Bill Belichick is the best coach in NFL history, so there's a tendency to eventually agree with him even when you initially disagree with decisions that seem suspicious. You eventually come around to thinking: Belichick knows more about football than anyone else, he rarely makes mistakes and therefore I must be wrong. Who would trade Drew Bledsoe to a division rival? Be…

If the least popular guy in a desperate football…

Sean McDermott smiled Monday when he was asked about his honeymoon phase coming to an abrupt end after his first loss as a head coach. McDermott has had a relatively easy ride since he was hired in January, but the questions became more pointed and less polite during his session with the media. It should be expected when a team scores three points in a loss, as the Bill…

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Kyle Williams stood in front of his locker in the bowels of Bank of America Stadium, squinting and sporting a nice shiner under his right eye.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – One of the main reasons Terry Pegula hired Sean McDermott was to repair a defense that had gone to pieces under Rex Ryan. Yes, the Bills were rebuilding and weren't expected to be a contender. But if McDermott got the defense playing at a h…

CHARLOTTE — One of the drawbacks of covering the Bills during the playoff drought is that the stories tend to repeat themselves. There's a redundant quality to persistent defeat, a hollow ring to the same old sad song. I had expected to be finished with Tyrod Taylor by now. This isn't personal. Taylor is a fine man, a willing leader and an often spectacular player. But …

In case you missed it, Wednesday was the silver anniversary of the famous No Punt Game. On Sept. 13, 1992, the Bills beat the 49ers at old Candlestick Park, 34-31. It remains the only regular-season game in NFL history in which neither team punted. I thought about that game Friday morning, while watching a replay of the Thursday night game between the Bengals and Texans…

Mike Tolbert has never been short of chips for his broad shoulders. The Buffalo Bills' running back has been doubted his entire NFL career. For being too short. For being too slow. For not being fast enough. Even for being "too fat." All those slights have been the motivational fuel that has powered a 10-year career. “You see so many guys with the talent and the a…

So what if they win? What if the Buffalo Bills actually beat the Carolina Panthers Sunday? Everything changes, right? The building-for-the-future talk suddenly gives way to a discussion of the here and now, doesn't it? No longer would the Bills have the look of a team that supposedly gave up on this season. Maybe not to the degree of the New York Jets, who…

Tre'Davious White has a degree in sports administration from LSU and hopes to be a coach or AD some day. The kid shows promise. One week into his first regular season, the rookie seems well-versed in the art of coach-speak. "You need to stay grounded and do the things the coaches are teaching us," White, the Bills' starting cornerback, said Wednesday. "It's important to…
