Game Day: Buffalo Nickel/Wide-Right Awards


The Bills came to the 3-1 49ers with a statement from Coach Chan Gailey “If we don’t turn the ball over, we will score points.  When we score points we will win games”.  Basic logic from Chan Gailey here but still true.  It is easy to look at all the negatives with the Bills and how they were out performed in the first half and but the mid 3rd qurter have given up 7 20 + yard plays.  After each game I will look at some of the players and coaches that deserve an award both, positively and negatively.  In the first half I was optimistic, and was leaning towards awarding the Offensive Line a Buffalo Nickel award for staying together and minimalizing the damage.  I was also looking at award McKelvin an award for his kick returns so far in the game, although one was called back on a holding call.  I am going to stay with my first two gut instincts and award both McKelvin and The entire O-Line a Buffalo Nickel award as they are really the only highlights to this point of the game.  The wide-right award is one that could be given to many different people with the way that some decided to show up.  The person that is going to receive the first wide-right award is Dave Wannstedt for decided to stay in a zone coverage defense and basically not make an changes to the defense what-so-ever from the week before.  My second wide-right award is going to the famous and outstanding play of Ryan Fitzpatrick for again, making terrible decisions under center.
