LeSean McCoy leads Bills to easy win over 49ers


As it turns out, it doesn’t matter who quarterbacks the 49ers.

But as it turns out, it might matter who’s calling the plays for the Bills.

The Bills won their fourth in a row (all since they fired offensive coordinator Greg Roman), beating the 49ers 45-16 to improve to 4-2.

They’ve topped 30 points in three of the four games with Anthony Lynn as coordinator, and the outlier was a 16-0 win over the Patriots. Of course, they scored 31 the day before they fired Roman, and it’s very debatable whether it was his fault,

Sunday, it was running back LeSean McCoy carrying the load, with 140 yards and three touchdowns on 19 carries.

Tyrod Taylor threw for two touchdowns before being pulled midway through the fourth quarter for E.J. Manuel, so comfortable was their lead.

Colin Kaepernick wasn’t great in his first start of the season, finishing with 187 yards passing and a touchdown and 66 yards rushing on eight carries.

But it’s also clear he’s not the only problem for the 49ers (1-5), who don’t have enough personnel on defense to withstand their abject lack of offensive firepower, as they lost their fifth straight.

  1. Miami looked like an NFL team today, so anther battle next week, but we all know what the “Game of the Year” will be, and that’s in 2 weeks, at the Ralph. I’d say a flex is in order to get that game out of the 1pm slot.

  2. Wow I’m honestly more worried about playing the Bills than the Steelers their defense looks great and their offense is starting to pick up the slack. Nice to see the AFC East do well today.

  3. You could say the Niner defense is as soft as toilet paper, has more holes than Swiss cheese, etc. But that would understate the lack of playmakers on both sides of the ball.

    Kap for his part played pretty well (better than Gabbert has) but wasn’t helped out by his receivers. Our linebackers, CB, WR, TE and safties are garbage. So if Baalke stays as GM I imagine he’ll draft a few corners with blown knees.

    This team is about 2-3 years drafts from being competitive let alone capable of standing on their own in the NFCW. Harbaugh must laugh every Sunday when he looks at the scores.

  4. Kap reminded everyone today why he was benched last year. He looked absolutely lost out there, tucking and running at the first sign of trouble. And he wasn’t just inaccurate, he was Tebow-esque.

    Paging Christian Ponder, paging Christian Ponder

  5. It’s funny that people who mentioned the obvious non-controversial reasons the 49ers lost were voted down en masse. Kaepernick isn’t the only one with an agenda. Opponents were much happier to face Gabbert, who averaged less than 6 yards per pass attempt, had a 69 rating. Kaepernick wasn’t good, but he wasn’t the reason they lost. Marginally, none of the QBs on the roster are much better than the others. You let a team score 45 points with 1 guy running for 140 yards and 3 TDs, and their QB has a high % and doesn’t turn it over, you are going to lose that game.

  6. The 49ers just plain stink. While Kap had a decent day on the first day back, there simply is not enough talent or (apparently) good enough coaching for this team to be anything more than what they are.

    Fire Baalke Now.

  7. So glad the team with the disrespectful turd as a starting quarterback, got their butts’ whipped !

  8. 9ers score their least amount of points of the season, against the lowest rated defense they’ve faced all season, but suddenly the problem is not the quarterback but their defense.

  9. You know you suck when you get blown out by the Bills.

    Thyroid was amazing, throwing for 179 yards.

  10. the 49ers are absolutely pathetic. it does not matter who plays QB because there is no talent around him. the GM, trent baalke has assembled a roster that is a joke! he MUST go and the sooner, the better.

  11. Funny. When the 49ers were winning and Kaepernick was the quarterback, it was Kaepernick winning. They lose with Kaepernick and it is Everyone’s fault but Kaepernick. Making excuses for Kaepernick is the future of the NFL.

  12. Kap played well? If Torrey Smith hadn’t picked that ball out of the dirt they wouldn’t have had a TD all day. The guy is terrible, and this coming from a fan who cheered for EJ today.

  13. Kap is just as much at fault today as the defense. He pretty much missed his receiver on every throw. Even his throw to a wide open recover barely made it to him

    110 QB rating, 45 pts on the board, 4 straight wins … yeah, he was amazing. You’re finally coming around.

    Now comes a tough stretch for the Bills:

    @ Miami, NE, @Seattle, @ Cincy

    Eager to se how they fair. Great win today

    Disagree completely on Miami, and Cincy is looking human, but man NE and Seattle look rough.

  16. The really sad part about this is that people who have watched the niners over the decades of is that the Yorks know so little about football and care more about being under the cap that they can’t fathom the destruction of the team. Everyone has seen Baalke decimate this team with his lousy draft choices and free agents. But York keeps him last year because he delusionally thinks Baalke helped mccloghlan and harbaughs team win playoff games. How?!? He can’t draft WRs,he can’t draft qbs , he can’t draft tes, his ol picks are average, and he drafts mediocre cbs by the bushel. He use to be able to pick linebackers but he hasn’t done squat after Willis and bowman . We are making crummy ribs look like frank gore out there. The York ever want to win, they have to fire themselves , which we know their fragile egos could not handle. Pitiful!

    One game at a time, not taking Miami or Cincy as given wins. Both games are away and they will be up for us…On to Miami, hope Dareus can finally contribute.

    When the team runs for 300 plus yards, you don’t really need to throw the ball all over the field..Don’t be so mad bro..

    I don’t know how they do it in the CFL but when you are up by over 20 points and averaging 8 yards a carry you don’t throw the ball much.

    Go Argos!

    CFL is the basketball of football, no lead is safe. Many diehards argue it’s more exciting brand of football, but defense is an afterthought.

    Bills are winning the old fashion, true football way, defense and a solid running game…Lombardi style football…Go Bills!
