The Kirk Morrisons of the world certainly stick together. And there will be two of them meeting for the first time and wearing Morrison No. 58 Bills jerseys at Ralph Wilson Stadium on Sunday, when Buffalo (5-2) hosts the New York Jets (4-3) in a midseason AFC East showdown. ''I'm pumped up about it,'' Kirk Morrison, the Bills linebacker said. ''It's always nice to meet another Kirk Morrison,'' added Kirk Morrison, a 20-year-old marketing major from University of Regina in Canada's prairie province of Saskatchewan. It's a unique meeting brought on by Twitter. Before signing with the Bills in late August, Morrison was a free agent and aware he was going to be switching teams for the third time in seven NFL seasons. And with the change of teams, he also knew he would likely be switching numbers after wearing 52 during five seasons in Oakland and 55 Jacksonville last year.

An Open Letter to Ralph Wilson Regarding Fred Jackson

Dear Mr. Wilson, Fred Jackson of the Buffalo Bills is hard-working, determined and never gives up to achieve his goal.

WR Jones goes full

Bills WR Donald Jones was full go at practice Thursday a day after being limited in practice. Head coach Chan Gailey was encouraged by the receiver’s progress. “He’s looked a lot better,” said Gailey. ”He’s done everything in practice. I can tell he’s not 100 percent so we’ll see, he may get to play on Sunday.” Jones has been anxious to return after missing the...

Rex references '64 Bills

Jets coach Rex Ryan went way back today in complimenting the Bills' defensive front, particularly rookie defensive lineman Marcell Dareus. Said Ryan: "Dareus reminds me ... the way he's playing and the way Big Wiggle as I used to call him is playing - Dwan Edwards - they remind me of Ron McDole and Tom Sestak, the No. 70 that used to play in the AFL days." The...

New York Jets vs. Buffalo Bills: An Intriguing Match.

Many fans, analysts, and columnists saw the Buffalo Bills as a mediocre team at best searching hard for the next decade to reach .500. Here we are past the halfway point of the season and the resurgent Bills will likely be neck and neck with the New England Patriots for the division title. This is a considerable comparison to the 2008 Miami Dolphins. Can the Bills sustain...

Three Things: Buffalo Bills

Its strange to write about the Jets heading to lovely Western New York trying to unseat the 1st place Bills. I don’t think words like that have been laid to paper in well over a decade. But nonetheless, the Jets head to Ralph Wilson stadium to try and take down the 5-2 Bills, while rooting for the cross-town Giants to hand the 5-2 Patriots their second loss in as many weeks. With...
