BarleyNY Posted May 19 Share Posted May 19 34 minutes ago, Success said: Agreed, and Beane has stated a few times that he's not interested in trying to go all in for one season by compromising our competitiveness in future years. He wants us to be a contender every year that we have Allen - which coincidentally is exactly what I want. That said, I'm kind of blown away by this offseason. Knowing our cap situation, I didn't see us doing much of anything. Instead, we have upgrades at both guard positions, RB, WR and TE. Kincaid could end up being our Kelce, and will create match-up problems for defenses. Even a signing like Ford is going to be pretty impactful. Beane really looked at that Cincy game and made upgrades based on that - we're more physical, we should have a better run game, our receivers have better hands and YAC. I keep seeing on other boards that the Bills are "taking a step back." I think the 2023 team will be our best yet. I certainly don’t fault the Bills for taking a long term approach. I’m a little shocked by the degree to which some other AFC teams have pushed in this season though. I’m not quite as high on the team this season as most others. Part of that is the increased competition. Also I almost always take a wait-and-see approach to draft picks and non-premium FA signings. I like that the OGs were addressed, but we have to wait and see how (and when) that works out. I do not like that we haven’t addressed OT. Kincaid looks very promising as a receiving TE/big slot, but I’m certainly not anointing him the next Kelce yet. I don’t like that WR really wasn’t improved. RB seems like it’s a push from last year too. I think we will see an improvement in our running game if the OGs improve with Torrence getting on the field. The defense’s success will likely depend on the return to form of Miller and White as well as how well Edmunds has been replaced. Maybe there will be a play calling improvement with McDermott taking the reins too. I don’t mean to pee in anyone’s Cheerios - especially at this time of year. Sometimes everything clicks and that’s possible for the Bills this year, but it is rare. 3 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
