The Drought ends in 2015

The Buffalo Bills have done everything right this off-season.  The team has remodeled its roster to turn into serious contenders in the AFC.  What a perfect time to take advantage if Brady does miss four games right?  After the Bills moves, they turned into a pretty good team.  Now it is almost time for them to prove it.  The Buffalo Bills will make the playoffs.

The Buffalo Bills made a splash early this offseason with the hiring of Rex Ryan. Ryan had ups and downs with the Jets, but he is ready to get his coaching career back on the right track.  His Buffalo Bills pickup truck tells me that this guy is ready for some football.

The free agent and trades were also a big plus for the Bills.  They added the athletic, speedy, fantasy football stud LeSean McCoy.  They added Matt Cassel to give the QB depth chart experience.  Richie Incognito will get another chance with the Bills.  To conclude, Percy Harvin will join Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods to now a nice WR core.BillsTrade

LeSean McCoy was the biggest acquisition.  While the Bills gave up Kiko Alonso for him, McCoy will be nothing short of a star in a run heavy offense.  He will also be a threat in the passing game.

mattcasselMatt Cassel has put together a nice NFL career.  His biggest NFL showing comes when he became the Patriots starter when Tom Brady has knee surgery and missed the entire season. Cassel then showed sparks of greatness with the Chiefs in 2010 when he threw 27 touchdowns and only 7 interceptions in fifteen games.  Cassel will back-up Tyrod Taylor in the Bills first pre-season game at home versus the Panthers.

Richie Incognito was involved in a bullying/harassment last season with the Dolphin.  Those actions got him suspended and under a lot of scrutiny for doing such an awful thing.  The Bills are giving him another chance in the NFL and hopefully Incognito has learned his lesson.

HarvinBillsPercy Harvin’s NFL career has not been what is really should be.  Harvin has the talent to be a number one WR on any NFL team but injuries and concussions have held him back.  Harvin has only played one full season and has yet to reach a 1,000 yard season.  Harvin has the talent to exceed 1,000 yards this year.  He will be used a lot in the slot and looks to make an impact.  Along with Watkins and Woods, he is key to be able to produce when the running game is not.

These guys plus Mario Williams, Charles Clay, Marquise Goodwin, and Anthony Dixon, the Bills have put themselves on the team to watch list.  I have them making the playoffs because they completely took control of the offseason.  Despite not having a 1st round pick in the draft, they made the right trades and signings to put them in a good position in the division.  The AFC East will be very competitive and teams have a chance to catch the defending champs if Brady’s suspension does not change.

The Jest also just picked up jaw breaking LB IK Enemkpali off waivers.  Bills players better make sure to pay him back or else…

The Bills have all the pieces but sometimes that means nothing.  We will see if Rex Ryan’s new approach and upgraded roster gives this team its first playoff berth since 1999.  The Bills currently have the longest post-season drought in the NFL as of now, will that be broken or will they hit sixteen seasons without playing a seven-teeth game.
