Lol just because Keemun and Heinecke looked good against the 2nd and 3rd team we're already assuming it's going to be a long season? Man oh man

Biggest problem is by far the o-line, we have invested a lot of money. They looked terrible and gave Sam a clean pocket maybe once, its only been one pre-season game but I was hoping for a little more.

It's game 1 of the preseason.

Nothing positive in this thread. Not a good sign for this season. After 40 plus years being a fan I have to admit I'm getting tired. Lucky if we win 4 games this year with this offense.

:lol: are you guys really sitting here saying we're going to struggle after there has been one preseason game where you reveal next to NOTHING as an offense or defense? Yeah definitely "lucky to win 4 games this year" I guess?? Seriously? Nothing against you guys but really? After a preseason game?

I just read through these things this morning. I'd laugh my butt off if it weren't so sad. This is one depressing fanbase.

We might as well go ahead and start talking about who we'll be drafting No. 1 next year because it's obvious we're going 0-16.

I don't think this first preseason game is a reflection of how the season will go but there were hints. I know that it's a very "vanilla" game as far as scheme goes but it's that way for both teams.

The thing that stood out to me was how horrible the blocking still was. I have faith that Bradford with settle down and be better than preseason game one. I'm not worried about the defense. I'm not so sure about the offensive line though. They were just getting beat in their matchups, it really didn't have much to do with anything else.

Not sure why Sparano is moving the OL like they are playing musical chairs game.
They are still trying to find a spot for Clemmings.
I would think by now Sparano would know what position his players are suited for.
Stick them in a spot and let them get reps to get comfortable in that position.
Sirles played LT, LG, Clemmings LG,RG and Kerin RG, LG .
How confusing can that be moving from the right side to the Left.

I wouldn't get too bent out of shape as everyone is going to look vanilla for the 1st preseason game. They are not going to show all their cards right out of the gate. Things will improve....how much I don't know but barring the injury turnstile from last year this year will be better.

Yep, let's show what we're going to do right out of the gate and throw away the whole season after the first PRESEASON game. Never mind any adjustments.

Remmers is awful. I'd prefer it if they would start Hill at LT and move Reiff back to his natural RT spot. If Remmers starts they will be lucky to get 3 step drop passes out without giving him help. The run d was also concerning as others have said.

Wow, the negativity on this board after the FIRST preseason game is ridiculous! R-E-L-A-X it is seriously the first preseason game calm your tits and just be happy football is back on.

People saying we win 4 games is just laughable.

Reiff even said he feels more comfortable at LT so I wouldn't say RT is his "natural position".

I'm not predicting gloom and doom, I was just disappointed that Bradford played ultra conservative. It was very disappointing to see.

But like I said above, first team offenses and defenses aren't going to reveal a ton. It's a very basic playbook that I'm sure they are using. So I honestly take it with a grain of salt.

On a positive note, I got to meet Spielman at the game last night!! As well as Andre Patterson, Adam Zimmer, Ben Leber, Wobby, etc. My buddy that lives in buffalo landed us 2 pregame field passes. Probably one of the coolest experiences of my life. I would upload the picks but I'm not sure how to

My point was, Sam, with the first team, looked bad, and the backups looked better. If Sam doesnt shine it WILL be a long year. Too early to tell now but Zimmer was right in his post game interview.

2 sacks, offensive penalty to kill a drive and a 3rd and 12 and Bradford throws a 5 yd check off.
It was a sh_ t show with the first team. I'm sure things will improve in the preseason, but that wasn't to encouraging and no since sugar coating it.

The backups are also playing against....the backups. I get what you're saying with Bradford but saying the backups looked better carries no weight in the preseason. That's like saying Stacy Coley is our best WR just because how he played last night against.....the backups. I'm taking this game with a grain of salt. As you said, it's way too early to tell. We all know Sam needs to play well. He has for the last year and a half. I'm not overly worried

The only thing worse than the pass blocking is Photobucket. Half the forum has dead avatars! Reiff and Remmers stunk up the joint and we dropped almost 100 million dollars on them. I understand the Bills have a good defense but Bradford had one or two good chances. I'd rather see him dump it off than get buried in a preseason game.

Also, VINTAGE VMB here. Our defense almost shut the starters out and only gave up ten points in a game we won but people are already saying we are a 4 win team. Never change, guys!

Reiff didn't play so unless he dropped a huge crap in the bathroom he didn't stink up anything. And last I checked it was the first preseason game and Buffalo has a pretty darn good 1st string D line.

I have pretty positive tits, but even they have gone cynical since the team's collapse last season.

Seriously though, I have not seen any differences btw this team and last year's.

Wouldn't it be "tits" if we got through pre-season without any major injuries?
