60 Max Power O:
The Pro Football Hall of Fame welcomed its newest class this past weekend, as Willie Roaf, Chris Doleman, Cortez Kennedy, Dermontti Dawson, Curtis Martin and Jack Butler made up the Class of 2012.
And for the seventh straight year, former Buffalo Bills wide receiver Andre Reed had to watch from home instead of taking his rightful place in the Canton, Ohio, facility.
Reed was once again a finalist in 2012, making it to the very final round of voting before getting left off the list along with fellow receivers Cris Carter and Tim Brown – which was a surprise considering four linemen made the cut.
And, unfortunately for Reed, the path to enshrinement will not get easier in 2013. Along with Carter and Brown, lineman Charles Haley and coach Bill Parcells are holdovers from previous ballots. They will be joined by first-timers Larry Allen, Jonathan Ogden and sure-fire Hall of Famer Michael Strahan. Warren Sapp, John Lynch, Priest Holmes and Morten Anderson will also join the list ...

The disaster that became the Buffalo Bills' 2011 season was seen to be largely blamed on the poor performance of the injured offensive line.
The big boys of the offense started out tremendously and their work during the 5-2 start was enough to carry them to the fewest sacks in the NFL, as well as ranking them fifth in rushing yards per carry.
However, a lack of depth and...
Now that Arthur Moats has settled into practicing just one position in the Buffalo Bills defense, the jack-of-all-trades player has performed so well at outside linebacker that he's challenging for a starting job.
That was defensive coordinator Dave Wannstedt's view on Tuesday, when assessing his linebacker rotation in preparation for Buffalo's preseason opener against...
Fred Jackson was a fantasy football beast in 2011 before suffering a season ending broken leg. Despite his solid play, he may not have near the same value this season as the Bills will likely use CJ Spiller more often in 2012.
This fact didn’t stop Jackson from announcing that he is a top 5 running back. As reported by Michael David Smith of PFT.com, Jackson said on ESPN that his...
Torell Troup is still trying to become an impact player with the Buffalo Bills.
But, he’ll have to overcome injuries and surgery first.
Troup, a nose tackle selected with the Buffalo Bills’ second round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, recently had offseason back surgery and has been trying to take part in team drills during training camp. However, he apparently had some sort...
The Buffalo Bills' preseason opener will be blacked out in the Buffalo market, but those going to the game will encounter a new game day experience.
The team announced Thursday's game against the Washington Redskins was still about 20,000 tickets short of selling out. The game will be rebroadcast in Buffalo at 8 p.m. Friday on WKBW Channel 7. It will also air in Rochester...
Veteran RB Travis Henry was reinstated by the NFL on Tuesday and is currently looking for a franchise to join. Henry, 33, served two years of a three year jail sentence after reaching a plea deal involving his arrest for his involvement in financing of a cocaine trafficking operation.
Henry played seven seasons in the NFL for three different teams. Three times in his career, he eclipsed...

Stop me if you’ve heard this before: ‘Shawne Merriman is looking like a defensive monster in camp.’ Chances are, you, like myself, hit the stop button after ‘looking like’.
Yes, we’ve all heard this story before. Merriman looks great in practice and he’ll probably have a strong preseason like last year, but then what? Do we get yet another...
One of the biggest questions surrounding the Buffalo Bills for the upcoming season is whether or not the offense will be able to take the next step forward and make the most of the extra possessions that will inevitably come with having a much improved defense. Finishing with a ranking of 14th overall last year was a big boost for a unit that is still trying to find an identity and...
The 2012 London Summer Olympics have been a rousing success for England, and for the World. And as always around this time, there are those areas of the World that talk about pipe dream ideas of hosting the Olympics in their own city.
This year one, or two, depending on how you look at it, of those areas is the Greater Toronto Area and Buffalo.
Toronto Counciler James Pasternak brought...

Before reading my blog post I ask that you read Todd Clark’s post first. It’s a great post and my post is kind of a reply to his.
If you’re a Buffalo Bills fan, I don’t have to tell you that we have suffered through far too many “promising” offseasons. In the 2002 offseason the Bills traded their 2003 1st round draft pick to the New England Patriots...

This Thursday marks the first preseason game for both the Buffalo Bills and the Washington Redskins. They’ll play at Ralph Wilson Stadium where fans can experience watching football when there isn’t a snow storm. Needless to say, expectations are high. Of course once you remind these sun-kissed fans that it’s just a preseason game – [...]
On Sunday, September 25, 2011, I awoke fairly early in the morning despite the fact that I probably had a hangover. I can’t say I had one for certain because the events of that fateful Sunday wiped out any memory of the preceding days. All that mattered that day was a three and a half hour time period that removed an eight- year spell of torture and brittleness casted on the...
