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...

Getty Images Michael Sam was drafted in the seventh round by the St. Louis Rams but after a strong preseason was waived.

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? Because he was able to say what was on his mind -specifically to his boss (Vince McMahon)- without the element of consequence.

Bills camp week 1 – what I like so far

Finally football is back and we are a week into camp and here is what I like so far. The defensive line is dominating the offensive line.  With Cordy Glenn out and there is still plenty of uncertainly across the front five I am glad to see that our best unit…the defensive line, dominated.  This is a group that is deep and boasts three pro-bowlers, they should destroy a make-shift...
