  1. Haven’t been this excited for a Bills team since Flutie was our QB!! I hope this D is what it looks like and not just a paper tiger! Go Bills!

  2. Thank you for the link to the Brian Banks interview. Everyone, whether a football fan or not, should take the time to listen to some of what he has to say.

    What an amazing young man. Even if he doesn’t make it on the football field, this guy has a bright future. I know if he wrote a book (and he will), I’d buy it. He’s in SoCal, so the movie rights are almost a formality. Given his demeanor and his clear, concise delivery, in addition to all that he has had to overcome, a career as a motivational speaker is a definite possibility.

  3. Deonte Thompson
    Aaron Hernandez
    David Nelson
    Louis Murphy
    Riley Cooper

    What do these guys have in common? Once they got away from scattershot self-indulgent Tim Tebow they actually look good. Coincidence?
