Welcome Back Gibran Hamden

  • Posted on December 22, 2009 at 5:48 pm

The Buffalo Bills have officially placed Terrence McGee on injured reserve and to fill his roster spot have brought back quarter Gibran Hamden.

The move is surely a precursor to placing Trent Edwards on injured reserve.

Hamden, who’s biggest claim to fame in Buffalo was hosting his video show “Hanging with Hamden” was with the Bills organization from 2006 until being released on November 19 to make room for Brian Brohm.

During his six-year career he’s thrown all of two NFL passes, completing one for seven yards.

Edwards suffered a high ankle sprain against New England on Sunday that will end his season. McGee is schedule to have surgery tomorrow on his shoulder.

Quinn Brings Confidence As New UB Football Coach

  • Posted on December 22, 2009 at 4:08 pm

It’s never painless to replace a successful football coach, yet the University of Buffalo were required to do so after Turner Gill moved on to Kansas.  Fortunately for UB fans, the school got a proven winner in former Cincinnati Bearcats offensive coordinator Jeff Quinn.

Quinn was introduced as the 24th University of Buffalo head football coach on Tuesday. In doing so, he turned the chance to become offensive coordinator at Notre Dame.

UB Athletic Director Warde Manuel revealed that he interviewed six candidates over a two-day period, after reviewing resumes of 150 to 200 people. He interviewed Quinn last Friday morning and before the two had dinner Friday evening, Quinn had agreed to become the head coach.

Sabres Rake Leafs In Overtime

  • Posted on December 22, 2009 at 11:16 am

Eight games.  That’s the number of times the Sabres have consecutively bested the Toronto Maple Leafs going into Monday night’s contest.  Derek Roy’s backhand goal 3:55  into overtime extended that streak to nine.

With the puck along the boards, Steve Montador’s pinch sent the puck over to Jochen Hecht, who set up a wide-open Roy directly in front of Toronto goaltender Jonas Gustavsson, capping off another game where the Sabres were able to eke out a win against the Maple Leafs when not playing to their strengths.

The Leafs out-shot the Sabres 36-30, won 15 more face-offs and recorded 10 more hits, but could only solve Ryan Miller twice.  Miller, as he has been all season was the key to victory for the Sabres, and his 34 saves stymied the Leafs, especially sniper Phil Kessel, who failed to connect on any of his five shots and has yet to record a point in three games against the Sabres.

NU, Bona to square off for 150th time

  • Posted on December 22, 2009 at 8:00 am

Niagara welcomes one of its oldest rivals to the ‘Taps’ Gallagher Center when it takes on St. Bonaventure on Tuesday in a pre-Christmas showdown. The Purple Eagles showed its ‘claus’ in last year’s victory at St. Bonaventure, winning their sixth-straight in the rivalry, 83-65, on Dec. 23.

Tuesday’s contest marks the 150th time the two schools separated by 98 miles have squared off on the hardwood. The most historic game between the rivals game 48 years ago, when NU ended second-ranked Bona’s 99-game home win streak, 87-77.

Sources: McGee to IR, Edwards and Scott Could Follow

Trent Edwards buffalo sports dailyAt the very least, Brian Brohm will take one step up the Buffalo Bills quarterback ladder this week.

According to more than one source, Trent Edwards has suffered a significant high ankle sprain that will force him to miss the rest of the season. He suffered the injury while being sacked in the fourth quarter against New England on Sunday.

The injury moves Brohm to number two on the depth chart.  We won’t know until later in the week if he’ll be starting when Buffalo travels to Atlanta on Sunday.  That will depend on the health of Ryan Fitpatrick, who’s also suffering from an ankle injury, although it’s not believed to be as severe as Edwards’.

Also, staring cornerback Terrence McGee will be forced to have surgery this week on the shoulder he injured Sunday and will be placed on injured reserve.

It’s already been reported Bryan Scott suffered a concussion last Sunday, making it highly doubtful he’ll play again this year.

If all three players go on injured reserve it would bring the total number of Bills on the list up to 19.
