I know I haven't been putting these up for most of the season. But anybody heading to Toronto next Sunday?

Nope, but wanted to ask what's the over/under on sacks allowed to the Bills?

Hoping to see our young players develop while also hoping to continue losing. I've dubbed it "Clowning for Clowney."

I'm hearing Clowney has not heart. Not someone we need if true.

That was a good game. The Bills let that one go though, as if they were the ones that had so many fans wanting to tank this season (those 2 fumbles in the end were outrageous!) I can't even lie myself though, I wouldn't have been mad one bit if we lost today. Oh well! I kind of had a feeling this team was "too good" to be in the race for Clowney this offseason anyways, considering the amount of bad teams we're "competing" against like the Jaguars, Buccaneers (I know they beat us), etc.

I missed a good part of the first half -- how did our offensive line look? And our defensive line was horrible, I assume. I'm looking at the stat sheet right now... 0 quarterback hits? ZERO? While Matt Ryan was hit 9 times, 6 of them being sacks, our defensive line generated ZERO QB hits?

There was 1 hit, but the play was nullified by Spoon's roughing the QB penalty. I only recall 2 other times where a Falcons defender was in vicinity of Manuel, on that scramble where Malliciah Goodman whiffed on the sack early, and another wehre Babineaux also got juked in the backfield. I think both happened in the first quarter on the 2 opening drives. After that, Manuel was cool as a cucumber as he saw zero heat.

The OL did a decent job. They gave up sacks, but it didn't matter much because they were able to throw the ball effectively downfield. Ryan threw the ball 15+ yards 11 times, and IIRC it was around 4 or 5 times in the first half, a major change from the past 5 weeks were that number never went above 2.

Sacks don't matter if you can hit the deep ball, which is what I've been saying for over a month.

thats all fine and good as long as your QB remains standing. With the Bills game, I heard cumulatively, Ryan has taken more hits ( not just sacks, but knockdowns and contact hits) then any other QB in the league. Dont know if that is true or not..The fact this guy has made it this far is nothing short of unremarkble.

I disagree. Sacks matter.
