Postgame: Dolphins 21 at Bills 31

Recommended Posts

I remember Henry Jones scoring on an onside kick return against Arizona in 99.

Back in the early ‘90s, this happened to the Bills more than I care to remember. They would slay tough teams by a mile and then get blown out by bottom dwellers. 

 

 

Almost 30 years ago, maybe.

I remember going to see the Bills play Tampa Bay with the Orlando Backers during the SB years. The Bills won something like 9-6 or 6-3. It was horrible to watch, and I remember being pissed on the bus ride home because the backers were cheering and laughing and I was pissed we let the Bucs keep it a game.

 

Fortunately, I grew up and realized how stupid I must have sounded to everyone.

I’m fine with Hyde taking it into the end zone. This team needed a big pick me up after such a horrid performance. Plus, all week we would’ve had to hear about the Bills only beating the Fins by 3. That would’ve been annoying. There’s no way they would’ve come back from a 10 point deficit. 

 

Yup.  That's only an issue if you are up by a single point (2 points if you're worried about the PAT).

I remember those days. It just seemed incomprehensible. The Bills would look like two different teams.

My theory of what happens in these types of games is that the lineman (O-line and Front 7), who rely on emotion more than other positions, end up not quite as fired up. They may not even realize it and think they are as pumped as playing the Patriots , but instead that spark is 90-95% of what it would be against a challenging opponent. And, it makes a big difference to the rest of the team.

So it's wrong to point out a area that needs improvement? Got it.

Not what I said and you know that. 

 

Josh has gone from a 52% competition percentage to a 62 plus percent completion percentage, something that many here said he could not do, and is what so many wanted.

 

Now that he has accomplished that, and has a winning record, and is 5-1 this season.  I guess folk have to complain about Long passes that are a league wide low percentage completion rate not being up to whatever level they would prefer.

 

Hell, the kid is a gamer, and proved that again today.  This is the Bills we are taking about, a perennial under performing team that is seeing more success than we as fans have experienced in some time, so lighten up there and enjoy the ride a little, geesh, picky picky...

 

Go Bills!!!

We need to beat the Eagles.  

 

Not true. The Eagles and the Cowboys are the least important games remaining on our schedule. We can afford to lose 5 games the rest of the year.

I use a similar one: An ugly win is prettier than the best moral victory.

 

I've lived through too many "moral victories" in the 2000s to believe in those anymore.

Absence of Milano on D sure made a difference but also noticed Star was not playing a lot wonder if he was nicked up

Not if they want to win the division and actually try to do something in the playoffs.

I think Peko and Phillips have been earning more playing time. Time will tell if Star stays on , but he has to do more than just absorb blockers as this D relies on the interior guys penetrating at least a bit to make it hard to step into a pocket. Maybe he is dinged, maybe they are looking to light a fire under him. Competition for reps is a good thing.

One way or the other we go through the Pats

 

Beating the New England Patriots is what the whole process is all about.

We don’t have to win the division to “do something” in the playoffs. 
 

this style of team can travel.

Really didn't like running out the clock with over two minutes to go before the half. Should always try to score more.

ALWAYS great to beat the Felons, ***** Miami. 5-1, 4-1 in the conference is outstanding.

 

I blame the shite red uniforms for the game being close, please burn them already.:thumbdown:

I know it's been a long time, but I think you've forgotten what home playoff games in Buffalo are like. It would be a huge advantage, especially if it's against NE. This team is too inexperienced to go on the road and win in the playoffs vs high quality opposition.

Would have been a different game if Dawson Knox would have make those plays. We would have grabbed momentum much sooner.  

Josh needs a DEPENDABLE, playmaking TE

Home games are advantages for sure.

 

On the other hand Buffalo is turning into a very hard matchup regardless of where they play.

 

I mean think about it, 5 - 1 and not anywhere close to hitting on all cylinders.

 

MERCY!!!

I think they can win a road WC game because that team isn’t likely to be appreciably better than the Bills and the D I strong. It would get considerably more difficult after that. This team doesn’t appear to be capable enough on offense to unseat NE as division champion. Barring some unforeseen collapse by NE due to injury or anything else, the Bills are probably looking at a WC best case scenario this season.
