Bills

Welcome to the first celebrity Bills Mailbag. Check out the first question to see what I mean. Topics this week include the possibility of adding Antonio Brown in a trade, what the team might do with all of its cap space and what’s in store for Duke Williams. Let’s get to it … Luke Russert asks: Do you think there’s a mindset within One Bills Drive that the clock rea…

Bills

Welcome to the mailbag. This week, we're tackling the future of Thomas Davis, comparing the two Duke Williams, debating Shaq Lawson's future and projecting the number of trades the Bills will swing. Let's get to it ... Rick McGuire asks: Any chance the Bills sign former Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis? Seems to me he could be a great teacher/mentor for the younger guys…

Sean McDermott is right to believe the Buffalo Bills are better off now, after finishing the season with a 6-10 record, than they were last year, after going 9-7 and losing a wild-card playoff game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. “I’m not a good loser in terms of 6-10,” the coach said during his season-ending news conference Monday. “I’m not going to go there with tha…

Analysis

Sean McDermott was asked Monday during his season-ending press conference if it was fair to grade his team on a curve, given the youth of the roster and the salary cap situation heading into the year. “I understand where you’re coming from with that and I’m more concerned right now with the direction of the organization, the direction of our football team,” the Buffalo …

Logan Thomas carried a basketball as he walked through the Buffalo Bills’ locker room Monday. He was about to place it in a cardboard box, along with other personal belongings. “It helps keep things light around here,” the Bills’ tight end said. “Half the locker room played basketball at some point in their life.” Thomas had taken over being the team’s keeper of the bask…

Grading the Buffalo Bills RUNNING GAME: B+ Once again it was rookie quarterback Josh Allen leading the way. He finished with nine carries for 95 yards. That might not be a long-term strategy for success, but it worked Sunday. Allen is something to watch when he gets in the open field. His 30-yard touchdown run looked easy. LeSean McCoy got a huge hole – a rarity this…

Bills

If you’re looking for something promising, something to provide hope for the Buffalo Bills in 2019 and beyond, you got it Sunday. Josh Allen provided a ton of it with his passing and running in the Buffalo Bills’ 42-17 victory against the pathetic Miami Dolphins. Perhaps the rookie still has more to prove about whether he’ll be the long-term franchise quarterback the Bil…

Topics hit this week in the Bills Mailbag include the likelihood of trading down, what happened to the run defense last week, and of course, Kyle Williams' retirement announcement. Let's get right to it ... Doug Pagano asks: The Bills have the 31st-ranked scoring offense, averaging only 15 points a game. What are the chances that coach Sean McDermott looks to make a cha…

Here are my five takes on the Buffalo Bills’ season finale against the Miami Dolphins Sunday at New Era Field: 1. Let’s see if it’s possible for the Bills to show even a decent level of competence for a whole game. That wasn’t the case last Sunday, and it resulted in a 24-12 loss against the New England Patriots. That easily could have been a Bills upset win had receiver…

Every team needs its rock. Not just a leader. Not just an experienced veteran with wisdom to offer younger teammates. A rock. Someone everyone can lean on. Players. Coaches. Management. That's what Kyle Williams was to the Buffalo Bills. It is hardly a coincidence that you saw him at the center of those celebratory locker-room scenes captured by the Bills' v…

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Tom Brady doesn’t look like the same force of nature that’s led the New England Patriots to eight Super Bowls and five championships, owning the Buffalo Bills like no other opponent along the way. The 41-year-old future Hall of Famer, coming off back-to-back losses in December for the first time since 2002, put forth perhaps his worst performance in …

Bills

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – You see the flaws that had resulted in a two-game losing streak for the first time since 2002. Tom Brady throwing interceptions and missing throws he typically completes. Rob Gronkowski not catching a single pass for only the fourth time in his career. Those haven’t been so familiar during the New England Patriots’ dynasty and their domination of the B…

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – You definitely see the flaws. Tom Brady throwing interceptions and missing throws he typically completes. Rob Gronkowski not catching a single pass. Those haven’t been so familiar during the New England Patriots' dynasty and their domination of the Buffalo Bills. Then, you see the final score: Patriots 24, Bills 12. That’s very familiar. Despite loo…

Here are my five takes on the Buffalo Bills’ game against the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium: 1. The Patriots have issues and seem more vulnerable than they’ve been in a long time. Yes, those same words have been written and spoken many times, only to prove baseless after the Pats reached the Super Bowl. But the circumstances prompting increased media talk of t…
