Found December 29, 2012 on AFC East Daily:
Though the outcome of Sunday’s matchup against the New York Jets may be uncertain, personnel changes in the offseason are looking more and more absolute for the Buffalo Bills. After a number of additions this past offseason boasted expectations of a strong season to come, those hopes fell flat with inconsistent play and a plague of injuries across the board. As the losses have piled up, so has the blame, and it’s been placed on nearly every facet of the team at one time or another.Buffalo's leadership trio -- the general manager, coach and quarterback -- have absorbed much of the heat.Chan GaileyBuffalo’s third-year coach can’t plead the Fifth forever regarding his future, and he may have to speak up about it sooner than he thinks. Gailey has hit double-digit losses all three years as coach of the Bills; former coach Dick Jauron was booed out under similar circumstances. Unfortunately for Gailey, he also has to deal with the backlash from the offensive play-calling responsibilit...

Buffalo ready to clean house from front office to team

The Buddy Nix and Chan Gailey era in Buffalo seems to have run its course. Reports are that both will be let go within the next week.  Bills sources indicated the decision on the team's top two football men lies with owner Ralph C.

Bills show Jets how to properly use the wildcat

Brad Smith took his moment and reminded his former team how to play the wildcat offense. While fans in Buffalo chanted “Tebow-Tebow” it’s safe to say the Bills ran the wildcat better this season than the Jets. Brought in to play the wildcat, Tim Tebow was ineffective and was nothing like the former Jets star who now plays for the Bills. There is no question that after two...

2013 NFL Regular Season Schedule: Buffalo Bills

The 2012 NFL season has been filled with disappointment for the Buffalo Bills. Now that the regular season is over, the Bills will be looking ahead to free agency, the 2013 NFL Draft and the 2013 regular season. The Bills were a trendy pick to reach the playoffs at the start of the 2012 season but their season unraveled, and lost seven of their last nine heading into week 17. The...

Bills snap three-game skid with win

C.J. Spiller scored on a 66-yard catch and run in helping the under-achieving Buffalo Bills end their season with a 28-9 win over the New York Jets on Sunday. Safety Bryan Scott also returned an interception 20 yards for a touchdown for the Bills (6-10), who snapped a three-game skid. Both AFC East rivals had already been eliminated from playoff contention. Despite the win, the...

My ode to Chan Gailey

If you were to pick the apex for Chan Gailey's tenure in Buffalo..what would it be? You'd probably pick the Pats win last year, wouldn't you? God, that seems so long ago. A dream...that we thought would springboard us into contention. Alas, it was nothing more than a trick. However, I think of that game being Fitz's best moment, so, I'll save it for when I...

True or False: Bills/Jets Edition

As 2012 comes to an end, I look at the Buffalo Bills season as one that was lost. Their schedule was more challenging than expected, but the team still had the potential to win 9-10 games. Unfortunately poor coaching and quarterback play, as well as an inconsistent defense cost the Bills any chance they had of returning to the postseason. I’ve enjoyed this article and I’m sure...

Bills honor fallen firefighters with decal

The Buffalo Bills affixed a ''WWFD'' decal on the back of their helmets for Sunday's game against the New York Jets to honor two fallen West Webster volunteer firefighters.

Week 17 AFC East game picks: Jets at Bills

Lead writer Nick St. Denis and AFC East Daily contributors Dan Begnoche and Sean Donovan pick the New York Jets' AFC East road contest with the Buffalo Bills. Nick's take: There once was a game this season that saw Mark Sanchez throw three touchdowns and complete over 70 percent of his passes -- Week 1 against the Bills. Sanchez has fallen quite hard since then but gets the...

New York Jets at Buffalo Bills: Week 17 NFL Pick

New York Jets (6-9) at Buffalo Bills (5-10) Aside from this being a divisional matchup, this is a completely meaningless game for these two teams. Both are out of the playoffs by a long shot and both could easily have new Head Coaches and starting quarterbacks next season. I don’t like to make big plays on games involving two teams completely out of the playoff race. There’s...

Gameday Deciding Factors: Jets at Bills

It's hard to know exactly what this game means to New York Jets (6-9) and Buffalo Bills (10-5) coaches and players. Pride? A last-gasp effort to prove worth before getting fired? Just staying healthy?No matter how you slice it, both teams look to put their respective tumultuous seasons to rest. The Jets blew out the Bills 48-28 in Week 1, but a 17-week gap and lots of misery...
