Beating The Champs, And The Fallacy Of Great Super Bowl Winning Coaches

29 Sep

Today we saw something quite interesting, and quite indicative of the way the National Football League is trending. It’s been so long since the Bills have seen true consistency and quality, we’ve continued to believe the old theory: Only the best coaches can win Super Bowl rings.

Overnight Success Was Never The Plan In 2013

26 Sep

You guys who are already complaining and fretting over another lost season, grow up. We’ve been here before.

Andy Reid leads his 2-0 Kansas City Chiefs into Lincoln Financial Field to face his former team, 1-1 Philadelphia. It’s not clear whether Eagles fans will remember […]

Maybe the parity wheel is finally turning Buffalo’s way

17 Sep

Time and time again we hear all of the canned ideas about the NFL being a league of parity. Buffalo Bills fans like myself have been wondering for too long when that would manifest into a season of success. The fact is, winning takes years to develop. Early seeds need to be planted in order […]

Buffalo Roundup: Buffalo 24, Carolina 23

16 Sep

We apologize for the lack of coverage about the first game of the season, a 23-21 loss to the New England Patriots. We were at the stadium for the game, but time constraints prevented publication. We may have an article about that game later this week. -Ed. Last season, we tried a simple recap structure […]
