  1. I was actually thinking that this is one of the worst things about this loss. 😀 This would have lived in infamy, but instead will be reduced to a footnote.
  2. Those are great clips with a good break down and well worth a watch. Thanks! The Bills do appear to be much more aggressive/downhill against running plays. I'm not sure if that is just because of the improved D line play or if there has been a change of philosophy. Edmonds making RB tackles in the backfield/close to the line versus 7 yards downfield really changes things.
  3. A team full of killers...I say it all the time - culture is a talent multiplier. You can't win without talent, but culture can multiply the talent you have. A leader in every room holding teammates accountable, working hard all year, comradery, putting in the extra time because you want to...it is so much easier to put in the extra work. OTOH, most of us have been in workplaces where the culture was negative - that always made it much harder for me - no matter my good intentions. This attitude will go a long way to keeping them focused even though they are blowing teams out by double digits all the time.
  4. Miami Mammals Murdered Mercilessly Making Many Merry To help Tua Dolphins traded for Tyreek Their Hill to die on
  5. Josh Allen can set ants on fire with a magnifying glass.....at night. Josh Allen once had an arm wrestling contest with superman. The loser had to wear his underwear on the outside for the rest of his life.
  6. Every fanbase wants to believe that they truly are the best fanbase or that they are special in some way... But, dang it, we are. We actually have some objective proof, some things that we can point to...the video didn't even bring up how we cheered for Norwood at the rally after SB25 (that doesn't happen in Boston). It is perfect that our nickname is Bills Mafia because we are La Famiglia.
  7. Careful. Never say 17-0. If you are going to go that route, say 20-0.
  8. I've not watched Kupp enough to honestly rate him, so it is hard for me to agree or disagree, but I can say this: Diggs has a remarkable ability to gain separation. He runs amazing routes, has great hands, great body control, good speed, and great short area quickness. He's the best WR Buffalo has had since Reed. He may be better than Reed. In the 90s we had much less access to camera work where you could see individual routes so it is hard to tell. I was a huge fan of Moulds - a man among boys - so (for me) that is saying a lot.
  9. I don't like the look of those teenagers...get off my lawn! As I get older I am beginning to feel like my future could be Gran Torino.
  10. Because it is true. We had beat the Giants earlier in the year, on the road, without Kelly. We had just obliterated the Raiders. The offense was the best it ever was. We only got 19 minutes of possession because the Giants knew we were better than them and they wanted to shorten the game. Belicheat's defense won the game for them because the Giants got stops. Not counting a kneel down at the end of the 1st half, the Bills had 10 drives. - 1 FG - 1 FG Miss - 2 TD - 6 punts For comparison, I just looked it up. In the previous playoff games, we punted 1 time in scoring 44 points against Miami and then we punted 2 times in scoring 51 points against the Raiders after the game was already essentially over. 3 total punts and only 1 first team punt in the playoffs before the SB.
  11. While this is all true...drafting a generational QB in the 6th round will boost a coach and Belicheck is sub 500 without Tom...it shouldn't denigrate Belicheat as a coach. - His plan/defense won SB25 for the Giants. - His Browns won a playoff game (it was almost 30 years before that happened again) - He beat the Bills in that stupid wind game. The Pats had no business doing that. - He got the Pats to the playoffs with a rookie Mac Jones. He's a cheater and he was helped by Tommy, but he is still a great coach. Thank God he is a terrible GM (and I mean that literally).
  12. I agree. It is normal churn and almost all teams have it. However, the real question is this: Did we get better with our churn or worse? For me the answer to that question is Levi Wallace. I expected him to get a fairly fat contract as a starting corner. When he only got $4M/year, I was taken aback. We made a $3M gamble on a TE coming off an injury. If we wanted Wallace to be our CB2, we would have signed him at that price. That signaled loud and clear that the Bills thought that position was a problem and that they wanted to get better there. When he struggled to win the starting job in Pitt, I think that thought was confirmed. Add to that thought that both the DL and OL have gotten better this year (IMHO) and I think we didn't just get better, we got much better in the churn. Side note - it is fun to have a chance to use the word churn. I kept thinking of Amos Burton as I typed this. Second side note - I do fully expect our defensive stats to be worse this year (because of schedule) even though the defense is better.
  13. When you are a hammer, everything looks like a nail. I usually find it mildly amusing which makes up for any misses. Hey, its not all going to be gold.
  14. Thanks so much for posting this video this morning. I desperately needed real football content to "cleanse the pallet". Here is my hot take. Beach Chair might be our most important off-season addition. The offensive line looks reborn. Countless times we lost yardage or had minimal gain running against light boxes last year.
