I usually make some kind of quasi-official (read: half-assed) prediction of how the Buffalo Bills will do each season, so here it is, even though I’m not returning to blogging about each individual game. My new rule, as stated a week or so ago, is that I won’t watch any more Bills games until the team reaches four games over .500. If that takes them until the 2015 season, so be it. Watching what will almost certainly be bad football doesn’t strike me as a good use of my beloved autumn and winter weekend hours, so there they go.
But anyway: the Bills are going with a youth movement. They have a new rookie quarterback, whom they took in the first round this past year: EJ Manuel, who was off most scouts’ radar for some reason. From what I’ve read, I’m not sure why that is, but then, I’m not a scout. He seems to be an intelligent player who works hard and who played quite a bit in college. Works for me. We’ll see what happens. Other than that, the Bills pretty much stink everywhere else except running back. And maybe the offensive line.
It’s a year for youth, so I expect lumps a-plenty. My best guess for their final record is 4-12. Yippee. Go team, rah rah rah, if you can’t do it, the other team can!
