This loss could be the start of the collapse (schedule talk)

Recommended Posts

Not going to complain (in this topic anyway) about all the specifics that were so wrong with this game but the short of it is that today really highlighted all of our shortcomings in 1 game and resulted in us losing against a bad football team. Sure, the Browns added talent but they showed exactly why they don't win today very clearly and we basically out-Browns'd them anyway. 

 

So, to put in context how important this loss was to us: 

 

@Miami - Almost beat us at home recently and plays much better with Fitz at QB. We'll probably win but could easily lose. 

vBroncos - 50/50 at best...odds are the Broncos beat us. They're at least good enough to beat the Browns. 

@Cowboys - Obvious loss

vRavens - Obvious loss

@Steelers  - 50/50 at best, not a game we are likely to win on the road. 

@NE - Obvious loss

v.Jets - Again, we could easily lose. Probably win though. 

 

Bottom line is we're looking at a 9-7 records assuming we take care of business against Jets, Miami, and spit with Broncos/Steelers. We have to do that AND either sweep the Steelers/Broncos match-ups or beat one of the vastly superior teams (Ravens, Pats, Cowboys) to get to 10. 

 

Today was a terrible loss. 6-3 for now but the cakewalk schedule is about to heat up.

It is entirely possible they drop their LAST 5 games.  I will not be shocked if the Jets beat them in week 17.

Dallas beat the Eagles.  They are a physical team.  They will run all over the Bills.  The Bills can not beat a physical team.

The best this offense has looked in the past two years is against the Jets, in New Jersey, last season.

 

I wonder why?

We should start Barkley?

Haha jibberish. Dallas is an obvious loss my arse. They almost lost to the Giants and did lose to the Jets. Dallas hasn't beat anyone either. Stop being so overdramatic. Enjoy the ride.

Of course it’s possible.  It’s also possible they win their last 5.

I would say it’s as close as you can get to obvious especially on thanksgiving

 

174.5 total yards for Zeke, taking the over or under?

Relax. Bills win the next two and coast to 10-6. 

This team couldn’t coast down an icy hill.

The Bills are a 9-7 team. Above average but not great. Heck, they might not even be that good. They beat the teams they should beat and nothing more. Will that be good enough for the playoffs? I don’t think so but we’ll see.

 

Whatever happens, Daboll has to go because I need a look at Allen with someone else. I already had doubts but we need more from the QB position. We have to find out if Allen’s the guy or not.

No collapse, but it probably takes 10 wins off the table.   

 

Then again, even if they get a wild card slot, does anyone think they'd have a ghost of a chance of a road win?

Could be. If the coaching on offense doesn’t improve every game is 50/50 at best. We also have a HC who plays scared and afraid to allow his offense win a game.

Underrated thread. I could very well see the Bills pulling an upset against the cowboys. Lose to the broncos and lose to either the jets or phins to finish 9-7.

Only if they can beat Pittsburgh on the road.  And the Steelers are a better team/tougher place to play than the Browns...

At Dallas on a short week? We are going to get buried in that game. People aren’t understanding what today is going to mean. It’s over

under.  And yeah, I get the whole primetime thing.  I still have it penciled in as a loss, but Dallas is not some worldbeater team like New England.

You must not have heard. I’m going to Dallas. That pretty much guarantees the loss right there.

They also lost to the Jets. If you're going to play transitive of the Eagles game then don't leave out the transitive of the Jets game that both Buffalo and Dallas played

There is only 2 more games on the schedule I think they could win, Dolphins & Jets. The rest of the games, no way, the weaknesses of this team are really starting to show on tape and they're toast IMO.  

 

This team needs a new HC.  I wish Beane was in charge and not McDermott, it means we have to wait another 2-3 excruciating seasons for Pegula to do something about Mcdermott.
