Buffalo is Bizzaro Carolina

34 posts in this topic

I just finished watching the Patriots at Bills game from Sunday.

 

I gotta tell you, I feel exactly like I just watched a Carolina game.

 

Buffalo:

 

- Good performance from QB with a mistake here or there thrown in. Had a really good run to keep a drive alive.

- One shifty RB, one bruiser RB

- Offensive line suspect at times

- Overall good defense that got winded late in the game and allowed a game winning drive with big plays downfield

- Bone headed mistakes that can't be explained. For instance, kickoff return getting bobbled and accidentally stepping out of the end zone, ball on the 10. This could have been the difference in the game.

- Offense looks lost and defeated in the 4th quarter.

 

All in all they did some things right, they just don't know how to win.

 

I am now feeling like this game in Buffalo will go into overtime with the winner being the team that doesn't fug up.

These teams are very similar.  I think our DL and their DL are strengths too, and both have secondaries that are weak (at least they can blame injuries).

 

I think, however, our DL puts more pressure on the rookie QB and that leads to more mistakes. 

 

The Patriots aren't that good. 

 

I see Carolina 34-17 based on the injuries to the Buffalo secondary and the fact that we are facing a QB who was inconsistent in college playing his second pro game.

I thought the exact same thing when I watched them. Remind me a lot of us.

Based on the thread title, I have a new prediction for the game.

 

 

EJ Manuel realizes Cam is the real superman, and throws a pick 6 to win us the game. We fly off into the sunset and leave Buffalo to their fate...

I watched the condensed version from nfl network last night myself.

I came away with the impression that we should beat them handily quite honestly.

Also think the Patriots are going to have the worst year they have had in a long time and might even miss the playoffs.

The only way the Patriots miss the playoffs is if Brady gets hurt, and even then they'd have a shot.

 

The AFC East division is absolute garbage. They could have gone 8-8 last year and made the playoffs.

I don't feel good about this game at all.

 

Me neither, sadly. Hopefully it is just a recently acquired STD and not something important like football.

    • Im pretty sure he was white as a ghost in the comics bro
    • They're results, not skillsets.  Too many factors go into those results to get a conclusive evaluation.  For instance, how many times was Howard targeted downfield compared to Njoku?  How was he used in the redzone...as a receiver, blocker, the primary option, and so forth? And yards after contact is a very inconsistent measure since not all contact is the same, nor are the situations in which a player gets the ball.  Not to mention the role the offensive scheme and surrounding talent plays.  Heck, if all we had to do was look at the numbers, there wouldn't be any need for the combine, all-star games, pro days, private workouts, etc.  Teams could just pull out the stat sheet and make their selections.  No, teams look for the skillsets a player possesses to determine how they translate to the NFL.  Stats are only an indicator to use as part of the puzzle.  So, just looking at the actual skills, what does Njoku possess that is superior to Howard?  Has he shown better hands?  Has he shown he can run better routes?  Is he a better athlete?  Is he a better blocker? The answer is no to all of them.  Does that mean Njoku is a bad player?  Absolutely not.  But Howard clearly has the better tools, and is considered the better prospect by virtually every evaluator for a reason.
