McDermott: Josh Allen 'tried to do too much' in loss

Recommended Posts

Allen had 372 total yards.  356 if you take out the pass reception for a TD.

 

I'm sure he's going on impressions and emotions right now and he'll settle in after he watches the film, but that lateral was a standout as a horrible play, so I'm sure it was on his mind.

anything other than a handoff into the a gap is radical football for McDermott  Kid was trying to make a play  He didnt throw him under the bus when he went full Supeman on some of those wild 4th down sneaks  How about your defense comes out in the 2nd half next time

The lateral resulted in the ball going out of bounds and stopping the clock which the bills needed as we were out of time outs and had no way to stop clock. 

 

Personally I think that was allens true intent to get it to knox to go out of bounds. 

 

Foolish maybe, but he got it out of bounds and so it was beneficial...

 

Why all the super analysis?

How could a QB be defined as trying to do too much when his coaches put Pat Dimarco in as the X receiver for multiple plays in overtime.

 

Then when they take him out and put Singletary in as the X - Josh hits him for 14 and a 1st down.

 

Stand up there and blame yourself coach.  Shameful!!

This needs to sting for all of them, especially the coaching staff

Ok, Let's try and go for it on 4 and 27 with 3 TO's?  MCD, WTF man?  We are so lucky we even got to OT.

All good questions and should be asked, but I honestly don't think McD intended to throw Allen under the bus

Probably not, but he should have shouldered any criticism or blame directly. I'm proud of the team, they play with a lot of heart and they gave it their all. Josh Allen was practically the entire offense tonight, if he tried to do too much that is entirely the coaches fault. For McD to say what he did is weak and completely inexcusable to me.

Run the friggin ball in OT and we win. Period. End of story. Allen tried to do much? Sure, but you set him like he had to!

I suspect you're correct but even if he didn't it's yet another indication of how he evaluates offense incorrectly.

I didn't get the rationale for the overturn, they just acted like it was never called a rd instead of a legitimate reason for overturning it.

Frank Gore  has served well as mentor for Singletary.  But TJ Yeldon had some nice plays last week vs Jets, and he is a large body. Why no TJ tonight? He should have been the second option instead of Gore.

 

 

Fumbles.

 

Frank Gore had ZERO all season.

 

That's why he kept getting touches...........trying to avoid mistakes because this pathetic offense has no room for error wrt turnovers.

It's not like he threw any picks. I take your point and it was frustration from mcdermott I thought. I thought he was being honest but it was less diplomatic than I had heard from Mcdermott previously.

Great point.  You punt the ball.  And he has the nerve to call Allen out?

There's a recording of a mic on the head ref.  He said the Texans player did an oopsie so no TD.

You could also call it deflection from the other issues, but he's just come onto the podium after a very disappointing loss and has been asked specific questions.

He should be frustrated with himself and taking the blame squarely, the coaches lost the game if anyone is to blame.

A very strange sequence

Because McDermott specifically and without being prompted brought it up in his presser

Amazing the Bills and McD couldn't beat this team.

 

 

They wouldn't have beaten this team with the way they played in ANY of their last 4 regular season games either though.

 

They've been sh*t for over a month now and folks been whistling past that graveyard of L's like it didn't mean anything acting like they could just turn on that 9-3 team and Thanksgiving Day offense whenever they needed it.

This is, unfortunately, really on-point.  McDermott and his coaching staff need to Cowboy Up and shoulder some blame for this.

That's even worse IMO.  The ONLY place McD needed to address this was with Allen privately.  And given the FACTS of how this game went and all the places you could legitimately point the finger of blame, it was deeply unfair to throw Allen under the bus which is exactly what McD did here.  I'm not sure it matters much whether he meant to or not.

 

Once the game was over and if we're to believe in this "process" of McD's then we need to see it in action after a disappointing loss.  The ONLY thing to say publicly is that it was a disappointing loss and we have to learn from it and grow.  And in fact this is the correct thing to say because going forward the Bills can build off this.  McD screwed up here and hopefully it will just go away.

That's because you and Daboll put it all on him in the 4th quarter and overtime.

 

And he looked bad...really bad.  I have zero confidence Allen can win a game by passing late in the 4th quarter.  His passes over 20 years downfield have to improve if he's going to succeed.

I think it will probably follow Allen around like the "inaccuracy" thing for a while or the "seeing ghosts" for Sam Darnold.

He didn't call out Allen. His quotes are being taking out of context to generate clicks.
