The Buffalo Bills are gearing up for the offseason after suffering a brutal playoff defeat at the hands of Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals.

While the gut punch of the blowout still resonates with fans, the team has already begun its plans for the upcoming season.

During his end-of-year press conference, Brandon Beane discussed a wide array of topics and plans for the team’s immediate future.

One of which gave Bills Mafia an answer that some members may not like. Specifically, on the coaching staff for next year.

Brandon Beane and the entire front office are careful with their words. The tight-lipped organization appears to only say very specific things and typically wordsmith their way to continued mystery. However, this wasn’t the case with Beane’s very clear and direct response to a question surrounding offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey.

Beane directly made the statement referring to Dorsey and his future as the offensive coordinator “enters year two.” Fairly cut and dry to indicate that Dorsey will be returning next season to run the offense.

The quarterback’s coach turned offensive coordinator struggled at times throughout the year. While this year had its fair share of ups and downs on the football field, there were also moments of brilliance.

Case and point, the opening game of the season. Buffalo shut down the defending Super Bowl champions on their own field and then a few weeks later ran roughshod on the Tennessee Titans.

However, down the stretch, Buffalo’s once high-powered offense puttered to the finish line. On social media, it was apparent that there’s a very clear divide on what the next steps should be.

While the Bills offense was one of the best in the league, it still had its faults. It’s clear to see that many were calling for some sweeping changes after the playoff loss. The struggles with the offensive line, a lack of depth in the receiving room, and Josh Allen’s injury were all things on the football field Buffalo had to deal with.

Ken Dorsey and Leslie Frazier were two names that fans of the team were calling for to be removed almost immediately after the loss. Furthermore, it didn’t go without fault. Arguably, the Bills had their worst offensive and defensive showing at the worst possible moment.

This offseason will have many questions tied to it as well as incredibly difficult decisions to make. Buffalo is up against it in terms of cap space and has some high-profile players we’re sure the team would like to resign.

However, just a few days into the offseason it appears we have an answer to just one of the many burning questions.

Brandon Beane and the front office have their work cut out for them.
