      Hard to believe, but with training camps having begun and August already here, the 2012 NFL season is mercifully at our doorstep. That means fewer ‘Stephen Strasburg is going to get shut down’ stories and more ‘HOLY CRAP, TIM TEBOW IS SHIRTLESS IN THE RAIN!!!’ stories. Thank. God.   Even better, the 2012 NFL pre-season arrives with no lockout-related distractions this year. Instead of cramming the whole thing into a tiny time frame, we get a whole month of completely irrelevant football! That’s right, an entire month of injuries, intrigue, coach-speak, daily Tebow updates, Rex Ryan Super Bowl guarantees, and various other training camp staples. Seriously, if you aren’t excited, then you probably aren’t human. Either that or you have a real life…either way, something’s wrong with you.   Since we here at Boris Diaw Time indeed have no real life, we’ll be doing an elongated 2012 NFL preview. Over the next month, we’ll be writing about and talking about as mu

Report: Dwayne Bowe expected to not miss any regular season games

Getty Images According to Jim Trotter of SI.com, Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe is expected to not miss any regular season games. “I’m told, however, there is virtually no chance that Bowe will pass up game checks that amount to $559,000 a week. He skipped offseason workouts while hoping to land a multi-year deal, so he could be behind when he finally reports...

Kansas City Chiefs 2012 NFL Season Preview

In 2010, the Chiefs made the playoffs, winning the AFC West with 10 victories. In 2011, they won just 7 games, but suffered major injuries to Jamaal Charles, Eric Berry, Tony Moeaki, and Matt Cassel. Charles went down for the season week 2. Moeaki missed the entire year, as did Berry, with the exception of 5 snaps in the opener before tearing his ACL. Cassel, meanwhile, missed 7...

Buffalo Bills: 4 Projected Camp Casualties

Bills training camp is now in its second week and there have been some heartening sights for fans hoping that Buffalo is as good as the hype machine has them on paper. The defense has been staggering so far, vastly outshining the offense, who are progressing well, but look like the junior varsity against the first-string defenders. The rebuilt and much vaunted line has been rampaging...

Bills LB Sheppard sidelined by 'medical issue'

Buffalo Bills starting middle linebacker Kelvin Sheppard missed practice due to what coach Chan Gailey would only call a medical issue. Without revealing what the issue is, Gailey on Wednesday said he expects Sheppard to miss a couple of days of training camp. Sheppard watched the team's night practice from the sideline. Starting defensive tackle Marcell Dareus was held out...

Bills RBs Jackson, Spiller willing to share load

The Buffalo Bills have two capable running backs in Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller, and yet only one ball to go around. For coach Chan Gailey, that's not a bad problem to have. With a desire to get the most out of the two, Gailey's already cautioned Jackson and Spiller to limit their expectations regarding playing time and production because he intends for them to share...

Jamaal Charles: “I got my mojo back”

Getty Images Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles told the Kansas City Star that he’s gotten his “mojo back” after tearing his ACL last season. “I feel good,” Charles said. “I feel like I got my mojo back. I feel happy. I feel comfortable out there, and I’m ready to go. My legs feel fresh.” Charles added that he’s able to make cuts like normal on zone...

Buffalo Linebacker Kelvin Sheppard Sidelined

As the Bills training camp progresses, there have been heartening signs all over the field, especially as many of the walking wounded are returning to full health. Oft-sidelined center Eric Wood, who has been limited to individual drills during his slow, careful road to recovery, was finally taking snaps with the first team. Yes, he only took two, but it’s still a sign things...

Chiefs sign OT Willis; Ugoh retires

The Chiefs signed offensive tackle Ray Willis and waived fullback Taylor Gentry. Kansas City needed to add another veteran offensive tackle when Tony Ugoh decided to retire after being signed last week. "He retired from the game and there's nothing we can do about that," Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel said. "You've got to have a desire and you've got to...

Kansas City Chiefs: Jamaal Charles & Hillis Among 3 Dynamic Duos

It is unfair to give the Chiefs' offense anything but an incomplete grade for last season. The offense was built around the dynamic talents of Jamaal Charles and his spit-take-inducing running style, lost to a torn ACL in Week 2, and a passing game with timing-based short and intermediate routes.   After tight end Tony Moeaki was lost with a torn ACL in the preseason and Jonathan...

Roethlisberger, Haley promise to play nice

LATROBE, Pa. -- Todd Haley laughs about it, Ben Roethlisberger shrugs. Neither believe anything will deter them from winning games for the Pittsburgh Steelers. The quarterback and new coach shrug off concerns about two strong personalities uniting, offseason chatter be dadgumed. Haley called called the worries "comical." "I've heard some of it just through feedback...

Bills sign RB Brown

Running back Zach Brown signed with the Bills, who waived/injured running back Chris Douglas. Brown, an undrafted rookie out of Pittsburgh who rushed for 357 yards last season, participated in the team's rookie minicamp on a tryout basis in May.

The transcendent words of Buddy Nix

Follow Aaron on Twitter When the Bills announced their new general manager with three games remaining in the 2009 season, I was left scratching my head. Not because I thought it was a bad move, but merely because I had no idea who Buddy Nix was. I consider myself to be a sports aficionado, and can designate countless sports personalities to their professions. But, for some reason...
