Pressure Mounts On The Bills

The Bills have had a productive  offseason by bringing in some household names into Buffalo. Names such as Rex Ryan and LeSean McCoy headline the Bills offseason moves, but pressure will continue to mount on the Bills front office if they can't begin to turn things around.

Things will begin with new owner Alex Miller who will be looking to turn this team into a continual winner in the AFC East. The Bills look to become contenders, however will have to compete with the proven performers in the Patriots and up and coming risers in the Jets and Dolphins.

Miller has stated that his main focus throughout the next season is to turn the teams performance around. Miller will make sure he is very familiar with the roster and will be consulting with head coach Rex Ryan and the  training staff in order to improve the teams roster to help make the appropriate moves going forward.

[size=47]Alex Miller was quoted as stating that, " A fair assessment of all players will be taking place over the next four weeks in order to get the best roster possible". He later said, 'that the Bills front office is looking to make moves for the future of this team'.[/size]

New Season, Fresh Start

The first week of the NFL regular season is underway and for a lot of teams it presents a fresh start. The Bills are one of the teams to head into the new season with a clean slate under new owner Alex Miller.

Coach Ryan and Miller have both acknowledged the poor outings during the preseason but stress that things will turn around during the regular season and it all begins in week 1 against the Colts.

The Bills headed into this game with a new look roster and were labelled as the underdogs and rightfully so, the Colts offense has some potent weapons that could steal the game away from the Bills. Where as the Bills have cleaned out shop and lack the home run threat on offense, whilst the Bills have put together a solid roster it is not of the same quality as the elite teams in the NFL.

So what was the outcome....

The Bills managed to put out notice to every other team in the NFL by demoralizing the Colts 45-7. 

The opening drives for both teams resulted in a touchdown, however momentum was on the Colts side, they drove down the field with ease... however in a quick turn of events, kick returner Marquise Goodwin managed to break out a 95 yard kick return for a touchdown and this is when things began to swing in the favor of the Bills.

The Bills offense was lead by frontman Tyrod Taylor and he looked poised in the pocket, dissecting the Colts defense with precision passing. But it was the Bills two headed running attack that stole the show in this game, both LeSean McCoy and rookie running back Karlos Williams finished the game with 100+ rushing yards.

Bills player stats:


[size=47] Passing: Tyrod Taylor had a QB rating of 147.9 as a direct result of his smart reads and quick decision making. He manged to throw for 191 yards with 2tds off of 16 completions on 18 attempts.[/size]

Rushing: LeSean McCoy had a bulk of the carries and really opened up the game, he finished the day with 18 carries for 147 yards, but it was Karlos Williams who managed to find his way into the endzone on 2 occasions. Karlos Williams finished the day with 8 carries for 131 yards and two scores.

Receiving: The receiving game excelled under rookie wide receiver Dezmin Lewis who helped put the game away by reeling in 5 receptions for 75 yards and 2tds.

Defense: Our defense was lead by two new recruits, Zaviar Gooden and Jeromy Miles who managed to pop up everywhere on defense and lead the team with 6 tackles each. Nigel Bradham managed to disrupt the Colts rushing attack by getting in the backfield and recording 2 tackles for a loss. Bradham also managed to put pressure on Luck with a sack and his partner in crime Jerry Hughes recorded 1.5 sacks.

Despite the strong outting in week 1, the Bills shook things up by trading rookie cornerback Ronald Darby to the Vikings for Trae Waynes and a 5th round draft pick. We managed to sit down with the Bills owner to discuss this trade, here's what he said, " Coach Ryan and I, really liked Darby. He is a young kid who has a high motor and good instincts around the football but we feel that we have a corner in Trae Waynes with the same potential to be an elite corner in this league, however has the athleticism and ball hawking skills we would like to build our secondary around".

Make sure to check in next week as we  breakdown the results of the Bills vs Patriots game.

Changes Are A Coming 
Despite the Bills excellent start to the regular season, changes have continued to take place under the new regime of owner Alex Miller.

As week 1 of the regular season came to a close, Miller made a surprise move to trade cornerback Ronald Darby to the Vikings for Trae Waynes and a draft pick. However further changes have been made and this time it was to address a position of need.

The Bills have released 6 year center Kraig Urbik and left guard Cyril Richardson. Here's what Miller had to say, " I would first like to thank both Kraig and Cyril for their services over the last few years with the Bills organization. Unfortunately this decision came about to better fill our needs on the offensive line and we felt that there were some gems available in free agency".

The Bills have signed free agents, Russell Bodine (center) and left gaurd Terry Poole. These signings have provided the Bills with a more formidable offensive line.

Following these signings the following positional changes were made:

* LT Ryan Schraeder moved to RT
* LG Terry Poole moved to RG
* RG John Miller moved to LG.

Revamped And Roaring To Go

Heading into week 2 of the regular season, saw a host of changes made to the Bills 53 man roster. All of us over here in Buffalo were skeptical about the decisions that were made but did they pay off in week 2 as the Bills hosted the Patriots in their first inner division game of the season.

The Bills headed into this game full of confidence after they defeated the Colts with ease in week 1. However the Patriots are no ordinary team, they have a pro bowl caliber roster everywhere you look and Tom Brady will have a fiery motivation after the offenses bad start in week 1 against the Steelers.

So what was the outcome....

The Bills pushed their case futher along for Division contenders as they dispatched the Patriots 28-7.

The Bills opening drive saw a couple rush attempts from McCoy shutdown in the backfield and eventually  lead to a punt away. Tom Brady's first drive wasn't much better as he threw an interception on the very first play to new recruit Jason McCourty. The offense marched back onto the field and scored  a touchdown through the air to Charles Clay to open the scoring in this game.

Tyrod Taylor once again looked tidy in the pocket, with some help from his oline he was able to pick apart this Patriots defence even without the help of the running back duo. Ultimately it was the defense that shined in this outting as they tore apart the Tom Brady lead Patriots.

Bills Player Stats:

Passing:
Tyrod Taylor displayed yet another methodical passing attack as he threw through the air with precision. Tyrod finished the day with  a QB rating of 117.4 as a result of his 157 yards and 2 touchdown  performance with 16 completions on just 23 attempts.

Rushing:
The Bills rushing attack wasn't anywhere near as devastating as the attack that was on display against the Colts. However McCoy still put together decent numbers, he had 13 carries for 56 yards. Yet it was quarterback Tyrod Taylor that finished off McCoys work by scoring two touchdowns on the ground.

Receiving:
Once again the Bills receivers didn't have huge numbers but helped extend drives with timely catches. Sammy Watkins lead the way with his 6 catches and a touchdown, however Watkins only managed 32 yards. It was tightend Charles Clay who provided a spark in the passing game with his 5 receptions for 85 yards and a touchdown catch.

Defense: 
The defense looked phenomenal against the Patriots, the Patriots really tested the Bills secondary as the leading tacklers were, cornerback Stephon Gilmore with 8 tackles and safeties Jeromy Miles and Jason McCourty followed with 6 tackles each. Defensive end Sam Montgomery opened his sack count for the season with a sack on Brady and Nigel Bradham added another sack to his resume. The Bills defense caused trouble for Brady as the Bills recorded 5 interceptions on the day, 2 of which were from linebacker Zaviar Gooden.

It was yet another strong performance from the Bills who now sit at 2-0 and take on division rivals in the Dolphins next week.

Surpise, Surprise, Surprise.

Perhaps a surprise to everyone involved with NFL, from players, coaches, owners to you reading this. The Bills have managed to remain undefeated after defeating the Dolphins in a close encounter that ended with a score of 27-20.

The Dolphins looked poised to win this game, certainly on paper at least. The phins' defensive front is almost unrivaled, especially in this division its as good as it gets. Lead by Cameron Wake, Ndamukong Suh, Oliver Vernon and Derrick Shelby. The Bills offensive line was in for a wake up call, but to everyone's surprise the oline held strong for a majority of the game only allowing two sacks on the day.

It was really the Bills defense that caused some issues in the backfield, they too recorded two sacks on the day but also recorded six tackles for a loss as well to help stop the Dolphins rushing attack. This certainly caused troubles for the Dolphins who ultimately became a one dimensional team.

At the end of the day the game could have gone either way as both quarterbacks threw late picks to help seal the deal but luckily for Tyrod Taylor, his defensive teammate Jeromy Miles, came up with a 40 yard pick six to seal the game for the Bills.

Bills Player Stats:

Passing:

The passing game looked strong early on but got messy quick. Tyrod undoubtedly had his worst game thus far on the season as he recorded a QB rating of just 74.3 as he threw for 224 yards, 2 touchdowns, 4 interceptions on 13 completions off of 24 attempts.

Rushing:

Luckily for the Bills, LeSean McCoy took charge of this game as he cracked the century mark again, he carried the ball 11 times for 108 yards.

Receiving:

The receiving group had a quite day as a whole outside of Marquise Goodwin who managed to haul in 2 receptions for 91 yards and a score.

Defense:

The Bills defense was lead by safety Jason McCourty who flew around the field to record 7 tackles on the day along with teammates  Zaviar Gooden, Nigel Bradham and Jeromy Miles who all put up 5 or more tackles. Nigel Bradham once again introduced himself to the runningback as he recorded two tackles for a loss. Both Jerry Hughes and new recruit Will Smith recorded a sack on the day. Jason McCourty and Zaviar Gooden once again added a pick to their tally but it was Jeromy Miles' interception for a touchdown that won us the game!

Join us in week 4 as the Bills take on the Giants.
