On this episode of Talking Buffalo, the second of a two-part series, Patrick Moran examines the state of the Buffalo Bills with this one being the “happy version”, a good vibes only list of things about the team to excite fans as they start move onward towards the 2024 season.
Unlike the doom and gloom of yesterday’s episode, today the focus is on good things and that starts with the franchise quarterback. Patrick talks about how despite a midseason offensive coordinator change and declining production from his top wideout, Josh Allen continued to play at a level very few quarterbacks in the NFL are capable of playing at. In fact, Josh was quite realistically two more Bills team wins/non choke jobs away from likely winning the 2023 NFL MVP that instead went to Lamar Jackson.
Part of Allen’s and the offensive turnaround in general during the back half of the season is attributed to extremely promising play from rookie tight end Dalton Kincaid, wide receiver Khalil Shakir and running back James Cook. Patrick discusses their importance and what a luxury it is to have all three for multiple years under contract at ridiculously affordable rates (less than a $6 million 2024 cap hit from all three combined).
Among other topics discussed is the borderline stunning development of Terrell Bernard nearly instantly becoming a star middle linebacker, the best offensive line of the Brandon Beane/Sean McDermott regime, McDermott becoming far more aggressive as the season wore on and excitement about the Bills having two rising young coordinators in Joe Brady and Bobby Babich. That and plenty more–no pissing in your Cheerios today, Bills fans!
