Props to you, the readers, for providing some great questions this week in the Bills Mailbag. A programming note: If yours didn't make it this week, I've got it saved for next week. Let's get to it ... Viva Los Bills #PonchoPower asks: What returning starter from last season is the most likely not to make the team in 2019? Jay: First of all, well done on the name.…

The Buffalo Bills have something that has eluded them for a long time: Stability. The team is entering the third year under the leadership of coach Sean McDermott. That means the same defensive system for three years in a row. Offensive coordinator Brian Daboll will return for his second season on the job, so the offense will have continuity that it has long lacked. Las…

No one was in the house to hear Jason Milne laugh on that Friday night last October, with his wife and three young daughters out of town, and the former college defensive back felt compelled to share his joy. Milne rewound the televised game he was watching, hit play after a few seconds and held his iPhone vertically, pointing its camera toward the bottom right corner o…

The Buffalo Bills’ receiver corps got an extreme makeover Tuesday. The team agreed to contracts with both John Brown and Cole Beasley on the second day of the NFL’s “legal tampering period.” Both of those deals won’t become official until 4 p.m. Wednesday, at the start of the new league year. Brown’s signing, which was first reported by NFL Network’s Peter Schrager, …

A critical offseason is about to start for the Buffalo Bills. Year No. 2 of the Brandon Beane-Sean McDermott pairing produced a step back with a 6-10 record. That was not entirely unexpected, though, after the team moved on from starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor, replacing him with rookie Josh Allen. Perhaps more importantly, the front office also made the calculated de…

This is the first in a series on the Buffalo Bills’ key needs entering NFL free agency. This installment looks at wide receiver. It’s easy to point to wide receiver as the Bills’ most crying need. With Josh Allen being the face of the franchise’s long-term hope for success, the bulk of the blame for the Bills’ abysmal passing naturally falls on the catchers rather th…

This week’s Mailbag has a heavy emphasis on how the Bills should go about rebuilding on the offensive side. Let’s get right to your questions … Greg Tompsett asks: Do you think it makes sense to view the offensive line rebuild as a two-year project: a few free-agent signings and multiple draft picks, then further investment in free agency and the draft in 2020, viewing …

Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott continued to make changes to his coaching staff Wednesday, with wide receivers coach Terry Robiskie the next to go. The Buffalo News confirmed that Robiskie has been fired. He follows offensive line coach Juan Castillo in leaving McDermott’s staff. Alex Marvez, a SiriusXM NFL Radio host, was the first to report Robiskie’s depar…

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 …

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

Josh Allen stayed on brand Sunday. The Buffalo Bills’ rookie quarterback dazzled at times against the Miami Dolphins at New Era Field. He also sprinkled in a few head-scratching moments. First, the good. Allen broke the Bills’ single-season franchise record for rushing yards by a quarterback with a 35-yard gain in the third quarter. He finished with nine carries for …

Bills

Grading the Bills RUNNING GAME: F A non-factor all game. LeSean McCoy had six carries for 9 yards. His future with the Bills is looking cloudier with each passing week. McCoy rarely had room to run, which starts with his offensive line. Still, he doesn’t look like the same dominant player he’s long been. It says something when McCoy has a game like he did and undraft…

From working at a hot dog stand to dancing at a wedding to a long walk around Tuscaloosa, the six undrafted rookies on the Bills' roster had to find a way to deal with the likelihood they'd be passed over on April 28, the final day of the 2018 NFL Draft. Eight months later, they now have the opportunity of a lifetime. With Buffalo eliminated from playoff contention a…

There’s always a connection to Buffalo. My family’s favorite Christmas song is “Do You Hear What I Hear?” Specifically, Vanessa Williams’ version. Williams and her husband, Jim — a Depew native — are big Bills fans. With that in mind, here’s this weeks’ Christmas-inspired Bills Mailbag … Sam Ruggiero asks: Which beloved Bills career will finally melt away next sea…
