Shaky Start for the Offense: Buffalo Bills Training Camp Observations, July 22

Tuesday, July 22nd, 2014

Tuesday’s training camp practice for the Buffalo Bills looked eerily similar to Monday’s practice, the only difference being the addition of pads. Some nice plays were made by a handful of players but on the whole, the Bills offense looked horribly out of sync.

While still very early in the whole training camp process, there were a few things I noticed over my two days at St. John Fisher College that should give Bills fans pause for concern. With U2′s classic song “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” as our theme this time, here are my observations from Tuesday’s practice.

During a few hours of extreme humidity at St. John Fisher College on Monday afternoon, I had the opportunity to take in the Buffalo Bills’ second practice of their 2014 training camp.

The team has many new faces and despite the injury to middle linebacker Kiko Alonso, defensive tackle Marcel Dareus’ off-field issues and Cordy Glenn’s mystery ailment, hope still springs eternal for the Bills’ embattled fan base.

Like the classic Clint Eastwood film, the theme of Monday’s training camp observations are The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

Buffalo Bills State of the Roster: Defense and Special Teams

The Buffalo Bills defense is currently in a state of flux as defensive coordinator Mike Pettine has left to become the head coach of the Cleveland Browns and subsequently, has pilfered three Bills assistant coaches from last year’s staff, one who had been hired by the Bills earlier this month (Jeff Hafley) and might be on the verge of hiring away defensive line coach Anthony Weaver.

The Bills reacted quickly and hired former Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz to replace Pettine. Though his staff isn’t completely solidified yet, it appears likely that Schwartz will bring his “Wide 9,” 4-3 based defense to Buffalo.

The good news for Schwartz is that he’s entering a kitchen with a well-stocked pantry. Buffalo’s defense was its stronger side of the ball last season, and with only one glaring exception, returns all of its key contributors who, for the most part, look to be solid fits for Schwartz’ scheme.

The Buffalo Bills were attempting to make a playoff push going into their Week 13 matchup with the Atlanta Falcons. Getting help from other AFC teams to keep them within reach of the conference’s sixth playoff speed, they had a chance to keep a playoff run alive with a win Sunday, but they did not.

Under the Radar: Unsung Heroes for the Buffalo Bills This Season

The story of the Buffalo Bills’ 2013 season has been about new beginnings: an entirely new coaching staff under the helm of coach Doug Marrone and a young team with many key rookies including quarterback EJ Manuel, wide receivers Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin and linebacker Kiko Alonso.

The majority of the buzz around Western New York and the entire NFL has focused on these young players or the Bills’ “big names” both positively (Mario Williams, Jairus Byrd, Kyle Williams) and negatively (C.J. Spiller).

While those players deserve the press they get, a few names have slipped under the radar and are having career seasons, all the while going relatively unheard of when compared to their teammates.
