Taylor, J. Phillips & Liuget take over the D-Line

Recommended Posts

I congratulate the GM & HC for making these changes to the defense. It isn't easy or pleasant to make changes at mid-season.  Players will sit when they believed they were starters. The "process" is about winning!

Taylor played like 10 snaps last week but he’s taking over?

We will see how it all plays out, but this seems to be the direction the D is taking. It seems mostly to be Jordan Phillips taking over for Oliver and perhaps Liegut rotates in. He's only 300 so he seems a little small to be the space eater and take on double teams. 

Thats V. Taylor and. he will spell Star and perhaps knock his snaps down. The big change is getting Oliver off the field and seeing if Star is part of the problem. Kudos to the Bills for addressing it mid-season. 

 

I think a lot of game film from the last 3 weeks is being digested and they are going to make an attempt to figure it out. If Chubb and Hunt run over us, it's going to be a long game for the Bills.  The LB's need to be held accountable too. It will be interesting to see if a move for Dodsen happens and if Thompson gets some snaps now that he his healthy.

9 snaps, 3 tackles including a tackle for loss.  How'd Star do?

Star is anything but...

Fine, if you're primarily only there to be a space-eater and command attention from 1 or 2 blockers, but at some point you also have to make some plays. I seriously doubt he is getting double-teamed most plays. So when he is one-on-one, he's got to blow his guy up and cause some havoc. Maybe that would make teams double him more. Sunday (vs Wash) he was all turned around multiple times as the RB ran right past him. I re-watched 2 plays in particular and I'm like, "What the hell is Star doing?" He was loafing around in circles during the play - it was baffling.

That doesn't mean they are taking over.  It means Phillips and Star played more.

Liguet signing means Taylor probably won't even be here anymore....so he will take over from the couch.

BRD, I said before in an earlier post that I would like to see J. Philips stay, possibly in the 7-8 million range.  

 

I now think it is going to cost more than that, but my opinion hasn't changed.

He pled guilty to lesser charges.  The DV charge was dropped.  He hadn't been in trouble with the law before.  I think he's on a short leash.

I''m confused about your comment above?  Star will play more?  Taylor isn't going anywhere after 3 tackles in 9 total snaps.  Check out Star's tackles after 8 games!  Both Taylor & Liuget are veterans with quickness.  I see Shaq & Oliver taking a back seat on other than on obvious passing downs.

It's one game, get it?

 

And so far - with the exception of Peko being let go and people replacing his snaps -  nobody's taken over much of anything yet. As usual, people who don't wait for all the facts to come in will come to a lot more erroneous conclusions than those who do. Get it?

All the FACTS to come in?   Is this a Congressional investigation?  Watch the snap counts - - - these are facts!

I would like to see Taylor get more time. He made a nice play sniffing out the screen. So he’s the first person on our team to do that.

Run D isn’t even the only factor here. Especially this week, and vs Brady as well, they need to get pressure up the middle. Mayfield is a timing based QB. He can scramble a bit but the key is to disrupt his timing and knock him off his spot. Shoring up the interior of the DL is good for the run D because they were a bit light up front (this D is built to stop  the pass) but I’m glad they recognized they need more there.

Agreed.  Dodson was a good kid at A&M who was big brother figure to a disabled child.  Dodson was intoxicated on Day of incident and imagine he may have sought help in interim.
