BY NICK ST. DENISIn a Buffalo Bills defense that is expected to improve under new coordinator Mike Pettine, cornerback remains a question.New Bills coach Doug Marrone is confident there will be answers sooner than later. (photo: Angelina Purpura, Flickr)âI am (satisfied) with the depth there,â Marrone recently told Buffalobills.com. âI think we have competition there. I think Stephon Gilmore had a great spring camp. Heâs done a really nice job. Iâm looking forward to seeing who that third or fourth corner is."The Bills expect Gilmore, the team's No. 1 corner, to make a big leap in Year 2, but an underwhelming Leodis McKelvin is slated to start on the opposite side."Iâm lookingÂ forward to Leodis coming back," Marrone said.With Aaron Williams moving to safety after struggling at corner, the nickel and dime CB gigs are essentially up for grabs, though general manager Doug Whaley slated third-year cornerback Justin Rogers and second-year DB Ron Brooks as the favorites...
BEST OF MAXIM
Oddly enough I happen to be friends with former CNN news correspondent Larry King, and he was kind enough to send me some thoughts about the Buffalo Bills, in the âNews and Viewsâ Â style of his USA Today column. Here they are:
Are NFL Draft picks getting younger these days, or am I getting older?
Five techniques are good, but for my money nothing beats a good three technique...
The Buffalo Bills Stock Watch (also known as the BUFFALO BILLS STOCK WOOWTCH) is a space for me to talk about some recent news and trends coming out of practices and Bills media. I wonât be writing this every week, but every so often when I feel like we need to check in on some things. These will probably include plenty more actual information and analysis of the team as we get...
Three reasons for concern as the Bills enter the 2013 season:
1. New Offensive Coordinator Nathaniel Hackett
I like the hiring of Doug Marrone as head coach, and I love the hiring of Mike Pettine as defensive coordinator.Â Admittedly though, I am taking a very cautionary approach to new offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett.Â Iâm not saying this is a bad hire.Â Hackett certainly...
It's a two way race in Buffalo between first round rookie E.J. Manuel and veteran addition Kevin Kolb. No fantasy owner should be relying on either one of these quarterbacks. Kolb is a very mediocre and injury prone quarterback, while Manuel could end up not starting. Even if Manuel does start, I'd expect him to have some rough weeks early on. If you have...
Retired Colonel Carl Pfeiffer has followed the Buffalo Bills since the late-70â˛s. Carl recently joined the ranks here at Queen City Sports where heâll be contributing to our Bills coverage. Find Carl on Twitter @BuffaloSomeday.
I love the Bills like one might love an alcoholic uncle.Â Every weekend I invite them over and most Sundayâs they do something that makes me scream...
I want my bust to be here one day JuanâŚ
I didnât realize that Bruce Smith is the godfather to EJ Manuel, so this pic is pretty damn cool from that standpoint.Â Smith was one of the best Buffalo Bills ever and EJ is trying to make his mark.Â I think the rookie has a bright future.

Fantasy Impact: EJ Manuel
BY DAN BEGNOCHEAt 6-foot-7, 260 pounds, tight end Scott Chandler is as reliable (and as deadly) over the middle as any of the Buffalo Bills' receivers. Now he's just trying to prove it to a new signal-caller. In 2011, 65 percent of his 389 receiving yards came in the center of the field, and in 2012, that rate was nearly identical with an increase in receptions and yards...
