Week 11 GDT: Squish the Fitz

Recommended Posts

Robert Foster was strictly in this game for Special Teams, at times he was on the sideline basically kicking rocks. He was either squating down or looking at his feet. He had no interest on being there it is going to be a problem if he is placed the ERFA again. Duke needs to either come in to his own on special teams or they need to start figuring out another player to be inactive moving forward because the big targets are only knox and kroft which Knox has made some great plays but also has dropped a couple. Having another tall guy in there could be beneficial.

Finally I got my wish and they ran singletary 15 times and he averaged 5 ypc again so he is consistently moving the ball, they just need to continue to do that. I couldnt tell but it also seemed like Lee Smith was on the sidelines the entire game which was something I was happy to see as well. 

Offensively there are some issues that still need to be resolved, Allen throwing at Gores ankles on a swing pass behind the line of scrimmage is unacceptable he did that twice and stalled the drive. Other thing is the offense at times seemed vanilla and just nothing going on in the backfield for teams to bite. The one play which was the mckenzie sweep worked out well but I thought for sure they would do it again since it worked so well but it didnt. Week 10 and I think the bills only have pulled a screen once I wish they did this more often and maybe a wr screen to mckenzie to create some open field for him. Im not trying to bash on Daboll he did a fine job yesterday but when you got to face opposing defenses that are better then the dolphins you need to bring out some more creative plays.

Defense stepped up big time, the pressure was consistent and worked the dolphins oline. Luiget has been a great addition and I would like to see him take more snaps on and less from star. Another person who looked strong was Kevin Johnson he seemed more comfortable then Levi Wallace. Levi gives guys to much cushion and I am not sure if McD wants him to play off or if he is not being aggressive. Kevin was all over Hurns and Gesicki at times compared to Levi. Pass rushing is still a concern I really do not like Trent Murphy and him playing is a waste of time as he hasnt shown his worth out there. I think its safe to move on from him this off season

Going off the numbers that I believe Sal Capaccio posted, Robert Foster played 0 offensive snaps, Lee Smith played the least amount he has all year and Shaq Lawson & Kevin Johnson have begun unseating Trent Murphy and Levi Wallace. 

Hopefully those trends continue although I agree that Foster being strictly for special teams is an annoyance. Do we really need two WR's active that are just special teams guys? I like McKeznie as a gadget player but the fact that he is now our second outside guy is quite worrisome. 

Like you mentioned, Knox and Kroft are our only big physical threats. Duke adds such a presence in the redzone and has shown the ability to separate.  I think he can help take the O to another level.

Dawson Knox is going to be a building block. He blocks well is athletic and can break tackles. He is going to need to work on his concentration but he is going to blossom in the next two years.

I think he's gonna be a steady guy long term. Definitely looking like a nice pick

Knox has been taking more reps from Lee Smith and needs to do that more moving forward
