Brian Daboll

Another reason for the Buffalo Bills remaining a Top 5 offense is the fact that Brian Daboll will be returning for another season as offensive coordinator. This certainly didn’t seem likely early in the offseason as Daboll was considered for a number of head coaching openings.

Daboll is entering his fourth year as offensive coordinator and the first two years the group struggled, which likely was tied to the limitations Josh Allen had. As Allen improved, Daboll and his playcalling appeared to evolve with him over time. This past year, Allen had 311 pass attempts when the Bills were ahead compared to only 137 pass attempts in 2019.

This offseason, Daboll once again seems to have a great understanding of what his offense does well and where they struggle. The focus isn’t going to be to find that even run/pass split but again lean on their franchise quarterback and make the run game more efficient.

The relationship Brian Daboll and Josh Allen has built over the years paid off last year and that relationship should continue to drive the success of this offense.
