Week 7: Dolphins at Bills (-17)

Dang, with how Buffalo like 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.

Makes sense, lesson learned. Thanks.

I mean, Miami almost beat the also winless Redskins. I don't think we will play them close. Even if Allen struggles, which would be a shock, how are they going to move the ball on our defense?

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

 

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

 

What does he have to gain??????? The #1 overall pick! He was told when hired that they wouldn't hold this year against him *wink wink

 

You are delusional if you think tanking in sports isnt a real thing. This isnt some conspiracy theory.

BTW Miami will be set up VERY nice to turn things around big time IF (a very BIG IF) they can hit on most these draft picks. Its actually well worth the tanking if it equals years and years of being a perennial contender. I almost fell to the point where I hoped the Bills would tank after so many years of middling and missing out on top picks. Im glad we finally have a competent GM who seems to know how to build a contender without doing that. Time will tell.

The bills are on their way to a 2nd playoff appearance in 3 years and it’s rubbing so many people the wrong way. People that live to crack jokes on the low hanging fruit like the bills of the last 20 years.... they are all sorts of confused and butt hurt over it.

If the players and coaches are tanking, the Fins will have to completely replace the entire team and all the coaches. There is no building a team with guys who willingly lose. Tanking may help a team get a few better players (if they guess right on all the picks--which doesn't happen), but the culture is shot to hell. And TEAMS win, not a collection of individual players.

McDermott needs to start showing us he has a killer instinct. Miami is the worst team against the rush so he will probably run 70% of the time and make it a 24-13 game. Be merciless and go for the jugular and go open set and put up 21 in the first half and put your foot on their neck like real playoff teams at home would do!!! This game could be 38-13 if we stop playing not to lose.

McDermott needs to ---Win. That's all he needs to do. Just win. However it comes, just win. Doesn't matter how much you win by, unless it comes down to some serious tiebreakers. 

 

Period.
