McBeane is sold on what we have.  What we have is the plan

Right now the Bills have:   Singletary: I'm not sold on him.   Moss: Also not sold on him. Antonio Williams: Looked ok in spot duty, but only 12 carries.  Can he block?  Not sold o

I think the plan is to not worry if you are sold or not.

On the goal line vs San Fran, Allen may have got pegged for the fumble but it was on Moss.

Wade: Intriguing non football guy. Fast but old and still learning the game. Likely stuck on the practice squad again.

Breida:  JAG.

Taiwan Jones: Less than JAG

 

So far no UDFA RB's added.  

 

So what's the plan?  Will Oline pickups improve the run blocking?  Will they grab another team's castoff? Is there a Fred Jackson type UDFA just waiting to be signed?

 

 


writes off singletary, moss and Breida but thinks the answer would be a UDFA....

It happened in the playoff game vs the Colts, but he also had his ankle literally broken on the play, so the premise of the post you’re responding to is BS.

Oh jeez. He literally broke his ankle on the play. The player who doesn’t fumble on a play like that is a truly rare breed. Please add context to posts like this.

If they improve their runblocking, they will be more than set with the guys on the roster. If they don't we'll just think that they don't have enough talent and people will start making threads about Wade and every rb who gets cut during the season.

Whatever the plan at RB may be (I think we're fine on that front) the backup plan of passing for a gazillion yards per game seemed to work pretty well last year.

Singletary dropped a pass. He's a plenty good back. 2019 was excellent for a rook. Last year was solid, good ypc considering and often got stopped a yard or 2 behind the LOS, which is mostly out of his control. Moss looks nice too. They play an offensive scheme which most often rolls out 4 WR's on the field and no TE. If not then 3 WR's and 1 TE. Running the ball for the Bills is a matter of creating balance or perceived balance. This backfield group they have is plenty well equipped to achieve what this offense needs out of them.

Hard for a Fred Jackson type UDFA to be found with all of the non-college places to get experience.

This is something the NFL should think about.

Bunch of doom and gloom for nothing.

 

Two starting guards will return healthy to the lineup, an actual training camp will happen, Daboll will commit to fixing the running game, and the run game will be just fine.

 

Go back and watch the Chargers and Patriots game. Moss and Singletary are good players. 
 

I’m willing to bet that come the end of this season, not a soul will be talking about run game troubles. All the fervor to replace Moss and Singletary (two talented third round picks who’ve played three seasons between them) will seem like a distant memory.

RB is our weakness but the three will rotate and they will go with the hot hand depending on the game. I would expect the game by game breakdown will be dictated by the defense we are playing. It would be beneficial if we recognize that if our running backs combine for 1800 yards total this year that it could be 600 each, so a good team stat but not real impressive individual.

You forget Breida. I think it's going to be a running by committee approach like last season. Yet Breida could be active game days when Yeldon wasn't since does give us an added speed dimension. I'm also looking for Devin to bounce back to get about 600 yards rushing yards.

 

I think having Breida, Moss and Motor all active will depend on whether they find a gunner to take Taiwan Jones' responsibility who is also a position player backup. 

 

Maybe Wildgoose?

I was very impressed by 35 as well. Would love to see more of him. 

I think judging by the draft they think the oline may be at fault, partially. 

 

glad we got backup O linemen then.   there is a strategy here, not sure what, and it’s unconventional and I doubt it works (hope it does).
