The Defense is good, can we agree they are not all time great....

Recommended Posts

As were the Monsters of the Midway or the 2000 Ravens and the Bills can not win every game 17-13?

 

Today we saw Miami almost beat them and if not for a bad Int at the goal line (and subsequent 98 yard drive) and a bad fumble the Bills again play to their competition.

 

This trying to control the clock and game between the 20's is a dangerous recipe and the Bills need to know how to score in the high 20's.

You need a bye week. 

 

The defense is very good and the strength of this team. They are not "legendary."

 

The team is 5-1 and took the Dolphins best shot today and won by 10.

They looked like poop until the 4th qtr. They had a bad day and really really missed Milano today.

Yep. I hate the conservative nature of the team, but that’s all McDermott.

They're very good with Milano. They are not very good with "Maurice Alexander". LB depth is a problem.

even the 2000 Ravens had a couple stinkers.  Gave up 36 to the Jaguars in an early-season game.

But the D in fact did its job and stopped Miami from blowing the game wide open. I will say that Milano was missed out there especially against the run. How can you defend against a QB who is letting it rip within 2 seconds of the snap. Fitz did what he does and it propelled Miami to the near upset. You think there was some secret D play that would have stopped those passes?

No one in their right mind compared this year’s Bills D to the 2000 Ravens. In the current NFL, they can put a team in great position to win a lot of games. They’re winning while the offense is still figuring things out. There are worse things that could happen.

Miami had scored 42 points prior to today & seemed pretty competent on Offense (on the road no less) against a Defense that had some here going on and on about as the best in the league.

Many were calling them the best in the 2019 NFL (or top 3)......

 

And McDermott coaches the Offense as if they are and can win every game 14-10..

I do wish they would blitz more, and be more creative when they do.

Yeah bye weeks can kind of screw up things...they won. There are no style points. Its a week to week league.

The Bills defense is pretty good, one of the better units in the NFL. They had an off day by their current standards. They will never be confused with the ‘85 bears or the 2000 Ravens.

Nfl.com had them ranked #2 behind the pats based off stats before today.   

 

They were probably stating facts

In todays NFL with the current rules the 85 Bears and 00 Ravens wouldn’t compare to their former selves if they were to take the field now.

Not really an excuse, but Miami receivers caught a lot of contested passes, and passes that weren’t that great. 

The Bills still don’t have big, strong, mean, fast receivers.  Duke isn’t fast, but he’s got most of those other characteristics covered. He needs more targets (assuming he’s healthy).

So do I, but it’s just not in their defensive philosophy. An elite DE  obviously helps  the rush and it’s their main weakness , as well as LB depth.

I love the logic of these types of posts. “Take away all the good things they did and they didn’t do anything good.”

OP, why wasn’t this posted earlier, at any time, this season?

 

 

I have.....  It is my continual concern that this coaching staff is too pre-occupied with Defense and thinking that games can be won 17-13, 14-10 on a consistent basis.

 

I want to see this team concentrate on Offense for a change.

All I know is, that whatever is going on in the locker room at half time, a different Bills team emerges from the tunnel for the 3rd quarter...quite a transformation.

The INT wasn’t even a bad pass. It was a great play by a great player. The play before it was a great play and 8-9 yard loss. They gave up 14 points to the good Fitzy. They were not great, good, bad, or awful. They surely could play a lot better than they did. But while watching I thought they were getting gashed on the ground. But the Fins had 109 yards on 3.6 yards per carry.

so we’re of the opinion now that the defense has to hold any and all teams to less than 14 points/game and if they don’t they suck? 
 

how about asking the offense to put up anything close to what a “good” offense puts up regularly? Nah we’d have to talk about josh then...
