What’s to like about the Bills, and where does the team need to improve following the bye?

The Buffalo Bills (3-7) emerged from their bye week near the bottom of the standings in the AFC, and while the playoffs are still a theoretical possibility, we at Billieve: a Buffalo Bills Fan Podcast thought this was the perfect time to offer up our thoughts on the state of the Buffalo Bills.

Podcast host John Boccacino is joined by co-host Anthony Marino to offer their thoughts on where the Bills need improvement and where the team appears strong heading into the stretch run of the 2018 season.

Give our podcast a listen to learn more about the Bills’ greatest strengths and weaknesses, who should be in the teams plans for 2019 and beyond, and who might be playing their final snaps in Western New York.

There certainly are reasons for optimism — the strength and depth of the defensive line led by Jerry Hughes, Kyle Williams, Shaq Lawson, Star Lotulelei, Harrison Phillips, Trent Murphy and Jordan Phillips; the top-flight linebackers led by promising rookie Tremaine Edmunds and emerging star Matt Milano; the secondary led by lockdown cornerback Tre’Davious White and stars Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer; and the emergence of second-year wide receiver Zay Jones.

However, just as concerning, there are major needs on offense, including potentially replacing the entire right side of the offensive line; a lack of offensive playmakers outside of Jones and Pro Bowl running back LeSean McCoy; overall productivity from the tight ends (Charles Clay has been a massive disappointment while Jason Croom seems talented but has yet to put it all together on the field).

The biggest key to Buffalo’s future success? The continuing development of rookie QB Josh Allen.
