Never NEVER Give-up Posted January 31 Author Share Posted January 31 On 1/30/2023 at 11:58 AM, Nextmanup said: I think we would have lost, maybe by a lot, to the Bengals on MNF this year had the game continued, and they beat us easily and badly in the our playoff game; they are NOT a good matchup for us and we will have big trouble with them next year too, if it comes to that. We need a small rebuild this off-season, and have a lot to address. We will still be in the conversation, but don't expect anyone to name us their pre-season Super Bowl favorite. No way. I think we are do for a slight regression next season, which will only turn the heat on coaching/coordinators more. Agree the Bengals looked sky-high in the MNF game, though who knows how it would have turned out had Hamlin not been injured - his injury crushed the Teams psyche and it's a wonder we beat NE & Miami. Losing in the playoffs to the Bengals is leaving a horrible taste in Bills' mouths - I see that as a revenge game next year. SB Favorite in 2023? Who knows - remember, it wasn't until we got Von Miller that we became the popular choice for 2022. That highlights what 2023 will be about - remember Bean & McDermott always say that each year is a different team and IT REALLY IS. The salary cap and the comings and goings of Free Agents, draftees, and trades will turn-over 35% or more of the roster (Fact - 35% turnover between 2021 & 2022). This is happening on EVERY team - the Chiefs, Eagles and Bengals too. It is WAY too early to diminish the Bills at this point in time - we need to see where everyone is after the Draft (May 1st).

We scored 10 points and unless those guys can play on the O-line or receiver, not much is going to change that. . . . maybe the defense doesn't blow coverages on the 1st 2 TD's &/or Von Miller gets home on Burrows (he held the ball longer on those 2 throws) - just sayin' 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
