My recap: Bills lose to Dolphins, 22-9

Groundhog Day. Nothing like hitting the midway point of November and knowing the Bills are pretty much dead for the playoffs. I’m so numb to all of this. It becomes just a shrug at this point where you look at each other and go #becauseitsbuffalo The time is now…[Clears throat]….THE BILLS HAVE TO FIRE CHAN GAILEY…I mean, fire Jauron…Wait…Mularkey? Gregg Williams? Kay...

Could mediocrity be awarded for the Bills after this season?

The Buffalo Bills will not make the playoffs. I know. I’ve been wrong before and while tap dancing on their playoff grave on November 11th is probably premature, I have a gut feeling this is where we will be come late December. With a conference record of 2-4 and losses against the teams we are chasing, it just doesn’t seem likely. The Bills might be “in the hunt” but it...

Predictions and Inactives - Chiefs at Bills

Special Guest Prediction:Chris SembowerThis week the Chiefs face off against a Buffalo team they have seen annually since Chan Gailey & Tyler Thigpen faced off against Trent Edwards in '08. The series hasn't been without it's drama, and when KC has won these matchups it's usually been by a slim margin. I think that trend continues in New York as the Chiefs sneak...

Recap: Bills lose to the Texans, 23-17

Well, that went splendidly.  Seriously, that just felt like every other Bills game over the last 14 years. Just inept playing-calling, crappy QB play, drop passes, terrible offensive line play and that was just in the first half! Already my Twitter feed is filled with people who want Kyle Orton and want to launch EJ Manuel into the sun. My God. We are only 4 weeks into the season...

What We Need Here is a Little Brain Power by @mmigliore

One of the prevailing thoughts about the Bills and Sabres over the years has always been a perceived lack of talent. We always seem to be lacking a quarterback, a first-line center, a 40-goal scorer, a big receiving threat, a smooth, puck-moving defenseman or an absolute beast at middle linebacker. What if, one of our biggest issues has been a lack of brain power? It may not be a...

The return of optimism for one Bills fan

If you’ve followed me on Twitter  during the past few Bills seasons, you already know I don’t often have much nice things to say about the Bills. But can you really blame me? What good has there been in the last 14 years? In the 12 years spanning 1988-1999, the Bills posted a 124-68 record and made 10 playoff appearances. Over the past 14 years, the Bills have slopped their...

For better or worse: Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets

After looking like a genius with Chan Gailey’s players, Paul Johnson has settled into an average tenure with the Jackets. Over the last four years the Jackets have never won less than six games and they’ve never won more than eight. They consistently finish 4-4 or 5-3 in the conference. Will the Jackets be better or worse than they were last season? First let’s take a look...

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...

Spikes hoping to get all he can from Schwartz's 4-3 set

BY DAN BEGNOCHESince 2010, the name of the game in Buffalo, at least defensively, has been adaptation. Starting with George Edwards’ arrival in 2010 under former head coach Chan Gailey, there have been four different defensive coordinators for the Bills in five years, all with their own way of doing things. In his two years at the helm, Edwards ran a 3-4 scheme, while his successor...

The ACC doesn

SouthernPigskin had an article today titled ” Is Paul Johnson Bad for the ACC “. It was an interesting, but flawed piece. The author’s premise is that for the ACC to catch the SEC in football they need to start winning more recruiting battles in the state of Georgia. Paul Johnson as the head coach at Georgia Tech is not recruiting his own state well enough and that in turn...

Why the Buffalo Bills should run more screen plays this season

Looking at the offensive skill positions for the Buffalo Bills two things stand out, youth and speed. The Bills have some of the fastest receivers in the NFL and one of the fastest running backs as well. To be a successful offense you must get the ball in the hands of your playmakers early and as often as possible, one way of doing so is the screen play. Say what you want about former...

If you are, then you have every right to be as it is a fact, we haven’t...

By trading up, Buffalo Bills would probably only invite more agony

The Buffalo Bills are the only NFL team that hasn’t made the playoffs this century. I wrote this back in 2010, and it still stands: It doesn’t take long for an NFL team to go from good to bad and from bad to good, which is why it’s so unbelievable that the Bills have been so consistently bad. With all due respect to Ralph Wilson beyond the grave, this franchise has been mismanaged...

117 fans attended Georgia Tech’s spring game?

117? That’s the number that’s been floating around social media in terms of fans that attended the Georgia Tech spring game on Friday night. 117! In contrast, the population of the city of Atlanta (Georgia Tech’s home) is over 400,000 and the Atlanta metro area has over six million people. Six million people! If we are to believe social media, only 117 of those six million...

Beyond the stats: Breaking down CJ's Catches

CJ Spiller averaged 10.2 yards per reception in 2012 and then 5.6 in 2013. The Buffalo running back had a down year, likely due to injury, but what gives? How much differently was he used in the passing game and did that also impact his production as a receiver? In 2012, Chan Gailey put Spiller all over the field presnap. He was used in the slot, out wide, and in the backfield...

Second Take with @BradleyGelber – Not Good, Not Bad, Just Different

With another Buffalo Bills season officially in the books and 2013 coming to a close I started doing some reflecting. Things are different in the world of Buffalo sports.

As in all aspects of life, things change when it comes to sports...

Did Paul Johnson put himself on the hotseat?

This game was one of the hardest to watch of the bowl season. Ole Miss is a little bit more talented, and the coaching was just a little less inept, but make no mistake neither coaching staff should be applauded for that effort. That said I’d rather win ugly vs lose pretty anyday. Ole Miss got the victory 25-17. The Rebels will take that win and enjoy it as they should, but here...

Is Mike Sherman to blame for the Dolphins offensive struggles?

Sure the Dolphins lost last week to the Bills 19-0.  The loss put the Dolphins one game away from elimination with having to win this week versus their rival Jets and get help from other AFC teams (Ravens loss OR Chargers win).  When the Dolphins have scored offensive touchdowns, the Dolphins get the blame no matter the situation and the blame undoubtedly lands on Mike Sherman...
