Jesus really? Will Bills fans ever stop blaming refs??

I think many Bills fans think we get screwed a lot but truly the NFL officials have become the worst officials in sports- they miss far to many obvious calls( facemask and helmet to helmet) and call too many phantom calls- but they do it to everyone.

Caught the last few minutes and it was again difficult to watch.  The clock operator kept letting it run after incompletions.  Then, how the refs didn’t see the face mask infraction on Allen’s 4th down run still amazes me.  Didn’t really matter as Allen got the first down followed by a Beasley reception which got them closer than the half the distance penalty would’ve.  The pass to Knox was so close which was a bummer since he was open.  A more athletic TE might have been able to jump for it.

 

Finally, for those who thought Ford got better as the season went on, on the final play, he pushes the defender once with arms extended but then lets him go, forcing Josh to throw up a prayer where Cole B Smurf was outjumped for the ball by the DB.

 

Aarrgghh!  I don’t know why I let myself rewatch losses.

 

I said this in another post but that game really exposed where the Bills are, not weak exactly but not elite. We lost the line of scrimmage. Here's hoping the new additions will fix that.

At times he was, at other times I thought he was too cautious, but after the first New England game there's no one that can say he wasn't more mindful with the ball. Only 3 INTs & 3 lost fumbles in the final 13 games(Counting the playoff game). Less than .50 turnovers a game in his last 13 games is a HUGE improvement over the 12 games he played in 2018 and the first 4 in 2019 when he was averaging 1.38 per game. In the 13 game span I thought he played against some of his toughest competition so far, including a stretch last year that he played in his first prime time game(Thanksgiving on the road), then the Ravens, then at Pitt(Sunday Night), then at New England(Saturday evening game). That doesn't count playing a really good Denver defense the game before the Thanksgiving game. In those 5 games Josh played against the 2nd, 3rd, 6th, 10th & 11th best pass defenses.

 

He played a lot better after game 4 against the Pats*** last year, once he had a full 16 games played under his belt. He has keep improving, no one is saying any different, but he has definitely improved in the last 13 games over his previous 16 games. That's something everyone should be able to acknowledge. What I love the most is he plays his best when the game is on the line. In the 4th quarter of one score games(+/- 7 points) last year he was 36/63 for 522 yards with a 8.3 AVG 5 TDs 0 INTs and a 110.7 QB Rating. He raises his game when it means the most. We haven't had a QB that has been capable of that since Kelly was on the field. I don't see this kid failing, he's too much of a competitor to let that happen to him.

 

 

He was 3rd in the league in total fumbles with 16. Only two behind Daniel Jones who led the league....

 

Like I said, just because they didn't result in turnovers doesn't mean he wasn't careless with the football.

Well, on further review. 4th and Goal to beat the Pats and win the AFC East. Dawkins was the worst on that play. I mean epically bad. He had rushers on his left and right and he fell down on his face. Both of them became free rushers with a clear line to Allen. Had it been just Ford's guy he was pushed far enough to the outside that Josh could have just stepped up. But no, Dawk fall down. 
 

 

Also, Knox is one on one with McCourty and that's kind of open. 

Damn. He gets that ball to Knox there and he likely scores.

Does the NFL monitor the refs bank accounts to make sure they are not getting paid off? The opportunity is certainly there, just saying.

He had 14 fumbles in the regular season, the other 2 were in the playoffs game. Daniel Jones wasn't in the playoffs, so it would result in Josh being 4 behind him. Like I said he got better as the year went on, in this area also. 11 came in the first 9 games, the other 3 came in the final 7 games and obviously the 2 in the playoff game. If I remember correctly a few of these were fumbled snaps(Who's at fault?) and a few more were a result of defenders not being blocked and having free shots of Josh. Once again does he need to keep improving, he sure does, but just stating numbers doesn't tell the whole story. A story that showed him getting better at throwing less INTs(By a ton) and fumbling the ball less as the year went on.

They can not just monitor the accounts unless they have some reasonable proof that shenanigans is going on, and at that point they need the authorities to get involved

He went from 11 in the first 9 to 5 in the last 7..... not arguing it's not an improvement, but it's still a problem. Once he takes off and runs his ball security is still an issue.  He got away with another one against Houston as his knee was down less than half a second before the ball came out.

Please don't pay Dawkins...at least not elite LT money. He is a definite weak spot on the OL.

What kind of fool doesn’t pay in cash ? Bob Kraft might not know how to stay away from the cameras, but I’m sure he knows the proper way to hand off some cash.

A more athletic tight end that was 6’10” and had a 14’ wingspan.

 

Sure.

one of the more disappointing games of the season

 

I thought we were going to go into NE and smack them in the mouth but the opposite happened. game was there to win and the offense let us down in the end. Allen did not put in a franchise QB type performance and that 100% has to change next season.

Eh. Defense didn’t play great either..... For most of the game Brady made it look easy against them per the norm.

Allen has to play better.  All the other pieces are there to win 11 games or more. It's all on Allen and McD.

The defense has to play better too.  A lot of time they couldn't stop the opposing team from scoring afater we took the lead....Cleveland, Baltimore  and the game at NE and the playoffs against Houston are good examples...We would have otherwise been 8-0 on the road last season and won a playoff game on the road. 

 

The lack of pass rush definitely hurt the Bills in critical junction.

You got to put the cash in the bank at some point to pay bills or invest it into your stock portfolio. Follow the cash, that's how they got Al Capone eventually.
