When I first heard about Stephen A. Smith’s First Take statement that women should not provoke men into assaulting them, I wasn’t surprised. First Take, after all, has morphed over the years from ESPN’s one-billionth attempt at a catchall morning show that would grab the attention of the illusive 18-34 Male demographic in the AM […]
Joe: Welcome to another edition of Barstool deliberations. Its Joe and Chris here giving you hot takes on any hot topic that crosses our mind. I think its safe to say the last 4 months or so, the main topic in the Buffalo sports scene has been the future of the Bills. And with Sabres […]
HYPE!! That’s what the preseason offers. It is a master plan of “What ifs” that can lead you into thinking this could be the year. Every fan base goes through this, especially the losing ones. Its really all what Bills fans have to get themselves in a peace of mind for the regular season. Regular […]
I know what you are thinking…Why would I not go for the QB? QB driven league. The last dozen or so who have won the Super Bowl were either good or great. They move the broadcast needles and all that sort of stuff.
When the news about Marcell Dareus failing his conditioning test this past Saturday, I was immediately curious about what an NFL conditioning test is like. I run a fair amount (about 35-40 miles per week currently), and I had a track workout scheduled for my Monday run. Why not try an NFL conditioning test and […]
A lot was thrown at us Bills fans over the last week as the team reported to Training Camp 2014. Whether it was Kiko’s injury, how the team plans to split time between all of their RB’s and if the secondary can really replace Jairus Byrd. Despite all that my focus, like many other fans’, […]
Who will start at left guard? Can we just say whoever wins this job is probably going to be the crappiest starter on this team? After the disastrous Collin Brown experiment, you’d think the Bills would have a better contingency plan since losing Andy Levitre. Instead, its between Chris Williams (A former 1st round bust) […]
Who will replace Kiko Alonso? Ugh. Still kind of sucks, don’t it? Right now it seems like the fight for the gig is between Nigel Bradham and Preston Brown. Keith Rivers seems to have the weakside LB spot in trenched, so, its down to these guys.
Who will start at RT? This has to be a slam dunk, right? Unless Cyrus Kouandjio comes in 50lbs overweight and is reeking of the weed Marcell Dareus smokes, he’s your starting RT. You don’t draft a tackle in the 2nd round to have them sit during their first year. Of course, that’s a bit […]
It’s the elephant in the room when it comes to discussing the future of the Bills in Buffalo. Finding a solution to where the Bills will be playing their games for the foreseeable future has presented a myriad of questions, proposals and debates throughout Western New York and it doesn’t appear we’re collectively closer to […]
With this being the final All-Star game in Derek Jeter’s legendary career, I wanted to take a moment to remember the player from the perspective of a non-Yankees fan. I am an Atlanta Braves fan, have been since I found TBS (Adelphia Ch. 23) in the early 1990’s.
Don’t let the title fool you. I’m not happy about blogging about training camp as I have a known disdain for the fake pageantry that leads into the regular season. Yet, even with my dislike for the preseason hype, I still feel a bit lethargic in regards to blogging. Nothing is resonating with me. This […]
You may or may not have heard that some guy by the name of “Lebron James” made some big decision to go back to Cleveland on Friday. Upon doing so, some genius in Miami defaced a mural (which included Lebron, D-Wade, Chris Bosh & head coach Erik Spoelstra) that took an artist over 2 years […]
Now that Kiko Alonso is out for the 2014 season, there has been a lot of speculation about who might take his vacated playing time. One player that might fill at least some of the Alonso void is Nigel Bradham, Buffalo’s fourth round draft pick from 2012.
Buffalo’s selection of Sam Reinhart brought the expected media crush upon the club. Buffalo hadn’t picked as high as second overall since they drafted Pierre Turgeon first overall in 1987. However, it was Tim Murray’s first selection on day two of the draft that has been garnering quite a bit of attention.
