Buffalo Bills on Sunday afternoon Adolphus Washington Jerseys 2019 , crushing all hope from Buffalo’s offense en route to a 41-9 blowout by the Chicago Bears. Peterman threw three
interceptions on the day, though each one was the result of a bobbled pass by
his receiver. The Bills also coughed up a fumble. Two of those turnovers were
returned for touchdowns. Peterman must have angered an ancient Aztec god,
because his offensive career is quickly shaping into one of the worst in NFL
history. He now has 3 passing touchdowns against 12 interceptions in his young
career.The Bills offense finally scored a touchdown, 40 possessions after their
last touchdown, from week six. That’s as many as four tens. And that’s terrible.
Before that, they managed a field goal early in the second half, when the team
was down 28-0 and shouldn’t have settled for field goals anymore.The Bills spent
plenty of time experimenting with player reps today. Wyatt Teller and Jeremiah
Sirles played some time in place of Vlad Ducasse and Jordan Mills. Terrelle
Pryor and Logan Thomas ran routes and were targeted a few times. Marcus Murphy
and Chris Ivory took a significant number of reps over LeSean McCoy.It didn’t
really matter what they did. The players on this roster don’t have NFL-caliber
talent as a unit. There are no difference-makers, there are no consistent
winners. They cannot block. They cannot pass. They cannot get open. They cannot
run.The Bills are lucky they won two games earlier in the season. They might not
win another. This offense looks lost. The players walk around with thousand-yard
stares. They can’t even be trusted to win three yards when they need three
yards.The Bills defense played okay at times. They struggled to bottle up the
five-foot-six dynamo Tarik Cohen , and allowed two touchdowns by Jordan Howard, but also forced a fair number of
punts. They continued forcing fumbles, but weren’t able to create a turnover for
an offense that desperately needs them.NotesThese are the players that the Bills
should replace on this roster. And some suggestions for who could take over.Nate
Peterman should retire after this season to become a priest (or minor league
baseball player). Josh Allen needs to be the starting quarterback, and someone
else should stick around as the backup when Derek Anderson inevitably retires.
Just reach a hand into a hat of names.Russell Bodine isn’t good enough, and Ryan
Groy already proved he can’t anchor. The Bills could sign Matt Paradis or Mitch
Morse in the offseason, one of the few good offensive linemen in free agency
this year. It’ll cost nearly $10 million per year, but it’ll be worth it.Both
offensive guards need to be replaced. It would be a challenge, but offering big
bucks to D.J. Fluker White Frank Gore Jerseys , currently in Seattle, would be a great way to boost the run blocking inside. Chris Lindstrom and Garrett Bradbury, from BC and NC State,
respectively, would be great choices in the second round of the draft.Jordan
Mills has helped nothing at right tackle. There aren’t great options at right
tackle, except Bobbie Massie. In the draft, Jonah Williams is the best offensive
player available, and was an All-American right tackle for Alabama in the
past.Kelvin Benjamin is public enemy number one. The Bills really need a
receiver who can actually “Moss” someone Frank Gore Jerseys 2019 , not pretend to. Iowa State’s Hakeem Butler is that player. 6’6” 220 pounds, and stopping him in the open field is like tackling an eighteen
wheeler.Terrelle Pryor could be a contributor if he re-signed with the team, but
the Bills also need real playmaking speed they can trust every down. John Brown
is a free agent next year, one of the few speedsters who can hit the open
market. Marquise Brown and Anthony Johnson are two vertical threats in college
football.Charles Clay has no value for this team anymore. Jason Croom earned a
trial through the end of 2018. Noah Fant, TJ Hockensen, and Irv Smith (if they
declare) are great athletes with way better clutch genes. Officially, Bills
quarterback Josh Allen did not throw an interception in Friday night’s third
preseason game. But he knows he got away with one.Allen threw a bad pass that
was picked off, only to have it wiped out by a roughing the passer
penalty White John Brown Jerseys , and he said afterward that he needs to get better before the start of the regular season.“Obviously, I wish I was a little smarter with
the football tonight,” he said, via the . “There was one play in particular we
got bailed out there, but it’s something that I just can’t do and I know I can’t
do that. . . . I understood that we wanted to run the ball and I wanted to take
a shot, and I can’t go with that mindset. But I’m glad it happened in the
preseason. It was just a little reminder of what I can and can’t do.”Allen also
had a couple of bad passes on which he and his receivers appeared to have a
different understanding of where the ball was going.“Yeah, just some
communication things,” Allen said. “Obviously John Brown Jerseys 2019 , I could have delivered a better ball. I wish I did in those situations. But, again, it’s something to learn from. Get on the same page here.
It takes a couple of those to understand we’re lacking communication somewhere,
so like I said, I’m glad it happened now. We can address it and go on from
there.”Allen got plenty of work in the preseason, more than most starting
quarterbacks. And he knows he needed it.
