The Bills have had a rough go of it lately, which prompted owner Ralph Wilson to go back to the future and hire former Bills’ coach Marv Levy, now 80, as the club’s new G.M. Dick Jauron replaces the failed Mike Mularkey as the Bills’ coach.

This team possesses a plethora of problems, which includes an unenviable quarterback situation. Perennial backup signal caller Kelly Holcomb will get the start, while 2004 first round pick and underperformer J.P. Losman will try to regain his starting job. former Green Bay backup Craig Nall is also in the mix.

The best part of Buffalo’s offense last season was on punt and kick returns, where they excelled. However, the passing attack was ranked 29th in the NFL and the rushing game came in 20th. The Bills were 30th in Red Zone conversions.

A lot is riding on running back Willis McGahee, who rushed for over 1,200 yards while scoring 5 TDs. McGahee looked good at the start of the year, but his performance became less credible in the second half. Receiver Eric Moulds, the team’s star ball catcher, was traded to Houston, leaving Lee Evans and Josh Reed to take up the slack. The offensive frontline is a work-in-progress.

Against the rush, the Buffalo defense was ineffective, placing 31st. For two seasons before 2005, the team was number two against the rush. Two rookies, John McCargo and Kyle Williams, may offer immediate help in this area.

Linebacker Takeo Spikes, former Pro Bowler, is coming off major surgery, while tough competitors Jeff Posey and London Fletcher are starting to show their age. Angelo Crowell, a four-year LB, looked good last season and may help fill some gaps.

Cornerback Nate Clements leads a very effective secondary that placed 10th in interceptions. Corner Terrence McGee and free safety Troy Vincent should both offer sound service again and first round draft pick Donte Whitner (Ohio State) will be an upgrade over Lawyer Milloy at SS.

2006 Buffalo Bills Predictions

The Bills are trying to rebuild but lack a quarterback solution, a sound defensive line and go-to receivers. This will not be a playoff year. We have Buffalo finishing last in the AFC East and very well could be the worst team overall in the National Football League in 2006.
