Week 8: Patriots at Bills

So Cam was benched does he stay benched?

 

I don't think so.  Unless he is harboring an injury we don't know about.  SF had the better scheme and players on Sunday.  I fully expect a spirited effort this week from the Patriots.  To quote Barry Switzer, yes that Barry Switzer when he was the coach of Oklahoma preparing to play Nebraska, "we will just have to out-athlete them".

He was announced as the starter immediately following yesterday’s game

It'll be interesting to see if the Bills D game-plan is similar to the Chiefs game-plan to basically take away (in this case) the running game and make Cam and the relatively ineffective Pats passing game beat us.

 

On O, having Brown back healthy would be a huge lift.  We were super competitive in both games last year against the Pats and just came up short.  And that was with the Pats having all their defensive starters.

 

My gut says don't be too confident, but my mind and looking at the state of each team's rosters has me saying we take this!

Probably a "stop the bleeding and let's not destroy this guy's confidence" move by Billy boy.

I hate to call this a "statement" game but that's what I think it is next Sunday.  The Bills look to be the superior team although they haven't played up to their potential for the past 3 weeks.  Chalk it up to a lot of issues, interruptions in the schedule, injuries, and such.  Maybe the defense pulled out of their funk in the second half yesterday?  And the offense needs to finish drives with TD's and not shoot themselves in the foot with penalties, some questionable play calls, and poor execution.  But this is a game they should win against the Patriots. 

 

We know what NE is likely to do here.  On offense focus on a running game with Newton and the RB's mixing in some short passing while running some clock.  And on defense bringing pressure, a spy on Allen, and scheming to take away the over the top passes while making Josh take short and check down throws.  The big thing is absolutely none of this should be a surprise or a secret.  Much of it they've done for years against the Bills with great success.  But this time the team has much more talent on offense than in the past.  So there is absolutely no excuse for the coaching staff on both sides of the ball to not have a decent game plan ready to counter these strategies and the team ready to execute it.

I think this game is going to be a battle royale. The Bills want to take control of the division and defeat their nemesis, the Pats are pushed into a corner and realize a loss to the Bills will likely spell the end of their divisional rein.

Combination of last year and this year says we can beat this team and probably easily... but will we? I for one am getting exhausted by the back and forth of these Bills.

Newton's throwing motion looks like it did last season when he was playing with a right shoulder injury.  Maybe all the running in the first few weeks has him injured again.  He was routinely bouncing passes in front of open receivers.  Nothing about his performance yesterday has me worried about the upcoming game.  The only thing that bothers me right now is Dabol's play selection in the red zone. Beasley was open at the goal line repeatedly with no targets. Running Singletary into the weak side of the formation with no lead block failed repeatedly also. It was one of his worse games as a play caller.  Hopefully, he sees the need to change things up to play Bellicheat.

Is that on Daboll or Allen? I’d say good job by Daboll getting players open, bad job by Allen finding the open man.

Of course we get NE coming off two brutal home losses.  Like they won’t be super motivated to get things right.  

 

But seeing as the Bills have lost a zillion games to NE and McDermott hasn’t beaten the hoodie, Buffalo’s motivation to win should trump anything from the Pats side. They’ve been our daddy for way too long.  i want to see a pummeling

Would you prefer the Patriots have won and be closer to us for the division?

 

Motivation is not measurable and plays a part, sure. But........

Belichick iw now something like 43-61 when Brady isnt his starting QB.   No clue what happens Sunday as I dont think the Bills are world beaters but Kraft looks to have kept the wrong guy.

The Bills have enough talent on offense to beat NE, but not sure they have the coaching to out scheme the master. And if the D-line doesn't show up again, Burkhead will gobble them up.

at least 5 on the LOS all day with run and pass blitzes. Get Josh running early so he settles himself down. Take what the D gives you. Dont be afraid of Gilmore, lots of comeback routes with Diggs.

I mean this is basically the division right here. We win, go to 4-0 in the East and pretty much doom the Pats to a 3rd place finish. Then, we will just have to worry about the Dolphins who are starting a rookie all of a sudden. It's right here, boys! 

 

 

 

 

No pressure..
