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

Sabres shouldn't give lottery a second thought


If cigars didn't turn my stomach I'd be up for one. It's time to light a smoke, squint, and sit with what the Sabres have accomplished.

Despite the incessant ink-stained protestations that have hassled them for months, the Sabres greet this day in prime position for a rise to power. It wasn't easy, and it wasn't popular, but they did exactly what they should have: take it

If Sabres don't win lottery, here's who should


Hello, how are enjoying your day?

Here, skies are bright and it's just not the weather. Not everything in life is hockey, no, but for the last couple of months I've felt like it is. I stepped, willingly, into the cauldron that was the controversial 2014-15 Sabres season, and when the race for last place tightened in recent weeks, because of my job I had no way out. I lost sleep. I was

Last-place buzz about to get louder


Wasn't it fun being on ESPN last week? Who knew they still had our address?

Last Thursday's overtime Sabres loss to Arizona provided good fodder for national sports talk, with fans openly rooting for the opponent. Kornheiser and Wilbon discussed our emotions on "PTI", and Van Pelt and Russillo did the same on their ESPN Radio show. So did Mike Greenberg on his, which

The Sabres and what's most important


Edmonton, 55 points, eight games left.

Arizona, 54 points, seven games left.

Buffalo, 48 points, eight games left.

 

Race for 30th: The final weeks


Monday night in sports the Edmonton Oilers poured in four goals on the time it took me to drive from downtown Buffalo to Grand Island and, by winning their game, moved five points ahead of the Sabres at the very bottom of the NHL standings.

A chance to breathe.

Arizona, meanwhile, fell 1-0 in Los Angeles and is now tied with Edmonton for 28th. The Coyotes and Oilers have tonight off while

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
What would your reaction be if the Bills drafted a RB in round 2 or 3?
  Good idea. It's ground and pound so bring in a top young RB.
  NO!!!!!! I'd draft anything but a RB in those rounds.
  I don't mind drafting a RB but wait till day 3.
