As if Gilmore is some great addition to bolster their chances. This just in, they would win just as many games in 2017 without SG as they would with him.

he is better than their 2nd cb in 16

The NFL Network does not have the Bills "as an AFCE contender." The article lists a team in everyone division for the sake of the article; nowhere does it assert that the Bills have a legitimate chance of taking the division from the Patriots.

 

It's literally in the article...listed as the top contender.....ahead of the fish and the Jets...

 

Top contender: Buffalo Bills

Before Dolphins fans go nuts, it was close. And it's March. And I still wanna see Ryan Tannehill take the next step. But I love that Buffalo retained Tyrod Taylor. He's a good quarterback who will get even better now that he's no longer a pawn in a corrosive game between the coach, GM and owner. New head coach Sean McDermott is a gem, a buttoned-up guy who's a true workaholic. He's just the kind of guy this organization needed: the antithesis of Rex Ryan. The defense will take a major step forward. And the penalties will go down.

There is a "top contender" listed for every division. That does not mean that the Bills are listed as a legitimate contender for the division title; it means that, for the purpose of an article at a slow point of the offseason, Schein is positioning the Bills ahead of the Jets and the Dolphins. You are conflating what the author means by "top contender." Either way; well done on falling for clickbait.

Why shouldn't they? A healthy Watkins, no O-line losses, and Rex is gone. If the defensive backfield can be improved in the draft, this is a 10 or 11 win team.
Getting rid of Rex is 2 or 3 win improvement by itself.
If Darby regresses further and the DB they draft can not start, it could be disaster.

I'm pretty excited. Sure, it could be another middlin' year - but I continue to feel good about McDermott. I think he's the X factor that gets us over the top.

Wow...someone pissed in your cheerios ? I fully understand that he's not claiming we'll take over the division....I am simply pointing out that he's putting us ahead of Miami and the Jets as the top contender besides NE.....and that is a good thing....

If it wasn't Gilmore they would sign someone else and win just as many games. Sam deal with CH last year.

Your thread title says "AFCE contender." The board is becoming increasingly filled with unnecessary, redundant, and often duplicate posts (there were three threads on Zach Brown on the front page this morning, for example). Given how few moderators there are and how overwhelmed they have been with the influx of new registrants, it's not too much to ask for posters to give some thought to and avoid hyperbole in their posts. Otherwise, the board will be largely unreadable. No one wants to sift through pages of unnecessary posts.

I didn't see any other thread about this particular article....Don't blame me for the repetitive threads....the article is putting the Bills in a positive light and I like that....I'm not looking for your approval buddy....if you don't like the thread, just ignore it.....

Bills Dolphins games this year should be insane. My only concern is will Bills have the lb core to not let the phins run for 400 yds again.

I doubt the Bills will win the AFC East but they should at least make the Final Four
