As i witness another disappointing Bills season that had so many expectations, I believe the Bills need to make some wholesale changes, and that many of these players on this team will not get us to the ultimate goal if we keep them.
For starters, I heard that the Bills players didn't have the energy for a playoff game! Does that mean the Bills are too laid back, don't play with intensity like I see on the Ravens defense, who should have beat the Bengals without Lamar Jackson! I don't like our defensive line one bit, especially with an undersized Ed Oliver, and they cannot stop the run or generate a pass rush! If the Bills players cannot get up for a game like this, then it is either the coaching or the players themselves. Milano is the exception for this defense, as well as Von Miller, but he is not out there. And the signing of Von Miller, who is nearing his mid-30's, and his better days are behind him, Beane overpaid and now we are stuck with him!
The 4-2-5 scheme cannot generate a pass rush, doesn't blitz enough, and Tre White is not the same player after his injury, I am sorry to say! Poyer will probably demand big money that the Bills cannot afford and it Micah Hyde could be damaged goods. So the strength of our defense, the secondary, faces many questions next year! And for a #1 pick, Elam didn't pan out as expected, when compared to other top cornerbacks drafted in the first round that make contributions right away.
Bills also need to get a #1 running back, like the Bengals have with Joe Mixon, so they can have a rushing attack and take pressure off Josh Allen. Gabe Davis had one good game in his career against the Chiefs, and is not a top #2 receiver, and was a major disappointment.
Meanwhile, the Dolphins and Jets are much improved, with young talent and superior players on both lines. If either of those teams get a good QB, then watch out, the Bills will finish 3rd in their division!
