Bills put up the most offensive yards on Wildcard Weekend with 425

Recommended Posts

Bills identity needs to be running the ball!!!! Singletary is legit, Grab a guy like Jordan Howard as an RB2.

 

Build an amazing OL. I still say move Ford to RG, Feliciano to LG. Draft a road grader RT.

 

5 of the top 6 rushing teams are on to the next round of the playoffs!!!

I think this is further evidence that coaching philosophy hurts the offensive output more than the actual offense.  
 

We moved the ball.   Only thing that changed was the playcalling once we got into FG range.  
 

It’s been this way all year.  

 

I agree, I don't understand it. Is this because a lack of trust in Allen or maybe McD doesn't have the killer instinct to finish a team.

 

We have been in situations where a first down would end the game, yet we handoff 3 times and punt.

 

I hope there is some maturing in the coaching mindset as well.

It's just the way he finished the game, he was steller in first half and he did make some plays to get us tied but it's hard to forget his intentional grounding, 4th down sack and lateral to no one. I thought Allen played well yet could have been much better in the 2nd half.

You mean when he had two defensive players on a free rush to him with less than 2 seconds to do anything?

 

Yeah - that's not really on Josh.

Allen was better than most give him credit for. he was the reason we were in the game.  No one else. He ran for 91 yards and passed for 264 and we are critical of the few other plays.  A block from Morse or a non call on ford we win the game and gets the hero. 


It was Knox who missed the block.  Not Morse.  But you are correct

The grounding was a deflected pass with terrible blocking, the lateral actually stopped the clock, the 4th down sack was terrible blocking and we should have been punting in the first place and we tied the game after that. He had issues, those plays weren’t why we lost...

There were 3 blockers who could’ve taken that guy and sprung Allen for another long gain.

Settling for FGs was the bummer

 

Truth.

 

Gotta punch more of those in.

 

Drove the length of the field and knocked on the door enough, but play calling and poor execution kept the door closed.

I'm not blaming Josh alone for the loss.

I agree on all points. This team needs to use the next couple year's of first round draft capital to draft offensive players. 4 out of the last 5 first round picks have gone to the defensive side of the ball, the fifth of course being Josh. 0 offensive skill players or Offensive lineman in the first round out of the 5 and only 2 this decade(Spiller & Watkins). The last offensive lineman picked in the first round was Eric Woods in 2009. Only 4 offensive non QB players drafted in the first round since Lee Evans was drafted in 2004. No wonder the defense & offense are where they are.

Allen's 372 total yards almost beat every other teams output. But he's horrible and has to go!!!!🙄

 

how many points do you get for yards?

 

the Bills gained more yards than the Giants IN SB XXV too btw.

 

He just came up small late like he did vs the other good teams we played. He had a chance vs Baltimore and NE twice and did Likewise.  He's got a LOT of work to do.

 

The whole team needs to learn to beat the good teams.  1-4 vs playoff teams. We play 6 next year.

I love this!!! First we won't know how many playoff teams we play next year until next year's regular season is over otherwise we would've only played 4 this year(Dallas, Pats****x 2 & Ravens). I also love that people still insist on trying to predetermine how tough or easy a schedule is before FA & the Draft are over and the first several weeks of the new season have been played. 5 of the 12 playoff teams from last year failed to make the playoffs, including the Super Bowl runner up. If you think coming up small in your first playoff game, on the road, is when you have 372 total yards on the day the offense gained 425, well hey that's on you not me. Play calling and offensive line penalties killed more drives than Josh Allen did and that's a fact. Lastly I'm glad you had to go back 40 years for your example,fail, but at least you know your memory is still there!!! I think you thought we were really going somewhere this year because you seem hurt. It would've been nice to get that first playoff win under our belt, but make no mistake this year was a steppingstone to the next several years.

 

EDIT: Forgot the Iggles were the 5th playoff team.

No it was Morse #60.  Completely whiffed.  Watch again.

Actually both are correct, but Knox missed first.

Honestly they had 3 people that needed to block one and nobody did it. Reminded me of the old story:

 

"This is a story about three people named  Somebody, Anybody and Nobody. There was an important job to be done and Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it. Somebody got angry about that. Everybody thought Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn’t do it. It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have"

 

I mean I don't care which of them blocked the guy but one of them needed to. It seemed like each of them thought the others would do it but nobody did.

Daboll stays!

He has to be the most inconsistent play caller in the league.  He was aggressive in the first half and crawled in a shell for the second half.  His first down play calls in the second half were horrible and led to a lot of third and long situations.  They had one outside screen call to Singletary that went for 38 yards and he never ran it again.  He has been a problem all year. I hope Cleveland hires him.

Predicting strength of schedule is sketch I admit. But Seattle, San Fran, KC should be tough.

 

Josh made some really good plays and some clunkers.  What I was referring to was our last drive in regulation and OT. Throwing one up for grabs to a double covered FB and making an ill advised lateral and taking sacks and int grounding and not winning is "coming up small" when it matters most IMHO.  

 

Teams gain the most yards and lose every week. No need to go back 30 years. Was just a memorable example.

 

I am disappointed. It was such a winnable game right there for the taking but was unrealized. When we make the playoffs I want to win. I admit it.   I hope you are right about the springboard season thing but it is far from guaranteed as you pointed out 5 playoff teams last year did not return.

Yay Bills! What a totally meaningless stat.

 

Just WIN, baby!*  The latter is ALL that ever matters, especially in playoff games.

 

* as long as you get at least 300 yards according multiple posters on board.

points, my friend, points

Drew Brees didn’t score many at home with a guy who caught 145 balls and fumbled at midfield in the 2nd half also.....  ooops not supposed to mention great QBs who make the exact same errors.....

Putting up the most yards against not only the worst defense in the playoffs, but one of the worst in the league doesnt really mean anything to me

Statistically we weren't one of the great offenses of the league so it should have balanced out, right? I mean its not like we had the K Gun offense out there.
