  1. Not even a close race. 
    Singletary needs to get the Christian McCaffery treatment from a few years back with the Panthers. 
    he doesn’t come off the field unless he needs a breather or is injured. 
     

    I'm not in any way saying Singletary is close to the back CMac is but he IS the perfect back for Dorsey, Allen and this offense.

  2. Kelly is too low on your list but I agree with everyone else. Although it pains me to agree with the OJ pick but I know we have to separate the man from the player. 
    might have Kelly at 4 behind Bruce, JA17 and Thurm. 
     

    *disclaimer - JA could lose his place on the list with a Cam Newton-like fall in play or a Andrew Luck-like early retirement. 

  3. As we’ve discussed in the past… the ESPN QBR system is wildly flawed. 
    how in the world is Jalen Hurts’ a 65 for his 60%, 155yds, 6yds pa, 2td game and Josh is a 60 with 67%, 329yds, 8yds pa, 3td game? 
    the “fumble” is the only semi-reasonable answer I can find and even that seems unreasonable. 
    Utterly ridiculous ratings system that sports pontificators will use at the end of the season to show Hurts is somehow more deserving of MVP votes.

    I said it about 3 times today, at least. Saw Shakir return the punt and thought he was done... Puzzled afterwards. Tells you how much they trust our guys if anything 

    Shakir IS the punt returner. 
    since crowder was hurt. 
    mcK has not been the punt returner at all this season.

    I think this week against a relatively poor Steelers squad will be the week that we go to a more balanced offensive scheme. Expect lots more runs and throws to the RBs and TEs. Doubtful the game plan will be to air it out deep much this week. 

    Based on what information do you come to this conclusion? This team plays one way and they don’t change their game plan based on the perceived “weakness” of an upcoming opponent. That’s what great teams do. They impose their will on their opponent. They are going to throw 30+ times every game. Hell, they threw 30 times in 50mph winds last year against the Pats.

     

    the Steelers are not a walkover opponent. Not as long as Mike Tonkin is their coach. They’ve been in every game this season and they beat the AFC Super Bowl team from last season. 
     

    the Bills will come out slinging it around like they always do hoping to be able to trot Keenum out in the 4th quarter if everything goes perfectly.

    The Bills are not championship caliber yet.  They are still just playoff caliber.  They need to play all 4 quarters.  The Chiefs game in 2 weeks will tell us a ton about the Bills.  Teams like the Chiefs are not teams like the Ravens. Teams like the Ravens disappear late. Teams like the Chiefs will beat you if you don't play a complete game.  We will know all we need to know about the Bills in 2 weeks.  Are they going to continue being a playoff caliber team or are they going to make the jump to championship caliber.  The talent is there.  Not sure the coaching is. 

    Using the Chiefs regular season game this year as “championship-quality” barometer is as pointless as using last year’s regular season Chiefs game. The Bills go to Arrowhead and whoop tail and for what…? 
    it’s a one week at a time league. It’s not just cliche when McD, Allen, Diggs, and Miller say that over and over. The key is to win enough regular season games to secure the number 1 seed. One single regular season win or loss is never a true indication of “championship quality.”

    Let's settle down and dispense with the overreactions. Can't win close games, Dorsey is worse than Daboll, McDermott doesn't know when to challenge, Beane doesn't address the offense.

     

    Give me a break. We played a game with half our starters against a good team with a historically bad officiating crew on their side in brutal conditions. And this game STILL wasn't even close in terms of quality of play. 

     

    Give me this matchup in the playoffs PLEASE. Easy win and on to the next one.

    Excellent take.

    I am a member of a general NFL forum and they have told me for the better part of a year now that McDermott holds our roster back. I’ve brushed off these comments for some time, but i’m starting to see their point.

     

    - 0 and 7 in one score games the last two seasons

     

    - Challenging a clear Titans catch last week was indefensible

     

    - Not challenging a potential Gabe Davis TD this week was indefensible 

     

    - Playing shallow coverage on 3rd and 22, allowing TWO seperate receivers to get open deep, is indefensible

     

    - Not having your WR’s ready to go down with enough time to spike the ball

     

    - Don’t even get me started on 13 seconds

     

    - Our inability to win short yardage situations for several years is indefensible.

     

    - We as a team seem to have removed QB sneak from the play book. We never run it. Ever. See this tweet for how I feel about that. Hard to think that’s not a directive from the top, seeing that two separate OC’s refuse to call it.

     

     

    I don’t even have to read past the title to know this is absolute trash. Like worse-than-Jalen-Ramsey-calling-Josh-Allen-trash…. trash.

    This is such a total and utter recency bias take. 
    this is screen-shot worthy so the whole world can remind you of this trash take in February when you are making your plans to attend the parade. 
    do us all a favor and stay home that day. 
     

    thanks!

  9. I like Colin everyday. Good show. He’s been high on the Bills and JA17 for a while now. 
    he gets a bad rap for some crazy takes but he’s an entertainer who gets paid to find a new way of framing things. 
    He’s no where near as annoying as Stephen A, Skip, or Nick Wrong!

    “I thought I threw the ball away,” Allen said. “He made an unbelievable play, but I got hit and was going back to the huddle for what I think was third down, and everybody was celebrating. I had no idea what was going on.

     

    “Still, when I sat down (on the bench) I go, ‘What happened?’ Nobody could tell me an explanation.”

     

    Once Allen saw a replay on the video scoreboard, he said his reaction was “Holy crap. I did not mean for that to happen.”

    Thanks Gugny. I’m not sure how a thread that started out as an appreciation post could have possibly turned into a semi-controversial debate but… I guess that’s just the way it is (as Hornsby would say).

     

    at the end of the day I was trying to appreciate the humility and honesty of a super star athlete in a day and age where super star athletes are often aloof, arrogant, and unrelatable. 
     

    for those trying to turn it into something more than that… I have nothing for you except… Go Bills!

    I like both of these guys in terms of leadership, moxie and athleticism, but they are too much of a liability in the passing game.   Miami and Philly need to draft QBs 

    Add Mac Jones to this list and you have a triumvirate of excellent Alabama QBs who are average-at-best NFL QBs.

    I know what he said

    Oh… gotcha. So you actually were saying that you know better than Josh what Josh was intending to do. I guess I just couldn’t fathom that kind of arrogance till this very moment. 
    well, I guess there isn’t any further need for actual intelligent discussion here since you have already informed us of your x-men-mind-reading abilities. 
    perhaps, however, you should leave your contact info here and hope someone from the front office reads this thread. I’d say you could be an unbelievably valuable asset to the Bills for this playoff run.

    Question---on Micah's long punt return, it looked like he was going to just let it bounce.   It seemed from the angle of live TV that Micah thought it hit a Bills player, then decided to field it......or, did Micah just see an opening in coverage?    

    I am almost sure it hit the heel of a Bills player and bounced straight to Hyde. 
    As another thread has already stated… all the bounces went Buffalo’s way last night.

  14. During his press conference, Allen was asked about the first TD to Knox and after his typical, boyish sarcasm he straight up admitted he was trying to throw the ball away and didn’t even know why the crowd was cheering so loud until a few moments after the play. 
    A follow up question was something like, “when that happened did you know it was going to be a special night” and without hesitation Josh said “oh yeah!” with a huge grin on his face. 
     

    I just want to say how refreshing it is to see every Bills player, even our biggest star, live out the “Humble & Hungry” mantra of our HC. I really feel like the majority of QBs in this league would have had too much pride to admit they were throwing that ball away. 
     

    Go Bills!

    Josh is equal/better talent than 90s. I find his personality refreshingly Firebough, junior collegey. in this world, we need more of this. 


    Nobody had to convince him to BUF either. Love this kid. 

    This is the full truth summed up. When JA17 says “Go Bills” it is for real. And it started from the beginning of his tenure. His little smirk when he reminded the press his 2nd year that the Bills were NY’s ONLY team.  He is where he is supposed to be.
