Best cornerback ever drafted by the Buffalo Bills

When I was scrolling through the draft picks by the Buffalo Bills in the last 20 years, seeing the name Nate Clements brought back a multitude of memories from his years in Buffalo. If I could describe Nate as a football player in one word, I would use ‘Driven’. To establish a little history here, for those of you who don’t remember Nate Clements upon leaving the Buffalo Bills...

The selfish Bills fan.

Buffalo is one of the best cities in America to play professional football in. It doesn’t have a corporate atmosphere like in New York. It doesn’t have a scoreboard the size of Wyoming like they do in Dallas. It doesn’t have have the nightlife like Miami has and it doesn’t have the smugness San Francisco has. It’s a blue collar town with blue collar problems and fan friendly...

The Safety Conundrum of the New York Jets

Jets fans, you have been duped! Bamboozled! The wool has been pulled over your eyes! The all-world performance by a deep group of cornerbacks has been the light that blinded you to the truth. The truth is that the New York Jets have been managing with mediocre to poor safety play ever since 2010. Okay, maybe the issue has been more obvious than that. Most of you are keenly aware...
