  1. Interesting article on this. You don't blitz Lamar Jackson often and you don't key on his runs. You flood the field with DBS/Speed guys. https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/theres-a-blueprint-for-stopping-lamar-jackson-but-teams-arent-using-it/
  2. Umm, no. Best case scenario is Bills win 6 and take the division as NE fades down the stretch. Any given Sunday. Interesting article about this. https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/theres-a-blueprint-for-stopping-lamar-jackson-but-teams-arent-using-it/
  3. Best record we've had since 1993. That's 26 years. While I would love to see a complete game in all facets, I'll take "win ugly" over and over again. The offense did enough. 24 points is just fine by me. The defense did enough--yes we got gashed by the run, but it was mostly between the 20's. We shut Washington out of the endzone. Josh Allen did enough. 14 of 20 and some well placed balls. People are griping about 3 missed passes. Yeah, I'd like to see an 85% completion rate too, but come on. No dumb passes. No hero ball. Connected when he needed to. Singletary did more than enough on an off day for Gore. I'll take it. Just to reiterate, best season so far in 26 years. 1 loss to a dominant NE. 1 bad loss to Philly, a team that is starting to come to life and has a winning record. I'll take it.
  4. Levi will be fine. Fitzpatrick was dropping dimes into coverage with great touch and accuracy. Even good corners get beaten on occasion when a QB is hot. Wallace has been steady and even spectacular on a few occasions and is getting the job done. Williams going 6 catches for 83 yards, no touchdowns and a fumble is an OK day for a WR. His big gainer (35 yards) was perfectly delivered by Fitz to beat pretty good coverage. Not really a reason to be down on Wallace.
  5. Too many drops, too many penalties. Not a good game for him and it's starting to be trend. An easy TD and his big run are starting to be overshadowed by his mental mistakes.
  6. Bills conservative game plan better than Dolphins best effort. I'll take the win. Bills played it safe and boring. No "Bad Josh" throws.
  7. With Duke replacing Zay and Singletary, Kroft, and the full O line likely being ready to go, will we see a change in this offense? For the first time, they might actually have all the pieces in place.
  8. Congrats to Duke for working and grinding and blocking during preseason and then continuing to do so on the practice squad. Didn't look great in training camp, but when the pads went on and the hitting began, it was game on. There are speed guys, finesse guys and human joysticks. He is none of those. He's a physical guy. A (dirty word on the modern NFL, but I'm gonna say it) "possession" receiver. Props to the scouting staff for finding an off the radar, left field pickup. Now he gets his much delayed chance in the real NFL. Will he succeed? No clue, but I'm an optimist who loves a good underdog story.
  9. Ummm. Goodwin left 3 years ago ......and we have 2 burners in Brown and Foster.
  10. Agreed, they sucked.......but it woulda been nice to see our WR actually try for it. Zay Jones with your arms down and feet on the ground, I'm talking to you!
  11. Just to get this outta the way, with the 3 deep ball INTS all basically uncontested, is it Duke Williams time? Zay Jones does not know how, or even when, to fight for the ball. Gutsy game by the Bills, no reason to hang their heads.
  12. Let's be clear, we are playing a version of the NE offense. Will this help our defense, or is it a wash because NE (basically) knows our offense too?
  13. Oops....in my defense, we sure did not look like a rook.
  14. Nice game by Sweeney. 35 yards and showed really good drive blocking on a Singletary run. Knox: 1 yard. Nothing to report in terms of blocking. Oliver: 2 tackles. I'll take it. Ford: Struggled.
  15. Brown showed me today he is more than just a burner. A very good game for home and hopefully a harbinger of things to come. Last year we did not see a 100 yard WR for the Bills until Robert Foster exploded in the 2nd half of the season. Nice to have this in week one.
