Start the ticker-tape parade and drop confetti from the rooftops people! It’s May 25th and I’m ready to make a declaration: The Bills won the off-season. Talking heads in the NFL have given the Bills a lot of love this off-season and the only other team getting more praise seems to be the Broncos. That being said, I think the Bills topped everyone when you look at everything they did. They gave their top two offensive players new contracts, signed the biggest defensive name available on the market in their greatest area of concern, and seemed to have an outstanding draft. Talk to most Bills fans and they believe the Bills have a legitimate chance to make the playoffs this season. I tend to agree, but I do have my worries. Here are my top three worries (in no particular order) entering the 2012-2013 season.
1. The Brutal Early Season Schedule
@Jets, Chiefs, @Browns, Patriots, @49ers, @Cardinals, Titans, @Texans, @Patriots
After the first ten weeks we’ll have a great idea of ...

When the Buffalo Bills drafted Zebrie Sanders chances were you knew who he was, but just didn't realize it. Remember that viral YouTube video where the offensive lineman just sat there in his stance as the play continued? Yep, that was Sanders. Now he is all grown up and was a four-year starter for the Florida State Seminoles. He capped off his career by earning first team All...
Chris Brown posted a story on the official Bills blog the other day that flew under the radar but could wind up being pretty important: Apparently Terrence McGee isn’t sure if he’ll be back for camp.
McGee is still rehabing from knee surgery that ended his 2012 season, and said while he can perform all the required “football moves,” he still hasn’t made it to OTA speed...
It’s all over the place that the Buffalo Bills are on the verge of extending the infamous “Bills in Toronto” series through 2017. The Bills won’t make out nearly as well as they did on the first 5 games of the series, which will correspond with cheaper ticket prices.
The last deal netted 78 million for Buffalo, which was great compared to the estimated 35 million in revenue...
In the sixth installment of my “Predicting the Bills’ breakout players of 2012″ series, I’ll take a look at cornerback Aaron Williams.
The Buffalo Bills selected Aaron Williams out of Texas with the No. 34 overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, despite concerns regarding whether he was better fit as a safety or at cornerback. Buddy Nix & Co. didn’t mind the nitpicking...
If you don’t already make a habit of reading Chris Brown’s Fan Friday post over on the mothership, you really should. Chris answers questions in a mailbag format, and almost always leaves you with a little bit better understanding of how the Buffalo Bills roster is going to shake out. Let’s see what we have this week.
-First up, in a response to a question about where front...
According to a blurb over at USA Today, Buffalo Bills wide receiver David Clowney tweeted his HIV test result earlier today. Clowney was pleased to share that he tested negative; “Got My HIV Results Back!! Thank God for keeping my body healthy and safe,” he said on his page.
At first glance, one might wonder why in the world he would do such a thing. But Clowney...
Fully aware that Kill Kill Kill has been decidedly lion-heavy of late, but I insist you place the blame on YouTube users. I’m trying to find kill videos that don’t already have 12 million views, but the preponderance of animal death videos being posted lately are either strictly lions killing things or some deceptively titled trolling like “DOG SAVAGELY MURDERS CAT” that...
The Buffalo Bills made a lot of moves this offseasons, most notably upgrading their defense with the additions of Mario Williams and Mark Anderson. They signed quarterback Vince Young as well to back up Ryan Fitzpatrick as well. However, despite being deep at almost every position across the board, there are still some additions that could be made to improve the roster, especially...
There are few times I feel compelled to let my betting picks be known and this is one of them. I don’t (hope) think this will reach enough people to move the line and as an active contributor to the site, I think it’s my duty to write this blog. Ok, enough of the sappy stuff.
Each week I write a football column here called "Payne’s Perspective" that you can find...
Buffalo Bills quarterback didn't get much love in a recent NFL.com ranking of the league's top quarterbacks, coming in at No. 24 out of 32 on the list.
The ranking said of Fitz:
"Look at his stats and you see a late-career bloomer. Look at his stats after his first 16 NFL games and you see why he's rounding out the bottom third. Defensive coordinators know...
