The exact opposite of Bruce Smith was…

The 2009 draft in my opinion could have been the turning point in recent Bills history if it wasn’t for one crucial mistake. Aaron Maybin. The Bills needed to address three issues after the 2008 season. Pass rush, coverage and offensive line. With their first four picks they covered three of these issues, those being coverage by drafting Jarius Byrd and o-line by drafting Andy...

Does Buffalo’s offensive line need an upgrade

The Buffalo Bills most potent weapon of last season was made almost useless at times due to other positions falling short. This weapons that failed to meet our expectations was the supposed two headed monster backfield of Fred Jackson and CJ Spiller.
