The Bills have named Derek Boyko the new vice president of communications. He previously spent 17 years as public relations chief with Philadelphia. The Kenmore native is a graduate of Canisius College. Boyko’s appointment comes at a critical time for the Bills. External communications are in disarray and dysfunction is rampant. BOYKO WILL NEED TO RESTORE CREDIBILITY TO BILLS P.R. HOPEFUL THAT HE IS UP TO THE TASK, WE ARE ALL 1BUFFALO.
The Bills should use their 10th overall pick to take a quarterback in the draft. They would be building for the future while looking for a veteran in free agency. Tyrod Taylor has disappointed in his 2 years in Buffalo and must be canned. His overly rich contract must be jettisoned – another blunder of the Doug Whaley regime. A FIRST ROUND QUARTERBACK IS THE LONG-TERM SOLUTION. THE BILLS MUST RESET FROM THE GROUND UP. GOING WITH YOUTH AS THE TEAM REBUILDS, WE ARE ALL 1BUFFALO.
Tyrod Taylor has received medical clearance from the Bills physicians. This enables the team to release him prior to March 11th without guaranteeing $27.5 million that would be due under his contract. Buffalo can now either attempt to restructure his contract or part company with Taylor. He has been a major disappointment in his 2 years with the Bills. General manager Doug Whaley ineptly signed him to a 6 year, $92 million deal. BOTH TAYLOR AND WHALEY SHOULD BE SHOWN THE EXITS. THE BILLS WILL BE BETTER OFF WITHOUT THEM. HOPING THAT PEGULA COMES TO HIS SENSES, WE ARE ALL 1BUFFALO.
The Bills are likely to release Tyrod Taylor. The day of reckoning is fast approaching on March 11th. Buffalo either pays him ridiculous guaranteed money or he is history. Taylor has been a bust on the field. The Bills front office once again stumbled in structuring his overly generous contract. THE TEAM WILL BE BETTER OFF WITH TAYLOR GONE. THE BILLS CAN LOOK TO FREE AGENCY FOR A STOP GAP QUARTERBACK AND TO THE DRAFT FOR A LONG TERM SOLUTION. HOPEFUL THAT MANAGEMENT WILL DO THE RIGHT THING, WE ARE ALL 1BUFFALO.
Marcell Dareus has contributed to the Hope for Haiti charity. The Bills defensive lineman has followed up a $25,000 contribution with a trip to his father’s homeland. Haiti has been ravaged by hurricane and earthquake. The money will help alleviate suffering. KUDOS TO MARCELL FOR HIS CARING OUTREACH. HE EXEMPLIFIES THE SOCIAL CONSCIENCE OF NFL PLAYERS. PROUD OF HIS PHILANTHROPY, WE ARE ALL 1BUFFALO.
The Bills front office is in turmoil. Terry Pegula is entering his fourth year as owner and has yet to hit his mark. The crisis at quarterback is evidence of this uncertainty. With the day of reckoning approaching over Tyrod Taylor there is no clear game plan. Pegula stubbornly stands behind inept general manager Doug Whaley who needs to exit. THE BILLS ARE A FRANCHISE IN DISARRAY. THE PLAYOFF DROUGHT IS LIKELY TO CONTINUE UNLESS CHANGE IS FORTHCOMING. HOPING THAT PEGULA MAKES THE NECESSARY ADJUSTMENTS, WE ARE ALL 1BUFFALO.
The Bills will be looking to free agency for quarterback. Tyrod Taylor’s days are numbered. A number of veterans will likely be free agents. Tony Romo, Colin Kaepernick, and Jay Cutler are all candidates for release by their teams. Any one of them would provide a short-term fix for Buffalo. THE LONG-TERM SOLUTION IS THROUGH THE DRAFT. WITH THE 10th OVERALL PICK THE BILLS CAN TAKE A TALENTED ROOKIE AND DEVELOP HIM INTO AN EVENTUAL FRANCHISE QUARTERBACK. LOOKING TO SOLVE THE QUARTERBACK DILEMMA, WE ARE ALL 1BUFFALO.
EJ Manuel is likely to be released by the Bills. The former 16th overall draft pick has failed to produce. He never lived up to expectations. Overall he went 6 – 10 in Buffalo. The Bills have a crisis at quarterback. They are unlikely to pick up Tyrod Taylor’s option. That leaves only the unproven Cardale Jones on the roster. THE ANSWER TO THE QUARTERBACK DILEMMA IS THROUGH FREE AGENCY OR THE DRAFT. ALL 3 OF LAST YEARS QUARTERBACKS SHOULD BE CANNED. LOOKING TO THE FRONT OFFICE FOR ANSWERS, WE ARE ALL 1BUFFALO.
Buffalo native Michael Dubke has been named White House Communications Director. He is also a huge Bills fan and season ticket holder. Dubke is principal of public relations firm Black Rock Group based in Alexandria, Virginia. He has represented key politicians including local congressman Chris Collins. THE BILLS NOW HAVE A MAJOR BACKER IN THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION. HE FREQUENTLY ATTENDS HOME GAMES AT NEW ERA FIELD. PROUD THAT ONE OF OUR OWN IS ON THE NATIONAL STAGE, WE ARE ALL 1BUFFALO.
The Bills have re-signed backup linebacker Ramon Huber. The deal was reached one month before he was to become a free agent. Huber also plays on special teams. The 8 year veteran has spent one season with Buffalo. He had 12 special teams tackles last year. THE BILLS WERE SMART TO RE-SIGN HUBER. HIS DEPTH OF EXPERIENCE AND CONTRIBUTIONS SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES. CONFIDENT THERE WILL BE MORE SMART SIGNINGS, WE ARE ALL 1BUFFALO.
