This game is first and foremost on Gailey.

--Not going for the endzone before the half.

--Wildcat, wildcat, wildcat.

--Passing almost exclusively in the 2nd half.

A good gameplan would mean this is still a game. Maybe the Texans still win, but it would at least be a 1 score game.

Words cannot express how much I can't stand having Jared Cook on my fantasy teams.

You're absolutely right. You can't point to the players. D did it's job. Special teams didn't screw up. Offense moved the ball in the first half.

This loss is entirely on the coach for how he called the game and used his players.

Chicago has 51 points against Tennessee....with 10:20 still on the clock

That Tennessee loss is the killer. We could have easily made a run from 4-5. Hell, if we beat Miami on that Thursday nighter we could still make a run from 4-6 with that ending schedule.

The receivers drops did not help though...

Not a lot of time to throw, little to no seperation from the recievers...tough day to be a QB

I love your optimism, but I just don't see how anybody can think that this team - with this QB and coach - can make a run, regardless of the schedule. I honestly don't see how this team can expect to win more than one or two games the rest of the season.

Well, he tried...but there's the turnover. Now just a first down to run out the clock.

Just curious, what is the Bills record since Fitz signed that contract extension?

*shrug* Even when I thought they were a playoff team, I never thought they'd be better than 4-5 after 9....they're only one behind that. The schedule is still extremely soft on the back side. Miami and maybe Indy are better than expected, but the other "best" team on the schedule doesn't travel well at all (Seattle)

I'd be stunned if they ended up with less than 6 wins, and if they get by Miami 8 or 9 is definitely attainable, which might be good enough to make the playoffs this year. I do think Miami is better than us, so that Thursday night game is a must win before I have any kind of optimism at all.

If the Bills backdoor cover the spread, I'm going to be very upset. I'm having a great day in my pool right now.

I never thought they were a playoff team. I guess that's where we differ. I can't see any team with Fitz and this group of receivers being anything more than a seven win team.

At this point in the season the only teams I think are worse than Buffalo are the Browns and Jacksonville.

Time to rotate some of the other receivers into the lineup.

I'm loving the garbage time fantasy points they're getting CJ!

Is there anybody in the NFL other than Nix and Gailey that think Fitz is a starting NFL QB?

The offense isn't even why this team is underachieving. Their numbers are not bad.

I just didn't expect a historically bad defense.

The conversation of this game is not going to degenrate into a Fitz witch hunt. He played pretty well today. His recievers weren't getting much seperation (and weren't hanging on to balls that were put on them in pressure), and he had little to no pass protection.

Oh, come on CBS. You switch to the interesting Colts vs. Miami game for about 30 seconds and then go to Denver and Cincy. I already get that game on another channel.

CJ's production level today is incredible, considering how little they used him.

The coach is the problem. If we stopped trying to ride Fitz like he was Brady, gave up the wildcat and focused the offense on Spiller/Jackson we would be in better shape.

Instead the idiot Gailey puts too much on Fitz and the receivers. It's somewhat unfair what he asks of them IMO.

If you're starting Cook weekly, you had better be in a deep league. Like 14+ teams. He's no where near starter material.

Another week, another game on Gailey and Wanny.

Run and blitz. Why can everyone outside of the Bills FO see that except for these two morons?

Fitz played pretty well.
