Brian Daboll: Stock unchanged
Matt Eberflus’ stock slightly falling does not result in Brian Daboll’s slock slightly rising as it was not an over-the-top performance from the Buffalo Bills offense. It was a solid game for sure, but the Bills did not look like the world-beating offensive team that they did to finish the regular season.
Part of that is because the Colts dominated the time of possession and another reason for that was Cole Beasley being out. However, the Bills certainly could have done better. They did not do bad, hence why Daboll’s stock remains the same.
There were some good play calls here and there from Daboll but I was not overly impressed with the offensive gameplan in this one. For the most part, the gameplan seemed to be to let Josh Allen put the offense on his back and make plays with his arm.
And that is exactly what he did. How much of that is because of Daboll? Well, that is what the Chargers have to flesh out in the interview process.
That is the one thing I do not like about the Daboll hype, though. Don’t get me wrong, I am a Daboll guy and would love to see him hired. But some fans take it too far and give too much credit to Daboll for Allen’s improvement in the league.
He certainly deserves credit, but Allen deserves the absolute most credit as he has completely changed as a quarterback. He put the work in to get better.
I like Daboll but this game did nothing to make me like him more.
