T.O’s return won’t be forced by Buffalo

  • Posted on January 29, 2010 at 12:28 pm

The chances of Terrell Owens returning to the Buffalo Bills in 2010 are slim.  The aging receiver had one of the worst years of his career in terms of production and though he behaved nobly during his one-year tenure, it’s not exactly government science that he’s expected to sign elsewhere come March.

By league rule there’s always the option of placing the franchise or transition tag on him, making it a near-lock he’d be back in the Bills’ fold.  But we’re going to go on a limb and predict that’s not happening.

Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star-Ledger published Friday the price tags that will accompany franchise and transition players.  Owens would cost Buffalo $9.521 million if franchised or $8.651 million to transition.

Neither is happening.

Bills Roster Review: Tight Ends

  • Posted on January 29, 2010 at 10:28 am

Shawn Nelson Buffalo Sports DailyAbout two weeks back, I penned a piece in this space imploring Buffalo to re-discover the tight end position in its offense. That article was written shortly before Gailey was introduced as Buffalo’s head coach; needless to say, the fact that the Bills hired an offensive-minded head coach who professes to build schemes around the talents of his players brings a little optimism to the outlook of this position in Buffalo. That is, if Gailey can live up to his word. Oh, and find a quarterback. And an offensive line.

Buffalo does have some talent at this position, although what the new coaching staff expects in general out of the position could severely impact how it’s addressed this off-season. Regardless, things are looking up for one or two of Buffalo’s young tight ends, in particular a player entering his second season.

BSD Briefs: January 29

  • Posted on January 29, 2010 at 8:30 am

So after a CIA-style top secret approach to a head coach, it seems the Buffalo Bills are it again in finding a defensive coordinator.  The organization has remained extremely secretive in its search, leaving fans and media alike in the dark with their procedure.

I’ve heard so many different things over the past week it’s hard to believe anything anymore.  Last week I heard that Bill Bates remained their top choice.  Then Monday I was told that “something was in the works for a D.C.”.  Later Monday the same person told me the team plans to switch to a 3-4.  Then Clancy Pendergast is let go by the Chiefs Thursday paving the way to come to Buffalo.  Finally much to my astonishment, I was told that as of last night the Bills never contacted Pendergast about the job.

UB drops third straight, 75-69 to Ball State

  • Posted on January 29, 2010 at 7:43 am

The University at Buffalo men’s basketball team dropped its third straight game with a 75-69 loss to Ball State at Alumni Arena on Thursday night. Buffalo ran into a red-hot shooting Cardinal team that shot 55 percent from the field, including 9-for-11 from beyond the arc.

It was a game that left UB fans scratching their heads. The Bulls forced a season-high 25 turnovers and committed only six - their lowest total in six seasons. In addition, Buffalo took 79 shots, the most by a UB team since the 2002-03 season and 39 more than the Cardinals. But it was Ball State who took advantage of their chances, converting 22 of their 40 field goal attempts.
