Who will be the Buffalo Bills break out player in 2015

For the past couple years the Bills have had one player break out and live up to their true potential. Remember when Marcel Dareus had the word bust being thrown around about him. Then somewhere around two years ago he just started to devour interior lineman. Or how two years ago people were screaming for Stephon Gilmore to be benched and then again with him he just flipped a switch...

Bills Will Pick Up CB Stephon Gilmore’s Fifth-Year Option

Bills GM Doug Whaley told Mike Rodak of ESPN that they will pick up CB Stephon Gilmore‘s fifth-year option in the coming months. Because Gilmore was a top-10 pick back in 2012, his fifth-year option will be based on transition tender for his position, which would be the average salary for the top-10 cornerback last year.

One Fan(n)’s Opinion: DB Market Evaluation @RDotDeuce

View image | With the last three years’ worth of moves in free agency and the draft, the Bills are more than ready to handle the impending departure of Da’Norris Searcy. To do so, that may require moving Corey Graham to safety, which would in turn require another corner to be added to the mix, should the premise of an untested Ross Cockrell, Ron Brooks or...

5 things the Bills need to improve on for the 2nd half of the season

After last week’s piece  asking whether the Bills are for real or not (I’m saying 8-8), I thought it would be helpful for me to come up with a few ways the Bills might turn that 8-8 record into a 10-6 march. I’ll admit, I’m excited about November. The last two times the Bills were 5-3 when heading into the 2nd half, they had just lost 3 out of 4 games (2008) and 2 out...

Beyond the stats with @nickelcitybills: Analyzing Stephon Gilmore

Stephon Gilmore has been a polarizing player dating back to last season. After missing Week 1 with a groin injury, the first round cornerback has been part of a three-man rotation with Corey Graham and Leodis McKelvin. Now that he’s returned to action, fears and rumblings that he may not be the shutdown corner we hoped he would become have arisen. Evaluating cornerbacks is difficult...

Recap: Bills lose to the Chargers, 22-10

I’m not big on trying to act like this or that game is going to be a defining moment for any NFL team. Sorry, but I’ve lived through too many of those types of Bills games to know that just leads to a phony narrative. And the conclusion of that narrative is always the same: 14 years, zero playoffs. But it’s a marathon, not a sprint. The tide rarely turns because of this or...

4 reasons the Miami Dolphins will beat the Buffalo Bills Week 2

The Miami Dolphins are 1-0 following a 33-20 beatdown of the New England Patriots, and are headed into Buffalo to take on the 1-0 Bills. This lede isn’t from 1994, but today in 2014, and Dolphins fans wouldn’t have it any other way. A victory gives Miami a 2-0 record in the AFC East, putting them in the division’s drivers seat despite how early we are into the season. But can...

Can Stephon Gilmore become a #1 CB?

Stephon Gilmore is probably the quietest player on the team. Seriously, has the guy said a word? When he does open his mouth,  he’s very soft-spoken, but obviously most Bills fans can care less as long as he does his job on the field. When you look at Gilmore’s physical attributes, he totally passes the smell test. Its the size of him that really sticks out. He’s pretty physical...
