How many drops?

Dropped TD by MacKenzie.

 

I didn't see the Brown pass deflected.

That was a very difficult play. Tough to call that a clear drop by McKenzie.

 

Nothing close to the drops by Knox today, and the sideline drop by Singletary.

He was inaccurate on two deep passes today. He was accurate on two deep passes. And one other deep pass was a miscommunication. That's a pretty average day for deep ball accuracy. Far from terrible. There were much worse problems on the offense today.

 

Great observation!  The deep balls to Beasley & Singleterry were on target and as Fouts noted if Singleterry runs through the catch it might have gone for 6.  I would also say that Allen had a 3rd accurate deep ball and that was the one he thew to Foster in which the Ravens DB clearly interfered.  If the DB doesn't interfere that's a catch.

Here's my problem with that route by McKenzie.  A more seasoned WR might have taken one more step to the inside (knowing Allen was breaking to the right) drawing the defender in before switching directions and heading to the sideline.  This would have gotten him another yard of room to work and made it impossible for the DB to close the distance and get a hand in there.  My guess is that this is what they'll talk about after watching film tomorrow.

Josh didn't look to run at all on that last play.  It parted right down the middle for him with nobody there in the middle.  Probably gets a 1st down.

I dont know.  Watching it live it looked like a bit more leading might have helped.  A big time WR catches that though.

Def not disputing that

 

Some mook (you know the same ones every damn week....but they are supposid fans) said it was a "inaccurate throw"

 

It was not a inaccurate throw.....the WR had a chance to make a play on the ball.....Brown does not "pluck" it.he does not extend his arms and go to the ball with his hands....Peters partially then defects it..Brown does not  make the play

 

We hae SEEN Duke make plays like this...because he shields the defender with his body and "squeezes" the ball to secure it.

 

THat is what is missing on this team

I would include the Foster Non-call PI play as sort of a “drop.” A good receiver goes up with strong hands and makes that catch. Go get the ball! 
 

there were a lot of drops, but the one that was the most frustrating was the Beasley one. One of the most athletic scrambles and throws you will ever see from a QB and then to place the ball perfectly on his hands in stride on a big third down. That was a real

disappointment. 

It was hard for Foster to do that while he was being pushed down by the defender.

 

Horible non-call by the officials.

After posting I sat here trying to think when the last time the Bills hit on a big time play like that.  It's a tough catch but it's one we see almost weekly.  They have to be able to make these plays to win.

No pass protection will do that to a QB


it wasn’t bad pass protection, they sent jail break blitzes and we tried to go for deep routes.  There were no quick slants to counter the blitz.  We send a massive blitz, ravens hit quick slant to TE for 60 yard TD.  That’s on the OC and J.A. for not recognizing the blitz and/or doing anything about it.

The line got abused today.  I agree though no screen passes, no quick slants to counter the pass rush was also a problem.

I wasn't even thinking of the Singetary one, I was thinking of the one that Knox caught one handed. The pass to Singletary I consider a wash. It was off by a fingertip. I didn't come away from this game thinking deep accurscy lost it for us. Our inability to handle a blitz killed us all day long. Whether that be on Allen or Daboll or whoever, a change is needed.

Singletarys drop would of been some solid yards, the corner bit on his juke pretty hard as he picked it up and took off. 

I thought the DB saw the ball on the ground and dove for it.  I haven't watched the broadcast yet so I may change my opinion.

 It hit him in the chest and was a great pass.  Not a drop, but it was right there.

And the last pass to Brown also appeared to be a drop.

Defender got his hand on the ball, not a drop!

Did he though?? I couldn't tell, I was coming to this forum to confirm.

 

It looked like the ball got to Brown to me.  Tight defense non the less.

Seriously Knox needs to spend this entire week infront of that jugs machine. If he could actually catch the ball, he could very good.

They were bringing an all out blitz and had sacked him 6 times in the game. He was definitely seeing ghosts and probably wanted to get rid of the ball as soon as possible. The o-line blocked really well on the last play but too little too late. I don’t blame him at all for not looking for a running lane.

I don't blame him either, but he will be sick when he sees the film.
