Something about the academies, for sure. Was his dad with Navy?

His father was an assistant at Navy and Belichek has always been considered a savant when it comes to the history of the NFL and football in general.

He loved having Flutue drop kick an extra point and I’m sure the triple option intrigues him.

I’m thinking about Sunday’s game way, way more than I have thought about any other Bills game in a long time — from an anticipation standpoint. It’s weird.

And it was instructive to me to talk with my youngest about the game. He was like, “the Bills should win walking away - the Patriots are trash - it looks like Cam’s back to being bad, they have no one at receiver,  and their defense isn’t very good either - they’re slow.”

He just doesn’t have - nor is he buying- the full force and effect of the Belichick bogeyman.  
 

And I want to believe. I want to Billieve.

I want to as well. On paper we're the better team but two things worry me . The effect of the weather on us offensively and  Belichik out coaching us. Like it or not he's a hall of fame coach and he can game plan better than any coach in the league.

I’ll say it.  Beating the Pats now isn’t the same as beating them even last season.  Given Brady gone and what that team is becoming, it just doesn’t have the same sense of fulfillment.

That’s fair.

There’s something very specific going on right now. The Bills are regarded as on the rise; the Patriots are similarly descending. 
 

But. ... Is it true?

I pray so!

You can’t be the king until you beat the king.

Knox is out with Covid.  Kroft is playing TE today. 

Anyone want to revise their Bills season record take?  Feeling pretty good about mine still.

One bad game?  I’ve got 20 years of mental abuse by this team. It’s going to take more than a four game win streak to make me believe.

At least we can get back to Josh Allen sucks and the Bills aren’t good narrative. Don’t think this team was ready to be good or is for that matter. They will be .500 team before it’s all said and done. I might be optimistic with that record. 


Still feeling good about my predictions.

I didn't see any of it, but fumble in the red zone down 3 with 30 seconds left *does* seem like a familiar story.

After Davis dropped a pass in the end zone that hit him right in the hands when he had nobody right on him, which is why it was only 3.  If Newton holds on to that ball, the Patriots are winning it in regulation, 28-24, no doubt.

That was wayyyy too close for comfort. Cam should know better there, I get it was a good play on D, but you basically have OT almost all but in the bag with a realistic chance of the lead. No complaints here, but he literally and figuratively, dropped the ball.

Miami is the best team in this division 

And we beat them.

This is meaningless tripe.

Yep. Here’s a what if. If that turnover happened earlier where we can turn it into points, it’s a ten point game and we are all fellating ourselves.

I choose to enjoy this win. Don’t care what it means long term. We won today.

 

Oh, and ***** the Patriots!

Without context, yes.  With 1.5 billion people saying the Bills should roll the Patriots, it kinda hits home.  Glad they won.  That’s where it ends.  

I wasn't one of them. I texted my uncle "Can't wait to lose by 20 when we should win by 20" yesterday. Glad I was wrong.

Yeah, but in that hypothetical world, I would bet it.  3rd and 3 on the Bills' 12 with 33 seconds, having walked over the Bills' defense for three straight drives (184 yards, 2 touchdowns and in the red zone on the third) ...

Zimmer made a great play, which likely saved the game.  For the team that we want the Bills to be, that was a bad game and a lucky outcome.  It was basically a coin flip game, which isn't good enough.

Glad they won, but they've got work to do.

I don’t find any of Josh Allen’s wittiness after this game to be funny.  At all. You played like ***** all. Be humble, move on. 

I just watched the JA post game interview. Not sure what you’re referring to - there was no wittiness or cockiness. Pretty bland responses. 
 

Nothing like the jack@ss 4 word responses Belicheat was giving in his.
