PLAYERS: E.J. Manuel
TEAMS: Buffalo Bills
The Buffalo Bills are so upset with their 2013 schedule that they decided to complain about it on BuffaloBills.com. Assembling an NFL schedule with 32 teams, bye weeks and at least one prime time appearance for every club is no easy task. The painstaking work in crafting a schedule that works has been well documented. However, since the league instituted the 13-week Thursday night prime time schedule in 2012 there are a handful of teams that have been handed a big disadvantage in terms of preparation time for their next opponent.   Almost every NFL club now appears on the Thursday night schedule in a given season. Those that don’t are on Sunday or Monday night. Coupled with those alternative game dates appears to be a perception that the shortened weeks on the front end for Thursday night participants or the extra rest for players and prep time for coaching staffs for the game that follows will even out.

  • Why are the Bills complaining about the schedule, it's not like they are a contender. They have a zero chance of making the playoffs so why do they even care about the schedule. Just mark them down for LAST place in the division. Nothing has changed, the Bills will be in the basement again. Same old, same old. The Bills S,U,C,K, !!

Can We Expect the Same Old Buffalo Bills in 2013

  ‘The Music City Miracle,’ 1999, the last playoff game the Buffalo Bills were a part of.

Bills see Brad Smith as a wide receiver

The Bills are looking to Brad Smith to play as a wide receiver. The Bills coaching staff have him working exclusively at wide receiver, he’s not been asked to take one rep at quarterback.

Source: Jairus Byrd In Town

Queen City Sports has learned that Buffalo Bills free agent safety Jairus Byrd is in Buffalo. The reason for his visit is unknown at this time, but, according to the source, he did have paperwork in his hand. One could venture to guess that he is in town for contract discussions.

Bills QB Competition is Open, But Not Even

Since the coronation as franchise savior drafting of QB EJ Manuel by the Buffalo Bills, one of the most talked about stories heading into camp has been whether Manuel will start week 1, or if Head Coach Doug Marrone (HCDM, for short) will turn to grizzled vet Kevin Kolb to minimize his own growing pains as a brand new head football coach.

Inside the Buffalo Bills Playbook: Zone Blocking

We’ve talked a little bit about some of the passing concepts that Doug Marrone and Nathaniel Hackett’s offense will utilize. However, both of the coaches have said the Buffalo Bills will be a run first offense, which is consistent with the duo’s time in Syracuse, where they ran more than they threw the ball (also, it’s hard to argue with run first logic when you have CJ Spiller...
