The Morning Charge: A new year brings new hope
The new year is officially here and that means Buffalo Bills fans can look forward to a new season filled with hope and optimism.
I hope everyone reading this had a fun New Year’s Eve. The Buffalo Bills picked up a win on Sunday so I’m assuming that meant the party didn’t end until just a few hours ago.
The season is over and so is the holiday season. It all comes at once.
It is now 2019 and that means the Bills can get right to work on improving the roster and the play on the field in the new year.
The main pressure is on Brandon Beane to make moves both in free agency and the NFL Draft to make the Bills a contender heading into September. The fact the team still went 6-10 with so many glaring holes on the roster shows that the group isn’t too far away from the postseason.
It’s a day of sitting around, relaxing and watching football. Let’s take a look at the latest news surrounding the Bills in the first 2019 edition of The Morning Charge.
