Clausen impressive at Pro Day, will visit Bills next

  • Posted on April 9, 2010 at 2:06 pm

Jimmy Clausen held his Pro Day workout Friday early afternoon in South Bend and based what I saw on the live feed and from speaking to people who covered it, Clausen looked very good on his throws.

Reportedly Clausen hit on 57 of 59 passes.

As expected, Bills GM Buddy Nix, Director of College Scouting Tom Modrak, and several Bills assistant coaches were in attendance to see Clausen and some of the other Irish hopefuls.

Clausen, who is still not fully recovered from his toe surgery, threw darts to receivers Golden Tate, James Aldridge, Robby Parris and David Grimes.  Afterwards in an interview he described himself as 75-80% healthy. Because he’s still recovering from the toe injury, Clausen didn’t attempt any bootlegs or rolling out before passes, but he still demonstrated sound footwork and didn’t seem to have problems getting off the snap and moving around.

Brain Buster: The Sabres Playoff Scenarios

  • Posted on April 9, 2010 at 10:09 am

This Buffalo Sabres will be in the playoffs when they start next week and by winning the Northeast Division, they earned no lower than a third seed.  That much we know for sure.

After that things hit a state of nebulous.  Buffalo can still finish in second place in the Eastern Conference.  They could play the sixth or the seventh seed in the first round.  Who will those opponents be? It’s too hard to tell right now.

The playoff picture is presently more scrambled than Rocky Balboa’s brain.

Fortunately for those craving scenarios and information, we’re impatient and not ready to give up so easily.  The following is a breakdown of what could happen entering the final weekend of the NHL regular season, how the Sabres could fare and who they may be face when the postseason commences next Wednesday or Thursday (no, we don’t even know that yet either.)

Sabres Sign 2008 2nd Round Pick Luke Adams

  • Posted on April 9, 2010 at 8:40 am

Buffalo Sabres General Manager Darcy Regier announced today the Sabres have signed forward Luke Adam to a three-year entry level contract. The Sabres selected Adam in the second round (44th overall) in the 2008 Entry Draft. Adam will finish this season with the Portland Pirates on an AHL ATO, and his NHL contract will begin next season.

The Sabres have now locked up their top three picks from the 2008 Draft, and two of them – first rounders Tyler Myers and Tyler Ennis – have already had an immediate impact in the NHL.

Bills like Schouman more than you think

  • Posted on April 9, 2010 at 8:00 am

Derek SchoumanLost among the estimated million or so stories and mocks connecting Tim Tebow and Jimmy Clausen to the Buffalo Bills Thursday was the lightly reported news that restricted free agent tight end Derek Schouman signed his tender to remain with the team for 2010.

While the move comes low-key universally doesn’t compare to Dwan Edwards or Andre Davis signings in terms of fan enthusiasm, the organization clearly wanted him back in the fold, probably more than you think.

Schouman’s career numbers are hardly impressive; 27 career catches in 21 games for 275 yards and all of one touchdown. He’ll never be confused with Antonio Gates or Vernon Davis.
