Can the Bills run the table in final six games?
That’s the most asked question of me during the Bills bye week. The answer is No! They can’t win due to the fact the General Manager miss-mongered our roster and was forced to bring in Matt Barkley at QB, where Tyrod Taylor would have won some of our earlier losses (i.e. Houston, and possibly Chicago) that would have the Bills in serious contention for a playoff spot.
Bills General Manager Brandon Beene and Head Coach Sean McDermott were very poor in building this team and it’s going to show once again in last six games. The Bills beat the Jets last week but the Jaguars will bring pressure to Matt Barkley and he will remember who he really is and turn the ball over multiple times against the Jaguars.
You will see in coming weeks why Matt Barkley was home watching the NFL games like the rest of us. The Bills best defensive players are currently Shaq Lawson, Matt Miliano, Jerry Hughes, and a very steady Tre Davious White, Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer. These guys continue to step their game up and make key plays week after week.
It’s a shame their tremendous defensive plays have been over shadowed and wasted by a sorry offense. Zay Jones continues to improve and impress with his ability to run excellent routes and get open. He seems to have fully recovered from Knee surgery and has a bright future with the Bills. The game in Houston was his coming out party with superb route running and use of his speed to get open and caught what could have been the winning TD in a devastating loss to Texans.
Colin Kaepernick’s attorneys have all the examples they need to prove his case of collusion against him by the NFL owners. There are too many terrible starting g QB’s in the league and Kap did not get a call from Jacksonville, Buffalo, Denver, NY Giants, Jets, Miami, and now Washington (Alex Smith broken his leg) are in desperate need of a franchise QB. Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson made his debut on Sunday and led his team to an impressive win over Cincinnati Bengals. Something is seriously wrong when most people outside of NFL teams felt he was the best QB in the draft? Jackson was taken last in the first round with the 32md pick.
The Bills passed on him along with franchise QB’s DeShaun Watson, and Patrick Mahomes. The Bills drafted an obscure QB out of Wyoming, who was not even a good college QB and put up terrible stats against quality college opponents. Josh Allen has also shown in college to be injury prone. It’s no surprise Josh has a serious elbow injury and Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota has a similar elbow injury and reinjured it on Sunday and is out indefinitely. The Bills need an experienced General Manager that can bring in quality starters on the offensive line and keep Head Coach Dean McDermott on the right track.
No more Peterman experiments (starting players that are not NFL ready or quality)! The Bills front office right now is a reactive administration instead of being proactive. The Bills play the Jacksonville Jaguars in a game which will be dominated by defenses. I expect plenty of turnovers by both teams and the Bills beating a deflated Jaguar team after a heartbreaking loss to the Steelers. The Jaguars should have picked up Tyrod Taylor instead of keeping inaccurate throwing and turnover machine Blake Bortles. How is Bortles still starting in the NFL? My prediction: The Bills will win another ugly game 13-10.
