The 1983 quarterback draft class is the gold standard. This year's group probably won't pan out so well, but silver sure can shimmer. The Comstock Lode, the massive silver vein in Nevada's western mountains, made many men rich and established much of America's Pacific infrastructure. There was so much silver, the U.S. Mint opened a branch in nearby Carson City. …

For Bills fans, Super Bowl LII turned out to be a glorious, bountiful, smorgasbord of schadenfreude, watching the New England Patriots lose a heartbreaker to the high-flying underdog Philadelphia Eagles. Nick Foles played the foil and the game of his life; believing in unicorns, tossing up rainbows, witnessing his receivers defy gravity and making a series of miracle ca…

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski was noncommittal after Sunday's Super Bowl when asked if he planned to return next season. Gronkowski, the game's best tight end, surprised some when he suggested he needed to evaluate his future and would reflect on the season and talk to his teammates. Amherst native Gronkowski, who turns 29 in May, is still near the to…

New Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll joined the New England Patriots' coaching staff in 2000 as part of Bill Belichick's first coaching staff. He can thank Nick Saban for at least getting his foot in the door, according to an outstanding story on the relationship between Saban and Belichick that appeared on Monday Morning Quarterback. Here is how the story de…

By now, serious Buffalo Bills fans can recite what their team must do Sunday to reach the playoffs. The Bills, of course must win. They also need games on each coast and in the middle of the country to fall their way and break any ties. "When you're in your last game and dependent on other people out of your control," Bills Wall of Famer Joe Ferguson said, "it's just…

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — The loss of Mike Gillislee hasn't hurt the Buffalo Bills nearly as much as fans expected. Yes, he likely would have offered an upgrade over Mike Tolbert when giving LeSean McCoy breathers throughout the season. But much of the fear emanated from the thought of Gillislee joining the New England Patriots and helping the Evil Empire continue to thriv…

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Both teams have downplayed the vengeance. Buffalo Bills cornerback Tre'Davious White skillfully counteracted inflammatory statements he made right after New England Patriots tight Rob Gronkowski delivered a flying elbow to the back of the rookie's head just three weeks ago. Gronkowski twice said Friday he has concentrated on preparing "with the bo…

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Since leaving the Buffalo Bills, cornerback Stephon Gilmore has roused the rabble with comments about how much he enjoys the way his new team operates. In praising the New England Patriots for the traits that have made them a dynasty or at the very least relevant, Bills fans have taken Gilmore's words as insults toward them. To wit, he tweeted: "M…

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — For seventeen unremitting years, the New England Patriots have thumped the Buffalo Bills' skulls. Since 2001, no AFC East team has finished with a better record. Teams only occasionally have won the division on tiebreakers, but that's as good as life has been within the division since Tom Brady became Bill Belichick's starting quarterback. Here th…

If the New England Patriots are going to win the Super Bowl this season, it's going to require Tom Brady's heaviest lift ever. The current Patriots defense is worse than any of the defenses that helped Brady to his previous five Super Bowl rings. This isn't to say the New England defense is bad. It's respectable. New England stands sixth in the NFL in points allowed,…

Patriots coach Bill Belichick told Boston area reporters Monday that he had "nothing to add" on Rob Gronkowski's late hit on the Bills' Tre'Davious White in the fourth quarter. "I think Rob addressed it," Belichick said on a conference call. Gronkowski's late hit sent White into the league's concussion protocol. Gronkowski was not ejected but the league is reviewing …

While many of us focused on the final score, Tyrod Taylor's injury, the possibility Nathan Peterman will start again, Rick Dennison's play calls, the run defense's struggles and Tom Brady's historic dominance of the Buffalo Bills, the rest of the country was agog over Rob Gronkowski's filthy hit. The former Williamsville North star smoked a prone and helpless Tre'Daviou…

Audie Murphy was as triggered in Ramatuelle as Buffalo sports fans are these days. Sorry if you need to research that reference. I've spent the past four weeks looking up when stats were this bad for the Buffalo Bills. You can take a few seconds out of your postgame hangover to humor me. What doesn't take a Google search to understand is that Buffalo's offense has be…
