Buffalo Bills center Eric Wood is sorry for messing up your survivor pool

Manuel threw for 173 yards, and the team as a whole ran for nearly 200. But the unsung stars for the Bills may have been on the offensive line.

News outlets have been disrespectful and unprofessional...

Bills player blames ESPN for Michael Sam being out of a job

Michael Sam being cut by the Rams wasn’t a tremendous surprise… but him being unsigned by any NFL team for their practice squad certainly is.  Sam played well in the preseason and was considered a shoo-in for the Rams practice squad at the very least, but they chose to stock extra bodies at different positions.  Now, sadly and predictably, Sam still waiting for the phone to...

Is Eric Wood as great of a talker as he is a player?

As most of you guys know, I’m a huge wrestling fan. One of the best wrestlers in history happens to be “Stone Cold” Steve Austin. Why did people like him?

With their first four picks they covered three of these issues, those being coverage by drafting Jarius Byrd and o-line by drafting Andy...
