The Buffalo Bills started to show signs of life in the second half of the 2010 season under first-year Head Coach Chan Gailey. Examples of that growth were taking playoff teams like Pittsburgh and Baltimore to overtime, and the close loss to Kansas City on the road.
But how will the Bills respond to Gailey and turn those hard lessons into more wins in 2011? You would like to think that the Bills will be able to show greater maturity and confidence in their ability to learn how to make big plays in the fourth quarter that turn close losses into close wins.
It is genuinely believed that the Bills have helped their poor rush defense with an infusion of new blood through the 2011 NFL draft. But what about the other veterans on the Bills team? Who needs to step up their level of play to lead the Bills to a winning record?
We are going to identify 25 Bills veterans who could stand some degree of improvement, noting that some just need a few tweaks, while others need to make giant leaps. We will start with the few tweaks, working our way up to those needing major improvement.
