Anthony Lynn never bought into the hype. While the idea was pushed that the former interim coach of the Buffalo Bills was a “virtual lock” to get the permanent job at the end of the 2016 season, Lynn said this week that thought never crossed his mind. “At the end of the season, you're interviewing for jobs,” he said this week. “You're talking with your agen…

You have to be worried about the talent level of the Buffalo Bills' front seven in the wake of Sunday's 47-10 shellacking at the hands of the New Orleans Saints. The defense of Sean McDermott and Leslie Frazier relies on a dominant front four. McDermott benefitted in Carolina from the beefy defensive tackle combination of Kawann Short and Star Lotulelei, both high-end, …

Grading the Bills RUNNING GAME: F Maybe this is harsh, but now is no time to be lenient. LeSean McCoy got off to a good start, with a 36-yard gain on the first possession, but managed just 13 yards on his other seven carries. Mike Tolbert rushed twice for minus-2 yards. It’s at the point where we need to ask why he’s on the roster. Any carry by someone other than…

Preston Brown watched this offseason as, one by one, the Buffalo Bills said goodbye to his veteran teammates. Stephon Gilmore? Off to New England. Aaron Williams and Corey Graham? Cut. Robert Woods? Back home to L.A. Sammy Watkins and Ronald Darby? Sent on their way in trades. "I mean we traded away some good players, some good players signed other places, but I thin…

Grading the Bills RUNNING GAME: D So maybe this zone-blocking scheme is an issue. For the second straight week, LeSean McCoy and the Bills’ vaunted rushing attack was stymied. McCoy managed just 21 yards on 14 carries, finding precious little room to run. Backup Mike Tolbert had more success, carrying 11 times for 41 yards. The Bills stuck with the run, attempting …

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Brandon Beane's parents knew it was pointless to say goodbye before the Buffalo Bills' charter buses pulled away from Bank of America Stadium. Bob and Cindy Beane rose glumly from their seats, the season tickets they've had for 18 years in Section 340, while a song they've always relished hearing, "Sweet Caroline," played Panthers fans out the ais…

If the team’s general manager and head coach can nab a franchise quarter…

"Slow your roll," some readers said. "Way too early," others claimed. "Give 'em time, for cryin' outs," I heard. My takeaway from the Buffalo Bills' preseason opener last week was their disconcerting penalty total. They committed 13 penalties. The Minnesota Vikings accepted 10 of them for 106 yards. All those flags irked Bills coach Sean McDermott, but many fan…

So when he was still there at the end of the first round Thursday night, General Manager Doug Whaley got to work, calling each team at the top of the second round looking to move up to make sure the Alabama linebacker landed in Buffalo.
