O-line failed the team today....

 

Offseason has to be all about the O. 

 

RT

Eric Moulds type WR

Starting to think another stud TE paired with Knox.

 

WE can play with anyone with our current D. Shaq Lawson is a must re-sign BTW

This team desperately need a solid #2 RB.... I agree RT #1 priority.

 

I like Geronimo Allison 6’3” 210 with some stretch the field ability on a cheap deal. Focus the draft on OL and defense.

Some may fault Allen for that last throw, but those are the throws I want to see more of from him; throws to covered receivers where he gives them the chance to make a play on the ball. Allen has really worked hard to protect the ball, but I think it has translated to overthrown balls and an aversion to throwing those 50/50 balls.

I think he will gradually get more comfortable making those throws and we need to get him another weapon that can win more of those too.

 

 

 

The whole if "if ifs and buts were candy and nuts ..........."  Allen could have put it a little more in front of him.  Maybe Brown could have fought more.  Also let's face it, Peters is no slouch.  He's shut down much better recievers than Brown and I'm not knocking Brown when I say that.  Really the penalty a couple plays before turned the heat up on that last drive.  We played a tough team right down to the wire.  No shame in that.

This... we had 10 days to prepare a gameplan. Ravens #1 blitzing team, and their weakness has been over 5 yards per carry on runs to the outside. 

 

So what is Dabolls script? 5 step drop backs, and slow hand off on almost like a delay. Maybe its just me but a lot of our handoffs looked very slow developing.

 

We only had a couple runs to the outside.... 1 of which Singletary busted for 30-40 yards.

 

Hey how about we have the ball on the half yard line to goal... so we do a DEEP hand off to Gore? to try to run outside? this is so wrong on so many levels.... If its to singletary, I can understand a bit... or if its a quick hitter off center with Gore I am fine with it.... but also maybe just sneak?

 

This is exactly why I don't understand Daboll.  Teams that have an obvious bad weakness, he almost never exploits them.  Why no jet sweeps this week?  Why was Singletary not used more on the type of runs that he busted for gains?  Its like we find something that works and he treats it like a trick play that only works once a game.

Just for perspective. The bills went toe to toe with the AFC#1 seed, the week after they beat the NFC#1 seed, who today beat the NFC#2 seed by scoring 1 zillion points. 

 

We may not be Super Bowl favorites, but we’re going to the playoffs, and we’re not going to be an easy out once we get there. Also, we’re winning the next 3. Take it to the bank.

It happens, we had lots of calls go our way. 

What bad or missed calls went our way? This argument only works if there were equally egregious errors on both sides.

The only questionable one was the Earl Thomas unnecessary roughness, but he deserved it cause he’s a dick.

Hell of a game by your defense, and a nice comeback. Hopefully Allen’s ankle was just a minor tweak.

 

if the Chiefs can keep it together today, your Bills are definitely capable of taking the division and grabbing a bye.

The truth is usually in the middle, there were some plays Daboll called that just had little chance of working. That happens, but what I struggle with is when he goes back to the well time and time again when he needs to except that what he drew up on the whiteboard blew up on the field.

 

He also called some really good plays. Early in the second half we were facing a 3rd and less than 5 and he called a great run play to the right and our Guard - yes, #70 Ford, looked outside where there was no one to block, spun in a complete circle, and let the defender that was actually sitting in his inside gap run right by him and destroy the play from behind. A bit early to call him a bust, but he has no right to be on the field right now, and I do not care where he was drafted.

 

I think Ford was pretty brutal this game no matter where they had him, but I will wait for some deeper analysis by better men than I before I say for certain.

There are teams where we can play tough D and grind and then there are teams where you need to be perfect and Baltimore, NE, and probably KC are on the have to be perfect list.  If we are just saving that perfect game for the playoffs as long as they pull it out then I'm fine with that.

None at all. 

 

I agree with you on that last pass as well. If Allen hung that ball about 2-3 feet more out in front of Brown that could have been a TD. Happy to see this team taking high level competition to the wire. Something we have not seen in such a long time. The future is very bright.

Not sure if you comprehended what I posted. Was just saying I like Allen trying to throw those 50/50 balls. Really was not focusing on Brown's play as it was as I said a "50/50" against a really good DB.

Gentlemen:  I hope any questions/doubts anyone had about the quality of the Bills is silenced. The BUF D did more than others vs LJ.  It is interesting to read all the comments from you guys re the BUF play calling. Our Ravens board was going ballistic with the Ravens calls, also. We saw more garbage/gimmick stuff today than we’ve seen all year from the Ravens. Much of that, I think, was because of the success BUF was having in slowing down LJ. 

We all agree that the BUF OL ought to donate today’s paycheck to Josh Allen’ masseuse and accupuncturist. I said on Sat that I was less than impressed with Ford on the OL. That was Re-enforced today. 

Other random thoughts:
Singletary is a nice back..maybe not a bell-cow, but good. 

Edmunds should be a Pro-Bowl LB for quite a while. Just needs consistency. 
Micah Hyde likes to hit people. 
Ed Oliver has Beast potential. 
Beasley is a PITA for opposing D’s. 
 

Overall, BUF should be proud of what you have in the Bills. Young & talented. Hope for many more years of BUF-BAL showdowns. 
 

Now let’s go root on KC. 
 

Nice take except the bills board here have quite a few gentlewomen too just sayin’ lol  in any case thanks for posting 🏈

O-LINE SUX!!!!!!!!

 

Key to the game - BLOCK!!!!!

 

This game was there to win.   Good job by defense.  Offense is back to crap.   I hope McDermott rips that OL arse.   They were HORRIBLE.

Just saw CLE challenged a non DPI call and got it reversed. Didn’t even look as bad as ours. McD should have challenged that non call

I want to hear McDs answer on this....

 

Its all contact by the defender, no contact by Foster. If they were both playing a hands game fine, but that was 100% Defense.
