    What a sloppy sloppy game.
    After last week (even though we lost) I was pretty pleased with the team.
    These was just bad.
    Penalties were horrible!
    Offense played badly, and don't even get me started on the D.
    Granted they made some big plays, but meh... I seriously thought we could do it there at the end, but we didn't deserve it.
    Bills outplayed us and deserved to win that game.

    Complete game.
    We have to play a complete game.

    72 on O and the D-line offside calls killed us today.
    I just have to add to this statement.
    We could have won this game with a FG from where we were at b4 the last play. That would have been posible if the D would have tackled Pierre PRICEless.

    The D could have played better also.
    TEAM EFFORT not a complete game.
    It is easy to point fingers at the Offense, they are an easy target, not scoring and all.

    To add to the questionable playcalling:
    The two point conversion.
    Before the offsides, we were in a spread, empty backfield.
    Why did we spend a ton of money on a great left side of the line if we don't run it when we need 2 yards.
    Atleast have the threat of the run and put someone in the backfield.

    Then they call a slant which even if Taylor caught it, he would have had to made a great play to get in.

    What we did wrong was not running the ball enough in the start of the game. We should have worn down the Bills D, but failed to do that. Later on it was just too dificult with them knowing we were coming in passing a lot.

    Other than that, once again we played a game with a lot of penalties. Even though the Bills did worse than we did, we surely got something to clean up.

    And you can't have those crazy fouls on the ST, that's got to get worked out.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    While the defensive tackling was horrendous, they still managed to hold the Bills to 17 points after being on the field for a heckuvalot more time than they should have been had the offense been able to pick up more than one 1st down on a drive all game. You're right tholugh, this loss is on everyone, with at least half the blame on the play-calling.

    If you havn't noticed when we try to run the ball we loose yardage, defenses want us to run it, they have 9 guys in the box chilling. To run the ball we will have to set it up with the pass or at least be somewhat consistent with the pass. Stupid penalties put us in bad situations where its hard to run. Smoots bad tackling and piss poor coverage put our team in a bind, playing from behind most of the game.

    Well, gee.
    On a good note, they finally scored an offensive TD after 16 quarters.

    After watching that I'm jumping on the bandwagon for upgrading our WR's.
    I thought guys would stepup but obviously not.
    I think Todd Pinkston would have been an upgrade to what we have.
    Billy Mcmullen and Maurice Mann just aren't the answer.

    The Bills earned the W, the Vikes had plenty of opportunties.
    The threee short-fields in a row resulting in three 3-and-outs and 0 pts was pathetic.

    Too bad someone didn't drill Peerless when he caught that ball on his knees and ran it in.
    That reminded me of that Packers reception a few years ago.

    The defenese made plenty of mistakes, but I liked their play overall.
    They held the Bills to 17 pts.
    If we can't win a game when we're holding the opponents to an average of 16 pts in four games it's pretty sad.
    A team hasn't even broke 20 on us yet.
    I put that on the shoulders of the offense not living up to their end of the bargain.

    Penalties.
    WTF?
    This has been pathetic, sure hope they get that under control.

    I was primarily worried about the Bills D going into this game and the lack of production on our O.
    That's exactly how it played out.

    As far as I'm concerned, we're still ahead of schedule based on my preseason predictions, if we can go into the bye at 3-2 I'll be happy...as long as they're showing improvement.
    After this week I have to stretch my imagination a lot more in order to convince myself that there is any improvement over last week.
