Searcy: Family adds 'fuel to the fire' to up his game

BY DAN BEGNOCHEIn three years with the Buffalo Bills, safety Da'Norris Searcy has been slowly but surely working himself in the starting secondary.After two promising years where his involvement and contributions to the defense grew, Searcy took more than 700 snaps with Mike Pettine's unit in 2013, tallying 3.5 sacks, an interception and even a touchdown.Now coming into his...

My 4 burning questions for Bills Training Camp: #4

Don’t let the title fool you. I’m not happy about blogging about training camp as I have a known disdain for the fake pageantry that leads into the regular season. Yet, even with my dislike for the preseason hype, I still feel a bit lethargic in regards to blogging. Nothing is resonating with me. This has been a pretty taxing offseason for me, probably because of the overkilled...

This will be the case if the online voting ends in a tie and the houseguest numbers do not. Hopefully ties do not happen often… as it’s more fun if you guys get to actually decide!

Buffalo Bills safety Aaron Williams named top-10 in NFL

Typically speaking, sports fans tend to worry about two things – the past and the future. They’ll debate who was the greatest player of all-time, while also spending hours discussing whether or not a rookie is going to be develop into an All-Pro. Both are fun exercises, things that keep fans engaged and the beer flowing at the local tavern. But they miss out on what is most important...

Brandon Spikes, Mike Williams, Chris Williams and Keith Rivers are all good football players and everyone from Erie to Syracuse is excited about the possibilities that Sammy Watkins brings to the Bills offense. However, if the Bills are going to achieve 10+ wins and finally break this maddening...

Analyzing the 2011 Draft: Buffalo Bills

The NFL Draft just concluded, and every team gets a certain grade depending on how good their picks were according to scouts and analysts. There are teams that are deemed “winners” and teams deemed “losers”. Why? Because the society we live in is very impatient. We live in a “what have you done for me lately” kind of world and everybody needs answers immediately. All...

I love when these draft prognosticators, bloggers and experts who hand out draft grades less than a week after Roger Goodell is done at Radio City Music hall. Remember when the Bills drafted OT Mike Williams or QB JP Losman. Remember what was said by the exp[erts after the draft(s)? No? Well I do.

Who will be “that guy” for the Buffalo Bills now?

With the reluctant departure of Stevie Johnson the Buffalo Bills not only lose a great player on the field, but a personality that is almost more important on a team. Being a football player all my life, from Pop Warner days all the way to the collegiate level, there has always been a person on each team that embodies a certain spirit. Sometimes this person can not only capture the...

The Buffalo Bills going 10-6 this year isn’t as crazy as it sounds

What does a good year mean for the Buffalo Bills next season? Well, I am sure the correct answer to that question is a playoff appearance, in any fashion. Looking at the question realistically, this possibility is not that far fetched. Since the Bills’ last playoff appearance in 1999, the best record the team has posted is a mediocre 9-7 (2004). During this 14 year drought the...

Searcy: Fluidity a must in modern day safety game

For the Buffalo Bills draft this year Safety is for the Byrd’s

The Buffalo Bills group at safety is believed  by many to be unsolidified. This could be true, as Jairus Byrd’s departure not only left a huge hole in center field, it also took away the Bills number one defensive playmaker. But maybe it is not as bad as most think. Losing Byrd is one thing that no Bills fan wanted to see, but it was inevitable. Perhaps the quick signing of Aaron...

Buffalo GM Doug Whaley’s grade so far…

Yes, the Bills lost Jairus Byrd. Yes Byrd is widely considered one of the top 3 safeties in the NFL and yes, losing another pro-bowl player going into his prime is frustrating. What Buffalo appears to have is an All-Pro in GM Doug Whaley. Building a winning team is a marathon and not a sprint. You build up the middle on both sides of the ball and you don’t overpay for the players...

So the Bills won’t give Jairus Byrd 9 million per year, but giving Aaron Williams 6.5 million is fine? This makes Aaron Williams the 11th highest paid safety in the NFL in terms of average salary. Williams, a 2011 2nd round pick, was a bust at cornerback in 2011 and 2012, grading out 87th out of 109 eligible cornerbacks in 2011 and 91st out of 113 eligible safeties in 2012. He...
