The Bills defense last year was by all means the last of our problems as the team brought in Alan Branch and Jerry Hughes who both performed above exceptions for most Bills fans.

Q&A about Alan Branch from both a Cards and Hawks writer

Yeah, I don't know much about Alan Branch. I've heard all the stuff about how he fits the hybrid defense and adds a lot of depth. I could try and lie and pretend to know who this guy is, but I don't play that way. Instead, I decided to ask someone who has covered him to find out what the deal is with him.
