Did you hear what Romo said about Allen's throw? 

 

Plus, your comparassion is a bit disingenuous. The Chargers are seen by many as a playoff contender and dangerous if heathly. No one really considers the Lions as such. Add in the Lion injuries too. 

 

Lastly, Mahomes is out playing Allen despite losing to the Bills. With that said, Allen's throw to Diggs was tremoundous!

The Lions played with more fight and heart yesterday than the Chargers under Staley ever have.

 

I’m sorry, I think Herbert is talented as they come, but how about LA wins about 4 games in a row just once?

I was on the road traveling during the first half yesterday.  How did Tre look back in action?  Didn’t see him out there much late in the game

He was only in the first couple of drives.

 

McDermott said after the game they only wanted him in for 20-25 plays.

 

It looked like they had the same strategy with Elam, but when they had to have it, Elam came back in the 4th.

The Chargers are ALWAYS seen as a playoff team yet NEVER MAKE THE PLAYOFFS! There probably isn’t a more overrated team in the league, and the Chiefs barely beat them. I am not saying the Lions are a playoff team but at this point in the season they are a more dangerous team than the Chargers are

Sounds like it was a pitch count for both White and Elam.

 

Didnt notice White at all when he was out there, which I suppose could be a good thing. 

 

For most of the game it was just a repeat of the Dane Jackson gets roasted show. 

snap count

I think you are missing the point. In fact, you make my point even stronger. The Bills played a mediocre Lions team who were hurt on both sides of the ball. The Bills weren't able to control the game and in fact struggled on both sides of the ball. The Bills were very fortunate to win today. Point being with all the Bills injuries they are not a great team. Not a team who can make a run to the Super Bowl. Anyone thinking the Bills can is out of touch with reality. 


I guess that means the Eagles, Dolphins and Vikings aren’t making Super Bowl runs this year because they barely beat the Lions too when healthy.

This game really showed me how important the slot receiver is to Josh Allen and this offense. I've noticed how different the offense looks without Crowder. Since his injury the offense has been sporadic. McKenzie/Shakir has filled in for spot duty, but has been inconsistent. Yesterday's game and the Pittsburgh game insinuated the need for a capable, consistent slot receiver

I'm afraid that Devante Parker may have a career game next week. Dane is having trouble adjusting to the ball, especially jump balls. This is a big part of Parker's game. Hopefully Frazier figures something out

Shakir 34 snaps 0 targets

Think teams notices this? When Shakir's in the game he's either used to block or decoy.

Shakir 34 snaps 0 targets, damn. Hines 4 snaps, it's pretty clear at this point he's strictly a return man.

 

 

I tried watching Shakir on a couple of routes (as well as you can until he’s out of the screen) and it looks like he struggles to get separation. That being said on Josh’s touchdown when he dropped the snap, Shakir made a nice move to get wide open, I wonder if the play was designed to go to him

Josh almost never looks Shakir’s way. Whether that’s Shakir’s fault for not getting open, I don’t know, I don’t have the All-22. It’s almost exclusively, Diggs, Davis, and (insert running back here). Knox only gets a couple looks himself.


Anybody here watch Dallas and wonder why we can’t scheme up stuff for Knox like they did their TE? 
 

Everything we run seems like it’s our guy has to win his matchup, even Knox .. whereas I watch all these other teams scheme guys open.  
 

I don’t get it.  Maybe we’re all overly critical, and we do move the ball, but unless we unleash Allen to run/throw at will, everything seems like we’re playing the opp on expert level.

What amazes me is that one of the very few times they actually seemed to scheme someone open, they scored a touchdown! They knew Diggs would be doubled, McKenzie ran right behind the double team and was wide open!

I liked that missing so many Dlineman Ed Oliver stepped up big.  He was a force on the field with Milano.  With the injuries on defense Im not going to expect the replacements to make the plays.  The last few weeks im disappointed most with Jackson and Johnson.  They are 2/5 of the starting secondary.  I expect Benford, Elam, and Hamlin to get picked on.  Cleveland and Detriot got numeros plays on both Jackson and Johnson.  They seem to be treading water or struggling with there new primary roles.  If White gets back to a majority snap count I rotate Benford and Elam in with Jackson.

Yes, no one watches film on Buffalo and comes away with we have to stop Singletary and Cook to win.  Allen is a threat running as well.  If I play Buffalo backside end goes Allen than recover.  Without the defense crashing to stop the run that play is rather useless.  
 

Knox seems to be helping more in pass protection than under Daboll as well.  He is helping Brown on what seems like most pass plays.  My main take away is I want to see Cook used more traditionally.  That will allow the plays on the edge to have a larger impact.

Yea.. I’ve been impressed with Cook as a RB.  Not so much as a pass catcher.  He’s thinking too much and doesn’t understand zones/pass-angles yet, which almost led to a turnover yesterday.
