Paying the Bill: Fitzpatrick deal benefits both... →
Fitzpatrick was scheduled to — and will still — make $3.22 million this season as he was in the final year of a three-year $7.4 million contract. He will now receive a $10 million signing bonus on top of that. And in March, Fitzpatrick will receive a $5 million option bonus. Thus, within the next five months, he will add $15 million to his career earnings, dwarfing what has been...
Fred Jackson MVP Watch →
Take a step back and really look at Chan Gailey’s system in Buffalo, because Jackson is the key player in this offense. The RB has posted over 1,000 yards of total offense (721 rushing, 353 receiving) and has 6 TDs to go along with it. Jackson has shown top tier ability to cut back, exploit the second level of the defense and is a tough matchup for a SS/LB in the passing game. Take him out of that...

What makes Bills tick? Football, fun, food,... →
There are many reasons the Bills are one of the AFC’s breakout team at 4-2. The players know coach Chan Gailey’s system better, and Gailey, in his second year as coach, now knows how to use those players better. Wide receiver Stevie Johnson, running back Fred Jackson and Fitzpatrick have improved. The defense leads the league in forcing turnovers, including four interceptions of Tom Brady in the...

Up first let’s have a look at the teams, and see who are the top dogs? Well if you follow us on twitter, it was mentioned that last week the Bills were top of the pile, and after that victory over the Patriots, nothing has changed. They’re still at No.1 with just 12 total pressures given up, including just the one sack (Erik Pears to Tamba Hali). That’s quite a turnaround for a unit that...

Borrowing From Belichick, the Bills Use Receiver ‘Knots’ to Sow Chaos; Poof! You’re a Fullback
Can You Copyright a Football Play? Ask Bill... →
The Bills have tweaked the Pats’ innovation by mashing up Belichick’s extra-receivers formation with a move that every kid who plays pick-up basketball knows: the pick. Setting picks – i.e., using one receiver to obstruct a defender’s access to another receiver who is not carrying the ball – is generally against the rules in football (it is treated as offensive pass interference). But there is a...
Fitz-Gailey combo is well seasoned →
Maybe we should change the title of this blog from “The Good Times Buffalo Bills” to “RYAN FITZPATRICK, I LOVE YOU!” The marriage of the football minds of Chan Gailey and Ryan Fitzpatrick is producing epic quarterback play for the Buffalo Bills. Fitzpatrick now has played 16 games, the equivalent of a full season, under Gailey. The results: Fitzpatrick has passed for...
Ryan Fitzpatrick has the Bills charged →
Fitzpatrick laughs at himself too. He coined the nickname “The Amish Rifle,” drives a pickup truck, and might be the only quarterback who wears his wedding ring when he plays. He’s married to Liza Barber, a former soccer star at Harvard, and their engagement story is a classic. During his rookie season, Fitzpatrick bought a ring with money from a joint bank account he shared with...

There’s no place like Buffalo in NFL →
This might be the last simple place left in the NFL. A place where fans navigate tiny roads and pass signs for $10 parking on people’s front lawns, and they can walk to a stadium that doesn’t look like the Emirates Palace. And when they do visit they can find an RV in the middle of the parking lot where a Hall of Fame quarterback tailgates just like them – every game-day morning.

The Bills are a shocking 3—0—take that, Pats!—thanks to a Harvard-bred quarterback and a spirit of togetherness that reflects their city
