McD & Beanie can say that now, but it really makes him look very foolish. Some suggest, that even though Jackson was obviously better in College, he would have been a bad fit for the Bills at the time, given their philosophy. (McD has now opened things up for Allen- not filling him full of protectionist bullshite.

College Recaps:

Jackson threw for 9000+ yards, 69TDs, 27INTs + Rushing for 4100 yards + a Heisman Trophy!

Allen had 5000 yards Passing in College, 44TDs,  21INTd & 700 Rushing Yards.

 

There was no comparison! But, most insiders suspect that OBD saw Jackson as TT 2.0... something they loathed looking at! Even though Jackson CRUSHES Taylor’s College Stats.

 

In the end, Jackson is on route to being the league MVP and Allen is up & coming.

9-3 overall this season, one of the losses was Philly who scored 31. The other two were under 20.  Of the nine wins two also had the opposition scoring 20 or more.

 

Well there you go.

Considering every team, including the Ravens, passed on him in the first round... what's your point? That NFL front offices can't read stats?

 

The knock on Jackson was he wasn't a complete QB. That and the fact his mom was his agent.

Exactly.  We've spent so much time focused on LJ, I really feel like if Harbaugh and the Ravens are smart they'll just keep feeding Ingram.

 

Dude's exactly the type of RB our D sucks against and he could run for 200 yards in this game.


they can get all the yards they want if the bills keep them out of the end zone. 
 

I think I seen a stat that Baltimore has not allowed a red zone TD over the last 3 games ouch if true.

Pete Prisco of all people is picking us as the upset special this week...predicts that both QBs will play well and the Bills win 21-20.

Have to say that if we hold the Ravens to just 20 points, we have a great chance to win this game and solidify that playoff spot! 

 

Man  Pete sure has turned the corner on the Bills this season  :thumbsup:

I have had Beasley on my bench all season. Refuse to start him because afraid to jinx him. I’m an idiot.

I relate to this so much.

 

I did the same with Singletary. Nabbed him with my last pick in the draft and he's never started a single day for me haha.

On the flip side I will sometimes start QBs who we are playing to enact the reverse jinx. It works!

To paraphrase...

 

We drafted the guy we wanted that best fit the organization we were building’ 

 

looks foolish? 

 

 

See that, I’d think drafting Lamar without having Greg Roman on your Staff might have looked foolish... Lamar is the prototype QB for that offense.

Still almost 2 to 1 wagers on Ravens -5.5 and simiarly the over @ 43.5, meanwhile Bills games have gone under 4 out of the last 5...dunno about you all but I am liking the way this line is shaping up throughout the week.

As long as the wind doesn’t create another Eagles game scenario. That might not play out for the Bills. I think the dry conditions will be better for the Bills defense than a rain or snow scenario.

Bills need to stop playing scared of wind. They drafted JA because his arm strength allows him to play in the conditions in Buffalo. So let him do it

Del Rio On Bills: Josh Allen Is The Key

CBS Sports Radio•December 5, 2019

The Buffalo Bills might be the quietest 9-3 team in NFL history. After all, it's December, and the Bills – the Bills! – are just one game out of first place in the AFC East. They've also won three straight and four of five. Buffalo is a darn good team, no? “The key is the quarterback,” former NFL coach and current NFL analyst Jack Del Rio said on Taz & The Moose. “Josh Allen has taken a couple steps forward. Can he continue that? That's the key. To me, they're a physical team, they're a tight team, they're a tough team, they've invested in their offensive line, they're going to run the ball, they're going to play good defense – to me, that's winning football.” Allen, Devin Singletary, and Frank

I love the Bills +5.5 (or better), although the more I read and hear about the Ravens the more I think this will be a very hard game for the Bills to win.  They've won eight straight, including several blowout wins over very good teams.  Their confidence has to be through the roof.  

 

I almost never bet the over/under.  I just think it's a complete crapshoot, with too many factors to accurately assess.

In the end, Jackson is on route to being the league MVP and Allen is up & coming.

 

Jackson is crushing it because the Ravens totally rebuilt and tailored their offense for him and gave him all the pieces he needs to run it at a high level.  Would he have succeed if the offense were more like what Josh Allen is being asked to run?  I think eventually, yes, but Lamar wouldn't be leading for League MVP today. 

 

McDermott doesn't want to say "we didn't draft Lamar because we weren't confident he could succeed in a more conventional NFL offense and that's what we wanted to run" because that could be used to create controversy as another way of saying "Lamar is a running back, not a quarter back"

 

It makes him give vague answers, but he's better off looking foolish than being made to look disparaging.

 

The other part is, again, what McDermott might call "DNA".  Josh had to come into a place with no pieces around him and be part of turning the culture around.  A lot of guys who come into that situation, have it turn them around instead and don't succeed.  "Talent is as talent does."  Lamar came in as a Heisman winner who was a Big Man On Campus around a strong college program and was added to a team with a long-time head coach and a long-term culture of success.  He's fit in well and developed well there.  Good for him, but I can understand why Josh's background of having to scrap and fight for everything chance he's had made McDermott and Beane feel he would have the right personality for what they needed last year.  I don't think that's foolish, but I understand why McDermott avoided spelling that out, too.

Dear Coach Sal,

32.5 million people watching on Thanksgiving in JerryWorld seems big time to me.  So does facing the 10-2 Ravens at home.

 

The Ravens will be the much bigger challenge, but not because it fits some arbitrary definition of "big time" - because they are a far better team than the Cowboys in every phase of the game and have a unique offense that requires a unique-to-the-week game plan to slow.

 

I think it's phrased very poorly, but what Preston may be trying to say is that the Bills offense is not yet equipped to win a game where they have to rack up a big score.  Yes, that rests on Josh Allen, but that also rests on our RB, WR, TE, OL, and coaching.  I see the Ravens as having a clear advantage at RB and TE, and an advantage in consistency of OL and WR play and coaching (playcalling).  We need our "best" to beat their "every game".

Unfortunately, Mike Preston has heard similar comments in the bedroom. His Roman order is on the way as we speak.
