I’ve Got Bills On The Brain
No, not like utility bills, the Buffalo Bills!! I don’t know if it’s the New Era Bills cap I just bought or the new Stevie Johnson Nike jersey I picked up but I got a fever… Bills fever! It’s the Bills fault I feel like this.
The NFL draft was a little over a week ago and the Bills made some great picks and do I even have to mention the free agent signings? The signings that the Bills have made this offseason have been uncharacteristic of the organization, I cannot remember moves like this being made in my lifetime. The Bills went out and got the top top defensive free agent in the NFL, Mario Williams. It’s still hard to believe! The Bills also re-signed Stevie Johnson who has become a number one wide receiver for our team and a huge advocate for Buffalo. Also the Bills signed another defensive pass rusher in Mark Anderson from the New England Patriots. Hopefully our defense will now be a sack machine with the additions! Look out Tom Brady, we’re coming for you!!
The NFL Draft is a sore subject with many fans due to the fact that during the 2000′s era under GM Tom Donahoe the Bills had real bad drafts filled with numerous busts leaving fans wondering what could’ve been. The picks made in the 2012 draft by currentGM Buddy Nix and the Bills look to be promising including Stephon Gilmore, Cordy Glenn & TJ Graham. Other first round picks by Nix also seem to be working out well including Marcell Dareus and CJ Spiller. The draft is always a crapshoot, but research is key. Time will tell how everyone works out long term.
There is alot to be excited about as we approach the 2012 football season, things are finally starting to look up for our team. No question about it, expectations for the team this year are high. Will this be the year that the playoff draught ends? If I were a betting man I would say, YES! I am not a betting man and I still say, YES!
