The Buffalo Bills continue with their OTA practices at the facility at One Bills Drive this week and you can tell that there is something different in the air this year. It’s almost a swagger that if things go the way they should this could be a great year for football in western New York.
The offense of the Bills this year will finally get a full offseason of tape review by coaches, which leads to a full off season to correct what went wrong in the second half of last season. The Bills suffered through one of the worse losing streaks in their history last year which could have had lasting effects on their season ticket base. The team’s season ticket sales have been in decline the last few years because of the team’s inability to be competitive over the last ten years. But this year GM Buddy Nix promised the Bills were going to do whatever it would take to improve their team, and with that promise the Bills have signed two of the top pass rushers in free agency this year in Mario Williams, and Mark Anderson.
The Bills also resigned all of their coveted veterans a list that includes Stevie Johnson, Bryan Scott, and Scott Chandler. Then the Bills brass made another move and signed quarterback Vince Young who I believe has come to reach the true part of his potential, which I believe is to lead a team into battle for a championship. Many believe the story that he was brought in to be a back up but I have faith that this young man has come full circle and when the opportunity presents itself the champion in him will take over.
Yes I am predicting that before all is said and done Vince Young will be the Quarterback leading this team!!!!
