Assessing Where Buffalo Fans Are With Doug Marrone

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 […]


Can Marcell Dareus rebound after a tough offseason?

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 […]

Fake takes from a fake game: Bills/Steelers

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. 


Is Eric Wood as great of a talker as he is a player?

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 @2ITB_Buffalo Plan for a Bills stadium

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 […]


Which Bills player will try and guide us to hope this time around?

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 […]

Jim Leonhard, Manny Lawson

Are these Bills players one-hit wonders or will they continue to evolve?

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.


My 2014 Bills Preview: Running back edition

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.


Second Take with @BradleyGelber – Buffalo To Canton… One Last Time

The Buffalo Bills were once a good football team, as evident by several members of the organization making it into the Hall of Fame in recent years, concluding with Andre Reed’s entrance this past weekend. To quickly recap… Bruce Smith, Thurman Thomas, Jim Kelly, Marv Levy, the late Ralph Wilson Jr. & now Andre Reed […]

In case you forgot…Preseason is a scam

(Note: This is the 4th year in a row I have run this piece and as per the usual, I made sure to give it an update. No matter what happens, this piece will always be posted at this time every year.)  There are a number of things on God’s great Earth that I can’t […]


Celebrating Andre Reed’s greatness

I wish I had a stronger thesis for this column than “I love Andre Reed and think he’s awesome,” but that’s about it. As you know, Reed will finally be inducted into the Hall of Fame on Saturday in Canton, the main event to an all-Buffalo weekend in the birthplace of professional football (sorry, but […]
