It gets frustrating going talking about the same non-corrective issues every week, but that seems to be the M.O. of Dave Wannstedt. Starting with the Wide-Right awards, Ryan Fitzpatrick was so close to getting a Buffalo Nickel for his gameplay and not throwing an interception for the entire game. Also, the Offense was doing so good that it wasn’t until late in the game that they needed to punt. Fitzpatrick is the first to get a wide-right award as single handedly he provided the late opportunity for the Titans to score and take the lead as well as not making good decisions on the final drive to get within field goal range throwing sort of the first down marker on the first two plays. Dave Wannstedt might hold the record by the end of the year for wide-right awards if he doesn’t change anything and do it so quickly. He continues to play in a zone 2 deep man and only rush 3 and 4 players at a time. The times when he does rush more and include the blitz the defense seems to be doing better and are able to shut down the offense.
On to a positive note, the Buffalo Nickel awards go to the Offensive line in the first half for playing well and creating the holes for spiller and Jackson to get the running game going. Second, to both Spiller and Jackson; they looked like the good combo that they have been known to be and were able to make people miss and get the necessary yardage to keep plays going. The third Buffalo Nickel goes to Stevie Johnson for catching the ball and making plays. Fitz and Johnson seemed to be on the same page for just about the entire game. The final Buffalo Nickel goes to the every so slipepry Brad Smith and his KR for a TD to keep the Bills ties at the end fo the 1st quarter.
