Never said they aren't a problem...more that every team has them and good teams figure out ways to overcome them even if it isn't always pretty. 3 games in 12 days all on the road due to crazy weather situations told us a lot about this teams mental makeup.

“So the excuses the Bills are somehow more injured than every other team needs to stop.”

 

Recognize this?

Dude.  Just stop.  You are REALLY trying to go to any lengths to "dig up" things to bear bait me with and it's getting a little ridiculous.  It says exactly what I just posted above, not sure what your point is.  Find something to do bro...go get a hobby other than hanging on every word I type.

Go ahead, start “homer-shaming” me…but you all know who you are.  “This is wrong, that is wrong, the Bills don’t scare anyone, the offense doesn’t have talent beyond Allen/Diggs, the D stinks, the coaching is suspect, blah, blah, blah…”

 

Three road wins.  12 days.  A blizzard.  Injuries.  Doubters.

 

Can’t wait for the “there’s no way we’ll slow down Miami’s speed” threads next week.

 

Suck it. I love this team.

 

17 and 3, BABY!!!

 

If we play Miami next week they flew to the wrong city

The truth is almost always in the middle. The sky was not falling when we lost to the Jets and Vikings. The Bills are not perfect beating the Browns, Lions and Patriots. 

 

It is the Jets next. I remain very confident we will beat them. The Dolphins game will be tough but at home we should win. And we will stomp the Bears on Xmas Eve. 

 

I will take stock again after that three game stretch. Do we look like making it three division titles in a row? What does seeding look like? I think we have to get to the Bengals 12-3 to still be in contention for the #1 seed.

Also the first team to win 3 Thursday night games in a season.

I'm all aboard the Bills wagon, always have been, but I did chuckle at this one. How many teams have PLAYED 3 Thursday games in a season?

 

Still I like it, and 3 wins in 12 days and a blizzard IS quite impressive. 

 

Who would have thought though that the AFC East would be so competitive? Even at 9-3 it's not that comfortable.

I'm surprised the Patriots are where they are... though maybe they'll stumble to a 6-11 finish from here? But the Dolphins shouldn't surprise anyone they have been good the last two years and added one of the top 3 receivers in football and a top 5 left tackle. And I did predict the Jets would be above .500. That Jets roster has a lot of good young players.

Josh looks to be getting back to normal. Don't think he was wearing a brace last night. McKenzie is showing his value. Defense stepped up without von. Team seems to be getting back on track. Glad they have some extra time this week to rest. It's go time. Hopefully they can convince obj to sign here in the meantime 

Tre 's contract restructure MIGHT have something to do with OBJ.

Agree, but what the Bills have just gone through, and accomplished, is unprecedented.  That’s not hyperbole, it’s fact.

I thought the Bills losses to the Fish and Jets had a "fluke" aspect. The Bills were the better team on the field IMO. Anyway, it's all moot points. It's for the Bills to beat them next time.

Do not have to dig, you’re all over the forum displaying your insights.

 

You mentioned injuries aren’t pertinent to the Bills plight two days ago.

I'll start feeling confident about the p[layoffs again if they can string together the rest of the season with a balanced offense like they did against NE

They were running well, Josh was seeing the underneath stuff and took it, and the downfield game was still working

If they go back to be one dimensional, not able to run, not taking what the D gives you then we won't be having no parades.


I also want to see the D be more consistent on pressure and not giving up the big runs and cushy passes that have plagues them some during the mid season


Thats the saddest part.. I beleive this team is stil performing below peak consistentcy. The NE game hopefully represents a change for the stretch

They aren't because every team has them.  That doesn't mean they aren't a problem tho. Reading comprehension is underrated.  Perhaps you could ask for this for Christmas this year?

But Greg Cossell said that we lack talent on offense...

Our offensive line stunk in pass protection the whole game. Free rushers right off the snap (which led to a strip sack). Interior of the line got the job done in run blocking and that made the difference. WRs were also pretty pedestrian outside of Diggs (which is what Cosell said).

 

We just happen to have the best player in the NFL, Josh Allen, which covered up for those deficiencies.
