    I'm all for getting stops at the end against a rookie you let embarrass you earlier in the game. Our D isn't known for coming up big late in games for some time now, so that is a positive.

     



    Yeah those 14 points and 150 passing yards sure was embarrassing.  Are you high?

     



    Why do you waste your time. Babe is the exact polar opposite of Rusty. Neither one can be objective because they paint themselves into a corner with their rhetoric over Brady.

    One has a love affair with him and the other will find a way to blame a rainy day on him. They are opposite sides of the same coin.

    I'm not high, but if you aren't maybe you should twist up a party h00ter and try something different, because you are missing the boat with this spin.

    The Bills had the ball for 22 minutes. They had 10 penalties for 75 yards. Were you expecting he would throw for 400 yards in that mess? LMAO

    The FACT is, a rookie NOBODY was extremely effective against this D, and any honest person has to admit that is a concern just as it has been for some years now.

    I'm not going to tolerate this Rusty nonsense that the D was good because the Bills O only scored 14 points. THEY screwed up over and over. We ate up the clock. It wasn't our great defensive play that kept the score lower. Hell, one of the fumbles wasn't even from contact.

     




    There are so many things wrong with this post.  First of all it is ridiculous to give the offense all of the credit for ToP.  Aren't you the guy that solely blames the defense in SB46 for the lopsided ToP?  So if we win ToP all credit goes to the offense and if we lose it all blame goes to the D.  Unreal.  Maybe the reason the Bills only had the ball for 22 minutes is they couldn't move it?

    The Bills had 13 possessions yesterday which means the offense wasn't just slowing the game down the whole time and limiting possessions. 

    Yesterday the Defense held the bills to 1.08 points per possession, 22 yards per possession and a 30.8% 3rd down conversion rate.  All 3 of those figures WOULD HAVE LED THE NFL LAST SEASON.  Plus they forced 2 turnovers which gave the offense two short fields which resulted in TDs.  To say any part of the Bills' offense was "extremely effective" is laughable. 

    I'm not ready to anoint this squad the 2000 Ravens after one game and it is true that we'll get a better sense as the season goes on for how this D is going to come together, but the fact that you are trying to spin this game as a negative for the defense is crazy imo.  At the very least is should be neutral because of the opponent.

    Oh, you mean like when Spiller lost control of the ball untouched while changing from one hand to the other? LMAO@U



    Way to ignore the rest of my post.  You are wrong btw.  Watch the replay.

    So, it's exactly as I stated. I've taken 4 drives that resulted in no points, a turnover and 74 yards and am trying to spin them as negatives for the defense so that I can push my agenda that the rookie QB led offense was effective despite all of the efficiency stats to the contrary.



    Fixed that for you.  LMAO @ your spin.

    286 yards allowed...  That's 8th in the league.  There's your top 10 defense...!

     

    For now...  Lol.

    The replay showed the ball coming lose before contact was made. LMAO@U



    So first it was a no contact fumble and now you are saying the ball was coming loose before Arrington PUT HIS FREAKING HANDS ON IT.  Backpedal much?  Literally every media outlet and the NFL counted that as a FF for Arrington.  LMAO @ your spin.

    It is only week 1, but my thoughts on the defense are not far off what i thought before. Our starters if healthy look like a pretty good group and one you wouldnt want to go against. The thing is we are only an injury or 2 away from being a defense that you would love to go against.  I was impressed with the front 7 and the diff. guys I saw on the field. I understand it was a rookie QB, but it was also a rookie running QB with little to no film on file. So BB had to be cautious. Clog the running lanes and hope he would be off target. I didnt see EJ make any amazing throws. Just a couple routines plays. He was free of pressure for the most part because BB didnt come after him. I expect more on Thursday with Geno Smith. Just let him make mistakes on his own and dont allow him to run. Get used to it. We will win again tho' and all thats matters. I like the D so far barring injury

    It's a new season and babe is back to his tired old whine that ALL points scored are the fault of the defense. Fumble run back for afault TD...defenses fault. Points scored by the Bills offense from a short field due to a turnover...defense's fault.

    Bottom line after all is said and done is that the pass rush was less than needed (and less than at least I expected). That does nto mean it will be weak all season but it was not a good start. 

    The rest of the D, especially the secondary, will look much better if and when we get this down. But it does need to improve if we are going far into the playoffs.

    I simply say it's disturbing that some recently injured rookie from FS in his first NFL game puts up a 105 on our D, and I am beset by foaming at the mouth homers for the reasonable observation. LMAO Learn the game.




    Overall, it was a bad all around game by the team. It was an ugly win, but an ugly win is better than an ugly loss. I will take it.

    I was disappointed that the OL couldn't handle the Bills DL. Whether we like it or not, the Bills did a good job annoying Brady. It didn't help that there were some untimely turnovers by the offense - that could have/should not had happened.

    You extrapolated from that statistic that the defense didn't play well.  In fact you said "they don't hand out awards for that kind of performance" and that the Bills' offense was "effective" and "embarrassed" the Pats' defense.  The facts I have pointed out say otherwise, but feel free to add your "context" to them to try and spin your way out of efficiency stats that would have led the NFL last season.  LMAO @ U.
