Found March 12, 2013 on FF Locker Room:
Scott Chandler, TE, Buffalo Bills Player Profile Height/Weight: 6-7/260 Birthdate: 7/23/1985 School: Iowa FANTASY FOOTBALL ANALYSIS It took six seasons and his third with the Buffalo Bills, but tight end Scott Chandler finally had a season in the NFL that he can tell his grandkids about and be proud. Chiming in with 43 receptions for 571  yards and 6 touchdowns, Chandler caught the eye of many fantasy football enthusiasts. There are a few sticky points with the former Iowa product though. The first being that 4 of his 6 touchdowns came in the first four weeks of the year. The second is that he is recovering from ACL surgery on his knee and there is an outside chance that he may not be ready when the 2013 season kicks off. Watch him closely as the Bills receiving options aren’t the greatest, therefore when Chandler is suited up he definitely becomes a favorite target of Ryan Fitzpatrick. And by the way, that is the other thing. There is no guarantee that Fitzpatrick will have his job...

Bills' Williams donates cars to Houston police

A year ago, Mario Williams left Houston to play in Buffalo. It ended a vaguely strained six-year relationship with the city of Houston. The Texans drafted Williams, a defensive end, instead of Vince Young and Reggie Bush, which was an unpopular decision at the time. And then Williams set out being one of those guys who plays well (a two-time All Pro) but always leaves you wondering...

My ode to Ryan Fitzpatrick

I wrote a piece yesterday about loyalty and Ryan Fitzpatrick's decision to stay in Buffalo. I was hoping for his sake, Ryan would have seen loyalty as a reason to stay in the place that gave him his first shot. Yeah, I'm not going to lie, I'm so bummed out about Buffalo sports these days that I'm just looking for a corny happy ending for someone - anyone -  at this...

2013 NFL Free Agency Liveblog

Quite a bit has happened since we last posted… this morning. Buddy got duped, Fitz got whacked (so much more fun to say WHACKED than released), Levitre’s gone, and so much more. To make it up, we will be covering the opening night of  2013 NFL Free Agency with a liveblog. Sniper’s running a google doc to keep you updated with the signings as they happen, and I’ll provide...

The Fitzmagic Is Gone

There’s no finer way for the Ryan Fitzpatrick era to end in Buffalo than to have his release tipped by a Buddy Nix phone conversation that was prompted by a prank. Great success all around for Fitzmagic and for the Bills. A shame that Kevin Costner won’t get to act this out in that movie that was once about the Bills but is now about the Browns. Let’s try to remember the good...
