Buffalo Bills: Why Brian Moorman should be nervous

While the kicking game might not be the most glamorous part of football – some wish it were not even a part at all – it is an important part of the game in terms of field position, salvaging points at the end of a drive, etc. For the Buffalo Bills, a mixup could take place in the near future at the punter position. 13-year veteran Brian Moorman has been with Buffalo off-and-on...

Buffalo’s best special teams’ player not named Tasker

I was asked to write about the best punter or kicker that was ever drafted by the Bills.

Buffalo Bills history of drafting punters and kickers has been just awful

While looking at the Bills’ all time draft list, it’s clear that the team does a terrible job at drafting Kickers and Punters. Although these two positions may not be the flashiest, they are incredibly important. Just take a look at the good teams in the NFL, they do not settle for sub par players at any position, these two positions included. That being said, lets start with...

Buffalo Bills' Not So Special Teams

So far the 2013 Buffalo Bills special teams unit has been a black eye on an otherwise hopeful year. It’s been more specifically the punt coverage unit that has allowed teams to flip the field position in their favor and leave the Bills in worse starting points. In fact the punting unit could be blamed for one loss in particular against the Cleveland Browns. Though it isn’t just...
