#2 Points Allowed

Recommended Posts

top 3 in points allowed but bottom 5 in points scored

 

it's the reason this team hasn't been successful in decades. inept offenses have always been our problem and this year is no different. Dabboll needs to change the gameplan after the bye week. run the ball more and limit Allen's passing so he stops throwing mediocre interceptions 

The problem with Bills offenses over the years hasn’t been their running game, though. They’ve lacked a modern NFL passing offense for years. That won’t be solved by running the ball more and limiting Allen. In the Bills defense, Daboll doesn’t seem like he wants to play 1970’s football. They need to clean up their execution on offense, not start playing small ball.

I wanted to look it up but when have the last time the Bills has better than a bottom third passing attack? Maybe Fitz.  Our standards for good qb are so low.

Need playmakers for that to happen... Bills don't have enough at the moment. That 1970's style football is just how McDermott likes it.

If the Bills can get into the post season, which they should, this team could make a run. 

 

If they can spend the next 3-4 games developing an explosive running game with Singletary, and learn to be more efficient throwing deep off play action, an explosive offense teamed with an elite defense could do serious damage in the playoffs.

I watch the Herd Hierarchy on youtube every week. He actually dropped us two spots. We were at #7 last week. I think that is more to do with other teams he wanted to move up though (San Fran have shot up and Seattle) rather than moving the Bills down. I think he still has the Rams above us. That is one I would question. They have no run game and their defense is really not performing at all. Marcus Peters gets exposed more than your local neighbourhood flasher. 

 

It is less about running up the score and more about beating them by a minimum of two touchdowns. The sort of games where as a fan by the start of the 4th Qrtr you are thinking "unless something strange happens here this game is done". 

The Bills want to keep the fans in the stadium for the full game and buy more from the concession stands.  Hence, all games are going down to the wire !!!

Currently,  we are the #2 against points allowed team.   Opponents have scored 70 points against us.  The Patriots have allowed only 39.   

 

If the Punts blocked for TD and the many INTs that were returned for TD or TD scored off the turnover, we will be in the same category as the Patriots...

 

This defense is for REAL

 

And no more points should be scored on them for at least the next two weeks. 😉

‘Yeah, we’re 4-1, BUT... ‘

Never happy, are ya? smh..😒

 

Well, some of these games are hard on my heart, too. 

 

But truthfully, games where one team is blowing the other out are boring, unless you're a diehard fan of the team piling up the points then they're like pinball.  We've had some very good football games to watch.

yup agreed!   The biggest “blowout” so far was the Giants game, and even that one was in question for a while.

I think it also somewhat depends on the blow out if it's just one team being completely terrible it's kind of meh for me but if it's one team just executing really well on both sides of the ball that's still pretty fun to see.

I’ve definitely aged a couple years over these first 5 weeks. In the end the games have been great and I’ve loved the outcome but after all that, I really just wanna kick back, crack one, and maintain a normal heart rate for a couple of hours on gameday.

If this Defense starts generating more takeaways we will be #1 .

 

 

Great point.

 

It really is amazing that our defense has been so stout with relatively few turnovers.  Our defense has only had 8 turnovers so far this year, 5 interceptions and 3 fumble recoveries by my count.  We are averaging 1.6 turnovers per game, which has us currently ranked 12th in the NFL in that category. This defense has been stopping drives the good old fashioned way, with 4th downs.

 

If they could just start getting their hands on some of those deflected passes at the line...

The following is not my take btw, heard it on a podcast this morning and it made sense...

 

Our defense is limiting the opposition to so many 3 and outs, plus our pass defense is so stifling.  This means that our D is facing fewer plays per game, and fewer high risk plays, therefore we have fewer opportunities to make interceptions etc. compared with other defenses.

Judging by only the Bills/Pats game, I'd say the Bills defense is better

...but if we're that stifling on defense, doesn't that mean that the other team's offense HAS TO take more risks as the day goes on?

Many ints returned for Td's? I drink pretty hard during the games, but I dont recall one int the Bills have thrown returned for a td let alone many. But agree otherwise. This d is legit.

 

*disregard top part I see what you mean now.

Didnt CJ Mosley return on in week 1?
