I figure since we are kind of at a lull and people may want to talk about their plans for their new team or recap last year that this would be a good idea to give people the opportunity to talk about their old team a little bit plus new teams and what their plans are. The Buffalo Bills The HaW16 Bills look a lot different on paper but really, not much is changing. Coach Keller is returning after a very successful run in HaW15. In 7 seasons the Bills reached the post season in all but season 7. Under the direction of Coach Keller the Bills built around their star studded defensive front, finishing each season as one of the best defenses if not the the #1 defense statistically in scoring, yardage, sacks, turnovers you name it. Over the course of the 7 year cycle you'd be hard pressed to find a better defense than the one ran by Coach Keller and a lot of that can be contributed to the talent he had there both to start with and the talent that was added over time and developed. Offense was a different story... on offense it was always..... just enough. Until it wasn't. In high scoring playoff games the Bills continually found themselves overmatched leaving to their only Superbowl winning season in Season 4 when rival Patriots were without their star Quarterback. There were bright spots like the development of EJ Manuel and Sammy Watkins. Bryce Brown's emergence for awhile. Lets not forget the Bills offense won games by staying on the field, converting first downs, chewing clock, and keeping the defense rested. BUT with the additions made this offseason however, perhaps the Bills have the firepower now to put up serious points too. Lets recap some of the great talent that was scouted, drafted and developed by Coach Keller during his tenure. ROLB Bobby Cameron Spoiler HB Bret Sutton Spoiler WR LaDarius Farris Spoiler RE Rahmon Pope Spoiler Lets talk more generally position by position about what Coach K's plans might be QB - Ej Manuel will be given a shot but we may bring QB Brandon Cobb along to the competition as well. Don't rule out the option of trading for an established QB either since this roster is loaded to win sooner rather than later. FB - Jerome Felton paving the way for LeSean? Lock it up. HB - We may decide to carry 4 backs with all the talent here. LeSean is unquestionably the star but we like Karlos Williams and Bret Sutton will be hard to pass up as far as adding him to the mix. I will say this though, LeSean's contract is going to be a problem. We don't like paying RB's that kind of money. WR - Sammy is a star. We will work with him to regain his deep threat status if possible because we believe in speed at the WR position. We don't want people to be able to load up the box against us so expect us to put a premium on it. If that means keeping Marquise Goodwin and Percy Harvin around long term, so be it. Robert Woods is the question here - he's average in every way but he's reliable which is more than you can say about the other players on the roster. Expect us to always be looking at WR's to see what we can dig up. TE - Clay is getting paid too much. We like his skill set a lot but boy is that contract going to make things difficult for us long term. Expect Chris Gragg to stick on the roster as well with his athleticism. He'll be extremely raw again but we really liked how he developed last year. LT - Cordy Glenn will hold down this spot all cycle barring something catastrophic. LG - Richie Incognito will be an upgrade from what we started with last year but is a stop gap player at best. This will be a big need day 1. C - Eric Wood is solid at the pivot. Lacks strength which is a downside but consistent up front for us. RG - Rookie John Miller is already penciled in here so it will be interesting to see how he comes in. We hope he's the long term answer. RT - Again another question mark. Seantrel Henderson will compete with Cyrus Kouandjio and all reports are that Kouandjio is up to the task. We'll see. If not this is a massive need. The question for defense will be the viability of the 3-4 vs the 4-3. The Bills have personnel to run either but schematically we have to play around with it a bit to see how we feel. I have to believe we'll be hard pressed to go with the 3-4 but we shall see so this break down is assuming 4-3. DE - Mario Williams contract is nutso. Don't expect him to stick in Buffalo for long. Jerry Hughes is the underrated guy we will be more concerned with. He has the type of skills we want to hold onto but again that contract could be scary. We'll see. Expect this to be another position the Bills target early and often. Manny Lawson provides additional depth here in the short term. DT - Marcel and Kyle formed probably the top DT duo last cycle and will look to do more of the same. Both all stars, both great against the run or pass. The question is what's behind them? Not much and that is scary. OLB - Nigel Bradham and ???. Huge question mark here which makes you pretty keen on bringing back Bobby Cameron but that will be tough to do with other players of more value beckoning. This is definitely a spot to keep an eye on. MLB - No more Kiko Alonso so what happens here? Preston Brown was great as a rookie but can he be the guy long term? I really don't know. CB - Finally another position of depth. Leodis McKelvin may somehow find himself to be a cap casualty early after 2016 but the spot opposite Stephon Gilmore is in good hands with a healthy competition between Nickell Robey, Ron Brooks and rookie Ronald Darby who is both young and very quick. Corey Graham can step in from S in a pinch as well, the Bills are in good hands here. S - Aaron Williams mans one spot and likely Corey Graham will handle the other in the short term. Can Duke Williams be brought along again to make an impact? If not the other safety spot will have a high priority on finding some young talent. K/P - No idea whats going to happen at Punter but you can bet Dan Carpenter will be holding it down for quite awhile as he is one of the best in the business. Onward to HaW16. It can't get here fast enough!
