Bills Among Favorites Says Ravens Beat Guy/Columnist

Recommended Posts

Agree with almost all he writes, except this: "Another is the Ravens have a major advantage over Buffalo at the quarterback position with Lamar Jackson over Josh Allen." I question that. At this point, I would say they're about even. Jackson is a better runner, and Allen is a better passer.--but there is not much separation either way. I would say its about even right now.

Wow, there's a guy not afraid to make bold statements.  

 

Good to see someone outside of Buffalo paying attention.

Jackson was third in the league in passer rating. If Allen had been third, the Bills would have won the Super Bowl.  Hard to say Allen is the better passer.

It’s all in the game they are asked to execute and the players that surround them. How well did Jackson’s passing game help him in the playoffs?

So true, but I think Jackson will be forced to adjust after a year of film. Between the hashes and the TE stuff up the seams will be mostly taken away, and he’ll have to grow in his game, as does Josh. A lot on the QB’s, and a lot on the coaching staffs. Hard to tell right now.

Don't know about Klein being a "defensive lineman" or Diggs being "a big tall receiver" but the overall sentiment is appreciated

I love the love. And I think he's right. Pretty much with everything in the article. A lot can change,  but I think it is where things look right now.

Some interesting points in article made even better without multiple ads of questionable truth like many websites.

 

Quote

They already had a strong defense led by Tre’Davious White, who might be the best cornerback in the league. They also have middle linebacker Tremaine Edmunds, who, like White, is young and a centerpiece of the defense.

Yes only AFC CB who had no TDs against him with significant snaps last year.  I am not sure I would say it led by him.

 

Quote

He is big, tall and can make plays on the inside with his route-running or outside with his speed. The Gaithersburg native has had over 60 catches in four of his first five seasons, including 63 for 1,130 yards and nine touchdowns last year — his second consecutive season over 1,000 yards.

Well one more season like that he will match Stevie Johnson although not in height. He is tall however compared to Bills WRs except Duke Williams but not very tall.  Saw him at event and was close enough to tell he is not a complete 6' being at least an inch shorter than me at 6'0.5".  

 

Quote

One difference is that the Ravens still don’t have a legitimate No. 1 receiver, and the Bills now have Diggs. Another is the Ravens have a major advantage over Buffalo at the quarterback position with Lamar Jackson over Josh Allen. Both are young and growing.

I still think Lamar Jackson is more RB than QB and he needs to improve a lot to prevent better teams from neutralizing 

 

Quote

They’re as good as any team in the AFC now, and with a little luck and improved play from Allen, they could go to the conference title game.

Yes it really comes down to luck and luck like bad calls by zebras is hard to overcome.  The only way to do so it to be so good the issues are not speed bumps.

This reads like a 6th grader w ADHD wrote it. 

Nice to get some respect - but this is all over the place 

 

ADHD has nothing to do with writing style.  Many professional writers have that issue.  It does seem to make a difference in posters who write like they are doing tweets and IMs.

Iiii think you took that a little litteral.

Like, if you say something smells like crap, it may not ACTUALLY smell like crap - but it gives you the idea it smells bad...

It’s been gaining some steam as the offseason has rolled along. Right after the season ended Adam Schein proclaimed buffalo as the favorites in the East.  Dan Orvlosky was on Espn the other day after the diggs trade. He talked of how he thought of the bills as the favorites to win the East even before the diggs move and Brady leaving NE. He said he now considers them legitimate contenders in the AFC. 
 

It’s all just lip service at this point, but my goodness it’s refreshing!

He said Diggs was a big and tall WR. Was he meaning figuratively? Because Diggs isn't big at all.

I lost it when he wrote this:

I still think long term JA will be better than Lamar. Right now it's fair to say they have a significant advantage at QB, but in 2-3 years I think Josh will be upper echelon and Lamar will be on that second tier of guys like Phillip rivers in his prime. (not saying his style is similar at all to rivers just where he will rank among QBS)

I defer to Mark Twain on this issue: ""There are lies, damned lies and statistics." . . . Jackson stats as a passer defy his reality as a passer.

Well, he’s right.

And the running back position is going to be added to, so the Bills will probably rival the Ravens there. 
The Ravens don’t scare me at all. I look for Jackson to have a very big regression as teams have a years worth of tape and can study schemes which slowed him down. 
KC is the hurdle now.

The Ravens pound the ball over and over and then surprise with a play action with not enough in coverage. Jacksons rating is inflated by big plays off of that. Teams were unable to stop them from running all year and they took good advantage(Jacksons legs are amazing and open up his passing but that doesn't make him a great passer). When a team finally did stop the run and Jackson was forced to pass, he looked like a bottom of the league passer.
