Yes sports fans, I’m projecting that the Buffalo Bills are looking at a 5-11 record for 2018 NFL season, because of poor front office decisions. You can’t get rid of quality talent and replace it with mediocre players. Bills General Manager Brandon Beene botched up the draft by trading away both of his 2nd round picks in order to move up to pick Josh Allen. He could have stayed put in 12th position and still picked Josh Allen.
The Bills gave away both second round draft picks which could have been used on young quality linemen which were available in the second round. Beene has been worse on bringing in bum free agents like Marshall Newhouse, Vontae Davis (a shell of his former self), Corey Coleman, and Russell Bodine – the biggest blunders of season so far. The current linemen Vlad Ducasse has terrible footwork was evident against Bengals. The Bills will have to scour the waive wire after all the teams have reduced their roster down by Saturday at 4 pm. Beene and Head Coach Sean McDermott drafted their QB of the future but failed to protect him with a quality offensive line.
That’s like buying an expensive automobile and not getting auto insurance on it. Josh Allen will end up getting seriously injured behind this sorry offensive line, similar to Andrew Luck of the Indianapolis Colts having his spleen removed along with two shoulder surgeries resulting in him missing the last two NFL seasons. It’s an old school philosophy, that’s not working in 2018.
You can’t hire a man with very little experience that never was a General Manager and only is a very good friend of the Head Coach. But wait a minute! Isn’t that how it’s done in other employment areas? The Bills are playing first 5 out of 7 games on the road and it doesn’t help matters that your defensive unit has not been the same since Marcell Dareus’ trade to Jacksonville last year along with costing the Bills over 14.75 million in salary cap space for 2018.
That was one of the worse moves in Buffalo Bills history. Marcell’s replacement, Star Lotuleie, takes way too many plays off and is often injured. Brandon Beene has failed to bring upgrades to several positions especially the offensive line.
That’s why I’m projecting a 5 – 11 season and a top 3 draft pick for the 2019 NFL draft. The Bills travel to Baltimore to open the season and a dull defensive struggle will take place and who will protect our QB from Terrell Surggs? The Ravens offensive is pretty sorry as well. I see a 10-9 final score with the Ravens barely beating Bills on opening day.
I feel sorry for all the football fans that have to watch this game!
