Bills - Quarter Pole


The final stretch run is here… and the AFC East has the New England Patriots and Buffalo Bills both sitting at 8-4 with a 2 game lead over the New York Jets [6-6] and a 4 game lead over cellar dweller Miami Dolphins [4-8].

Rookie Watch
LE Noah Spence: Currently has 44 tackles (9 for a loss), 9 sacks and 2 INT’s… is it too crazy to think we’re looking at the DROY?
LT Shon Coleman: Currently has 58 pancakes and has allowed 3 sacks.
QB Chris Archer: Currently 40 of 78 [51%] for 479 yards with 2 TD’s 3 INT’s.
QB Pierce Lyons: has not played, coach’s decision.
FS Vince Akeem: 15 tackle (1 for a loss) & a fumble recovery.

New Comers Contribution
WR Carlton Mitchell: Has 15 reception for 176 yards and a TD… has now found himself as the 4th option with the arrival of WR/KR Percy Harvin.
TE Marques Johnson: Has 38 receptions for 442 yards and 2 TD’s with 30 pancake and 1 sack… a pleasant addition to the offense, and likely to be in place in Buffalo for some time.
LG David Yankey: Has 52 pancakes and 1 allowed sack.
C Trey Owen: Has 30 pancakes and 2 sacks.
MLB Mark Ingram: Has had 92 tackles (9 for a loss), 1 forced fumble 1 fumble recovery, 2 INT’s and a TD… the HEART of the defense (but is his contract going to be an issue next season?)!
RE Williams Gholston: Has 29 tackles (7 tackle for a loss) and 4 sacks.
WR Percy Harvin: Has 15 receptions, 251 yards and 2 TD’s in 5 weeks… all that coming from the slot. Worth noting… Harvin is just 208 yards short of the 10,000 yard milestone (with 4 games remaining in his career). ~ I promise this… Harvin will get 10,000 yards! ~

Buffalo Bills: Despite injuries, Bills in the mix [5-4]



The AFC East appears to be a 3 horse race… the Bills, Jets and Patriots all sit at 5-4.

The Bills have 3 divisional game remaining… 2 vs the Jets and 1 against the Jets, so much of what unfolds in the 2nd half of the seasons rides on those 3 games obviously.

The Bills have had to rise above the injuries suffered thus far…

• Starting QB wasn’t available until week 5.
• Back-up QB wasn’t able to get through week 1… lost for the season.
• HB Riddick Owen lost for the season… half the season missed again.
• SS Mark Barron will miss more than half the season.
• LOLB Jeremiah Joseph misses 6 games.

No doubt the Bills will find the need to lean on the arm of Matthew Stafford in the 2nd half with Owen, at best, returning the final week of the season vs the Jets. It’d be nice if the sophomore slump QR Laquon Treadwell was experience came to an abrupt end… only 1 game over 100 yards and has yet to find the endzone.

Rookie Watch
LE Noah Spence: Currently has 27 tackles (5 for a loss), 5 sacks and an INT… he will get his 1st start @ DE this coming week against the Kansas City Chiefs.
LT Shon Coleman: Currently has 42 pancakes and has allowed 2 sacks.
QB Chris Archer: Currently 40 of 78 [51%] for 479 yards with 2 TD’s 3 INT’s.
QB Pierce Lyons: has not played, coach’s decision.
FS Vince Akeem: 11 tackle (1 for a loss) & a fumble recovery.

New Comers Contribution
WR Carlton Mitchell: Has 11 reception for 112 yards and a TD… has now found himself as the 4th option with the arrival of WR/KR Percy Harvin.
TE Marques Johnson: Has 33 receptions for 399 yards and a TD with 21 pancake and 1 sack… a pleasant addition to the offense.
LG David Yankey: Has 40 pancakes and has NOT given up a sack.
C Trey Owen: Has 23 pancakes and 2 sacks.
MLB Mark Ingram: Has had 71 tackles (6 for a loss), 1 forced fumble 1 fumble recovery, 2 INT’s and a TD… the HEART of the defense!
RE Williams Gholston: Has 22 tackles (5 tackle for a loss) and 4 sacks.

Buffalo Bills use Veteran Exception Contract on...


Buffalo Bills welcome Percy Harvin to the team...

The Buffalo Bills made a move early this morning to add depth to their WR set and inject some JUICE into the kick return game that has been missing all season.

There’s no avoiding the elephant in the room… WR / KR Percy Harvin has been a malcontent most of his career, regardless of where he called home. But the Bills are hoping the former 1st round selection has matured and can realize this might be his last chance of playing before officially retiring.

The Bills will likely utilize Percy Harvin as a slot WR, at best, and more likely a 4th option on the depth chart. His true value and opportunity to shine will be in the kick return game. Though Harvin has 9,541 yards receiving in his career (4 seasons of 1,000 plus yards and 75 total TD’s in 11 seasons)… his 11 TD’s as a kick returner is what has the Buffalo Bill calling for his services.
The Buffalo Bills have offered WR / KR Percy Harvin the “Veteran Exception Contract” which pays 1 million for 1 year and includes a bonus of 500K. Chump change no doubt, but the Bills offer the opportunity for Harvin to possibly reach the 10,000 yard marker in receiving and cement himself as the as one of, if not the best GZL Kick Returner ever (it might take one of his best seasons to overtake Ted Ginn Jr).

GM Darryl Breckheimer had this to say… “We looked at a couple of guys to bring in, but in the end we liked the upside Percy Harvin offered. We realize Percy might have lost a step, but you really can’t look past the experience he brings to the team. I have no doubt he’ll contribute immediately on the field and count on him being a positive factor in the locker room”.

Game Recaps
The Buffalo Bills have moved to 4-2 on the season after a 3 game stretch where the AFC East has become a 2 horse race (New York Jets by a nose right now). This 3 game stretch also saw the return of QB Matthew Stafford who is completing just shy of 50% of his passes, is averaging 235 yards and has 5 TD’s passes with just 1 INT (QB rtg of 87).

Rookie Watch
LE Noah Spence: Currently has 23 tackles (5 for a loss), 4 sacks and an INT (in just 4 games).
LT Shon Coleman: Currently has 34 pancakes and has allowed 2 sacks.
QB Chris Archer: Currently 40 of 78 [51%] for 479 yards with 2 TD’s 3 INT’s.
QB Pierce Lyons: has not played, coach’s decision.
FS Vince Akeem: 8 tackle (1 for a loss) & a fumble recovery.

New Comers Contribution

FS Dean Rowe: Has 25 tackles (1 tackle for a loss), 1 forced fumble and 2 INT’s.
SS Lake Anthony: Has 11 tackles and a forced fumble.

Offensive Player of the Team (thus far)
HB Riddick Owen: With 148 carries for 656 yards [4.43 avg] he ensure the team owns time of possession battle... even though QB Matthew Stafford is back in the fold, this team looks to Owen to be the work-horse and lead the offense.

Defensive Player of the Team (thus far)
MLB Melvin Ingram: With 49 tackles (2 for a loss), a forced fumble, fumble recovery and an interception returned 33 yards for a TD… he has been a GREAT pick-up from this recent offseason. ~ Honorable Mention… LE/LOLB Noah Spence has shown the potential to be a game changer, can you say “DROY”??? ~

Buffalo Bills: WK 4 recap [2-1]


Week 4
Miami Dolphins 17
Buffalo Bills 27

Game Recap
The Buffalo Bills won the turnover battle and the time of possession battle… and honestly, controlled the game from start to finish. Though the team is hopeful QB Matthew Stafford will return next week when the team faces the Green Bay Packers they have confidence in QB Chris Archer to manage a game and do just enough to keep them competitive. The team looked to HB Riddick Owen, once again, and with 28 carries for 108 yards and a TD supported by a defense that held the Dolphins offense in check… the Buffalo Bills walk away with the victory.

Rookie Watch
LE Noah Spence: 3 tackles [1 for a loss] and a deflection… played at OLB
LT Shon Coleman: Respectable with 6 pancakes and allowed his 1st sack.
QB Chris Archer: 10 of 21 [48%] for 163 yards with 1 TD’s 1 INT.
QB Pierce Lyons: DNP, coach’s decision.
FS Vince Akeem: DNP, coach’s decision.

New Comers Contribution
WR Carlton Mitchell: 3 reception for 40 yards and a TD.
TE Marques Johnson: 2 receptions for 15 yards with 2 pancake and no sacks.
LG David Yankey: 2 pancakes and did NOT give up a sack.
C Trey Owen: 3 pancakes and no sacks.
MLB Mark Ingram: Had 6 tackles [1 for a loss] a deflection and a fumble recovery returned for a TD.
RE Williams Gholston: 2 tackles.
FS Dean Rowe: 4 tackles with 2 deflections.
SS Lake Anthony: DNP, coach’s decision.
DT Colt Hemingway: 2 tackles [1 for a loss].

Offensive Player of the Game
HB Riddick Owen: With 28 carries for 106 yards [3.79 avg] and a TD he ensured the team owned time of possession battle... critical in keeping a game close where the Bills are leaning on a rookie QB behind center. The victory was a HUGE upset and hopefully propels the team to bigger things as they see the return of QB Matthew Stafford.

Defensive Player of the Game
MLB Mark Ingram: With 6 tackles (1 for a loss) and a fumble recovery returned 25 yards for a TD… he stands out as a difference maker.
