How did the Buffalo Bills wind up 6-10? At the midway point of 2011 they were 5-2. They would only win one more game, and lose seven in a row. Not good at all. This one perplexes me a bit, as we have seen some questionable decisions be made by the management but they seem to have talent. Why it never all comes together for them who can say? Of course I can try to say, but that is just what I think based on the facts I have before me. I think the move back to a 4-3 defense will do wonders for this team as they never had the right personnel to efficiently run the 3-4. Of course they ran a lot of four man fronts late in the season to little effect. Maybe the numbers will give us some insight as to what is going on with the Bills. The offense scored372 points or 23.2 points per game. However, they were pretty middle of the road in all of the key statistical categories. However, they were second worst in terms on interceptions and that is not a good stat. He makes me wonder if they have...

Great tribute to Bills Wall of Famer

His career cut short by injury probably isn’t long enough to merit more consideration for the Pro Football Hall of Fame, but Alex Hickey make a good case for Bills Wall of Famer Tom Sestak, arguably the best defensive tackle the franchise has ever seen.
