Bills’ rookie Byrd voted to Pro Bowl

  • Posted on December 29, 2009 at 7:04 pm

Congratulations to Buffalo Bills rookie safety Jairus Byrd, who was elected to the Pro Bowl.

Despite not beginning the season as the starter and being forced to miss a game (and another coming Sunday) with a groin injury, Byrd is tied for the NFL lead with nine interceptions, a honor he shares with Asante Samuel and Darren Sharper.  Beginning in week five against Cleveland Byrd intercepted at least one pass in five games and had eight during that span.

UB finds themselves an OL coach

  • Posted on December 29, 2009 at 3:08 pm

(Editors Note: Hats off to blogger Tim Riordan, who’s been on top of everything UB football the past several weeks)

When I discussed Greg Forest yesterday I had expressed that my only concern was his lack of experience coaching an offensive line (and it was a slight concern at that). Today FootBallScoop is reporting that Quinn has selected his Offensive Line coach in the person of Adam Shorter.

Shorter was a four-year letterman and starting center for the Cincinnati Bearcats. the the John Pease Award recipient appeared in three of Cincinnati’s four bowl appearances during his tenure.

Sabres fans on DIRECTV could soon get the boot

  • Posted on December 29, 2009 at 12:14 pm

Buffalo Sports fans with DIRECTV have already felt the frustration of not being able to watch Sabres games when they play on Versus.  But if you think that’s a burden, you may want to prepare your cable company to “make that switch.”  If the report at is accurate, DIRECTV could be losing the MSG Network, which carries the majority of Buffalo Sabres games.

According to the site, DIRECTV could lose AMC, IFC, MSG, the Sundance Channel and other Rainbow Media-owned channels as early as this Friday, according to Multichannel News.

This would leave DIRECTV subscribing Buffalo Sabres fans who watch the games shit out of luck S.O.L.

2010 Top 10 Bills Draft Prospects

  • Posted on December 29, 2009 at 11:43 am

Yes, I’m well aware that it is only December 29. Many college bowl games have not yet taken place, top-flight underclassmen still have more than two weeks to declare themselves eligible for the 2010 NFL Draft, and the NFL season has not yet come to a close, even for bad teams like the Buffalo Bills.

Right now, however, the Buffalo Bills simply are not interesting. I suspect that as soon as the team wraps up its 2009 schedule, win or lose, against Indianapolis this coming Sunday, the interest levels will rise. But as we’re between holidays at the moment - typically happy times for all involved - I thought I’d spare you (and myself) the horror of talking about the professional football team we cover, at least for a few hours.

UB Football 2010 Two-Deep (Defense)

  • Posted on December 29, 2009 at 11:27 am

Jeff Quinn Buffalo Sports DailyOne of the things I find far more exciting about College football than the NFL is the turnover. Not the delicious breakfast pastry and I don’t mean the pics and fumbles that killed UB this season. I am referring, of course, to the fact that with very rare exceptions a university only gets four years out of their players. Of course this hurts mid majors more than the AQ schools but like death, graduation comes for all.

After changing coaches the question of how and differing philosophies may impact the programs direction or approach it takes to recruiting is bound to come up. UB’s defense in 2009 could be described as being, in theory, a bend but don’t break defense. It’s hard to judge just how successful the Bulls were, the defense was stuck with so many short fields that before they had a chance to break opponents were in the red zone.
