It’s time once again for my annual what-crazy-thing-have-the-Buffalo-Bills-done-now offseason post. But first, the good news: they made Kathryn Smith the first female full-time coach in NFL history. That is pretty cool–I meant to blog about it at the time, but was too busy. When I heard the news, it was the proudest I’ve been to call myself a Bills fan since we beat New England 31-0 in 2003.
Being Buffalo Bills fans, we half-expect all positives to be immediately negated by something horrible, and sure enough, the running back they stupidly traded for last year is now being investigated for getting into a fight at a nightclub. So it goes.
That aside, what should the Bills do this offseason? My answer: get defensive linemen. Lots of them. The Broncos and Giants have shown that this is the blueprint for winning Super Bowls, even when you have absolutely nothing else going for you. It is especially effective against the evil Patriots.
“But we already have good defensive linemen!” you cry. I know. Doesn’t matter. Get more, because you know the ones we have will get hurt/arrested/suspended/demand to be paid more or be traded. I’ve been a Bills fan long enough to know that you can’t just do a few things right and hope we get the good breaks.
