OUR FANS ARE SECOND TO NONE IN THE LEAGUE. DRAWING CLOSE TO FAMILY AND FRIENDS, WE OBSERVE THE HOLIDAY AS 1BUFFALO.
As snow falls on Western New York, optimism abounds over the Bills prospects. One month into the offseason the front office is working to re-sign veterans. General manager Brandon Beane may use the franchise tag to retain key players. STABILITY IS THE KEY WORD AT ONE BILLS DRIVE. WE ARE ONE OF THE VERY FEW TEAMS WHOSE HEAD COACH AND OFFENSIVE AND DEFENSIVE COORDINATORS HAVE BEEN ON BOARD FOR MORE THAN 2 YEARS. BEANE HAS SAID THAT AFTER OUR PLAYOFF APPEARANCE THE TEAM IS HUNGRY. HE VOWS WE WILL BE BACK. IN THE MIDST OF MIDWINTER DOLDRUMS, WE FEEL GOOD ABOUT THE FUTURE AS 1BUFFALO.
The Bills have reworked Star Lotulelei’s contract. The defensive tackle agreed to a reduction in compensation and salary cap. He will be paid his roster and workout bonuses in addition to a guaranteed salary of 4.5 million next season. The restructured contract is for 3 years. LOTULELEI’S FUTURE WITH THE TEAM HAD BEEN IN DOUBT. THE BILLS ALSO NEED TO RE-SIGN SHAQ LAWSON AND JORDAN PHILLIPS. HARRISON PHILLIP WILL LIKELY REMAIN IN THE LINE GIVEN HIS PROGRESS IN REHAB. SEEING THE WISDOM OF THESE MOVES, WE NOD APPROVINGLY AS 1BUFFALO.
Bills Nation is awaiting word on the Stadium Question. Pegula Sports & Entertainment has received the consultants report. The options are either to renovate New Era Field or construct a new arena. RETROFITTING THE EXISTING VENUE WOULD ALLOW FOR CONTINUED LARGE-SCALE TAILGATING, THE QUINTESSENTIAL BILLS GAME DAY EXPERIENCE. THAT WOULD NOT BE POSSIBLE FOR A NEW STADIUM DOWNTOWN DUE TO LACK OF LAND FOR PARKING. THE PEGULAS ARE CAREFULLY WEIGHING ALTERNATIVES. A DECISION IS EXPECTED SOON. ANXIOUS TO KNOW HOW IT WILL PLAY OUT, WE KEEP AN OPEN MIND AS 1BUFFALO.
With the offseason in full swing, the spotlight is on Josh Allen. Entering his third pro year, he has lived up to his promise. He is the long awaited franchise quarterback. ALLEN HAS GROWN AND MATURED. HE HAS A UNIQUE COMBINATION OF SIZE, ATHLETICISM, AND STRONG ARM. LOOKING FORWARD TO MANY WINNING SEASONS WITH JOSH UNDER CENTER, WE CLOSE RANKS AROUND HIM AS 1BUFFALO.
Attention focuses on the early post season report. In mid February we are about a month away from the start of free agency. The college draft will be held in late April.

COACH McDERMOTT AND AND GENERAL MANAGER BEANE HAVE PROVEN TO BE HORSE TRADERS WITH PERSONNEL MOVES. BIDING OUR TIME AS THE SNOW FLIES, WE EXPECT GREAT THINGS AS 1BUFFALO.
The Bills have added Jacques Cesaire to the coaching staff. He is the new assistant defensive line coach under Eric Washington. CESAIRE PLAYED 9 SEASONS FOR THE CHARGERS. HE MOST RECENTLY COACHED THE DEFENSIVE LINE AT THE UNIVERSITY OF SAN DIEGO. LOOKING FOR CONTRIBUTIONS FROM THE EXPERIENCED PRO, WE WELCOME HIM ON BOARD AS 1BUFFALO.

The Bills are raising ticket and parking prices. The price of tickets will increase 4.6%. The cost of parking will go up 10%. OUR PRICES WILL STILL BE AMONG THE LOWEST IN THE LEAGUE, SECOND ONLY TO THE BENGALS. NEW ERA FIELD HAS ONE OF THE LARGEST CAPACITIES AMONG NFL ARENAS SO PRICES ARE MODERATE TO KEEP IT FILLED. RECOGNIZING THE VALUE TO BILLS FANS, WE MAKE OUR PURCHASES AS 1BUFFALO.
