Week 10: Bills at Browns

Recommended Posts

They better learn to stop the run otherwise Chubb is going to have a field day.

Singletary needs to be used at the goal line.  He has the quickness and elusiveness to bounce it outside if the middle is clogged.  Gore is just a guy who goes north and south....

Or, sadly, straight into the ground this week.

The browns game is massive now. They are destructing. We are a healthy scratch. let's go in and beat them for 7-2.

 

I haven't seen the killer instinct/ability to put teams away yet and that might come back to bite us here. I feel like Allen will play well in this game though.

I’m talking about the offense. Not offense + Micah Hyde’s special teams heroics.

So now they have to score points in a specific way.  If they score 30 next week you’ll say they have to score 30 with just passing.

 

Some around here refuse to enjoy a successful team.

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.


It’s definitely more than possible. It’s the likely scenario according to Vegas oddsmakers, albeit slightly more than 50%. 
 

This game will be a good test, no matter what the records say. At this point, I’m not sure what to think. I expect a close game either way.

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.

I'm curious. What information leads you to make this assumption?

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.

Yeah. Hopefully the bills don't lay an egg as soon as they are favourites.

They could start by scoring in the *gasp* 30s for once.

 

I think they're getting close.  24 points on Offense with no points off turnovers against Washington with windy conditions.

 

If we ever decide to hit on a deep ball or play offense in 3rd quarters, we just may start seeing that.

 

Very interested to see this offense against Cleveland, with Singletary as our established feature back.  He won't be taking anyone by surprise on Sunday, but now he also needs to be game planned for.

Please keep up. The subject is the offense. It’s simply not good enough to win 11 or more games. An NFL offense scoring 30 points shouldn’t be as rare as a golden tiger sighting.

Anyone else concerned about Levi Wallace getting torched by Landry?  I'm assuming Beckham will be followed by White all game

The Bills not only covered the spread yesterday with 5 points to spare but they beat the skins by more (15) than their average margin of loss (12). I don’t know if people want 30 point victories but that’s not normal in the NFL. This wasn’t Clemson - Wofford.

Name me a team that was 2-6 then made the playoffs.

While it does not happen very often (hardly at all),  it has happened

 

The KC Chiefs 2015 were once in the dregs and had 10 wins straight to put them into the playoffs

Oh no.  They have to score in a very specific manner.  Only scores where Allen fades back and throws a ball 60 yards into the air that lands like a butterfly with sore feet into the waiting arms of Foster will now be acceptable as scores for the Bills.  Any others will be counted as touchbacks with the ball given back to the opposing team.

 

Also, any further victories against teams with a losing record will only be counted as half a victory.

The Clowns are still playing like the Clowns!

 

They have a buffoon for a HC- far out of his depth and a douche for a QB, included in their multiple prima donnas. Still- they’re dangerous. Keep them dysfunctional and steal one next week.

 

This is another Bills’ test.

Some concern. They go for it a lot on 4th down as well so that is a worry as we have been good at holding teams to field goals. And the run game with chubb. Want to see what we can do on offence.

So the minimum acceptable perfomance is scoring on every possession?

 

Why shouldn't that be the standard for the Bills????   I'm sure that Belichick and Co have that standard for the Pats.   I'm sure that that's what Andy Reid, John Harbaugh, Sean McVay, Frank Reich, and Doug Pedersen expect from their offenses?   Why do the Bills FO/HCs accept mediocrity as "good enough" -- and so many of their fans applaud them for it?

The one thought that keeps sticking in my head is Myles Garrett taking Trevor Siemian down late and snapping his ankle. With Josh trying to extend plays and the Browns being clearly frustrated, I am concerned the late hits could take their toll eventually. The line better come ready to play and I am completely fine with one personal foul penalty if someone goes at Josh late and Feliciano wants to make sure it doesn't happen again.

Talk to Dabol about that because he is calling a ball control game plan. We scored on every possession in the first half and only had 17. And I think Dabol's playcalling is what's wrong on the 3Q.

 

It's Jauron ball, and it's been McDermott's style since he became HC. Play not to lose.  Don't take many chances and especially not big chances.   Daboll either shares McDermott's philosophy or has adapted to it.

So far it has worked but not so sure it will continue to work against teams that have good offenses. At some point you have to take chances to win in this league. The best teams always do. I am not talking about going for it in 4th and 1 in the other teams end. I would love to see more big yard plays. Most teams don't try to score with 10 play drives all the time. 

 

My worry is it won't change cause it doesn't fit into McDermott's ball control philosophy. Just once it would be nice to see a modern offense in Buffalo. You can't rely on a good defense forever cause history has shown its hard to keep a good defense together for a long period of time.

"Jauron ball" runs those plays from 1st and goal at the 2 in the first quarter?

 

You guys crack me up.  No, McD is not some crazily aggressive coach but he's also not playing "not to lose."  People keep forgetting that this offense is brand new and it takes time to develop an identity.
