Report: Raiders emerge as frontrunner for McNabb

  • Posted on March 29, 2010 at 5:37 pm

McNabbESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter is reporting late this afternoon that the Oakland Raiders have emerged as the front runner to land Donovan McNabb in a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles.

“Oakland has emerged as leader in Donovan McNabb sweepstakes,” Schefter said via his twitter. “Doesn’t mean another team couldn’t get deal done, but Raiders are team to beat.”

While the Buffalo Bills have been reported to be among the teams interested in trading for the 33-year old, the odds of getting a deal done have never been high.

Senators Have Sabres Fans Overreacting

  • Posted on March 29, 2010 at 3:59 pm

Paul Gaustad fightThe playoffs are fast approaching, and Sabres Nation is frustrated because their team has lost every single game to its hated rival all season.

The thought of facing them in the postseason evokes the same feelings as when trying to walk past the school bully without giving up their lunch money.   Bad memories still linger of the most recent playoff matchup that saw the Sabres on the short end of a five game series.

Get the picture, Buffalo?  As I’m sure you’ve figured out by now, I’m referring to the 2000-01 Sabres and their struggles against the Philadelphia Flyers.

Tebow in Buffalo as Kelly continues to show support

  • Posted on March 29, 2010 at 3:47 pm

Tim TebowThe Tim Tebow to Buffalo possibility has grown to the next level.

The former Heisman Trophy winner was in Buffalo Sunday for a visit, one which continues into today.  Although Tebow is just one of several quarterback prospects the Bills have either visited with, talked to or saw work out, Tebow comes with the endorsement of the greatest quarterback the franchise has ever known.

Jim Kelly has made his desire for the Bills to draft Tebow no secret. He’s said repeatedly he thinks Tebow can be the leader to turn around an ailing franchise that’s went a decade without a playoff game, with the position he vacated being the primary reason.

He showed his fondness for Tebow Sunday evening as the Hall of Famer and future NFL quarterback were spotted together by several fans at the Buffalo Chop House restaurant in downtown Buffalo.

We’re assuming Jimbo picked up the tab.

Sabres take on Bruins tonight in Boston

  • Posted on March 29, 2010 at 7:55 am

Buffalo SabresWhether they admit it or not, the Buffalo Sabres are hoping for at least two things to happen over the last few weeks of the regular season.  One is obvious—winning the Northeast Division.

They are well on their way.  With a five point lead and two games in hand over Ottawa, a .500 record over their last eight games should get it done.

The other thing they clearly don’t want to see is Ottawa finish sixth in the Eastern Conference. It’s not exactly a secret around the league that the Senators own the Sabres.  The good news is if Buffalo holds onto the division and locks up a third seed they’ll probably avoid Ottawa in the first round.  The Sens are currently in fifth place in the conference by five points over Montreal, with each team having just six games left. If the Sabres win the Northeast then Ottawa would have to finish sixth to make a first round matchup happen.

Nichols cap historic run with Federation championship

  • Posted on March 29, 2010 at 7:00 am

Nichols champsSince the start of Buffalo Sports Daily last September, one of the things I’ve enjoyed the most over the first six months is covering high school basketball and Nichols in particular.  As a diehard hoops fan residing in a city without a professional franchise and only borderline mid-major colleges, the high school scene gives me the hoops fix I often crave.

I got the chance to cover a lot of Nichols games this year and they’ve been a team that’s fascinated me. I’ve seen a lot of good teams over the years but there was something about this Vikings team that stood out.  They seemed to be a complete team; strong play up front (Will Regan, Connor Vandegriff), good perimeter shooting (Stan Wier, Andrew MacKinnon), a true floor general running the point (Ron Canestro) and a coach (Greg Plumb) who’s basketball intelligence trickled down to his talented players.  It had me wondering if the team I was impressed with all season could compete with and beat the very best in the entire state.
