I agree that we need a better pass rush and running game. But I feel more like the way to get there is a true CB2 (coverage leads to sacks), and better o-line play. I'd like to see us draft CB2, OL, DL. then a speedy RB.

The scheme on D was so weak. A free 7 yards on every play. Safeties 20 yards off the los. I'd rather attack and risk getting burned once in a while than play a soft, scared, nonaggressive style defense. It's ineffective and demoralizing for the players, not to mention frustrating as he'll to watch. Another good cb would be great but that defensive scheme sucked.

We disguised an inability to run the football enough through 19 games to be entitled to play tonight. But we were exposed by KC.  Adding to this,  Chiefs were confusing Josh while blanketing everyone

1st....Congratulations to the Bills for their season......You have a great QB.....you'll be competing for YEARS.  I remember when Mahomes lost this same game in 2018....it sucked...but you'll be back

I’m heartbroken, as we all are. But if I told you before the preseason that never happened we would seriously compete in the AFC Championship Game I think most of us would have taken that as a good re

Gutless approach by McD and Frazier ensured our defeat.

 

Can't beat a team of this caliber playing the way they did.

The FGs were inexcusable and the gameplan was flawed, but that’s not why we lost.  They have Mahomes, Hill and Kelce and we don’t.  It was a wake up call.

Considering how poor we looked on both sides of the football, it's still a surprise we put up as many points as we did - even if some were garbage time points.

 

I think we were shown that we aren't quite ready to compete at this level. We don't have enough talent yet throughout the roster, and we were lacking answers on the coaching side as well.

 

It has still been a great season, no doubt about it, but today has left a bitter taste.

Those 4th and short were all on McDermott. He made those calls to kick FGs. Yeah, I would have called a designed QB run on that 3rd down. His decision to kick FGs made absolutely no sense to me

 

That play was disappointing for sure, but their D was owning us at that point. As they did all night - receivers blanketed, Josh on the move, no run game (per usual).  This just in, KC is good - gotta score, score, score...

1. Coaching staff had their worst game of the season. Daboll's playcalling was mediocre at best and piss poor at worst. Allen should have been used on the 4th down plays instead of FGS. Frazier and the defense looked like they didnt prepare at all, like it was 1960s NFL when teams just played their simple playbook and watched no tape on another team. How could they possible be that clueless? McD's decisions to go for FGs just handed the momentum to the chiefs every time. You are in the championship game VS the best team in the league, VS the MVP at QB. Why the hell are playing so conservative.

 

2. A few small plays in this game that seemed not so important at the time but I think were huge. Bass's missed PAT. Didn't matter scorewise but psychologically was a bad omen. The missed punch by the KC lineman should have been an ejection and would have really changed their defensive scheme. Singletary's drop was an absolute gut punch. He would have run for 20 yards plus on that play. It just killed their momentum and probably contributed to Josh being even more under pressure and nervous.

 

 

If you think that punch was missed you are crazy, it was ignored. But I agree with your point...

This game made me feel very unhappy about our future.  Mahomes, Kelce, and Hill look like they are playing a different sport than anyone else, and all of them are going to be in KC for a long time.  Really dislike how this Chiefs team bodes for the Bills in the future.


Diggs and Allen kind of looked like that at times against other teams this year. There were multiple games where Diggs was practically mocking the opposing secondary. 
 

But I get your point, it’s the best offensive trifecta in the league. I still don’t totally trust Hill though. In addition to beating all members of his family apparently, he just has that mean nervous energy about him. He flipped out on a coach last week but it was apparently all good or whatever, and he just kind of looks like he has a screw loose after some plays, including today. Not rooting for the guy to be the next AB but I don’t know if I trust him to be a contributor for years to come.

Not not like we were the only team that couldn't stop them this year (or the past 3 years).  Kelce is a problem for the whole league, especially this D that can't stop a TE regardless...

Why can’t we cover good tight ends? Where was our O line? What happened to the D? Coaching?? I have questions ... and I’m mad. It was a nice run but the ending sucked. Go Bills. 


I’ve been very critical of McDermott tonight but at least he said “we didn’t coach our best game” afterward.  Respect his ability to recognize/say that even though the loss is still fresh

The FG’s were bad in hindsight. But let me defend McD.

 

McD is watching this offense tonight that had to work for every single yard. They were totally shut down. I think he was thinking he had to get the points he could get, hope (pray?) that the D got a stop or a TO down the stretch, and extend the game to stay within striking distance.

They have an offensive line that gives Mahomes time, we gave josh squat...

Daboll was really dissapointing. We needed to really bring in the kitchen sink to win, and we played way to safe.

 

We played scared.....

Maybe that's why the Chargers took a rain check. All our coaches did terrible tonight. Leslie having no answer for Kelce. Sean settling for FG's against the most dynamic offense in the league. Daboll being inconsistent Daboll. It all came to a head tonight. And I'm sure Josh had his dad on his mind. We had a great season. One we haven't seen in a quarter of a century. We'll be ready next year.

This is bull####. We were 13-3, the #2 seed and waxed a bunch of good teams. We ***** laid an egg tonight and it absolutely sucks.

Blaming Daboll isn't accurate here. KC covered our receivers well tonight. Josh had nowhere to throw hardly. As for Frazier? I'm not sure if it was his horrid gameplan or lack of execution or both. But McDermott........twitter roasted him more than I think we could

Why couldn't the top paid CB in the NFL cover KC WR's tonight. Your not going to see Deion or Revis covering a teams 2nd or 3rd passing options. White needs to cover Hill and Kelce should have be bracketed. Edmunds was pure garbage tonight, he makes the pro bowl look like a shut show. Oliver was a major waste of space in this game and our O-line needs major upgrades in the interior. Anyone who thinks we are 1 good draft and FA away for beating KC is smoking some good *****. We need some major upgrades to even be close to challenging KC.

The Bills were good most of the season when they got deep in enemy territory. But Daboll could not dial up anything tonight when the field tightened up. If he had this would have been a shoot-out. Maybe we still lose...But it would have been a lot closer. 😎

The thing that burns me more than anything is that the Browns gave KC more of a game than we did. KC didn't move the ball at will against them like they did us. Beane saw that we needed a playmaking WR and got him last year. Who does he decide to go after this year?

Hence why we shouldn’t have settled for FG’s...kiss of death against the Chiefs

Yep.  We actually would have been better off trying to run the ball more, take time off the clock and prevent KC defense from pinning their ears back. Rumors that Josh Allen kills the blitz are greatly exaggerated.
