Bills Get No Respect

The Bills now moving on from the draft sure have a lot of people thinking negatively. I have seen grades from as high as A- and as low as a D but those towards the lower end really gave it to the Bills. I just don’t understand why?

Everybody who follows this team has known for some time this team has needed a QB. As we all know that is exactly what Buddy Nix addressed right away. When that occurred it opened up big discussions as to why they did that and how it will now set this team back. EJ is not ready and will need to sit, the Bills needed help in other areas and why didn’t they wait to the 2nd round to address that position without anyone else drafting a QB. When hearing this I was thinking about how much of this down talk would be directed to the Patriots, Steelers, Giants or even Green Bay. Now I know these teams have been successful as of late but they all have at least one thing in common. The QB position is and has been covered for some time and has allowed them to progress in other areas. On the other hand that position has been lost for some time and now this organization is trying to change it.

The Bills coming into next season with a new coaching staff I believe will have everybody always keeping an eye on them. The looks of an exciting offense with possibly EJ Manuel, CJ Spiller, Fred Jackson, Stevie Johnson, Robert Woods and also Marquise Goodwin playing an up tempo game with great speed. Along with that this team’s defense I believe will be worlds better than last year. Last year they looked so predictable and never put up pressure. A new coordinator, schemes, players and attitude will for sure put more energy into that side of the ball.

So with what this team has done I hope the national media realizes this team has to start somewhere. Starting with the most important position it will hopefully allow us to then focus on other areas and build. When this season begins I think a lot of the negativity will be shifted from this organization and hopefully stay away. What you do think?
