Special Teams as Bad as Last Year

Recommended Posts

Through 4 games special teams hasn’t been so special. For every 2 decent Bojo punts he has 1 shank- yesterday a 19 yarder! 

 

When is the last time we have blocked a punt or FG?

 

Yesterday we gave up a block punt and return for 6.

 

Haushka Isn’t “House Money” lately.

 

This mess of ST’s has to get corrected.

Reminds me of when Ronnie White was special teams coordinator for Wade Phillips back in the day.   Ralph wanted him fired, Wade refused, and so Ralph fired Wade.  We got another rookie ST coach....it didn't turn out well last time.......And, yes, he was outcoached by the Pats on the blocked punt....when the gunner is uncovered, he has to get the man who was supposed to cover him.  Maybe our ST coach wasn't a gunner......and didn't know that to teach our gunners.

During the days of Robb Riddick? He was a special teams and short yardage mensch.

It's been fine through the first three games. Bojo was punting well. Hauschka was making field goals. One bad game for that phase.

 

I thought Roberts played well returning kicks and punts.

I think Andre Roberts is a very good return man.  The Bills need to block a little better on his returns. 

Unfortunately, I think Hauschka might be on the downside of his career.  The good thing is, he’s much more reliable than many kickers in the NFL.

 

Bojorquez is not a good punter.  Never liked him and wanted a replacement for a while.  The coverage is bad as well

Probably good advice.  Let someone else worry about it.  The Bills don’t seem to be.  😁

Bojo needs to be cut ASAP. Go for it every 4th down, he's garbage. Insert other media

‘Insert other media’...leave Brady’s marital aids out of this.

This mess of ST’s has to get corrected.

 

Through four games, Bojo has had one true shank and one blocked punt. 

 

Haushka missed one 60+ yarders, and yesterdays 49er (but only when Jamie Collins was allowed to illegally jump over the line, affecting the kick). 

 

Returns have been substannntially better. Especially now that we finally have Roberts back there. 

 

We have had fewer return penalties than last year. 

 

Stop with the hyperbole. It sounds foolish. We are much better this year.

As bad as the offense played, we were one good punt away from winning that game.

Andre Roberts is decent back there, the only upgrade.

I don't blame Andre. The failure lies completely in the poor blocking from the punt/kickoff teams. Farwell doesn't even have the proper number on each side of Ferguson. Their gunners are smoking our guys.

House money really hurt us yesterday and lack of blocking on punts.

I had to google it to confirm, but his name was Ronnie Jones.  White just didn't sound right. ;)

I don't agree. Please read and review this analysis of our previous games and tell me that the Patriots weren't ready to try that.

BOJO needed to recognize that he wasn't blocked and either call a time-out or make the pass. But, what occurred, made me sick!! PATHETIC!!! That right there is how we get out coached.

Agree to disagree- our ST’s do nothing special at all. If FG’s is the only benchmark then well...

It isn’t hyperbole- Bojo has more than one shank. We had a colossal blunder with the blocked punt and our very own 19 yard punt- but were great.

Their return blocking is atrocious. Punter is generic and won't make it to mid season. Roberts is good.  Trashing Haushka is dumb. Ask my Seattle relatives how much they miss him!

The early 90’s Bills blocked punts and FG’s
