lmao this is why Luck isn't playing

I was just thinking the same thing honestly. The line isn't ready, no point in dangering Luck.

Great pass protection there, just a bad pass by Tolzien. Dorsett was wide open for a 1st down. Now because of that Pat gets a Punt blocked. At least it's only a safety.

People need to remember though..1st year center, Good new at RG... so it's probably gonna take a number games to get it together.

I know people are already gonna start with our line is still trash and all that jazz and act like it's a dumpster fire already. Cause they expect our O line to all the sudden be great right off the bat. Not wanting to realize the new guys we got in there and the fact that Kelly had not seen alot of the looks he gonna see from NFL level defenses so it's gonna a learning time for him as far as being able to recognize things and make calls.

Yep, which is why pre-season games are so important. Let's give them learning experiences without worrying about the games counting.

No one's saying that right now. I mean, it's not like the line could've gotten any worse.

Bills seem to be running plays on offense and defense they would run in the regular season. Not anything vanilla.

Butler has looked terrible every play on defense so far. Green has looked alright! D line still getting nothing.

 

Sometimes I'm glad there are so many preseason games. Lol

That was a good throw from EJ.

I think it was probably one of the better fake handoffs I've seen in awhile can hardly blame butler

    • At my essential business, I know four people who acquired it out of about 50 people. Three of the four had only mild symptoms. One did have to be taken to a hospital and put on a respirator, but returned to work within a few weeks.   As long as you practice basic sanitizing (ie. washing your hands), don't have preexisting health conditions, aren't 70+ years old, and preferably don't smoke then you shouldn't have to worry. The biggest one is avoid touching your face; if you have to, use the inside of your shirt.
    • Hmm, my only question is if they test everyone for COVID before entering the building (and I presume they use hand sanitizer also?), then isn't all the other precautionary measures redundant?
    • I wouldn't go that far.....  
    • And I do respect and support it, doesn't mean I have to understand it because we have to face the fact that we can't isolate ourselves for months or years and that we can't avoid the risk of getting infected. Regardless of whether you are going to the supermarket or meeting with your family there are things you have to do and there is no 100% safety out there. You said it yourself: So many opportunities to get infected. Not only on the field or the football bubble but in real life that we simply can't avoid.    And If Joe Nobody can go to the office every day I think a football player can go on the field. And as I mentioned a football field is a much safer environment than an office with tests on a regular basis it's probably one of the safest places especially if they play the games without spectators. They say that it takes at least 15 minutes of realy close contact to an infected person to infect yourself in a closed room. And there are a lot of measures to minimize the risk like a max number of people in the training room etc. And yes Corona is a serious virus I don't doubt that but it's not the killer virus that is threatening to exterminate humanity. What we are facing now and that is noboby talking about is that we are dying a slow and steady economic and social death! But thats just my two cents.
    • First, I’m not sure it’s known just how much time you have to be near an infected to actually become infected yourself.      Second,  think of football this way...  every huddle, and there roughly 65-70 of them each side, each game is an opportunity.  Each play and tackle is an opportunity.   Every time a player goes in the team complex is an opportunity.   Every time you’re in the locker room, the weight room, the team meeting room, the positional meeting room, you name it, they are all opportunities.    There are so many different opportunities to get infected.     Plus, you talk about young people...   those people have their entire career in front of them.  The longer this drags out the more we learn that we don’t know as much as we thought we did.  That even when you’re Covid free many still report issues with their heart and lungs.  That’s not good for anyone,  especially athletes.  Young athletes are trying to protect their careers.    These decisions are complex, but you have to respect and support every decision,  no matter which way it goes.
