One more year, Chan.What if?It’s a question that’s probably not a healthy one to ask when thinking about the past. You can drive yourself insane thinking, “If I had just done this differently, everything would have been better!”Sadly, it’s hard to not to play that game. You’ll always wonder what could have been.Such is the case with the 2011 Buffalo Bills. It was a season that had so much promise before everything went totally wrong. This will always be a season of “What if?”What if…Most of the decent players on this team didn’t get hurt?Fred Jackson, Eric Wood, Shawne Merriman, Kyle Williams, Terrence McGee, George Wilson, Demetrius Bell…If you were to make a list of Buffalo’s most “important/productive/talented” players, these guys would probably all be in the top ten. Basically every single player that Buffalo really needed to stay healthy (other than Ryan Fitzpatrick) ended up getting hurt.

He’ll be left tackle.” Just how much action Bell sees is unclear, but it’s obvious...

Finish strong the mantra now

Ending a five-game losing streak is naturally the first order of business for the Bills as they head to San Diego this weekend. If they can do that the players know it’s step one toward achieving what is quickly becoming the primary goal for the team. Head coach Chan Gailey said on Monday that there’s a sense of urgency to get that accomplished with four games to play. “You...

Rinehart just nicked

Starting RG Chad Rinehart did not practice on Friday, but it’s nothing that has Buffalo’s offensive staff overly concerned. “Rinehart just tweaked something in his shoulder and we held him out,” said head coach Chan Gailey after Friday’s practice. ”We don’t think it’ll be an issue at all on Sunday.” Rinehart has manned the right guard spot ever since Kraig Urbik...

Bills safeties look good for Sun.

Buffalo’s starting safety tandem of George Wilson and Jairus Byrd are looking good for Sunday’s game in San Diego with both of them practicing fully on Thursday. “I think we’ve got a good chance to have them,” said head coach Chan Gailey. “George practiced fully today and Jairus was full practice.” If Wilson starts on Sunday it’ll be his first action since the Dallas...

Still hope for CB Williams

Bills rookie CB Aaron Williams has not practiced at all this week after sustaining a knee injury in last week’s game, but head coach Chan Gailey is holding out hope that Williams might come around in the next day or so. “Aaron didn’t practice (Friday), but we didn’t want to list him out,” said Gailey. ”He’s still got a chance if things go well tonight and tomorrow...
