Buffalo Bills: Tough season, but the future is bright

The Buffalo Bills may be a long shot for the playoffs, but the future is bright. The Bills record is 5-6, and they are third in their division. Four of their six losses were highly competitive, and one possession games. Every championship team has to have luck, this season it just seems like the Bills were on the short end of the stick. But, they should have a great outlook on the...

After 5 Games, Number 5 has Emerged as Buffalo’s Gem

View image | After the retirement of Hall Famer and legendary Buffalo Bills quarterback Jim Kelly in 1996 the Buffalo Bills have been on a desperate search to replace “Machine Gun Kelly” at the helm.  They have had many players who showed much promise, a few rookies that didn’t pan out, and a lot of questionable calls.  It is not always the quarterbacks...

One Bills Drive

The Buffalo Bills last made the playoffs in 1999. Their last playoff game was played on January 8th, 2000. Buffalo opened the new millennium with a soul-crushing loss, now known as the Music City Miracle. Not long before that, the Bills made four straight Super Bowls, and lost all of them. No other team has won four straight conference championships, but the Bills still fall...

Here's a fun fact about Tim Tebow, the Eagles and a Hall of Famer

So now that Tim Tebow is the fourth-string quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles, he's probably going to get microphones and camera shoved in his face every time he's on the field. See? Even Chip Kelly isn't giving us an inch on this one. To that end, rather than just tell you what Tebow did or didn't say, or how many passes he did or didn't complete, we're going to bring you a...

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...

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...

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...

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...

The Oakland Raiders will undoubtedly be looking to add a quarterback to their roster for the 2014 season.

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.
