What is the number now?
Ten starting QBs since Jim Kelly retired? It is so funny how spoiled Bills fans from the '90s were. We had year after year of success and I think most fans assumed we'd just dial 1-800-GIVE-US-A-QB and presto, the next Jim Kelly would walk through those doors. In hindsight, I know that sounds like ultra hyperbole, but I remember…
People were begging for Todd Collins to take the reigns as Kelly's better days were long gone. You don't have to cue up the Goo Goo Dolls to know that we haven't come close to better days since Kelly was knocked out of his last game. The list of starters after Jim reads like an endless list of bad “Saw” movies.
But what if..what if EJ Manuel is special? What if he actually ends the trilogy of horror movies we've seen at QB? What if he brings us back to respectability or relevance?
You see, what you just read is exactly how every single Bills post about QBs has read in the last 10 years or at ...

The Buffalo Bills surprised many when they selected EJ Manuel in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft. And even though there are plenty of people who think Manuel’s high draft status means he should start right away, Mike Mayock feels differently. “I think who the guy is Week 1 is less important than what the big picture is,” says Mayock. “From my perspective, you have a...
Bill offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett spelled it out pretty clearly on how the team intends to use running back C.J. Spiller: “We’re going to give him the ball until he throws up."
The Bills have many players that have garnered consideration in the past, but there are three players that should be inducted because of their importance, not only to the Bills, but also to the rest of the league. While it is likely that only one of the players on this list will get in (without the help of the senior committee), each of these players deserves consideration,...
Heading into his fourth season CJ Spiller finally resides atop the Buffalo Bills’ depth chart. Make no mistake, Fred Jackson has been an effective contributor for the Bills when healthy, but his presence has kept Spiller from reaching his true fantasy potential. With Chan Gailey ousted the expectation is that Doug Marrone is ready to unleash Spiller. For reasons that many had trouble...
Owen Good of Kotaku posted an interesting tidbit today: buying the anniversary edition of this year’s Madden is the cheapest way to watch the NFL. Presumably Good means ALL of the NFL games, because you can watch a healthy 3 or 4 games a week over free local airwaves. But for WNY fans of the Buffalo Bills who don’t attend every home game, there is a potential game changing easter...
The coaches and players have been speaking highly of rookie first round draft pick E.J. Manuel. The fans are excited to see what he can bring to the table. The experts pinned him as a developmental quarterback who appeared indecisive at times. Well, mandatory training camp is officially underway in Western New York and the coaching staff and players couldn’t be any happier about...
The Buffalo Bills have been without quarterback Kevin Kolb since he suffered a freak knee injury this weekend slipping on a rubber mat while walking from one practice field to another. There was initially concern regarding the severity of the injury, but it appears Kolb will be back with the Bills sooner than later. In fact, head coach Doug Marrone told reporters -- including Chris...
Bills offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett is a smart man, he knows who they have to give the ball to. He told reporters that they plan on giving running back C.J. Spiller the ball “until he throws up.”
“It’s real simple,” Hackett said, via The Buffalo News. “We’re going to give him the ball until he throws up. So he’s either got to tap out or throw up on the...
C.J. Spiller had better get his conditioning in during camp. He’s going to be doing a whole lot of running this season.
“It’s real simple,” Bills offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett told WGR’s The Howard and Simon Show on Wednesday. “We’re going to give him the ball until he throws up. So he’s either got to tap out or throw up on the field. Let’s just put it...
C.J. Spiller really burst onto the scene with a breakout 2012 campaign in his third year for the Buffalo Bills, rushing for 1,244 yards and six scores on 207 carries (6.0 YPC) with 43 receptions for 459 yards and two TDs through 16 games (nine starts). The 5-11, 200-pound speedster just turned this 26-years-old this week and looks to take on a more significant role in the Bills’...
Former Buffalo Bills wide receiver Donald Jones is retiring from the NFL due to a kidney disease that Jones has suffered from his “entire life.”
Jones announced his decision via his twitter account:
“As some of you may know, I have been suffering from a kidney disease throughout my entire life. As a result of recent advances in my disease, I am no longer able to pursue my career...
Definition of RELEVANCE:
1 – a : relation to the matter at hand
b : practical and especially social applicability : pertinence
If you are a first time reader of the Return to Relevance series, I’ll bring you up to speed faster than Chan Gailey can switch base defensive fronts; relevancy in the NFL is defined as postseason play. By that logic, the Buffalo Bills have not fielded...

Penfield, NY- One of the biggest frustrations with the Buffalo Bills offense last year under former head coach, Chan Gailey was the misuse of stud running back CJ Spiller. Spiller touched the ball 250 touches last year, 207 rushes and 43 receptions. Spiller averaged 6.0 yards per carry and 10.7 yards per reception. Looks like new offensive...
