The stress of another Buffalo Bills season is about to set in so we can have some fun first and break down Billy Buffalo’s new look.

The Buffalo Bills quarterback competition will never end. I’m convinced of that.

Sunday’s game added some preseason stress for Bills fans, but it also featured a lighthearted moment. That was the reveal of the new-look Billy Buffalo. One may say he looks a bit more friendly.

Because these are football fans we are talking about, social media was abuzz with hot takes and harsh opinions on Billy’s new look. If anything, it was a nice distraction from the lackluster game we all saw.

The old version of Billy debuted at the start of the Bills playoff drought that was broken last season. For those who are superstitious, the change could be a bad omen.

Or it is just a creation by a marketing team looking to “spice things up” when I doubt people were outraged at how Billy has looked for nearly two decades.

While we await word on the quarterback situation, let’s take a look at the latest news surrounding the Bills in today’s edition of The Morning Charge.

A fun look at the reaction to the new Mr. William Buffalo. Hopefully he can be comfortable with his new look.

Will Corey Coleman make the 53-man roster? (BuffaLowDown, Steven Kubitza)

Back to football, Corey Coleman was acquired for basically nothing thanks to the Browns. It seems like he will get a shot with the Bills, and we will know for sure in just a few days.

PFF: Bills QB Josh Allen strong under pressure (Bills Wire, Justin DiLoro)

A positive look at Josh Allen’s performance this preseason. Maybe this will lead to him winning the starting job. He certainly hasn’t played worse than the other two.

Can the Buffalo Bills move on from quarterback AJ McCarron? (Buffalo Rumblings, Matt Warren)

A great dive into whether AJ McCarron could be traded before the season begins. He does have experience that could be useful in this quarterback room, but acquiring something in return if the plan is just to sit him isn’t the worst idea either.
