About 10 years ago, my former roommate and I decided to venture to McFaddens, a NYC Bills bar, to watch the Bills. My roommate was a huge Eagles fan, but since they weren’t playing, he decided to come and see what the fuss was about. At McFaddens they play the Bills game – and only […]
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.
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 […]
First off, for those of you who regularly read my column, I just wanted to explain why I’ve been MIA the past couple of weeks… I’ve been writing my column every week for over a year now only taking a week off here or there when life caused me do so. These past two weeks […]
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. —Its only preseason, its only preseason, its only preseason, its only preseason, its only preseason, its only preseason, its […]
If there’s one thing Bills fans like to do more than drink Canadian beer or yell expletives at Bon Jovi, its talk about who the Bills need to cut/trade/fire. For whatever reason, we love this. EJ Manuel had a bad preseason game? Cut him; he’ll never be good. Stevie Johnson pretended to shoot himself then […]
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.

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 […]
