Bills RB Spiller eager to bounce back from dud

C.J. Spiller refuses to let a season-opening dud get in the way of his pursuit to establish himself as one of the NFL's elite. So long as he keeps his hands on the ball and frustrations in check, the Buffalo Bills running back sees no reason to worry. The first step Wednesday was putting behind a forgettable performance in a 23-21 loss to New England on Sunday. He lost a fumble...

Where You At T.J. Graham!?!

If you’ve been reading my Chalk Talks then you’d notice one thing… I’m rather critical of wide receiver T.J. Graham. And that didn’t change after Sunday’s disappearing act. After a dismal rookie season for Graham, which was highlighted by drops and poor route running, especially in the Week 8 match-up at New England, there was a lot of pressure on the NC State alum coming...

Marrone Looking for First Win, Tasker Says He’s Changed Buffalo’s Culture

Doug Marrone’s first few days of training camp were not the best foot forward. In early August he got incredibly defensive when Buffalo media questioned why star defensive end Mario Williams had been missing for three days without explanation. Marrone even invoked FERPA regulations for not being more forthcoming. Yeah… about that. The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act...

Before the Bills regular season began last week, the Buffalo News had reported that franchise safety Jairus Byrd and his agent, Eugene Parker, had been orchestrating a trade out of Buffalo. On Wednesday morning, Bills President & CEO Russ Brandon took to the airwaves to dispute the reports that Byrd requested a trade out of Buffalo. “There was no trade request,” Brandon said...

Buffalo Bills: 2013 Week 2 NFL Power Rankings (#27)

The Bills are one of several teams that blew leads against superior opponents this week and this one has to hurt the most, not just because it was the Patriots, but because they were the only team this week to win the turnover battle and lose the game. Winning the turnover battle is not something you can count on, especially for a team like the Bills, so you have to capitalize when...

Here we go: Carolina @ Buffalo - The Panthers...

Bills QB Lewis using iPad to stay relevant

BY DAN BEGNOCHEBack in April, the Buffalo Bills tossed a bit of 21st century technology into their system, swapping out their traditional playbooks for iPads. This week Thad Lewis, the team's practice squad quarterback, used that transition to his advantage.“When I went to look at Carolina (Panthers) defensive film on my iPad I saw that there was some Carolina offense in there...

Film Review: Manuel's impressive debut

BY SEAN DONOVANDespite the fact that they lost, the Buffalo Bills were counted among the teams that pleasantly surprised Week 1. They stood toe-to-toe with divisional juggernaut New England, carrying a lead late in the fourth quarter before losing on a field goal in the closing seconds.The Bills got resilient performances on both sides of the ball, but perhaps the most impressive...

Week 1 Pass Defense Review

*I’m going to run a weekly post on the Bills’ passing defense each week. I will chart all of the passing plays against the Bills this season and report what I find. These are my findings and may not match exactly with other totals (such as PFF), but the discrepancies can be a result of me not double counting QB pressures (I’m only counting the first defender there) and also...

Panthers-Bills Preview

EJ Manuel earned a lot of praise after his NFL debut. Cam Newton can certainly relate given his marvelous rookie year, though his season debut didn't go so well. Both two-dimensional signal-callers look to help their teams bounce back from tantalizingly close losses to playoff teams from last season as the Buffalo Bills host the Carolina Panthers on Sunday. The only quarterback...

In The Backfield: Top 5 Fantasy Running Backs For Week 2

Week one is in the books with some surprises both for better and for worse.  Some fantasy running back marriages were crushed due to injury or just piss-poor play.  But I’m here to tell you that it’s going to be okay, and if your first round running back didn’t live up to the hype (Spiller), take a breath, and give it some time.  You two will work it out and be on good terms...
