Kaleta, Tallinder both on ice at practice for Sabres

  • Posted on March 25, 2010 at 1:40 pm

Buffalo SabresGood news for the Buffalo Sabres on the injury front.  Patrick Kaleta and Henrik Tallinder were both injured during the Sabres wild comeback win over Montreal last night.  Kaleta left for good late in the second period after being hit in the neck.  Tallinder left with seven minutes remaining after suffering from dizziness, a result of his head hitting the ice.

It doesn’t look either will miss time.  Both were back on the ice at practice today for the Sabres in Amherst.

Head coach Lindy Ruff said after practice that Tallinder is feeling better and doesn’t think it will be an issue going forward.

Five Reasons The Bills WILL Draft Jimmy Clausen

  • Posted on March 25, 2010 at 1:12 pm

Jimmy ClausenNot long ago, Buffalo Sports Daily contributing blogger Joe Pinzone listed five reasons why the Buffalo Bills would not draft Jimmy Clausen.  In his best effort to play both sides of the fence and cover all his tracks, Pinzone comes back with this column defining five reasons why we draft him.

Enjoy… Unless you hate Jimmy Clausen.

5) A New Hope (Insert Star Wars Theme)
A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…the Buffalo Bills selected Jim Kelly in the first round of the 1983 NFL Draft. After a detour in the USFL, Kelly arrived in Buffalo with a ton of fan fair and was viewed as the savior for the franchise. All Ralph Wilson had to do was look at the crowd during the home opener against the Jets. It marked the first time in three years that the Bills were able to sell out Rich Stadium (Now Ralph Wilson stadium). Wilson and the Bills fans knew they had something special.

Nothing will be made official until the summer.

What’s your opinion of the jersey?

An Examination of Bills Second Rounders

  • Posted on March 25, 2010 at 12:38 pm

Donovan McNabb BuffaloNow that it’s common knowledge the Philadelphia Eagles are at least entertaining trade offers for Donovan McNabb, it’s only logical for the Buffalo Bills to be linked to rumors.  The Bills are one of the few teams in the league with a completely unsettled quarterback situation, so much that as of now Chan Gailey claims there will be an open competition come training camp.

It’s being reported the Eagles could part with McNabb for a second round pick.  It’s also been reported that the St. Louis Rams have already offered their second round pick (33rd overall) to the Eagles, though both sides have denied such an offer.

Buffalo owns the ninth pick of the second round, the 41st overall.

R.I.P. Wayne Patrick

  • Posted on March 25, 2010 at 10:34 am

Older Buffalo Bills fans will remember fullback Wayne Patrick.  Unfortunately, Patrick passed away Wednesday after a long illness at 64 years old.

Signed by the Bills in 1968 after being cut by the Cincinnati Bengals as a 10th round draft pick out of Louisville, Patrick played for the Bills for five seasons.  During that time he ran for 1,084 yards and scored five touchdowns. He also caught 96 passes out of the backfield.

He was best known as a hard-nose blocking fullback for O.J. Simpson during his first few seasons in the league.

Our condolences go out to his family and friends.
