Buffalo's Offensive Struggles

“Maybe they should huddle up more.”

If the Bills learn anything from their shutout loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, it might come from the Steelers linebacker James Farrior.

No one needs to be reminded that the Buffalo Bills, the dominate team in the AFC of the 1990s, has not made the playoffs, or really been a threat or contender in ten years.  The words from the Buffalo locker room after the game are not going to be raising any hopes either.

“We’ve got a lot of issues that we’ve got to solve,” coach Dick Jauron said. “We’ve got to solve them very quickly.”

This sounds like a coach that knows he better win, or he is not going to coach in Buffalo much longer.

Trent Edwards says they are still fighting and have a lot to learn.  It’s still early he continued.  Maybe this is a testament of how the Bills don’t take the preseason seriously.  It could be the lamenting of a Buffalo quarterback who wants or needs another three or four seasons to learn the offense and rebuild.    The Steelers take the preseason seriously, and their defense has not allowed a touchdown in three pre season games.

A lot to learn? I think that is an understatement,  in four games, the Buffalo starters have combined for 303 yards, fifteen first downs, a feild goal, and have turned the ball over 5 times.  Edwards couldn’t even get the ball past the midfield mark against the Steelers.

Its going to be a long season, and it might be safe to say, tailgaiting is going to be the only reason to hang out in Orchard Park on a frigid Sunday this season.
