If You Think the Bills Lost Exclusively Because of Tyrod Taylor You are a Fucking Brain Dead Moron

Yes, Tyrod Taylor and the Bills offense had a pretty abysmal afternoon against the Jaguars. Calais Campbell was all over the god damn field along with the entire Jaguars secondary. But let me get to that in a second because I first need to address the narrative that Tyrod Taylor has held the Bills back in general this season.

 

In the 16 games the Bills played this year, Tyrod had a quarterback rating above 90 in 10 of those games, per NFL.com. He also broke a QB rating of 100 in half of those games.

 

Tyrod Taylor also topped 3,000 total yards (2,799 passing with almost 500 rushing yards) for 14 passing touchdowns and 4 additional rushing touchdowns. He accounted for 67% of the Bills total offense as well as 58% of the Bills’ touchdowns, despite many fans concluding that LeSean McCoy singlehandedly drags the Bills offense into the end zone each week.

 

 

Per The Football Database, Taylor was tied with Alex Smith for lowest interception percentage amongst qualified QBs. Unsurprisingly, Deshone Kizer lead in that category with 4.6%.(full list)

 

The only other time anyone besides Tyrod Taylor ran the Bills’ offense this year, they threw 5 interceptions before the first half was over and were benched. The other time it happened they tried to throw a hitch route with a one on one matchup against one of the best cornerbacks in the league, and shockingly threw the game-losing/season-ending interception. The Bills would not have made it into the playoffs without Tyrod Taylor. Fuckin Nate Peterman.

Keep in mind, the Bills still lack a true #1 receiver. There are zero receivers on the Bills roster who can run crisp routes, get separation consistently, and who also don’t have some of the stoniest hands this side of the Mississippi. This brings us back to Tyrod Taylor and the Bill’s performance this weekend against the Jags.

 

Tyrod Taylor did miss open receivers on a few occasions, and anyone watching would not say he had a great game by any stretch of the imagination. He completed less than half his passes for l34 yards, no TDs, and a pick. He was knocked out of the game late in the 4th when he literally got knocked out courtesy of a Dante Fowler choke slam:

 

First, hats off to the Jaguars because they probably have the scariest defense in the NFL. Their entire defense flies around the ball, and I have not seen another defense this year attack ball carriers and passing lanes like the Jags. Their defensive line was able to get pressure on Taylor seemingly every play.

 

Jags fans can rest assured that opposing quarterbacks and offensive coordinators will be up late with their O-line coaches trying to revamp and create protection schemes designed to mitigate the constant pressure the Jaguars exert on the pocket.

 

However, with all that in mind which do you think hurt the Bills more: Tyrod Taylor’s occasional misfires, or the astounding number of dropped passes, lack of separation by receivers, and horrendous pass blocking?

 

 

Let me give you a hint. Bills running back LeSean McCoy led the team with 6 grabs for 44 yards. Six year man Deonte Thompson was second in receiving yards with 23 on 2 catches. Thompson also dropped a pass, and had this play where he demonstrated a total lack of awareness by coming back a yard short of a first down on a key comeback route on third down:

 




The Bills punted on the next play. Thompson only had 27 catches this entire season and had 11 the season prior. The Bills’ third-leading receiver was Nick O’Leary who had 22 yards on 2 catches and an embarrassing drop. Nick O’Leary is a white second-string tight end who doesn’t wear gloves. He had 22 catches all year and had 9 in 2016.

What about Kelvin Benjamin, the Bills #1 receiver supposedly? He had one catch for nine yards and could not get open on anybody the entire day. He also had a horrendous pass interference penalty where he clearly used his arm to extend and shove the Jaguars defender away on a fade pass. The play happened at the one yard line so it ended up costing the Bills quite a bit as they weren’t able to score a touchdown all game, and they ended up losing by a touchdown.

 

On the final play of the game, where Nate fucking Peterman somehow managed to add to his interception total, Kelvin Benjamin was nowhere to be found. He was busy getting jammed on the opposite side of the field. The Bills may as well have lined up with 10 guys.

 

 

Basically, if you are someone who actually believes that Tyrod Taylor is a shitty quarterback who needs to be released by the Bills, then you have the intelligence of a fucking brick. You probably would have made that decision to start Nate Peterman over Tyrod for the game Peterman threw 5 picks in. Dumbass.

  1. Please, do yourself a favor and delete this website from the internet. People years from are going to be able to do an internet search and cite this article for the reason why there shouldn’t be net-neutrality.

    >Tyrod had a quarterback rating above 90 in 10 of those games, per NFL.com. He also broke a QB rating of 100 in half of those games

    Right off the bat you’ve demonstrated precisely how retarded you are. Instead of bringing any sort of football analysis or some insight into the mix, you hit us with some box-score analysis with the most flawed and misleading stat, Qb rating.

    >Tyrod Taylor also topped 3,000 total yards (2,799 passing with almost 500 rushing yards) for 14 passing touchdowns and 4 additional rushing touchdowns.

    I’ll cede this one to you. 3,000 is quite an accomplishment, especially if the year is 1970. Unfortunately for Tyrod, it’s not special in 2017, where even Jacoby fucking Brissett throws for 3k.

    A better metric to use, is yards per attempt and yards game, which you conveniently neglected to highlight because TT actually doesn’t rank high at all in either category.

    >Per The Football Database, Taylor was tied with Alex Smith for lowest interception percentage amongst qualified QBs.

    He definitely takes care of the football to the point where it is more important to complete a dump off on 3rd and 20 to the Rb than attempt to throw it to the WR who has 2 yards of separation on his man because TT has no confidence in his own ability to complete that but also because he is incapable of going through his reads.

    >The Bills would not have made it into the playoffs without Tyrod Taylor.

    Right, who else are we going to find that can throw for less than 60 yards against both the Patriots and the Saints haha. Who else are we going to find that can muster a td drive against the Panthers or Jags?

    What are we going to do! We better thank our lucky stars for having such a mediocre Qb who was able to leverage our good run game and opportunistic defence for a playoff birth!

    Frankly, you’re an idiot.

    1. If only there was a stat that could be used to take every game factor into account and integrate them all into a single player grade. Then it’d be easy to compare quarterbacks.
