We have already begun to move on from the playoff aspect for the Buffalo Bills. It has been almost like second nature for them not to make the playoffs. It is kind of like a reverse sense for the Yankees or Patriots in that they are expected to make the playoffs every year and you don’t really pay much attention to them and where they are in the standings because it is second nature for them to be there. Same thing with the Bills, you live without something for so long and then there you go, no playoffs.
So where do the Bills go from here. The trade deadline is well past so there will be no major movement at this point. All they can really do is begin to address and take stock into what they have as well as where they want to go and what is available for them to get there.
Last week we talked about the Bills needed a stud wide receiver to take the place of Stevie and become that dominate receiver that is going to make the plays when they need him to. We looked at three possibilities last week but this week we are going to change directions and look opposite the wide receiver.
One thing I noticed while watching the games these past couple of weeks is that the Bills are in need of a cornerback as well. Leodis McKelvin is not a number 2 corner back in the league at this point and he is not getting any younger.
Buffalo is in need of a big shut down cornerback and there are only two that I would look at, at this point that are projected in the first 2 rounds; Justin Gilbert out of Oklahoma State and Kyle Fuller out of Virginia Tech.
