Bulldog: The unraveling


You could kind of feel the lug nuts coming loose over the back half of the third quarter and into the fourth. A 24-9 lead for the Bills in Oakland was starting to get away. Read more here:

Bills season so far perfectly predictable


The preseason win total was eight. Last year's win total was eight. Had New England not pulled Tom Brady to rest him for its upcoming playoff run, the 2014 Buffalo Bills' win total probably would have been eight. This season the Bills have never been more than two games above or below .500.

What Week 10 feels like


The Bills thing to say right now is how it never changes. The 2016 season is so much like all the others in the playoff drought. "In the hunt", "run the table", etc., etc., etc.

How true is it?





I looked back through the drought to see just where the Bills stood after 10 weeks. Their best record after 10 weeks of a season since 2000 is 5-4, which they've had

For half the AFC it's 'just get in'


The Bills' season is almost half over and even though a massive contract was agreed to in the summer, discussing Tyrod Taylor's value and worth to the team is ramping up as a talk-show topic.
If you landed in this traffic jam, is it your fault?

The biggest mistake most sports fans make


Let's say you're me, and your workday just ended so it's time to leave Amherst and head to a bar to your home on Grand Island. You take the same route every evening, so you don't need any GPS direction. And the day was stressful so rather than listen to news or any more sports, you have music on. Read more here:
Pumping up a Bills win comes with the changing season.

Conclusion: Conclusions can wait


There they were Sunday, as regular an occurrence here in early fall as the changing leaves: This and that about how this first Bills win is proof that good days for this franchise finally have dawned.

Hot takes disguised as cold truths. And not always so well.

The new offensive coordinator called better plays, they said. The Bills played with desperation, they said. The crowd inspired the

COME ON, Tyrod Taylor


You saw the game, and now you've seen the play. The Bills' first offensive play of the 2016 season has a chance to define it. Read more here:

Schopp: Hard truth about Bills


Well we all know the Bills didn't "win the off-season". Unless the game was stupid stuff, in which case, maybe.

What's it like to be traded?


Even in the low minors Monday wasn't just another game day.

August 1 is Trade Deadline Day in baseball. Big-league clubhouses everywhere have ESPN on, or MLB Network, watching to see who gets moved -- your teammates, your opponents, yourself. Everyone's watching as the 4 p.m. ET deadline approaches, most of all fans wondering if their favorite teams stocked up.

You know how that

Schopp: Bills camp ennui


The weirdest feeling came over me one year ago.

It was late July and summer was breezing by the same as ever. Children running around in the yard, my friends and theirs jumping in the pool, mixed in with the occasional golf game or family day-trips. Cherishing the weather, each other, and the days before autumn's obligations, and chills.

Bills training camp comes around every late July,

How to sign Jimmys


So you want Jimmy on your team, eh?

You're a pretty good team without him. That's where you're starting. Fans are excited for the season, although around these parts, aren't they always? This year's team has some good players and should be scrappy. You'd like it to be deeper though, at least.

The coach is pretty new 'round here, and his defense-first style

For Tim Murray, left, the next couple of weeks are a big balancing act.

Schopp: Murray's prowess put to the test


There isn't a day when I wouldn't want to be a pro sports general manager. It's the only sports job I can think of that I'd trade my job for -- to run a team. The job security isn't so great, but the exercise of maneuvering to assemble the best team possible is enough for me to burn calories just thinking about it. Every avid fantasy sports player probably can

Schopp: Imagining sports as honest


Imagine if instead of saying all that business about how your stadium keeps you competitive, Roger Goodell just told the truth.
Ortiz hit this ball in the third inning, when he tries less hard than in later innings.

Hockey holding to its myths


Things are going pretty well this season for the Boston Red Sox. They have 229 runs, averaging 6.0 per game -- both numbers tops in the majors -- and at 24-14 they share the third-best record in baseball.

Boston won three of four over Houston last weekend, including a comeback win Saturday. Down one with two outs in the ninth, David Ortiz tripled in the tying run to force extra innings. In the
