Thanks for joining us for another installment of Bar Stool Debates, where Joe and Brandon go back and forth on the hottest topics floating around the Buffalo sports scene. After another disappointing football season, today we pose the question: Who should take the fall for the Bills's 13th straight season without a playoff berth, Ryan Fitzpatrick or Chan Gailey. Let the debate begin.
To join in on the conversation you can follow Brandon (@b_schlag) and Joe (@JoeBuffaloWins) on Twitter.
Brandon: With the Bills officially eliminated from playoff contention for yet another season, it's about time we started talking about which heads are going to roll this offseason. Knowing the way Ralph has things operating and the reluctance of Buddy Nix to make any drastic changes to his failing product, it's tough to imagine anything different as long as the aforementioned pair are in place.
Alas, you would hope at least someone would lose their job over this disaster of a...
BEST OF MAXIM
One can name a number of reasons the Buffalo Bills have yet again missed the playoffs. Ryan Fitzpatrick, Aaron Williams, Chan Gailey and Buddy Nix are just a few names that come to mind. While those are the obvious, the real name we must remember is Doug Flutie. The man who brought us “Flutie-Mania” is the same bastard who’s haunting our Buffalo Bills and keeping us out of...
For the last five seasons, the Bills have ventured north of the border for a regular season contest in Toronto's Roger Centre. While it's been good for business -- ticket prices are higher than in Buffalo -- it's provided little to no advantage for the "home" team.
Some players, like veteran center Eric Wood, have grown utterly tired of the tradition.
Not a lot of people know who Kraig Urbik is, but he’s a starting right guard for the Buffalo Bills and he’s actually quite good. A 2 year starter, Urbik graded out as ProFootballFocus 18th ranked guard in 8 starts in 2011 and ranks 24th this season in 11 starts, making him an above average player at that position. He’s also got some versatility to play center, where he made...
The Buffalo Bills signed wide receiver Chris Hogan and linebacker Greg Lloyd to their 53-man roster from the team's practice squad. Linebacker Arthur Moats was placed on injured reserve and wide receiver Donald Jones was assigned to the Reserve/Non-Football Illness. Hogan spent the previous six weeks on the Bills' practice squad. An undrafted free agent entered the league...
With the playoffs out of the picture, quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Buffalo Bills believe they still have something important to compete for before the season is over.
With questions raised about his future as well as coach Chan Gailey's, Fitzpatrick can't predict what changes might be coming in January. What he and the team can control is salvaging...
ESPN’s James Walker reports that a source has informed them that the Buffalo Bills have reached an agreement with G Kraig Urbik on four-year deal worth $15 million.
The Bills were reportedly discussing a contract earlier in the day, but managed to keep at it until it was finalized.
Urbik rates as the No. 24 best guard in the league according to Pro Football Focus and also comes...
Buffalo Bills center Eric Wood told Norton in the Morning on 97 Rock (via the Buffalo News) that the Toronto home games are a “joke.”
“I think that Toronto series has turned into pretty much a joke,” Wood said. “I think they started it hoping that we’d have a lot of fan support in Toronto. We have none.
“I mean, it’s a crucial third down for them in the first quarter...
Three serious leg injuries in four NFL seasons.
That’s the luck that Bills center Eric Wood has had during his brief professional career. When he suffered his latest injury against the Jaguars, it led to an article questioning if Wood is, in fact, injury prone.
When the injury was first announced by the team three weeks ago, many expected him to miss the remainder of the season...
Last night, the Buffalo Bills came to an agreement with starting right guard, Kraig Urbik, on a four-year, $15 million deal. Urbik was a waiver wire gem acquired by GM Buddy Nix in the 2010 season after he was a third round draft pick out of Wisconsin by the Pittsburgh Steelers a year earlier. He has made an impact for the Bills, starting 26 games at guard, and also center. With...
Bills receiver Donald Jones is questionable for Sunday's game against Miami with a calf injury after missing Week 15.Fantasy Spin:Jones hasn't done much of late and isn't a factor in most fantasy lineups. T.J. Graham has seen 15 targets over the past two games to rank second on the team behind Stevie Johnson.
The Bills annual “home game” in Toronto takes place this Sunday against Seattle. The Bills are about finished for this season, but they can play spoiler to the 8-5 Seahawks who are battling for a Wildcard spot. Can the Bills do it? Perhaps. As for other predictions, let’s see what the writer’s of Queen City Sports think about this game!
Writer’s Note: Due to unforeseen...
We all knew Buffalo Bills players were not fans of the five-year Toronto Series that saw them play one "home" game a season at Toronto's Rogers Centre.Last season, quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick and safety George Wilson were extremely critical of the atmosphere and lack of home-field advantage, and receiver Stevie Johnson echoed those sentiments last week.This week, one...
