Source: Bills have not contacted Pendergast

  • Posted on January 28, 2010 at 7:51 pm

Upon learning of Clancy Pendergast’s departure from the Kansas City Chiefs earlier, it was easy to connect the dots and assume he’d be on his way to join Chan Gailey as the Buffalo Bills defensive coordinator.

Well, not so fast.

I just learned minutes ago that as of this evening the organization has not contacted Pendergast about joining their staff. While that doesn’t automatically disqualify him from eventually being the choice, it makes it highly unlikely to happen.

I’ve been told since Monday that the Bills already “have something in the works for a defensive coordinator”.  If that’s holds true, then it’s definitely not Pendergast.

This would contradict many rumors and speculation that Pendergast would be joining Gailey and put in charge of the defense.

Who exactly is their choice? Your guess at this time is as good as mine.  I’ve been told it’s going to be a guy who will run a 3-4 defense. “Well, I got this much, Patrick: They’re going to a 3-4.” he said Monday.

Wilson’s words prove to be empty

Ralph Wilson Buffalo Sports DailyMark Gaughan of the Buffalo News is in Mobile, Alabama this week covering the Senior Bowl.  Buddy Nix as expected is down south scouting the talent.  Gaughan spoke with Nix yesterday for a piece that revolved around his scouting history, but inside the article a pair of underlying revelations came to surface.

First, it seems very likely Tom Modrak is going nowhere. Gaughan wrote that Modrak has sat next to Nix at every practice and while Nix wouldn’t comment on his status directly, he told Gaughan “There’s just nothing to say. We’re going on like we were.”

While many people debate the level of Modrak’s responsibility on the plethora of poor early round draft picks over the past decade, no one can dispute he’s been here through both the Tom Donahoe and Marv Levy eras and to some degree has had his fingerprints, at the very least on most of the selections.

NFL Draft Prospect Profile: Gerald McCoy

Gerald McCoy

6’4”, 294 lbs

(#2 Prospect,#2 Defensive Prospect,#2 Defensive Tackle

McCoy has great size for the three technique position and demonstrates a great frame where he can really extend his arms with a lot of power and get into the offensive lineman first, thus controlling the battle.

McCoy is probably the most athletic defensive tackle in this class, possessing an amazingly quick first step that allows him to knife the gap and use his power to blow through and make a play in the backfield.

Jonny Flynn selected to play in All-Star weekend

  • Posted on January 28, 2010 at 9:40 am

He may be having a miserable season in terms of team wins and losses, but former Niagara Falls high school star Jonny Flynn will get an opportunity to showcase his skills for the entire world to see.

The NBA’s third leading rookie scorer has been selected to all-star weekend to participate in the annual rookies vs. sophomores challenge.  The game takes place in Dallas, Texas as part of All-Star weekend on February 12.

Flynn is averaging 14.1 points, 4.1 assists and 2.4 rebounds through 47 games this season.  Flynn was held to 10 points and three assists in 21 minutes last night as his Minnesota Timberwolves lost to the Lebron James-led Cleveland Cavaliers.

Miller keys Sabres win over New Jersey

  • Posted on January 28, 2010 at 8:23 am

Ryan Miller was spectacular Wednesday night as the Buffalo Sabres returned home for the first time in two weeks, making 35 saves to lead a tired Sabres squad to a 2-1 shootout victory over the New Jersey Devils.

Jochen Hecht and Jason Pominville both beat Devils netminder in the shootout while Miller turned away Zack Parise and Jamie Langenbrunner to seal the much-needed two points.

Adam Mair scored the regulation goal for Buffalo, who saw Toni Lydman, Steve Montador and Clarke MacArthur get scratched by head coach Lindy Ruff.  Nathan Paetsch and Andrei Sekera were inserted into the lineup.

Tim Connolly was held pointless, ending a 16-game point scoring streak, the second longest in team history.

Buffalo is 8-0-3 in their last 11 home games and pulled within one point of the Devils for second place in the Eastern Conference.
