Bills need to let Lindell and Potter go, and stick with a young kid who has a big leg. Not having a kicker with the leg/accuracy to even try 50 yarders is extremely alarming, if playoffs are on the line and we have the ball at the 35 down by 2 with one second left and due to our inept kickers we would have to try to score a TD in that situation since our kicker hasn't tried a 50 yarder for almost the last three seasons?!? That's pathetic.

I was surprised they didn't try Potter on FGs in preseason. With his leg, if he can hit them now you've got a leg with incredible range. Wouldn't get rid of him...he might actually be the kid with the big leg.
Well, all I know is that I face-palmed when comparing this to our kicking game/decisions; it's embarrassing that there are kids out there with more poise and leg than our kicker/specialist tandem:

When I start to think that way, I remember that this is the Bills we're talking about here... and someone will always find a way to leave and/or get paid, to injured reserve or to self-destruct.

Nice you tube, but I am almost positive that kick was off of a tee. Makes a huge difference.

No way I'd give a 2nd OR a 3rd, much less both, for a receiver Fitz won't even be able to get the ball to. Those rumors better be false.

Bills need this game today. Hopefully if they shut down CJ and Gailey isn't a moron this week (that's asking alot), we dominate with spiller/fred and limit fitz to game managing and get the W

I don't see a tee and there is a holder that takes the hike and is holding it down with a finger. I don't see how he could put it on a tee that quickly and easily. I think its legit and if it wasn't I think you would see/hear the disclaimer that it was aided by a tee.

If the Bills really needed to hit a long FG, I'd be curious as to what Potter could do. Although his touchbacks have been disappointing.

I'll tell you what. Some bills defensive end just exploded off the line faster than anything I've ever seen before, and a step up stopped him from getting a sack.

He was #56.

That series was brutal, they got a first down on just about every play.

Brutal, brutal opening drive for the Bills defense. It's like they weren't even there. Just awful.

The pressure was there but they just can't cover for ****. You can't expect to get sacks when the QB can get rid of the ball to his first or second read every play.

Second and 12 and Gailey calls a wildcat run up the middle. Ugh.

That was a well designed TD play. The Bills have somehow managed to build an offense around various screen passes.

also, I'd put Spiller and Jackson out there together a heck of a lot more. Give the defenses more to worry about.

Nice drive there. Overcame that idiot penalty and that one curious play call. I get the feeling the Bills RBs might just gash the Titans today.

Has a defensive coordinator ever been fired during the first quarter of a game?
