Hey casey! I can only imagine how excited you are today. Heartfelt wishes for a Bills win over the Texans. I would absolutely love to see your Bills come to Baltimore next week to face our Ravens … AGAIN (BUT THIS TIME IN OUR HOUSE)!!!! What an exciting game that will be. So, the absolute best of luck today, and GO GO BUFFALO!!!!!January 5, 2020 at 1:16 am #56752
Because I have. It’s still in OT. I know Josh is young, but he’s made some really bad decisions under pressure. I disagree with trying to throw the home run ball rather than running a 5-10 yard slant or crossing route to Beasley.
No matter what, it was a very entertaining game. Houston made adjustments at halftime that paid off. Hats off to Watson for staying upright when two defenders hit him.
You have a goid young QB, Singletary reminds me of Barry Sanders and you definitely have something to build on. I was really hoping they’d get a W for you. I have a feeling y’all will win the division next season. Hugs my friend.January 5, 2020 at 3:02 pm #56753
Allen proved he’s not ready for playoff pressure yet – still trying to play “hero ball ” Although that could have been a coach call. Coach McDermott made some bonehead decisions, like not going for 4th and 1 when he’d been doing it all season. Not using Singletary enough (the guy had the highest yards per carry in the league!), putting in nobody FB Demarco – why?!! Plus officiating was horrendous, not catching the obvious Houston delay of game in a crucial situation. Will Allen mature enough? He made nice strides this year, hope the 3rd is the charm. The Bills still need a big key receiver to get them over the offensive under 20 points hump they’ve shown all season.
But the loss was softened by the Pats losing and Brady I’d swear moving on. Will he join another team at going on 43? Or will he retire?January 5, 2020 at 3:30 pm #56754
and I could cry for the Bills. It’s been so long since they’ve been in the playoffs. What makes me so sad is I thought, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that the way the game started off with the Bills leading 16-zip, and the normally confident and reliable Texans seemingly having a bad day, that the Bills were surely going to win. So, I choose to chalk it up to a very good, but very inexperienced young QB who may have still been a little overwhelmed with the big dance and what it means just to be there. I know Josh will survive this, as we all will, but it doesn’t mean it doesn’t hurt getting this close to victory and then having to watch it disappear. Seeing Josh’s face at the end of the game told it all. The young man looked very close to crying in disbelief, as I’m sure we all were.
But, he’s a great QB, one who WILL accept their defeat with dignity and understand that their day is looming on a very successful future. Yes, he made some mistakes, but they were ones I’m sure he has already learned from. This is, in the words of the great Al Pachino, an "Any Given Sunday" game, and these teams and their players and coaches are ALL professionals, or they would NOT be in the NFL to begin with.
So for Josh, I’m sure he’ll shake it off at some point and prepare his mind and his future on what happened yesterday, and come out all the better for it in the future. So, Ill say it with confidence: yesterday’s loss will be tomorrow’s lessons learned. There is not a single doubt in my mind that the Bills are looking at a bright future with this young team of super-talents, and most especially with Josh Allen!!!
I’m sitting here today worrying like hell about facing a team we have never faced before, because like it or not, Tannehill and the Titans are a team on the rise as well. Just hope we can handle them. If we do not, I will be practicing next week what I am preaching today. After all, winning is great, but losing is an uncomfortable mindset which tells us, always, to pick ourselves up, brush outselves off, and start all over again!!!!January 5, 2020 at 8:50 pm #56755dvalParticipant
I kept thinking about you all through the game. It sure seemed like you had it locked but I guess Texas had other ideas. Your quarterback will learn from this experience and hopefully get you back there next year.
Patti those Titans did look pretty good yesterday. I was kind of glad to see Bellichick get a dose of his own medicine with the delay of game calls since he laughed about pulling the same stunt on the Jets…what goes around comes around I guess. But you won’t have to worry about them pulling that same trick twice, I’m sure. I’ll be rooting for Baltimore next week. I just said to my husband it’s the first time we will have to root for a team we actually like in the Super Bowl as opposed to rooting against one!January 6, 2020 at 1:41 pm #56756
Patti, I’ll be rooting for Baltimore as well and I’m sure other Jags fans will be doing so as well. The first order of business will be to stop Eddie Henry. The guy is a beast! (He went to high school 45 minutes from where I live.)
We were treated to 4 entertaining games this past weekend, so hopefully the round will be exciting as well.January 6, 2020 at 1:50 pm #56757
… regarding Allen needing a big time receiver. Sunday morning I was talking to my friend Mike in Detroit and mentioned the lack of using Singletary especially in the 4th quarter. The kid is a magician as he can find holes where nobody else can see them!
I don’t think Brady will go out on a pick 6 even though it was a deflection. He’s too great of a QB to leave on that note.January 6, 2020 at 3:07 pm #56758
will continue on but likely not with the Pats. He’ll be the Golden Calf during free agency and have his pick. I would guess the west will be his choice, being a California guy. Will Phil Rivers keep on? He’s about as keen on playing as Brady but he’s getting up in age too and the Chargers were nothing this year.January 6, 2020 at 3:12 pm #56759
in his post game media appearances was as dejected as I’ve seen him. Normally always upbeat (and btw such a likable kid) I think he took the loss on himself especially with the turnover. But he’s an incredibly hard worker and look forward to seeing another leap ahead next year.
As for the Titans, boy that Henry is some talent! 182 yards against a stout Pats defense? Still, I cannot see them beating your Ravens.
Such surprises this weekend with OTs and the Saints losing to Vikings. Didn’t see that coming!January 12, 2020 at 11:53 am #56769dvalParticipant
OMG. So sorry about your Ravens. What a shock. Henry just seems impossible to stop. I can only guess how disappointed you are.January 12, 2020 at 3:10 pm #56770
Boy, the Titans really lived up to their name. They were no juggernaut when the Bills beat them earlier this season but have been coming on the last few weeks. Henry is a phenomenal force considering QB Tannehill has only had to throw for under 100 yards and the Tenn. D is stout.
I and most people figured no one could stop the Ravens freight train. Don’t know how much it was a tightness on the part of the Ravs and/or the power/peaking at the right time of the Titans. The Ravs just did not look like themselves.
Condolences to you and all Baltimore followers.January 12, 2020 at 3:56 pm #56771
but I’m sure I couldn’t possible feel worse than Lamar today; a kid who takes blame rather than praise time after time. But this was exceptionally hard to swallow and hurts more than any other loss in our history to date. Lamar has said it time and time again, his goal has always been to go to and win the SB, plus he hates losing any game, but this one had to be devestating to him and the entire team. I know it was to the fans. We just couldn’t do anything right all day long, and the Titans took advantage of our mistakes every time we made them, and there were many. Fortunately, we’re a young team with a great offense, defense, and special teams and now we have to put it behind us. We had a great season and, truth is, nobody saw us doing what we did this year to begin with. That being said, we’ll be ready next year. It should be fun watching the adjustments that will undoubtedly be made. I’m proud of the Ravens. Overall, it was a better year than I could have ever imagined. Lamar will shake it off and come back a year older and light-years better; but for now, there’s no excuse for the butt-kicking we took yesterday, and deservedly so. In the words of the great coach, Bilicheck, the fact is they were better than us yesterday. Hey, we still have the Packers to root for in our little club here, so good luck to your Pack today powerpaws2. At least one of us is still in it to win it! It’s been a fun season ladies! Thanks to all for your support!January 12, 2020 at 11:18 pm #56772
.. so thanks for breaking the ice. I would have understood a close game because TN played so well in NE, but I was shocked by what happened yesterday. Maybe it was a mistake to rest starters during the last regular season game. I dunno, all I can say is I’m so disappointed for you.
Eddie Henry is a beast. He played high school ball in Yulee which is about 40 miles from my apartment. It will be interesting to see what KC can do to stop him.
The Pack will have their hands full so hopefully they can contain Russell Wilson.January 13, 2020 at 3:08 pm #56773
But I was so happy A&Co. won! It will be Aaron vs. Jimmy G next week and really anticipating this one. Those 2 3rd down passes by AR late in the 4th were beauties. I’m glad at least one of us still has a dog in the fight.January 13, 2020 at 4:34 pm #56775
Mine and Casey’s fight may be over for this season, but we still have a team to root for in your Packers. God bless Aaron, considered to be one of the "vets" of the game and still wiping the floor up with opponents. Couldn’t be more pleased and putting all my faith in Aaron and his Pack to take the fight out of the mouths of some who still believe this is a "young man’s game." Well, I have the right to say that’s pure B/S, and if anyone can prove it, it’s Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers. Best of luck in their continuing road to the SB.
