You have to play smart and not try to cut in these conditions.  Run downhill.  You have to change the way you play.  It becomes more of a power play.  You can't go out there and try to play like you're playing in perfect conditions.

You're right.  I noticed a few of the running backs slip a little when trying to cut.  Definitely have to be careful.

Oh yeah I was there!

 

Yeah same here!!!  Only 85 years ago, I should’ve contacted you via social media and we could’ve linked up.  I remember that day clearly, like it was yesterday.

CBS sent some scouts to find out in the first quarter. No one has heard from them since

On a positive note, this game will make our defensive stats look much better (for the year). :D 

We need that!  Don't speak too quick Blue...we still have the second half coming up.  Lets keep our fingers crossed for no polar implosions please.  lol

Yes...think of it as a rough game of soccer.  We might just yell GOOOOOAAAAL! if the Colts cross the pylons today.  lol

 

Also, in a game like this, field position matters a lot.  A drive where you can pick up 20-30 yards and punt actually helps you a lot.  In many games, a drive like that would be considered a failed drive.  In a game like this, it might take several drives like that to get you into scoring position.  It's a different game, but I like it because it's something that you rarely see now that the rules have been skewed so much in favor of the offense.  Nowadays, you score a go-ahead TD with 0:30 left in the game and you get criticized by your fans for leaving "too much time" for the other team to score.

So the Bills took timeouts to get the ball back and will now likely hand it off every down?

Use 4 running backs on direct snaps

        I dont think Buffalo's ever going to host the Super Bowl.

Just my guess

 

We were one day away from having weather like this for the Super Bowl in NJ when the Broncos forgot how to play football against the Seahawks.  We got hammered with a blizzard the Saturday before that game, but it cleared up by Sunday afternoon.

    • Simple reason. KC was missing the things that gave them their strength and identity. We were/are missing things that we didn't use well or often when healthy, and continue not to utilize them even when they are open.    If a baseball team is known for having bad pitching, but great bats, does it matter if their pitcher is out? Or is it worse if their #1 hitter is out?   And LOL at the other stuff. I'm sure I can guess who the pearl clutcher (s) is (are). One in particular is stalkerish via unsolicited PMs. I could care less what they or others think, especially if it's the one or ones I suspect. Questioning my fandom is pretty darn funny though. I'm not a fan because I disagree with certain narratives... sure... 
    • Florio is a *. He has no inside info. What he said was stupid.  If   their guy is there they will take him. They will not reach for a QB though. I do not see them taking a QB that late. What would be the purpose. They still have Kelly if they want a young backup. I doubt they take that big of a risk hoping a 3rd or 4thtd QB becomes the franchise.
    • I don't know if this has been discussed anywhere else on this forum but regarding Kelly and others, Reich and Ballard are always harping on competition and position battles to build a stronger team. It seems to me the 2 weakest areas on this team are the 2 they haven't allowed any competition, qb and kicker. Just an observation. I can't complain about being 6-6, I thought we'd go 11-5 or 10-6, just couldn't get it done in key moments of some games(the qb and kicker really let us down at times). It's not over yet though, if we can win out we still have a chance at the post season.
    • It was definitely not a good story ending for the underdogs, or a triumphant tale like Rudy, that's for darn sure..... All kids should have a similar experience though lol... It's a welcome to reality moment.    Finding tape on guys is much much easier that it used to be. I'm definitely no expert though. I'm just someone that prefers stats and film to watching a bunch of brainless TV shows lol.  It's more of something to do around the draft/FA period when there's not football to watch. To me, the more you know, the more interesting the season is. Also the more realistic you are about some guys.
    • To get this back on track. The more I read and hear from so called experts. It would not be shocking that Ballard just continues to build around JB and draft a QB in like round 3-4. You hear Florio say that the Colts are happy and moving forward with JB. Then you see these colts.com post these stats about the offense and JB particularly.    Colts Offense   Fourth in the NFL and second in the AFC in rushing yards (139 per game)   Tied for 10th in the NFL in fewest sacks allowed (24)   Ninth in the NFL in sack percentage allowed (6.14)   Fifth in the NFL in first downs per game (22.2)   Ninth in the NFL in third down conversion percentage (44.23)   Third in the NFL in 3rd-and-short [less than four yards] conversion percentage (72.9)   Fifth in the NFL in 3rd-and-10-plus conversion percentage (26.7)   Seventh in the NFL in fourth down conversion percentage (62.5)   Tied for fifth in the NFL in fourth downs converted (10)   Tied for eighth in the NFL in red zone touchdown scoring percentage (63.64)   Seventh in the NFL in average time of possession (31:26)   Tied for third in the NFL in touchdowns off 10-play drives (13)   Tied for fourth in the NFL in 10-play drives (26)   Second in the NFL in average number of plays on scoring drives (9.00)   Tied for third in the NFL in red zone touchdowns (28)   Tied for third in the NFL in players recording three or more receiving touchdowns (4)   10th in the NFL in PFF offensive rating (75.8)   10th in the NFL in PFF pass blocking rating (74.4)   Second in the NFL in PFF run blocking rating (82.6)   Quarterback Jacoby Brissett   Eighth in the AFC in completion percentage (64.3)   Tied for sixth in the AFC in passing touchdowns (16)   Fifth in the AFC in touchdown percentage (4.9)   Tied for sixth in the AFC in fewest interceptions (6)   Sixth in the AFC in interception percentage (1.8)   Sixth in the AFC in passer rating (93.2)   Sixth in the AFC in third down passer rating (88.7)   Tied for first in the NFL in third-and-one rushing conversion percentage (100)   Tied for fifth in the NFL in rushing touchdowns among quarterbacks (3)   Tied for sixth in the NFL in red zone passing touchdowns (14)   Tied for sixth in the NFL in passing touchdowns within 10-yard line (10)   10th in the NFL among qualified quarterbacks in fumbling grade (62.6)   Seventh in the NFL in undesigned QB scrambles (25)*   Eighth in the NFL in adjusted completion percentage (76.3)*   Tied for fourth in the NFL in fewest interceptions under pressure (1)*   Third in the NFL in completion percentage in clean pocket (75.0)*   Tied for 10th in the NFL in fewest interceptions in clean pocket (5)*   Third in the NFL in adjusted completion percentage in clean pocket (83.0)*   10th in the NFL in passer rating in clean pocket (107.5)*   Fifth in the NFL in play action completion percentage difference (7.0)*   Tied for fourth in the NFL in play action passing touchdowns (7)*   Tied for seventh in the NFL in fewest play action interceptions (1)*   Ninth in the NFL in play action completion percentage (69.3)*   Eighth in the NFL in play action passer rating (110.5)*   Tied for eighth in the NFL in fewest non-play action interceptions (5)*   Third in the NFL in average time in pocket (3.01 seconds)*   Fifth in the NFL in average time to run/scramble (5.61 seconds)*   First in the NFL in fewest percentage of dropbacks with ball held for less than 2.5 seconds (36.7)*   Tied for sixth in the NFL in completion percentage with ball held for less than 2.5 seconds (75.0)*   Ninth in the NFL in passer rating with ball held for less than 2.5 seconds (102.9)*   First in the NFL in dropbacks with ball held for more than 2.5 seconds (63.3)*   10th in the NFL in completion percentage with ball held for more than 2.5 seconds (58.2)*   Tied for seventh in the NFL in fewest interceptions with ball held for more than 2.5 seconds (3)*
