Bills ‘O’ already being touted as most improved

They’ve only added the talent on paper so far this offseason, but the NFL prognosticators are already putting the label on Buffalo’s offense as the most improved.

NFL.com listed the top five most improved offenses based on pieces that teams have added. With LeSean McCoy, Percy Harvin and Charles Clay headlining the offensive additions over the past month or so, they listed the Bills as number one. Here’s what they wrote.

1. Buffalo Bills

Additions: LeSean McCoy, Percy Harvin, Charles Clay, Matt Cassel, Richie Incognito, Jerome Felton and Tyrod Taylor

NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks has outlined the reasons to expect new coordinator Greg Roman’s offense to spark a legitimate playoff run this season. Minus a reliable quarterback, Roman will orchestrate a run-centric offense with McCoy, bruising lead blocker Felton and savvy veteran Fred Jackson. The 49ers ranked eighth, fourth, third and fourth in the past four years under Roman.

In Harvin and Sammy Watkins, Roman has the benefit of two explosive weapons to draw up creative misdirection runs and gadget plays that will frustrate defensive coordinators. Throw in tight end Charles Clay and possession receiver Robert Woods, and the Bills might have more weapons than any offense in the league.

This collection of playmakers can stretch the field horizontally like few we’ve ever seen. The question is whether they can beat defenses vertically.
