Team Report Card: Bills Need to D-Up

The Bills seem to have a lot of great players but can't figure out a way to turn those pieces into a winning team.  With a defense that can't stop the run, they will need to draft and sign some big guys to pack the defensive front.


Buffalo Bills

2012 Record: 6-10


Grade: C-


The Good:

  • - RB C.J. Spiller is the man! He had over 1,600 total purpose yards!
  • - WR Steve Johnson keeps progressing. He had over 1,000 yards receiving.
  • - Mario Williams lead the team with 10 ½ sacks.


The Bad:

  • - After starting 3-3, they went 3-7 the rest of the way.
    • - They have the 31st rated rush defense.
  • - The defense gave up the 7th most points in the league.


The Future:

  • - First Draft Position #8: DE Dion Jordan or OLB Jarvis Jones
  • - Free Agent Targets: TE Jared Cook and DB Sean Smith  
  • - Trade: The Bills overpaid for DE Mario Williams, so they should look to move him in order to free up space to use on younger players.
