The ‘new’ pro bowl was a pleasant surprise

The Pro Bowl has always been an interesting time in the football season between voting for who should go, revealing who’s actually going and who got snubbed. Why does the game actually happen?

Buffalo Bills 2014 Off-Season Report

2013 Recap The Bills were the only team in the NFL to select a quarterback in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft.

May the Schwartz be with you!

David Richard/AP Christopher Kelleher Buffalo Bills Writer My initial reaction to the Buffalo Bills hiring of Jim Schwartz as their Defensive Coordinator was hesitant as best.
