Tonight, the Buffalo Sabres controversial “Tank” season may finally come to a fruitful end. Yes it was painful, but no more painful than the last decade of playoff-less Buffalo Bills football. Which got me thinking…what if at a certain point of their history the Bills pulled a tank of their own? Specifically in the year 2004, when the Buffalo Bills finished the season 5-11 and drafted 13th in the Quarterback rich 2004 NFL Draft.
We got him!
#ClayWatch turned out to be the hottest thing since #MarioWatch. Maybe hotter. But who is he? I’m here to help:
Name: Charles Clay
Do NOT mess with his name. Clay’s Father: “When he was growing up I told him if anyone calls you anything but your name it’s OK to punch them in the mouth”
Born: Little Rock, Arkansas
His father (also Charles Clay) was the starting Tight End for the late 1970s Lou Holtz coached University of Arkansas Teams. Father was a member of Arkansas 1970s All-Decade Team.
Full Name: Tyrod Taylor
Born: Hampton, Virginia
The flurry of recent Buffalo Bills trade & free agent activity has me itching to get back out to the The Ralph.
Here is a list of the 10 people I can do without when I get there: (Yes, I’ve sat next to ALL of them)
#1 The “STAND UP! Why aren’t you Standing Up!?!?” Guy/Girl
Listen pal, the team is 4-10, it’s 7 degrees outside, and we’re losing by 13. Just because you’re drunk as a skunk doesn’t mean I need to be standing up right now. Continue Reading →
Full Name: Jerome Jean-Marie Felton
Born: Duren, Germany
His mother is a native of Germany and was a gymnast there.
Sunday at 1:45PM, this happened:

Then this happened:
Fred Jackson told me last week that he wants to play 3 more years. If the Bills add McCoy and Powell, I question if those 3 years are in BUF — Mike Rodak (@mikerodak) March 8, 2015
AND then this:
And just 3 hours and 3 minutes later, it went to the darkest of places: Continue Reading →
NFL Free Agency officially starts in less than 24 hours. Unless it started already. I really can’t tell anymore.
Unlike in years past, no one at the Bills is selling me on the idea that, “We really just have let the big names and big contracts get out of the way because there are so many quality options in the second and third tier free agents.”
That may still be true, but as evidenced by the signing of Rex Ryan and the trade for LeSean McCoy, this year’s Buffalo Bills are looking to make a splash.
Splash away! Splash away! Go make it the splashiest! Continue Reading →
We needed another QB, we got another QB. Yet no one seems particularly excited. Maybe you will when you learn more about him:
Full Name: Matthew Brennan Cassel
Important: There’s only ONE L in Cassel
Born: Northridge, California
His family’s home was at the epicenter of a 1994 earthquake. His father got trapped under a marble column and their pool flooded their house. The house eventually was condemned.
Played in 1994 Little League World Series for the Northridge, CA Team.
BIG trade yesterday. The Bills played from a strength (Defense) to address an area that needed improvement (Offense). That’s smart, but who exactly is this LeSean McCoy character? Let’s take a look:
Full Name: LeSean Kamel McCoy
Born: Harrisburg, Pennsylvania
The St. Louis Rams are in trouble. Their owner Stan Kroenke has decided to build an NFL stadium in Los Angeles. Any time that your owner is actively building a playing facility 1,600 miles away from your team’s current home can’t be a good thing.
In response to this unsettling news, yesterday the city of St. Louis released renderings of a possible downtown St. Louis waterfront stadium. 64,000 seats for the price of a cool $1 Billion.
