Found January 30, 2012 on Buffalo Wins:
"I think the long snapper is making more money." (Editor's note: In case you missed, I did a happy review for the Bills 2011 season. Now, welcome to the world is ending review for their season!) During the Bills 2004 season (You know, the one we were one game away from making the playoffs), I was watching a Bills/Browns game at McFaddens in NYC and the Bills were just laying a beat down on them. I forgot the final score, but we beat them like by 30 and we destroyed one of the McCown brothers. So, you'd think that all 150 drunken transplants would be happy, right? WRONG. There was this one older guy, probably in his late 40's, who just wouldn't stop complaining. The Bills would be up by three touchdowns and if they couldn't convert on a third down in the 3rd quarter, he'd start going off about the play calling or the blocking up front. He was sporting a 1988 Bills AFC East Champion sweat shirt and just had this miserable scowl on his face. He w...

Dareus on ESPN2 Monday night

Bills DL Marcell Dareus will be featured in the ESPN series ‘Hey Rookie’ tonight (Monday) on ESPN2. Dareus along with other members of the 2011 NFL draft class will be profiled in the program as film crews followed several of the rookies around during parts of their first NFL season.

Bills still need TE coach

The Bills filled a pair of coaching vacancies Monday on Chan Gailey’s coaching staff, but with Bob Bicknell now coaching the receivers after the departure of Stan Hixon, Buffalo needs a tight ends coach. Bicknell coached the tight ends each of the past two seasons, but in sliding over to coach receivers there’s still one more vacancy coach Gailey needs to fill. That position...

Lee sees double threat in Smith

Bills QBs coach David Lee was largely credited with introducing the Wildcat scheme to the NFL back in 2008 when he was quarterbacks coach with the Miami Dolphins. Now with the Bills, Lee sees an even more dangerous ball handling weapon in Brad Smith than he ever had in Miami. “I’m really glad he’s here,” said Lee of Smith. ”I think the biggest thing is in Miami we ran...

Flo to watch Super Bowl w/troops

Bills CB Drayton Florence is going to be watching Super Bowl XLVI on Sunday with the troops. Florence will be in Honduras with US troops stationed there. He talked about it on ESPN Radio. The interview starts at the 10 minute mark. “I’ll be doing a military tour where we’re traveling to three military bases to boost the morale of the troops a bit,” Florence told Ross Tucker...

In depth: Buffalo Bills

Ryan Fitzpatrick got off to a hot start in 2011 and, in following his lead, so did the Buffalo Bills. Seven games in, the Bills sat at 5-2 and looked to be a real playoff contender. Then Fitzpatrick cooled and the team ran off seven losses in a row. So who are the real Bills? Does Chan Gailey have this team on the right track? Or will Buffalo and the team’s fans struggle to climb...

Bills add two assistants to coaching staff

---The Bills announced the additions of Andrew Dees and Eric Thatcher to the team’s coaching staff.  Dees has been named the assistant offensive line coach and Thatcher will serve as the defensive quality control coach.

Stevie to put end to TD displays

Bills WR Stevie Johnson, who is set to become an unrestricted free agent come mid-March without a new contract agreement with Buffalo, appeared on a Sacramento radio station late last week and said he will not be doing touchdown celebrations moving forward. Appearing on 1140 SportsRadio the FAN in Sacramento, Johnson said the TD displays are behind him now. “Honestly there are...

Chan Gailey confirms Bills switching to 4-3 defense

When the Bills promoted Dave Wannstedt to defensive coordinator, it was expected that they would go to a 4-3 look next season. Head coach Chan Gailey confirmed that move on Monday, although it shouldn’t be too difficult a switch for the team to make. They played a lot of four-man fronts in the second half…

Wannstedt’s defense keeps it simple

Bills defensive coordinator Dave Wannstedt, who is transitioning his unit to a base 4-3 front, has had success on the defensive side of the ball throughout his career because he’s kept things simple and let the talent on his side of the ball just play. It’s an approach that Bills GM Buddy Nix, a former coach whose experience was rooted in defense, subscribes to as well. ...

Extensions for restricteds?

Garrison Sanborn was the first of Buffalo’s three restricted free agents to re-up with the club. The question is will offensive linemen Chad Rinehart and Kraig Urbik also be extended something more than just a qualifying tender offer? As restricted free agents, the club can hold onto your rights as a player by tendering a one-year qualifying offer. Upon signing that offer a player...

Edwards returns to Miami

---On the day the Bills announced hirings and reshuffling on their coaching staff, the Miami Dolphins announced the hirng of one-time Bills DC George Edwards as their linebackers coach. Edwards rejoins the Dolphins after spending the past two years in Buffalo where he was fired by coach Chan Gailey after last season. He coached linebackers for the Dolphins from 2005-09. ---Rodney...
