Citing a source, ESPN's James Walker is reporting that the Buffalo Bills have approached the representation for impending free agent safety Jairus Byrd about hammering out a new contract between the two sides.
Byrd, 26, is enjoying a Pro Bowl caliber campaign in his fourth season as a former second-round pick out of Oregon. In 57 career games, Byrd has amassed 17 interceptions (nine of which came as a rookie, and four of which have come this season) as well as nine forced fumbles, five fumble recoveries, two touchdowns and two sacks. As of Wednesday, Byrd ranked second in the AFC in Pro Bowl voting amongst free safeties, trailing only Ed Reed of Baltimore. Source: SBNation.com Attached Thumbnails

Former Seattle Seahawks quarterback Tarvaris Jackson now languishes in Buffalo, twiddling his thumbs as he thinks of happier times.
He was Seattle's starting QB just last year. Then they unceremoniously dumped him to the curb when they drafted Russel Wilson and picked up free agent Matt Flynn. “It’s been a different season for me,” Jackson told Sal Maiorana of the Democrat...
Ignoring the alliteration of the title of this article, we were approached this week, as sometimes happens, by Bloguin's own Bills blogger, "Joe," for a Q&A. So, we exchanged some questions, and the following is his answers. You can find my answers to his thought provoking questions here. Enjoy.

For the first time in almost three full seasons, I’m missing a game on Sunday. I’ve got a nasty sinus infection and frankly, even if I’m in tip-top shape by the time Sunday morning rolls around I don’t feel like sitting around in the rain for half the day watching those assholes frustrate me even more. If the team...

When blacked out Bills games roll around it becomes very difficult to stay vested in their success. Considering that Sunday’s game along with the St. Louis and Jets games are likely to be blacked out, I’m pretty sure my Sundays are going to be free.

The Jacksonville Jaguars will play against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday at Ralph Wilson Stadium. Neither team is in the playoff hunt but both are already experimenting for next season.
Jacksonville seems to have resigned from seeing Blaine Gabbard (injured, demoted) as a cornerstone of their future. They will continue to play Chad Henne the rest of the way as they attempt to see if...

Nick's take: The Jaguars have given up 14 rushing touchdowns so far this season and have surrendered 136 yards a game to opposing running backs. That should spell a big day for Buffalo running back C.J. Spiller, and...

One of the most powerful trends in betting is known as the six and six trend, meaning teams who finished with 6 wins or fewer are 23-64 ATS as favorites of 6 or more since 2002. There are two issues with this trend. One, it’s very rare (it only happened 4 times all last season, going 0-4 ATS). Two, it’s even rarer that a situation...
