Playing Bills is like having an extra quasi-byeweek

Recommended Posts

Dalvin Cook is sitting this week.  I think we will see this more and more moving forward where teams take advantage of a Bills game on the schedule to rest their starters with any type of an injury.

I don't think so man. That's incredibly careless. You can't risk a bad loss this early because a team sucks, it's the NFL. They could be a muffed punt TD away from losing after a Cousins pick 6

I hope they do approach it that way! Would like to see Allen get a few more TD throws under his belt and make ‘em pay

I don’t think we have enough talent on this roster to push many teams this year.  I doubt there will be more than two weeks in the entire season where the Bills are not at least two score under dogs.

It’s still an NFL roster. We saw the Bills win the 2nd half last week and make it a game. Take away some rookie mistakes by Allen which he will improve on, and instead we could be talking about one of the greatest comebacks ever.

It is like you know the Sabres are good when they don't always face the other team's backup goaltender.

Silly comment.  Unless Minnesota rests all their starters they are going to play to win.  They may look past Buffalo, but all it takes is one bad hit to ruin a season.  This is the NFL, and the men on the field take every team, even the bad ones, seriously.

I sure hope you’re right.   I didn’t think that game was anywhere near as close as the score ended up reflecting.  The Bolts looked like they were playing prevent the entire 4th quarter.

Honestly if they're thinking like the OP is and REALLY make it a bye week. Like bench every good player.. and we win?? I'd be laughing so hard, would NEVER let a Vikings fan live it down. Maybe even troll a message board. And I'd celebrate a coaching decision more stupid than any of ours. It would be pure therapy.

 

I'd honestly be cleansed of all bills, Beane, Peterman bitterness. New slate. A FO dumber than us would be like.. comforting.

We’ve all seen crazy happen before in this league, and I think that a desperate team can also be super dangerous—wouldn’t be surprised to see all sorts of trickery and looks they’ve never shown before just to try to jump on the Vikes early and set a tone for the game. Now if only Leslie could install a bounty system for Cousin’s head...oh wait, wrong coordinator

It's all fun and games until Cousins gets his leg rolled up and the,Vikings have to play Siemian the rest of the way. That kind of thing could cost someone a TON of money...

The Vikings should have wiped the walls with the Packers.  They tied them.  They aren't good enough to be resting starters against anyone.

Your premise is just plain wrong. 

 

Teams purposefully resting starters?

We'll see. We went through a brutal rough patch last year, with alot of the same narrative and finished 4-2 , only losing to NE. Well 4-3 including a super close and competitive road playoff game.

 

I think this team has a ton of heart and they laid down a solid foundation of guys that won't quit and motivate teammates. The 60 mil in dead cap is just killing us right now talent wise

Shoot, letting go of all that bitterness at that rate, 😎you’d even need to find yourself a new user name! I’m more of a blast from the glory past guy myself if you couldn’t tell.

I’d respectfully disagree Shady.

 

I think the fact they’re playing the Bills does factor into the personnel decisions that teams will make this year when they lace up against us.   If you know your star RB or whatever is dinged up, and you are facing the team with the best odds to be drafting first next year, how does that not play into it?

 

If they don’t sit outright, do they only play a few series or a half, more in line with a preseason game? Until the Bills become competitive, teams will take advantage of playing us and they will rest their stars whenever possible.

 

I don’t see where that’s a crazy notion.

Why did the Bills have to close the sewer that was the "Buffalo BIlls Message Board"? Look what has been wrought!

The Bills sucking is highly correlated to the forum sucking. As is the inverse. When we're good we're talking about every player on the roster.. every. Day. It's great.
