After Tom Brady, who is the best player in the AFC East?

After Tom Brady, who is the best player in the AFC East?

Brady won the MVP in 2017 and is one of the greatest ever. So who is next? This week on the AFC East Roundup, we will be looking at who would be the best player in the division if it was not for Tom Brady. (He won the MVP in 2017 and is probably the greatest QB of all-time) We will be giving each team a representative and will be going on their on-field skill and production only. Any off-the-field antics will not be brought up in our discussion. Buffalo Bills: LeSean McCoy McCoy’s speed and elusiveness makes him difficult to tackle in space and makes him able to break off a big run at...

Updating the Steelers salary cap situation heading into training camp

Updating the Steelers salary cap situation heading into training camp

Analyzing how the salary cap might impact personnel decisions for the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2018. The dog days of summer are upon us and, with them, comes the most boring time of the NFL season. So what better time of the year to roll out how the Pittsburgh Steelers’ salary cap is shaping up? Just because the initial free agency period is over with, the NFL draft has concluded, and most of the draft picks have signed on the dotted line to potentially become millionaires, doesn’t mean cap should be ignored. Without proper cap management, a team starts out with multiple losses on their...

90 players in 90 days: DE Marquavius Lewis

The practice-squad holdover looks to crack the 53-man roster in his second shot with the Bills Last season, the Buffalo Bills had one surprise player make the roster at the defensive end position—former Denver Broncos end Eddie Yarbrough. The Bills plucked Yarbrough off the Broncos’ practice squad, and the then-24 year-old made enough of an impact that the Bills kept him on the 53-man roster. In our latest installment of “90 players in 90 days,” we discuss one of Buffalo’s own practice squad players trying to make the leap to the final roster in 2018. Name: Marquavius...

Random Thoughts From a Black-and-Gold Mind: Band geek confessions, Journey and more

BTSC’s resident “insane in the membraner” shares his maniacal thoughts on the Steelers. In Maryland, the kids in my county just got out of school on June 15th, so their summer just started. But I’m craving football, like Paula Deen’s husband craves things deep-fried and injected with five sticks of butter. I need football back soon. Offseason or not, my black-and-gold brain is revved up like an engine at 24 Hours of Le Mans. As always, I pass the ravings on to you. But first, I must inject you all with a syringe of sorries for the many improprieties I perpetuated last time...

Eric Wood, Josh Allen alter Bills’ salary cap landscape

Eric Wood, Josh Allen alter Bills’ salary cap landscape

The last time we updated you on the salary cap was before the 2018 NFL Draft. Following some trades, let’s take a look at where they stand. The last time we checked in on the Buffalo Bills salary cap was before the 2018 NFL Draft and before Eric Wood retired. We predicted rookie cap space based on where the Bills were picking knowing they probably wouldn’t stay put. With only rookie Josh Allen left unsigned, it’s a good time to re-evaluate as the Bills head into training camp with some roster holes still left they might consider filling. Buffalo’s adjusted salary cap is $177.2...

Steelers players explain their plans to prepare themselves for training camp

What are players doing between the end of minicamp and training camp? Several outline their plans to get ready for the 2018 season. If you're honest about the NFL season, you realize there's truly only one “offseason.” Despite having the longest stint between the league’s championship and the following season, the NFL doesn’t stop. You have free agency, the NFL Draft, Organized Team Activities (OTAs) and minicamp — only then comes the actual offseason. Yes, in just a bit more than a month between minicamp and training camp do players and coaches leave their teams to do what they...

The rookie from Penn State made headlines with a long field goal in minicamp Stephen Hauschka is the kicker for the Buffalo Bills. This seems to be all but a certainty. So, why bring in a second kicker for training camp? Imagine being the only person in your personnel group. Imagine taking each and every rep involved. Then, imagine what would happen if you were injured. In the latest installment of our “90 players in 90 days” series, we look at a player who made some waves in minicamp, but who faces a nearly impossible scenario when it comes to making the final roster.

Buffalo Bills retrospective: Anniversaries

We take a look back at some notable Buffalo Bills events The Buffalo Bills put an end to an infamous reign of futility with their 2017 season ending in playoff football for the first time since being swindled in Nashville a couple years back. The Bills will look to continue this success in 2018 and start building up positive history. In celebration of this newfound hope, we take a look back through the years and give a short list of anniversaries. To make the list at the designated intervals, the event needed to have occurred in the given year or be an achievement in recognition of the...

Steelers 2018 theme needs to be ‘United We Stand’, not ‘Divided We Fall’

If this group is more than just a collection of individuals, it would be nice for the leaders to show the way. The quest for winning a franchise-record seventh Super Bowl comes with added luggage and twists. It’s simple — what makes this group tick? Money, or winning championships? Ten years have officially passed since the Steelers won their last Super Bowl, and eight since their last trip to the big dance. If there is one thing that of those teams can pass on, it’s the lesson how it’s not just about unity, but also holding each other accountable. It kind of relates to many daily...

Making away games a “home away from home” for Bills fans

Making away games a “home away from home” for Bills fans

What it’s like at away games for Bills fans depends on how the Bills fan acts at the game The NFL dead season is upon us. The thrill of free agency, the draft, rookie minicamp, and OTAs are done, and the anticipation of training camp and the upcoming season are all we Buffalo Bills fans have for the next six weeks or so. For me, that dead time is when I plan my annual Bills away game. Since 2008, I have attended at least one Bills road game, with the goal of seeing them play in each NFL stadium. So far, I have been to San Diego, Dallas (the new stadium is amazing), Arizona, Miami (living...

Want to know when the Steelers and their rivals report to training camp? Here’s the complete list! If you’re a diehard fan of the NFL, this is the worst time of year.

90 players in 90 days: CB Vontae Davis

If the veteran can stay healthy, he is a legitimate NFL stud Head coach Sean McDermott revamped the secondary almost immediately upon his arrival with the Buffalo Bills. Gone were all four starters plus the nickel cornerback from Rex Ryan’s 2016 defense, and in their place were five new faces who outperformed the men they replaced by a great deal. In 2018, the Bills will return three of the five players who filled those same roles in 2017, but a veteran acquisition has the potential to make this iteration of the Buffalo secondary significantly better than the last. In the latest...

Buffalo Bills’ Sean McDermott falls in the middle of the pack of Sporting News’ head coach rankings

Buffalo Bills’ Sean McDermott falls in the middle of the pack of Sporting News’ head coach rankings

An improvement from last year but of course we think he is too low. After Sean McDermott was hired for the Buffalo Bills head coaching job, most fans and members of the media wrote the Bills off as a six-win team. McDermott brought in a lot of new faces to a depleted roster and got them to perform at a level no one expected. Despite some speed bump games in the middle of the season, the Bills were able to finish the last handful of games on a strong suite. Former Bills’ coach and general manager Rex Ryan and Doug Whaley left the team with one of the weaker rosters in the NFL that...

Will the Bills takeaway rate fall back in 2018?

Will the Bills takeaway rate fall back in 2018?

Interceptions and fumble recoveries are cited as a primary reason the Buffalo Bills had a successful 2017 season. Should we expect this important stat to fall off? The Buffalo Bills reaching the playoffs in a year where many predicted maximum tanking was a pleasant surprise. A flurry of takeaways from the defense helped spur many of Buffalo’s victories and is often cited as a catalyst in the playoff season. Some trepidation stems from this though, as the idea that interception and fumble rates will come back down to Earth permeates. Without the takeaways, success will be much harder....

What really happened: The Buffalo News loses half their sports staff in the span of a month

What really happened: The Buffalo News loses half their sports staff in the span of a month

The BN Blitz, pulling columns, and a competitor lying in wait all led to a massive overhaul at The Buffalo News this month. The Buffalo News had a dismal first quarter of 2018. According to an internal memo circulated to the entire News staff, it was their first quarterly loss in more than 40 years. Even still, their goal wasn’t to gut their sports department editorial staff - or any other department’s - says management. The News’ sports department had been veteran-laden. Vic Carucci, Jay Skurski, and Mark Gaughan were on the Buffalo Bills beat, and John Vogl and Mike Harrington had...

Bills Links, 6/22: Who will win the quarterback competition?

This will remain the top storyline of the Bills off-season Stop me if you have heard this one before. There is a three-way competition at quarterback for the Buffalo Bills. I do realize that many may be sick of this conversation, but until the Bills name a new starter, it will continue to dominate a number of the headlines. Today, it is Leo Roth of the Democrat & Chronicle sharing his thoughts on AJ McCarron, Nathan Peterman, and Josh Allen.

The duo also breaks down changes to the depth chart at quarterback and along the offensive line, as several players, notably second-year quarterback Nathan Peterman, stood out from the crowd with a terrific performance during mini-camp.

90 players in 90 days: RB Travaris Cadet

The veteran has return experience, but will it be enough to make the roster? The Buffalo Bills seem to have an established pecking-order at the running back position. LeSean McCoy will reprise his role as the workhorse, dominating carries and snaps as he continues to drive the Bills’ offense. Veteran Chris Ivory signed a two-year deal this offseason, and he will serve as the thunder to McCoy’s lightning, hopefully doing so more successfully than Mike Tolbert. After the top two, it’s anyone’s guess as to who will round out the depth chart. In our latest installment of “90 players...
