Kouandjio prepared to battle for starting spot at right tackle

Few highly-regarded rookies had worse 2014 campaigns than Buffalo Bills' second-round pick, Cyrus Kouandjio. He played just three snaps in 2014, all of which came on special teams. His lack of playing time wasn't due to injury, either. It was the result of poor play."It’s tough," Kouandjio said via the Buffalo News. "This is my profession. This is my job. I love football and I’ve...

Why is Cyrus Kouandjio ahead of Seantrel Henderson on the depth chart?

Buffalo Bills offensive tackle Seantrel Henderson has had a forgettable start to mandatory minicamp this week. It started with Henderson being the only Bills player to miss the start of minicamp after having travel issues. Then on Wednesday, he returned to the practice field to find himself demoted to the third team offense. Despite starting all 16 games last season as a rookie...

How have the Washington Redskins pre-draft favorites fared this preseason?

The NFL has become a year-long sport. Yeah, the games are great, and the Super Bowl is awesome, but, nowadays, we spend just as much time, if not more, talking about the draft and combine. Who should we draft? Who’s a sleeper? Who’s going to flop? But then, months later, all that conversation is pushed conveniently out of view as our “busts” shine and our “sleepers” bust...

What does Buffalo have to clean up against the Bucs?

The #BillsMafia needs to breathe a sigh of relief seeing that the past few weeks of Bills football has been preseason exhibitions. Their have been some ugly miscommunications, sloppy execution, and a sense of underachievement in each of their first three contests. However, at the end of the day this is what preseason is all about, ironing these kinks out before the official season...

After three preseason games there are a few intresting position battles shaping up. Here are my top three: Right Guard- The main two fighting for this spot are rookie Cyril Richardson and returning starter Kraig Urbrik. It is hard to say how much of a chance Richardson has at taking Urbrik’s job considering that he hasn’t seen that much time at the position. What is becoming...

Overreaction theater: the hall of fame game

EJ Manuel is the worst Quarterback in football.  Jeff Tuel needs to be the starting QB.  CJ Spiller is done.  Sammy Watkins is a bust.  The coaches don’t believe in Robert Woods.  Cyrus Kouandjio is a bust.  We can’t stop the run. These are just a few of the posts I saw on Twitter and Facebook both during and after the Hall of Fame game.  From the name of the post you...

My 4 burning questions for Bills Training Camp: #3

Who will start at RT? This has to be a slam dunk, right? Unless Cyrus Kouandjio comes in 50lbs overweight and is reeking of the weed Marcell Dareus smokes, he’s your starting RT. You don’t draft a tackle in the 2nd round to have them sit during their first year. Of course, that’s a bit of a blanked statement by me as it can be termed as a case-by-case basis in terms of a pick...
