As you might imagine, Nathan Peterman's meltdown in Week 1 inspired plenty of questions for this week's mailbag. Let's get to them ... Brendan Sweet asks: What are the chances the Bills bring in a veteran quarterback and release Nathan Peterman? If so, who would it be? Any chance they'd sign Colin Kaepernick? Brian Vattimo asks: Don’t you think the Bills should add a…

One player has lost his job in the wake of Sunday's embarrassing effort by the Buffalo Bills. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Monday evening that the team has waived defensive tackle Adolphus Washington. A 2016 third-round draft pick, Washington played 32 defensive snaps Sunday in a 47-3 loss to the Baltimore Ravens, finishing with a pair of tackles. By releasing Washi…

The Buffalo Bills find themselves right back where they were at the start of training camp: Without a starting quarterback. Coach Sean McDermott chose not to say Monday if it will be Nathan Peterman or rookie Josh Allen under center Sunday for the home opener against the Los Angeles Chargers. “Still going through it,” McDermott said. “Certainly respect where everyone…

CHICAGO – Gamesmanship apparently never stops for Sean McDermott. The Buffalo Bills’ head coach elected not to announce a starting lineup before Thursday’s preseason finale against the Bears at Soldier Field. What’s more, the Bills didn’t provide a list of those who would not play at all. For comparison, the Bears listed 37 players who would sit out the game. That’s …

PITTSFORD – Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Adolphus Washington did a bit of thrill-seeking this offseason. Washington and his girlfriend did the CN Tower EdgeWalk in Toronto, a hands-free walk on a 5-foot-wide ledge around the circumference of the tower’s main pod 116 stories above ground. “It was my girlfriend’s birthday and she talked me into doing it,” Washington …

The Buffalo Bills have the anchor for the middle of their defense. The signing of former Panthers first-round draft pick Star Lotulelei in free agency gives the Bills a 6-foot-2, 315-pound rock to take on multiple offensive linemen. General Manager Brandon Beane and coach Sean McDermott are obviously familiar with Lotulelei's work from their time with him in Carolina. T…

If a franchise quarterback magically appeared on the Buffalo Bills’ roster tomorrow – don’t hold your breath – there is little doubt the next-biggest team need is a big man for the middle of the defense. Or better yet, big men. The trade that sent Marcell Dareus to the Jacksonville Jaguars midway through the 2017 season opened one hole in the starting lineup, and Kyl…

The drought is dead. The Buffalo Bills finally ended a 17-year postseason dry spell, leading to mass celebrations, six-figure charitable donations and hope that, finally, the team is on the right path under the leadership of General Manager Brandon Beane and coach Sean McDermott. Before attention turns squarely to planning for 2018, though, here is one final look bac…

The Buffalo Bills will play meaningful football for the entire 2017 season. Their 24-16 victory Sunday over the Miami Dolphins guaranteed that the Bills will be alive in the AFC playoff race through the final game of the year – when they will visit those same Dolphins in South Florida. Before that looms a trip to New England for the biggest game in ... well, a really lo…

My takeaways from the Bills’ had-to-have-it win over the Dolphins on Sunday at New Era Field. 1. Exhale, Bills fans. LeSean McCoy is OK. On the play in which he topped a huge milestone of 10,000 career rushing yards, McCoy stayed down hurt. After coming out of the lineup, he missed just one play. McCoy capped off an excellent first half with a 16-yard touchdown catch to…

Bills

One of Sean McDermott’s stated goals this season is to build a football team that peaks in November and December. The Buffalo Bills’ rookie head coach has failed so far in that regard. After opening with a 3-1 record in the first quarter of the season and sitting at 5-3 at the midway point, the Bills have dropped to 6-6 at the quarter pole. A three-game losing streak ca…

Rob Gronkowski put on a clinic Sunday at New Era Field, up until his illegal hit on Bills cornerback Tre'Davious White near the end of the game. No matter how the Bills tried to defend him, the New England tight end proved he was too good to be stopped. Here's breakdown of Gronkowski's nine-catch, 147-yard day: X Gronk beat the blitz three times for 61 yards. One …

At least the Chiefs lost. If you’re looking for a positive to come out of Sunday for the Buffalo Bills, that’s about the only thing I can find to offer you. The 23-3 loss to the New England Patriots at New Era Field felt like Exhibit No. 1,000 in the never-ending dominance between the two teams. It feels like Buffalo is as far away as ever from offering any type of chal…

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, …

Bills

It would have been easy for the Buffalo Bills to make an example out of Adolphus Washington. The second-year defensive tackle was arrested in his home state of Ohio back in July on a misdemeanor charge of improperly carrying a concealed firearm. With a new coaching staff that placed a big emphasis on character under Sean McDermott, the Bills could have simply cut Washin…
