God I hate the "putting each through burning tables" thing. What are Bills fans, a bunch of WWE loving 8th graders circa 1998? 

Foolishness.

Show up, be loud, represent the team with pride, but for the love of God....quit putting each other through flaming tables.

Lol, seems like it's starting to become the "norm" for some Bills fans. But yeah, a little over the top for me as well.

With almost no deep threats, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Hyde shadow Engram or at least support.  

 

I see a lot of underneath zones on the corner to cover Barkley.  

 

Hyde on Engram would be good.  

 

Still not sure even Milano on Barkely is sufficient.  Perhpas Milano/Poyer combo?  

 

Looking forward to it.  We have a great D.  They should be up to the task.  But Barkley is a beast.  He will get his, but we can't let him beat us.

Beasley and Brown all day???   Some Singletary to control the clock?  Hopefully Foster is back!

This is a great game to play a lot of man coverage.  The only exception to that rule will be how they handle Saquon...probably need to bracket him with a LB and a DB walked down into the box (Poyer or Neal).  If you're playing nickel, and you're using Poyer/Neal to bracket Barkley, that means you're manned up everywhere else with a free blitzer on every play; you should be able to force Eli into turnovers a few times.

 

Now, that'll all change dramatically if Jones enters the game.  In that case, I'm going to go heavy on Cover-3 and mix up my pressures to keep him guessing. If Jones can function in a timing approach then he can flourish; if you force him to hold the ball, he'll make mistakes.

I hope Milano and edmunds eat their wheaties cause Barkley and engram are about as tough a matchup as they’ll get this season. 

 

PMT put it best today. It was one of those games where if you look at the stat line, you think, "wow, they look pretty good."  But, if you watched, you know they are a train wreck.

Be interesting to see how they coach the run game next week.  The power combo approach was working really well when they ran it, but the Giants did an admirable job of stuffing Dallas' run game when asked to yesterday.

 

I would anticipate a similar approach next week: quick-hitters to get the QB comfortable early and get the front-7 tired; come back in the 2nd half with pin/pull combo calls that move the big dudes up front and create space for a one-cutter like Devin to gash 'em.

love the idea of a LB/DB bracket.  I'd use Poyer, I think he's the better run stopper of the two (Poyer or Neal).

Hopefully they will practice tackling all week to get ready for Barkley. 

If they don’t know how to tackle by now...

Yeah, the bonus on walking Poyer down low is that he fits well against the run (though we're probably sacrificing a bit of his ability to key quickly by walking him down).  The other side of the coin is that using Neal in that role (even if it's half the time or less) allows you to disguise the look a bit better. Since Neal plays the slot on a regular basis, you're not telegraphing that he's actually functioning as a big-nickel box safety instead of a slot corner.

 

In reality, McDermott & Co. are probably way ahead of me and will do both plus some other approaches to limit how badly he can hurt you out of the backfield.

Kinda nice that we're going back to the same stadium for our second road game - good for all the rooks and others that are new to our team to have two games in a row, in the same place.  They'll know the routine, the stadium set-up, the locker room, etc.  Not sure it'll really help, but it sure can't hurt! :beer:

Dabol needs to employ another chapter from the Patriots playbook--be aggressive at the get go, get up on them and make Eli have to throw (taking away the running game)...

For sure man...at this point, for the younger guys, any semblance of normalcy or routine is going to help.

Giants D looked pitiful against Dallas. I see us putting up at least 25, which should be enough to win with our D. Bills 27-17.

The NFL Network reported that the Giants defense registered only one quarterback pressure against the Cowboys this week.

Back 2 Back games at Metlife. Interesting scenario for Buffalo

After just Week 2, it’s conceivable the 2 residents of that stadium could be a combined 0-4 by next Tuesday morning.

🤣BWAHAHAHAHAHA!

More of this next week please :lol:

 

 

It may have been my imagination or wishful thinking, but based on when the crowd got loud or quiet, I felt the Bills had as much if not more crowd cooperation than the Jets.  Loud when the Jets were on offense, quiet when the Bills were on offense.

weirdly enough....the Jets and Giants use two different visitors locker rooms, so the Bills actually WON'T be in the same visitors locker room. I have no explanation as to why. 

 

I knew the Jets and Giants each had their own "home" locker rooms, but you're saying they have their own visitors' rooms as well?  Seems like a waste...

Giants defense got embarrassed in Dallas so they'll be motivated to be much better in their home opener.  Eli looked decent against the Cowboys and Barkley is the best back in the league.  I see this being another close game.

Ok, so one of the things we do fantastically well here on TSW is overreact to a given week's result -- good or bad.  I'm going to try and buck that trend here, because as others have noted the Giants' offense has some formidable weapons.  I'm confident McD will devise a scheme to limit big plays but it will absolutely be incumbent upon the Bills to score points on offense -- I think they'll need at least 24 -- and to limit the turnovers that plagued them this week.  Despite the Giants' poor showing in Dallas they will be motivated to win at home and even their record.  I believe they'll learn from their mistakes in Dallas and feed Barkley more.  They also know they got no pass rush to speak of in Dallas and will probably start bringing extra bodies to try and pressure the inexperienced Allen.  I'd like to see the screen game if that happens.

 

It's a little surprising to me that the Bills have opened as favorites, and I would expect the line to move closer to a pick'em throughout the week.  It's funny, I think I was more confident the Bills would beat the Jets than I am about this week's game.

I never buy that type of stuff.

 

This is the NFL. If they weren't motivated to play against a divisional opponent that beat them 4 consecutive times leading up to the game, what are they doing in the NFL?

 

Now, I do agree that it should be another close game, but the bold statement just doesn't make much sense to me.

The stands looked pretty empty when they showed it. Lots of empty seats all over the place.
