Not as painful as watching captain hang on Bledsoe at QB. The only good move Ralph has made in the new milenium!

Hmm...ya don't say:

I'm at the point where I don't think they should blow it up anymore, just demote Gailey. If he were OC he wouldn't get situational authority. No head coach with a brain would let him run a play with the game on the line that gave WR a route hes never ran before,

Still mad he was in that late in the game. It was long over.

Eh it's not looking good for the offense right now. I don't think they're going to be able to do much today.

Need to get more than 2 yards running. Have to run the football more to keep the pass rush honest. I expect to see some draws.

This whole drive was set up by a big gain by Spiller on third down and, of course, Gailey has benched ever since.

That 3rd down should have been converted, but good looking drive. Like using playaction of rolling Fitz out to get time to throw...should do more of that.

Really surprised we haven't seen a draw play yet.

I like seeing Fitzpatrick under center more. At least it gives the illusion that we might run the ball.

The Bills march into scoring position and Spiller didn't get a single touch after that third down play. How can a single NFL coach be this stupid?

Carrington has finally arrived...he might be playing better than Dareus right now.

This defense looks completely different than it did earlier in the year. LOVE seeing those blitz packages.

Did we get a new D-coordinator? I see pressure! And blitzing!

Nice completion to Chandler, but PLEASE Gailey don't get too pass happy.

That is freddie's 4th redzone fumble if I'm not mistaken.

Why do they keep feeding him the rock when he keeps coughing it up?

Actually good stop by them. It's just that it's like pulling teeth lately to get anything from the offense, it sucks to waste an opportunity and a few big plays like that.

I still don't know how we couldn't find a better punter than Powell. He just doesn't have the leg....

PS- so is that a sack fumble even if Bradford picked it up and gained a yard?

No sack I believe, but it is a forced fumble credited to Williams.

He's definitely been a different player since the bye week surgery and more what we expected. Granted, it also coincides with weaker opponents...

Interesting... had we recovered it, it would be a sack fumble.... He did strip the ball behind the line of scrimmage.

Not that it really matters, still a good play.

Not having Wood is probably killing the screen/draw game...but you gotta run some draws to keep the rushers honest. Get them running behind the play...Spiller just needs a crack and there's open field.
