For Bills, Marrone, anything can happen


I've watched the last two Bills games from a bar. For the first of them, the Thursday night game in Miami, the place was very busy. A friend of mine is a bartender there, and at halftime, with the Bills leading 6-3, he had a minute to chat.

"What do you think so far?", he asked me.

"I think whatever we're going to care about from this game hasn't happened

Should Murray be willing to 'go downstairs'?


Twenty-two Sabres games to go and the quest for last place and Captain Generational McEichel is far from over. The gap was eight points but now it's five and Edmonton and Arizona still can't (won't?) pull away. The NHL trade deadline is in six days, a last chance of sorts for teams to spin off expiring veterans for future maybes.

Meanwhile, over here, the debate about the

Rock bottom and sky high


The Sabres are the worst National Hockey League team imaginable. They are last in almost every category -- goals, goals allowed, power play, Corsi, Fenwick, you name it. The fact that they are 29th out of 30 in penalty killing gets rewarded here with its own sentence.

The one thing we were sure of after last year's 52-point effort -- 21 wins in 82 tries -- is that this season's team

Does reading Rex's record lead us to EJ?


We like how they sound but they don't mean much. That's how I'd sum up the words Rex Ryan's been using to describe his feelings on the Bills team he just inherited. Everyone can tell he's got a lot of confidence, and experience, but a peek at his Jets record doesn't make him out to be too different than other recent Bills hires. (Dick Jauron was 36-49 upon being hired

Planes, tanks and automobiles


I hate the movie "Planes, Trains and Automobiles".

Hate it. Can't stand it.

Many of you love it though, right?

Why don't I love it too, I sometimes wonder. It's my generation. There are funny actors in it. Siskel and Ebert even liked it.

But I can't watch it. To me, it's painful. You're laughing when 50 random things in a row conspire to ruin Steve

Marrone exodus offers peek into Pegulas


So he wanted all season to leave, or he didn't. So they wanted him to stay, or they didn't. So he restricted Sammy Watkins' productivitiy to spite Doug Whaley, or Doug Marrone didn't. So they want people of their choosing in the organization's biggest jobs, or Terry and Kim Pegula don't.

However it all went down, here we are: the Bills' new owners are out in the

The "enemies" within


Would you recognize their faces yet? Can you pronounce their names? Do you know where they're from, their ages, even their uniform numbers?

They are Rasmus Ristolainen, age 20, of Finland, jersey number 55, and Nikita Zadorov, 19, Russia, 51.

As Jon Lovitz might say, it's time to get to know them. Because these two lads are together the leading reason why the Buffalo Sabres

Your 2015 Bills starting quarterback? The nominees are ...


You don't have to tell me. I know that I stretched things here. But your telling me is part of makes this special relationship we have so grand. So, please, do tell me how bad this list is. Tell everyone you know, in fact.

Here we have a list of 10 candidates to be the 2015 Buffalo Bills opening-day starting quarterback, ranked from least to most likely:

10. Eli Manning. Should the

Sabres on the warpath? What happened?


The Sabres' first 10 games this season were astonishingly bad, even for a team with these low expectations. Called a "Pee-Wee team" by their own coach, publicly. Deadfish home losses to Anaheim and Boston. Ten shots on goal against Toronto.

The conversation seemed over almost as soon as it had begun: The Buffalo Sabres will finish last.

But it isn't, on balance,

These Bills are better, but should be better still


I think overall, Bills fans would be enjoying this 2014 season more if more of them didn't think the team was blowing it.

These years can run together, and sound the same. Modest goals are set but not met, and fans chop away to explain how the Bills fell short. We do it every year; it can just become noise.

But not every season is the same, as incredibly similar the Bills' last nine
What do you think about the Alonso for McCoy trade?
  Love it. We've added an elite player to the offense.
  I'm not happy. Too much money for a RB and I hate losing Alonso.
