Tremaine Edmunds and the run game

Recommended Posts

This was a tough game. The rams depend on screens and play action. Before they gashed us with the run we played more disciplined. But once they busted off a few it got the linebackers to bite more on the run and opened it up.

 

I think with a full week after the injuries and some more reps after being out they will improve.

 

But ya hes not as strong as his draft position would indicate he should be

Bills 100% should draft a MLB first round next year and move Tre outside. Upgrade two linebacker spots with one move. And don't have to dish out a huge contract to Milano. 

 

Edmunds as a MLB is horrendous.

 

lol right now I’d keep Milano over edmunds . He’s by far the better player 

 

Edmunds has a lot of work to do

No way I'd get rid of Milano. Put him out there with Dodson where he only has to play his responsibilities and not Edmunds' also.

He has been a poor tackler in both games this season. It is something to worry about moving forward. Tackling in open space is supposed to be his strength. I'm going to eat some crow - Milano has been more important to the defense so far this year. We have to find a way to re-sign him.

Edmunds has been a dud this season. The excuses get old. He's a huge liability against the run. 

 

His mediocre play against the run isn't a concern. The concern is he is missing tackles on receivers in open space and isn't covering as well as he was last year. Right now he's leaning on his length to cover up pass lanes but he isn't really doing anything else.

 I’ve been told it’s a “litmus” test for people’s football IQ if you think Edmunds isn’t the better/ more important player vs Milano.   Be careful, you are questioning the all mighty McBeane.

First off, awesome win by the Bills as they beat a good team and faced a lot of adversity.

 

While there were a lot of positives, there were also a lot of negatives.

 

One of them was Tremaine Edmunds, especially in the run game.

 

Seemed to me like there were a lot of missed tackles, not getting off blocks, and missing the holes.

 

For anyone who knows the game more the game than me, would that be a fair assessment today?

 

Go Bills, huge win at the end of the day.

 

 

I saw it the same way.  Troubling.  

 

 He rarely hits people with authority.

Edmunds is more important to the scheme but this year he is getting outplayed by Milano. Last year that was not the case. He has seemingly regressed.

With upcoming games against Jacobs and Henry, they need to get it figured out this week. The DL was dominated today only reinforced as our top three tacklers on D were our CB’s and Safety. Hopefully Edmunds can heal but the Rams had major running lanes today.  Need much much more from Hughes, Murphy and Oliver!

I don’t agree with you on last year, he was pretty bad last year too, but made some flash plays people get enamored with.  He’s built to play outside, McD is jamming a square peg in a round hole.  The honest truth, he’s a great athlete, not a football player.  He has no instincts at all.   He’s just about opposite of Josh Allen who is a pure football player that needed refinement, still needs more btw, vs a guy who has all the tools and no football instincts at all.  Allen has grown and his physical gifts are a huge bonus, all Edmunds has is athletic ability.  He’s a Whaley type pick and I’m going to proclaim it, he’s a bust.  You might as well move him outside and see if that will work, but he’s not the guy they planned for.

I think some of the fans here are completely clueless about how good the Rams' offense is. 

 

I hate running into those types in the wild, unless I'm completely drunk in which case I'd change the subject to something less complex than LB play and the opponents game plan and/or skill.

while i agree, the Rams are no slouch, if we are going to beat the Patriots this year, we need to shore up our run defense.

D-line is not doing their job.

Can't argue that. I think eventually Mc will come to his senses a slot Edmunds outside. Then sign or draft a real Mike.

Neither is Edmunds

Can't back the line if the line isn't keeping o-linemen occupied.

This continues to be an issue with his game. After a certain point, you can't use his youth and inexperience as the excuse for too much longer.  He's batting goose eggs in a D where the LBs rack up heavy tackle stats.  

Patrick queen is a young rookie and showing out so I’m with you a hi draft pick and in his 3 year.

I hate it but I’m with you on this. 3 years in he is who he is I wouldn’t say his a bust unless your thinking that because how hi he was drafted but his sure not a play maker. I posted about Patrick queen for the Ravens his a rookie and showing out so enough about his age. P.s New England is running the ball hard. 🤫

he’s a good not great player, and filling a big role in a strange season while injured. and was playing against one of the better play designers and play callers.

 

its a tough league to play consistently excellent defense in on your best days. At the moment the decks slightly stacked against him. Hopefully he gets healthy, gets good reps and settles in.
