Our 2022 Bills remind me of the 85 bears. This will be our only loss of the season. See everyone at the super bowl #gobills 

 

 

This season is going to a grind......they will not go 16-1.    The AFC is tougher than it's ever been..........and they have 9 road games instead of 8 road trips like last year........and while the Bills are the deserving favorites they are not without weaknesses that will be taken advantage of against certain opponents even if they get healthy.

 

The best part of losing to the Dolphins...........is just like losing to the Patriots last season..........the chance to possibly beat them the second time AND a third time at home in the playoffs.    Just hopefully it's in the divisional round instead of the WC this time.

 

After the Patriots beat the Bills last year the Boston media was saying sh* t like "you will remember where you were for this game 25 years from now".     They were certain they had turned the tables back to their dominance.    Two matchups and just a matter of weeks later the Bills gave them their worst, most humiliating loss in team history and had re-asserted their dominance.

The Bears didn't have McMahon for that game either.

 

If they have McMahon, the Bears go unbeaten that season.

 

They would have beaten the Dolphins 41-38 in OT.

 

 

Yeah, because McMahon was such a great QB. I mean, he had 15 TDs that year and 11 INTs. 56.9% completions. 82.6 passer rating. Guy was Josh Allen before Josh himself. Sorry for the sarcasm. Looked like you probably had a bit of sarcasm in there as well.

 

No reason to think da Bears would have scored 41 points if he'd been there. I mean, it's not impossible, but it's not like a guy, McMahon, who averaged 184 passing yards and less than a touchdown per game that year, was likely to explode that day. Chicago actually got more than their average number of yards and passing TDs that day. The problem was 3 TDs, and one of those was thrown by McMahon before he came out after throwing six passes for 0 TDs, one INT, two sacks and 42 yards.

 

The reason that Bears team was terrific was the defense, which didn't play that well that game. Miami scored 38 points that game and nobody else scored more than 28 against them that year. Hell, including the Fins, only three teams reached 20 points against them that year.

 

The Fins simply did a terrific job that day.

 

Can we say the Bears would have done better if they hadn't had a key injury? Yeah, maybe, better, but 17 points better?  Same with us yesterday, we'd have done better w/out so many injuries. Except we had way more injuries yesterday, particularly including heat problems, than the Bears did back then. Our Miami game this week was historic in terms of injury, one of the larger numbers anyone will ever see.

In three playoff games they gave up a grand total of 10 points. 7 of those 10 points were in 4th qtr garbage time against backups while they were holding a 40 point lead. So realistically, that defense allowed a total of 3 points.

 

They averaged giving up 1 point a game through the playoffs. 🤯

Is the Refrigerator still able to play?

I would like to see Jordan Philllips playing fullback, running with the ball on short yardage situations.  The Bills on 3rd and 1 can't get any worse.

I can't possibly see any comparison to this team and the 85 Bears lmao. Allen = McMahon? 🤣

Yup. Insane defense, particularly that year.

 

McMahon was one of those very very few Trent Dilfer types that win a Super Bowl despite being a real game manager type about once a decade or so.
