Buffalo was sixth in rushing last season

Sixth in rushing and the best defense….poor QB

Atlanta was 31st in rushing last year..

Their RBs ran for 1360 yards ... the Bills RBs ran for 1343 yards. 

Context matters. Not really a hard concept to grasp.   People who don't use the stats within context are lazy.    Stats themselves don't tell the whole story.  An example, Singletary, much like Sanders,has a big run or two to make his average look good.  But any Bills fan will tell you, their run game was very ineffective as far as scoring or running out the clock.   They relied on Allen to do everything.

Another think to note even without Hurts we would still be top 13 rush team pretty far drop sure from #1 but you take away Allen from the Bills and they are a bottom 3 rushing team.

Surprised their would be 2 teams worse.  Wonder if you took both Allen and the WR rushing stats away.

Really?    Again, ask Amy Bills fan about their rushing (non Allen ) you'll get the real story.

Still doesn’t explain the dominant defense

Again...   we both agree Buffalo could be the best team in the league.   My point remains... their running game ( without the QB ) is an issue.    

My explanation... they have a good defense and a great QB... very good pass blocking OL, and very good receiving targets.   

Those reasons are why they are a top team in the league.. . If they can hand the ball off to RBs and have any success , they can easily be the best team in the league. You follow

Those dang running QBs justill a team though

Allen isn't a good enough passer for you?   Hurts in your opinion is anywhere close to Allen as a passer?

  A good Running QB helps any team. Problem is when they get hurt. Then the teams suffers. RG1, Newton, Cunningham, Vick, Culpepper and others were great runners! Problem is when they got hurt....

I do follow. I see your point. Believe they are the best anyway. Hard for anybody to have everything in today’s NFL. A point more fans need to realize.

Our Oline had some struggles pass blocking but thrived when we unleashed them run blocking. Well that and just experience…along with Lane getting his head straight. Or some fans believe our opponents just got so easy it made our Oline look good.

I agree in thinking they are the best team...  not disagreeing that it's hard for a team to have everything.     My point was a simple one... has nothing to do with anything else except the fact that Buffalo struggled to run the  ball with their RBs.  Just that one and only point I was making the whole time.

Sometimes people actually say what they mean about just one thing without implying anything else.

" I'm simply implying that at present Col. Markinson is dead"

Correct... that's why the 2017 Eagles had the best roster and dominated from start to finish ....despite Mills and Darby.   Because there are so many aspects to a football roster.... still it's legit to point out the Buffalo running game and the Eagles CBs in 2017.

The listing by CBS of Corners. Many Eags fans aren’t happy with being snubbed. I’m not sure I can really complain though. Those ten guys are really good corners.

I didn't look...but I'm thinking Tampa, Green Bay and LA are the 3 ahead of us... which seems right with all these offseason moves.   I believe he stated that's with Hurts playing a C- level.  Which I agree.   We should take the next step and win a playoff game this year.

OK -  So Let's assume Hurts throws for 3600 yards with 22 TD's and 7 INT's. Is this good enough for you to keep him with a new contract? Because if he accomplishes all of this, he would have won you cash betting the over in Las Vegas for TDs and yards....

   My point is, no one is expecting him to light up the field with his arm. This is with a superb supporting cast.......
