Last night the NFL held the first round of the Draft, and the Buffalo Bills made a big jump in the draft order. They went from nine to four. Picks aside,the addition of Sammy Watkins should help the team.
However, this is what the pick truly means for Bills fans. The aggressiveness shown last night by the Bills front office is nothing more than a complete change in their approach. We have been hearing for months that it’s going to be about winning. Finally fans got to see a glimpse of what was promised. Simply stated if this is the beginning of a new era than this is not your grandpa’s Buffalo Bills any more.
With rumors all around this once great franchise, and doubt hanging over Ralph Wilson Stadium like a dooms day cloud it was nice to see the people trusted to run the team have guts, and the drive to mortgage the future in an attempt to lat the foundation for success this year.
With round two starting at 7pm tonight, I hope the Bills show the same determination and go get the player they want, not just sit and hope he falls into their laps. Doug Whaley, and Doug Marrone seem to have a vision, and so far it’s looking like they want to join the big boys, and stretch the field.
If last night is the start of how the Bills will do business for the foreseeable future, I like how they are doing business.
