he's out of the boot and running on a treadmill now.  I think I saw 1-3 weeks out, but not back for this game.  

 

Ross III is good.  The offense is decently balanced (on paper), but whatever San Fran did to them we need to replicate.  Hopefully the DL can force Dalton into some bad throws.  

Yeah, I am super impressed with how Ross has stepped it up so far this year. They have two legit WR options even without Green in Boyd and Ross.

They are better than their record. Great d line , have better WR than the Giants even with Green out. 

 

Not goingto be an easy game

 

this.  They have a lot more offensive talent than the Giants.  We can't sell-out to stop the run.  The Giants had a TE as their WR#1 last week, generally a recipe for disaster.  The bengals have 2 legit WR's, one TE, and a good RB.   We can stop them.  I think the key is pressure on Dalton.  We get up by 14 or so I'll feel better, but we did that last week and let the Giants back in it.  Need to play all 60 min this week.

Bengals make me nervous  Buffalo seems to bring out the best in Andy Dalton and AJ Green always seems to shred us.  On the flipside their defense looks like trash

I don't fear their defense. total defense (giving up 62 points-2 games) 25th  pass 16th  rush  30th 

 

 bills total defense 6th pass 5th rush 10th

 

total offense 9th 11th pass 18th 2nd  rush 9th 32nd

 

not a game I would guarantee but one I am not worried about and one they should win. better defense and the home field advantage.

 

when we get to the games against the pats**, dallas, baltimore, philly or even the titans. those will be the games I would be a little more nervous about, the contenders of the league.

 

I'm just hoping to see the bills play well and win some of those games against the contenders. these two past wins are great for the w/l column but neither team was going to contend for the playoffs this season.

No, but I am getting old, so it's getting difficult to remember all of the many, many TBDisms....

Roger that!

 

Of course, the flip side to the youthful inexperience is that I can easily pull out the names of half a dozen impact starters or key contributors in years 1-3 on their contracts (Allen, Singletary, Dawkins, Oliver, Milano, Edmunds, White, Wallace, Neal) and the fact that we still have $25 million in cap space also speaks very well for the potential longevity of the team as a contender as well!

 

Dang, optimism is fun.

Their defense seems to be pretty bad but is our offense good enough to produce consistently? Allen is very, very young.

 

Can our defense shut out their offense? I wonder. 

 

This is is not an easy win.

 

Bills win in a nail biter.

I agree.  Don't really follow them but Andy Dalton is completing for a lot of yards.  Have to hope our "D" can control that.  They're 0-2, but those are the type games you have to be concerned about.

Yes, along with all the other types of games

The Bills are #4 in the AFC in the Power Rankings.  After the Chiefs beat up on the Ravens and if the Bills take care of business, the Bills will be the #3 team in the AFC taking on the #1 team in the AFC in Orchard Park.  Been a long time since a game like that played in Orchard Park.

6 seems high to me- I expect a win but I think 17-14 is more likely- if they whoop them I will be real excited for week 4

They did just get beat 41-17 by the 49er’s who are not exactly an offensive powerhouse. I would take the Bills WR’s and RB’s (with Singletary) over the 49’ers group. I would take the Bills defense at LB and secondary over the 49ers. QB is a toss up. I am biased so I would take Allen. But at worst, they are even.

I believe the home opener is when the Bills offense will open the playbook and we start to see more deep shots to Brown, Jones and Foster.

Check the cap numbers next season.

 

Giggity.

Good news:
Trey Hopkins is still the #1 C in the league at 76.3 (73.3 pass, 77.5 run)
John Miller has really boosted his ranking. He's now 70.5 (79.1 pass, 61.5 run)
Bobby Hart is still above 60. He's at 61.6 (62.0 pass, 56.8 run)

Bad news:
Michael Jordan down to 43.4 (52.4 pass, 39.1 run)
Andre Smith down to 53.3 (60.4 pass, 49.0 run)

The Missed Opportunity at Dominance

Coming out of the half with a 21-7 lead, the Bills had the opportunity to put the Giants away early after receiving the ball at the start of the third quarter. The stage was set and virtually the only thing missing was the thundering voice from Mortal Kombat compelling the Bills to ‘FINISH HIM’.

 

The ghosts of Bills’ Sundays past, where wins within their grasp slowly slip through fingers like a handful of sand, slowly began to creep in fans’ psyches as the first three possessions of the second half consisted of no more than four plays or 17 yards. Corey Bojorquez was repeatedly asked to keep the Giants from having a short field, an ask that most fans were hoping would be the responsibility of someone else despite Bojorquez rising to the occasion.

 

The stunted offensive production when the Bills had the opportunity to put their foot on the throats of the Giants and put them away early in the 2nd half takes the cherry off the top of this win. Rather than create distance from their opponent, the Giants eventually took advantage of their second-half opportunities by narrowing the lead to seven before ultimately succumbing to several penalties that suffocated their comeback aspirations.

McDermott doesn't seem to be the kind of guy that let's his players think anything is an easy win.

I don't know if it's out of fear, sportsmanship or not wanting to reveal plays for upcoming opponents, but this whole "let's take our foot off the gas" second half offense will bite the Bills in this game.  The Bengals have absolutely nothing to lose this year.  Nobody expects them to do anything.   That makes them a worthy opponent for all four quarters.  

 

No more half measures, Walter.

Agree that we need to get better at "finishing teams off", and hopefully that is the next piece that comes together for this team, but spare me the "several penalties suffocated their comeback" noise...   Josh Allen putting their defender on spin cycle and throwing a dart to John Brown is what ended their comeback chances.

Mrs10 and I are celebrating an anniversary this week, so we’re making a weekend of the home opener. Hotel in Niagara Falls the night before, casino, steak dinner, yada yada, then head to OP bright and early in the AM. 

 

I definitely married the right girl.
