Pittsford, NY- One thing fans usually don’t get to see about their favorite NFL teams during training camp, is what goes on behind the scenes. But now with advances in social media, that has been changing recently.
With the creation of Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, and Vine, players are able to capture rare raw behind the scenes moments for fans to enjoy. The Buffalo Bills are no different.
Buffalo Bills rookie wide receiver Robert Woods posted on his Instagram, a video of him and other receivers playing some “meeting room hoops”.
The video shows 7 different Bills players passing a mini-basketball around before dropping it in the hoop. It’s a fun video that shows us the fun side of training camp. Woods isn’t the only Buffalo Bills player, however, having fun with social media.
Bills #1 receiver, Stevie Johnson also posts behind the scene locker room videos on the mico-video site Vine.
But the Buffalo Bills aren’t the only team in the league posting funny videos on social media. The Carolina Panthers’ running backs posted a video of themselves dancing and singing to “Just My Imagination” in a Waffle House.
With these types of fun videos coming out more often, it really gives a fan a better look into NFL locker rooms around the league.

During the second quarter of the Bills’ preseason opener against the Colts, I received a text from a good friend and fellow Oklahoma-grown Bills fan, Marcus. The message simply said:
Goodwin is no joke. He could end up being a great pick even if he never plays a down on offense.
Marcus is right.
There are certain things that get overblown in preseason games. You can’t judge...
The Buffalo Bills came out strong in all facets of the game on Sunday, earning a 44-20 victory over the Indianapolis Colts. The team scored a touchdown on offense, defense and special teams, while winning the turnover battle. Here are 10 thing we took away from the Bills’ performance:
E.J. Manuel looked solid in his first professional game, completing 16-of-21 pass attempts for...
Rookie Buffalo Bills quarterback E.J. Manuel had his chance; now the he'll throw the keys to Kevin Kolb, who was named the starter for their second preseason game against the Minnesota Vikings on Friday night.
As much as the Buffalo Bills want rookie E.J. Manuel to be their starting quarterback this season, they will give veteran Kevin Kolb a fair chance at winning the job by letting him start in this week’s game against the Vikings.

The Buffalo Bills have released reserve punter Brian Stahovich, opening the door for incumbent Shawn Powell to retain his job.
The move was announced before the start of practice at training camp in suburban Rochester on Tuesday. Stahovich was signed by Buffalo in April to compete with Powell.
He was cut two days after the Bills' preseason-opening 44-20 win at Indianapolis...
The Bills practiced under the lights Wednesday. Overall, the practice was pretty light with a lot of special teams work. This morning’s entry will be filled with quick hits and a bit of analysis.
-Both kickers were very accurate and seemed to be trying to hit the cameraman who was up on an elevated lift. File this under the obvious statement category, but Hopkins’ leg is significantly...
Last week, Darnell Dockett gave Arizona Cardinals rookies bad haircuts as part of the annual rookie hazing activities at Cardinals camp. And today, we get to see how a certain rookie is being hazed at Buffalo Bills camp.
That rookie is cornerback Kip Edwards. And after Friday’s practice, Edwards had to endure being taped to a goal post and having ice water poured over his head...
1. Kolb doesn't play in preseason game: Usually when a veteran doesn't play in a preseason game it's not a big deal.In Kevin Kolb's case, it is a pretty big deal. Kolb is in the middle of a quarterback battle with 1st round draft pick EJ Manuel, one in which some would say Kolb is losing.Every time Manuel is on the field and Kolb is on the sideline, Kolb's chances...

BY DAN BEGNOCHEWhile Marquise Goodwin has been impressive throughout offseason workouts and in camp, the rookie is still on the bubble regarding a starting role as a receiver.At the moment, his main shot to contribute will likely be on special teams, for which he proved a valuable commodity Sunday. The former Longhorn tallied 180 yards on two returns, one of which was a 107-yard...
Prior to being named the Buffalo Bills Assistant General Manager/Director of Pro Personnel in 2010, Doug Whaley worked under Pittsburgh Steelers General Manager Kevin Colbert for 12 years in Pittsburgh, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that the newly-named General Manager for the Bills wants to model the Buffalo organization after the Steelers. “Talking to [...]

The Minnesota Vikings travel to Buffalo to take on the Bills Friday night. What can you look for that may help your Fantasy Draft?1. Will E.J. Manuel continue his hot start into the starter's job?Manuel got off too a slow start at Indy on Sunday, but ended up torching the Colts. The Vinking defense historically has not looked good against mobile QBs. Manuel should have an...
When you look at the Bills franchise history, with the exception of the AFL Days and the '90s, it's a sad state of affairs. Inconsistencies galore when it comes to finding the right mix of players, coaches, and GMs, but plenty of consistency when it comes to finding punch lines.
However, if there's one thing the Bills have always been able to find, whether it is with...
