Buffalo Bills: Things We Know This Week
“Mafia style, nice.” – Jim Kelly
Jim Kelly had an ingratiating commercial cameo after half time of Super Bowl 57. Great Job Jimbo!
“It’s pointless to get all huffy about stuff.” – Greg Gutfeld
Greg Gutfeld boasted about his commercial leading up to Super Bowl week. In all actuality, Gutfeld got about as much airtime promoting his own show as a Jim Kelly cameo did during a flag football commercial. Seven Million Dollars for a 30 second commercial. Damn inflation.
“The man who complains about the way the ball BOUNCES is likely the one who DROPPED it.” – Lou Holtz
Just over three catches per game is not good enough for Buffalo’s number two wide receiver, Gabe Davis. He was banged up pretty good earlier in the season. His HUGE playoff performance against Kansas City the previous year, with four touchdown receptions, may have made his stock rise prematurely. Expectations were certainly inflated.
“Matt Millen, you draft a wide receiver every year. HOW DARE YOU SIR, HOW DARE YOU!” – Keith Olbermann
Khalil Shakir showed potential.
I shall steal shamelessly from the legendary Art Wander… “Wait-a-minute. Wait-a-minute. Wait-a-minute. DON’T GET ME STARTED” on Isaiah Hodgins.
“That receiver was as wide open as Annabel Chong.” – Dennis Miller
Maybe it was just premature to cut ties with Emmanuel Sanders and Cole Beasley in the same off-season. A great offense needs great route runners. Not just Stefon Diggs. (Ya think?) Diggs and Davis were both healthy when the Bills went into the rolodex to phone a friend. The friends were John Brown and Cole Beasley. Your team depth is not supposed to be former players you cut who are unemployed.
Things we know about the Buffalo Bills this week:
Free agent safety Zayne Anderson signed a two-year contract with the Buffalo Bills on Friday. He played linebacker before making the change to safety at BYU.

On March 10th, Sean McDermott will be inducted into the William & Mary Athletics HALL-OF-FAME.
Conrad Dobler, the legendary Bills offensive lineman from the early 1980s, passed away Monday. Godspeed.
