” person .. hard to want to give all you have for a guy like that. In contrast Pat and Josh are more “us guys”.

     

    3) this should be an internal discussion. Now the team will be scrutinized to determine if people can figure out who Aaron is talking about. A total needless distraction.

     

    4) Aaron has been bad this year .. look in the mirror first.

    So happy we have Josh

  11. I expect they will be favored in all remaining games except maybe Cindy.

     

    Assuming they lose no more games

    - nothing HF is theirs

     

    assuming they lose 1 game

    - the Jets, Cindy, and the Chargers need to lose 1 game

     

    assuming they lose 2 games ( my expectation)

    - Jets, Bengals, and Chargers would have to lose 2 games ( obviously depends on head to head matchup … this is worst case), the Dolphins, Pats, Colts, Titans, Chiefs would have to lose 1 game. 


    11 loses throughout the season across those teams seems inevitable... it is encouraging how good their odds are currently

    Not your normal football guy stuff…


    Coy Wire asked Devin what story he could tell about Josh that shows why he is a special teammate ““After the game… He gave me a big hug… and told me… ‘I love you more than you know.’ As guys, we don’t usually say that to each other…. That’s real love.” Devin Singletary on Josh Allen after ⁦

    @BuffaloBills victory over #Chiefs.

    I know the price looks like a lot, but is it really more than the Bills 1st and Moss?   I'd have been a happy camper to have CMC for that.

     

    Didn't it take a 4th for the Bills to move up 3-4 spots in the first.  San Fran will have a low 2nd and low 3rd.  It seems like all those picks combined might equal the Bills 1st.

     

     

    It is also the $ if by getting a CMC we can’t keep a Poyer or a Gabe Davis .. that has to be taken into account

  14. I used to start thinking about the draft many years during the drought when it was clear we were yet again not making the playoffs.  Now I focus on the upcoming games and playoff positioning. It is a great time to be a Bills fan. 
     

    BTW no issue with you looking ahead. That is your thing and that is cool too.

    LOL at fish fans...

     

     

    (14) Ron Canniff on Twitter: "Bills fans do realize Miami has Josh Allen figured out right. And they’re gonna lose again on December 18th." / Twitter

    Yeah they limited him to 400 yds passing and 47 yards rushing while his teammates dropped like flies from the heat. I wonder how they propose making our sideline so hot in Buffalo?
