Report: Edwards to become Bills’ D.C.

  • Posted on February 4, 2010 at 1:54 pm

Adam Schefter at ESPN is reporting that Buffalo Bills head coach Chan Gailey has tabbed George Edwards as his defensive coordinator.

Roughly a month ago, on January 8, Edwards was named a co-defensive coordinator at the University of Florida after a five-year stint as a linebackers coach with the Miami Dolphins. Less than four weeks later, Edwards will return to the NFL.

Edwards, 43, has coached in the NFL since 1998 with four different teams. Prior to his stay in Miami, Edwards was an assistant defensive coordinator and linebackers coach with Washington before getting promoted to defensive coordinator. He then spent a year as the defensive coordinator in Cleveland before heading to Miami. Edwards got his first NFL job from none other than Chan Gailey, who hired him as his linebackers coach in 1998. Edwards spent four seasons in that post.

Prior to his NFL experience, Edwards was the defensive line coach at the University of Georgia, where he coached current Bills defensive tackle Marcus Stroud. In all, Edwards has 19 years of coaching experience.

Jim Kelly sounds off via chat

  • Posted on February 4, 2010 at 10:46 am

Former Buffalo Bills and current Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly was over at Thursday morning for a live chat.  He took questions from readers and in typical Kelly fashion, was pretty forthright with his opinions.

Here are a few of the highlights.  To view the chat in its entirety, click here.

A reader from New York (Sam) asked what Kelly thought about the Michael Vick to Buffalo rumors and Kelly made it crystal clear he doesn’t want him here.

The Hunter’s Hope Drive

  • Posted on February 4, 2010 at 9:19 am

Last month, funded entirely by the passion—and hearts of Buffalo Bills fans, money was raised in less than four days to erect a billboard on the middle of the Buffalo Thruway calling for Bill Cowher to come to town.  While ultimately Cowher decided against returning to coaching, the message didn’t go unnoticed.

The billboard made headlines on both a regional and national level.  By the time the week was up, media personalities questioned Bills’ fans sanity, but never their passion.

One of the many who took notice was Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly.

“These are Bills fans. They’ll do whatever it takes. It doesn’t matter. God bless ‘em. And I understand the money over what it cost the billboard will go to Hunter’s Hope, so great job guys,” said Kelly to WKWB-TV.

He’s right… And it’s not over either.

Stampede coach Condill resigns

  • Posted on February 4, 2010 at 8:26 am

The Buffalo Stampede announced that  Jim Condill has resigned his duties as the head coach of the team. After the two game road trip that took the Stampede to Rochester and Puerto Rico, Coach Condill was not feeling well. He felt that it would be best for him and the team to return to Chicago.

In his first season as coach he guided the team to a 1-5 record before his resignation. The team was playing great basketball and really starting to come together. The Stampede defeated the Manchester Millrats 114-111 this past Saturday to improve their record to 2-5.

BSD Briefs: February 4

  • Posted on February 4, 2010 at 8:15 am

The Buffalo Sabres better start praying they don’t see Ottawa in the playoff.  The Senators handled them for the fourth straight time this season and ninth time in their last 10 meetings last night, 4-2.  Though it’s been rare this season with the fine job he’s done, how can you not question Lindy Ruff’s thinking when he put the fourth line out in the final minute of a tie game?  That’s “money” time and guys like Vanek, Roy and/or Connolly need to be on the ice.

Perhaps more disturbing was the team doing next-to-nothing sans Tyler Myers after Ryan Miller was run in the second period.  Accident or not, and I don’t think it was, you don’t  stand by and do nothing, especially when the culprit is a heated rival like Ottawa.  Drew Stafford watched the play and other than putting his paw on someone basically froze.  He should be ashamed of himself.

NFL Draft Prospect Profile: Sam Bradford

  • Posted on February 4, 2010 at 7:32 am

Sam Bradford (QB)-Oklahoma

6’4, 223lbs


Bradford has ideal height for an NFL quarterback prospect and has the solid body type he can build on to by adding more weight through strength training. He displays very good mechanics in dropping back quickly while also showing off good footwork and is able to deliver the ball very quickly even in the face of pressure.

Some of the things Bradford does well though many don’t notice is his anticipation of routes and where the receiver will be .He is able to quickly check off receiving options until he finds an open target.
