Should the Buffalo Bills look to free agency to upgrade their o-line?

It’s a tough position to evaluate. There aren’t a lot of stats to help with the cause. Styles of play can sometimes skew opinions. And the difference between a win and a loss on any given play isn’t always black and white. But what is clear is that it’s a vital position. Whether a team is run-first or pass-happy, the ability to control the line of scrimmage is the key to...

One Fan(n)’s Opinion: Year End Awards by @RDotDeuce

Given the events of the last few days, doing awards for the year seems a little…weird. But a season of Buffalo Bills football has ended so we’re going to highlight all that was of the 2014-2015 Buffalo Bills. So without further ado: MVP – Mario Williams. While he’s credited officially with 14.5 sacks, Pro Bowler AND 1st team All-Pro Mario per Pro Football Focus was credited...

However, with yesterday’s news of (check Joe’s and Bradley’s takes on the subject) Orton replacing EJ and me having a horrendous migraine prior to receiving that news, I did what I usually do to relax and process things...

Which Buffalo Bill needs to step up against the Bucs

We are now into week three of the preseason and some things are starting to take shape:  The defensive front is going to be dominate, WR Robert Woods continues to play angry and should see the field a lot against the Bucs, Sammy Watkins is the real deal and LB Brandon Spikes is quickly becoming a fan favorite. That all said, there are three things I am going to be looking for against...

As Bills fans, we have always had a lot to worry about. Going through so many QB’s, head coaches, and turnover of so many players always seeking the perfect combination.

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...

Buffalo Bills Camp Preview – Offensive line competition should be interesting

Most positions on the Bills offense are pretty set. We know EJ Manuel is the QB, CJ Spiller is our tailback and Sammy Watkins is the #1 receiver. However, the offensive line competition this camp should be pretty interesting. First let’s get the easy stuff out of the way. Eric Wood is our Center and is quickly becoming the best in the AFC and one of the best in the NFL. Left...

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...

It was certainly a risk, but for a team searching for a franchise...
