two week nine of the NFL.
Uh, big things come in this week for the bills.
We are going up against the rookie.
Um, Washington Redskins are coming to town.
Bills kicking off week nine, Week nine already kicked out.
We got the 40 Niners and the Cardinals kicked off on Thursday night.
Foreign understate, undefeated on the year, just barely made it past the week Arizona team.
So, uh, good start to the week there, but we get we got the bills to focus on here.
We're sitting at five and two on the year in a great position in the A F C and the entire NFL sitting at one of the best teams, and we got one of the worst teams coming in.
So we have the Washington Redskins coming in there, sitting at one in seven on the year, and their lone win on the season was against the Miami Dolphins.
So, um, this seems very weak.
Uh, it may not seem like that with some of the players that they do have on their roster, which I'll go through it a little bit, but, um, they're pretty bad this year.
Fan should be excited.
The Bills defense should be excited.
Those offense should be excited.
Um, it's gonna be a great bonds back game from last week.
Uh, that's that's really what I'm looking for.
Here is just a all around bounce back game, a game where they can prove that they will. They have their mistakes.
Uh, What's up, guys? Welcome to the stream.
Hope your bills.
Aah! If not, hopefully I can convince you to be to be a Bills fan this week, but we got Redskins 49 ERP start Redskins and bills this week.
Um, but like I said, it's gonna be a big bounce back game.
That's what I'm looking for.
I'm looking for all around.
I'm not looking down.
They I mean, yes, that would be awesome.
Maybe house and have a game where we don't stress about it if we're gonna win the entire time.
But I'm just looking for a game where the offense is going.
The defense is shutting down the rookie quarterback and Dwayne Haskins and the wrong game is going on.
That's all I want to see. I just want to improve.
I don't need the blow him out by 30 points, which would be awesome.
But I just wanna win a nice, clean win.
Uh, all around the team looks great, that's all.
I'm looking forward because last week drops game to the Eagles and it was not a good all around game is probably one of the worst games that we've played this year.
So this is a really important game, Whether it seems like it or not, we're sitting at five into six and to look awesome.
Ah, and this is a game where you need to win Clearly.
I mean, the Redskins are, ah, favor to get a top five pick in the draft.
So you gotta win these games.
Uh, I mean, the Redskins, they've they've put up some good flights this year.
I'm not gonna lie.
I mean, last week they played Minnesota.
They lost 19 to 9.
Not very much of a close game, but still 10 points.
And then they played.
The week before that, they played the 40 Niners, who are undefeated on the year one of the best teams in the NFL.
They only they lost the 40 Niners 9 to so clearly they figured out something about that 40 Niners team where they only allowed them to score nine points.
Yes, the Redskins didn't score any points, but still.
I mean, it's they're not a bad team.
Um, they were one and seven.
Yes, they have a rookie quarterback company, Yes, but they have good players on their team.
And if they can on Lee, allow the 40 Niners and Jimmy Garoppolo for nine points on them, that's that za win in itself.
I would like to think What's going on.
Coach, Welcome to the stream.
Um, but so the Bills have to be careful.
Um, Josh L. A. Needs to play his game.
He needs to be smart with the ball because the Redskins have some players on that defense if you that their defense is their strong point of the team.
Um, I mean, if you if you look at the defensive line, Jonathan Allen, Deron Pain, Matt, I notice and Monta sweat those four guys right there, that's a good defensive line.
Um, I mean, Jonathan Allen and my nights are great coming off the end, and Monta sweat is so He's a rookie.
He's coming to his own He was really good in college, so they have a decent core on defense and then, I mean, you look at the other linebackers they have, They have Ryan Kerrigan.
Uh, and, yes, Josh Norman is not as good as he used to be.
His best years were when he was with Sean McDermott, actually, in Carolina, so he is capable of being good.
He's capable of having that game where he can shut down a team.
Um, so draft Norman.
They signed Landon Collins in the off season for a safety, so those two are pretty dangerous in the back field or on the secondary.
So draft down really needs to be careful with that.
He needs to make sure that he's making this smart throws the easy throws.
Maybe he could have a few one on one deep balls just because hopefully we should be up by a few points by then and he can risk it.
Um, but I just want to see Josh have a smart game.
He's had some good games so far this year, but none of them are really just He took over.
He won the game for us.
Alan is actually leading the NFL in fourth quarter Q B R and completion percentage.
So that's kind of something to look at.
Um, it's interesting that he's proven to be clutch this year.
Um, I mean, hopefully we don't need him to be clutched in the fourth quarter, hopefully weaken, just kind of carry it out throughout the game and be up by 20 points by the fourth quarter.
That would be ideal, but he definitely has to be careful with this defense deal.
The only weak part of that defense, really is there run defense, which is good for us.
Obviously, we need to get that run game going A lot more last week against, um, sorry last week against, Ah, Philadelphia.
They did not look very good on the run game at least.
I mean, they didn't look good all around, But you look here, Devon Singletary had 33 design runs in the old game against the Eagles.
Or had nine got nine carries in that game and Josh down that eight.
So I mean, it's What's up.
Katie. Welcome to the stream.
Thank you for the support.
Um, and so we really need to get them going.
That's been the story line for this whole week leading up to this game.
Ah, what Brian Table, our offense of coordinator, is going to do with that team because he really needs to step it up.
We have such a low scoring offense, and we're like, we're relying heavily on that defense, which you could only do it for so long.
You can only have that are getting tired before they start making mistakes.
I think that's kind of probably part of the problem that we've had so far this year is that defense is out there for so long that the guys are getting worn down.
Um, the offense can't seem to get it together and stay out there for ah ah, long drive.
Where gives the defense arrest and maybe gives them the confidence that they are offenses.
They're good, they can put up points, they can give us that stability, to be able to go out there and play our game.
Uh, so I really like to see that run game getting going a lot more.
Um, I want to see Singletary get at least 15 to 20 carries this game.
That would be ideal, Um, mixed Gore in there a little bit.
I mean, I guess that you'd use yelled in, I don't know.
We haven't seen anything of him pretty much this year, but I mean, Singletary was He had four catches last week against the Eagles, but I mean, 77 times that he's touched the ball and the game is not enough.
That guys, he's dangerous when he has the ball.
We saw that on the touchdown.
Um, we saw Ah, Singletary how he can break tackles, how he can get to the end zone. He made.
He made that awesome play to get to the end zone, and that's what we That's what we need to see from him, obviously.
But we need to get him the ball more because he needs that that practice.
In that experience, If we're giving him the vault seven times during a game, he's not gonna be confident to say, Hey, I can make that move.
I can get past that guy.
He's gonna be He's gonna be just not ready yet.
Obviously, I don't know if he's ready yet to carry it 15 or 20 times, but this is the game where you want to try to do that? Um, I mean, the Redskins are allowing ah, 137.
8 yards per game on defense for running.
So on the Bills, I mean, they've had a decent run game.
Uh, we've had to rely a lot on Frank Gore and the legs of Josh Alan, so I'd rather not do that.
I'd rather give the ball to the young guy and Singletary give the ball that Franco are a few times, maybe run a few Jets sweeps in there.
We always see that's that's successful with this team when we see Isaiah MacKenzie out of the field.
So I'd just like to see a lot more looks in this game.
Um, I'd like to see how Robert Foster looks on the field out there with maybe John Brown on his opposite side.
I love to see those two guys on the outside, but Cole Beasley in the slot, mixed in the tight ends a little more.
This is really a game where you can test that out because your defense should be able to shut down the Redskins.
So let's let's just say, let's just say in an ideal world.
Redskins get zero points.
We completely shut them out.
We we give the offense a chance to just go out there.
I guess you could say that.
The officer, If the Redskins are scoring zero points, you put that offense out there.
You say, Hey, get out there.
Throw some deep balls.
Throws from jet sweeps, give gifts to the tight and hand the ball off a lot.
I want to see different looks.
It seems like we've been relying on the same plays the same.
Alan tries to do too much when he should be relying more on his weapons. Just get his weapons.
If he can get the get the Balto Cole Beasley and open field he's got, he's got some moves that can break some ankles out there.
Um, so get the ball to cope easily.
Get it to Tyler.
Kroft, get the Dawson Knox.
We see what the big tight ends canoe.
Um I mean, they're big bodies.
They're not easy to get.
So you get the ball in the tight ends, they could break a few tackles.
Um, so I just want to see Josh really rely on his his weapons a little more.
Um, I'm a little upset that we didn't go after Josh Gordon to give Josh another weapon.
Um, Jax Corn made it all the way to the Seattle Seahawks at 26 or 27.
I believe on the waiver wire bills were sitting at 24 so obviously we just passed up on him.
We didn't want him either.
We didn't want him or there's rumors going around that he didn't want us.
Um, the rumors that Josh Gordon's agent, uh, put out a list to all the teams that trash born didn't want to play for.
And the rumor is they that Buffalo bills on that team.
I don't know why.
Um, I mean, we he could have played the Patriots one more time to get that revenge game in.
He's got the big arm quarterback in Josh's.
Alan, I don't know.
I mean, he ended up.
He ends up in Seattle with Russell Wilson, who is ah, potential M v P candidate this year.
So I guess you may be in a better situation to win a Super Bowl if it's what he wants.
But I would have loved to see uh, Brandon being rg.
I'm put in a bid and get Josh Allen on this team.
Get him the chance to make place for Josh Ellen and put him on the opposite side of John Brown.
If you have John Brown and Josh Gordon on the field on opposite ends out wide, that's dangerous.
That's puts out the whole defense.
They don't know what to do.
Air covering the, um, the two wide receivers that opens up the run game on the safeties.
Come down and cover the run game and stack the box.
And then that opens up the past game.
So that's what I really want to see.
I want to see us get our weapons more involved to confuse the defense.
Um, I feel like the defense kind of knows what's coming, and that's obviously not what you want. It all.
You want to confuse that defense.
You want to give them looks that they don't know and they're not expecting.
Ah, so this is a game to do it.
Like I said, we need to take advantage of the week's schedule that we have.
Everybody's saying, Yeah, you guys have such a weak schedule.
You're not an actually good team.
You're not beating good teams.
Granted, we haven't beat the Patriots.
We didn't beat the Eagles.
That's there. That's our two losses on the year.
But we beat the Titans, the teat.
The Titans are a good team, and I mean, we just need the win.
I don't care if we're beating the Patriots and the Sea Ox and the Eagles and the Cowboys or whatever. I just want.
I just want to get there. I want to get to the playoffs.
I wanted to make some noise in the playoffs.
That's what I've been saying this whole year.
Just get me to the playoffs.
We can build off of that. We have.
We have a good core right now.
We have the right pieces in place and we're going in the right direction.
So these are the games you gotta win, Um, and then next week we go to Cleveland.
So that's obviously a huge game, Uh, both of the A F C.
And for just when we need to win that game, that's a game that you need to win.
Ah, struggling Brown's team, the only thing that scares me is the Browns are desperate.
They need to win more games.
They're looking real bad.
They all have two wins out a year, so that's not what I'm worried about right now.
I'm just worried about beating these Redskins, and we have a great chance to do that.
Ah, luckily, knock on wood.
We do not have too many injuries to be concerned about right now.
Um, R only player that's out right now is Marissa Alexander linebacker.
So he's out for the game.
And there's only three other names on that list for the dangerous report.
Cornerback Levi Wallace.
He's questionable for the game.
We saw him get hurt last week towards the end.
Not sure if you got in to play a little more or not, but hopefully he's good to go.
Kirk Holman, backup safety.
We saw Cody forward go out last game.
Well, I believe ankle or quad something in his leg, so he's questionable for Sunday's game.
But if we have time exactly back for that game and he's healthy and ready to go, I'm not worried.
That's also a revenge game for Italian Seki.
We signed him from Washington during the off season, so I think he's probably ready to go prove it to him, you know? But anyway, I mean, I really like in second at right guard instead of forward.
Uh, Cody Ford is the rookie.
He's he has really shown it and proved too much to me.
I've seen a lot more mistakes than I have good things from him.
So maybe some extra watching and learning from the sidelines might be good for him.
But, uh, the rescue, They got some.
They've got some names on good, some big names on the injury report that air out tight on Vernon Davis.
I mean, that has been in the league forever, but he's out for the Sunday's game.
Chris Thompson, the running back he's out to, he's That's big for the Bills.
Um, because if we want to beat this Redskins team, we need to shut down that that run, dear that, um, that Redskins run offense, because they're not gonna be lighting it up, knock on wood.
They're not gonna be letting it up with joint Haskins.
This guy has looked lost in the games that he's playing.
Um This is his first NFL start.
Um knew he was there 1st 1st round draft pick last year.
But this was there.
This is his first NFL star.
He's played in two games.
Um, just coming in.
He's playing two games in the two games that he's played.
He's completed 12 passes on 22 attempts for 140 yards, zero touchdowns and four interceptions.
So this Bill's defense should be excited to play this guy.
I expect them to welcome to the league with a few sacks, a few interceptions.
Um, so I I'm excited to watch those Bills defense Bonds back and play against a rookie quarterback like this.
Um, we haven't faced a rookie quarterback yet this year, so that's always fun.
Ah, and especially since his first start.
But, uh, we just need to shut down that run.
That run offense for the Redskins.
They have Adrian Peterson.
He's an old man to, uh, he's kind of like Frank or they're both Hall of Famers, but they're both old men, but they could still get it done.
So you gotta watch from Peterson.
I mean, he's he's gonna he's gonna break off two big runs, but he doesn't have that breakaway speed really anymore on.
Then they're back up his Wendell Smallwood.
I believe he's on the Eagles.
Last year he played, He's he's contributed a little bit. He's not.
I'm not scared of him.
Bills defense shouldn't be scared of him, So if you can shut down that run game, you don't really have too much to worry about in the past game.
Rookie terror McLaurin Keep out.
Keep an eye out for him, but trade White should be able to shut him down, too.
So if this Bills defense can get the pressure on Haskins, yeah, collapse that pocket and make Haskins make moves on his own and try to make a play happened. Scramble.
That's when you're gonna win. Get that.
That's that's when you're gonna make him make mistakes, make turnovers.
And that's how you win games turnovers.
When the games we've seen that we need to get some more turnovers going to.
So far, we haven't really gotten a whole lot.
Um so that would be huge.
Is that the Redskins offense of wine is not that, um, yes, they don't have trend, Williams, but they do have Donald Penn, Erik Flowers are Brennan, Truth and Morgan Moses.
I mean, it's not good, but it's not bad.
So that Bills defense beat defensive line.
If they can get to the point.
Haskins, it's game over.
Hopefully, the bills come out six and two.
Um, but thank you for straw checking in on my stream.
I will be screaming tomorrow, So check out my spirit.
Tomorrow I will be recap in this this Redskins Bills game and ah, Until then, I'll see you tomorrow.
Thanks very much and go bills.
