A lot of coaching problems today but those problems will be overshadowed by the win.

 

That’s okay.

 

Im very proud of the second half adjustments by the coaches.

 

You may want to re-read that post.

Einstein your posts are so bad do you think that a backhanded compliment to the coaches after all of the dung you have been spewing on this board somehow makes you positive

How was the coaching today?

 

Cleveland could have used some of this "poor coaching" against the Jets when Chubb scored instead going down so they would be able to run the clock out.

 

Jets scored 14 points in last 90 seconds to win...

 

Singletary went down instead of trying to score...Allen dove for the first down making sure not to score and then the Bills did the same thing they did the last game they came back from 17 points down to win, the famous Fitzy Pat game to break the streak, kneel it down to run all the time of the clock and kick an easy FG for the walk off win.

 

That was exceptional coaching and execution by the players.

 

 

 

Wasn't that easy to do either when the 1st down maker was inside the one.  Didn't leave much room for error

Yeah it was both great coaching to be aware of the situation and great execution by the players

In 3 out of 4 games the Bills defense has allowed ZERO points in the 2nd half. And we're doing it against really good NFL offenses. McDermott has his issues with some decision making in critical moments, but he is arguably the best coach in the league at making halftime adjustments. For anyone questioning that last statement, I'll say it again - ZERO 2nd half points by our opponent in 3 out of 4 games this year.

I’m still concerned with the offense. They’re so so unproductive on early downs that it’s putting them in a spot where the best QB in the league has to bail them out. They’re currently converting at more than 2X the league average in 3rd and 7+. That’s not sustainable at all.

We've been outstanding on 3rd down conversions since 2020. It is absolutely sustainable because we have a freak show QB. That being said your point about early downs is correct. Singletary is just okay, Moss is terrible, Cook has made too many mistakes to trust him. So I don't know if a solution is coming this season.

Time management at end of half and end of game wasn’t great, which continues to be a theme. 
 

End of half there was a play that was in bounds with around 50 seconds with all 3 timeouts and we don’t take a timeout we lose about 15-20 seconds. We end up 1st and goal with only 13 seconds left and I believe still 2 timeouts. This probably leaves us only 2 plays at the endzone, maybe a 3rd if go for it and drain the clock.
 

End of game we are around the 50 with around 3- 3 1/2 minutes left and aren’t running the play clock down. Snapping the ball with 10-15 seconds left. it’s like we didn’t realize a field goal of wins the game until the last 3 plays.

Agree with all that and will add our offensive line is still a problem. Right side was bad again today. Bates spent a lot of time spinning like a top then falling on his ass and Brown's pass pro is ugly. At least having Mitch back we mostly snapped it properly and I do think Saffold looked slightly better than his horror show last week. 

 

When your OL is inconsistent it is hard for the offense to be inconsistent.

You're wrong.  In 1st half we had three timeouts and wanted to ensure ravens had no shot with their 1 timeout.  The bills calling a timeout there substantially increases the chances of the ravens getting points.

 

More importantly, the clock wasn't really the reason for not calling a timeout.  The players that the ravens had on the field combined with play calling left a favorable matchup for us.  Calling an unnecessary timeout when you have the potential for a mismatch would have been a coaching mistake.  The prior play was a run play.  We proceeded to take a shot down the field that the ravens covered well, but the result does not change the correctness of the call.  After the incompletion there was still over 30 seconds on the clock with us at the 28 and 3 timeouts. Your armchair coaching is shallow and uninformed.

 

In the 4th quarter we ran plays at 4:07, 3:35, and 2:59.  While they could have squeaked a few more seconds out, they were snapping under :10.  That's about right for 4 minute drill.  The rest of the drive was finished out about as perfect as it can be.  Nothing to see here...

Thanks for consistently providing some color to line play.   I don't know how you see it in real time, but you see a lot that I miss.

Lol 2x the league average on 3rd and long at almost 70% is not sustainable in any form or fashion. If you believe that it is, you don't watch enough football.

Seems like he enjoys finding negatives about every situation, as if all other teams coaches only make the best possible decisions every time.

 Lol. You say one thing, but the results show something completely different. At the end of the 1st half they scored a TD with 9 seconds to go and at the end of the game they kicked a FG as time expires. That's about as perfect of a job of scoring AND draining the clock as one could ask for.

Um what?  They literally scored the TD at the end of the first half leaving 9 seconds on the clock as well as ran the entire clock out to win the game at the end of the game.  You are complaining as if those things didnt happen.

I bet he thinks Andy Reid is one of the best coaches in the league.  Before Mahomes he was constantly criticized for making poor coaching decisions.

Hog wash. He sucks because the bills aren’t perfect. They should be 4-0 with zero points allowed and averaging 40 pts/game. 

Lots of hall of fame coaches hang out on this message board it seems. The guy is solid. Most teams would grab up MCD in a second if he was available. Is he perfect? Show me who is. You fans are either very young and don’t know jack OR your just trolls.

I think they need to stop switching the RBs.....Leave Singletary in  for the whole series...Singletary is our Best RB today and he should play without losing his rhythm

    Sorry for being late to the thread.....

    I think this is a two headed monster with blocking scheme/execution being a large contributing factor. I feel some of the linemen aren’t 100% . Brown especially seemed to be limited by his back through the first few games, including getting pulled out of one. Yesterday, he actually mauled someone to the ground while sealing off a run. It was encouraging to see.    

    I’m also not sure Dorsey has an ability to scheme up good run blocking. 

 For the life of all of us, it is infuriating to watch Moss run into the center of the line for 1 yard. In his defense, there aren’t holes but it doesn’t help that he is himself😒

     I think the only wildcard we have is Cook. He has demonstrably more burst than Singletary. The fumble was the fumble. They need to figure out ways to get him the ball in space. Often, Josh uses the back as a dump off. How about four wides clearing out the underneath with zero intention of passing deep in order to set Cook up shallow 1 on 1. How, about 4 wides with Cook( or Motor) getting a chance to either pick an easy gap or shovel pass/quick hitting dump off. 

      To my eye, a large part of these rushing woes seem like lack of emphasis/desire ( caused by the laziness induced by having Allen) and coaching stubbornness of not using a rookie.
