The Buffalo Bills blew out the New York Jets on Sunday. It’s another classic example of getting caught on the ice and not being able to catch your footing http://www.billscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-josh-allen-jersey , something the Bills know all too well. This time, it was the Jets that had no answers. Here are our five takeaways:Hello Matt Barkley, bye Nathan PetermanWhat a great game from Matt Barkley, chucking it all over the field early and often. He went 15-of-25 for 232 yards and two touchdown passes. It’s the best performance by a Bills QB all year. When Buffalo announced Barkley would start over Peterman, you knew the second-year guy was on his way out. This slams the door.Zay Jones is coming into his ownJones had a great game, setting career highs. Eight catches for 93 yards and a score were all bests for Jones in the NFL. He also had a goal-line fumble that may have kept a second TD off the board. (Jason Croom fell on it for a Bills score.) The emergence of Jones this season has been a welcome sight for Bills fans who thought he was a bust as a rookie.Finally, Shady on trackFinally. LeSean McCoy has 26 carries for 113 yards and two touchdowns in his best performance in almost a year. The offensive line opened holes and McCoy showed he hadn’t lost a step, even dropping a sick spin move on the Jets. Marcus Murphy added 62 yards on 13 carries. Maybe Wyatt Teller helped a lot!Isaiah McKenzie turns headsThe Bills tried to sign McKenzie from the Denver Broncos practice squad earlier in the year, but the release of Chad Kelly meant they had a spot on the active roster. When McKenzie was released a couple weeks later, Buffalo hopped on the waiver wire. He had three rushes for 32 yards, 1 catch for 14 yards, a kickoff return of 33 yards, and four punt returns for 42 yards. He was electric with the ball in his hands.Another great defensive effortThe Bills defense showed up again on Sunday. Matt Milano and Micah Hyde had interceptions. Jordan Poyer, Jerry Hughes, and Shaq Lawson had sacks. The Jets had one yard of offense in the first quarter and were demoralized early on. The Bills were hitting hard and not letting anyone on the Jets settle into a groove. It was a complete team effort. It’s no secret that quarterbacks Josh Allen, Derek Anderson, and Nathan Peterman have all struggled with sub-par wide receiver play. Fans have rightly pointed out that the Buffalo Bills’ talent at the position leaves more than a little to be desired. Having previously looked at how Buffalo got to where it is along the offensive line and at quarterback, it seems fitting to now review the opportunities Brandon Beane and Sean McDermott have had acquiring talent along the receiving front. As was the case when we looked at quarterbacks, they will be referred to as “McBeane” given the fact that they function as a unit compared to the deep schism that existed between, say, Doug Whaley and Doug Marrone.2017The Bills ended 2016 with Brandon Tate, Robert Woods, Marquise Goodwin, Sammy Watkins, and Greg Salas as the primary receivers. Woods was a free agent who got nearly $8 million per season from the Los Angeles Rams while Goodwin got about $6.5 million per season from the San Francisco 49ers. Tate re-signed with the Bills for 2017 and was primarily a return man. Buffalo shipped Watkins off to the Rams for E.J. Gaines and a draft pick. It’s fair to say that the Bills deconstructed the wide receiver unit by trading Watkins and not trying to retain Goodwin and Woods.Free agentsTerrelle Pryor signed with the Washington Redskins who, at the time, were his sixth team in as many seasons. Alshon Jeffery could have helped the Bills, though he signed with the Philadelphia Eagles for $14 million a season. If the Bills weren’t going to sign Watkins to a new deal http://www.billscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-tre_davious-white-jersey , they certainly weren’t going to pay Jeffery. Pierre Garcon, Jeremy Maclin, Eric Decker, DeSean Jackson, Brandon Marshall, Cordarrelle Patterson, Michael Floyd, Ted Ginn Jr., Kendall Wright, Victor Cruz, and a load of other free agents were good non-moves. Buffalo got some mileage out of Deonte Thompson but didn’t think enough of him to keep him around for 2018, and Rod Streater seemed to always be hurt. Andre Holmes was the longest-lasting player of the bunch, though he hasn’t done a lot for Buffalo. There weren’t a lot of free agent options for McBeane.TradesThe Chicago Bears traded for Dontrelle Inman, The Cleveland Browns traded for Sammie Coates, the Denver Broncos for Isaiah McKenzie, and Kansas City for Jehu Chesson. Meanwhile Buffalo traded for Kelvin Benjamin and Kaelin Clay. There wasn’t a lot there, though other wide receivers could have theoretically been targeted by McBeane.DraftBuffalo traded down in the first, letting Kansas City select quarterback Patrick Mahomes, while the Bills took Tre’Davious White at the back end of the first round. McBeane actually took the next wide receiver off the board in the form of Zay Jones, passing on Curtis Samuel and JuJu Smith-Schuster before taking Dion Dawkins. Taking Dawkins meant passing on Cooper Kupp, who has looked good with the Rams. It can be argued that very few of the other receivers drafted would have been of much help to Buffalo.2018The Bills ended 2017 with Kelvin Benjamin, Andre Holmes, Zay Jones, Jordan Matthews, Brandon Tate, and Deonte Thompson as their receivers. Matthews, Tate, and Thompson all walked at the end of the year White Micah Hyde Jersey , leaving the Bills extremely short-handed at the position. This was clearly a unit that needed to be addressed by McBeane as the Bills’ receivers proved to be less-than-lethal in 2017 with Tyrod Taylor at quarterback.Free agentsJarvis Landry was franchised by the Miami Dolphins. Allen Robinson II signed with the Bears and hasn’t been outstanding. Former Bill Sammy Watkins signed a deal with the Chiefs for $16 million per season—more than McBeane was unwilling to pay in 2017. Michael Crabtree signed with the Baltimore Ravens, Marqise Lee with the Jacksonville Jaguars, Rishard Matthews with the New York Jets, Mike Wallace with the Eagles, Jordy Nelson with the Oakland Raiders, Eric Decker (retired) with the New England Patriots, and a lot of other guys with a lot of other teams. As with 2016, there wasn’t an instant upgrade to be had in free agency. The Bills eventually wound up with Terelle Pryor, who didn’t have an auspicious start to his Buffalo career after finding himself available mid-season. TradesThe Eagles traded for Golden Tate (third-round pick), the Houston Texans for Demaryius Thomas (fourth- and seventh-round picks), the Dallas Cowboys for Tavon Austin (sixth-round pick) and Amari Cooper (first-round pick), the Pittsburgh Steelers for Ryan Switzer (fifth-round pick), the Rams for Brandin Cooks (first-round pick), Cleveland for Jarvis Landry (fourth- and seventh-round picks), and the Carolina Panthers for Torrey Smith. Meanwhile, Buffalo traded for Corey Coleman—a really stupid move that cost the team a lot of cap space for absolutely nothing. Buffalo could have gotten Tate for something like a combination of a third- and fifth-round pick or Thomas for a third-rounder. Either would have helped Buffalo’s less-than-stellar quarterbacks. As with 2017, other receivers could have been targeted for trade but those listed here were players who actually were traded.DraftAfter trading up for Josh Allen and Tremaine Edmunds, the Bills next picked at the end of the third round. They took Harrison Phillips over Keke Coutee and Antonio Callaway. Given the hole created by the Marcell Dareus trade, it’s hard to second-guess them for that pick. McBeane took the next wide receiver you’ve heard of in the sixth round: Ray-Ray McCloud II.ConclusionMcBeane’s trades for Benjamin and Clay look bad in hindsight. The decision to let Woods walk doesn’t look good either, though the time to sign him would have been before he got to free agency—which would have been Whaley instead of McBeane. Zay Jones seems to have shaken his tendency to drop the ball, so he’s not looking to be a total waste of an early draft pick. Not trading for Golden Tate is perhaps the biggest non-move that McBeane should have made. He’s been productive over his career and plays hard, which is more than can be said for some of Buffalo’s receivers. Free agency wasn’t as loaded with good receiver options in 2017 or 2018 as it originally seemed, at least not in Buffalo’s salary cap position. Looking ahead to 2019 when the Bills will have a lot of cap space, Golden Tate can actually be considered one of the possible prize free agents. Barring a trade, McBeane will need to look to the draft for high-quality receiving help.
