The answers surrounding Josh Allen and his supporting cast will have to wait until the 2024 season kicks off in September, but until then, the question will continue to be asked and pondered. Everyone will weigh in, offering their opinion and analysis. That holds true for writer Jeffri Chadiha. He weighs in on this question and here are some of his thoughts on the matter.

"The first thing to understand here is that Allen is more than good enough to handle life without wide receiver Stefon Diggs.

The key is offensive coordinator Joe Brady having a full offseason to work with Allen and ponder the ways Buffalo needs to attack."

Chadiha mentions several of Allen's weapons in the Bills' offense, including Khalil Shakir, Keon Coleman, Curtis Samuel, James Cook, Dalton Kincaid, and Dawson Knox. Buffalo has a plethora of offensive weapons and how the offensive coordinator utilizes those weapons to create matchups will be the key to unlocking this offense. Allen will have the chance to locate the open player and distribute the ball effectively, which should also reduce the number of turnovers.

When Brady took over last season, we saw a rise in rushing attempts, but you might be surprised to hear that the pass attempts decreased by only an average of two a game. This would indicate the Bills' use of the running game allowed the Bills' offense to run more efficiently, and sustain drives. Their time of possession increased by an average of five minutes per game, possessing the ball for over half the time. This helps the offense stay in rhythm and keeps the defense fresh and rested. Additionally, the offense will look different in some ways. This won't be Joe Brady calling Ken Dorsey's offense, this will be Brady calling his own offense this time. The most intriguing aspect is what that will look like, aside from who will become Allen's go-to player.
