Week 1: PIT loss

Weeks 2, 3 & 4 blow out bad teams (MIA, WAS, NYJ).

Week 5: Beat KC

Week 6: Defense struggles against TEN, offense almost pulls it out.

Week 7: Bye

Week 8: Struggled against Miami, but turned it on in the 3rd qtr and won going away.

Week 9: Jax loss, Def good, Off struggled

Week 10: Blow out NYJ

Week 11: Lose to Colts, Def and Off struggled

Week 12: Blow out NO

Week 13: NE loss, Def gave team a chance to win, Offense struggled. 

 

Every win since KC has been followed by a loss. Except for the TEN loss, the offense has struggled in each loss.  Since the bye, the offense plays good one week, then like crap the next.

im banging the cover off of this drum, but not being prepared every other week is indicative to me of a coaching/culture issue.  either they players don't buy in, they slack off, the scheme's get lazy/crappy, or some other issue hits us and we simply aren't good to go.

Yeah, there's a pattern. Bills can't beat good teams. It's not a big discovery at this point, and not worth another discussion. Take out the Chiefs game (Who EVVERYONE was beating back then, but at least the Chiefs rebounded) The Bills have beaten nothing but teams at the bottom of the gutter, and even losing to some of them. What's the point? The Bills are a marginal team, that can't perform basic NFL tasks, like running the football, or stopping the other team from running the football. What else are we looking to discover at this point?! At this point I believe posters here have Stockholm Syndrome. The answer is obvious, and the question is beyond redundant at this point. Bills finish 10-7. Lose to the good teams, beat up the teams that have already given up, and are playing draft position. The Bills are just slightly above average, and that ONLY due to Josh. Maybe we'll beat the Pats again in 2030.

So....we're gonna beat TB and then lose again to NE. 

 

Great.

 

Who has the remote? Let's fast forward.

 

Seriously, though, there's gotta be a way out right? 

 

Is this just the mid-season struggle? Are they gonna go on a win streak now and carry positive momentum into the playoffs?

Dude, you are all over the place and make no sense. Is it coaching or culture? Is it that they don't buy in or do they slack off? Is the scheme lazy(whatever the hell that means) or crappy.? Just a bunch of gibberish. Keep the cover on.

Who in there right mind thinks were beating Tampa? I haven't seen that forecasted anywhere where sanity was involved? Tampa is better than the Pats. The Bills lose to BOTH, and beat the other three teams who have already surrendered, and are looking forward to 2022. That's the Bills season in a nutshell. We irrationally thought they were good, because their schedule was filled with road kill. Next year their schedule looks normal, which unless drastic, and I mean drastic measures take place, they finish 8-9

It's "the pattern".... this thread is all about the pattern...

but actually I was wrong. I thought NE was after TB. 

 

In fact, Carolina comes after TB, so...

 

TB: W

Car: L

NE: W....

The "Pattern" worked because the schedule was full of dogs. Playing a good team and losing, was always followed with a win against a league bottom feeder. Just reverse your above forecast, and place a significant bet. Guaranteed money in your pocket.. Your welcome. Forget the pattern.

good point, Dopey!

 

said another way: players not being ready to play, be it their personal mindset or schematic implementation or preparation prior to the game, be it a function of specific x's and o's or a more general systemic "culture" prevalent in the professional football club environment, is a function of the effectiveness of the management of that football club, i.e. the coaching staff.

The team goes as the offense goes. It goes as Allen goes.  Games Allen plays well they normally win.  Like 90% of the time.  They do not have a curve ball.  The Bucs are not a team you try to “enforce your will” against.  Buffalo should just accept what they are.  They are a pass first team.  Mcdermott wants to change that do it in March.  Right now move the ball down the field.  Design some swing passes and short passes to Beasley.  Use that to augment the run game.

In a fairytale world, yes, they'd win out, and dominate the playoffs....but this is the Bills, where fairytales go to die.  I still believe that this disappointing season will, in the long run, be good for the team as weaknesses are clear and can be addressed.  Back in July and August when many respected experts had the team as a true SB contender, no one was flagging the weak offensive line, the inability to run the ball, the inability to stop the run, etc.  I was thinking today about the three other times in Bills history that the team was pretty dominant (or at least made the playoffs:  Mid 60's - the OL and DL dominated in the AFL and allowed the other talented players to be successful; early 70's - The Electric Company allowed OJ to run wild and the Bills were very competitive and finally the SB years - both the OL and the DL dominated the AFC and it allowed the team to run a very up tempo offense that was just so much fun to watch (a bit like last year).  What made those OL's in particular great was that the players were highly skilled AND played together as a unit for multiple games/seasons at a time.  I'm not sure that the same 4 OL have lined up in the same positions for more than a game or two this season.
