I blame Steve Tasker. He said on OBL yesterday that it was gonna be a beat down by the Bills. He said they paid back the Chiefs last week and that the Bills still had a sour taste in their mouth from last years beating by Tennessee. Also said they haven't forgot that game and they would pound the Titans. Said it wouldn't even be close, because they knew how to stop Henry. 


The line being what it was and all the media I saw  picking the Bills to cover had me thinking a lot of people were underestimating the Titans. I thought this one was gonna be close.

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.

I think that Dawkins did what he was supposed to do.  The entire left side of the line is blocking down and Josh looks at the oncoming outside LB before deciding to go off guard left guard.  I'll bet Sweeney is supposed to prevent the outside LB from crashing down, thus giving Josh a lane off left tackle.

On the replays I watched it looked like Dawkins got blown up and decleated. The left side of the line have had better games.

 

On those same replays it looks like Moss could have jogged to the sticks or maybe scored with Sweeny sealing the edge if the call had been for Allen to fake the sneak then pitch it to Moss on the end around. Tennessee completely sold out crashing the left side of the OL and there were opportunities to take advantage of that.

 

Would-a, could-a, should-a...

Why was tonight the night to get cute and start obada? Epenesa and Boogie are physical and quick enough to get to Henry before he gets steam. 

I think playing Obada or Phillips is fine, but there was no reason to have both.  I would have much rather have sat Addison instead of Epenesa too.

I blame the coaching.  We only rushed 4 on passing plays, but didn’t have our best pass rushers out there.  Why is Zimmer playing so much on passing downs.  

Well, *Coach*, it was a management decision to beef up the middle of the Dline for the game. Harry played very well, stuffing holes and providing inside rush pressure. But you have to take off your BBFS sunglasses to see. 
I’ll try to find out why your piercing insights weren’t recognized. …….

TN is really asserting themselves as a nemesis.

 

Kind of fun, in a way.  Rivalries are cool, especially when you truly can't stand the other team.

 

If ‘truly can’t stand the other team’ is the criteria, count me in on our newest rivalry!

What a great game...too bad the Bills lost

 

 McD made a gutsy call to go for it and they just couldn't execute the play.

 

I think they should have faked the FB Gilliam plunge they used in pre season and ran Josh around the end to the right.

 

You got to give him credit he could have just kicked the FG and took his chances on OT

Tannehill is the new Alex Smith. Never makes the boneheaded mistake and does just enough to keep his team in the game. Sitting for 2 weeks on this loss will not be fun.

 

I am over it already.

What a terrible loss. I had dreams all night about the game. Alternate endings, replaying the last two plays over and over, seeing the stupid Titans celebrating, etc. One of the all-time heartbreakers. Feels like thinking back over what happened after your girlfriend leaves you or something. Hurts like that

Tough one.  It was the right thing to go for it, but I wish they would have been more inventive with the call.  
 

You win games up front, and we just got beat up front last night similar to the Steelers game.  Brown had his first game where he looked like a rookie.  Interior line play and Dawkins still spotty at best.  
 

McD will use this as a motivator.

No it doesn't send that message. There's more to the decision than that. That's just a overused cliche type of explanation. Not based in reality.

Yeah. I kick the FG there. You’re on the road and you give yourself other chances to win in OT. I didn’t like the decision or the play call. Analytics don’t factor in game situations.

Very disappointed in Frazier.  If you’re clever enough to scheme to beat Mahomes, you should be able to stop the Michigan State offense on third downs.  First and second downs were fine, but never adjusted to what the Titans were doing on third and long which was to move Brown inside and behind a stack for a free release inside.  Never brought pressure.  Just let Tannehill sit back and find Brown over the middle over and over again with zero adjustment.  Totally inexcusable and frankly arrogant.

Tried to warn people before the game the Titans were the better team but no one seemed to want to listen.

 

Bills have played one of the worst schedules out there.  Titans beat the bills 9/10 times.  Bills have a lot of work to do.
