DENISIn Year 1, Doug Marrone was not only learning the basics of being a head coach in the NFL, but also simply learning the basics about his personnel.In 2014, Marrone is able to hit the ground running, and much of that has to do with his extensive knowledge of the team, something he didn't have as a rookie coach."Well, last year I didn’t know a lot of the...

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...

Power Rankings: How would the Buffalo Bills do as a Super Bowl host?

In early February, Super Bowl XLVIII was played in the New York / New Jersey area, the first time the big game had been played outdoors in a cold-weather market. This opened the window for every NFL city to throw their name into the hat as a possible host for future title tilts.

Would Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone make for a better coordinator?

Every NFL head coach essentially takes the same path to their job. They work their way through the assistant coaching ranks, starting at the bottom of the totem poll, bouncing from place to place in order to move up the ladder, and finally landing a job as a coordinator. In that spot, they flourish, becoming an integral part of a team’s success. Because of that, a coach becomes...

Are these five Buffalo Bills on the bubble

It truly is the dead time of the year for sports and no, I do not care about the World Cup. I don’t understand soccer, don’t like soccer and find the whole thing beyond boring. The NBA and NHL finals are done and training camp is over a month away. So alone with my thoughts and the Bills training camp roster, I did some late night studying, and I think I have an idea who could...

Pardon the brief digression, but when I think of dudes drag racing I don’t typically picture some guy who is 6’3’’ 330 lbs. I picture little guys like Paul Walker (RIP) or Tyrese Gibson, not massive NFL DT’s. But maybe...
