TEAMS: Buffalo Bills

The Buffalo Bills are hitting the silver screen! Well, sort of.

According to Deadline,

“Paramount Pictures has acquired Draft Day, a comic script by Rajiv Joseph and Scott Rothman that has Ivan Reitman attached to direct. Reitman will produce under his Montecito banner with Tom Pollock and Ali Bell. The script revolves around the general manager of the Buffalo Bills as he spends the day of the National Football League draft frantically trying to get the number one pick for his struggling team.”

Two things came to mind right away when I heard the news about this film.

  1. This could be awesome
  2. Oh boy, this isn’t good

Now, an explanation for each reason.

The reason that this movie could be really awesome is simple — it could be really awesome. Think about it. Sure, It’s a comedy and it involves the Bills, but it could be one of the funniest movies you ever see. And with Ivan Reitman of Ghostbusters, No Strings Attached, and I Love You, Man fame pegged to direct the flick, it very well could be a fantastic movie.

On the other hand, it could be pretty awful.

Not only can in just be turned into a film that mocks the organization as a whole, it could also mock the city itself. Will they make the people in the Buffalo front office out to look like complete morons who have no idea what they’re doing? Or will they make the fans in Buffalo clammoring for the team to improve look like bumbling idiots.  I guess only time will tell.

What say you? How do you feel about the potential for a Buffalo Bills centered movie? Leave a comment below and let me know!

Buffalo Bills: T.J. Graham Impressing at Minicamp

One day of Bills minicamp down and though we've been hearing about Mark Anderson's dominant play in 11-on-11 drills (he caused numerous incompletions stampeding into the backfield), as well as Steve Johnson's return (he ran routes on about 10 plays, more or less feeling things out again), there was a much better story. T.J. Graham looks good -- really good. At NC...

Buffalo Bills 53-man Roster Projection

Can Ryan Fitzpatrick take the Bills back to the playoffs in 2012? If there was one word used to describe the Buffalo Bills 2011 season it would be turbulent.

Mario Williams buys $2M mansion from jailed lawyer

Now that he's settled in the Buffalo area, Super Mario is putting some of that money to good use. Per the Buffalo...
