The triple-option cadets are winning the race 6 to 3. This is all for your late Monday night.

If the Bills did not have at least some serviceable defense, they might be the 2008 Lions.

As for this stat, I mean, at least Army has a QB albeit the triple option is obviously light on passing, whereas the Bills have suffered through Nathan Peterman, Derek Anderson and Josh Allen. I am actually kind of shocked you can get 3 TD passes from that bunch.

It might be wise for all of us to do our stress drinking before the game next year when Army comes to Ann Arbor.  They are frustratingly effective at what they do, and make no mistake: Jeff Monken is an elite coach who has built a legit program at West Point.

I'm thinking that the brain trust that surveyed college football and thought Josh Allen was a viable NFL prospect worthy of a first round pick aren't really good at this.

Never quite understood the Josh Allen hype that the Bills were apparently so infatuated with. I get that he had great measurements at the combine, and he had the "NFL arm," but he was completing 50% of his passes in college for a reason. I get that he was a project, but definitely never worth a first round pick, in my mind. 

Just my opinion, but I'd happily trade size and arm strength for accuracy, being able to successfully progressing through your reads, and making smart decisions with the football. Of course you'd like to have all of the above, but how often does a prospect like that really come along?
