McKelvin's Individual Effort

With all of the good things that happened this week (CJ, the o-line play, five sacks, pumpkin beer in stores) it seems like Leo's dazzling return hasn't gotten too much attention. I took a look at...

NFL Preseason Live for Fans Outside of Buffalo

8

For fans living outside of Buffalo, you can watch (and rewatch) all of the Bills preseason games for $20. I believe it's blacked out in the local markets, but good to go for everyone else. Might be old news for some, but as a fan not living in Buffalo I am always looking for ways to watch games and this is an easy one. Very excited for ~18 snaps on each side of the ball tonight!

God forbid our bills go winless this year and god forbid there is a lockout next year, what happens with the draft? Logically I know we wouldn't get consecutive number 1 picks, but is there any...

Watch Pre-Season Games on NFL.com

+

It's not cheap, but for those of us outside of the Buffalo area, you can watch the preseason games on NFL.com. So far the video quality has been pretty good. 40 bucks for just about every pre-season game and most of them can be watched "on demand" as well.

Spiller's priceless wisdom

I am all aboard the Spiller train. A couple of my favorite quotes from an ESPN profile last week: "When the Tigers struggled midway through the 2008 season, Spiller watched how Florida's All-America quarterback Tim Tebow rallied his own teammates to the national championship with a rousing postgame speech after a loss to Mississippi. Spiller wondered why he wasn't providing the same kind of inspiration to his own squad. A few weeks later, he was organizing the other leaders on the team to hold a players-only meeting and regain their focus." "My thing is that if you're a ballplayer, then you'll always be a ballplayer," said Spiller, who became the first member of his family to graduate from a four-year college. "But once this is done, I wanted something I could fall back on. And I didn't want to be some 30-year-old guy coming back here to finish up my classes." "I think I really grew in my pass protection. I wasn't responsible for a lot of that [earlier in college] because I had to get on the edge and catch passes. But I wanted to show people I could block. I didn't want anybody to have any questions about my game." So he is an elite talent and someone with a good head on his shoulders who wants to be a complete player. Yeah, I am allllllllllllll aboard the Spiller train.

After the Buffalo Bills sniffed around Bill Cowher -- and learned he's likely not coming back in 2010 -- they may be looking West. Stanford coach and former NFL QB Jim Harbaugh might another leading candidate for the opening, after the Bills fired their entire coaching staff. Longtime NFL coaches Marty Schottenheimer and Brian Billick are also in the mix but, as the Buffalo News writes, a younger coach might be in order. It will be interesting to see if Harbaugh has interest in an NFL job. He certainly wasn't interested in the medium-profile collegiate jobs that came up, saying he was a "Stanford man." Plus, he just signed an extension with the Cardinal. But if he's offered the gig, it might be hard for him to turn down. Harbaugh is losing at least five assistant at Stanford, and he might want to join his older brother and Ravens coach John Harbaugh in the NFL. via ESPN http://insider.espn.go.com/nfl/features/rumors

Turnovers and Penalties by the Numbers

Is winning football games really as easy winning the turnover and penalty battle? For the Bills, the answer is a pretty easy yes.

Mission Accomplished.

We wanted a chance to restore the luster of Bills fans... well, we got ourselves on the front page of cbssports.com, thanks to a huge assist from Clark Judge. He says it in the article... but I might as well say it again... awesome job Buffalo Rumblings. You guys are the best!

As usual, these guys do a great job of providing a fairly balanced opinion while throwing in a couple of great stats. Particularly interesting angle to the story given the quality of writing and information on this site.

Jets reportedly exploring trade for Brandon Marshall

6

"Per a report from Bob Glauber, the Jets are "seriously exploring" a possible trade for Marshall, who is currently suspended for the remainder of the preseason for conduct detrimental to the team." I know Dick has a lot of detractors on the site - but having depth in the defensive backfield looks like its going to be table stakes to competing in the AFC East this season. Also, as much of a nut job that Marshall clearly is, I'm hoping he lands in someone else's division...

"That whole Dallas deal blindsided him," Guy says. "It hurt him. I felt like this would be a good place to heal, and he did too. We don't have a team that's loaded with stars. I told him, 'You know, you have to take these guys where they want to go. They'll follow you, you just have to take them.' I think they will. I think he relishes that." Have to hand it to the Bills Front Office... not only have they brought in an outstanding player, but they seem to be making the extra effort to get the most out of him.
