Put that loss on 3 factors…

1)our defense playing weak in the middle of the field due to play action

2) crucial OT mistakes - the pick tip due to Brown’s whiff and the last play due to Dawkins getting pancaked 

and

3) some weird coaching - picking 3rd and 7 over 2nd and 17 for a running team? Likely a 7 point swing.  And likely Coach probably called that obvious last play. Geez I wonder if they will run Josh left? 

I agree with your points,

1. I'd piggy back and say that it wasn't so much the play action, it was mostly edmunds and alot of Milano playing up because neither wanted to open feild tackle head to head with Henry, they wanted to bottle neck him with help before he got steam. Any qb could have diced our middle of the feild.

2. Dawkins got a terrible jump and got pan caked. That was a decent DL and we made them look good.

3. I hated almost every run play we called in the second half. Their dbs aren't in the same area code as our receivers, why care about keeping them honest on play action, they can't stop the pass 3 times in a row. I felt like even when Singletary got 4 yards it was a waste. Hammer the dbs and make them start holding and PIs

We get beat in the trenches all day, so we put the game on the line for a call that everyone sees coming…in the trenches.  
 

Stupid.  Just stupid.  Going for it shows no faith in the defense (which maybe rightfully so). But you don’t know who gets the ball in OT.  
 

Allen can’t slip there, but Dawkins got destroyed.  If you run that play, have an extra blocker.  

Welp, that settles it. Not reading your weekly thread again. Way too much BBFS..🙄

Ugh this is hard to watch. The way the defense lined up, we convert a sneak here 98/100 times. 

UGHHHH

why would you run to the left at a critical time when it had already failed earlier?...   go where the meat of your blockers are.   i think even if dawkins held his 

ground Josh wasnt getting in there because the force of the D is pushing towards the center and closing that gap.

Not as good as we thought. Played mahomes well, but who were the other qb’s…


Yep, he’s rubbish. We should run him out of town at the earliest opportunity and do everything to trade up in the draft for a new Quarterback(!)

Watch the tape - was worse than his stats. A lot of open receivers tonight. He was off. 

Allen was 34/47 for 353 yards and 3 TD with a fluky INT when his arm was hit as he threw the ball.  Do you watch pro football?  Even the best QB's miss open receivers all the time. 

 

I'll let you in on a little secrete with the way the O line played tonight and in a couple of other games this year only Allen's freakishly good escapability keeps the sack totals relative low. There are a lot of QB's in the NFL not named Allen who would have been sacked 4 or 5 times tonight.

I’d like to see more of Moss and less of Motor. That catch Moss made would’ve been a drop by Motor 

Moss just isn’t fast enough, and neither is motor. I often think about having a RB like Henry and Hunt or really 50% or the RBs in the league. I honestly feel bad for Allen, when he has time, he’s nearly unstoppable.

Balanced teams give our offense fits. We are lucky going up against a Chiefs team with a not very good runner. We just aren’t built physical enough. 

Not tonight. Would’ve liked to seen Boogie over Addison. Addison is a pass rusher only. We have Hughes to fill that role.

There were enough plays on the live repays that you see guys wide open. Sanders in end zone, Beasley in end zone and many more. 

I saw a few times where pressure collapsed the pocket and he had to dump the ball off before loading up to take a deep shot...the only play you're describing that comes to mind is when he took the sack when he thought the titans only had one safety up top and he thought he had davis on a deep post but the other safety got back.  That was not the right decision but all the best qbs have plays like that in any given game.  I feel like we're comparing our guy to some hypothetically perfect qb that makes the right read and a perfect throw every single time

I knew going for it was a mistake. McDs decision making on that last drive were terrible and concerning.

 

1. calling TO when you have the defense reeling with 45 seconds left was stupid.

 

2. Ofc I’m going to say not kicking the FG was dumb. I knew it was from the get-go. 
 

Not kicking the FG shows McD truly had no answer and/or did not want to adjust the defense. He sounds weak in his press conference tonight too. Very nonchalant and its very strange

I think if Buffalo had played a fully healthy Tennessee team, we would have been beaten down pretty badly again.

 

Alllen had his way with all of those injuries on the defense. It was a great game and they just came up short. It's going to be a tough one to swallow for those guys for quite some time

Offense - just gave up running the ball, and started firing it deep. The short middle stuff was there. This really pisses me off because TEN was down to scrubs in the defensive backfield and like morons Buffalo goes for the LOW PERCENT deep balls only to see with their own two stupid eyes that that never ever freaking works in the NFL. You complete one or two of those a game no matter how many you throw. Stupid Buffalo should beat the living hell out the corners with skilled routes and high percentage completions. But they shouldn’t have been throwing that much to begin with.

 

Run the damn ball!! Jesus. Run the goddam ball when you’re defense is clueless. Stop abandoning the run. If the there’s a theme with this team it’s that it gets desperate and turns into a Josh Allen bullet contest when patience and sustained drives is totally possible because of superior talent.

 

Defense - pretty awful. Can’t stop the same AJ Brown in route time and time again. Just when I thought Edmunds was playing faster and going, he does this. If he’s a fourth round draft pick, he’s not sticking around this long. Time’s up 49. I’m over his one second delay and lost in coverage ass.

 

ST - zero in the return game. Finally break one and it’s a penalty. Looks like the punter discovered kicking the ball some time tonight, which is nice. Bass is one of the best kickers in the league. But the return game has no impact out there.
 

The NFC did Buffalo some favors this weekend, and Buffalo hand the conference a freebie. The shield showed respect with a Sunday Night, then Monday Night, then bye. Buffalo needed to come away with a win given what was going on out there on the field. 

The running game was not there, at all. Even Josh couldn't run, except on that sack, he had the middle of the field WIDE OPEN. That whole series was just horrid. All we had to do was get a couple of first downs

QB should go straight ahead as soon as the ball is hiked.  Josh danced to his left and then tried to go in.  hard to say what this play was designed to do; maybe Josh off left tackle but Sweeney's block is late.

Off game for Josh but he makes the throws required to be great. When he gets that deer in the headlights look, thats when you worry; but he still performs. 

What the Hell are you talking about, son?? 358 yrds passing, 3 TD passes and he caught a touchdown! 
Off game?? Jesus Christ!

I disagree. We don't know what other teams would have done, but I still think kicking was the right call. But if you don't kick, call a better play. Nobody can cover Diggs or Beasley on a pass play that only needs 1/2 yard. Spread out the WR's and hit one of them.

Hated the call or at least force the refs to review the previous run by Josh. That buys you time to come up with a better 4th down play.

Agree that Allen would be sacked much more behind this OL.  But he did not have his best game tonight.  When under pressure he generally notices those open WR's.  This OL is a disaster.  It was a liability last year, and we did nothing substantial to fix it.   The DL is also a disaster, no sacks on Tanny.
