Proposed new nickname for the Buffalo Bills makes sense for the city

Momentum is building for the Washington Redskins to change their nickname, to the point where it now seems like an inevitable conclusion. Dan Snyder and Company almost assuredly know that, which is why they’ve registered Bravehearts as a possible new moniker for the franchise. But there are plenty of other teams who could use a facelift. Two weeks ago, the editors at cover32 used...

This Buffalo fan hates this time of year

The NBA finals are over, the Stanley cup has been hoisted over LA (great because in Buffalo we all know what a great “hockey” town LA is), and football still has a month or so till the pre season starts. This is officially the worst time in the sporting world’s year and I hate it. Yeah I know the World Cup is on and some of you are very excited about that. But ya know what...

Marcus Easley – The Odd Man Out

With everyone’s roster projections floating around the Bills community, I decided that I would weigh in on one of our “roster locks” according to Mike Rodak of ESPN. The locks for this roster, purposely leaving off Mike Williams (to cause a stir amongst fans and increase his views so he can make more money) is probably one of the most off point things I have ever read, coming...

Pre-Draft Bills WR depth chart is pretty crowded as it is

Before the Draft even hits this week, the Bills would have a tough time figuring out the 1-5 or 6 in their WR depth chart. There are a lot of good players with similar size and big play ability in the group already, meanwhile the team could very well bring in another top college talent by the end of the week. However, working with what the team has on the roster now, it is a fearsome...

In Buffalo who stays and who goes…

I don’t know about you but, it takes me a couple weeks to put the season behind me. Once the Super Bowl teams have been decided is usually when I start thinking about next year. It’s about this time that it dawns on me that I really don’t care who wins the Super Bowl because Buffalo isn’t in it, and then turn my attention to what’s next for the Bills. And let me tell...

Nothing special about the Bills special teams department; They have to fire Danny Crossman

While I am always one to gripe about Special Teams, I feel I have a good cause. I was a special teams player growing up as a kicker and I have even worked with the Orlando Predators as a kicking assistant for a couple years.  The Buffalo Bills special teams coach Danny Crossman has to […]

Buffalo Bills' Not So Special Teams

So far the 2013 Buffalo Bills special teams unit has been a black eye on an otherwise hopeful year. It’s been more specifically the punt coverage unit that has allowed teams to flip the field position in their favor and leave the Bills in worse starting points. In fact the punting unit could be blamed for one loss in particular against the Cleveland Browns. Though it isn’t just...

Jim Leonhard knows a thing or two about the philosophy and execution of a special teams unit. He's been immersed in it for nearly a decade.So while it may be easy to look at Buffalo's struggling punt coverage squad and say it's needs a personnel change — players or coach — the veteran return man isn't ready to jump to conclusions."It’s not like we can say...

Bills face difficult decision with Da'Rick Rogers

It may puzzle some that there's even discussion on how an undrafted player who has clearly been out-performed by at least six receivers currently on the Buffalo Bills' roster is even in the conversation for a roster spot. The problem facing Buffalo's coaching staff and front office is that Da'Rick Rogers hardly fits the looks the part of any normal UDFA, and has...

Bubble Watch Updated

Last week I thought that three players were on the bubble who the Bills might regret cutting. Of course that was before Buffalo released long time kicker Rian Lindell (which I predicted), and LB Nigel Bradham was cited for marijuana possession. Continued drug busts and off the field issues can get even the best of players assigned to bubble watch but, since this is a first offense...

Buffalo Bills roster battle: Wide Receiver

A weakness entering the 2013 offseason, the Buffalo Bills' front office has done a great job of infusing some young talent to a receiving corps that was almost completely devoid of depth at the end of 2012. The position is so deep that there will likely be at least one or two players that will be signed to another team's active roster following the league's final cut...

Boys Making Noise in the Preseason

Every year, players dominate the preseason, but rarely do they make an impact in fantasy land. However, with so many teams running with a committee in the backfield and holding on to those extra receivers to spread the field, some of these guys might actually be able to help during the regular season. Do not draft any of these guys, but keep an eye on them. QuarterbacksE.J. Manuel...
