The Buffalo Bills invested $120 million into 33 year-old Von Miller for one reason, to win a Super Bowl. Miller brought with him to western New York two enormous championship rings from two different teams. Bills' general manager Brandon Bean and head coach Sean McDermott knew what Miller brought to the table besides being an All-Pro defensive star. Von Miller carries an understanding of what it takes to be a champion and has the gift of imparting that knowledge to his teammates.
The Buffalo Bills are the odds-on favorite to win Super Bowl LVII in Glendale, Arizona next February. A lot of things have to go right for Sean McDermott's team but they are certainly built for the task. Nobody knows that much better than the New York Giants new braintrust, general manager Joe Schoen and head coach Brian Daboll. That's why it will be very interesting to to watch over the next few weeks as teams whittle their rosters down to 53 by 4pm on August 30th, how many former Buffalo Bills become New York Giants.
What is that saying about first impressions? How about one made by a person that is not even sure they are going to be around? It's awesome when you see college and professional athletes do great things in their communities. When they are random acts of kindness with no cameras focusing in, those are character revealing.
Davis ran the ball 8 times for 42 yards and a touchdown. 5 yards per carry and he got into the end zone? That's a pretty good day, except when your team loses and begins to fade once again from the playoff picture. The Bills beat the Falcons 29-15 and Atlanta dropped to 7-9. Along with the loss, Davis had to eat some, well, fine tasting crow this weekend.
