Doesn’t sound like Gailey wants Tebow early

  • Posted on March 23, 2010 at 3:28 pm

Tim TebowAFC East ESPN blogger Tim Graham has been a machine over the past 24 hours, turning out Buffalo Bills news and information left and right.  Stationed in Orlando for the NFL Owners meetings, Graham has had chances to speak to both Buddy Nix and Chan Gailey.

This afternoon Graham spoke to Gailey and filed a report on Gailey’s comments on quarterback Tim Tebow.

While people always decipher statements differently, after reading I came away feeling  Gailey doesn’t seem fascinated in selecting Tebow anytime early in the draft.

Gailey told Graham he thinks Tebow has all the intangibles but has concern about his mechanics.

Alex RodriquezAccording to a report by the New York Times, New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriquez will be in Buffalo on Friday.  Unfortunately for A-Rod fans the visit won’t be for baseball purposes.  The slugger is scheduled to meet with Federal investigators about his interactions with Anthony Galea, a Canadian doctor who’s suspected of several wrong doings in regards to steroids.

Reportedly, Federal investigators are trying to find out whether Galea gave performance-enhancing drugs to professional athletes in the United States.  Galea has treated prominent American athletes in the past, including Rodriquez and Tiger Woods among U.S. Olympic medalists.

Mitchell reaches 2,000 points, but Bona bows from WNIT

  • Posted on March 23, 2010 at 9:11 am

Dana MitchellDana Mitchell paced all Bonnies with 16 points en route to becoming the second player in program history to reach 2,000 points for her career, but it wasn’t enough to prevent St. Bonaventure from losing to Northwestern, 66-62 in the second round of the women’s NIT on Monday night.

The Bonnies struggled from the charity stripe, hitting just 65 percent on 11-of-17, well below their 80 percent season average.  Northwestern was perfect at the line until the last 18 seconds of the game finishing 15-of-17.

The Bonnies finish with their second straight 23-win season, amassing a 23-10 record for the fewest losses in program history.  Northwestern improves to 18-14 on the season and advances to play Michigan in the third round.

The game ends the career for Mitchell and her classmates Andrea Doneth and Tiara Johnson, who compiled an 80-48 record through four years.

Report: Miami not on list of potential Owens suitors

Terrell OwensFormer Buffalo Bills/current NFL free agent Terrell Owens will eventually find a new team to play for.  It’s just that nobody is sure where it will be and when it will happen.

Since being told by Buddy Nix a week before free agency the Bills wouldn’t be offering him a contract to return, Owens has only visited one team.  That was the Bengals and they decided to sign Antonio Bryant instead, despite ballroom dancing guru Chad OchoCinco’s public pleas for his BFF Owens.

Owens’ agent Drew Rosenhaus said yesterday that at least three teams were interested in his service.  Apparently the Miami Dolphins aren’t one of them.

Graham: Culpepper interested in Bills

  • Posted on March 23, 2010 at 8:34 am

Daunte CulpepperOur friend Tim Graham from is in Orlando, Florida this week to cover the NFL Owners meetings.  From there Graham is reporting that quarterback Daunte Culpepper is interested in the Bills and according to Graham’s report, Buffalo was the only team he mentioned specifically by name.

“I would love to talk to Buffalo,” Culpepper told Graham. “I don’t know if they’d have an open mind, but I’d love to talk to them. I would love to have a chance to compete there. Give me the opportunity. I can be the guy.”

As Brian Galliford from Buffalo Rumblings astutely points out, “If Buffalo didn’t have incentive to find a franchise quarterback before this morning - and you’d think that a decade without playoff football would be incentive enough - Culpepper’s interest should be the straw that broke the camel’s back.”

Senator is pleased the Pirates are sticking around

Portland PiratesWhile the country has been in debate over health care reform, Maine Senator Olympia Snowe took time out to release a statement on the Portland Pirates staying in Portland for the next two years.

“The Portland Pirates serve as a critical cornerstone for a growing number of professional sports organizations and I could not be more pleased to learn that the Portland Pirates will remain in our great state of Maine,” said Senator Snowe in a statement. “There is no question Maine boasts some of the most passionate hockey fans in America. Their enthusiastic support of the Pirates is evidenced by Portland’s ability to support an American League Hockey team since the Maine Mariners arrived in 1977. The Pirates have long served as an integral part of both the City of Portland and the State of Maine’s cultural fabric, and I look forward to having them stay with us for another two years.”
