Remembering Fred Smerlas and what might have been…

This week I want to trot out one of my crazy theories and it involves one Fred Smerlas. I have tossed and turned for almost two decades now over this one. I have Super Bowl XXV on tape and I have watched this game like it is the Zapruder film and here is my theory: 1. Fred Smerlas was born to be a nose tackle. 2. Fred got caught up in the Bickering Bills mess of 1989 and Marv Levy...

I Feel You, Russ

Let’s all take a deep breath and take a peek, shall we? It’s now the 2013 Buffalo Bills. Is it under the stewardship of Marv Levy?
