Are we in trouble with Ford?

Recommended Posts

Seeing how this season actually have playoff implications, if this going to end up being a big issue for us going forward?

McD said yesterday that he is impressed and comfortable with Ford at RT in Ty's absence. Whether or not they choose to have another combination at that spot (Bates I assume) remains to be seen. So no, I don't believe we are in "trouble"

They should be able to scheme some to help him with Chubb out. I don't see it as an enormous problem until it is. Honestly, I would worry more with him playing full time snaps into the fourth quarter and playing from behind. Getting ahead and running the ball late, with Ryan Bates perhaps getting a series or two, may not be the worst idea.

Ford is not a RT.  He will struggle and force us to line up a TE to help him block.  Get ready for more Lee Smith.

Ford is a RT. He is just a rookie RT.  Believe it or not, Rookies often take time to adjust and learn.

Ford has played more snaps than people appreciate, and he has done better as the season has progressed.  Ford will struggle against Miller, every tackle in the league does, but he will hold his own.

I know that people are quick to write him off, and I'm no football expert other than watching the Bills games and playing in high school, but some lineman take a while to develop. There are some that come in right away and are beasts. He seems to be coachable and I'm hoping he improves. I feel like he was mentioned on here a lot more negatively early on, but maybe I haven't been paying attention. Just like Allen, you need to give these guys time. I can''t say he's been a game changer, by any means, but I wouldn't write him of just yet, as some seem to have done already

Yes

Then why did you ask? 

 

Not that much of a problem imo, Bates will be there to help out, as will be other guys, Coach understands the circumstances and will adjust accordingly. With the pressure amping up as we get closer to the post season everyone will need to up their respective game. I feel confident in the teams ability to adapt.

 

Go Bills!!!

He wasn't the one who started the thread or asked anything.

Sharing the work at tackle was a good idea for a rookie.  But, its 10 games in now, and he isn't so much a rookie anymore.  Still, the question is fair and the result is TBD.

I drive a Ford Escape I've had no trouble.

Let me guess. It blows smoke, is not nimble and leaks? 😁
