Head coach Sean McDermott said that rookie Josh Allen is the unquestioned leader of the offense and inside the Bills' locker room the team agrees whole-heartedly.
At 4-9, the Bills are out of playoff contention but there is something to be happy about here at One Bills Drive, it appears they found their leaders of the future.
In this year's draft they took Josh Allen first, he's the leader of the offense.
Then they also selected linebacker Tremaine Edmunds later in the first round. The consensus here at One Bills Drive is that these two young men really grew into their rolls and will be successful for years to come.
"It's tough for rookies to come in and take over," says Bills defensive tackle Kyle Williams. "Guys have to show day in and day out that they're there to work so that they can perform on Sunday and both of those guys have done that. As the later part of their rookie season has gone on they're getting more comfortable with the command of offense or defense and the comfort of where they fall in with the football team."
The rookies both know that they're still a work in progress, but they know they're on the right track for future success.
"I was a natural born leader," proclaims rookie linebacker Tremaine Edmunds, "and sometimes it's vocal and sometimes it's going to be by example. But at the end of the day I'm trying to lead and bring guys along with me."
"Talking a lot as a team," says rookie quarterback Josh Allen, "as we evolve as leaders and as this team gets older, taking the right steps and becoming a leader, influencing each other, challenging each other and at the end transform this team and put it on the right track to where we want to go."
Josh Allen adds that there's still plenty to play for, he'd like a few more wins to carry that momentum into the off-season.
A victory on Sunday could certainly help. They play Detroit at 1 p.m.
