Who are you man?  Almost seems like you’re upset the Bills won.

 

Every single game refs miss calls. Today was no exception. Sometimes it goes in your favor. Sometimes it doesn’t. It tends to even out in the end. 

I agree. No I am elated the Bills won.

Ooof. Gotta be the DC already?  I cant see them firing Roman.  He is the perfect OC for that QB.

 

Would have thought so. They had a 21 point lead over the Dolphins in week two and lost; a 17 point lead over us today and lost, both at home.

Great win.  Come from behind on the road in bad weather against a good team and an elite player (Lamar). 

 

Winning a one score game feels great and they did it right, leaving no chance for the Raven to come back. 

 

I counted 10 drops today:  Knox (1 that was intercepted), Crowder was dreadful (4), Motor (1), Diggs (1), Davis (2), Cook (1).  I also counted 4 tipped balls, the one that Knox missed was the interception.  

 

On the positive side was Josh's game management and his critical plays (especially the key runs), and the defense in the 2nd half.  Shakir looked good in his first game - 2 catches and YAC, plus some key blocks.   I think Motor made some big plays despite the fumble.  

 

Game balls to Poyer and Josh.  

 

Down 20-3 and we win 23-3.  

 

We come back home and get ready for the Stillers who befuddled us last year.  This time will be different.  

 

What was the score again? 😛

Totally. I think it’s telling that they weren’t able to agree on any extension before the season started, though. Poyer has been underpaid based on his performance here and he probably wants a little thanks from the Bills. 

 

He was overpaid his first few years with the Bills though. McDermott took him from obscurity and turned him into an all-pro and he's been paid handsomely for his services. I'd love to keep him but it's likely he wouldn't have the same impact in any other scheme and he's nearing the end of his career so he doesn't have a lot of leverage. His hiring of Rosenhaus says he thinks he can cash in another big contract but I think any other team would be disappointed in their investment if he gets exactly what he wants.

Listen... You can B word about that penalty all you want.  You are the same guy that would come in and criticize fans for complaining about refs.  here you are complaining about a legit call.  Lets just say that the call isnt legit though... it wouldnt have mattered.  That call was on a first down from the Ravens 41 yardline.  The outcome would have been no different, call or no call.

You don't know what the outcome would have been nor do I.

He barely hit Allen. The Raven defensive player moved his body sideways to soften the hit. He didn't slam him to the ground nor was it a late hit. It was a bad call and even the announcer on TV acknowledged it. Cone on guys let's except the gift. No need to try to justify the terrible refs call. 

 

Looked to me like he paused to line up his helmet to Josh's face mask, which the Ravens were doing all game, and Josh had been telling the refs to watch for it. Well they finally saw it. Sucks to be cheap, Ravens.

McKenzie's injury? How many times did Josh end up with unreasonable late head-to-head contact? Sorry I can't remember the specific down for each occurence but there were a few.

Oh I agree the McKenzie hit was a penalty. I didn't really see Allen getting roughed up that would be penalties. However, many here in game time were complaining.

Too funny.  He did not slam him to the ground because Josh Allen is 40 pounds heavier and 6 inches taller, combined with the fact that he stopped to watch the ball and then continued on, sapping his momentum. Obvious penalty.

It would have been 2nd and 15 from the 41 yardline.  The Bills drove to the half yard line.  Yes, I know what the outcome woulda been.

I'll have to watch back to judge them in full but a lot looked late. Plus I think the Ravens D are very good at sneaky holds away from the ref's eyeline but that could be argued as good play, even if they should be given as penalties.
