    Week 3, Buffalo: What Went Right, Wrong, and Sideways

    Have at it.

    Still not enough creativity on offensive for a coach that is supposed to be a offensive genius. It got a little better in the second half but still too many just basic plays. Five step drop and hope Andy can get it out before he gets hit. Other teams are running reverses, miss directions, handing the ball off to a tightend, QB runs, and screens. Very little of that from us. Why sign Gio to a big contract and not get creative with him in the offense. He was barley out there today. Where is some creative stuff with Erickson and the miss matches with Effort. Yes, this offense is going to be limited with a terrible line but we need to see more creativity and work around the poor line play.

    Still need a pass rusher that shows up late in games.

    Andre Smith was terrible. Badly need Glen back.

    Nice game from Tate. Hopefully he can build off of it.

    Good game from Phillips. His kick return should have counted and got a huge int that turned the game around.

    How are we having so many of the other team's receivers running wide open? Bates has been fooled waaaaaaay too many times already this year.

    It really does suck that A.Smith is the best option at LT.

    The run blocking has NEVER been this bad.

    I was in a sportsbar, why did they say that last INT wasn't a safety? He caught the ball no one touched him from the Bengals and he ran back into the end zone.

    They claimed he gave himself up.

    So if a WR caught a ball and fell to the ground, no one touched him he could get up, run to the back endzone and the play would be over? That's ****ty. No situational awareness.

    Yeah, it’s kind of a lame call. I sort of get why they called it but I guarantee had he gotten up and returned it for a touchdown they would have not said he gave himself up.

    Right
    - Agree Tate was solid. The penalty on the KR was bullsh
    - Mixon in 2H
    - Phillips
    - DL pressure but bad wa a inability to tackle Allen too often

    Wrong
    - Brown made some plays, but 3 penalties... WTF
    - Andre is terrible, and so is Dre... Roll Tide
    - Safety play has been bad this year
    - Offense in first half... awful
    - Andy - two INTs, too many batted passes. Tired of the “nothing you can do” excuse. Why is he one of, if not the worst?
    - Coaching... two 12 men penalties. And penalties in general. The 1 to 2 XP was huge... they could have been down 3 and driving for a FG vs a TD

    Edit - a few other things...

    1. Ross needs to catch and hold onto the ball. He may never be as sure handed as some but he had a few gimmes and he needs to be better

    2. Both Billings and Tupou had some very positive moments. The D needs more guys filling past the LOS... like LB and safety but I thought they had a number of stuffs and short gains allowed

    3. Steelers lost, yeah. Didn’t see a lot of the game but it looked like Hayward got dinged at the end. If he’s out next Monday that will help the run game.

    It's always something. No matter what, there's always something just wrong. Glenn's eternal concussion out of nowhere. The hilarity of our 1st round picks always being hurt. Officiating weirdness. Blown coverages. Andy throwing the ball somehow out of Tate's radius. Rules only applying to us and not other teams (Knox committed at least two penalties on his big catch including leading with the crown of his helmet and...nothing). Throws just missed. Blocks almost made. You would think at some point they would get tired of being that team. And yet, game after game, year after year, regime and scheme change after same, nothing changes.

    Taylor said the Bengals made the move of replacing Damion Willis with Tate and putting Tate at flanker and moving John Ross to X receiver during the week. Ross had a rough one. The NFL receiving yardage leader had his NFL-leading fifth drop and had a fumble before finishing with two catches for 22 yards.

    for those who know better than me, how much of a change for Ross is that?
