In the NFL, the third week of the preseason is when starters usually receive their longest in-game action until the regular season begins. With less than two weeks until the final roster cut-down day, here are five Buffalo Bills players to keep an eye on in their preseason tilt against the Minnesota Vikings on Saturday:1) Da'Rick RogersRogers has been underwhelming in both practices and games to this point of the preseason. He has the physical tools to be an asset to the team, but has struggled to make plays while some of his competition (namely Marcus Easley and Chris Hogan) has stood out on tape. How much playing time Rogers receives this week will likely give people a good idea as to whether head coach Doug Marrone believes Rogers is a better fit on the practice squad or the 53-man roster.2) Kevin KolbThe "boo-birds" were out in force in the his debut at Ralph Wilson Stadium, as Kolb struggled in the early-going. With first round pick E.J. Manuel sidelined the rest ...

Safety Jairus Byrd has arrived at the Buffalo Bills' facility, and will travel with the team for its preseason game at Washington on Saturday.

Believe this: Jairus Byrd is not thrilled about returning to the Buffalo Bills on their terms.
There's no reason to doubt Byrd will enjoy playing football or that he'll bring the competitiveness that sent him to two Pro Bowls in his first four seasons. I'll be surprised if Byrd's first comments to reporters don't include flowery remarks about the Bills.

That's right. There's a team even more quarterback-depleted this preseason than the Washington Redskins, who are making do without Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins.

I will never consider myself to be a wordsmith. I'm the stereotype of a venomous message board blogger who can sometimes pull a decent piece out of my ass.
Just a fan who writes incoherently on just raw emotion and not exactly thinking before I type. I don't bother with using $5 words or breaking out the thesaurus to sound smarter than I am. I talk how I write. I write...

It’s only preseason, but teams like the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets are still trying to decide who their starting quarterback will be. E.J. Manuel’s preseason has come to an end, but Kevin Kolb could take advantage of his time. Here’s a look at all the AFC East quarterbacks and how they have performed so far.

WARNING: This is preseason. Preseason football is a scam. It is crap. Don't read into it at all. Even folks in the media know it is crap sandwich, but they have to find something to talk about. Just realize I'm blogging about it because preseason football is better than no football and I'm bored. Also, if you think I'm a hypocrite for blogging about something I...
