Bills Preseason Schedule Announced

The Buffalo Bills now know which teams they will be playing this coming preseason. They also know, they get to open the preseason this year with a matchup against the Tennessee Titans in the Hall of Fame game in Canton, OH on Sunday, August 9th at 8:00pm. Quite appropriate that the Bills would be featured, as Bruce Smith – one of the all time greatest Buffalo Bills – will be enshrined that weekend.

The rest of the schedule looks like this:

8/9 8:00pm – Tennessee (in Canton, OH)
Wk 1 (TBA) – Chicago
Wk 2 (TBA) – @ Green Bay
Wk 3 (TBA) – @ Pittsburgh
Wk 4 (TBA) – Detroit Lions

I guess the NFL thought the NFC North needed to practice against the Bills this preseason? 🙂

Exact dates and times will be announced later, but it’s fun to see the 2009 season begin to take shape. Football is (just?) around the corner!

Buffalo Bills 50th Anniversary Team : Defense

It’s time to pick your all-time defense for the Buffalo Bills. Voting is now open for defensive players (and head coach, too) at the Bills website. Above are my selections for the team. I tried hard to not just pick guys from the 90s Super Bowl teams. I think I did a pretty good job…

Have fun picking yours!

Buffalo Bills 50th Anniversary Team

Perhaps you have already heard that is accepting your nominations for the greatest Buffalo Bills players of all time. Position by position. You name your players for the 50th anniversary of the Buffalo Bills. Above are my picks for the offense. Some tough choices actually. (Notice that not many from this current team are in that line-up…)

Maybe we’ll even do an off-season show discussing who we think would make the all-time team from the first 50 seasons? We’ll see.

For now you can play along here. Pretty cool website the boys have put together. Have fun voting!

The Thurmanator

Thurman Thomas and Marv Levy at 2007 Hall of Fame Enshrinement
As most (I’d guess ALL) of you know, Thurman Thomas was enshrined at the NFL Hall of Fame in Canton, OH this weekend. His career forever bronzed in a metal representation of his head.

If you got to see him play, you know what an amazing career it was. (I still contend he is the best overall player in the old NES game Tecmo Superbowl…) The guy led the league in yards from scrimmage … several times! You can check out all his stats, but most people who watched him know that it was his determination to win, to overcome, that not only set him apart, but for the span of his career with the Bills, was the mark of the entire team.

Maybe it started with the Thurmanator.

If you click the image above it will open a streaming video in RealPlayer of Thurman’s HOF speech on Aug 4th. But there are many more things at the HOF site, so click on that link below. There’s also a great video up at the Buffalo Bills website, so check that out when you can. Plus, a great article at by Vic Carucci.

It’s time to celebrate Thurman, so here are some good ways to do it. (Add any others in the comments below…)

BBR @ [UNDER CONSTRUCTION] has been hosting my regular Bills column for the past year or so (I think I started writing just before the season began), but it was hosted on the message boards, and yesterday those received a (greatly anticipated) overhaul. What that also means is… my column there is (at least temporarily) gone.

Earlier this year, ALL of my posts prior to February (I believe) we automatically deleted by a script that was purging old posts!!! That was extremely frustrating, sad, etc… but I realized if I wanted to keep the stuff I was writing for posterity (or even just to link back to…) I would need to stash it somewhere else!

I created a page that has heretofore not been publicly linked, but since the other site is down (for an indefinite amount of time) I thought I’d link it for you.

To read my BBR @ column (what I have saved since February…) just go to:

Once I hear from, I’ll update the link in the main navigation above. For now, the back-up copy will have to do 🙂

Fun Weekend With Some Buffalo Bills

Who You Callin' No Foot?
Hey folks!

I just posted a lengthy article over at the BBR @ Blog about some Bills-related fun and frivolity from this weekend. We got to meet three Buffalo Bills players, and hang out and even play football with one of them! Check out the article for the full story.

As for the photo above… that is a scan of the autographed piece of paper I am sending to Uncle Josh, of Buffalo Bills Review fame. 🙂

For those of you who have been with us from the beginning… you know the story of how Rian Lindell became “No Foot”. Josh was calling him out in PRESEASON!!! Crazy. Anyway, turns out Lindell had a phenomenal year, and an even better one last season. So we have weekly “No Foot” tallys during the season, even made a “No Foot for Pro Bowl” shirt!!! (Available at the BBR Store!)

Anyway… I had the opportunity to explain the story to Lindell on Saturday, and he thought it was hilarious. So I asked him to send a note to Uncle Josh… the creator of that moniker, and … the above is what he wrote.

Hilarious! Thanks No Foot!! 🙂

Can’t wait to do the first show of season three! Training camp is coming soon! We’ll have some interviews with players, reports from camp, and all sorts of fun things!
