Bills Playoff Hopes are Dim

The Buffalo Bills went out and blanked the Miami Dolphins 21-0 for their second straight win and fifth in 7 games. But this surge by the Bills maybe too little too late. It looks like they will probably need to win out and get some help if they're playoff hopes are to stay alive in the playoff race. Their last two games will be pretty tough hosting the streaking Tennessee Titans and visiting the dominant Baltimore Ravens. The Bills have the talent and they know how to win, now it's just a matter of putting it all together when it matters most.

Bills Make Quick Work of Jets

The Buffalo Bills made sure to dampen the New York Jets playoff hopes yesterday by winning a tough away game, 31-13. The game was all about the big plays for the Bills, 3 touchdowns came off of plays of 50 yards or more, a 57-yard touchdown run by Willis MacGahee, a 77-yard touchdown catch by Lee Evans, and a 58-yard interception return by Nate Clements. Bills are keeping hopes alive, and doing all that they can do to give them a chance to play in the postseason.

We Can Ignore Last Week

Buffalo had a loss and Houston is coming off a win. But when we head off to play the Texans on Sunday, we need to keep a couple of things in mind. Houston got their win over the one team they seem to be able to beat consistently. The Bills lost -- by one point -- to the Indianapolis Colts, the team than everybody loses to, at least so far this year (as well as almost all of last year).

It is hard to lose by one point, especially by what has been reported endlessly as "a rare miss by field goal kicker Rian Lindell." Rian, the key word there isn't "miss" or "Lindell." It's "rare." Buffalo fans know you're good. Keep that in mind when we go and restart a win streak against the Texans.

Bills’ Jason Peters Moves Left

Buffalo’s coach Dick Juaron has announced that Jason Peters will be starting against the Green Bay Packers in the new role of left tackle. At 6’4” and 328 pounds, Peters hopes to be more successful at protecting our QB J. P. Losman, who has already been sacked 21 times this season.

Green Bay has a guy who can put Jason Peters to the test in Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila, who has chalked up over 60 sacks in his 7-year NFL career. But Jason seems excited about the challenge, and Juaron has a lot of confidence in his talent.

Buffalo Not the Only Victims of NE Patriots

The AFC-leading New England Patriots have bumped off everybody they've encountered this year except the Denver Broncos. The Pats have five wins in a row on the road, and their cumulative scoring currently adds up to 156-64.

Sunday was still pretty embarrasing for the Bills, but I think we'll have a better shot against the Green Bay Packers, after we have a week off to regroup.

Shoveling Off to Buffalo

Here's the big news for this Friday the 13th in Buffalo Bills land: we are totally buried under snow. I know that sounds like a "dog bites man" kind of story around here -- we get snow up to our eyeballs and then some every winter. But this isn't December 13th--it's freakin' October 13th! I always loved a snow day, but before Halloween??

Some people

You know, I had a guy ask me why I bother following the Bills when there are other teams that are more worth watching, I just shook my head. I guess transplants from other cities just won't get it. I'm really pulling for the Bills this weekend against Chicago. They're going to have to push pretty hard with Chicago's defense, but I have every confidence that we'll win.

Things Break Buffalo’s Way This Time

Amazing what a difference turnovers can make! Last week when the New York Jets came to Ralph Wilson Stadium it felt like we were graciously offering them the ball every couple of plays. Yesterday, our Buffalo Bills were not so generous with the Minnesota Vikings – no turnovers for J.P. Losman or anybody else on our side and a couple of sweet interceptions for them! That game was a pleasure to watch, and I wish I would have had tickets to see it live from the stands.

Next week may be another story. The Chicago Bears did a number on the Seattle Seahawks and continued their win streak (4 and 0). But we’ll be cheering for ya, Buffalo, when you enter their den at Soldier Field.

Not Too Old To Remember Four Super Bowls

He calls himself a "rookie," and he is--at the job of General Manager. But Buffalo Bills fans remember Marv Levy as the coach who got the team into four consecutive Super Bowls. Can he help Dick Jauron pull off one of those? Realistically, probably not this season. But both those guys can be a steadying influence to pull the team together. Plus, even if we need some rebuilding this year, Marv Levy is not going to want to wait forever--after all, he is 81 years old! Welcome back, Marv!

If it were me, she’d have a boat too.

There are a few sappy Mother’s Day articles on the Buffalo Bills official web site today that go me thinking. It must be hard to be the mother of an athlete. Think of all the practices and games they have had to attend over the years. Young athletes are only involved in sports if their parents are willing to shell out the cash for uniforms and drive them to events and practices. I suppose that is why you always hear about rookies buying their moms nice houses as soon as they go pro.

The Little Guy Gets Stepped On

Ralph Wilson, owner of the Buffalo Bills, has come forward stating that the NFL’s new collective bargaining agreement is detrimental to the health of the ball clubs in smaller markets like the Bills. Mike Brown of the Cincinnati Bengals came out against those who criticized Wilson’s vote saying he didn’t understand the agreement implying his age was affecting his mental agility. I think that those people need to take a long hard look at why they would so blindly vote for this agreement when there are those speaking out to show the negative repercussions this will have on the smaller clubs.

Denney weighs his options.

Ryan Denney has officially re-signed with the Buffalo Bills. He took some time to investigate his options and finally settled on staying with the Bills. Denney has been with us since 2002 when we chose him in the draft. I am glad to hear he felt Buffalo was the best place to continue his career.

The Phoenix Suns are looking really good this season!

The Buffalo Bills will be watching the NFL Scouting Combine for signs of talent. I however will be watching the Phoenix Suns. I have been a Suns fan for years and I’m a total Steve Nash groupie. You can’t blame me; the New York Knicks aren’t doing anything spectacular this season.

From New York to Dallas

Now that the Super Bowl hype is over, this Buffalo Bills fan has turned to basketball for sports entertainment. I am sorry to see the New York Knicks in the state they are in and have been rooting for the Dallas Mavericks instead. They have a great team this year with Dirk, Terry, Diop and Howard on the floor.

Rumors Abound but Hope is Found

Surfing around the internet I have found many rumors concerning who will fill our vacant head coach position. The only reliable news I have found is the fact that the Buffalo Bills are interviewing Jim Caldwell, former assistant head coach of the Indianapolis Colts.

Buffalo Bills Lose Mike Mularkey

The Buffalo Bills owner, Ralph Wilson, announced this week that Head Coach Mike Mularkey has decided to resign. He has only been with the Bills for two seasons and in that time the team did not make any significant improvements. I don’t feel very confident that Mularkey could have taken us to a winning season, so I am not very sorry to see him go. We haven’t made the playoffs in six years and have not seen a winning season in that many years. This is the longest the Bills have gone without a victorious regular season and their record for 2005 was 5-11. Let’s hope our next coach is a good one.

Donahoe Jumps Ship – Mularkey to Captain

On Wednesday the Buffalo Bills owner Ralph Wilson revealed that GM Tom Donahoe will be leaving Bills and Mike Mularkey will be taking the head coach position. A replacement for Donahoe will be announced at a later date. Donahoe expressed that he feels the Bills have made little progress in the past few years and so it was time for him to move on. The Bills are restructuring in hopes of turning this team into a winner. Many believe that these changes will make a big difference and that we will see the change immediately. I’m keeping my fingers crossed but won’t hold my breath.
