I'm all for people chasing their dreams, but I am 100% against this abortion of a song that The Game helped Buffalo Bills' receiver Stevie Johnson record in a studio that obviously is not on a tight budget for time slots that may produce music worth listening to.
Former Buffalo Bills quarterback Jim Kelly was happy to see Tim Tebow sign with the New York Jets.
But, it wasn’t because Kelly was excited to watch him play. Instead, it was for the turmoil the move may cause a division rival.
“As a Buffalo Bills fan, I hope there’s so much turmoil during training camp, I hope Tebow plays great, he pushes (Mark) Sanchez, and all of a sudden...
