I’m the Bills GM for the 2015 season-Trades/Free agency/Cuts/Draft

Yes, ladies. That’s my face and I am totally the sexiest GM in the NFL. Now am I the smartest? Probably not. This is the fourth time I’ve played Bills GM.

WATCH: NFL Refs celebrate touchdown scored against Buffalo Bills with fist bump

What on earth is going on here? That’s Denver Broncos running back C.J. Anderson scoring a touchdown this past week against the Buffalo Bills, and unless I’m tripping out that’s the referees fist bumping after the play is over. So what’s the deal? Buffalo safety Aaron Williams noticed the fist bump and earlier this week called the NFL out on it, saying that the Bills can’t...

Bills focus forward following 4th-quarter meltdown

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) Bills safety Aaron Williams prefers looking ahead to a short week and Buffalo's game at Miami on Thursday rather than spend time dwelling on the team's fourth-quarter meltdown on Sunday. It won't be easy, Williams said Monday. ''It lingers bad,'' he said, referring to how Buffalo squandered a 10-point lead in a 17-13 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. ''That...

BY DAN BEGNOCHENow officially halfway through the season, the Buffalo' Bills defense is looking pretty good.Following their best effort since 2007, questions were abound this season as Mike Pettine's departure for Cleveland at the end of last year opened the door for the more traditional style of defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz.

Are the Bills for real or not (and other things)

Breaking news: You can be happy about your team and critical of your team at the same time. Was I happy with the Bills on Sunday? Of course. Do I still think the offense needs to improve? Yes.  You can’t have 9 drives that resulted in only four plays or fewer. The Bills scored a lot of points because the Jets are a tire fire and when they face better competition – which is...

''It was a boneheaded play,'' Watkins said Monday, a day after he pulled up early and raised his arm before being tackled from behind 5 yards short of the end zone. ''Next time, I'll run full speed through the goal and score.'' The play, in Buffalo's otherwise dominating...

Three things the Buffalo Bills need to do to get back on track

The Buffalo Bills are sitting in a rather bitter state at an even .500 six weeks into the season. Bitter might be a surprising term for some Bills fans, as many may believe that 3-3 is a pretty good spot for a Bills team that has a pretty difficult opening schedule, but a close loss to a beatable Texans team and yet another loss to the dreadful Patriots have Doug Marrone and company...

Predictions: BUF Vs. HOU by @nickelcitybills @fgif @RdotDeuce and a cast of 1000s

Joe @Buffalowins- I am a bit sick as I write this, so, excuse me briefness. I think when you look at both teams, they are kind of built the same. The both have solid defenses and running games, but the QB is the question mark. We all know what the Texans have with Fitz. If you get pressure on him (PFF has him with a QB rating of 27.3 when you get guys in his face), he’s going...
