Bills Ready To Promote Hardy.. Who Gets Cut?

  • Posted on November 10, 2009 at 11:53 am

After missing nearly ten months of football, 2008 second round draft pick James Hardy officially returns to the Buffalo Bills this week. Barring a last minute setback at practice over the next few days, Hardy will be taken off the PUP list and added to the active 53-man roster.

The Bills have a lot invested in Hardy, including the high draft selection last year. They are eager to find out what they have in the former Indiana University star, as his rookie season last year is hardly enough to evaluate his future.

With Josh Reed and Terrell Owens both scheduled to become free agents after the year, the Bills will get him as much work as he can handle, which will help them evaluate what they’ll do at the position over the winter. Hardy caught 9 passes for 87 yards and 2 touchdowns last year before tearing up his right knee.

Scott’s return could glue Bills’ D back together

  • Posted on November 10, 2009 at 10:56 am

The Buffalo Bills face a curious problem at the safety position right now. Opening day starters Donte Whitner and Bryan Scott have each missed at least four starts this season, and while they’ve been down, rookie Jairus Byrd has established himself as one of the elite young players at his position. Now that Whitner and Scott are close returning to the lineup, the Bills have three legitimate starting safeties, but only two starting spots to occupy.

Luckily for the Bills, Bryan Scott is a multi-faceted weapon. He’s also a team player and a genuinely good guy, which makes removing him from the “starting” lineup all the easier. Byrd is a candidate for Defensive Rookie of the Year and the team’s best defensive playmaker by miles, so he’s not going anywhere. Whitner won’t sit, either, considering his versatility in coverage and the level of play he exhibited prior to his various injuries.

Sabres Prepare For Tough Week

  • Posted on November 10, 2009 at 10:37 am

After starting 8-1-1, the Buffalo Sabres have fallen back to earth, losing three of their last four. Many fans will find this reminiscent of last year’s fall from grace in November that saw the Buffalo club lose 8 of their 13 games that month. This team will need to get back on the wagon real soon if they hope to regain some of their momentum heading into the seemingly tougher month ahead.

This Week’s Opponents:
♦    Wednesday – Home against Edmonton Oilers (8-8-1)
♦    Friday – Home against Calgary Flames (10-4-1)
♦    Saturday – Away against Philadelphia Flyers (9-4-1)

Losses Piling Up for Jonny Flynn

  • Posted on November 10, 2009 at 10:21 am

Jonny Flynn is hardly used to losing.  As the point guard at Niagara Falls high school he lead his team to the New York State public high school championship in 2005.  Last year he helped engineer Syracuse to an improbable Big East title. So you’ll have to forgive him if he’s not used to the bitter taste of defeat on a regular basis.

But that’s exactly what’s happening early on during his NBA rookie season as a member of the Minnesota Timberwolves.   Simply put, the Wolves have been getting beat like a drum.  Since a final second opening night victory against New Jersey,  they’ve dropped their last seven games.  Their last three defeats have come by an average of 25.6 points.

Bulls Look to Close Out Home Schedule with a Win Against Ohio

  • Posted on November 10, 2009 at 9:38 am

The Buffalo Bulls are set to play their second straight nationally televised game on Tuesday against Ohio University at UB Stadium.

The Bulls (3-6, 1-4 MAC) are coming off a heartbreaking 30-29 loss to Bowling Green last Tuesday. Buffalo lead 29-16 going into the fourth quarter, but were unable to hold the lead as the Falcons scored two touchdowns, including the game winner with 39 seconds left in the contest.

“We didn’t execute what we were told to do on the football field,” said head coach Turner Gill. “That cost us to have two blocked punts. Offensively, you have to get some points in the second half. With an explosive offense like they have you cannot settle with not getting points in the second half. And defensively, you’ve got to be able to stop them. We stopped them for a little while but you’ve got to be able to do it the whole game.”
