8) Sean McDermott earns Coach of the Year honors.
Back in early April, I predicted Buffalo would be the NFL's Cinderella team in 2019. In the wake of a draft that saw the Bills steal DT Ed Oliver and wisely move up for OL Cody Ford, I fully stand by that Cinderella forecast. GM Brandon Beane has done a fantastic job building this roster. But my bullishness on the Bills stems most from the guy in the headset.
McDermott is a fantastic teacher and leader of men. His defense quietly ranked second in the NFL in yards allowed last season. And his team exudes toughness and discipline, giving Buffalo a great opportunity to overachieve.
As much as I like the Bills being underdogs, I also love them getting some national attention. I've always appreciated Adam Shein's comments and actually believe that he's on point with most of his predictions. From what he's done and accomplished the last couple of seasons, I could definitely see this happening. Additionally, if he does earn Coach of the Year honors, that means we're a playoff team. GO BILLS!
