I say the guy whose forehead wrinkles without his eyebrows rising. Tells you who is disagreeing with himself inside pretty reliably. This time it's Ryan Fitzpatrick during the post-game press conference talking about the second-half game-plan of not turning the ball over so the defense could win the game. Taken with the frame by frame stills, that man is not loving life right now. He is disagreeing with some of his orders, he doesn't like the play-calling, and Buddy is bugging him. Looking at the post-game locker room speechifying, Gailey is in danger of losing the team. Not there yet, and won't happen until they are eliminated from the playoffs, if that does indeed come to pass. I also found it interesting that Fiotz said that Miami brings difficult blitzes on third down, and that it's a good scheme. He has never said that about his own team's scheming. Of cours,e he plays against it every week in practice, and probably knows what works against it. Which he then sees most every Sunday. Enough of that for now.
What causes Buffalo's defense to play so well? Rookie QBs and OTs. That's what. This game should not be taken as a sign that the defense is figuring things out. It is a sign that Kyle Williams is still awesome, and that Jonathan Martin ain't really got it going on. He was lousy, and the primary reason Buffalo ever got outside pressure. Interesting side note, when you see the game in bits on nfl.com, there are three idiots talking while you read the play by play, and one of them said that last spring a bunch of NFL o-line coaches went to Stanford and put Martin and DeCastro through a "brutal" workout. DeCastro gutted it out, and Martin tapped out. I want to line up against that guy every week, and it apparently is the thing that dropped him out of the first round.
Wannstedt is going to see this game like the Browns game and believe he is doing the right things. The reality is that they beat a lousy team, not too handily.
Buffalo misses David Nelson a lot.
Good punt there in the fourth, Powell. I still hate you.
