Bills Over Browns 19 – 17

The Bills were victorious over the Browns 19 – 17 in last evenings preseason matchup.  The win came at a price as AJ McCarron suffered a broken collarbone and left the game in the second quarter.  He was replaced by Josh Allen who led an 80 yard scoring drive.  On the night he was 9 of 13 for 60 yards.  Nathan Peterman took over in the second half, completing a 35 yard touchdown pass to Nick O’Leary.  McCARRONS INJURY MAY THRUST ALLEN INTO THE STARTING POSITION SOONER THAN EXPECTED.  THE ROOKIE SENSATION DEMONSTRATED POISE AND MATURITY.  HOPING FOR THE BEST IN THE MIDST OF ADVERSITY, WE REGROUP AS 1BUFFALO.

The Bills will meet the Browns tonight on the road in Cleveland.  The second preseason game will match Tyrod Taylor against his former teammates.  Corey Coleman will be in uniform for the Bills following his trade last week from the Browns.  THE CENTRAL QUESTION IS WHO WILL BE THE STARTING QUARTERBACK.  ALL 3 CONTENDERS HAVE PLAYED WELL AND WILL BE LOOKING TO DISTINGUISH THEMSELVES.  LOOKING FORWARD TO A REMATCH OF THE BATTLE OF LAKE ERIE, WE AWAIT KICKOFF AS 1BUFFALO.

The Bills closed training camp yesterday and have returned to Orchard Park.  After 3 weeks of practice at St. John Fisher College they are now back on home turf.  Attention turns to preparations for tomorrows game in Cleveland.  THE TEAM BROKE CAMP WITHOUT A CLEAR CUT SOLUTION TO THE QUARTERBACK DILEMMA.  ALL 3 CONTENDERS REMAIN IN THE RUNNING TO START IN THE REGULAR SEASON OPENER AGAINST BALTIMORE.  ENERGIZED AS THE COMPETITION HEATS UP, WE SUPPORT OUR GUYS AS 1BUFFALO.

The Bills are preparing to meet the Browns on Friday in Cleveland.  The second preseason game will showcase the quarterback rivalry.  Tyrod Taylor will meet his former teammates while the Bills play their 3 signal callers.  THE COMPETITION FOR STARTER IS INTENSIFYING.  PETERMAN AND McCARRON ARE NECK TO NECK FOLLOWING STRONG PERFORMANCES AGAINST CAROLINA.  ALLEN WILL LIKELY SEE ACTION IN THE SECOND HALF.  ANXIOUS TO SEE HOW IT ALL PLAYS OUT, WE LOOK FOR ANSWERS AS 1BUFFALO.

LeSean McCoy is being sued by his former girlfriend, Delicia Cordon.  She alleges he failed to protect her during last months break-in at his Georgia home.  Cordon was beaten and bloodied during the attack.  THE LEAGUE IS INVESTIGATING McCOYS POTENTIAL INVOLVEMENT IN THE INCIDENT.  IF CHARGED HE COULD BE BARRED FROM PRACTICE AND PLAY.  LOOKING FOR JUSTICE TO BE SERVED, WE NERVOUSLY AWAIT WORD AS 1BUFFALO.

The Bills have signed defensive tackle Tyrunn Walker.  The 7 year veteran played last season for the Rams and has 85 tackles and 4.5 sacks in 58 career games.  He earlier was with the Saints and Lions.  To make room on the roster the Bills released DT John Hughes.  THE ADDITION OF WALKER ADDS DEPTH TO THE DEFENSE.  EXPECT THE BILLS TO CONTINUE THE PERSONNEL SHUFFLING AS CAMP ENTERS THE HOME STRETCH.  ANXIOUS TO SEE HOW IT ALL PLAYS OUT, WE WATCH FROM THE SIDELINES AS 1BUFFALO.

Coach Sean McDermott says he will take a calculated approach to Josh Allen.  The star rookie needs to be nurtured slowly.  Meanwhile Nathan Peterman and AJ McCarron are viable potential starters while Allen is being groomed.  JOSH HAS A RARE COMBINATION OF ATHLETICISM, MOBILITY, AND EXPLOSIVE THROWING ARM.  HE IS A GOOD LISTENER WHO CONNECTS WELL WITH HIS TEAMMATES.  CONTENT WITH THE COACH’S INCREMENTAL PROGRAM, WE NOD APPROVAL AS 1BUFFALO.

In the afterglow of his rookie debut Josh Allen should be brought along slowly.  Coach McDermott and general manager Beane are taking a balanced  gradual approach to his development.  There is no need to rush him into the starter position.  ALLEN LOOKED SHARP IN THE OPENER WITH CAROLINA.  HE CLEARLY IS THE FUTURE OF THE FRANCHISE.  LOOKING FOR CONTINUED PROGRESS AS HE TRANSITIONS TO THE PROS, WE SHOW SUPPORT AS 1BUFFALO.

All 3 Bills quarterbacks showed promise in last evenings 28 – 23 loss to Carolina.  Nathan Peterman started the preseason opener with an 85 yard scoring drive, completing 7 for 75 yards and a 28 yard scoring pass.  On the night he was 9 of 10 for 119 yards, a touchdown, and one interception.  AJ McCarron took over in the second quarter, going 7 of 10 for 119 yards and no touchdowns or interceptions.  Rookie Josh Allen made his debut in the second half, throwing 9 of 19 for 116 yards, one touchdown, and no interceptions.  ALL IN ALL IT WAS AN IMPRESSIVE SHOWING BY THE QUARTERBACK CORPS.  COACH McDERMOTT SAID HE LIKED THE ENERGY SURROUNDING ALL 3 SIGNAL CALLERS.  ENERGIZED BY THEIR UPBEAT PERFORMANCES, WE LOOK AHEAD AS 1BUFFALO.

Heading into tonights preseason opener with the Panthers, Coach McDermott is mum on who will start as quarterback.  He will make his decision known to the players prior to game time.  BOTH NATHAN PETERMAN AND AJ McCARRON ARE FIRST HALF CONTENDERS, HAVING TAKEN REPS WITH THE FIRST OFFENSE THIS WEEK.  JOSH ALLEN WILL LIKELY SEE ACTION IN THE SECOND HALF.  HE HAS NOT WORKED WITH THE FIRST TEAM SQUAD SINCE LAST THURSDAY.  LOOKING TO SEE HOW IT ALL PLAYS OUT, WE HOPE FOR THE BEST AS 1BUFFALO.
