Saint Doug or Satan Doug?

Was it the screen pass to Frank Summers? The Chris Hogan fumble? **** Dixon lined up at WR? The offensive line impersonating a subway turnstile? All of those moments ultimately led to  me cursing out the football Gods on Sunday. And the guy I really wanted to punch in the nuts was Doug Marrone. This guy who has been kind of a thorn in my ass has the Bills at 4-3 and maybe making...

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...

Top 5 Buffalo Bills who will either be starters or are cut

Every teams 53 man roster consists of 1st string, 2nd string and 3rd string players. Typically if a player is good enough to compete for a starting spot he will make the team, if he’s not starting he’d be the first one off the bench. Today’s list is for the exception to the rule, players who will either start or not make the team. In most cases this list is reserved for veteran...

The offseason is essentially complete, as teams wind down between now and the start of training camp, it’s possible to assess what each team has on their roster; things are essentially set, especially in terms of starting lineups.

Twitter Tuesday – Buffalo Bills taking a moment to give their respect

One thing that I have always enjoyed while working in sports is having the opportunity to have an annual game that honors and shows appreciation to the Men and Women who have put their lives on the line to make sure that we are safe. The sacrifices that are made on their end so that we may have the privileges that we do will never be able to be repaid with words. With the recent...

Bills' J.J. Unga facing 'biggest opportunity I've ever had'

Ready or not, offensive lineman J.J. Unga's number has been called. Signed less than a month ago off the Baltimore Ravens practice squad, the 26-year-old has had little time to acclimate himself to the Buffalo Bills' playbook, let alone much in-game experience to draw from. His limited time last week against Tampa Bay will have to do, however, as right guard Kraig Urbik is...
