Bills need to re-discover the tight end

  • Posted on January 15, 2010 at 8:58 am

You don’t need me to tell you that the 2009 version of the Buffalo Bills could hardly be labeled a juggernaut offensively. In finishing 6-10, the Bills scored just 258 points on the season, an average of around 16 per game. That’s not going to win you a lot of ball games. Only five NFL teams scored fewer points than Buffalo last season - Cleveland, Oakland, Detroit, Tampa Bay and St. Louis - and those teams finished a combined 16-64.

It’s not rocket science. You have to score points to win football games, and the Bills haven’t scored enough points for a full decade.

We know what Buffalo’s biggest issues are offensively. The team has lacked a franchise quarterback since Jim Kelly retired, and the offensive line has been ravaged by injuries, youth and an overall lack of top-end talent. Clearly, the offense isn’t going to make major strides until the Bills can muster passing grades in both areas. One often-overlooked area where the Bills have lacked for quite some time, however, is the tight end position. Buffalo still has yet to hire a head coach; when that happens, however, it is imperative that the new coach find a coordinator that is capable of getting the ball to the tight end.

Smiley’s three lifts UB to win at Bowling Green

  • Posted on January 15, 2010 at 8:49 am

Senior Sean Smiley drained his fourth three pointer of the game with 4.7 seconds left to break a 65-65 tie and lead the Bulls to a win at Bowling Green, 68-65. The win for the Bulls was just their second all-time at Anderson Arena and improves their record to 9-4 on the season and 2-0 in the MAC.

The Falcons were able to erase a nine-point halftime deficit as they got within two early in the half and finally tied it on two Dee Brown free throws with 39 seconds left. From there the Bulls found a wide-open Smiley who drained a three from long range to put the Bulls up three with 4.7 seconds left. The Falcons threw up one last desperation three-point attempt, but it came up short as the Bulls were able to hold on for the win.
