Anyone else think Bills will dominate on Sunday?

Recommended Posts

No not dominate. Fitzpatrick almost beat the Bills in Buffalo. He'll make plays again.

 

Be a very tight game. Allen needs to play his best game of the season in order to win.

When have they dominated, and why should this be any different? No downfield passing game in their punchless offense. Defense has to be at the top of it's game (unlike how they've played since the first Miami game).This game is a toss-up, imo.

No we will not dominate we will be tested by a team with renewed confidence and we don’t seem like a confident team since the eagles loss

I do think the bills come out hard and fast and run the ball and get disciplined on D and dominate.

 

of course, i know i'm setting myself up for disappointment, but i've been a pretty rabid bills fan for about 30 years, so im good at it!

I cant think of a game they dominated in score and performance for 4 quarters so I hope so but will believe it when I see it.

I hope they do & they have the talent to do so but i hope they don't rest on their laurels because ole Fitz could make them pay if they do !!

Nope.  I have given up looking for a statement Dominating win.  they AVG 19 points a game they are not going to move too far from that number.

 

To piggyback off of that...the Bills have shown us who they are with over half the season over.  They are a team that scores about 19 points a game (and those were against bad teams), so either we believe this is kind of who they are, or we don't believe it and think they are going on some sort of scoring binge, even though there is very little evidence to support that thought.

 

It is probable that it will be another low scoring game, decided by 7 points or less.

Well we know crowd noise in Miami is a non-factor, so its a neutral-field type environment.  

Fins strengths:   they have a few good wr's, Fitz will be able to audible unlike last game, they seem to have some decent team chemistry, playing for a new coach and each other after the nation figured they were going for a winless season.

 

Bills strengths:   fired up after tough loss last week, better run game, better defense and most of all Josh has that look in his eyes now.  The kid isn't letting the Bills lose this one.

 

I think you may see Siran neal rotating in for Taron and KJ rotating in for Wallace and more Shaq in for Murphy (or even Jerry depending on injury) as Frasier tinkers with the mix.

The thing about Fitz is that he comes in, invokes Fitzmagic, but it always eventually runs out. It's the reason he keeps finding himself on the bench.

 

His stats have been declining every game since he came out against us with the exception of the literal Jets.

 

We're coming out fired up and with a much longer leash from McDermott.

Nope. Cleveland game burst the bubble of my confidence in this team to put up points or even stop the run.

Simply put, I think McDermott is a conservative, defensive minded head coach who avoids risk whenever he can.

 

I don't think that will lead to any long term success, because I don't look around the NFL and see any top coaches who I see approaching the game the same way. 

 

McVay, Peyton, Belichick, Reid, Pederson, etc. These are aggressive, never take your foot off the gas, go for it on 4th down type guys. 

 

McDermott isn't cut from the same cloth. 

 

I know you disagree but I think it's a smart way to bring up Allen imo. You have to remember though the HC isn't in charge of the offense, that's the OC, so wouldn't it be OC Brian Daboll who is too conservative or did you mean in general with his on the field game management?

They are catching a little bit of a break as Preston Williams, Drake(no longer with team), and surprising RB Walton..... I just don’t trust the Bills offense to put up points and our defense to shut any offense down. Their weaknesses defensively have been exposed.

Doesn't this ever get boring to you?  Seriously.  Do you have other people writing the same old crap in 20 different threads per day?  I can't imagine you could motivate yourself to do it alone.

How do you not get tired of weekly predictions that THIS is the week the Bills are going to blow someone out?

Nothing ScottLaw said was even remotely "crap," nor was it unreasonable. Saying "I just don't trust the Bills offense to put up points and our defense to shut any offense down," is NOT far-fetched at all. 

The offense hasn't had ONE SINGLE GAME where they played well for the full 60 minutes. Not one. There have been large stretches that have spanned at least an entire quarter or 2 where they struggle to even get a 1st down, let alone put up a FG. Often times the defense will even give them extra opportunities, or special teams will set us up in great field position, only for the offense to go backwards (whether via penalties, sacks, fumbles, etc.), turn it over or go 3 & out.

And everyone knows we're having these struggles against the league's worst teams! It's not like these are hard fought battles against dominant opponents on the road...instead they're against teams like the Bengals, Browns, Titans, Jets, Dolphins, etc. and they're happening at home too!

So why anyone would get upset when someone doesn't just automatically assume we're going to dominate an opponent every week is beyond me.

What we have shown is that we're going to struggle offensively each week, and that our defense will do its bend-don't-break routine. We'll play neck & neck with bad opponents, and hope that we can do just enough by the end to escape with a victory. Anyone who predicts that should not be criticized at all.

 

Just saying "I expect us to put up a bajillion points & Allen will have his first 300 yard game!" each week doesn't make it more likely to happen. You can't wish it hard enough into existence, so being critical of those who aren't saying absurdly optimistic/unrealistic things is just rude.

Remember a few years ago when the Bills knocked the Jets (and Fitzpatrick) out of the playoffs in the last game of the season? Here is Fitz' chance for revenge (a loss all but knocks Buffalo out of serious playoff talk).

Any team needs to get turnovers to be dominate in any game, unless you have a team that is DOMINANT.

 

The Bills don’t get turnovers, so how could they possibly dominate anyone?

 

Is the O all of a sudden going to be explosive enough to dominate?

 

Until proven otherwise, this game is going to be annoyingly close (like they all are). 
 

Miami and the points are a gift, of course, until proven otherwise.
