Why I like the Bills having a short week against the Boys

Im of the notion that even with 50 days to prepare we will get absolutely stomped by the Ravens.

 

Rather use the 10 days on a more winnable game. 

 

You were awfully worried THIS week, too. So there's that.

worst call for tripping since Benny Barnes "tripped" up Lynn Swann

Something else I thought of last night... It may mean absolutely nothing. 

But I saw a quote from Coach McDermott that said, basically "I'm going to get a bite to eat and change clothes and get to work on Dallas". Conveniently, the Bills were at home in an early time slot yesterday, where the coaching staff could literally go down to their offices after the postgame press conferences and get to work with it being a short week. Dallas had to play on the road, in the later time slot. Which means that after their 4 hour flight back home, it was probably 2:00 am. Bills coaching staff already had a head start on them. 

Again, it could mean absolutely nothing. But i feel like every minute counts in these short weeks.

I think the Bills will hang with every opponent except maybe Baltimore. I have felt since before the season their style was just a bad match up against us. Wouldn't surprise if that was a 2 or 3 score loss. Think every other game is at worst a 1 score defeat. And the closer we get to Dallas the more I feel like we can win that game. 

 

Honestly it comes down to this for me: We have put enough good football on tape from all three phases of our team throughout the season that tells me we can beat any team left on our schedule. Josh's game against the Dolphins + the Defenses game against the Patriots and we beat the Ravens. That being said, the exact opposite can be said as well, unfortunately. It's a crazy season and we've seen McD coached teams win games that they shouldn't (while losing games they shouldn't). 

 

All that to say, I don't think it's blind homerism to say we actually have a chance in these games. I'm almost at a point where I'd be disappointed if we do lose to Dallas as they really haven't done anything this year. But I am cautiously optimistic. I said after the Browns game that I saw it as a turning point, and I envisioned our Offense coming to life down the stretch. So far that was right, I'm excited to see if it continues.

The Cowboys did get screwed by the refs in that game yesterday, and the league is undoubtedly highly aware of this. 

 

the tail wagging the dog - who do you think was behind the Cowboys getting jobbed ?

Good points. 

 

Plus, Cowboys had a tough game on the road, Bills had a relatively easy win at home.  

 

Set up about as well as it could be.  

And the Bills got a three hour head start on preparation!!

That could play against the Bills. They could come out angry and wanting to punch the bills hard in the mouth, especially at home.

 

i don’t see how the Bills win against the Ravens anyways, your biggest weakness on D is their biggest strength.. running the football.  I hope I’m wrong because I’d like see the Bills beat the Ravens.. give everyone a good blue print how to do it..

I think Baltimore is our toughest game as well, it’s the game I have the most trepidation about for sure. Over the holiday break I plan to watch the tape of their losses to see what happened there. Hoping to see something that we can expose.

Make sure you reach out to the FO and present them your findings.

So maybe understand that about yourself and think twice about whether or not your concerns are based in facts or are a product of your ultra-productive worry glands. 

 

Like, i have a similar type issue. I'm ultra powerful and strong. I have to watch myself in crowded situations because one false move and i can amputate limbs with a karate chop. 

So sometimes i just stay home. 

 

You can choose to "stay home" in the sense that you don't post every time you start thinkin' like a scaredy cat.

Great point!.  You're 100% correct.  Every minute does count and McD is definitely aware of that.  On this short week, I really do think that we're in a better position than them.

I would have thought that we'd benefit from more prep time. I trust McD to out coach Garrett if given the opportunity. But that's not what this game is about. Dallas has a big, bruising offensive line similar to Philly. We can win if we stop the run game. This isn't an ideal match up for our defense.

I certainly will stay at home now for fear of karate chops from random incredibly powerful guy.

 

Id rest easy if wed have beat any of the tough teams this year.

Do you think the league would get mad if we just stayed home and tried to get ready for the next game???

 

I don’t think there is a team in the NFL that we can’t beat if we play a good, solid game and get a couple breaks.

I can still see that decrepit old cryptkeeper's face in the booth when they beat us on that MNF field goal game. He's a goddamn football ghoul.

 

Stick it to the boys. If we go in and beat them on Thanksgiving the way they are now...their whole franchise will be in  tailspin, Garrett ain't clapping his way to an extension. Crapping in Jerrie's cranberry sauce would make me very THANKful.

Those ‘trips’ were an absolute joke.

 

Overall, I had been pleased with the officiating the last couple of weeks but those were just horrendous. I hope we don’t have that group for Thanksgiving.

I don't know about Vinovich, but glad we didn't get Boger. His crews seems to be flag happy.  Any idea about the broadcast team, maybe we can get Romo?

🤔.. Nah, I think they’d understand -what with it being a non-conference game n’ all..

I don’t like playing desperate teams. This is the 2nd time this year that we played an NFC East team in a must win scenario. As easy as the schedule has been it’s tough playing teams that absolutely have to win the game. That’s the case here
