If Allen is real deal, bills make playoffs

Recommended Posts

Nice pieces added in free agency. Could still use another piece on offense whether that’s OL, TE, RB

 

but if Allen is going to be a franchise QBs, this team makes playoffs.  Good QBs can carry a team to playoffs almost every year 

 

If they dont make it and the team isn’t decimated by injuries, I will hit the panic button on qb

Even though I wouldn't be quite as black or white as your view, I generally agree with the underlying sentiment that what matters more than any draft choice or FA pickup is the growth from Allen from year one to two.  There is nothing more important than that.

Where the heck is this coming from? The guy was basically our entire offense down the stretch and performed exceptionally. Now you’re ready to draft another QB if we don’t make the playoffs next year? As far as I’m concerned, the WRs, OL, RBs and run defense have more to prove than Allen at this point. We still don’t have proven impact players at skill positions.

I’ll take solid progress, and be pleased with that. There are a lot of moving parts here, and NFL QB is not an easy job.  QBorBust2018 can picnic if you like. I hope I never panic over a sports team.

If he and Beasley can get on the same page with those 6-7 yard outs, that should open up a lot for this offense.

I expect a Goff like improvement in year 2. 

 

Playoffs is the goal.

I expect modest improvement for both of last year's first round picks. I honestly don't believe either of them will ever be great.

And if not, we're looking at a new GM & Head Coach.

As good as Josh Allen is, he can't do it by himself, although God knows he tried to put this team on his back and carry them all season.  We need WR's that can get open and catch the ball, and right now Foster is the only one who seems to do that with regularity.

I’m expecting a big jump from him this year.

 

Bigger than the one over Barr? That’s asking a lot.

Even a modest improvement in offensive line play will give Allen the opportunity to show his stuff. If he gets decent protection, I am eager to see what he does with it.

I think this a year that we get back to respectability, whether that means playoffs or not. I think we'll be in the mix & the world we see the Bills as a team to watch.

 

Once we're on the cusp, that's when we go all out & spend big on a top playmaker via FA or trade next offseason to put us over the top.

As long as we can stay in the "in the hunt" graphic until week 16/17 that should be a step in the right direction. There's lots of teams in the conference most would say are better than us at the moment: Pats, Browns, Chiefs, Chargers, Colts, and Texans for sure and a case can be made for the Steelers, Ravens (coaching/defense is always excellent), Jaguars if Foles works out, and the Jet$.

Offensive Line improvement should give Allen a bit more time to get the ball out in a controlled fashion.. ( add another OL with a Day 1 or 2 draft pick to improve this further..)

WR and TE's that can catch the ball will help him... ( add another one with a Day 1 or 2 draft pick..)

 

I think its OK for people to have some expectations that they can make the playoffs in 2019...

Is Phillip Rivers the real deal? How many times has he missed the playoffs? Is Drew Brees? Ben Rothlisburger? Good QB's miss the playoffs sometimes.

I expect a leap and we should make the playoffs if he does. Our schedule is not very tough if he does make that leap. The Dolphins twice, the NY Giants, Washington Redskins should be auto wins to get us to 4 already 

 

we could easily win games against the Jets(2), Bengals, Ravens, Titans, Broncos, Steelers

 

Tough games against the Pats(2), Browns, Cowboys, Eagles and I would suspect we’d win a couple of these games

Josh will have to work on the accuracy of his short crosses to make Beasley shine. If he does this I feel the other routes will be fine. I'm giving him 3 full years before judgement or any panic. He'll improve this year, no doubt.

I would add Trubisky into that convo as well.

 

Bills did exactly what both Rams and Bears did after their young QB's rookie year...rebuild the OL, WRs, and TEs.  Both QB's made significant improvements in their 2nd year.  

 

IMO, Bills WILL make the playoffs next year.  The question mark for me is if it will be as a Wildcard or Divisional winner.  I legit think we CAN win the division next year if the pieces all gel early.  But it may take a few games to get their rhythm, and if that is the case, may make it hard to dethrone the Pats but we can still make the playoffs.  Look at Bears, took a few games before Trubisky started finding his way in the offense in his 2nd year.  Nothing is more important for a QB than timing and feel with the other 10 guys on the field.  That can take time, but I love that Allen is wasting no time and working out all offseason with all of them.

I’m leaning the same way. At least by last season’s standards, the schedule seems easier, which is half the battle. So many new faces (and more to come) will make ‘gelling’ an early challenge, then there’s the injury factor.. I think da Bears were pretty good right from the get go last year. They were well ahead of GB in the opener until you know who did you know what. But I agree, it appears to be the same blueprint. Hope we can trade for a Kalil Mack just before the Opener...
