Found March 14, 2013 on Kissing Suzy Kolber:
It’s not as though linebacker Manny Lawson hasn’t experienced his share of losing in his NFL career. After being drafted in the first round by the 49ers in 2006 draft, he spent five less-than-triumphant seasons in San Francisco before departing just as Jim Harbaugh arrived to turn the franchise back into a contender. He has, however, spent the last two years in Cincinnati, a team that has afforded him the privilege of twice being part of a team that qualified the playoffs only to be quickly dispatched. On Wednesday, Lawson signed a four-year contract with the Buffalo Bills. Anyone even loosely familiar with the NFL would know that means there’s agreeing to enduring more years of team hardship. But Lawson was apparently unfamiliar with just how bad things have been for his new team. Under his introductory press conference in Buffalo, someone mentioned that it’s been 13 years since the team has made the playoffs, a fact to which Lawson had been unaware. “No sir, that’s a very interest...

How Does Manny Lawson Fit into the Buffalo Bills Defense?

The Bills made their first splash (any time you sign a player in free agency, it’s always a SPLASH) of the 2013 NFL offseason by bringing in LB Manny Lawson, leaving the Buffalo Bills Tank Tyler away from having each member of the 2005 NC State Defensive line under contract at some point or another. Speaking of which, I wonder if Mario Williams had anything to do with signing....

Buffalo Bills sign free-agent LB Manny Lawson

The Buffalo Bills began addressing their needs at linebacker by signing free-agent Manny Lawson to a four-year contract on Wednesday. The signing was the Bills' first addition since the NFL's free agency period opened a day earlier. Lawson fills a big need for a defense that is going through a transition under new coach Doug Marrone, who was hired in January after Chan Gailey...

Are the Buffalo Bills Winning or Losing Free Agency?

The NFL’s offseason has grown in magnitude to the point where it is an event bigger than most (every?) other sports’ regular season. Do you know who leads the NHL in goals? Unless you’re reading this from Canada, probably not. But we all know that the 34th receiver in yards last year just signed with the Dolphins. The NFL has pulled off this wonderful magic trick that allows...

Buffalo Bills Sign LB Manny Lawson

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...

Two NFL GMs get tricked by pranksters into discussing free agency over the phone while being recorded

So this might be a prank for the ages. What happens when pranksters decide to phone two NFL GM’s and record their conversation right before NFL free agency kicks off??  Buffalo Bills GM Buddy Nix and Tampa Bay Bucs GM Mark Dominik are the marks, check out the details: On Friday afternoon, Buffalo GM Buddy Nix and Tampa Bay GM Mark Dominik shot the **** for about six minutes...

Raiders considering giving Vince Young a workout?

Vince Young has been hoping to make his way back to the NFL. Some might find this hilarious because when we last saw him he was fat, broke and out of a job after embarrassingly being beaten on the Bills depth chart by Ryan Fitzpatrick and Tarvaris Jackson. If you thought Young was done as an NFL quarterback, you clearly don’t know the Raiders. Oakland is reportedly considering...

Buffalo Bills Great Andre Reed Interview

2013 NFL Mock Draft: Buffalo Bills Pre-Draft Strategy

2012 Season SummaryThe Buffalo Bills had a disappointing 2012 season. Hell, let's be honest, Buffalo has been disappointing since the start of this century. Since 2000 they are a combined 82-126 with only one winning season (2004 they had a 9-7 record), and no playoff appearances since 1999.At the start of the 2012 season expectations were high. Buffalo improved from a dastardly...

Ryan Fitzpatrick prepared to 'swallow my pride,' take backup role

A year and a half ago, the Buffalo Bills handed Ryan Fitzpatrick a big ol' contract extension, giving him the keys to take the wheel and fully own the offense.Early in the 2013 offseason, Fitzpatrick would just be happy for a team to let him in the back seat. The potential the Bills thought they had in the journeyman signal-caller never materialized, and Buffalo's new regime...

What’s wrong with us that we’re so unamused?

Photo property of Getty Images The incredible outcry from every direction about the Buffalo Bills’ re-signing of Leodis McKelvin is deafening. It’s also entirely expected, as any move this team had made with him would have been. They can’t win; people find it in themselves to demolish them no matter what they may do. They bring back McKelvin for four years but give...
