Bills Defensive Tackle Marcell Dareus Suspended for Week One Game Versus Colts

The NFL announced today that Bills defensive tackle Marcell Dareus is suspended for the team's first game of the season for violating the league's substance abuse policy, meaning that he will miss the game against the Colts. The Buffalo Bills have one of the NFL's best defenses, and with new head coach Rex Ryan there are a lot of hopes and expectations surrounding the unit.  They will get a test from the very beginning of the regular season, as in week one they will host the Indianapolis Colts and an offense that has a lot of hopes and expectations as well.  When the Bills face the Colts...

Buffalo Bills' Marcell Dareus suspended for one game

Just like last year, the Bills will be without a key defender for their season opener: last year, it was Nigel Bradham, and this year, it'll be Marcell Dareus. Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Marcell Dareus has been suspended for one game of the 2015 season, the NFL announced on Thursday afternoon. The suspension comes after two separate legal situations from last season came to a close earlier this spring. Dareus' suspension relates only to one of those, though: a drug arrest that violated the league's substance abuse program. Dareus will miss the team's Week 1 game against the Indianapolis...

DeflateGate: Picking Up the Pieces

I know things seem bleak right now. But let's all look big-picture. What a marvelous time to be a Patriots fan. No, I haven't lost my mind; I honestly believe that. This is just such an amazing time to be a Patriots fan, and I'm so, so thankful that I was around to live through what New England has accomplished over these past fifteen years. There are a lot of fans out there who are feeling pretty low right now, who are down on this team, on its owner, and on the league in general because of the events of the past few days. And thinking about that makes me sad; the offseason following...

The NFL is trolling the Patriots at this point

I suppose this could be completely coincidental, but I'm not sure I buy that. Thursday morning, the NFL Twitter account posted this tweet. I posted a screenshot just in case they wise up and delete it. Again, it might be nothing, but I really do hope the league's social media is trolling the New England Patriots. Although, there might be something amusing about them being completely oblivious to how this tweet can be read.

Miami Dolphins Finally on the Right Path to Success

Once again the revolving doors have been swinging at the Miami Dolphins training facility in Davie, Florida. But this time, the Dolphins have got it right. Player turnover has become a synonymous phrase with the Miami Dolphins for more than a decade.  It seems every few years the front office make a splash in free agency and draft players that are supposed to be the cornerstone of this franchise for years.  Unfortunately, that hasn't quite happened and once again we have found ourselves yet again in a situation where this organization is swinging for the fences in pursuit of the...

90-in-90 Breaking Down the Miami Dolphins Roster: Cameron Wake

Breaking down the Miami Dolphins' 90-man roster over 90 days. Today, we look at defensive end Cameron Wake. We bring back our annual look at the Miami Dolphins' roster heading into training camp, a series we call 90-in-90. Over the next 90 days (or a few more as roster changes happen), we will take a look at each individual player on the roster, review what they did in 2014 either in the NFL or in college, then take a look at how they might progress or regress this season, and the chances that player will make the roster. CAMERON WAKE 2014 Review: Wake has 38 tackles last season along...

Jets OTA Thread 5/21

Today is the final day for OTA's this week for the Jets. I am not sure many people were expecting news to come out of Jets OTA's that would end up trending on Twitter, but that happened yesterday. New offensive coordinator Chan Gailey stated that barring something unforseen, Geno Smith would start at quarterback Week 1. The Jets traded for Ryan Fitzpatrick in the offseason. Fitzpatrick has a history of moderate success in Gailey's system. Many figured he would at least get a chance to stake a claim to the job. Unless something changes, that now does not seem to be the case. I probably would...

DeflateGate: NFL Trolls Patriots on Social Media

The league is making it clear that they have a bone to pick with the Patriots. The NFL's integrity has no limits. One week after the league decided to create a brand new hashtag for their Instagram account as an opportunity to promote a picture of the helmet catch, they've taken their trolling of the New England Patriots just one step further. According to the NFL, head coaches "coincidentally" say "PSI" is needed to be a franchise QB. pic.twitter.com/508FXCVxys — Rich Hill (@PP_Rich_Hill) May 21, 2015 For a league that is so bent on trying to claim impartiality, this doesn't seem...

Jets Got It Wrong Naming Geno Smith Starter

I think the Jets made a mistake naming Geno Smith the team's starting quarterback. It isn't that Geno should have been left definitively out of the running for the job. There just should be a competition for the Jets. The Jets have player with established track records as quality starters. Darrelle Revis and Sheldon Richardson fit that description on defense. D'Brickashaw Ferguson and Eric Decker fit that description on offense. There are others. The team can reasonably conclude based on these players' past performances that they will be the best options. That does not exist at...

Over/Under: will EJ Manuel start four games again in 2015?

What does the future hold for EJ Manuel in 2015? You tell us. EJ Manuel, the first quarterback taken in the 2013 NFL Draft, is now in a three-man battle for the Buffalo Bills' starting quarterback job. If he loses, many believe that his days in Buffalo could be numbered. According to general manager Doug Whaley, this is a make-or-break year for Manuel. Manuel was thrust in to the starting lineup before he was ready, following a career-ending concussion for Kevin Kolb. This led to an up-and-down rookie season, plagued with injuries and inconsistencies. Manuel struggled with some of the...

New York Jets 2015 Opponents In Focus: Philadelphia Eagles

Week 3 sees the Jets come home for a big game against Chip Kelly's Philadelphia Eagles 2014 Record: 10-6 (2nd in the NFC East) Chip Kelly and the up-tempo Eagles are one of the most entertaining teams to watch in the NFL, and one of the most difficult teams to defend against. After a 6-2 start, it looked as though the Eagles were coasting to the playoffs. Even though Nick Foles was injured in a week 9 victory against the Houston Texans, it seemed as though the Eagles would progress to the play-offs with Mark Sanchez performing adequately in the QB friendly system, following a week 13...

Geno Smith Speaks At OTA's

With the news breaking that Gailey suspects Geno will be the opening day starter, the 3rd year QB took the time to meet with the media. On how the second day of OTAs are going... Pretty good. I think we are getting somewhere with learning the offense. Obviously getting the timing down with one another, quarterbacks to the wide receivers and running backs. Really seen a lot even from defense, so it's helping us out a bunch. On how comfortable he is with the offense... Being in my third year I feel like I'm still studying, still learning. Obviously, most of the concepts have been plays that...

Todd Bowles Speaks on OTA's

Jets head coach Todd Bowles had the following to say today at OTA's. Opening Statement… Obviously, the second day of OTAs, the first day for you guys. Obviously, Muhammad (Wilkerson) wasn’t here, Sheldon (Richardson) was absent and Brandon Marshall had something to take care of. Other than that, I think everybody was present. It is voluntary, but we got a lot of work done. We have a lot of things that we’re putting in, testing a lot of things, putting guys in certain situations, game-day situations. That’s why you saw the offense run after practice. It was pretty much a competition...
