Optimism runs high this time of year for the fans in Buffalo, after all, everyone has a 0-0 record. The same statements arise every year at this time: Why can’t the Bills make a run to the playoffs? We have improved so much. This team is ready to take the next step.
We heard it under the previous regime and the one before that etc. We need to stop fooling ourselves. The Buffalo Bills are not a good football team compared with the rest of the league. We are like the girl at the bar that thinks she is a solid 9 and a half, but in reality is a 6. The other teams in our division must have a good chuckle at some of the moves that are made.
We want to talk like it is 1991, but those days are long gone. Even the betting men in Vegas know this as the odds of the Bills winning the Super Bowl actually dropped after the draft. The Bills dropped two places in the ESPN power rankings after the draft. Do you really think what has been done over the last two months is enough to propel this team to the playoffs? The folks that make their livelihood on football betting don’t think so.
My prediction for 2014:
- The Bills will win a maximum of 7 games, but will likely be closer to 5.
- The Cleveland Browns will have 2 top-ten draft picks in 2014.
- The New York Jets will give the Patriots as run for the AFC East title, but ultimately the Patriots will win it again.
- The Dolphins will be 8-8 again.
What do you think Buffalo? How many wins can we expect in 2014?
