Buffalo Bills as a Super Bowl Team


Every year we get excited about the plans and the moves that the Buffalo Bills make.  We sit down, once the schedule is made, and look t see and predict how many games the Bills should and could win.  We then realistically go back through and determine that we were wrong and add one or two more games to the win column and all of a sudden we are sitting with the Bills as an 11-5 team.

You hear everyone say that the Bills are only 2 or 3 players away from the playoffs.  I know I said it yesterday in a power rankings article.  I realistically believe that the Bills are 2-3 players away from making the playoffs and probably another player away from the Super Bowl.

With those 2-4 players to make the playoffs and the Super Bowl though, how many years will it take them to amass the crew that they need.

I don’t think that they will get all the players they need in one year, if they do that would be great, but I think we look at a winning record this next year and at earliest they make the playoffs in two years with a Super Bowl run in the next 3-5 years.

The direction that they are currently headed in is one that shows hope but I just don’t think that they will be that team next year.  I would love be wrong, but I think that they get one maybe two players out of this draft and add another in next years draft assuming they don’t lose anybody that is a difference maker.

So, in 2-3 years they are a playoff team and in 3-5 they make the Super Bowl.

    I sure hope you are the most wrong you’ve ever been. Hope is great and sad. The Bills give me hope,always, yet make me sad too. Last year I had blind hope thinking we would win 10-11 games…We know how that turned out. This year I HOPE for 9+ wins. Hope is a great thing, but sadness comes with it. GO BILLS!!

    It is foolish and disillusion to think that the Bills will ever make it to the Super Bowl. The current organization hasn’t even found a servicable quarterback yet. Last year they drafted a quarterback with glass knees and this year they may not even draft a quarterback. With such the short-sighted approach taken by the current management and the likelihood that the Bills will be leaving the Buffalo area once Ralph Wilson breaths his last, there is little chance for this team. Hope springs eternal until reality sets in.

    The author did not say SB. He was posing a dream type of report. And nobody in their right mind would say that either. Please don’t project your stuff on others, be real with your own ideas or opinions. GO BILLS!!

    It is correct — the Bills are only 2 or 3 players away from the playoffs — 4 from the Superbowl.

    Problem is: in order to get there, you need to keep the good players you already have PLUS get the new 2-to-4 players.

    ** We have allowed several great players escape through Free Agency: Andy Levitre, Jason Peters, etc
    ** Superbowl-caliber players given away for poor draft picks: Marshawn Lynch
    ** Jairus Byrd: we could trade him away and receive at least one 1st round draft pick–but, we refuse to do this–instead, we will let him walk away as an unrestricted free agent and will not receive anything in return.

    Since 2000, the Bills have been a Farm Team for the big-market franchises–we develop them as rookies, then, give them away when the players become elite caliber.

    These are not coach or player-level failures. Rather, these are GM-level failures. An excellent GM (such as Bill Polian) can really turn around a franchise — medium-level GM’s will sink the franchise.

    Hopefully, our new GM can turn things around.

    Its very true, we sit here and say “could have won 3-4 more games” only this time I believe its true. We started 3 QB’s because of injuries. Let’s call it like it is and say that there is no team in the NFL that could have a winning season under those conditions. Maybe I’m optimistic, not a guru by any means, but I feel if EJ stayed healthy and our secondary wasn’t on the shelf the first half of the season, it very well could have been a playoff year. I understand that injuries happen but 3 quarterbacks??? That’s just crappy luck and almost unheard of!!! Oh and 2 out of the 3 were rookies and the third (Lewis) might as well been a rookie too. Maybe I’m a delusional Bills fan, but this time next year I truly believe we will have broken the playoff curse!

    How do you as a fan not know exactly what happened with these players? The Bills didn’t let them leave, they offered what they were worth to the Bills and these greedy players demanded too much that they left when Buffalo refused to match their demands.Why are you comparing the old mgmt team to the current team? It is asinine and outright dumb. It’s like that ‘cheap’ crap past o nand on

    and on…A lie made up by the media and our fans, not the truth ever. Fans that blow the same crap over and over and not knowing pisses me off. So repeat this garbage and it will be on you when a true knowing fan defends the Bills as I’m doing right now! GO BILLS!!
