Prominent NFL “pundits” have already labeled the Buffalo Bills as the AFC East’s next big thing. Have they not already learned their lesson?

Robby Sabo

So you’ve decided to predict the AFC East in life after Tom Brady. You’ve decided to go all-in on the Buffalo Bills. Congratulations. You’ve taken the first step in doubling-down on your 2019 Cleveland Browns prediction.

The glitz, the glamour… it’s all part of a predictable cycle that occurs in the NFL most offseasons: the team who wins the offseason headlines usually disappoints the following year.

Already, the Bills are the darlings of the AFC East only a few moments after Brady bolted for Tampa. Most of the predictions are in line with last year’s result, 10-6. But some have the team winning 11 or even 12 games. WGR’s Howard Simon has them winning 12 in 2020. The Sporting News is going with an 11-win Bills squad. ESPN also went with 12 wins.

Folks have lost their minds. I understand the world is in rough shape at the moment, but there’s no reason to compound the issue with crazy predictions that up the ante.

To make the claim the Bills are ready for a complete bust of a season would be silly. The defense is nasty and the offensive line should be good again. Those two things alone will keep a team in the mix in spite of anything else. But the good folks who label themselves NFL “pundits” need to slow their roll on this freight train.

The spicy acquisitions oftentimes disappoint

Of course, the Bills’ biggest acquisition of the offseason was Stefon Diggs. Buffalo sent its 2020 first-round pick (22nd overall), as well as a 2020 fifth-round pick, a 2020 sixth-round pick and a fourth-round pick in the 2021 NFL draft for a seventh-round pick in 2020 and Diggs’ services.

Nobody can question Diggs’ overall talent. He’s a solid NFL wide receiver. Perhaps a tad overrated from a name-value standpoint, the fifth-round choice in 2015 has done well for himself.

The Minnesota Vikings also couldn’t wait to rid themselves of his services.

Too right Robby. Diggs could easily be classified as an overrated diva, which is almost the opposite of Allen. I think Allen is poor-man’s Cam Newton. Maybe he will improve his accuracy and get it to Diggs on plays that McDermott and co design to make it easy. I think we can win the division this year as our defense will be nasty too and our offense could be the surprise packet of the NFL (a few things need to happen for this to occur I admit)
