Jets Stick Fork in Bills 19-13

  • Posted on December 3, 2009 at 11:47 pm

Well, that wasn’t pretty.

The Bills offense had their chances throughout the second half but could do nothing with it.  Ryan Fitzpatrick was harassed into three sacks and spent most the game running for his life. With the Bills in possession of the ball and a six point deficit late in the fourth quarter, he heaved a pass downfield intended for Terrell Owens. It was picked off by Darrelle Revis, sealing a 19-13 Jets win in Toronto that had more a feel of a CFL game than a prime time divisional NFL contest.

The Bills briefly led in the first half, 10-6 after a 15-yard Marshawn Lynch touchdown run.  But the Jets pulled within one on Jay Feely’s third field goal of the game and took the lead for good with 2:58 in the first half  on a 13 yard Mark Sanchez to Braylon Edwards touchdown pass.

Bulls Earn Landmark Win Over Army

  • Posted on December 3, 2009 at 11:44 pm

The University at Buffalo men’s basketball team beat Army, 74-67, at Alumni Arena on Thursday night for the 1,000th win in program history. The Bulls hit a season-best 10 three-pointers to foil an Army zone defense and snap the Black Knights’ five-game winning streak.

The Bulls’ long-range barrage was led by Sean Smiley who nailed four three-pointers en route to scoring a season-high 14 points. Zach Filzen had three three-pointers and John Boyer added a pair.

Buffalo (3-2) made eight of its three-pointers in the first half to help build its lead to as many as 15 points before settling for a 40-30 advantage at the break.

Adding Fewell to the Fire

  • Posted on December 3, 2009 at 3:49 pm

Getting a team motivated to play a football game is no easy task in the NFL. Dan Birdwell, a defensive lineman who played for the AFL Oakland Raiders once said “You have to play this game like somebody just hit your mother with a two-by-four.

For some reason, football players seem to love their mothers more than their fathers; and how do I know this?  Have you ever seen a player on the sideline after a touchdown, or interception saying “I love you dad” or “that one’s for you pops”.  No, it’s always about mom. I’m not sure why we don’t give our fathers more credit. After all, they’re usually the parent that buys us our first football, signs us up for pee wee football and motivates us to be the best we can be. Nonetheless, mom still gets all the props. It must have something to do with women being the weaker (physically speaking) of the sexes and wanting us feeling the need to protect them.

Flynn, Wolves come up short in bid for second straight win

  • Posted on December 3, 2009 at 3:34 pm

Last night’s Minnesota Timberwolves game started strong. Wolves fans, at the Target Center last night for the game against the Memphis Grizzlies, hoped  rookie Jonny Flynn and Al Jefferson were going to bring them a second straight at win following 15 losses.. With an 8 point lead at the half, things were looking that way.

But Flynn and his teammates came out in the second half tired and sloppy. Meanwhile the Grizzles did the opposite. For the game over 29 minutes, Flynn posted a meager 12 points with 2 rebounds. He did however finally have a great night for assists, posting a career-high 9, but it wasn’t enough to lead his team to a win.

Flynn missed crucial back to back shots in the final minute of the game that would have made the final  97-95 deficit look quite a bit different.

The Unemployed Chef: Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

  • Posted on December 3, 2009 at 3:21 pm

They say that chicken soup is good for the soul. I’m sure that’s a load of crap, but since I’m admittedly a Jets fan, my soul needs healing after you guys kicked our ass in Week 6. Plus, it’s starting to get cold (I can only imagine how you Buffalo-ians must feel), and freezing your ‘nads off in front of a grill is unnecessary. I mean, the grill can only warm them up so much, right?

This Thursday night, I’ll be downing a ‘liquid’ dinner while watching the Bills take on the Jets in Toronto. Much to your disappointment, this liquid dinner is not pertaining to alcohol. That’s right. My Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup is that good. You’ll feel intoxicated by its deliciousness.

Do Or Die For Bills & Jets In Toronto

  • Posted on December 3, 2009 at 3:19 pm

The Buffalo Bills and New York Jets clash tonight in what amounts to a do-or-die AFC East battle for both teams.  The game is being played in Toronto and if last year’s event is any indication, the Bills represent the “home” team  in what essentially amounts to a neutral site.

Instead of the traditional “Are you ready for some football?” question, for our Canadian fiends lets queue  the “THAT’S WHAT I’M TALKIN’ ABOOOOOT!!!!!”

Neither team has a winning record.  The Jets enter at 5-6 while Buffalo is 4-7.  Shockingly this is still a big game.  If the Bills can win their third straight divisional contest, they’re actually very much alive in the divisional race, especially if Miami wins at home against New England Sunday.  If both happen, the Bills would be within a game of Miami and two of New England, and they play the Patriots at home in three weeks on December 20.

Hardy a likely scratch, Parrish to return punts

  • Posted on December 3, 2009 at 10:47 am

I’ve learned that with the possible exception Terrence McGee (knee) and Jairus Byrd (groin), who will be a game time decisions, the Buffalo Bills inactive list for tonight’s game in Toronto against the Jets will look exactly like last week. I’ve also been told Roscoe Parrish will again be returning punts.

I just spoke to someone in Toronto covering the team and was told Perry Fewell is “heavily leaning” towards the same inactive list as last week.  Against Miami the Bills inactives were: Steve Johnson, McGee, Ashton Youboty, Demetrius Bell, James Hardy, Chris Ellis, John McCargo. Brian Brohm was the third QB.

If McGee can go, and the team is hopeful he will, then Cary Harris would be deactivated.  Byrd is also questionable and on a short week with little recovery time, the team may be careful with him.  But my source expects him to be in uniform and not starting.  He may used as a backup and/or emergency situation the same as Donte Whitner was when he came back from his ankle injury.

Enroth stands tall in shutout for Portland

  • Posted on December 3, 2009 at 9:39 am

The Portland Pirates returned the favor to the Manchester Monarchs as Jhonas Enroth made 39 saves for his first shutout of the season en route to a 2-0 victory before 3,013 at the Verizon Wireless Arena on Wednesday night.

The last time these two teams played, Monarchs’ goalie Jonathan Bernier made 29 saves in a 4-0 win back on Oct. 17.

It was only the second time this season the Monarchs lost a game in regulation at home — last time being against the Hershey Bears, a 4-1 loss on Nov. 7.
