Bills Hopes Ride on Allen and McDermott
The Buffalo Bills in two short years have overhauled their roster ushering in a hopeful franchise quarterback in Josh Allen, a new head coach Sean McDermott, and a new general manager in Brandon Beane.
Bills Current State
The Bills now are looking to execute a winner with a new nucleus of players headlined by a potential star player at every position.
The players are second-year quarterback Allen, third-year cornerback Tre’Davious White, second-year linebacker Tremaine Edmunds, rookie defensive lineman Ed Oliver, second-year wideout Robert Foster, and rookie offensive tackle Cody Ford. The Bills are hoping all six players become all-pro and lead the Bills back to glory.
The team also executed their cap space well in the offseason only over spending for center Mitch Morse. The Bills signed wide receivers John Brown, Cole Beasley, and Andre Roberts.
The team also signed offensive linemen Joe Feliciano, Spencer Long, and Ty Nsekhe to provide depth and compete for spots in the starting five.
Beane’s plan was simple, fix one of the worst offenses in the league and give Allen a puncher’s chance to succeed in 2019.
The sensible and no-nonsense coaching of McDermott has worked. McDermott has provided wins and a playoff appearance in his first two years while the team was rebuilding. The Bills will sport their best roster by far under his regime in 2019, and the expectations included.
This offseason and Allen’s development is crucial to the Bills hopes of becoming a contender. In the salary cap era of the NFL rarely can you field a team without holes. Buffalo is no exception, but exceptional quarterback play has proven in the last two decades to overcome team deficiencies.
The Bills are predicted to win six and a half games this upcoming season. I believe the Bills make it to at least seven wins with a favorable schedule. The Bills schedule in the first three weeks provides the opportunity to gain confidence. The team will push for playoffs if they can achieve at least a 500 record in the division.
