I still have the original broadcast on my Comcast DVR box. Not gonna delete it.
I taped it at 3 am, and I’ve watched most of the 1st half. Some of the things I’ve seen
- penalties put us in too many 3rd & longs. Had something to do with us having to settle for 3 FG’s
- Murray having to run for his life as the Bills blitzed up the gut consistently.
-Reddick could go sideline to sideline, but couldn’t put pressure on Allen. Bill’s RT engulfed him at the LOS.
-Peterson dropped 2 picks that 5 years ago, he would not have.
-Our DL put very little pressure on Allen. The only time we created pressure was by blitzing Murphy.
-Drake ran fairly well, but had some mental breakdowns that contributed to us having to settle for fg’s.
On the "plus" side, our defense generally kept them bottled up (closing fast enough and consistent enough in pursuit). Also liked Drake's yards after contact (but didn't like his fumble).
But the team was too prone to committing miscues (take-aways, penalties. And most galling were the substitution flags and ball security mishaps.
If the team can tighten up its fundamentals and keep its energy level high, there's no team it can't compete with.
The Cards season peaked in this game. All downhill from there.
Yeah, the way the schedule was set up really hurt. We only had 4 days before a trip to Seattle to enjoy the good vibes of this game, and then Kyler gets dinged early in that game.
Had a blast at that game (one of two we went to last season). Big play happened in the end zone literally just to our left. Bills fans weren't even too upset. Just dumbfounded.
We completely outplayed the Bills, and still did our best to try to lose that game. We miraculously won, but it really shouldn’t have come down to that. Too many penalties, too many mental mistakes, and poor play calls at critical times almost sunk us. We weren’t so lucky as the season progressed & the same crap just continued to plague us.
