As training camp approaches, the silence around the Buffalo Bills is neither just a welcome note nor a lack of sound. Last season was anything but quiet for head coach Sean McDermott and his team.
The emotional stress placed on Buffalo Bills players outside of football in 2022 was unprecedented. Bills’ beloved city was devastated by a mass murder at a Tops supermarket in May. The horrific event shook the team to the core. Then there was the pain of seeing teammate Damar Hamlin come back alive in early December. After that, the home game moved to Detroit because of the snow, albeit to a much lesser extent and stressfully.
Despite all this, the Buffalo Bills were expected to overthrow Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs in January. We all know that didn’t happen. To what extent have all these factors played a role for the Bills? The New York Jets can enjoy all the hustle and bustle this year.
With Aaron Rodgers joining the Jets, expectations have shifted in the AFC East. That’s not bad for the Buffalo Bills. McDermott and general manager Brandon Beane navigated a minefield of off-field and on-field problems last season. In addition to the aforementioned events, the Bills lost coveted free-agent star Von Miller in Week 11 for the rest of the season. This year’s talented Bills roster should hopefully have fewer distractions so they can regroup and refocus on their Super Bowl quest. Buffalo is looking forward to keeping Rodgers in the spotlight of the NFL media this summer.
With the Jets and Dolphins on the rise in 2023, it’s sure to be a tougher road for the Bills. But it also means that both teams should take their eyes off the “Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs” melodrama for a moment. A quieter season with fewer distractions could give Buffalo a smooth run to Super Bowl III next February.
