Bills Coming off Bye Week with a lot of Questions
The Buffalo Bills bye week is concluding with several questions like will General Manager Brandon Beane make some moves before the Trade Deadline of November 2nd, 2021?
The Bills could use a veteran tight end to replace Dawson Knox who suffered a fractured hand injured in the loss to Tennessee Titans. The Bills also need a hard-hitting middle linebacker to meet opposing running backs at the line of scrimmage. It’s a serious problem on defense that your starting middle linebacker can only make plays down the field. Bills middle linebacker Tremaine Edmunds reminds of Miami Dolphin legend diary linebacker Zach Thomas, who led the NFL in tackles, but a majority of his tackles were well down field. Tremaine Edmunds is an outstanding athlete, who should be moved to outside linebacker position covering tight ends and running backs down field on passing plays along with supporting the defensive line on running plays.
I see Bills Safety Jordan Poyer making too many tackles instead of our linebackers. The Bills really do need a veteran tight end on offensive side of the ball. Zack Ernst has already been traded and cashing in with a TD catch for the Arizona Cardinals last Sunday. It’s up to General Manager Brandon Beane and Head Coach Sean McDermott to make a move before the deadline.
I also wonder if teams are calling about picking up Bills back up QB Mitch Trubisky for possibly a third or fourth round draft pick for next season. I’m sure the phones are ringing at one Bills drive. The biggest mistake made by them was holding on to Jerry Hughes and Mario Addison for way too long. They both should have been released after last season. That’s what happens when you get too close to certain players and why New England Head Coach Bill Belichick is the master of getting rid of over the hill players before their time is up and acquiring quality talent in return.
The Bills face Miami Dolphins on Sunday and Head Coach Brian Flores, talking about his team’s six game losing streak said, “games coming down to a field goal, one or two plays could have turned things around, and we have to do more offensively, defensively, and with Special Teams to turn things around. We need to find different things to help these guys finish games out.”
I see the Bills squishing the fish one more time 31 – 10 with defense playing another aggressive game causing Tua Tagovailoa to turn the ball over.
