We have had a lot of conversation about Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen and #BillsMafia living in Wildest Dreams Land after the season he had last year. We have since had a lot of conversation about him taking the next step and what that could look like as well as what regression might look like. What exactly does progress look like? What does plateauing look like? What does regression look like? Is all regression bad? What if the Bills become a heavy ground-game offense and simply don’t need Allen to throw as much in 2021, and that philosophy gets them to the Super Bowl? Do the stats matter?
The addition of Emmanuel Sanders opposite of Stefon Diggs should give Allen two dependable targets in the passing game. But the Bills got better on the other side of the ball this offseason, too.
They addressed their inconsistent pass rush by selecting defensive linemen Greg Rousseau and Boogie Basham with their first- and second-round picks, respectively. Those two will join Mario Addison and Jerry Hughes to form a solid edge-rushing unit. Defensive tackle Star Lotulelei will also return after he opted out of the 2020 season.
The Bills extended their best second-level coverage defender in Matt Milano, who lines up alongside Tremaine Edmunds to form a strong linebacker duo. All-Pro cornerback Tre’Davious White mans the secondary with two playmaking safeties, Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer, both of whom have at least 15 career interceptions.
I think that the buffalo bills would go further this year than they did any other year I have a lot of faith!
