Bills batter Colts backups in season finale win

  • Posted on January 3, 2010 at 4:50 pm

Granted the game meant absolutely nothing to the Indianapolis Colts.  Five defensive starters didn’t even suit up and Peyton Manning and the rest of the offense made little more than a quarter cameo.  In fact the Colts were clearly more concerned with setting a few personal milestones than winning a football game.

Nonetheless, the Buffalo Bills approached their season finale as if it were the Super Bowl and rolled over the Colts, 30-7 in near blizzard conditions at Ralph Wilson Stadium. It was the first Bills win in a season finale in their last seven tries.

Buffalo outgained the Colts, 403-157 with 72 of Indianapolis’ yards coming on their second drive of the game.

Miller blanks Canadiens 1-0 for fifth shutout

  • Posted on January 3, 2010 at 4:49 pm

The one way to ensure a furious comeback won’t be needed is to not allow the opposition a goal.  The Buffalo Sabres did just that, riding a second period Tim Connolly tally for the duration as Ryan Miller turned aside all 30 Montreal shots in a Sunday afternoon 1-0 victory.

With 13:04 left in the second period Jason Pominville carried the puck down the left side of the ice and fed Connolly in front.  Montreal goaltender Carey Price stopped the first attempt, but Connolly whacked the rebound past him to get a point for the sixth straight games.

The case for Brian Billick

  • Posted on January 3, 2010 at 12:09 am

As you’d suspect at this juncture of the season, rumored Buffalo Bills head coaching candidates are coming out of the woodwork faster than a Tiger Woods mistress.  We reported Friday that San Diego defensive coordinator Ron Rivera would be a candidate.  Michael Cole of Yahoo Sports stated Saturday both Brian Billick and Brian Schottenheimer would be given job interviews by new general manager Buddy Nix.  It’s been widely reported last week that the Bills have already contacted Charlie Weis and he’s interested in the job.

On Saturday evening, Buffalo News senior NFL writer Mark Gaughn added some names he’s hearing to the mix, including a few surprises in Jim Harbaugh, Cam Cameron and Chris Peterson as well as the usual suspects in Jim Haslett and Jim Fassel. Perry Fewell courtesy interview thanks for stopping by is also expected to receive an interview according to Nix.

Red hot Sabres take on Montreal at 3pm

  • Posted on January 3, 2010 at 12:09 am

The Buffalo Sabres skate into Montreal to face their Northeast division rivals Sunday afternoon and if the past two games are any indication, don’t walk away from your television set if the Canadiens grab a 3-0 lead. Buffalo has spotted Pittsburgh and Atlanta three goals in their last two contests before coming back in dramatic fashion to win 4-3 on both occasions.  As a result they’re 6-2-2 in their last 10 and with an Eastern Conference second-best 54 points, are full of confidence.

Head coach Lindy Ruff doesn’t expect the massive comebacks to continue.

“We’re not going to keep coming back from 3-0,” Ruff told reporters after practice Saturday. “We’re right on the cusp of either getting it figured out and going one way, or looking pretty bad.”

Unemployed Chef: The Grand Finale

  • Posted on January 3, 2010 at 12:08 am

So the season is coming to a close for the Bills, but that doesn’t mean you can’t watch the final game over an awesome dinner (or lunch, seeing that the game’s at 1:00).  Since I’m feeling a little sad and nostalgic about this being my last post of the season, I’ve been looking through my old Buffalo Sports Daily posts, as well as my Unemployed Chef blog posts.

For today’s game against the Colts, you deserve a delicious (and easy) homestyle meal.  Yeah, 8 Bills are out for Sunday, and who knows what Colts they’ll pull this time, but YOU will still be watching.  So you deserve to be rewarded.  Just for you, I’ve pulled (and tweaked) the very first recipe I’ve EVER posted on The Unemployed Chef: Breaded Chicken Strips, Oven-roasted Asparagus & Roasted Potatoes with Roasted Red Pepper Purée.  Yeah, it sounds fancy, but I swear it’s not.  I don’t give you fancy.  I give you easy.  I give you cheap.  I give you delicious.  And, most importantly, I give you a chance to revisit the FUGLY 49′¢ green placemats from my early recipes that all you bitches love to hate (don’t think I haven’t read your comments).  Enjoy!

Go Bills! (or Colts if you’re looking to boost your  draft stock)

Losing day for local college hoops

  • Posted on January 3, 2010 at 12:08 am

Saturday afternoon was a dreadful day of local college basketball for Niagara, Canisius and St. Bonaventure.  All three took the court against tough but beatable teams, and all three came away on the losing end of the stick.

Niagara played at the HSBC Arena as part of a MAAC doubleheader against Iona and the Purple Eagles led by as much at 10 points midway through the second half, but couldn’t make baskets down the stretch and eventually lost 63-60.

Senior Bilal Benn had a game-high 21 points to go with nine rebounds, but missed a potential game winning shot in the waning seconds and a pair of Iona free throws with 1.4 seconds left sealed Niagara’s fate.
