On the latest episode of Billieve: A Buffalo Bills Fan Podcast, host John Boccacino removes his customary rose-colored glasses to offer his worst-case scenarios for the Buffalo Bills in the upcoming season.

On this week’s episode, Boccacino views the Bills’ 2019 season through a pessimistic lens, exploring all the ways Buffalo’s season could get derailed: among the ways the season could go off the tracks:

  • Josh Allen failing to build upon the momentum from the final six games of the regular season (or Allen suffering an injury from running too much)
  • The wide receivers not taking a step forward, with surprise breakout Robert Foster regressing to his undrafted rookie status, Zay Jones failing to correct his issue with drops, and Cole Beasley failing to gain adequate separation as a slot receiver
  • Father time catching up with veteran running backs LeSean McCoy and Frank Gore
  • The offensive line failing to gel as a unit with seven new faces vying for time on the line
  • The lack of a pass rush, particularly if an injury befalls Jerry Hughes, the team’s best and most consistent pass rusher
  • Inconsistent play from the rest of the cornerbacks not named Tre’Davious White.

What do you think, Bills fans? How worried are you about Allen not being able to take the next steps in his development as the Bills’ franchise quarterback? How confident are you in the team’s running backs and wide receivers? Will the offensive line make up for its porous play in 2018? Can another pass-rusher step up to compliment Hughes, Shaq Lawson, and Trent Murphy? Feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments section, and check out our podcast for thoughts on these topics and more on the latest Billieve: A Buffalo Bills Fan Podcast.
