Buffalo’s crowded backfield

Buffalo made a surprising move this offseason when they made a trade with the Eagles to acquire running back Bryce Brown. It seemed odd for Buffalo to try and strengthen arguably the strongest position on the team.

Are Fred Jacksons day’s in Buffalo numbered?

One clear distinction between current Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone and the man he replaced Chan Gailey, is that Marrone is not going to keep players on a roster or start them out of loyalty. While in some ways it is an admirable trait of Gailey’s, the bottom line is there was a reason why he was 16-32 in three seasons as head coach. He seemed less flexible on moving away...
