NFL Defense in Year 2021 and beyond is a mirage - it comes and goes. Do not be fooled by 1 game (the Super Bowl).

 

Your best defense is a great offense. If your offense is staying on the field and scoring at will, your defense just needs to be good enough.

 

The Bills Offense in 2020 was not good enough versus the Chiefs in both games, not even close actually.

 

OFFENSE needs to be the primary focus.

So which RB do you want with pick 30?

I don't disagree with you that a good defense is a great offense.  During our glory years with our juggernaut offenses, our "bend but don't break" defense wasn't legendary, but we had HOF type talent at every level: Bruce on the line, Biscuit AND Talley at LB, Odomes in the secondary....

 

But time and time again its been PROVEN that in the big show, its a stellar defense that can pave the way to hoist the Lombardi.  I know you said it was only one game last year, but it was THE game!!  Tampa's D shut down one of the most prolific offenses to grace the field!  They made a half a billion dollar quarterback look like a journeyman....

Travis Etienne.

 

"But he's a RB"

 

It's the 30th pick in the draft. I'm ok at that spot with investing in a weapon, not a runner - in the mold of Alvin Kamara. Etienne is much better than CEH btw. Catch-first, run-2nd RB with home run ability in both facets.

 

When the WRs spread the field and clear out room underneath, a simple swing pass to Alvin Kamara 2.0 will result in 15-20 yard 1st downs. This element (dynamic receiving RB who can also keep defenses honest running the ball) is a huge missing piece of the offense.

 

Etienne will also take some runs to the house. Those home run plays in the run game will alter the defense, as well.

 

He's also the perfect fit in a Pass-First Offense. He doesn't waste time in the backfield moving laterally, he just cuts upfield.

Any thoughts on a player we might be able to throw our 30th pick to for a quality DE that makes a immediate impact for us?

 

 

Beane did a great job quickly working out a deal for a much needed young, elite WR when Diggs he made it known he was unhappy in Minny.  But those opportunities don’t come around often.  I can’t think of a single young, elite edge defender that could be pried away from his team right now.  Free agency might have some options though.

I would try for Mack. He’s getting up there in age and has a pretty big contract. IIRC there was mutual interest when he was traded to the bears but we didn’t want to trade Hughes.

 

 

I'm sure the Bears were thinking this a few years ago.  Thought they were a Mack away from being a SB contender. Didn't work.

Diggs put an extra $10M on our salary cap and for the future. And he was wildly unusual in how cheap he was. Last year that was not a problem.

 

This year it would be a disaster.

I think the Bills would need to trade up to get him.

This would be great! Bring him back to Buffalo!

My fingers are crossed for K. Toney.

 

Make it happen Beane.

Haason Reddick is a free agent OLB from the Cardinals,  only 26  with 13 sacks last season.  Former 13th overall first rounder with elite closing speed,  market value is around 11-12million.  Cardinals may not have money now that they gave JJ around 16 mill

I don't mean to hi-jack this thread, so I'll end it here.

 

I wasn't arguing with you. Just based on your post, I figured you'd rather go offense instead of defense at 30. Specifically, a play-maker. And that only leaves one option, a RB. And for the record, I'd be ecstatic if we got either Etienne, Harris, or Williams at 30. 👍
