Hello fellow Rumblers, I was craving something to read, and was sick of looking at the 5 days old stuff, so, here is a new article to sink your teeth into.
I think it is fair to say that the Bills will go as far as their shiny new DL can take them. The Giants and 49ers are ahead of the "game" by having great DL's that can penetrate and take over a LOS. The Bills have (at least on paper) joined them. I actually think the Bills DL could be BETTER due to getting their injured players back 100% healthy. Kyle and Shawne have both had trouble with Achilles injuries and both had them fixed this offseason. Both have stated they feel great. More importantly, the press covering the team has backed up how both have looked great.
I came across an article on Bleecher that took an in depth look at Dareus and spoke how he will be an all pro by the end of the year. It seems pretty good, so, here is the link:
I believe that the Bills will win some games on sheer talent this year. When was the last time we could say that? I think everyone would agree the 2 biggest factors headed into the season are: QB play and health. IF both are good, there is no reason this team can't be this year's Detroit Lions.
One other thing I'd like to point out is that I really hope this team succeeds because the front office, from Nix down to the assistant coaches, seem to know what they are doing. Instead of jumping on a bandwagon of a dying idea (cough DJ's tampa 2 cough), they have been perfecting the spread offense, which seems to be the wave of the future for the league. It will be fascinating to see if the Steelers will contend, since they have decided to go back to the power running attack that made them famous.
I hope the team succeeds because we need continuity. The bills need stability with one direction and one goal. This team in 3 years has the looks of a winner. We have a coach that doesn't lie or sugar coat stuff. We have a relative straight shooter for a GM. The team is compromised of likable hard working guys from the top down to the least important player on the team. I am excited to see where we are not only this year, but, next year and the one after that.
