A Franchise in Crisis

The Bills are a franchise in crisis 2 weeks into the regular season.  The gamble to start a rookie quarterback is only part of the problem.  The offensive line is porous and not protecting the signal caller.  Despite costly offseason signings the defense is shutting down, having allowed 75 points in the first 2 games.  THE SEASON IS RAPIDLY EVOLVING INTO A REBUILDING YEAR.  THE BILLS FACE 4 CHALLENGING ROAD GAMES IN THE NEXT 5 WEEKS.  MANY HAVE ALREADY WRITTEN OFF THE PLAYOFFS.  BEWILDERED BY THE STRATEGIC BLUNDERS THAT GAVE RISE TO THIS DEBACLE, WE LOOK FOR ANSWERS AS 1BUFFALO.

Josh Allen showed promise in the Bills 31 – 20 loss to the Chargers.  He had 245 passing yards and 2 touchdowns on the day.  The offensive line let down, allowing 5 sacks on Allen.  The defense played so miserably in the first half that Sean McDermott took over calling plays for defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier.  Cornerback Vontae Davis was so discouraged that he retired at halftime and quit the organization.  THE BILLS CLEARLY ARE IN TROUBLE AFTER 2 GAMES.  THEY FACE CHALLENGING ROAD TRIPS TO MINNESOTA AND GREEN BAY.  THE SEASON IS TURNING INTO A TRAINING GROUND FOR JOSH ALLEN.  HOPING BEYOND HOPE FOR A TURN AROUND, WE SHOW SUPPORT FOR THE YOUNG QUARTERBACK AS 1BUFFALO.

The Bills are looking to improve from last weeks debacle when they take on the Chargers today.  The home opener is sold out.  Anticipation is running high with Josh Allen as starting quarterback.  ALLEN HAS EXCEPTIONAL MATURITY AND POISE FOR A ROOKIE.  HE LIKELY WILL TURN IN A CREDIBLE PERFORMANCE.  ALTHOUGH THE BILLS ARE UNDERDOGS THE GAME SHOULD BE COMPETITIVE.  LOOKING FOR A GOOD AFTERNOON OF FOOTBALL WE AWAIT KICKOFF AS 1BUFFALO.

Erie County Sheriffs will curb table slamming at Bills home games.  They will be out in force to limit the tradition at tailgating for the home opener versus the Chargers.  Violators will be subject to ejection and criminal charges.  TABLE SLAMMING HAS BEEN A KEY ELEMENT OF THE EXUBERANT FESTIVITIES OF BILLS FANS.  NATIONAL MEDIA ATTENTION HAS FOCUSED ON THE UNIQUE PRACTICE.  CELEBRATING THE SPIRIT OF BILLS LOYALISTS EVERYWHERE, WE CIRCLE THE TABLES AS 1BUFFALO.

All eyes will be on Josh Allen as he takes the field as starter versus the Chargers.  The rookie is being mobilized in the wake of Nathan Petermans disasterous performance against the Ravens.  The question is whether the struggling offensive line will be able to protect him.  COACH McDERMOTT AND BRANDON BEANE HAVE BUNGLED THE QUARTERBACK DECISION.  TYROD TAYLOR WAS TRADED LARGELY FOR MONETARY CONSIDERATIONS AND AJ McCARRON SHOULD HAVE BEEN RETAINED TO PROVIDE BACKUP EXPERIENCE.  SHAKING OUR HEADS AT THE STRATEGIC INEPTITUDE, WE LOOK FOR ANSWERS AS 1BUFFALO.

Bills co-owner Kim Pegula said the stadium decision will be made after the November election.  Speaking in an interview to the Associated Press, she indicated she does not want to politicize the process.  She and her husband Terry will determine whether to proceed with a new venue or renovate New Era field.  THE ARENA WILL BE A SOURCE OF PRIDE AND PRESTIGE.  IT WILL BE THE FOCAL POINT OF REGIONAL RENEWAL.  GRATEFUL TO THE PEGULAS FOR THEIR VISION AND LEADERSHIP, WE LOCK ARMS AS 1BUFFALO.

Members of the Bills honored local first responders yesterday on September 11th.  5 teammates went to a local firehouse to pay tribute to them and their fallen comrades.  They served dinner and shared fellowship with police and firemen.  THE BILLS ORGANIZATION STRONGLY BELIEVES IN COMMUNITY OUTREACH.  WHILE FALTERING ON THE FIELD, THE FRANCHISE IS COMMITTED TO WESTERN NEW YORK.  GRATEFUL FOR THIS GESTURE AND THE SERVICE OF THOSE RECOGNIZED, WE STAND SHOULDER TO SHOULDER AS 1BUFFALO.

The Bills have signed defensive end Nate Orchard to a one year contract.  The move comes in the wake of the release of Adolphus Washington.  Orchard was waived by Cleveland in the final roster cut.  HIS SIGNING UNDERSCORES THE DESPERATION OF THE BILLS COACHES.  THE DEFENSE COMPLETELY LET DOWN IN THE SEASON OPENER VERSUS THE RAVENS, ALLOWING 47 POINTS.  HOPING THAT ORCHARD BRINGS MUCH NEEDED EXPERIENCE TO THE LINE, WE AWAIT RESULTS AS 1BUFFALO.

The Bills were thoroughly trounced by the Ravens 47 – 3 in the season opener.  It was the second worst loss in team history.  Nathan Petermans debut as starter was embarassing.  He failed to put up a single first down in the first half.  He was benched in the third quarter by Josh Allen who led the only scoring drive that resulted in a field goal.  IT IS PANIC TIME AT ONE BILLS DRIVE.  THE FOLLY OF TRADING TAYLOR AND McCARRON IS EVIDENT.  THERE WAS NO OFFENSE OR DEFENSE.  CLEARLY COACH McDERMOTT AND BRANDON BEANES JOBS ARE ON THE LINE.  SHAKEN BUT LOOKING FOR A TURNAROUND,  WE STRUGGLE TO REMAIN 1BUFFALO.

The Bills open the regular season today when they take on the Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium.  Nathan Peterman debuts as starter after a solid camp and preseason.  He will be tested behind the struggling offensive line.  BALTIMORE WILL LOOK TO CONTAIN LESEAN McCOY, EMBROILED IN PERSONAL CONTROVERSY.  COACH McDERMOTT AND GENERAL MANAGER BEANE HAVE STAKED THEIR FUTURES ON THE TRADES OF TAYLOR AND McCARRON.  EXCITED THAT OPENING DAY HAS ARRIVED, WE AWAIT KICKOFF AS 1BUFFALO.
