This is what worries me...Dennison is already lying to himself. I know he has to defend TT but you don't have to say this. The D kept them in the game and the Bills should have lost by 30. I don't think TT could have done much with that pedestrian game plan and the WRs we have. Made a good enough throw on the last drive and didn't get rewarded. I hate all these conservative coaches. The only way to win in the NFL consistently is to get up by 2 or 3 scores so one bad call by a ref or one unlucky break or missed assignment doesn't end up in a loss. Keeping us in the game talk is for coaches who will lose too many games on bad breaks just like Sunday!

 

I agree with pretty much all of this. However, one point : It's easy to mock Dennison's statement because Taylor had a bad game along with everyone else on the offense. But if I had to guess, his motivation wasn't self-delusion, but this : The only person on the offense remotely close to making plays in that debacle was the only person being blamed by fans and media. Looked at that way, I think you can understand Dennison's clumsy statement.

TT keeps us in games when the defense is playing great, and even then...if it comes down to the wire, he likely comes up short.

TT plays not to lose, and I despise that style of play.

Like the second Miami game when the Bills had to come back three times and finally take the lead because the defense was playing great. His deep balls to Watkins are playing to lose. I see. This scheme doesn't fit him he'll be gone in 2018 probably. If Peterman plays, I hope he does well. That's what a fan does. which isn't you.

Good point. I would just prefer Dennison take the pressure off by taking some responsibility and saying something like TT kept some drives alive and we had a shot but we have to get off to a better start.

Why do people say ignorant stuff like others aren't fans? If he wants to see us upgrade at QB because it will give us a better shot at sustained success then he wants the same thing as everyone else right? If he thinks Tyrod is a bum then that's his prerogative as a fan.

I think this keep it close and try to steal it in end Dick Jauron philosophy is especially dumb for a team like the Bills.

Late in the game when we need to score or stop a score, some mysterious flag will appear. We've seen it many times. Happened Sunday with the Holmes alleged push off. We're not going to get the calls. Think of Sherman holding Woods or whoever it was in the EZ last year.

The glamour teams like Patsies**, Hawks, Raiders etc. Will get them. Once we get to where we win consistent, we'll probably get them too.

Agreed. My dream is we see an extreme change in offensive philosophy Sunday.

One can dream, right? 0:)

It's obvious Taylor plays not to make the mistake.....He also leaves plays out in the field. A good portion of his meager passing stats are in gargage time. Im ready to move on.

I don't know why people get so excited about coach-speak.

 

Dennison is one of those coaches who doesn't like to denigrate his players in public.  Like a lot of leaders, Dennison tends to believe that you praise in public, criticize in private.  

 

Because he's that kind of coach, what he says and thinks in private is a complete mystery to us.  We can only speculate - but with very little to go on.

 

I know the scheme and game play for the Panthers sucked because I saw that with my own eyes.  But I don't know if Dennison has any delusions  about his QB.

Here's an article about his time in Denver.  That doesn't look like Dennison in the pic. Is that him?

 

http://www.denverpos...cos-old-friend/

 

Funny (and accurate) quote:

Well, this much we know is true about Dennison: He’s unafraid to win ugly. As fans in Broncos Country know all too well, Dennison will dial down the pace until an NFL game becomes little more than an excuse for a nap on the sofa.

If tyrod throws a touch pass on the corner route like a good quarterback would have we wouldn't be talking about all this, but he didn't plain and simple who cares if he keeps us in the game if he can't win it

Like tangoing, It takes 2 to complete a pass.

So then you loved Fitzpatrick's play.
