Packers Periscope: Week 15 at Buffalo Bills

The Past: Talk about uncommon opponent; does anyone remember the last time the Packers played the Bills?  If you answered 2010, you either remember that the Packers played the Patriots (and therefore the AFC North and the Bills by extension) or you are just plain lying.  To recap, Trent Edwards was the quarterback and he spent a lot of time on the ground due to Clay Matthews,...

Are the Buffalo Bills a playoff team?

The Buffalo Bills have not made the playoffs since 1999, giving them the longest drought in the NFL. Frankly, it is almost impossible to miss the postseason for 15 consecutive seasons, considering the way the schedule, draft and waiver wire are set up to make bad teams significantly better. Still, Buffalo has defied all of those advantages, mostly by drafting EJ Manuel, Trent Edwards...

Predictions and Inactives - Chiefs at Bills

Special Guest Prediction:Chris SembowerThis week the Chiefs face off against a Buffalo team they have seen annually since Chan Gailey & Tyler Thigpen faced off against Trent Edwards in '08. The series hasn't been without it's drama, and when KC has won these matchups it's usually been by a slim margin. I think that trend continues in New York as the Chiefs sneak past the Bills...

The guide to liking a player even though he sucked

Judging from the photos above and title of this piece, you can probably already tell where this is going. In case you’ve been living under a rock, the Bills are taking on their former starting QB on Sunday. Now, this is an obvious angle for anyone with access to a blog, talk show, or newspaper who can easily script up drama about this match-up. The story arcs can consist of achieving...

How the draft hype has ruined our patience with EJ Manuel

Back in December, I wrote a piece about how fans’ trepidation surrounding EJ Manuel’s injury issues and his average rookie year was mostly based on our sad history of zero playoff appearances in 14 years. I totally understood what fans were feeling. Losing had made us irrational. We don’t want to pay our dues and suffer through growing pains anymore. We’ve done it enough...

Oakland Raiders' 53-Man Roster Projection Post-Game 3

-- Quarterbacks (3): Matt Schaub, Derek Carr, Matt McGloin.Update: Not much is needed to be said as nothing has changed here. Trent Edwards hasn't taken a snap all preseason and it would be a complete shock to see Oakland carrying a 4th QB. Derek suffering a concussion and rib injury has only delayed the inevitable of him taking the reigns as Oakland's franchise QB.-- Runningbacks...

109-week NFL-wide rookie QB starting streak could be broken at start of 2014 regular season

Now that’s it’s been confirmed that Johnny Manziel won’t start Week 1 in Cleveland, the odds are significantly better that we’ll have our first full regular-season NFL week without a rookie starting quarterback since 2007. There’s still a chance Blake Bortles gets the Week 1 nod in Jacksonville, but the Jaguars have said they want to bring their top pick along slowly. Matt...

Gallery: Worst First Pitches in Baseball History

Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson’s disastrous first pitch at the New York Mets game last night got us thinking. Was it the worst ceremonial first pitch in the history of baseball? 50 Cent might have been booed, but there are some other equally horrible first pitches out there. Let’s take a look at 10 of them.  10. Justin Bieber, “Singer” It’s not that Beiber’s first pitch...

Bills to play Packers on Monday night in 2014?

It seems the Bills taking on the Lions on Thanksgiving isn’t the only news regarding the 2014 NFL schedule to leak out.

Opponents for the teams were revealed following last season, however, dates and times for those games are expected...

Oakland Raiders Trade Series: Terrelle Pryor

The Oakland Raiders have acquired QB Matt Schaub in a trade with the Houston Texans. This acquisition puts four QBs on their roster. Three of them have one thing in common that makes them different from Terrelle Pryor. Matt Schaub, Matt McGloin and Trent Edwards are pocket passers while Pryor is a more mobile, running QB. More than likely, Edwards is not much more than a camp arm...

Oakland Raiders have added a lot but still have a lot to do

The Oakland Raiders have now signed seven players in the first seven days of NFL free agency. They may not have been big name signings like those seen in Denver and Cleveland, but they were far from insignificant. With five new defensive players and two new offensive players, the Raiders are on their way to fielding a much improved roster in 2014. But they are still miles away from...

The Buffalo Bills forgotten drought

Sometimes I think the NFL buys into its own hype. Many people you encounter, those who know about football and those who pretend to know about football will both say something to you along the lines of “Why do you cheer for the Bills? They suck!” and to that I never have an answer, because we kind of do. I will reiterate, we kind of do but we don’t. If you look back at a season...

Could Josh Freeman actually make sense for the Oakland Raiders?

The Oakland Raiders do not have a clear answer at the quarterback position. Yesterday I wrote about the need to bring in a free agent passer to help step up the competition in training camp. Even if the Raiders draft a quarterback and keep both guys they have on their roster from last season, they can afford another arm in camp (sorry Trent Edwards but here’s to hoping you get...

Raiders best options for a free agent quarterback

The Oakland Raiders will undoubtedly be looking to add a quarterback to their roster for the 2014 season. It is yet to be seen whether or not they will add someone through free agency, the draft or both, but Raiders fans should expect to see at least one new face playing quarterback for the team come training camp (and no, I don’t mean Trent Edwards). Much talk has been focused...

Worst pick in Bills quarterback history oozes with defeat

If you ask me the Buffalo Bills were only looking for trouble when they decided to draft a player with the word “Loss” in his name. In a league where superstitions result in players and teams doing the craziest of things in the belief that wins come from good luck it was kind of a no brainier that you shouldn’t pick a player in the first round whose name oozes with defeat....

Are Oakland Raiders desperate to trade Terrelle Pryor?

The Oakland Raiders continue to find themselves in the position of needing to identify a franchise quarterback. Last season, they had three different quarterbacks see time under center but none of them played well enough to be guaranteed the starting job in 2014. With Matt Flynn gone, the Raiders are down to two quarterbacks on the roster who could compete for the starting job (sorry...
