Week 10: Bills at Browns

This is the exact type of game the Billsy Bill's show up in. Under achieving Browns team coming off an embarrassing loss. Against a Bills team that looked respectable in a win. The type of game that slaps the fan base back to reality. 

I'll be a happy man if the Bills prove me wrong. Do you think shameless begging will help...please pleased please don't lose to the Browns.

 

One thing for sure, it will be another meaningless win against a terrible opponent, like the rest of them. Am I right?

It's been a fun ride but I have a feeling the wheels are about to fly off bigtime. We will win 2 maybe 3 the rest of the way.

 

Sounds like youre referring to just road games

 

I'll take that 👍

Not for me it won't be. If we beat the Browns, even though they have been bad, it may just change my attitude about this season. I am serious when I say this is the type of game we normally blow. So winning this game will without a doubt have a positive effect on me.

I'm not so sure. My crystal ball sees a worried post about the Broncos defense and rejuvenated offense under Brandon Allen.

It's a week to week league, and this week I can only relate to the game with the Browns.

Beckham and Landry being told that they needed to change shoes at the half or they wouldn't be allowed on the field for the second tells you much about where this "team" is right now.  They are talented but fractured.  I hope, deeply, that this is not the week Mayfield decides to just toss the ball to Beckham time after time.  While an ass, he is hugely underutilized.

Gore is averaging 4.4 ypc. He was a contributor to our wins. Running Gore ensures that Singletary gets a break when needed. Both aren't bad things. Yesterday the Redskins had Gore’s number. They are professionals to that probably stated they weren’t going to allow Gore to win the game for Buffalo. They get paid too.

Look at how I phrased the question. I understand Gore needs to spell Singletary, but Gore is slowing down as the season goes on. I think it’s going to get worse as it gets colder and the more touches he gets. Singletary showed the complete package yesterday . Singletary can run, catch, and pick up the blitz. Gore’s touches should be non essential and limited.

Why is it the developing storyline is ‘IF the Browns lose, they probably don’t make the playoffs’? They’re a 2-6 team, ferchistsake! Why would 2-7 shake up the world? I don’t get it.

You don’t think there is a difference between 6 losses and 7 when it comes to making the playoffs?

Its never going to be that way. They will have another back to spell him. Its what people who learn from mistakes do.

Of course they will. This year it’s Gore. It’s not the worse backup to have, but better will be found in the draft and FA next off season.

To me, this is another one of those games that those on this board who doubt the Bills (far too many) will love.  If the Bills win, they get to say "well Cleveland is 2-7 so it's another easy game that the Bills should win" and if the Bills lose they get to say "I told you they weren't that good!"

 

Personally I'm feeling pretty optimistic after yesterday's game.  Yes I know all of the excuses (It was Washington, it was a rookie, they didn't blow them out, blah blah blah) but the Bills played a solid game.  Singletary played great, Allen continues to cut down on his mistakes, they made adjustments to stopping the run for the second half.  We knew from the beginning that the Bills would win their games in an ugly fashion.  Now that it's happening we shouldn't be surprised.  I'm quite happy with being the worst 6-2 ever, that's better than being the best 2-6 team ever

I absolutely agree.  Most of the Bills wins have been against teams without a whole lot of talent.  The Browns have the talent to do to the Bills what Philly did.  As I said in the thread about the next four games, if they get their act together, they are fully capable of smacking the Bills upside the head.

 

BTW, the 7-1 Packers visited the 3-5 Chargers, another team which has underperformed its talent, and got embarrassed, so for the Browns to trip up the Bills is entirely possible.

All I have to say is ...  :censored: em all if they just don't get it.

If the Bills beat the Browns it will be one step closer to finally kicking the Billsy habit.

I mean. We brought him in and the line got rolled. Especially in short yardage in goalline situations.

Yep, and Singletary was able to bounce it outside and score easily. Gore can’t do that.

But earlier in the year he was money in those situations. So what changed? Gore feeling his age? Line not making holes? Predictable playcalling?

 I think this will be a tough game for the Bills but one they should win. The game plan will be very different than against the Redskins. 

 

The Browns have a GREAT pash rush and for those complaining about too few play-action plays, I think you’ll see a lot of them against the Browns to slow down the pass rush. Given the Browns’ DEs, I think we’ll see a healthy dose of Gore and Singletary runs between the tackles. 


Defensively, Chubb is the whole game to me. If the Bills can stop him without loading the box with 8, it will force Mayfield to win the game with an inferior O-line protecting him. I see Landry getting a lot more targets than Beckham because he runs more shallow crossing routes and the Bills may have Tre dedicated to Beckham all day.

 

And can we get some freakin’ INTs from our defense? Do they know they are allowed to catch passes? :(

If Baker does that, in his current state of not being a very good QB, he’ll also be throwing those balls towards Tre White...
