Funny I said last week in the postgame thread that I would think the odds gotta swing in our favor in these close heartbreakers we’re dealing with….. but here we are again.  
 

5 losses by a combined 23. Geez. 

I would put forth coaching is as much a cause for all those close losses as anything.

 

It's a handicap we have to overcome, and it's a problem.

Bills needed to close the deal in regulation (despite officiating). Too many games this year they had a chance at the end, and came up short. This season's epitaph.


Thats the real surprise this season. Every close game the Bills have done exactly what they needed to do to lose, no more and no less. The thing we usually refer to as being ‘Billsy’. This has not been a previous rain of McDermott squads. Not sure if it’s just incredible flakiness, arrogance, randomness, league bias and/or incompetence or how much of each, but it’s getting annoying.

If I'm McDermott, I'm getting fined by the league because I'm going ballistic in the press conference about the refs. You have to stand up for your team sometimes

McPuss doesn't have the stones to do it. That Diggs non call was egregious. And if Brady threw that ball 6 flags come out. The NFL is officially the WWE.

Man, I been watching football a long time ... when the DB doesn't turn his head in time, it's a penalty, sorry for injecting a little reality into the discussion.

So why wasn’t your reality called against Diggs multiple times?

Sure but more than 1 thing can be right

Yeah….I don’t think they were better.  I thought they were better for about half the game.  Then they choked and we came back, should have won, but the refs didn’t give us any calls.  Blatant penalties.

The only way to avoid the pitfalls of sucky NFL refereeing is to dominate your opponent.  Our team did absolutely nothing in the first half of this game.

 

McD can burst an artery over this for all I care, but when the team has done it's job then practically nobody talks about the refereeing that we all know is terrible.

Hughes and Addison they used a 1st and 2nd for already. 
 

Sanders I don’t care he can sit now and let Gabe Davis take his snaps (as he should have ALL season). 


We’re in trouble if our hopes of having a good pass rush are in the hands of Epenesa, Groot and Basham.

Sad in this case, but clearly true. Evans might've sold it (hey, that's a skill for WRs just like it is for James Harden jumping into defenders), but that doesn't get a call if the DB turns toward the ball.

It’s hard to turn with your arm being held

No the Wr pulled him into him and Wallace was turning his head probably intercepted if evens doesn’t reach around pull him In

Bad call, but you also can’t let Gronk get 15 on a 2nd and 17, while the OC completely pantsed our defense on the TD. That was an amazing playcall he was saving all day

 

It's basically what KC did to Edmunds all day in the AFC Championship...Make him react and make a play on a crosser behind him...

 

Anyway...Oh well...

Thats not what you said.  What you are actually saying here though is the Bills need to outplay the referees which is a problem in the first place.  Referees should not be deciding games period.  If they call something one way.  It needs to be called the other way.  If they let it go one way.  They need to let it go the other way.

 

3rd and goal defender had Diggs arm wrapped as the defender was falling down.

3rd down in OT Wallace was pulled into the defender by the defender.

 

The refs decided the game period.  I don't care if its on the road.  I don't care if the team is playing against Tom Brady.  It shouldn't happen period

 

Your original argument was the team needs better talent so the game is kept out of reach.  The game was not kept out of reach by a team with better talent.  The refs literally kept the less talented team from winning the football game.  Thats what happened.

I'd have to watch the replays again, but iirc, Wallace did not turn back toward the ball. Doesn't matter if the WR slows up and causes the collision. A smart QB & WR will intentionally cause that contact if the DB is out of position and doesn't turn his head.

 

I'd have to watch the Diggs play again to see if that DB had his head turned.

Well that’s on the HC and GM. They spent into the position group that was aging. I couldn’t care less anyway. Build an OL that protects Josh and he makes up for Bad Defense (see Tampa today).
