NFL News: Reconstruction of Buffalo Bills 2015

For the first time since 2004, Buffalo Bills finally had a winning record this season (9-7). This is a mammoth stepping stone for an organization that has been the epitome of mediocrity. Every season, it didn’t matter who they brought in. It was just a 5-11 or a 6-10 season and this pattern would just continue. But under Doug Marrone, who was formerly the head coach of Syracuse...

Greg Roman to give Bills quarterback EJ Manuel a clean slate

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) Buffalo Bills second-year quarterback EJ Manuel is getting a clean slate under Greg Roman.

Manuel along with practice squad member Jeff Tuel, and however many quarterbacks the Bills add this offseason will have to prove themselves on the field, Roman said during...

What is the best option at quarterback for the Buffalo Bills?

The Buffalo Bills organization underwent a lot of turmoil in the past few weeks. Former head coach Doug Marrone opted-out of his contract, leaving them without a coach. Quarterback Kyle Orton, who was a serviceable stop-gap until Buffalo finds their franchise guy, retired. While the coaching issue will most likely be addressed first, the Bills now only have two QB’s on the roster...

. @mmigliore: Are the Bills ready to Outlast the Other AFC Playoff Hopefuls?

I feel like I need to paraphrase Newman and Kramer’s dialogue from The Spitting Incident to properly retell the story of last season’s Bills-Chiefs contest. November 3, 2013. Bills-Chiefs. I was enjoying a beautiful afternoon in the lower bowl when an ill-advised Jeff Tuel pass was intercepted by Sean Smith and returned 100 yards for a Kansas City touchdown, opening the door...

Are the Bills for real or not (and other things)

Breaking news: You can be happy about your team and critical of your team at the same time. Was I happy with the Bills on Sunday? Of course. Do I still think the offense needs to improve? Yes.  You can’t have 9 drives that resulted in only four plays or fewer. The Bills scored a lot of points because the Jets are a tire fire and when they face better competition – which is...

Kyle Orton…Captain Comeback?

Who would have thought that the outlook of this season would change because of Kyle Orton? Two months ago we had Thad Lewis and Jeff Tuel battling it out for backup supremacy and Kyle Orton was just hanging out with his kids.  Orton is on his what, 2nd? 3rd? chance in the NFL? It’s amazing to think this guy didn’t have a training camp or throw a single pass – maybe to his...

Second Take with @BradleyGelber – The Natural Evolution Of A Bills Fan’s QB Preference

I’ve come to the conclusion that as Buffalo Bills fans we have absolutely no idea what we want at quarterback (myself included.) One minute we’re begging the front office to draft a young, “QB of the future” & the next we’re clamoring about a reliable veteran who has been around the block before. No, really… we have no idea what we want. When the news broke this past...
