I legitimately feel bad for Cam

I came here just to post this after they zoomed in on him and he said "f**k me". Dude did all he could to win us the game and that was a tremendous punch. That dude put his whole body behind it.  Cam was not holding the ball loose...

 

Anyways, I feel a loss is better for the pats.

Agree here, Cam did everything right, just a better play by the defender

This game told the tale of the two teams in 2020. One is ascending, one is failing. One is getting the breaks and doing the little things well enough not to lose, the other one is crippled with poor execution at the worst time and creating it's own bad luck.

As they say, losing is contagious.

Really They the most over hyped team in the NFL. Allen above average at best and will never sniff a SB. Bills are stuck they don't have the luxury picking in the top 10 like they did for the last  20 years

Ya this year after 20 great ones. They need a QB and there back in business.  2021 they have  high pick and a ton of $$$$$ in caps space.

Welp. At least now we can start the rebuild in earnest. 

A few things really stood out that I think should be instructive for the team going forward.

1. As much as getting talent on the offensive side of the ball is a priority, getting bigger up front should supersede it. This team is pathetically small and weak in the front-7, and that's something you can only get away with if you're regularly playing from ahead, which they're not. 

2. Ja'Whaun Bentley is probably the worst defensive player in the league right now. The dude simply cannot tackle and he shouldn't be out there except on obvious passing downs - and even then he should be used sparingly. 

3. Jakobi Meyers should be a big part of the passing offense going forward. I frankly don't know why he wasn't on the field more often in the first 6 games. He's shown quite a bit more than Harry as a pro. I know Harry is the bigger investment, and you want to get the most out of him, but working Meyers into the game plan would've been a big help at least against Denver.

4. Josh Uche should play as much as possible for the remainder of the season. He looked very good with his pursuit and play recognition in his opportunities today. 

5. JC Jackson makes Gilmore expendable. I was a bit apprehensive about how he'd hold up with Diggs as his main assignment but he acquitted himself well. 

6. Ryan Izzo is not the answer to anything at TE. He was supposed to be a blocking specialist, but the 9-yard sack he gave up in the 2nd quarter, where he didn't have the presence of mind to hold when beaten makes it clear he's not even especially good at that.

7. I maintain my position that Cam should be evaluated over a full season. Ending the game on a fumble is brutal, but I definitely have more confidence in him as a passer after this game than I did a week ago. If he shows that he can at least be a good stopgap while the next guy is developed, he should be brought back in that capacity. 

8. Damien Harris is for real. I haven't been this impressed with a Pats RB since Stevan Ridley. Let's hope he doesn't develop a fumbling problem or get hurt.

I am OK with Cam being the QB going forward but I also don't expect to win many games either. I know people want to see what Stidham has to offer but with this offense I don't think he would get a fair showing either way. The roster is in shambles, there are so many holes that one draft alone wont fix it.

As if they capitalized off this at all anyways lmao.

 

Anyway, good game guys. Hopefully y’all came out healthy.

They'll have in the vicinity of $65 million in cap space going into next season. Plenty of money to spend on fixing holes. They could bring in guys like Hilton, Watkins, Henry, Perryman, etc. to fix glaring holes and still be set up to re-up guys like Guy, Wise, Calhoun, Andrews and Simon.
