I don't know they've got a good chance of doing that, you should probably set the bar a little higher so you can be adequately disappointed.

I'm good. It's about time we get a blowout victory.

No it's not. 

 

They had a nine play 75 yard drive to put themselves in position to tie or win. What part of that drive was proof of the tank? 

 

Or maybe the Redskins allowing that drive is proof of the Redskins tank?

 

Believe what you want, personally I don't think that players and coaches tank.

 

 

 

They had a chance toe tie the game and force OT. Ok they went for the win. Fine. THAT PLAY CALL? Clearly wasnt one you call in that situation. Im not gonna say Drake dropped it on purpose but even had he caught it there was no chance he scored. Say what you want but that play call was a clear "set up for failure" call

What does the coach have to gain from tanking? What does he have to lose from tanking?

I saw on SNF pregame that Flores says Rosen will still be the starting QB going forward....must preserve the tank!


the Dolphins announced it early last week that Rosen would be the starter for the rest of the season. So they aren’t changing anything up. Doesn’t mean Fitz won’t come out of the bullpen from time to time as he did today.  And of course Rosen could get injured as well.

Then why bench Rosen’s butt for Fitzy in the 4th?  Makes no sense.

Destroy his psyche, make him even more mistake-prone and unsure of himself going into an away game against the #3 defense in the league.

 

Again...the only reason that makes sense is that the Dolphins franchise wants to kill him.

Don’t the bills usually mic up one of their own though for each week? I can see how you read my post for wanting to see the titans mic’d up. I meant the titans game. Not the actual titans. Haha

Yeah, honestly, the only way the Bills blow a team out is if they get accidental TDs that McDermott can't avoid (like defensive, special teams, or breakaway runs). Extremely frustrating but true.

 

Typically this has been true.  I wonder if McD is starting to change his tune after the Jets and Bengals games.  The Bills had a good sized lead and let them back in the game in the 3rd quarter.  McD was a lot more aggressive against Tennessee going for a TD earlier in the 4th quarter rather than a FG.  He also seemed a little uncomfortable after the Bengal game when we let them stay in it.  This is why I suggest he might have changed his view on nursing leads.  I hope I'm right about this.

100% correct. Players and coaches are always thinking about game tape. Front office and management might make moves to leverage the present for the future or vice versa. Coaches want to win and so do players. Nobody makes it to the NFL that isn’t a competitor.

Dang, with how Buffalo likes to play every game close, that is quite a spread. I mean, Miami almost tied, today. Not sure they are serious about that #1 overall.

I think the # will come down this week but, I kinda get it.

Good lord.  That's a high spread with Foster's status being uncertain.

I know right?  Could easily make a similar post about the Pats.  Something like “The best team in the AFC currently, needed a fluke blocked punt that was returned for a TD against the Bills to beat them”.

Just a friendly reminder that the spread has nothing to do with what Vegas thinks the final score will be and everything to do with getting the same number of people to bet on both sides.

 

Every time a missed extra point blows the spread "the fix is in".  But nobody talks about a game like tonight where the Chargers are laying 6.5 and are down 24-0 at home with a quarter left.

Lol... so a tipping an INT to your defensive teammate is now a “ less than “ play ? I suppose you must beat all opponents by 2/or more TDs to be a valid win ? What a crock....

It's obvious some people will NEVER understand that.  But it isn't about getting the same number of people to bet, but balancing the money bet on both sides.
