While being a Bills fan sometimes results in accentuating any sort of positive in order to not lose your mind because of the losing, last year for a change proved to be a season where exaggeration wasn’t needed for the performance of the defense. The Bills’ defense showed glimpses of becoming a unit that could […]
The Bills’ overall third down defense was about middle of the road in terms of first downs allowed last season. Here’s where the Bills, and the rest of the league stacked up in 2013 (average rates are the blue dots and the tails represent the 95% confidence intervals based on sample sizes).
As most of you folks can tell, I’m a cynical man. Been that way since I can remember. I’m always the first to think you are full of compost while giving you the stink eye.
Warning: This is a preseason game recap. Everything you just witnessed is complete BS. It means nothing. Nada. Zip. If you don’t understand that, please read this and come back to my quick recap which is just as fake.
One of the things that makes sports unique is that you don’t simply try to accomplish something, you defeat somebody else. Few aspects of life encourage the sort of open animosity and even hatred that you find everywhere in sports. Does that make us bad people for loving it? Probably, but I’m not here to […]
As most of you guys know, I’m a huge wrestling fan. One of the best wrestlers in history happens to be “Stone Cold” Steve Austin. Why did people like him? Because he was able to say what was on his mind -specifically to his boss (Vince McMahon)- without the element of consequence. Its your classic […]
The Bills sale is going to close before we know it and the focus will shift from who will be purchasing the team to what that new owner plans to do for a new stadium. More than a few opinions are floating around currently and this week’s Artvoice cover story goes into great detail about a very cool plan […]
As I’ve maintained since the beginning of time, I’m pretty numb to preseason and training camp hype. Its the endless amount of angles that seem to run yearly during August and are normally nothing but failed promises. It just becomes New Years Eve where everyone tries to ignore how the previous year was the drizzling […]
Ricky Martin’s-Livin La Vida Loca…Rick Springfield- Jessie’s Girl… Vanilla Ice- Ice, Ice, Baby…. Dexy’s Midnight Runners- Come on Eileen. All one-hit wonders who got their 15 minutes of fame, only to then vanish and reappear onto a VH1 Sureal Life reality show 20 years later. You can only hope these folks saved their money.
When it comes to the personality of a football team, I have to say the dynamic between Fred Jackson and CJ Spiller is my favorites. While the guys’ personalities are relatively similar – humble and respectful – their running styles are just as different as the stories of how they got here.
Hey, let’s all talk about something that absolutely does not matter, okay? I hate to bring this topic up again, because I think it’s an absolute waste of time, but I could not be more annoyed by the way our local media has reacted to some short answers in recent media scrums by Doug Marrone. […]
There are a lot of fantasy football owners preparing for the upcoming NFL season at this point in the year. That means finding fantasy football sleepers and putting together a draft strategy. Their figures to be quite a bit of talent in the AFC East, but what about potential breakout stars? Here’s a look at […]
CJ Spiller has never been an “every down” running back in the NFL. Very few are. If he isn’t a full-time player, where should he fit into the mix? Is CJ Spiller too small?
Dear Mr. Bongiovi, Excuse me if I think your letter is a load of crap. If millions upon millions of dollars were at stake and I had to spin the biggest web of lies to try and gain the trust of a fanbase before ripping their team away from them, I’d probably do it too. […]
