Cardinals allowed 17 sacks in under 2.5 seconds.  That's pretty bad.

Well having a statue for a QB didn’t help either ( IMO )

Lots of statue QB's in the NFL that have way more time to throw than that.

 

PFF 2018 offensive line rankings at us at #26, Cardinals dead last, and the Fins at #31.  Poor Rosen.  LOL.

Agree.  Still think Josh needs to a full season under his belt as QB to build a foundation.  

 

2020 will be the year the high expectations start imo.  

Unless Allen plays poorly this season then everyone will be back to panic mode

Come on, they were pretty bad.  The worse Bills OL I have seen in a long time.

What teams were worse in your opinion?

The only worse Bills line I can recall was the scab team in 1987.

I don't need playoffs to be happy; I simply need progress.  Next year is my, "playoffs or pissed," year.

We have been doing that for way too long.  Ditto the Sabres.  I'm not sure we're that patient with "the process."  Time to step up and win.

Probably so.  Thank you for commenting on what I said and not what some think I said.

I said they were "pretty bad".  LOL. I'm sticking with that.

Last year, the board was struggling to come to grips with the Bills decision to trade up and draft Josh Allen when Josh Rosen was still on the board

Much calmer this draft...

 

The only thing is, I remember being very worried, personally, that the OL would suck and expressing that view...and having many tell me it would be OK, or at least better than I thought.  It was hoped that Kelvin Benjamin would be rejuvenated by injury recovery in the off-season and would be the #1 we hoped for, while Clay would be rejuvanated by having a QB more willing to gun it than TT was.  Alas none of that was true, and while Zay did take a step, it wasn't a Giant Step.

 

So....it's a new season.  Hope Springs for the Bills fans! 

 

I hope the new line OL is improved...I hope the RB corps has "spring" in their step.  And I hope Josh Allen has taken a step. 

 

Go Bills!

 

 

 

 

This. In the current year people express concerns and its called being negative or clueless. While the year before was obviously horrible and this year is so much better. But if you go back and look it was the same rhetoric about how they know what they are doing and its part of the plan, etc.

I haven't read the posts in this thread, as they seem to have gotten into some detailed discussions that are nice to have but I'm not currently interested in them.

 

I do want to comment on the point of the OP, simply because I find the difference between last year and this year so startling.  

 

Everything seemed unsettled last year.  Giant question marks at quarterback, a big, uneasy feeling on the offensive line, question marks all over the receiving corps.  Concerns about the defense.

 

This year, there are questions, to be sure, but it feels like the likely answers are on the roster.  It wasn't like that year ago.   Between Ford and all the free agents, there should be at least adequate talent on the offensive line.   Coaching is a question mark.  Quarterback is a settled position; the only question is how much Josh will improve over last season.  Wideout has a couple of guys (Jones and Foster) who at least made some plays last season, a couple of free agent veterans who have had their share of success at the position (Beasley and Brown) and a couple of guys who are at least intriguing (Williams and Sills).  The defense seems more settled than last season, and Oliver can give us some hope of having someone special on the field.  

 

Bottom line, there are actual reasons why the team could be good in 2019.   They aren't there yet, but there is a whole lot less fear that they will be abysmal.  Last year, we had that fear.

Nope! 

I need playoffs.

The only way I’m happy without them is if we are the “ Team nobody wants to face” because we are on a hot streak and we just miss out in the final week.
