Grueling Truth

● By Samuel Teets
Last season, Josh Allen, Sean McDermott, and the Buffalo Bills were on the cusp of overtaking the Kansas City Chiefs as the superpower in the AFC until everything went horribly wrong. The Chiefs manhandled Buffalo in the Conference Championship the way a varsity squad boosts its self-esteem by scrimmaging freshmen. McDermott can’t overcome Kansas City through the draft, but he can continue closing the already shrinking gap. Buffalo already retained most of its key starters and role players from 2020. The Bills seem primed for another deep playoff push, assuming Allen’s production remains steady. However, general manager Brandon Beane and McDermott could reward star coordinators Brian Daboll and Leslie Frazier with new starters and depth pieces at cornerback, defensive end, running back, and wide receiver.
