Dude give up. Blaming Allen for this is a losing cause. 

 

where did I blame Allen for this loss?  I'll wait.  Because I didn't.  I simply stated that he missed (as in did not notice) wide open WR's for TD's.  That's a fact.   I mean, freaking Levy was getting a fetish at one point about showing replays of it for some odd reason.

He played a good game, but that sack he took on 2nd and 10 with Sweeney wide open in the 3rd qtr was a huge momentum play for Tennessee. 

 

Getting 0 points when our defense couldn't stop a nose bleed really hurt. Still, he was definitely not the reason we lost. The defense has to be better.

that's kind of the problem here.  We have no OL, and no RB that other teams fear.  

We have a good offensive line, not a great one.  How many RB's around the league do you fear?

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 

Was he wrong to have no confidence in the defense? Lol I think you can definitely make a case for either decision but going for it with your offense is not the 'weak' decision imo I think in his press conference he was absolutely f***** livid that joshs scramble the play before the 4th down got ruled a first down by the refs then 'changed' without an official review  and didn't want to lose his mind

At least this games showed us that the Bills are not peaking yet. I want the team to peak a month before the playoff starts.

It really doesn’t matter though. We have no answers for a team like Tampa. Tampa is a better version of Tennessee, minus Henry, but they are competent enough in the running game. KC is a good RB away from being to good to beat as well. The only way we win a super bowl is to get better on the line and get a RB.

Disagree. For the most part Allen was very good. He was under pressure way too much. He was the clear leader of the team. He made big plays and only had one int.  I'll take this version of Allen every week. This loss was mostly on the D and O line. 


And his only int was because the right tackle got blown up and his arm got hit. It wasn’t a bad decision or inaccurate throw.

It’s felt like Allen was struggling tonite, his passes tonite were very wobbly. I don’t know if it was Monday nite football pressure or just a bad game but the ball did not spin out of his hand tonight like it usually does. 

I just don't get where this is coming from. Are you seriously claiming that the Monday Night Pressure got to Allen? He was great tonight and if you showed me his stat line and told me before the game that we would score 31 points I would have said there was a 100% chance we win.

Allen had ONE bad drive, late in the game, where he stopped taking what the D gave him and got greedy (the bad 3-and-out). He could've climbed the pocket and run or found Sweeney to the right flat wide open when instead he drifted right into pressure and got sacked. That was old school, inexcusable Josh play. And put us behind the sticks.

 

Otherwise he was mostly a stud.

we don't have a good OL.  A good OL gets a first down on at least one short QB sneak.  Ours was getting blown up all night.  

 

I think you have to game plan for any of the RB's on several teams (Henry, Eckler, Elliott, Taylor, Jones, Robinson, Harris, Hunt, Mixon, Swift, Cook, Montgomery).  Just to anme a few that would be better than the guys on our team and that DC's have to pay attention to.  Our RB's pose no threat to an opposing D.

But this is a fan forum.  This isn’t an impartial, passionless dissection of a random MNF game. When you grow up, you might understand that. 

Huh? Growing up involves being both a fan of the team and a fan of good, entertaining football. That game had everything. I effing HATE the Bills' squandered opportunities and the broadcast-led national ball chugging of Derrick Henry, but that was a classic battle.

So we who wanted to kick were wrong?

 

Problem was you're then leaving it up to a coin toss. 

 

If Titans win the toss, they're scoring. We saw drive after drive as they easily matched down the field. 

 

Seems like McDermott thought it was better to control your own destiny. Don't leave it up to chance. I don't disagree with the call considering how short the distance was.

Call on the field was a 1st down. Upstairs overturned the call on the field. It would have needed to be clear and obvious. And then there’s no measurement. If Lamar was stopped at that situation, there would be a 20 minute game delay to view it in 40 different angles and to use calipers, micrometers, scientific calculators and slide rules to find out if Lamar makes the first down.

Show me a QB that doesn't have a bad series in a half?  The expectations for Allen by a small group of "fans" is bizarre IMO.  Honestly I think it's coming from the "wrong Josh" crowd that still can't get over the fact that Allen is actually an elite franchise QB.
