Shanahan, Bills have “excellent meeting”

  • Posted on November 25, 2009 at 1:14 pm

It’s been the topic of conversation for roughly a week in Buffalo Bills country, and now, we have the first details of the event itself. Bills COO Russ Brandon met for seven hours with former Denver head coach Mike Shanahan late Monday into early Tuesday, and according to the source of the ESPN report detailing the event, the meeting went well. The report describes Brandon’s presentation to Shanahan as “persuasive.”

Shanahan was quoted in the report. “We had an excellent meeting,” Shanahan said Wednesday. “I was really impressed with Russ Brandon and everything he had to say. We’re going to stay in touch and see what develops.”

106th Harvard Cup Preview: Burgard vs Riverside

  • Posted on November 25, 2009 at 12:55 pm

With rumors abounding that Thursday morning’s 106th edition of the Harvard Cup Championship Game may be the last, two of the best football teams representing City football in recent years will square off at historic All High Stadium for the Harvard Cup’s traditional Thanksgiving title match.

The first place Burgard Bulldogs (8-1) face the second place and defending champion Riverside Frontiers (8-1) in what could be one of the greatest contests in the great history of this league.  If one had to wait 106 years to crown a championship, this game might just well be worthy of such a billing.

Want your QB in 2010? Then root for this

  • Posted on November 25, 2009 at 12:22 pm

As the 2009 NFL season slides into the homestretch, it’s become glaringly apparent to anyone who watches that the quarterback of the future is not on the Bills roster.  Yes, just yesterday I wrote the Bills should start Brian Brohm near the end of the season, but it’s not likely to happen.  Why not?  Because Perry Fewell and Alex Van Pelt are coaching for their jobs.  They’re not worried about the future because they may not have one here.  They’ll go with the quarterback that gives them the best chance to win each week, and that guy looks like Ryan Fitzpatrick for now. The last thing Fewell is thinking about is 2010 and beyond.

But for the sake of moving on, let’s assume that Brohm does get some playing time and it’s concluded he’s not the future. That’s not far fetched, seeing he couldn’t get past Green Bay’s practice squad.

There’s barely adequate backups available in free agency let alone legitimate starters.  Sure, there’s always the trade possibility, but it wouldn’t be wise to entrust the turnaround of the Bills in the hands of a Michael Vick or Derek Anderson.

What Sabres will Participate in the Olympics?

  • Posted on November 25, 2009 at 10:27 am

The Winter Olympics are quickly approaching and many of the greatest hockey players in the world will step on the ice to represent their country. There are many Sabres players that are hoping to be part of the elite group that will take part in the games.

Here is my attempt at sounding semi-intelligent regarding the talent level of the Sabres squad. We’re not even going to mention Thomas Vanek because he’s too obvious.

Pack Your Bags

Pack your bags, book your flight, reserve your room…these are the players that are a lock to represent their country in the Olympics.
