On Sunday, January 28th, the Buffalo Bills announced that interim offensive coordinator Joe Brady will fully take over the role during the 2024 season. He spent nine games as the interim this season in Buffalo after former coordinator Ken Dorsey was let go.
Buffalo gained way more success with Brady having the keys to the offensive machine in Orchard Park. The Bills went 6-1 to end the regular season with him at the helm. The one loss in Philadelphia that came in an overtime period still saw the offense put up 34 points and 505 total yards of offense. Buffalo also dominated time of possession that game as they held the ball for 40:30.
When it was all said and done at the end of the season, Buffalo was ranked in the top ten in both passing and rushing yards. They were also 6th in the NFL in total touchdowns. Brady was able to re-evaluate and reinvigorate the Bills season and it led to a then 6-6 team ending up as one of the best offenses in the NFL and it gave Buffalo the two seed in the AFC.
So what now? Well, the Bills season ended in the divisional round at the hands of the now AFC champion Kansas City Chiefs. So now that offseason time has struck in Upstate New York, the Bills front office can now look at needs and improvements they need for the offense ahead of 2024. And initially, it looks like a season Buffalo can be competitive within again.
Whatever Brady needs, the Bills can provide and relegate. It will be a key conversation to have too, as the Bills have the second-highest cap number heading into the offseason. But, if the second half of this season tells you anything, it is that Brady can bring even more success to the Bills and their offense in 2024.
