Can someone explain to me how a Buffalo team that only gets in the playoffs because Baltimore loses can hold Jacksonville with its shit quarterback to 10 points while the Pittsburgh squad that only loses being top team by a controversial call allows them 45 points? Losing one player, except perhaps the quarterback, no matter how talented cannot define a team/defence. I hope the minority partners get their way. Blame Butler but this is all on Tomlin & by inference - Rooney.

The shareholders are more incensed today than yesterday. They are not coaches, they've had their own consultants explain the technical failures. If they ran their businesses with the same mistakes and incompetence they'd be broke. The bloviating by the incompetent one with Dungy says it all, the shithead lost the first NE matchup because of his incompetence and never made it to the second one also because of his incompetence.

Quickly.
Without looking.
Name more than one Buffalo Bills defensive player.

Kyle Williams
Jerry Hughs.
Micah Hyde.....


They did have some nice moments on the season and held some playoff teams down....

They did give Carolina and Atlanta early season when they were both disfunctional and struggling offensively. Beat KC amist their slump.

Played some terrible offensive teams on year.


Then they did give up during course of season;
20 to Cincy
23 to the Pats
27 to TB
34 to Jets
37 to Pats
47 to Saints
54 to SD

They do have Shamako as depth..

When you make the playoffs and Tyrod Taylor is your QB, you must have ONE HELLUVA DEFENSE.

I think the only logical explanation, is how incredibly volatile NFL results can be from week to week. One week a team is getting blown out by a poor team, only to come back and beat a much better team the next week. You see this all the time. The key is to not shit the bed in the playoffs if you’re good enough and lucky enough, with health and other factors, to get there. Unfortunately the Steelers staff could not prepare for the Jaguars this year; fucked by that team twice, and in the one that mattered most. Thought we were better than the Patriots in spite of not having AB almost the entire game, and deserved to win. Bears game was a too familiar early road game Tomlin disaster; but that did go to overtime and there were some horrible calls that went against us. We were close this year, painfully close.

Yes, but when it truly counted, they held the Blake Bortles to 10 points while Steelers allowed Bortles to basically score at will. Plus as shown above, it wasn't like the Buffalo had the Steel Curtain to stop any offence.

Because our defense is actually shit and without Shazier it is complete shit.

I said it in the pre-playoff thread that this defense, as built and minus shaz was never in a million years going to take us to the promised land. We had to score points to win the Lombardi.

Did I think we would have to score more than 45 points? Hell no. But if you watched this defense this year the vulnerability was evident.

Lack of depth and bad drafting, which many of us still were concerned about, reared it’s ugly head, albeit a week early. I still don’t think we would have won in NE.

Thanks, Tomlin! Have a nice offseason.

Oh, and also, it was pretty clear early in the game that JAX was going to have their way with us when you saw rugby scrums behind Fournette turning 4 yard gains into 12 yard first down runs.

When guys like Dupree and Vince Williams are attempting to hug Fournette, rather than tackle him low to bring him down, you know it’s going to be a long day. Actually happened on the opening kickoff.

Poor coaching, no motivation, distracted and many guys probably thought Mitchell’s shit talking was going to take us right to Minny for the Super Bowl, as if that guy did a single thing of value all season.

If you want to keep butler, fine, but all of the ex-Steeler wannabe coaches should currently be working on their resumes. The fact that it’s not happening is mind boggling and a further indictment on how this team is run.

Buffalo also held them to 10 points while playing on the road. Conversely, Jville only scored 10 points while playing at home. In great weather.

Tomlin had two weeks to get this team ready and failed in embarrassing fashion.

He’s everything he’s been accused of around here. 11 seasons of data is more than enough to know exactly what he brings to he table.

Buffalo is a physical defense built to stop power rushing teams like Jacksonville.

We are a fast defense built to be run over by power rushing teams like Jacksonville.

They ran over us. Except for one long bomb, their whole passing game was simplistic crosses and such built off their dominance in the run game

If they can't run over you, Jacksonville has a hard time scoring. This may be simplistic, but is it wrong?

p.s. Butler sucks.

BOOM goes the dynamite.

We are built to stop NE and KC and Cincy. Chicago and Jax are two of the better power rush teams and we lost 3 times to them.

When was the last time we were good against the run? SB vs AZ?

Problem is, I think, you guys are looking at the people between the sidelines instead of the people ON the sidelines.

Our coaching staff is badly outclassed on a near weekly basis. I no longer think we "play down" to teams so much as other staffs "coach up" their team to PIT.

So BUF had a much better plan against a considerably better JAX team. Apparently McDermott>>Marrone>>>>>Tomlin. Curiously, both very young coaches....
