UB to host their “Pro Day” on Wednesday

  • Posted on March 1, 2010 at 4:01 pm

Naaman RooseveltThis Wednesday Buffalo will hold its “Pro Day”. UB, along with FIU and Lindenwood are the first schools to go. So far I have been told the following Bulls will be participating:

Naaman Roosevelt: It’s heresy against the football gods that Naaman did not get an invite to the NFL combine (and thats not just the fan in me talking, I’ve had several other bloggers tell me the same thing). What he did at Buffalo was completely rewrite the school’s record books and made the All Conference team three times. He was *the* focus of defenses all year in 2009 and he still managed nearly one thousand yards in just ten games.

Are the Bills interested in Charlie Whitehurst?

  • Posted on March 1, 2010 at 1:49 pm

Lost among the NFL scouting combine and the United States near-run to a gold medal in the Olympics headlines over the weekend was a little blurb in a Buffalo Bills team report published by the USA Today. According to the report, the Bills are “researching” San Diego Chargers restricted free agent quarterback Charlie Whitehurst.

The report read

“Speaking of San Diego, the Bills are believed to be researching backup quarterback Charlie Whitehurst as a potential restricted free-agent signing (four-year player under no-cap rule). Whitehurst, who played at Clemson, was a third-round pick in 2006 and has been grooming for an opportunity to start, something that won’t materialize in San Diego with Phillip Rivers entrenched. It’s believed Whitehurst will be tendered at $1.176 million or 110 percent of his 2009 paragraph five salary, giving San Diego right of first refusal and a third-round pick if he signs elsewhere.”

Benn and Lewis both landed on the All-MAAC Second Team.

Five things the Bills will do this offseason

  • Posted on March 1, 2010 at 1:05 pm

Buddy NixThe offseason fun for the Buffalo Bills and the rest of the NFL soon gets underway.  The annual free agent shopping spree commences at the stroke of midnight Friday and obviously the NFL draft is less than two months away.  The Bills will be looking to find as many pieces as they can to improve their team and speculation bounds daily on how they’ll go about doing it.

They need at least one if not a pair of offensive tackles. Finding a nose guard and at least one defensive end is a priority for the defense as well as various depth upgrades.  A quarterback is more than just a miniscule possibility and with news coming out that Terrell Owens and Josh Reed definitely won’t be back, the team suddenly needs help at wide receiver.

Congratulations to some of the best high school hockey teams in Western New York, who won their respective division finals at “Super Sunday” at the HSBC Arena on Sunday.

Playing Bills GM- Volume V (Part 1)

  • Posted on March 1, 2010 at 12:15 am

(Admitted hot head fan/blogger Joe Pinzone AKA “JoeFromNYC” has a blueprint to solve the Buffalo Bills woes.  Many won’t agree with his views–and we probably won’t either.  But they’re still interesting enough to publish.  This is the fifth in a series of moves he would like to see the Bills make to return to respectability)

Free agency is upon us, and it couldn’t be more of a different class than in years past. Without a new CBA signed, nearly 200 would be free agents are now restricted. You also have rumors that teams are not going to spend as much as in years past because of the impending work stoppage in 2011.
