A long time coming: Buffalo Bills finally relieve OC Ken Dorsey of his duties

The now 5-5 Buffalo Bills went from looking like the best team in the NFL a few short weeks ago, to a squad that is now on the outside looking in on the playoff picture, and things don't look super promising.

After a brutal and embarrassing Monday Night Football loss to the lowly Denver Broncos, heads have finally started to roll in the Bills front office. It was announced this morning that offensive coordinator, Ken Dorsey, has been relieved of his duties, and Buffalo will be handing the reigns over to Joe Brady for the remainder of the season.


For many, myself included, this firing has been a long time coming for Dorsey. If you ask me, he shouldn't have even started the season in Buffalo. After that 27-10 loss against the Cincinnati Bengals in the playoffs last year, that should've been the final nail in the coffin for Dorsey's Bills tenure. Many wonder what other changes might be coming; is Sean McDermott's job as head coach safe? One thing is for sure, the whole coaching staff needs a revamp, and Dorsey was a great place to start.

 

Don't get me wrong, last night's loss to the Broncos was not 100% on Dorsey. Josh Allen has to be way better than he has been over the last few weeks. He now has six straight games with an interception, and leads the league in that category with 11. He threw two picks last night, and although the first one wasn't really his fault, he also botched a handoff to James Cook that resulted in a fumble and a Denver recovery late in the game.


This Bills defense is riddled with injuries, but somehow they are still a force to be reckoned with. It's very discouraging when the defense plays as well as they do, with how short handed they are, and the offense gets onto the field and completely lets them down.


The Buffalo Bills officially only have a 33% chance to make the playoffs this year.
