Because the Buffalo Bills don’t play in a big market city or have a flashy superstar, people tend to overlook them. They made the playoffs two years ago with a bit of help from Tyler Boyd and Andy Dalton, but last year wasn’t quite as successful. They had a second-year head coach and a rookie quarterback with very little offensive line help. This year there are no excuses. Josh Allen has spent ample time in the Buffalo system to familiarize himself with the expectations of the coaching staff and of the fans. He also has some weapons and some protection now. Everything is set up for another Buffalo playoff appearance, but can they follow through?
Nearly 100,000 people are currently waiting for a kidney transplant. In fact, more people are waiting for a match because of kidney failure than all other organs combined. On Wednesday word is spread all over social media that former NFL defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth was in desperate need of a kidney due to the failure of his kidneys. He posted on Instagram that the time had come to ask for help and fans and media alike have been spreading his plea for help on social media platforms far and wide. Another NFL player who has already gone through a kidney transplant is former Bills wide receiver, Donald Jones. Jones has written a book, The Next Quarter, about his experiences before during and after the transplant. Information about obtaining the book is available at DonaldJones.info. It is a great read.
When the Buffalo Bills traded for you from the Philadelphia Eagles back in 2015, I was very excited. The Bills didn’t give up much to acquire you, and they almost always have a good backfield and run game. It was a match made in heaven. Your first season with the Bills was a good one, having over 1,000 all-purpose yards in 12 games and making the Pro Bowl. You barely missed a beat going from the Eagles to the Bills and you still looked like a star even when you were hurt. You were a perennial Pro Bowler and consistently had well over 1,000 yards. That was all up until 2018. Continue reading →
Tuesday morning, word spread quickly that the Buffalo Bills Superfan Ezra Castro, Pancho Billa to BillsMafia and everyone whose life he touched, had lost his long battle to Stage IV Pancreatic Cancer. His moving obituary can be read here Ezra Castro Obituary.
With the 2019 NFL Draft now behind us, teams are now beginning to take shape and mold into what we will most likely see for the upcoming 2019-20 season. With the compensatory period coming to an end on May 8, meaning that all free agents signed after that period won’t count against compensatory picks, we could see some movement among players very soon. With several players still left on the free agency market such as Ndamukong Suh or Eric Berry, and along with trade rumors that we could possibly see come to fruition, here are ten players that we could see being picked up by a team or traded in the next month or two.

The Bills filled some major holes during free agency and are starting to look like potential playoff contenders. They still lack a few positions and need to fill these gaps in the draft. To help with this mock draft, I used the FanSpeak on the Clock simulator. Continue reading →
Now that the 2019 NFL combine is behind us, free agency is just around the corner. Every fan base will be excited or will be disappointed based on what kind of moves their team makes. Meanwhile, fantasy football players are keeping a close eye on where the top free agents land. This year’s free agency class isn’t very good offensively so there will be plenty of competition for the top players’ services. I determined the top 12 free agents (offensive guys only, no IDP names here) and picked out the best landing spot for their 2019 redraft fantasy value.
Boy, have things changed since the first version of this article went out, the NFL went from almost exclusively running the football, to finally swinging the ratio of plays towards the pass. In the 4th time frame of this series, however, things started to get crazy for the pass. Teams started to center their offense around the pass, like the run-and-shoot offense that some teams ran.
The fantasy playoffs are among us. Congratulations on making it if you have, and bravo to those who continue to put their best lineup out there regardless of their playoff status. This is a win-or-go-home week for most people, so let’s try to pick the best streaming options out there. First, as usual, let’s check out how the streaming options went last week.
Hello, Patrick Mahomes and Jared Goff owners. Welcome to Week 12 edition of streaming options. After Monday’s performance, I’m sure you’re sick to your stomach thinking that you have to start somebody else at quarterback. There is hope for you, I would feel less anxious than a Travis Kelce owner who needs a win this week. If you are that Travis Kelce fan, we’re going to try to get you a touchdown with your TE streamer in Week 12. The tight end wire doesn’t really offer much more than a touchdown prayer at this point.
Throughout the NFL season, fans hear about an endless string of sprains and strains. The latest in this cycle is the shoulder sprain sustained by Chris Ivory – RB for Buffalo Bills late in the Week 9 Bills-Bears game. Often these terms are used interchangeably by sports writers and fans, but they are actually 2 totally different yet similar injuries.
When The Buffalo Bills 1st round QB Josh Allen left Sunday’s game, the fans and administration at OBJ were probably surprised to hear what the injury was. UCL – ulnar collateral ligament injuries in NFL players, especially QBs are not nearly as common as they are in baseball players. Between 2010 and 2018 only 12 total were reported and of those 12 only 1 was treated surgically.
