Anyone who was thinking that it could not get any worse than week one has not been watching Buffalo Bills football for very long. It looked like the defense got a little jealous of the offense and all the headlines they got from being so ill prepared a week ago. Fast forward to week 2 and the Bills have turned into a full blown train wreck on both sides of the ball. It has become quite clear that Tyrod Taylor will not be seeing the end of his contract and the search for the franchise QB continues. With the Cardinals coming to town next week and then a trip to New England, the Bills will most likely be staring at 0-4 and will have to think about blowing up the whole thing…..again.
I am really having a hard time finding anything positive about this Bills team as every single week, there is different unit that looks like they have forgotten how to play football. As a result, Greg Roman was fired after two dreadful offensive performances to start the season, and Anthony Lynn is in. What I am worried about is that it won’t matter who the coordinator is as long as you have a QB who can’t make all the throws. Although Doug Whaley has made some nice picks here and there, he still made the terrible mistake of using two first round picks on Sammy and another one on EJ. How are other teams picking up what seem to be franchise QBs in the 2nd and 3rd rounds? To spend those 1st round picks on a receiver when you already KNEW Manuel was not the answer is totally inexcusable.
At the Jets game, Fitz shredded the Bills defense every which way while the offense did not even get into the redzone until the end of the game. Is the season really over after two weeks? The train is off the rails and I don’t see anything that can get i back on track this year. If they start 0-4, it is time to sell off some of their more valuable veteran pieces. I am sure a contender would be happy to add a Kyle Williams or McCoy so it is time to pull a Cleveland Browns maneuver and admit that you have a problem, a big one.
