Not since 2003, when the New York Giants' Michael Strahan registered 18.5 quarterback takedowns, has a defender who played predominantly on the strong side led the NFL in sacks. But a Sunday report from old friend Dan Pompei of the National Football Post, indicating that Mario Williams has requested to play left end with his new team, the Buffalo Bills, reminded of the trending reality that pass-rushers are lining up all over the place anymore. Including on the left side. "Things have changed a little bit (in that regard)," agreed Denver coach John Fox. "The rush doesn't always come from the right side, like it used to. People are getting lots of pressure anymore from the (left) side as well." Fox should know. His prize rookie, Von Miller, played primarily on the strong side, rushing generally from the left edge of the defense, in 2011. The league's reigning defensive rookie of the year, Aldon Smith of San Francisco produced some of his 14 s...

Mario Williams Will Wear 94 for Buffalo

Mario Williams is going to wear 94, making him the second consecutive Buffalo Bills Defensive End that’s better than decent to wear the number. Apparently Williams is attempting to taking the “under promise/over deliver” approach in which Bills sack artist he emulates. Meaning, rather than taking a run at the league’s all time sack leader by wearing 78, Mario is signaling...

Bills WR David Clowney tweets HIV test results

Upon entering the league as a fifth-round pick in 2007, David Clowney has bounced around the NFL, with stops in New York, Carolina, and, currently, Buffalo. He’s had a nondescript career, mostly as a practice squad-type receiver, hauling in just 22 total receptions. Well, the 25-year-old finally made headlines — and it had absolutely nothing to do with football. On Tuesday...

Fred Jackson: Player profile

Fred Jackson of the Buffalo Bills is hard-working, determined and never gives up to achieve his goal. He is the ultimate underdog and the same can be said about the Buffalo Bills organization. The once proud franchise and winner of four consecutive AFC Championships continues to be determined to get back to their glory days. Fred Jackson is a key part of that equation.

Bills’ Shawne Merriman in “outstanding” shape

There was a time when Shawne Merriman was one of the most feared pass rushers in the league. From 2005-2007, he had 39.5 sacks in 3 seasons and won Defensive Player of the Year. However, since then, he’s struggled mightily with injuries and has managed just 5 sacks. He appeared on the verge of a comeback last year after a strong preseason, but managed just 1 sack in 5 games before...

Grading the Buffalo Bills – 1997 Draft

Over the next couple summer months, this guy (I/me/BroJ) will be examining the recent Buffalo Bills’ rookie drafts under a microscope. I will be grading every pick and every Bills draft class of the last 15 years. Why 15 years, you ask? Well, in all honesty, that’s pretty much all I can remember. Although my knowledge of Bills history is slightly handicapped by age (full disclosure...

How Buffalo Bills Make The Playoffs: Part 1

The Buffalo Bills have been the center of a lot of talk this offseason.

They brought in Mario Williams to shore up the pass rush (paying...

Bills' ticket sales looking promising

Buffalo is a small market, and everyone knows it. The Bills are able to fill Ralph Wilson Stadium, and they know their market can support an NFL team. It has for years, but over the past decade, the Bills have faced an increasing difficulty in filling their stadium while putting mediocre teams on the field. The best way to sell tickets is to win games. The second best way is to...

Bills to play in Toronto through 2017

Getty Images According to Albert Breer of the NFL Network, the NFL’s international committee has approved a five-year extension in order for the Buffalo Bills to continue playing regular season games in Toronto, Canada.  The extension will take them through 2017. I think it’s great for the NFL that they can play games in Canada, but overall it’s not good for the Bills to take...

Will Vince Young get a shot in Buffalo?

Why is Vince Young in Buffalo? There could be many possibilities why Vince Young was signed to a one year deal on May 11th, but what is the real reason?
