PITTSFORD - There are inevitable adjustments in the works from Buffalo's offensive cornerstones, Tyrod Taylor, LeSean McCoy and Sammy Watkins, each adjusting to a new offensive scheme under first-year offensive coordinator Rick Dennison and new head coach Sean McDermott. Each has their own individual challenges as well, starting with Taylor, who has vowed to make smarte…

PITTSFORD - Jonathan Williams strode out of training camp Friday afternoon without a shirt, his pads dangling from his right hand. Sweat dripped off his six-pack as the sun beamed down on his chest. A bystander made a comment about Williams' half-naked strut, to which he responded, "I work too hard for this!" This, which he was referring to as his physique, could also b…

Bills running back LeSean McCoy took exception to an Instagram post Sunday from Dolphins linebacker Kiko Alonso, calling the player he was once traded for a "BUM" and taking a shot at Alonso's new contract. "Boy ya dad wish u was as good as me," McCoy wrote, adding that Alonso's four-year deal worth up to nearly $29 million is "garbage." "My 2011 money," McCoy wrote.…

The Buffalo Bills on Sunday wrapped their 17th straight season without the playoffs. That's 272 thrilling episodes of Bills regular-season tackle football. It has been the longest-running playoff drought in the four major North American sports and would tie "Lassie" for fifth on the United States' list of longest-running primetime network series. "The Jack Benny P…

Tyrod Taylor's morning began with a car accident. Barely on his way to New Era Field, his black 2013 Mercedes G63 wagon was involved in a fender bender downtown. The Buffalo Bills sent a car to collect their quarterback. Saturday's game against the Miami Dolphins also started poorly for him. The Bills went three and out on their first two possessions. Taylor passed thre…

Remember those vibrating electric football games? Yeah, there was more tackling in those. In those Tudor Games tabletop enterprises, all the defenders have to do to stop the ball carrier is touch him. That's what the Buffalo Bills tried to devastatingly poor effect on Christmas Eve at New Era Field. The Miami Dolphins' would-be tacklers weren't much better, but th…

Three games into last season, BuffaloBills.com posted a story lauding General Manager Doug Whaley's roster-building acumen. The story declared Whaley was "awfully close" to "building a roster that can perennially compete for the postseason and championships." An examination of all 32 NFL rosters reveals Whaley has constructed the Bills in contradictory fashion, relyi…

Buffalo Bills fans deserve better. Sunday morning began with local and national reports about Rex Ryan's dubious future. Then the grounds crew tilled the rubber pellets out of New Era Field's artificial turf while trying to clear snow at halftime. All the while, the Pittsburgh Steelers plowed the Bills more thoroughly yet. The Bills were overwhelmed, 27-20, in a game…

When the Buffalo Bills revealed this year's promotional slogan, all I could think of were the ways it would backfire. It's a double entendre. The fan base is unfailingly loyal, and the team sure does love to hand off. Bills Run Deep. As does the pain. You have to go back a lot of years to remember when the Bills regularly thrilled their fans. The last of the Su…

The Buffalo Bills were only three-point underdogs on the road Sunday against the Oakland Raiders, leaders of the NFL's most competitive division. I didn't get it. What did Las Vegas know? Our resident handicapper, St. Joe's and Buffalo State grad Joe Staniszewski, expressed equal confusion during his Wednesday call from Las Vegas to "The Tim Graham Show" on SportsRad…

Paul Posluszny was two steps behind but probably couldn't see him through the exhaust fumes. LeSean McCoy was gone. On the first play out of halftime, the Buffalo Bills were on their own 25-yard line. Tyrod Taylor took the snap out of a pistol formation, pivoted to his left and tucked the ball between McCoy's forearms. McCoy locked his left hand, surgically repair…

LeSean McCoy's first seven carries were for minus-2 yards. His next two traveled 82 yards and crossed the goal line twice. McCoy, his surgically repaired left thumb in a splint, started terribly Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars. But he turned into a slasher right before halftime and lifted the Bills to a 28-21 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars. The lead…

Bills star running back LeSean McCoy and top receiver Robert Woods both left Sunday's game with injuries. McCoy's dislocated thumb is not thought to be overly serious, but it appears Woods could miss some time with his injured knee. Woods had an MRI after the game, and the results weren't encouraging, according to NFL Network. Woods reportedly suffered a sprain, whic…

A fifth Indiana Jones movie has been announced for 2019. The thought of 74-year-old Harrison Ford leaping the abyss, strafing the enemy, evading mayhem and wiggling out of danger seems far-fetched. Yet the film almost certainly will be a financial success. People won't be able to stay away. So much enthusiasm has been committed to the Indiana Jones franchise. We're c…
