Keys to the game vs the Bills.

On offense.

 

1. No more stalled drives. Too many times this team will move the ball to around midfield and then all of a sudden not be able to convert a third down and cost us a chance to at least attempt a field goal.

 

2. Control the clock. Our defense was exhausted last week and it showed on that final drive where the Seahawks played keep away. Part of the problem was Russell's scrambling ability, part of it was their repeating of downs because of a hold call, getting them extra opportunities that ultimately didn't help their cause in scoring points but did require more snaps from our Defense.

 

3. Be willing to take some chances on 4th and short. Obviously this needs to be within reason but if we are just outside of field goal range I'd rather take a chance on converting the first and keeping the drive alive vs punting and gaining 10-20 yards in field position. I wouldn't recommend this every week but their offense does not scare me into thinking those 10 -20 yards will make a huge difference.

 

 

On defense.

 

1. Don't let their run game get going. Stack the box and see what the rookie can do when forced to win the game with his arm.

 

2. Contain Stevie Johnson and don't leave Captian or Josh Thomas on an island against him.

 

3. Wrap up and don't let them dink and dunk us all the way down the field. I have a feeling they are going to want to get their running backs out in open space and see if they can break it on us. The linebackers and safeties need to keep an eye on this and make the tackles on first contact.

throw some weird looks at ej manuel - he'll make mistakes. blitz him but beware of his dumpoffs and blitzes designed to take advantage (since that seems to be his game.)

 

offense needs to score early and often. force manuel to air it out. he'll make mistakes.

 

special teams... don't be fuging stupid.

 

 

do all these and we walk out with a tasty win

i really agree wth this...

I still don't understand this. We are so inconsistent with handling underperforming players.

 

We just cut Joe Adams after only one season, and didn't even flinch.

i wasn't talking about benching him for the whole season, but for the game on special teams...or at least geting him out of that role where he can get pushed. if that happens three times in two games, we have a problem with either him or him being targetted and not being able to handle it.

 

regardless, it would be a mistake to keep putting him back into a position where things just have a way of going wrong.

When his only job is special teams, skip the benching, say goodbye, and just find someone else to do the job.

 

The whole reason he was supposedly kept over Poole was because he could contribute on special teams, or so we thought. Unless our idea of contribution is getting ejected, and costing us crucial yards late in the game lol.

 

We've had a horrific special teams long enough.
