Recommended Posts

Last year's highlights...

 

Forgot about much of this including RayRay muffing the punt in the first quarter.

Bills offense really need to come out in the first quarter and look sharp. Offense can't sit back and wait until the end of 2nd qtr to start rolling.  Come out and have an effective first drive and also not leave any points out on the field.  Don't take the sack on 3rd and long inside the 30, not 3rd down dropped passes and then in 2nd half if the Bills get a lead, don't try to sit on the ball when there's still a lot of time left.  Bills just need more of a killer instinct instead of the lets keep the game close mentality they seem to run. 

You pretty much summarized the Texans.

Toss in keep the penalties to a bare minimum and giving up 3rd down conversions and you nailed us.

IF we come out hot then I think we win this game easily since it means 1) we put points on the board and 2) we will control the clock since we rarely have huge plays for TDs, more methodical drives. Assuming the defense does its thing, it will look like the Cowboys game. Unfortunately our offense is very hot and cold. we almost never come out hot and we often leave points on the board. I think we can still win an ugly game as we have all year. It really depends on how our defense handles their offense.

 

My prediction for the game is it will be ugly on offense and Daboll/Allen will have to put just enough drives together to score points and have the defense keep the game within reach. Fortunately this Houston team has also been streaky. If they come out rolling like they did against NE then itll be tough to keep up with them given our offense.

 

I think the Bills win a close one, low scoring game.

I believe that Duke Williams needs to see the field.

Why, because of the dancing and prancing he was doing?  

Remember, he flat out dropped a important one on 3rd down.

I thought he played pretty well... very active blocker in this game as well.  Made some tough catches on the sidelines.  He had a bad drop - but foster also had 0 catches on 4 targets.  

 

Considering Mckenzie seemed fairly dangerous with both speed and elusiveness on his runs and stuff (minus the drop), i'd probably have foster inactive?   I guess it depends on the gameplan, do you want to use roberts in the mckenzie role, williams as a conventional X/Z WR, and carry foster simply as a gunner? 

 

Where is the need more important?  Jumpstart the O with mckenzie?  Or core special teams with foster?

that's only if NE beats the Titans (most likely the 6th seed) I don’t believe NE can beat a Physical team like the titans. 

And if Tennessee stays alive, that makes it still possible (although HIGHLY unlikely) that we can host the AFC championship game! 

 

The only way we can host a playoff game is if it's against TEN.

I think its on ESPN too if that helps

The issue is that both are owned by Disney and need the same extra add on package.

 

I mean, I could use nfl bite but I want to watch it on my TV, not casting it with tons of lag.

No bc he caught 6 for 108 in the cold and rain despite the drop. What are you a high school principal?

Can't you just get  ABC  over the air with an antenna? Does anyone use an antenna anymore?

Best possible match-up for us, but it's still going to be tough.  We need the offense to bring it.

 

Now that Watt is back, the Bills have no chance.

I thought it was interesting that Knox was inactive for the game along with Beasley, Brown, Singletary and White. Was Knox nursing an injury or is it a sign of the value that the coaching staff puts on Knox? If Allen and Knox can put it all together they can be a good combo going forward.

Good to know that it is on ABC too. ABC is the most PITA channel for me to pick up with and antenna but I should be able to make it work. Backup will be on-line stream.

He's clearly the starter there - 65% of snaps vs. 30 or below for everyone else and trended up as the season went along.  Kroft being healthy helps add a 2nd TE who functions more do-all than someone like smith.

How is the offense going to get going when Watt blows our weak OL up? He was the NFL MVP  a few years ago.

I was pleasantly surprised by Sweeney’s performance yesterday. The announcers summed it up pretty well when they were noting that he would sit down in the right area of the field to present himself for the throw. That’s something that had been missing from the TE group. Dawson does pretty well coming across the field and going on the long ball, and perhaps it’s playcalling, but there doesn’t seem to be that “set up in the middle of the zone” play that has been run successfully with the tight ends aside from Sweeney yesterday.
