The Worst Mock Draft Ever


She's back!

My daughter, Garnet, returns with her third annual hardcore look at the NFL Draft. In 2014 at the age of 2, she culled prospect rankings of numerous draft analysts and ranked them herself (OK, with my help) strictly based on aggregrate results. She would have drafted tight end Eric Ebron for the Bills that year, had they not traded up as they did. (After trading up the best

Five Tyrod Taylor outcomes





How will the Bills handle Tyrod's contract situation?

Here's to Sam Reinhart


The best untold story of this Sabres season, The Year of Jack Eichel, is how good Sam Reinhart is.

You watched Boston University games for the first time to see what Eichel is, and then the World Championships. You spent $300 on his jersey before he skated a professional shift. You (OK me) and Bulldog spent 25 minutes of valuable air time breaking to bits one of his many tantalizing

Another 'exciting' Sabres finish shaping up


Twenty-two games, at least half of which they'll play without Ryan O'Reilly. Five points up on last-place Toronto, with three games this March against the Leafs. Six days to the trade deadline, which probably will set several bottom-dwellers, somehow, back.

We're headed for another dramatic finish in the land of the Buffalo Sabres.

If it's excitement and drama you want from

Like Sabres did, Leafs making wily chess moves


Hockey games can be interesting. They were more interesting years ago but you still get the occasional wild one, a back-and-forth tussle with a scrap or two mixed in.

The playoffs are fun too but that's usually just on TV.

Regular seasons are so lengthy that too often you have matchups of weary opponents comprised of players just trying to stay afloat.

And top teams focused on the

Next up for Sabres: Deadline Day


The playoffs are a near-impossibility, and they weren't this year's mission anyway.No one is talking "tank", which became the buzzword for selling off older players and those on expiring contracts for youth and draft picks, something many teams like the Sabres have done and all teams like them should have. As a state of mind tanking is off the table, but if that's your word

A season's worth of futile finales


WARNING: This article is long, because it should be.

---------------------------------

Sixteen years, no playoffs. Bills fans know it well. Some might wear it as a tattoo, like a badge of honor, if it didn't need changing every year.

The scar of the playoff drought looks uglier if you add that only once all these years (2004) have the Bills made it to their final regular-season game

Leaf peeping, enviously


Tuesday night's Sabres-Devils game was so devoid of compelling action that your mind was free to wander, which can be good as long as it's not stumbling again and again over the prices of tickets and Harbour Club German Chocolate cake. 

I had a nice time with my brother-in-law and two friends, not that any of it was because of the hockey game. One friend was excited to hear the

'Quarterback purgatory', revisited


Somehow, a column at good-idea fivethirtyeight.com Monday announced the Bills as, to boil it down, a team with a good quarterback and nothing more. I read it, and there was no disclaimer anywhere about it being an April Fools joke. You need more than a good quarterback to win, Bills, it was declared, presumably to widespread uproarious laughter.

Perhaps some football fans digested that and

NFL quarterback designations, ranked


What's more fun in sports to discuss than NFL quarterbacks? So many versions of this parlor game: eye test vs. statistics, wins vs. yards, personality vs. performance. If it were an actual game you could play with friends surely it would be called Cam Newton, or at least he's the picture on the box.

The Bills this season have merged onto the quarterback highway -- the
Cordy Glenn's contract is done. Who should be next?
