Joe B: 7 Observations from Buffalo Bills vs. Baltimore Ravens (9/9/18)

 

WKBW) - In 2017, the Buffalo Bills came through and shocked the NFL world and their fan base by piecing together enough wins to sneak into the playoffs for the first time, erasing a 17-season playoff drought. The goodwill the organization and the current regime established by doing just that is one that led to a belief in the offseason in what they were doing.
 
It didn't take long, but the Bills are already feeling that faith challenged from the fan base -- and that's probably what a 47-3 loss in Week One of the season should do. The Bills lost to the Baltimore Ravens in a way where it seemed like they didn't even show up in most phases of the game.
 
What can we learn from the game? Where do they go from here? Seven observations from the Bills' loss to the Ravens:
 
1) Peterman was dreadful
2) Tough to evaluate Allen
3) What will the Bills do in Week Two at QB?
4) Tremaine Edmunds takes a massive step forward
5) The defensive line was nowhere to be found
6) Benjamin gave Peterman a run for his money, and not in a good way
7) Gaines is an issue
 
Bills MVP: LB Tremaine Edmunds
- Seven total tackles, a sack, a pass broken up, and a forced fumble. The most important part? He looked like he unhinged from overthinking, which is as essential a sign as you'll find from the young linebacker.
 
Bills LVP: WR Kelvin Benjamin
- His effort in the contest was inexcusable and for him to supplant Peterman for these honors is really saying something.
 
Up Next: The Bills are home against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday, September 16 at 1:00 pm.

more than once he made this decision and had to bench him. 

Why the Hell not? Vlad is beyond bad. Let Teller play and learn. We're going nowhere this year, let's let the kids have the sandbox.

Anyone see the catch Robinson just made?  Bears vs Packers.  Who do we have that makes catches like that?  We need that.

Trade a 4th or 5th for RG3, just it can seem we have a competent back up. Release Pistol and  start Allen.

I was there in the rain. Benjamin is not a #1. He drops every contested ball and just seems to not make the effort to get to the ball. He is a #3 slot guy on other teams.

 

I agree and why Don't our receivers get any separation at all. ?

Silver lining:  At least our 31st ranked passing attack and QB situation couldn't get any worse, amirite!

This is exactly why we should have kept McCarron and why the decision is already starting to haunt us, we now have a seemingly worthless QB in Peterman and a rookie that doesn't know the offense as well as he could and barely has any NFL experience. If Allen starts then what if he gets hurt and is done for the season, if he suffers an injury similar to Wentz then how would you go about developing him? I don't think Allen lasts too long behind this O-Line.

 

I think we need to sign a free agent QB and let Josh come in when the games have already been already lost in the 3rd and 4th quarter, that's how he's going to get his reps, not by starting, unless you want to essentially throw him to the wolves and end up 2-14 with a potentially seriously injured rookie QB. I don't think the 5th round pick for McCarron was worth it, in hindsight.

Just an opinion , I don't think it matters which  QB they start next week he is going to get killed if the line  and receivers play like they did today.

Logan Thomas's the only one i saw getting open.

And when Logan's in at QB, then no one will be open.

McCarron would have been worse , He would have been sacked at least twice as much as the other QBs were.

I was thinking the same thing when I saw this.  Our receiving corps should be ashamed of their performance today.  Kelvin Benjamin #1 WR....what a joke.

Because of that one little bit of good feeling last season, when the red headed stepchild threw a miracle to put the Bills... finally into the Playoffs, I decided to be kind yesterday, when I put my prediction in for the season. Forget all the buffoonery of the millennium, all the eedgit HCs and their decisions, all the sub standard, over the hill GMs, both the out of touch owners and finally turn a blind eye to the talentless players!

 

So, I generously selected in that little pool a 5-11 record, thinking they can beat the Jets twice, the Fish at Home and 2 other stiffs like the Colts and Tennessee or the Bears.

 

Today though, the Bills exposed themselves to the rest of the NFL planet. THEY are the profound stiffs, so absolutely devoid of talent, I'm not sure they can beat anybody. For God sakes, they are neck and neck with the Brownies!

 

Think of that putrid Offence! Shady might be the only player you would charitably rank as 10-20th best RB. The Receivers... all of them? Holy crap, they might be decent in the Sunday Night Beer League. None is remotely NFL calibre- ranking 75-100th. perhaps.

 

The OLine is a tire fire and the QB? He says he can get better! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Dude, I hope so. That was possibly the worst performance in Bills history! 

 

Better doesn't mean NFL!

 

What a train wreck. Get ready for 2019. This season is done.

 

The real fear for all of us is what a woeful mess the new GM has already made, with so very few correct decisions and building blocks to work with!

 

How can this org be so impossibly inept... going on the equivalent of a fan forever?

Let's not forget this team gave Ole Dirty B a mental breakdown halfway through the first quarter.

Ya thought Whaley was bad. I feel like Beane is getting paid by Belicheck to make sure we suck.

Unbelievably I still feel it’s 50/50 odds at least that Peterman starts week 2 and the thought makes me physically ill.

Unfortunately I agree with you on both points.
