Carolina Panthers, where he was promoted to offensive coordinator under then-head coach Ron Rivera.The Bills, as well as their quarterback Josh Allen, have been
good statistically but also havent looked right this season. Mondays loss to the Broncos was the latest example. Allen was the source of three of the Bills four turnovers, with two interceptions and an embarrassing fumble that came on a simple ball exchange.
Allen is tied for the league lead in touchdown passes with 19, but he also has a league-leading 11 interceptions through 10 games as well as four fumbles. That pretty much sums up the Josh Allen experience in 2023.
Moving Brady to offensive coordinator might be one of the better moves the Bills have made this season. Hes just 34 and has spent the past decade coaching at the college level (including LSU, where he coached
Joe Burrow during his Heisman season) and in the NFL. Prior to being hired by the Bills in 2022, he spent two seasons as an offensive assistant with the
New Orleans Saints and then (like his predecessor) spent a few years with the Panthers before getting fired.
The Bills now have a chance to test drive Brady for a few months before deciding if they want more of him, or if they want to wipe the slate clean and start over with a new OC in 2024.
