The Morning Charge: Bright spots all over the roster
Several position groups have emerged as bright spots for the Buffalo Bills in 2018. That and more in a Tuesday edition of The Morning Charge.
I remember a time earlier this season when it appeared that the Buffalo Bills had to upgrade nearly every position on the field.
But as time has gone on, playmakers have emerged on both sides of the ball.
The main area of concern was the wide receiver position. Kelvin Benjamin looked awful and Zay Jones wasn’t doing much. Now we know Benjamin was released and Jones has been surpassed in terms of production by Robert Foster, who has emerged as the top target on the team.
Isaiah McKenzie has also done well to give Josh Allen some talent on the outside. The position still needs a major upgrade, but at least there is some talent to retain heading into 2019.
On defense, the secondary has continued to play well and the linebacking corps is filled with several players who are Pro-Bowl worthy.
Both lines can use improvements but the team has come a long way from the disastrous start to the year. It is amazing what some competent quarterback play can bring to a team. It elevates everyone.
We take a look at this and more in today’s edition of The Morning Charge.
