With the Buffalo Bills thrashing the Pittsburgh Steelers yesterday in the Bills’ third preseason game you have to ask the question “are the bills for real?” They added a proven head coach in Rex Ryan who they appointed as their savior. So far that has been a good move for Buffalo due to the fact that since adding Ryan they were also allowed to lure in other promising NFL talent ex. Shady McCoy. With a whole new roster with much more talent this time around, Ryan is in a position that is far superior than he ever had in New York. Tyrod Taylor, E.J Manuel, and Matt Cassel seem like a better option at this point in their careers than Mark Sanchez was as a rookie for Ryan and the Jets. Not to mention all the young talent the Bills are loaded with the season such as Sammy Watkins, Marcell Dareus, and Robert Woods. It is clear that the Bills have made the most noise this off-season and on the field we are starting to see that translate into success. When the talent level at ever position goes up from yout head coach all the way down to your punters. Then typically good things are going to happen and that is exactly what we are seeing in Buffalo. A much more talented group that will offer the city of Buffalo a true pro football contender for the first time since Jim Kelly has been in town.
Look for this team to improve in the AFC East but they still are in a division with the New England Patriots. The team who won the Super Bowl just a year ago. And also with Miami inking Ndamukong Suh there still will be a challenge with the Dolphins as well. Yet don’t be surprised when the Bills upset a few teams. They were able to sneak 9 wins in last year with a less talented cast, we should be able to see 10 this year.
