Bills Begin To Pick Up The Pieces

Lynch In Trouble Again? A report is out saying that Marshawn Lynch is in trouble again. He allegedly stole $20 from a woman, who happens to be married to a police sargeant, at TGI Friday's on December 7th. A complaint has been filed but the alleged victim was waiting until Lynch left town after the season was over to lodge the complaint since she was scared. Hamburg police would not comment but confirmed a complaint was made.

Wilson Speaks: Ralph Wilson had a short television conversation with John Warrow of the AP and discussed the ongoing coaching search. He admitted the team has talked to Bill Cowher but he isn't sure if he's interested or not. Wilson said it doesn't matter if they hire a coach with an offensive or defensive background. This contradicts the thought that the team needed an offensive coach. He also said a name coach isn't necessary and they are taking their time in their search. Time is something they do have since it is one of only two open head coaching jobs. The Seattle job opened up today but seems on the verge of being filled by Pete Carroll.

Reed A Finalist: Andre Reed is one of a record four wide receivers on the finalist list for induction in the class of 2010 for the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He joins fellow receivers Tim Brown, Jerry Rice, and Chris Carter. Emmitt Smith is also on the list. It will be very hard for Reed to get in in the crowded bunch. Steve Tasker was a semi-finalist but did not make the finalist list. The class of 2010 will be announced on the day before the Super Bowl.

Coaching Search Continues: The Bills head coaching search continues with their second interview today as they are in Minnesota reportedly to meet with Leslie Frazier. Reports say Russ Grimm and Brian Schottenhemier are not interested at this time. We will keep you updated at a glance with the new box on the right side of our homepage. Check it out! While there take our new poll and let us know who you think will be the next head coach of the Buffalo Bills.


Wednesday January 6, 2010

Bills To Interview Frazier: The Bills will be interviewing Vikings defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier for the open head coaching position. The interview was confirmed by Vikings head coach Brad Childress. He did not say where or when the interview will take place but since the Vikings are on a bye this week the Bills will have to interview him this week and it is up to the Vikings where it will take place. Reports say it will happen tomorrow in Minnesota. He has been with the Vikings for three years and has been in the league for 11 previously he was the defensive backs coach under Tony Dungy in Indianapolis.

Fewell Gets Extensive Interview: Perry Fewell told the Buffalo News his interview for the Bills head coaching jbo went well on Monday night. He said it was an extensive four hour interview and he feels the Bills did it the right way. He isn't done yet as he reportedly will interview for the Giants defensive coordinator position on Thursday and is a top candidate for the same position with the Chicago Bears. The Bills are expected to take up to two weeks to decide on their next head coach with several rumors swirling on candidates from Bill Cowher to Brian Billick and a host of top coordinators in between.


Tuesday January 5, 2010

April Opts Out: According to reports the Bills have lost Bobby April. Despite the fact that the coaches are still technically under contract with the Bills he has opted out of his contract exercising a clause in it. He is essentially a free agent on the market.

Byrd Finishes Second: Jairus Byrd finished second in the voting for NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year. He was beat out for the award by Texans LB Brian Cushing who received 39 votes to Byrd's 6.

Gameday Recap: Let's take one final look back at the season finale win over the Colts. It didn't mean anything especially with the offseason underway with coaching rumors galore abound. It's still nice to look at the most dominating win of the season. Gameday Recap.

Fewell Gets First Interview: The Bills started the process of finding their next head coach by interviewing interim head coach Perry Fewell last night. His interview was promised when he accepted the interim job. It also satisfies the league requirement of interviewing a minority candidate. Fewell and his entire coaching staff were freed up to look for new jobs yesterday but Fewell is still considered a serious candidate for the head job and he, and his coaches, are technically still under contract with the team.


Monday January 4, 2010

Report: Cowher To Stay At CBS: Adam Schefter is reporting that Bill Cowher is not likely to coach in 2010 and will return to CBS. He said this could change but it appears he is not interested in the Bills job. Paul Hamilton is reporting for WGR that Brian Billick is assembling a staff for a possibility of coming to Buffalo according to a league source.

Bills Free Coaches: The Bills released a statement today confirming earlier reports that the coaching staff has been dismissed. They came just short of using the term fired or dismissed saying that all the coaches have been informed that their obligations to the team are fulfilled and they are free to interview for other jobs. They reportedly worded it that way because the coaches could conceivablly be brought back by the next head coach but they wanted to give them an option to look around at this time. The team also said that Perry Fewell is still a candidate for the head coaching job.

Report: Bills Ax Staff: Jay Glazer is reporting that the Bills have axed the entire coaching staff. This is not a surprise but it probably means Perry Fewell will not get the job since he would likely want to keep at least a few of the coaches. He is scheduled to interview for the head job this week maybe as early as today. If this report is true the only real surprise is the release of Bobby April as Special Teams coordinator.

Jackson's numbers: Fred Jackson put up impressive numbers this season. His 212 yards rushing against the Colts was the 7th most in team history and the first 200 yard game since 1990. He became the 11th Bill to rush for 1,000 yards in a season. Combine that with the 1,000 yards he had returning kicks and he is the first player in league history to do that in the same season. He also became the 4th player in league history to have 2,500 yards rushing, receiving, and returning punts and kicks. All these tidbits and more are on the right side of our gameday homepage.

Bills Draft 9th: The Bills will draft ninth in April's draft and their position won't change from round to round since they are the lone 6-10 team in the league this season. If they had lost to the Colts they would have picked one spot higher.

2010 Opponents Set: We now know who the Bills will play next season and where we just don't know when. Besides the home and away series with the three division opponents the Bills will host Jacksonville, Chicago, Pittsburgh, Detroit, and Cleveland. They travel to Cincinnati, Minnesota, Baltimore, Green Bay, and Kansas City. The road schedule looks daunting at this point with the exception of a third straight visit to Kansas City. Cleveland comes to Buffalo for the third straight season.
