"The window is closing for the Buffalo Bills."
"Josh Allen cannot thrive without Brian Daboll."
"Stefon Diggs wants out of Buffalo."
"Josh Allen isn't the guy we thought he was."
"The Bills are the fourth best team in the AFC East."
"The AFC belongs to the Miami Dolphins."
"The Jets have leap frogged the Bills."
"The Chiefs are the team to beat."
"The Bengals are the team to beat."
Are we done yet, folks?!

The Tua Tagovailoa vs. Josh Allen debate is over. The Joe Burrow vs. Josh Allen debate is over. The Buffalo Bills, three-peat AFC East champions and well on their way to a fourth, just completely dismantled the "unstoppable" Miami Dolphins offense, absolutely spanking them all the way back down to South Beach with a 48-20 beatdown. The Dolphins themselves sounded off all week long (looking at you, domestic abuser Tyreek Hill) Dolphins fans had the loudest Twitter fingers on the planet, and the national media was completely sold on the Dolphins being the AFC East's new premier team, only to get a taste of humble pie, as their daddy Josh Allen (9-2, 31 passing touchdowns and 5 rushing TD's in his career against Miami) fathered them once again and reminded them who they truly are - the little brothers.
Oh, by the way, the Bills big duo that everyone claimed hated each other now, were breaking up, one wants out because the other is washed?
Josh Allen - 21/25, 337 yards (320 passing) 4 passing touchdowns, 1 rushing touchdown, 84% completion rate.
Stefon Diggs - 6 receptions, 120 yards, 3 touchdowns.
Sound OFF Adam Schein!
The "second best QB in the league" Joe Burrow and "the team to beat behind the Chiefs" Cincinnati Bengals are crashing and burning with a 1-3 record, while star receiver Ja'Marr Chase shades the team's play calling only 4 weeks into the season. Trouble in paradise? Suddenly no one wants to make a up a "Ja'Marr wants out of Cincinnati" narrative like they did with Diggs? All of a sudden no one wants to call Burrow "washed" and "immature" after signing a contract that made him the highest paid player in the NFL? Could you imagine the frenzy that would stir if Josh Allen signed that contract and then lost 27-3 against the mediocre-as-all-hell Tennessee Titans and led his team to a 1-3 start?
The only team in the NFL that the Buffalo Bills have to prove anything to is the Kansas City Chiefs, and even they have struggled mightily against the likes of the Detroit Lions, Jacksonville Jaguars and New York Jets. And yes, the Bills lost to the Jets in Week 1. It was tough, it was embarrassing, but they learned from that mistake and came out and completely decimated their next three opponents. Meanwhile, the Chiefs have been overshadowed by the presence of Taylor Swift, as the league clearly continues to pull for them in order to drive Travis Kelce jersey sales and TV ratings from Swifties, and needed the official's help with a completely bogus holding call on Sauce Gardener to beat the Jets on Sunday Night Football in Week 4.
The Chiefs have the rings to back it up, they have the bragging rights, but as it stands right now, the Buffalo Bills clear them by a mile in 2023.
Simply put, it's time. It's time to stop with the weird anti-Buffalo narratives, it's time to stop slandering the team for clicks and engagements, it's time to stop saying silly things just for the sake of being controversial. You can say what you want, love it or hate it, but you know it, I know it, we all know it: the Buffalo Bills are top dogs in the AFC, and most likely in all of football.
Next stop, Super Bowl 58.
