Anyone able to diagnose what was supposed to happen?  @Buffalo716?

 

 

Well I know for one thing the RB isn't supposed to trip him

Or they are going against a pretty damn good D line

Or the starting O-line isn't really the starting O-line.

Hm. I guess I stand corrected- I thought Sweeney was a better blocker. 

 

Do we think Kroft is a lock? I don't see an odd man out and 5 TE's seem's heavy, especially if we keep DiMarco.

 

Sweeney is a rookie who hasn't shown he can block for toffee in the regular NFL season yet.

 

Smith can flatten the he** out of anyone, anywhere.

I don't think it's a coincidence that after Morse got injured and they started playing mix and match that the line has been struggling.

It is not coincidence:

1) Morse went out

2) OL started struggling

3) Observers started commenting stuff like "Josh Allen's worst day of practice to date" "Allen didn't look good today" with the more astute adding "Allen faced strong pressure on more than 50% of his dropbacks"

Kroft is definitely a lock. They gave him too much money. Sweeney is a pretty good blocker, yes. He's a pretty good receiver and runs pretty good routes. He actually has great hands (so not just pretty good at everything). He's just not all that fast or agile or elusive. Good but not standout. Smith doesn't even run patterns.

Josh. The only reason I'm still sitting here is to watch you throw the ball out of the stadium...

That whole thing with this Will Lucas kid sponsored by "Stone's Buddies" was just TCTL (too cute to live). 

 

Nice to see the players just really buying in to give that kid a special experience including everyone clustering around him after his "touchdown" jumping up and down

 

 

I wonder if Jerry Sullivan will hammer Beane so another injured player signing?

That's a good point... If it is fourth down, it's probably a better outcome than a punt with how our punters have been... 

 

 

Three go routes looks to me like a fourth and long situation, end of half type stuff. Basically meaningless imo

What the heck he was out of bounds and what WR was he even aiming at.

See, Mr. 52% can't even stay in bounds.  And his read progression was crap, slow eyes obviously.  Ugh, cut him.

And to make matters worse he didn't even come close to throwing it out of the stadium.

Maybe.  They let RayRay marinate a year on PS and it's reported he looks much improved.

No reason they won't try that again.

McCloud overall looked good tonight.  Seems the reports where he is locking down the 6th spots are accurate.

It's a really bad angle but it looks like a TE pulling or tackle?

 

The Patriots are notorious for pulling linesman on pass plays and this is what it looks like from 25 yards to me

 

He just ran into Allen

And maybe someone is supposed to block the defender who charged straight up the middle.

Will never lose the bad accuracy label with throws like that...

After a week of T.C.  I think the offense is farther along than I expected.  The Oline is Dawkins, Spain, Morse, open, Ford or Nyske.  The best 5 move Ford to LG play Nyske at RT have Waddle be the swing tackle.  I think they will be stubborn because of Fords potential at RT and keep him there.

Tommy Sweeney is making this team. His name just fits in the blue collar feel of the team... Plus, we know he's kneecapped someone for the Irish Mob before...

 

Do tell ...

That’s the SAME int he threw 2 or 3 times last year. It’s also the SAME pass he threw 3 long completions last year as well. (2 to Ivory, 1 to McCoy). SMH. I can live with those as long as he improves on other area in the passing game.

Yea.

 

He had a few of those WTF was that INTs. Just really bone head INTs trying to make a ridiculous play that he's been attempting since his days at Wyoming and we saw it continue last year.

Are you talking about a few such INTs last year?  Or last night?
