Is Tyrod Taylor the Savior the Bills Need?

View image | Before Mini Camp and Training Camp and even Free agency for that matter, did you ever hear of a man by the name of Tyrod Taylor? I didn’t, and only a few Ravens fans probably knew who he was.  For the last four years of his life he was Joe Flacco’s backup. Then he made a choice that would forever change his life.

The Buffalo Bills will perhaps appreciate ‘Tyrod Time’ better than the Baltimore Ravens

I know it’s just the second game of the preseason, but something was missing for the Ravens Saturday night, and I don’t mean just their top draft pick receiver, half of their offensive line, and a pass rush of any consequence. They played flat as a group. No individual gaffe stands out. There is nothing to write about, really. The Ravens were so sluggish and the game was so slow...
