We love Rex Ryan stories, and so here's another that doesn't even involve the Bills. It involves his job with the New York Jets before he even came to Buffalo. Ryan was among the many in the last few days to criticize the Giants' decision to bench Eli Manning in exchange for Geno Smith, who was drafted by the Jets in the second round in 2013. Ryan said this to the Ne…

Jonesing for yet another reason to hate the New England Patriots? The worst day of a Patriot's life probably ranks among the more rewarding experiences of his career. That's right. Even when a Patriot gets fired, there's a chance he'll look back upon the moment gratefully. For about as long as the Buffalo Bills have failed to reach the playoffs, we've been inundat…

Curses aren't real. But good luck telling that to anyone who has been ahead of Ryan Fitzpatrick on a depth chart. Fitzpatrick has a chance of starting against the Bills this week after Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston sprained the AC joint in his throwing shoulder last Sunday against the Cardinals. Winston wants to play if the pain is manageable, but he wasn't allo…

TORONTO -- Trent Dilfer wholeheartedly endorses the Buffalo Bills' move to bench EJ Manuel. A significant reason is because Dilfer wholeheartedly disagreed with their decision to draft him 16th overall in 2013. Dilfer, a weekly guest with Dave Naylor and me on TSN 1050 in Toronto, shared several blunt opinions on Manuel's NFL future. The Pro Bowl quarterback and Super B…

The AFC East looks like a volatile brew for 2014. With major changes happening on coaching staffs or in front offices of the other three clubs, it can be argued the New York Jets are the division's most stable team. While on Friday's edition of "TSN Drive" with host Dave Naylor, we discussed the changes happening in the AFC East and whether the New England Patriots are o…
