Chicago Bears Gunning For Young Emerging Pass Rusher

While Philadelphia, Oakland and other franchises garner all the attention for their NFL free agency exploits, Chicago Bears fans have sat quietly wondering what their team has planned for free agency.  After all, following the Brandon Marshall trade they now have between $30-32 million in salary cap space.  Given the number of roster holes they need to fill it’s plainly obvious...

Should the Minnesota Vikings consider a d-lineman in free agency?

In a league where the rules are heavily tilted in the favor of the offense, there aren’t a lot of ways for the defense to fight back. All too often, their role in a game is to slow down the bleeding, not stop it. Dominating on that side of the ball has become more and more rare. But that doesn’t mean it can’t happen. In fact, we’ve seen a few examples in recent years where...

Jacksonville Jaguars Free Agency Prospects: Part 1

We begin with free agents from the teams that each of the Jacksonville Jaguars' newly-acquired coaches worked for in 2014, the Buffalo Bills and Oakland Raiders. Available players do certainly like to be paid, but they also prefer to stay with coaches that they are familiar with so that there are no surprises in discipline or in training regimens.With the Jaguars, many of the players...

Could J.J. Watt Line up on Offense in Sunday’s Pro Bowl?

We may just see Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt lined up on offense in Sunday’s Pro Bowl. Want some proof? This is Watt catching a pass from Buffalo Bills defensive lineman Kyle Williams. Nice pass for a large guy. We all saw a sampling of Watt’s catching abilities, as evidenced by his three receiving touchdowns during the 2014 season. Watt, who’s trying to work on...

My “The Bills are heading in the right direction” review for the 2014 season

We took the cynical view, but now it’s time for the Happy Ending version. Cue up Wayne and Garth saying do-do-do-do-do-do.  Sometimes you just have to walk before you can run. For years, the Bills have tried to walk, but by the time December hit, someone had taken out their kneecaps. It has happened every single year. That’s why sometimes you just have to accentuate any positive...

Bills better, but not good enough to make playoffs

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) The Buffalo Bills were better. In the end, they weren't good enough. That's the message general manager Doug Whaley intends to present the franchise's new owners, Terry and Kim Pegula, after Buffalo (9-7) closed its best season in a decade, but still extended the NFL's longest playoff drought to 15 seasons. ''We're encouraged, but we're not satisfied,'' Whaley...

I wrote this piece before the season started and now its time to see how smart or stupid I am. As I’ve alluded to it multiple times, writers and lamestreamers alike will be the first to break their hand patting themselves on the back if they get something right in sports, but will ***** slap you in the face if you remind them how they got one of their hot takes wrong.

Patriots vs. Bills: Keys to the Game

The Patriots game against the Bills Sunday has zero effect on the playoff picture. However, I feel that the Patriots need to gain some more momentum heading into the playoffs, particularly on offense. The offense has sputtered in the past month and is facing a Buffalo Bills defense that is tops in the league in many categories. If Belichick is truly playing to win the game, which...

'Super Mario' making presence felt in Buffalo

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) Jerry Hughes shakes his head in dismay and mutters, ''That's crazy.'' The Bills defensive end has difficulty imagining how the Houston Texans were being second-guessed for selecting Mario Williams with the No. 1 pick in the 2006 draft. No offense to running back Reggie Bush or quarterback Vince Young, who went Nos. 2 and 3, but Hughes makes his case by noting...

WATCH: Kyle Williams gives Johnny Manziel a warm welcome to the NFL

Manziel did alright for himself, completing five of eight passes and rushing for a touchdown. It wasn’t all wine and roses, however. Check out this clip of Bills defensive tackle Kyle Williams welcoming Johnny Football to the NFL:  ...

My recap: Bills beat the Jets, 38-3

Heading into this game and for about the last 72 hours or so, I really didn’t think much about playoff aspirations or just playing out the string for the season. Instead, I thought a lot about what Buffalo had gone through last week with the snow. Now, I actually didn’t know anyone personally affected by it as my family/friends who still live in Buffalo were spared by the storm...

Pass protection is the most important factor for the Miami Dolphins to win

The Miami Dolphins are 5-4 entering week 11 of the NFL season, and there is a common thread in the three of their four losses they’ve had this year. Other than consistently inconsistent play under head coach Joe Philbin, there have been a few things that have stood out in the Dolphins losses this year. In three of their four losses this year (Buffalo Bills, Kansas City Chiefs,...

Miami’s Interior Offensive Line is a Huge Issue

So far this season, the Dolphins have gone from looking brilliant to a dumpster fire in just a game at times. People are quick to blame Ryan Tannehill, the coaching, or any other aspect of the game. The thing is, it is more complicated than that. Every constantly good football team starts in the trenches. In two of the three Dolphins losses (and even a win), the interior offensive...

BY DAN BEGNOCHENow officially halfway through the season, the Buffalo' Bills defense is looking pretty good.Following their best effort since 2007, questions were abound this season as Mike Pettine's departure for Cleveland at the end of last year opened the door for the more traditional style of defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz.

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...
