TEAMS: Buffalo Bills
Queen City Sports is proud to announce that Buffalo Bills writer Carl Pfeiffer has released his third book entitled Someday! In Someday! Pfeiffer takes you on a twisted and emotional, journey through Bills history. For countless people who call Buffalo and Western New York home, the Bills are more than a football team; they are a member of the family. A family member who sometimes makes you proud, sometimes is frustrating and sometimes breaks your heart. This is a unique look at one team’s impact on a fan, his family and his life. Not a typical sports book, Someday! is told entirely from the fan’s biased perspective. Pfeiffer in his funny way chronicles eight heartbreaking losses in Buffalo Bills history, how they impacted his life and what they meant to his hometown. Along the way, Carl gives his unique views on Hall of Famers Jim Kelly and Bruce Smith, why the Bills really were the winners of Super Bowl XXVIII and in Buffalo there beats the heart of a champion. Someday! illustrates in fascinating detail every opinion Pfeiffer has about his beloved Bills ranging from their biggest boneheaded moves, to conversations he imagined the Bills brass had with Jim Kelly’s agent, to how he would run the Bills if he were Buffalo’s business manager. All told in Pfeiffer’s light-hearted, first person, conversational style. If you are a fan of the Buffalo Bills or any long-suffering team then Someday! is an entertaining look into the heart of a fan. A fan who is still waiting and hoping for the Championship parade to come down the Main Street of his hometown. Someday is available at:   http://www.lulu.com/shop/colonel-retired-carl-e-pfeiffer/someday/paperback/product-21101064.html The post One Fan’s Journey Through Buffalo Bills History appeared first on Queen City Sports.

In the 16 months since Mario Williams signed a lucrative six-year, $100 million contract with the Bills, it has been anything but smooth sailing for the former first overall pick.  An up-and-down 2012 campaign and an offseason full of distraction have left the Bills’ top pass rusher with the task of winning back the fans he so lovingly gushed about when he first came to Buffalo...

NT Marcell Dareus struggling to earn starting job

It was one year ago that Buffalo Bills defensive lineman Marcell Dareus was a man ready to be a star. Instead, the No. 3 overall pick in the 2011 draft hasn’t made the jump and now is struggling to earn a starting job on the team’s defensive line. Dareus' younger brother was tragically murdered a week before the start of the NFL season, and he was unable to focus on football...

The Draft: EJ Manuel v. Geno Smith

Welcome to DJ’s Chalk Talk: Off-season Week 3! This week we look at why EJ Manuel was the better draft choice than Geno Smith. Enjoy!

After trading back from the eighth slot with the Rams, Buffalo acquired the 16th selection...

Are the Buffalo Bills the NFL version of the movie “Groundhog Day”

What year is it again?  I feel we have already told this story of what the Buffalo Bills need in the off season. This situation sounds a lot like the well known movie “Groundhog Day” where every day was the same.  Well it is a new year, but they have the same needs; a quarterback, wide receivers and defensive front seven help.  New General Manager Doug Whaley and new Head...

NFL.com’s Marcell Dareus Story Overblown

Gregg Rosenthal from NFL.com published a story yesterday about Buffalo Bills defensive linemen Marcell Dareus that said the former top draft pick was “behind Alex Carrington” in 3 man fronts and “battling with Jay Ross” in 4 man fronts. Silver Alex Carrington linings playbook aside, it goes without saying that this is not great news for the Bills or theirs fans. However,...

Report: Bills, Jairus Byrd don’t have any contract talks scheduled

According to WGR 550 in Buffalo, there haven’t been any contract talks scheduled between the Bills and safety Jairus Byrd.

Report: Jairus Byrd expected to hold out

According to ESPN’s John Clayton,  safety Jairus Byrd isn’t optimistic that he’ll get the long-term stability from the Buffalo Bills that he’s looking for and he might end up holding out from training camp. I’m still trying to figure out why the Bills are so reluctant to sign Byrd to a long-term extension.  They have over $18 million in cap room and he’s  one of their...

Why C.J. Spiller Should Be Avoided In 1st Round of Fantasy Drafts

I knew about him long before his days at Clemson, I knew about the size, the speed, the agility and the Heisman aspirations in college before he made the move to the pros.And when Buffalo pulled the trigger in the 2010 Draft and his name was called with the ninth pick, one ahead of my Jacksonville Jaguars...

The Fan Rulebook

Obviously, I have given a lot of thought to being a fan. How else could I have come up with a whole book on the topic? I think being a fan is important. So important that I have some rules that help all of us real fans weed out the pretenders. First, fan is short for fanatic. Webster defines fanatic as – excessive enthusiasm and often intense and extreme devotion. The word itself...
