And less dumb play calling. The coaching staff literally refused to run the ball out of anything but the shot gun, and once the pats figured that out, cj/fred got stuffed all day. Fitz can't sling it around 30+ times a game without having some problems. The bills offense is at its best when the run sets up the pass, and fitz can do more game managing. I'd honestly prefer to see less spread offense and more 3 wideout, single back sets w/ some play action mixed in to throw teams off. Although kudos to gailey and co for having him take some shots deep. at least make defenses think about that a little.

San Francisco not having a good offense certainly plays a role into this

I agree with you somewhat but that loss isn't on Fitz. The D was lost from the 1st snap of the 2nd half. Did they even force a punt? Fitz started throwing those picks when they were down 14. The Spiller and Jackson fumbles I think were more costly.

If the 49ers win by 9 or less or lose we're in good shape

Apparently, the NFL is "looking into" Mario Williams's injury since the team has not put him on the injury report...

I agree. We we're down, the defense couldn't get a stop, and we couldn't run the ball, so what was Fitz supposed to do? He had start taking risks.

You can't be a "game manager" under those conditions.

Can the Bills just go ahead and draft 7 QBs next year?

In all seriousness, the Bills NEED to draft a QB next year...and not a 6th or 7th round token QB pick.

It doesn't appear there is any Luck/RGIII type this year but it is still early. It seems like there will be really good depth regardless: Barkley (USC), Smith (WVU), Wilson (Arkansas), Bray (TEN), Thomas (VT), Glennon (NC State), Jones (Oklahoma), Murray (Georgia), Manual (FSU), Boyd (Clemson). Granted, some of these guys are Juniors but there appears to be a lot to like about this year's QB class.

I find it depressing how good the Dolphins are. We're probably the worst team in the division.

Our defense is always going to give up big plays. Very frustrating. Hopefully we respond. Not likely against 9ers defense.

They bit hard on that play fake....but it was a nice stand at the goal line.

I can't understand why anyone would kickoff to McKelvin's side.

Yay, first down! Against this D that's almost as good as a score!

That was a terrible play call. You can't run an end around on the edge of FG range.

Gailey cost the team a FG chance with that absurd play call on 2nd down. I don't know why they thought that play had any chance of success with SF's linebacking corps.

I don't even blame the offense for blowing that opportunity. That was absolutely TERRIBLE play calling. Completely moronic.

Remember at one point Jim Harbaugh was a candidate to coach the Bills? I don't know how serious that was (probably not very considering the Bills history with coaching hires). We ended up with Gailey and San Fran ended up a SuperBowl contender.

Another team having your number doesn't neccessarily mean they're better than you. The Jets are going downhill fast. Of course, if our defense is actually this bad....so are we

Bailed out by the penalty.

Not a big fan of just giving up 15 yards of field position there, though considering our defense I suppose it's best.
