1) Byrd looked like he was running in sand. He was also pushed back 15 yards or so by a wide receiver who he was back pedaling away from. He was shaken up in the 4th quarter, and if he sits, it will be not so much of a loss. What to do? They will probably use the franchise tag on him.

2) Kyle William was flat out pancaked on a third and long run in the second quarter. His play has fallen WAY off, to the point that he is no help in virtually any situation.

3) I love to see Graham line up as one of 2 in the slot. He gets open, and would go deep if he had a quarterback who could reach him.

4) I wanted the Bills to fire Wanny at halftime. Consider this a flat out call for his immediate dismissal. I will say it. His defense is worse than that of Jauron. I never in my life thought I would say this about any DC. Jauron had his team run away from scrimage, and this was actually better than the mess that Wanny has put forth. Disgusting. Absolutely sickening.

5) I don't even know who this kid Bradham is, but I thank him for caring enough to fight to make plays. Wanny will probably sit him and insert another defensive back. I am serious.

6) Goin' where the wind don't blow so strange,
Maybe off on some high cold mountain chain.
Lost one round but the price wasn't anything,
A knife in the back
And more of the same.

7) Dareus? Like the kid, but he is getting handled at will, and he has zero push.

8) Fitz? He makes sure to kill any chance the Bills have of getting back into any game. The pick after the really nice gain by Brad Smith on the wildcat was the last straw. He is not, nor will he ever be a good starting quarterback. Case closed.

9) He did it AGAIN!!! Wanny had 1 f-----g linebacker on the field on 3rd and 5, with approx 5 1/2 minutes left in the 3rd quarter. Of course, they ran it down our throats.

10) Mario? He played like utter garbage, a total non-factor. Don't be fooled by that one pressure. Smith just happened to run into him. He was blocked out of the play, as usual.

11) This is HUGE imo. On one play, Kelsay ran in to relieve Mario, who promptly waved him off. Kelsay ran back to the sidelines. This begs the questions.....Does Wanny have ANY control? Does Gailey? The answers are obvious. If it were up to me, I would keep Gailey until the end of the year, but again, Wanny should be fired TONIGHT!!!!!!!

12) Aaron Williams is a lousy cb. Period. He had one decent game, once. He will never be any good, so say hello to another first round corner.

13) Well, we are now a record setting, laughing stock. I would apologize to my daughters for making them Bills fans, but girls, believe it or not, it will help you in the end. You won't give up on things. And, you will be more loyal than others, and people will see it. People you care about will know it, and you will be trusted in turn, because of this. The Bills are a mess no doubt, but they are OUR mess.

14) GO BILLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I said it draft night, I said it in OTA's, I said it in TC, and I said it in preseason...Ron Brooks is the best corner on this team.  He will be the starter with Gilmore once he comes back, and he should be.  Him and Gilmore will be a formidable tandem for years to come.  A. Williams...at best a nickel back and with his lack of speed may be better suited for a backup FS as he gets burned all the time.

Graham looks good. He plays with spirit. Fitz just can't get the most out of him.

Gilmore has looked really shaky.

Lets not forget he is still a rookie and playing on a heartless D.  The kid has shown enough to still believe in his talent and potential where A Williams hasn't shown dick other than how not to play DB and that he is too slow

A couple of thoughts
1.   I said it in the game thread, does this coaching staff coach anybody up, as in improve?    Because I dont see it anywhere.
2.   Is George Wilson playing this season?    Talk about regressing
3.   Amazing how teams gash us up the gut, off tackle you name it, this front 4 is easy to block
4.   If we do take a DB next year in rd 1 or 2,  Im am done with this team
5.   Fitz should be lower in Jaws rankings because there are backups around the league better than this noodle arm who can only throw slants and screens
6..  If Chan or Wanny dont have answers, then resign and give somebody else a chance.
7.   These "southern footballs guys" dont know squat.
8.   This D needs some infusion next year of a vocal leader and some players with a nasty streak, along with self respect.
9.    I bring Talley in tomorrow to take a coaching position after someone is elevated after Wanny is fired.
10.  If this D cant get after Kolb and that crap line next week, then this team has hit rock bottom.

This.

I thought I noticed some lack of guys--again--in the middle. Thought he'd learn his lesson after the NE debacle.

F'ng despicable this coach is.

If the Colts would have played last year, like the Bills have played the last two games, the league would have denied them the First pick based on conspiracy to obtain a better draft pick.

1. Williams is a not a good DB, at least not in man. Always looks lost. Hes really turning into a bust.

2. This game could have been close if not for Gailey's horrific errant play calls at crucial times.  A pair of pass calls on 3rd and 2, one in red zone. Decision to call 2 pass plays at end of first half instead of running down the clock and settling for being one score down and getting ball to start 2nd half; leads to TD, 2 score deficit, and demoralized team headed into locker room. Last week it was the 1st goal from the 2 run Spiller w/ bad shoulder up the middle fumble.  

He could be an OC, but really has no business being a HC. NONE. Lacks judgement and management skills.  Hes a kevin gilbride at best. This game should have been all about keeping it close and giving your team a chance to win against a tough team on the road. Not trying to blow them out with an aerial attack.

3. Sheppard is a non-factor, blame the Dline all you want, but LBs mean a lot in run support.  Our secondary like Byrd are getting killed in run support, Its hard to watch.

4. Dont be shocked if Gailey sits Fitz sooner than later. hes been protecting him to save himself criticism given all the money theyre paying him.  but Gaileys a desperate man now going down and flailing. Hes already starting to blame players and looking for excuses.

5. I truly think the D is capable of playing well enough to win, but the lack of hope from an offense that turns it over, cant close the deal, and a head coach that makes idiotic decisions is wearing them out, physically and mentally.

Bill - When was the last time you were in WNY to see a Buffalo Bills football game?  Where were your daughters today during the game?

Well Bill, DJ should be available after the season when we predictably need another DC.  ;)

Maybe Buddy was scouting players and coaches this weekend on his west coast sojurn.  Either way at this point it feels like this is a runaway train that no one can stop.

Alex Smith even used the Patriots exact same line call as an audible check down.  "-random_defensive_back_01- is the Mike"

Great job Bill. Love the Dead lyrics. Bill Walton style.
A poster mentioned George Wilson.
I have always loved this guy, but he seems to have done very
little since coming back from his injury last year.
