7-Things For The Bills: Part II.

By Tom Mahoney

4. AFC East- This is it. This game is the big kahuna. The winner of this game will most likely be the winner of the AFC East. Though it won’t be a lock. They will be playing in Foxboro on Week 16, with the winner of this game likely with a good lead in the Division. The good news for Pats Fans is that this is much more of a must win for the Bills. The Pats have a Bye next week, which will give them some time to heal for the stretch run. The Bills will be on the road getting rest for no one. This is do or die for the Bills.

“It's always important. Buffalo's always a challenging place to play because the wind will affect the kicking game more than it will the passing game as it relates to field position, ball handling, field goal range, direction of the kicks, so forth,” Belichick said. “Obviously, it's a big, key factor in the game, depending on what it is. It's part of the challenge of playing there. It'll be the same for both teams. We'll see how everybody handles it, but it'll definitely be a factor. Again, more of a factor in the kicking game than the passing game, although, it could affect the passing game, but it'll affect the kicking game first.”

The Pats had the lead in the win column of one game, but have not had their Bye yet. The Pats have played one more game than the Bills. So the Bills would-da could-da should-da be tied with the Pats if the Bills win next week, the weekend of the Pats’ Bye. So you could say the Pats and Bills are tied right now with four losses each. The next two weeks will be the deciding factor in this grudge match. The good news is that the Bills have to go down to Tampa to play Ba-ba-ba-Brady and Buuucccsss… Which looks like a lock loss for the Bills to me. That’s a big switch in weather for them.

“Usually we talk about it once we know for sure when it is, which, a lot of times, that's when we get to the stadium,” Belichick said about bad weather games. “It's hard to really hang your hat on one of the predictions here. We'll go with the known information understanding, obviously, what it could be. We're not expecting overheating and fans on the sideline.”

This is a must win game for the Bills. The Pats have more of a clear path to winning the AFC East it they don’t win here. However, the statistical probability is that the Pats win. As I wrote yesterday, when a team scores 21 or more points against the Bills? They lose. Mac and the Patriots Offense have scored over 25 points per game in the last eight games. That does not bode well for the Bills. If the Pats offense just matches what they have done over the last 8 games they win.

“Honestly, the decisions each week are pretty much based on that week, what we need to try to do to win that game and then deal with next week next week,” Belichick said. “On a specific injury or a player's physical condition, that could be a different part of the conversation. Just in terms of playing the game and doing what we need to do to win, that's hard enough every week. We put everything we can into trying to win each game. When the game's over, we tee it up and be ready to do it again.”

The trend going for the Bills is that the Pats have not played well in Buffalo, under their current coach. Sean McDermott has had Pats’ number in the past couple games. He brags that he studies Belichick like the gospel, because he’s the best coach ever. Which means he has watched more Tape of the Pats than anyone not on the Pats. This game has really turned into a grudge match for both teams. It will be interesting to see how the cold weather affects Mac. We will learn a lot about the young Pats tonight.

5. It’s Draft Time Again BABY!- What a stat they had yesterday. Alabama-Georgia pounding each other in an SEC slugfest that could be a rematch in the Championship Game. With Michigan looking to break the SEC’s stranglehold on the NCAA Champs. The SEC has win 20 of the last 15. I love the Cincy story of the smallest school in a long time to get to any kind of NCAA Champ Game, but Alabama is going to overwhelm them like a tidal wave. Even tough Cincy somehow picked up a QB who will go in the 1st and three or four defenders who will go in the 1st. They are really the first smaller school to reach the Finals since… Because the big schools have this locked up… So it’s been since… I don’t know? BYU 1984 (which is ironically a dystopian date;).

“I think it’s good that we have a balance in college football in terms of people who can be successful,” Saban said. “I think it’s good for fans that they have hope that their team has an opportunity to get in the college football playoff… The whole atmosphere changed (now that we’re in the playoff). Now everybody just talks about the playoffs and who’s in the playoffs. I’m not apologizing. As competitors, as coaches, we’re all trying to get our team in the playoff, because that’s sort of the standard of college football right now.”

It looks like it is going to be Alabama Vs Cincy, and Michigan Vs Georgia. Though Georgia might get bounced out because they lost the SEC Champ Game. But those four teams are the most logical. The fun game will be the Battle Royal between Michigan and Georgia. Both have a good blend of Prospects on their teams. Especially Defensive Prospects. However, Notre Dame could certainly slip in, for old time sake. Georgia did lose the SEC Champ Game, granted in a brutal battle-royal that was wonderful to watch.

“We certainly think Cincinnati belongs in the playoffs, and they’re a really good team,” Saban said. “In this last game, we seemed to play to the standard that we wanted to play to against a very good team. Now it’s going to be everybody’s choice as to whether we can maintain that and be consistent with that moving forward as we play in the playoffs. It doesn’t get any easier.”

I didn’t think Georgia could beat Alabama in that game. Georgia had a bit of a QB problem with JT Daniels out. I thought Georgia had the better Defense. Alabama’s Defense was not as talented as last season and had the young QB. But Bryce Young really matured as a QB during the season and was brilliant and clutch in the last two games. Auburn beat him up pretty good and he kept coming back. And won the game with smarts, resilience, and clutch late in the game. He’s a little small, but is still remarkably just a Sophomore. He could have two more years at Alabama. And with his size, he should stay in school.

Cincy Vs Alabama:

Cincy Offense:

#9 Desmond Ridder- QB, 6-4, 215. Rs-Jr- The Champ Game is a huge game for him. He is a small school QB trying to prove he can play in the NFL. He has to complete passes and score points against Georgia’s elite Defense. He has proven himself to be a 1st Round Pick. There is no doubt about that. But is he a Top Ten Pick? Can he reach the Top Five.

This game could put him in the Top Five, in a bad QB Draft, with a great showing. I mean, right now? It’s Kenny Pickett and a pile of nuts and bolts. This could the first Draft in a while that doesn’t have a QB go first. Kayvon Thibodeaux is the best player in the Draft. Spencer Rattler has fallen off the map.

#12 Alec Pierce- 6-3, 212, WR, Sr-

2020: Limited to six games on the season due to injury. Totaled 17 receptions for 315 yards and three TDs. Continued his big-play prowess, leading UC with an 18.5 yards per catch average. Had a reception in every game he played in. Finished with six catches of 20 or more yards, including a season-long 45-yard strike from QB Desmond Ridder in the AAC Championship game.

#8 Michael YoungJr- 5-10, 190, WR, Gr- He can make the big catch on 3rd down.

Grad transfer wideout from Notre Dame joined the Bearcats prior to the 2020 season.

NOTRE DAME: Played in 29 career games for the Irish with 17 receptions for 177 yards and a pair of TDs … also returned 12 kicks for 257 yards, averaging 21.4 yards per return with a long of 48 yards against Vanderbilt in 2018 … earned his degree from the college of arts and letters at UND in May 2020.

Alabama Defense:

15. Christian Harris- 6-2, 232, LB, Alabama #8

Taken From: The Most Far-Out Draft Preview Ever!

Harris is a freak athlete ILB. Superb athlete. Flows to the ball with speed and quicks. Good hitter in Coverage. He can arrive a split second after the ball. He was 2nd to Dylan Moses (80) in tackles last season with 79. He also garnered 4.5 Sacks and 7 TFLs. He looks faster on the field to me than Moses. Quicker and a better blitzer as well. Uses his speed to get outside, past blockers, and force the RB inside. Love how he moves on the field.

2020: Earned the starting job at will linebacker to begin the 2020 campaign ... ranked second on the defense with 79 stops, including seven for loss (-31 yards) and 4.5 sacks (-28 yards) ... added six quarterback pressures, two pass breakups and an interception to his totals.

23. *Jordan Battle- 6-1, 210, SS, Alabama, #9

Taken From: The Most Far-Out Draft Preview Ever!

Battle really looks the part. Has the kinetic energy and twitch that you look for. Can play Cover One and in the Box. Brings energy to the Defense. Legit two-year starter. Smart, athletic, understands positioning, tough. Not a lot of guys start as a Freshman for Alabama. He had good, not great, production last season. I’d like to see more stats in coverage. He was more of a Downhill or Box Safety so far.

2020: Moved into the starting spot at safety as a sophomore ... ranked third on the Tide defense with 66 tackles, including three for loss (-7 yards) ... also contributed four pass breakups and a pick-six that he returned 45 yards for the score ... selected as one of the Alabama coaching staff's defensive players of the week for his efforts against Kentucky. Missouri.

33. Josh Jobe- 6-1, 192, CB, Alabama, #28

Taken From: The Most Far-Out Draft Preview Ever!

Great smooth feet. Can make it look easy. Good focused on his assignment. He will get overaggressive before the ball arrives and draw the flag. He’s glue on the Goalline. Can use his eyes, smarts and speed to cover over the top. He will make plays in coverage on 3rd and long situations. Great smarts and eyes in deep coverage.

Physical corner who capped off his sophomore season with an impressive performance in the Citrus Bowl ... carried that momentum into the new season, earning himself the starting corner role opposite of Patrick Surtain II ... earned honorable mention All-America recognition from Pro Football Focus ... registered 55 tackles, including 2.5 for loss (-9 yards) and two sacks (-9 yards) ... also recorded 11 pass breakups to go with two forced fumbles and one quarterback pressure ... named the Thorpe Award's Player of the Week for his play at LSU.

78. Phidarian Mathis- 6-4, DT, Alabama, #48

Taken From: The Most Far-Out Draft Preview Ever!

Big nose tackle type, who has some nice push up the middle. Impressive agility strong outside. He will line up on the ORG as well. Can stack and shed at the point and destroy the RB. Run first defender. Hustles. Play hard. Plays like he hates RBs. When he’s low and leveraged, he’s as powerful moving OLs back as anyone.

2020: One of the leaders on the Tide defense who put together a standout junior campaign … totaled 31 tackles, including five for loss (-10 yards) and 1.5 sacks (-6 yards) … added three quarterback pressures, three pass breakups and one forced fumble … selected as a defensive player of the week by the UA coaching staff following the Mississippi State game.

110. *DJ Dale- 6-3, 300, DT, Alabama, #94

He should slide way up into 2nd Round with a great season. They lost a lot of DLs to the Draft. So Saban is looking for DJ to step up his game and stay healthy all season. Call me crazy, but I think he can play.

2020: Made an immediate impact as a freshman, starting all 10 games prior to a season-ending injury ... returned at full health for his sophomore campaign ... totaled 22 tackles, including one for loss (-2 yards) ... also contributed two pass breakups and a fumble recovery ... selected as one of the defensive players of the week by the Alabama coaches for his efforts against Mississippi State.

#40 Joshua McMillon- LB, 6-3, 240, Gr-

#89 x-LaBryan Ray- 6-5, 292, DT/DE, Alabama-

#31 Will Anderrson-6-4, 243, LB/Edge, Soph,

Cincy Defense:

#1 James Wiggins- 6’, 205, FS, RS SR-

2020: Named to the watch lists for the Jim Thorpe Award (RELEASE) and NagurskiTrophy (RELEASE) ... named to Bruce Feldman's College Football Freaks List for the third-straight year (ARTICLE) .

#7 Coby Bryant- 6-1, 198, CB, SR- Big Corner. Hard worker. Plays off. Aggressive moving forward. Has some Safety in him. Tough and physical.

#5 Darrick Forrest- 6’, 200, SS, SR- 2020: Named to the watch lists for the Bednarik Award (RELEASE), Jim Thorpe Award (RELEASE) and Nagurski Trophy (RELEASE).

#93 Elijah Ponder- 6-3, 275, DE, RS SR-

2019: Started 14 games in the middle of the defensive line and earned First-Team All-American Athletic Conference honors ... finished with 33 tackles, including 7.5 for a loss, 2.5 sacks and tied for the team lead with nine QB hurries ... had one of the best games of his career in the win over UCF with six tackles and 2.0 sacks ... named to the 2019 AAC All-Academic Team.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Alabama Offense:

6. *Evan Neal- 6-7, 370, OT, Alabama, #73

Taken From: The Most Far-Out Draft Preview Ever!

Simply a giant of a man. When he gets his hands on rushers, they’re done. Great powerful hands. Right Tackles become more important each season, as rushers continue to grow on both sides. The question is are they going to move him to Left Tackle. He started every game the last two seasons. Playing mostly OLG in 2019, and every game at ORT in 2020. Will he be at OLT in 2021? Word out of Alabama is he’s at Left Tackle in 2021.

2020: Physical lineman who started at his second position – right tackle – in as many seasons with the Crimson Tide ... earned Freshman All-America recognition a season ago ... has 26 career starts, including 13 at right tackle in 2020 and 13 at left guard in 2019.

24. John Metchie III- 6’, 195, WR, Alabama, #8

Taken From: The Most Far-Out Draft Preview Ever!

Man, I’m hearing some good things about Metchie. I don’t necessarily agree, and I don’t necessarily disagree. He had to step up into a starting role, before he was ready. He grew during the season. Now? Alabama is looking at him as their Number one WR. He almost garnered a 1,000-yards last season as a true Number Two (916 yards and 6 TDs, on 55 Receptions). Excellent speed, work ethic, and attitude. Runs routes to get open, and present an easy target.

2020: Began the year as the Tide's No. 3 wideout and expanded his role following the injury to Jaylen Waddle ... averaged 16.7 yards per catch to rank seventh in the SEC ... totaled 916 yards and six touchdowns on 55 catches ... converted a first down or scored a touchdown on 35 of his receptions as a sophomore.

43. Brian Robinson- 6-1, 228, RB, Alabama, #4

Taken From: The Most Far-Out Draft Preview Ever!

He’s so tough to bring down. He can run through DT arm tackles and LB hits, on the same run. Kinetic, twitchy, and fast. There’s still a lot of tread on his tires. He’s going to go into the NFL fresh and ready. Reads blocks well. Knows the scheme. Nice speed outside. Can turn the Corner, and run through DBs. Can be patient, let blockers work. Then make the quick inside move to break free. Good eyes. Excellent feet in traffic. Good ball security. Great explosive one cut, to make LBs miss.

2020: The Crimson Tide's power back who paired with Najee Harris to give Alabama one of the top running back duos in the country ... recorded 483 yards and six touchdowns on 91 carries with six receptions for 26 yards this season ... also returned three kickoffs for 56 yards ... selected as one of the offensive players of the week by the Alabama coaching staff for his play at Arkansas. Missouri.

139. Emil Ekiyor- 6-3, 324, ORG, Alabama, #55

He’s not pretty, but he’s wide, strong and sticky. Good impact and mirror blocker in pass pro. Good Zone blocker, great feet moving sideways. Good drive blocker, low and powerful moving forward. Not a space player.

2020: Won the starting job at right guard in fall camp to compliment the Crimson Tide's four returning starters ... played in 24 career games ... started all 13 games in 2020 for a Crimson Tide offensive line that blocked for the Power 5's No. 1 scoring offense (48.5 ppg), No. 1 pass efficiency offense (198.9), No. 2 passing offense (358.2 ypg), No. 2 total offense (541.6 ypg) and No. 23 rushing attack (183.5 ypg).

#81 *Cameron Latu- 6-5, 250, TE, Rs-Jr,-

#86 Carl Tucker- 6-2, 248, TE Gr-Tr-

#87 Miller Forristall- 6-5, 244, TE, -

#18 *Slade Bolden- WR-H, Rs-Jr-

Michigan Vs Georgia:

Cincy Offense:

#9 Desmond Ridder- QB, 6-4, 215. Rs-Jr- The Champ Game is a huge game for him. He is a small school QB trying to prove he can play in the NFL. He has to complete passes and score points against Georgia’s elite Defense. He has proven himself to be a 1st Round Pick. There is no doubt about that. But is he a Top Ten Pick? Can he reach the Top Five.

This game could put him in the Top Five, in a bad QB Draft, with a great showing. I mean, right now? It’s Kenny Pickett and a pile of nuts and bolts. This could the first Draft in a while that doesn’t have a QB go first. Kayvon Thibodeaux is the best player in the Draft. Spencer Rattler has fallen off the map.

#12 Alec Pierce- 6-3, 212, WR, Sr-

2020: Limited to six games on the season due to injury. Totaled 17 receptions for 315 yards and three TDs. Continued his big-play prowess, leading UC with an 18.5 yards per catch average. Had a reception in every game he played in. Finished with six catches of 20 or more yards, including a season-long 45-yard strike from QB Desmond Ridder in the AAC Championship game.

#8 Michael YoungJr- 5-10, 190, WR, Gr- He can make the big catch on 3rd down.

Grad transfer wideout from Notre Dame joined the Bearcats prior to the 2020 season.

NOTRE DAME: Played in 29 career games for the Irish with 17 receptions for 177 yards and a pair of TDs … also returned 12 kicks for 257 yards, averaging 21.4 yards per return with a long of 48 yards against Vanderbilt in 2018 … earned his degree from the college of arts and letters at UND in May 2020.

#87 Bruno Labelle- 6-4, 248, TE, RS SR- He can catch the short pass.

2019: Played in all 14 games, earning eight starts at tackle ... made his first career start and recorded a tackle against UCF.

 

Michigan Defense:

#97 Aidan Hutchinson- 6-6, 265, Edge,-

Stand up pass rusher. Relentless running arc. Then will hop inside and is unblockable with his inside move after attacking outside for a quarter. He got his 13th Sack of the season against Nebraska, Which was a Michigan Record. Great athlete. Great instincts. Destroys OL at the mesh point. Loves the power rip. Great lean. Great natural passrusher. Just knows how to attack the blockers hands and stop the hand fight before it starts.

Georgia Offense:

#18. JT Daniels- 6-3, 210, QB, Georgia, 47. - He has an NFL arm, but he can take some off the top on the swing passes to the RB. When he has time in the pocket, and can be calm, cool and collected. Then throw as accurate as you want. He is making every throw this season. And making it look easy. So smooth and in control. He wins with his arm and not his feet, like you have to do in the NFL. He can hit the WR over the top with a perfect throw. The faster the run the Offense, the better he looks. Very smart. Very quick brain. He has shown it mentally in Georgia’s Offense.

#1 George Pickens- 6-3, 200, WR, Georgia, 34.

Recovering from knee surgery and Charter Concerns will keep him out of the 1st. He has a lot to prove in 2022. Great catching it through contact. Elite hands. Big mitts to snag the fastball in the air like magnets. When he focused and happy, he might be the best WR in this Draft. Good inside-out release. Nice arm bar to create separation on the sideline. Man, he is fast down the sideline. Should be uncoverable on Fades. Best when he can go up and grab the high pass. He seems to run past everyone sometimes.

#69 Jamaree Salyer- 6-4, 325, OLT/OLG, Georgia, 61.

Salver played OLT against Auburn and Missouri. He played OLG against Cincy. I think he can play OLT in the NFL. He was moved inside to OLG. He can definitely play OLG in the NFL, and be the emergency OLT. Moves back so fast off the snap that he has to stop and wait for the DE sometimes. Great athlete. Great quicks in kickslide. He could a great one. He was my favorite OLT to watch in 2020. Can play on the right side. He can snap, and play on the Right side.
