Do you think the Week 1 Bills/Jets game shaped the season for both teams?

Recommended Posts

I know it was only the first week of the season, but both teams went in different directions after that game. The Jets came into the season with sky high expectations, the Bills not so much. The Jets had a 16-0 lead at home in the second half, with a +3 or +4 turnover differential and were for the most part dominating the Bills. The Jets blew that lead in the 4th quarter, and since that game, the teams have had wildly different seasons. The Bills are in a decent position to make the playoffs (yes, that's my pessimism still showing), and the Jets have lost to a winless Bengals team and lost to a then-winless Dolphins team earlier in the season.

Could be...I think the real problem is if that is all it takes to side line a season you have the wrong coach...and wrong leaders on your team. That said...Jets have the wrong coach and with guys like Bell I can’t say the best leaders. Darnold is just too young...didn’t help he missed like 4 weeks and by then everyone packed it in. I like your Bills. Depending on the matchup I think they might even win a playoff game. I like the direction they are headed.

No one cares, it is the Bills and Jets. Even if they have New England on the ropes, some voodoo stuff will happen and New England will turn it around and win, remember? Bills could be on the verge of the playoffs and are leading New England in Foxboro, and Brady turns it around in 1 drive, you know that is what will happen, and the Bills' playoff hopes will come crashing down just like that.

 

Back at you with a taste of your own medicine with the "Debbie Downer" stuff. :thmup:

    • Can't figure out what's so "Sweet Jesus or Dear God" about surmising that it's possible that the state of the team and it's most important position being in flux is figuring into this potential retirement. I suppose we'd have to ask him with the caveat that he'd likely not throw anyone under the bus.   Could be one, or the other or a combination of both- or things we don't know about, but it won't be for the better if this team is without AC this year.    
    • If you have friends or family in Indy, slingbox is a great legal way to watch without a lot of expense (1X cost of the box). If you don't, and like tech stuff, check out Kodi and the sports addons. There are also several websites (not legal) that stream all the games.
    • Yeah I think he wants to win in general and the qb is a big factor in this   I think he will retire if he thinks it's a sub 500 team, maybe he would prefer a veteran over a rookie
    • I agree.  I think he'll come back too.    But I also think our QB situation makes every practice and every game seem more like work than fun.  If you're going to lose, have little hope of winning, that's kind of a different place than he has been with PM or Luck.  Even when they were injured, there was a light at the end of the tunnel. Every injury or pain becomes magnified when you're cause is hopeless, and he's probably not in a position for doing it all for the money.     I also wouldn't be surprised to see this drag on to where we get a better handle on the QB or roster, if Ballard allows it to drag on that far.  Frankly, I'm not sure that it didn't play a part in Luck's decision, thinking how much he would put himself at risk if he thought he had to carry the team.     Being dispassionately objective, what QB wouldn't want to go to the SB having to throw only 7 passes instead of 50?  LOL.  That current obscure leg injury seemed overblown as to its impact on his decision, but that's another topic.
    • Regarding watching preseason games outside local market..   I'm not in the local market, but I watch preseason games live via nfl.gamepass ($99 / year).  For regular season games, gamepass gives you the live local radio broadcast during the game, then you can watch the video broadcast right after the game ends.   My game day routine is to listen to the live radio broadcast (with gamepass) and follow the live game cast on either espn or nfl.com.  Then once the game is over I can watch the video broadcast of the game on gamepass (commercial breaks and halftime are removed from this feed).
