Bills Ranked 28th Overall in League

National commentators rank the Bills 28th overall in the NFL. They cite reason for optimism with Josh Allen returning to the lineup. Despite adversity the Bills have managed to win 3 games. A few additional victories may be possible in the home stretch. THE BILLS ARE IN REBUILDING MODE. GENERAL MANAGER BRANDON BEANE HAS CLEANED UP THE SALARY CAP. THERE SHOULD BE 83 MILLION AVAILABLE NEXT YEAR. LOOKING AHEAD TO BETTER DAYS, WE ARE HOPEFUL AS 1BUFFALO.

Coach McDermott announced yesterday that Josh Allen will start against Jacksonville. The rookie sensation has missed 4 games and the bye week due to his elbow injury. He has been cleared for action and will take the field on Sunday. McDERMOTT IS STAKING HIS CAREER ON ALLENS DEVELOPMENT. THE ENTIRE SEASON HAS EVOLVED INTO A TRAINING PERIOD FOR THE FRANCHISE QUARTERBACK. DESPITE STANDOUT PLAY BY MATT BARKLEY VERSUS THE JETS, THE COACH IS STAYING WITH HIS PLAY BOOK FOR ALLEN. WITH THE FUTURE OF THE TEAM HANGING IN THE BALANCE, WE HEDGE OUR BETS AS 1BUFFALO.

The Bills are looking for redemption in the home stretch. They have 6 remaining games to turn things around. Coach McDermott has named Josh Allen starter provided he is healthy. Matt Barkley is a viable backup should Allen falter. ALL EYES WILL BE ON THE REVAMPED OFFENSE. THE SQUAD STUMBLED BADLY IN THE FIRST HALF OF THE YEAR. PLAYERS AND COACHES WILL BE VYING TO KEEP THEIR JOBS. THEY MUST PERFORM BETTER OR WILL LIKELY BE GONE AT SEASONS END. WATCHING INTENTLY FROM THE SIDELINES, THE FAITHFUL REMAIN 1BUFFALO.

Nathan Peterman worked out with the Lions yesterday. The surprise move comes in the wake of his release by the Bills after throwing 7 interceptions this year. Detroit has an established QB corps with Matt Cassel as backup to Matthew Stafford with Jake Rudock on the practice squad. THE LIONS ARE LOOKING FOR EXPERIENCED DEPTH UNDER CENTER. PETERMAN HAD A STANDOUT COLLEGE CAREER AT PITT BEFORE FALTERING IN THE PROS. HAVING LEARNED TO EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED IN THE NFL, WE FOLLOW WITH INTEREST AS 1BUFFALO.

As the Bills head into the home stretch it is time to take stock. 2018 is a rebuilding year for the team at virtually every position. The dilemma at quarterback is not entirely Coach McDermotts fault. He doubtless took direction from the Pegulas to trade Tyrod Taylor for financial reasons. He and general manager Beane erred seriously in releasing AJ McCarron after spending the entire preseason here. At last they have dealt for a viable backup in Matt Barkley who can be substituted for rookie Josh Allen. McDERMOTT AND BEANE ARE UNDER PRESSURE TO FIELD COMPETITIVE PLAY IN THE LAST 6 GAMES. A REPEAT OF THE FIRST HALF DEBACLE COULD SPELL THE END OF THEIR REGIME. JUST LAST YEAR THEY PRODUCED A PLAYOFF CONTENDER. DISMAYED BY THE MISCUES AGAIN ENVELOPING ONE BILLS DRIVE, WE SHAKE OUR HEADS AS 1BUFFALO.

Coach Sean McDermott should reconsider and start Matt Barkley against the Jaguars. The announcement was made on Monday that Josh Allen will start provided he is healthy. The Bills at long last hit their stride in the Jets game with Barkley as QB. He fired up the offense and turned in the first convincing win of the season. THE COACHING STAFF IS EAGER TO GIVE ALLEN AS MUCH PLAYING TIME AS POSSIBLE. HIS PERFORMANCE IN 5 GAMES WAS UNEVEN, GOING 2 – 3. BARKLEY PROVED HIMSELF AND DESERVES THE STARTING NOD. LOOKING FOR McDERMOTT TO SHIFT GEARS AND GO WITH THE EXPERIENCED VETERAN, WE COME TOGETHER AS 1BUFFALO.

The Bills have signed wide receiver Deonte Thompson. He rejoins the team after spending 10 weeks with the Cowboys. Thompson was formerly a standout WR with the Bills in 2017 with 27 catches for 430 yards. He played college ball at Florida. THOMPSONS SIGNING ADDS DEPTH AND EXPERIENCE TO THE RECEIVER CORPS. THE BILLS HAVE NOW FILLED 1 OF 2 ROSTER VACANCIES. LOOKING FOR ANOTHER INSPIRED PERSONNEL MOVE, WE CIRCLE THE WAGONS AS 1BUFFALO.

The Bills have waived wide receiver Terrell Pryor. He was released after spending less than 2 weeks with the team. Pryor had 2 receptions in the Bears game and none against his former team, the Jets. In other developments cornerback Denzel Rice was signed to the practice squad. THE BILLS NOW HAVE 2 OPENINGS ON THEIR ROSTER FOLLOWING THE DEPARTURE OF PETERMAN AND PRYOR. THE REVOLVING DOOR AT ONE BILLS DRIVE CONTINUES. EXPECTING LATE SEASON SIGNINGS AS BRANDON BEANE WHEELS AND DEALS, WE AWAIT THE NEXT INSTALLMENT AS 1BUFFALO.

The Bills have released quarterback Nathan Peterman. Drafted in the fifth round in 2017, he played in 8 games and started 4. Over the past 2 seasons he threw for 3 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. THE BILLS ARE MOVING ON FROM THEIR FAILED BACKUP QB. THE SPECTACULAR PERFORMANCE OF MATT BARKLEY AGAINST THE JETS SEALED THE DEAL. HE LED THE TEAM TO A CONVINCING VICTORY AND RE-ENERGIZED THE SQUAD. COACH McDERMOTT ANNOUNCED YESTERDAY THAT JOSH ALLEN WILL START AGAINST THE JAGUARS PROVIDED HE IS HEALTHY. THE EXPERIENCED BARKLEY WILL MENTOR ALLEN THE ROOKIE. THE ROLLER COASTER RIDE AT BILLS QUARTERBACK CONTINUES. HOLDING OUR HATS AS THE DRAMA UNFOLDS, WE ARE GALVANIZED AS 1BUFFALO.

The Bills upset the Jets 41 – 10, ending a 4 game losing streak. Matt Barkley turned in a convincing performance as quarterback. On the day he was 15 of 25 for 232 yards, 2 touchdowns, and no interceptions. He earned what should be the starting job when the team returns from the bye week to meet Jacksonville. LeSean McCoy had his best game of the season, rushing for 113 yards and 2 touchdowns. The defense played well, effectively shutting down Josh McCown for most of the afternoon. THE BILLS AT LONG LAST SHOWED LIFE ON OFFENSE. BARKLEY IS THE MAN OF THE HOUR. HE WAS POISED, CONFIDENT, AND A COMMANDING PRESENCE. TRUSTING THAT THE BILLS HAVE FOUND THEIR STARTING QB, WE ARE RELIEVED AND ENCOURAGED AS 1BUFFALO.
