So when I saw who our opponents were going to be this year....I pretty much called this season a wash. I know I know...negative mentality. 


So im trying to put a positive spin on it. What would I like to see from this team realistically as it goes on.


I like the idea of McDermott. So id like to see some clean coaching for once. Good challenges...good use of down and distance. Proper timeout usage. 


Offensively....just improve the pass game. Run game is solid. We know we are gonna succeed on the run. We do know running the ball so much makes each throw that much more important. So making the right throw and calling the right pass play is big. Id like to see Tyrod improve on his field vision. 


I think if we grab a WR early in the draft....Id like to see Tyrod just toss some balls to the WR and trust them.


Defensively....stay healthy and see the young guys grow. Its gonna be a new system again....so we gotta see our guys adapt to it quick. I wonder who is going to make a big impact this year.


Overall...Stay competitive....Id love to see a few big wins. Beating some of these playoff teams would be nice. 


If we ended the season a better team than the one we started...thats all I could ask for. 


Anything in particular you guys wanna see this year?

Better defense.  And TT making more use of the entire field.

Better tackling. Those Dolphins and Steelers games were particularly hard to watch for me

If I had to pick one thing this would be it.  If he succeeds it would be huge.  If not, then we'll know.

A Qb drafted in the first or second round. I don`t really care about the ,this is not a good Qb class. I`d also like a olb prospect in the first or second round.

I want to see 11 men on the field each and every play.

I want to see the team set and ready to play ball prior to the snap instead of looking like they're lost and frantically waving to each other.

I want to see crisp tackling, and ending of the play rather than lamely chasing a ball carrier down the field with the defenders head on a swivel trying to figure out who SHOULD have been covering him.

I want to see Taylor use the pocket a little bit more and not be so quick to bail ... I understand his #1 strength is in his legs, but pass protection will improve if his linemen know where he is going to be.

I want to see Sammy and Shady healthy for the lions share of the snaps.

I want to see the right side of the O-line solidified.

I want to see a little more balance between our run game and our passing game.

I would love to see Cardale Jones make huge strides in becoming the future of this franchise. I honestly believe he is a diamond in the rough.

Steady improvement and composure.


Minimal stupid 15 yard and procedural penalties.


Making sure the right # of men are on the field most of the season.


The D picking up odd formations and not getting taken to the cleaners.

Better handling of 2 minute drills and time outs and reviews.

I want the D to finish in the top 5 like it should, along with most things listed above. It's a tough schedule & with the New coaching staff, I will consider anything more than 5 or 6 wins a success with the playoffs expected in 2018.
Go Bills!!!!!

Equipping Tyrod with a series of plays instead of him standing there looking at the sideline as 15 seconds tick off.

For this entire organization to handle itself well enough to earn everyone's respect. The fans at least deserve that.

This is a great topic, kudos to the OP. Inviting other people's opinions while sharing you own = solid. 


Regardless of which side of the ball show more consistency I would like to see both of them raise their level of play when the game is on the line. No more long drives at the end of the game for the D, no more 3 and outs when we need to sustain drives. When I see this from a Bills team I will believe we have a chance at turning things around. The best part of the Bills teams of the 90s wasn't the K0Gun offense or the sick linebackers wearing spiderman tights, it was the team's resiliency. We could be down by a ton in the fourth and I would never think we were out of it. We could lose a Super Bowl and I would still be confident the team wasn't going to fall apart the next year.

Good topic.

IMO the most important thing that could happen is that McD shows he's a great coaching hire. That would mean we have well prepared, disciplined, intense, team and he makes good adjustments and in game decisions.

If we have that, then we have hope for a long and successful future, even if the talent isn't quite there yet.

For me to look like a professional organization.  It's been a dysfunctional clown show at OBD for too long now.
