The Buffalo Bills are quickly approaching the start of training camp as players and staff start reporting to St. John Fisher College on Wednesday.

After making the playoffs for the first time in 18 years, the Bills are getting back to work and looking to continue their success from last season. However, many are doubting the Bills' chances in 2018, expecting the team to dip back in production, especially on offense.

Tyler Dunne of Bleacher Report joined Schopp and the Bulldog on Tuesday to talk about the Bills prior to training camp. Dunne spoke on the team's expectations for this season and what he believes will be done with rookie quarterback Josh Allen.

Here's some of what he had to say:

On seeing Josh Allen play:

"At some point, I think that you have to play Josh Allen, you have to see what you have, and you're going to be tempted to."

On this upcoming Bills season, as well as their future:

"I don't really think the playoffs are a realistic bar for the team, the defense may be better in some spots, but who knows what happens with LeSean McCoy, but I think it's a good thing they are thinking long term."

On why Allen's performance this year isn't do or die:

"If a quarterbacks development is stunted by getting sacked six times a game, and going 0-7 as a starter, he's probably not your guy."

On why the Bills won't make the playoffs:

"The Bills had some pretty good luck, I just can't see them getting the break they did last year, this year."
