Source: Parrish is “finished” in Buffalo

  • Posted on October 19, 2009 at 1:00 pm

parrishtradeWhile Adam Schefter’s ESPN comments revolved this past week on rationalizing a Terrell Owens trade, the Buffalo Bills are very likely to move a receiver within the next 48 hours. That receiver however, will not be Owens.

I spoke to someone knowledgeably close to the organization and the  Bills are looking to cut ties with disgruntled wide receiver/kick returner Roscoe Parrish, and a move will be coming by the middle of the week at the latest.  I’m told the team has absolutely no plans to trade Owens.

But I’m told that Parrish is “finished” as a Buffalo Bill.

Newton Named MAC Defensive Player of the Week

Mike Newton was named Mid-American Conference East Division Defensive Player of Week on Monday for his performance in the Bulls’ 21-17 win over Akron on Saturday.

The senior safety had eight tackles, a fumble recovery, an interception and a pass breakup against the Zips. Newton’s turnovers were very timely as he recovered a fumble at the Buffalo six-yard line and intercepted a pass in the Buffalo end zone to keep Akron off the scoreboard.

Jauron Isn’t Thinking About Billboard

  • Posted on October 19, 2009 at 12:16 pm

The Buffalo Bills overtime victory over the Jets Sunday did little in the way of influencing creator Ryan Abshagen’s thinking. As scheduled, the billboard, paid for by its site’s donations went up for anyone driving the Interstate-190 South to see at exactly 12:01am this morning.

The advertisement, which encourages Bills owner Ralph Wilson to “clean house” by firing head coach Dick Jauron along with Tom Modrak and John Guy, will flash up to 5,000 times per day for the next week. Site organizers are still soliciting donations in hopes of either extending the life of the billboard, or to add another one.
Multiple recent reports by local and national media saw the billboard story pick up a lot of steam, especially following the Cleveland debacle last week.

  • Posted on October 19, 2009 at 10:22 am

An ugly weekend just turned uglier for the Portland Pirates after they were handed a 7-2 drubbing by the Providence Bruins in front of 3,338 at the Dunkin Donuts Center on Sunday afternoon.

The Pirates once again found themselves in trouble with special teams as they gave up four power play goals including the game winner to Bruins’ defenseman Andy Wozniewski late in the first period.
