Ask any Bills fan and all of them will say that this afternoon's game against the NY Jets was a crucial game in our hopeful season. After the outcome, I'm sure many Bills fans are irrate!
I would like to point out, in my opinion, the 2 biggest problems our beloved team had today...the O-Line and Perry Fewell's defensive calls.
Anyone else thing we've done better w/o an offensive line playing at all today? We couldn't run the ball and Trent was running for his life. Yes, Trent did hold onto the ball for too long a few times but overall he had no time what so ever to make something on offense happen. Langston Walker and Derrick Dockery are the 2 best lineman we have thus far. Peters is underacheiving like no other and our back-up RG and C are proving to me why they're back-up's. For the love...the Jets rushed 3 and Edwards had less then 2 seconds to get the ball out of his hands! The O-Line consistently got blown off the ball, allowed holes to be clogged for our running game, and gave Edwards no time what so ever to make plays for this promising team.
And now for Fewell's defensive calls. Brett Favre is 39yrs old...why did we not pressure him the entire game!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! Blitzes were working great in the 1st quarter and the Jets could not get anything going. Why did Fewell change his play calls up the rest of game. On crucial downs we were only sending our 4 D-Lineman and Favre had all the time in the world to pick us apart. Our run defense was stellar in the 1st 3 quarters but then disappeared in the 4th when it mattered the most. We have amazing talent on our defense and they're just playing up to their potential and I'm going to point the finger at Perry Fewell and his conservative and often times pathetic play calling. Greet made an outstanding play to help keep us in the game but again it was our run defense who allowed our team to be gashed in the final minutes of the contest.
I sure hope they pull their heads out of their butts for next weekends game against the Patriots because we cannot afford to go 0-3 in the division!
