I get it. But this rookie has been starting at CB day one. Put him at safety in the cover two shell the Bills play and you will be fine 

 

puts your best players on the field. 

 

But the safeties do much more than play safety in this scheme. It is too much inexperience back there IMO. No coincidence that the two big plays the Bills have given up on defense in 7 games have both come when both starting safeties were not there. If Poyer is done they need to try and bring in a true vet with some experience in similar defenses. That is why I throw Xavier Woods out there. There is carry over from Dan Quinn's scheme he played in last year in Dallas to what McDermott and Frazier do.

The same Marlowe that got burned for a huge TD at end of game that should have lost them the game.

The same guy that knows the system and can walk in the door and provide depth if needed.    yeah that guy   oh no he gave up a touchdown... so did the bills D, it happens

Hoping for the best but he needs surgery then that could be the end of Poyer as a Buffalo Bill. I don't think they were going to re-sign him for the kind of $ his wife wants, uh I mean he wants. I think Jordan Phillips would get a contract before Jordan Poyer and Edmunds is probably their biggest contract this off-season. There's only so many of those big contracts to go around when your QB makes $45 mil per year and safety is way down the list

And I believe this was why Beane gave him a slight pay bump this year instead of a new contract. Those injuries are piling up. While he is an extremely important player on our defense...he's already missed multiple games. He's exited a couple others early due to injury. For a guy on the wrong side of 30...it's not the way to get the big new contract. If anything Beane may offer him a "prove it" deal IMO. 

 

Poyer is still good when available and playing through all the injury is a credit to what a warrior he is. But it's likely time to get younger at the position. Hope we can at least get him the ring he deserves as a parting gift. He's more than earned that.

The last touchdown in particularly never should have happened.

Poor technique by Hamlin. He spun around and lost track of the ball and the receiver. If he opened up his hips and kept the play in front of him he would see the receiver change direction

But he does lock down one side of the field. That means you can shade coverage to the other side. For 3 years that is what we did. Tre shut his side down, we shaded coverage to Levi and told him to keep everything in front, give up as many 6 yard completions as necessary to avoid getting beat deep.

That is a more accurate description of what they did. They also played Poyer and Hyde in the box more with White. Now they are two deep the vast majority of the time.

That is much harder to do than you think. You are correct but its very hard to do and even the best turn and run with the WR especially that far down field.

Might have to add a safety to the trade list.

 

Maybe they move Benford to safety when Tre returns. Get that ball roll.

 

I've heard this from a few folks the past weeks.

 

So ... you want a 6th round rookie, who has never played safety in his career, to change positions mid-season and start? 

 

Do you think there could potentially be any issues there, considering our Safeties play some of the most complicated schemes in the NFL?

I didn’t say anything about starting.

Jeremy White had a horrible take on this during the morning show.

 

He said he doesn’t want Beane to trade for a safety because it’s an “admission that the Bills have a problem”.

 

What kind of sense does that make? 
 

Jaquan Johnson is a problem Jeremy. He can’t run. And he’s going to be the reason you give up long touchdowns.
