Filmroom Breakdown: Week 5

It’s been a difficult 17 years, hasn’t it? In that span of misfortune, I don’t think I can remember a player as highly scrutinized as Tyrod Taylor. The only player I can think of as close is Ryan Fitzpatrick after he inked that ridiculous 6-year $59 million deal in 2011. Truthfully, I’m not old enough to remember the ins and outs of the 1999 season or the Doug Flutie/Rob Johnson thing, so Taylor takes the (my) cake. I already offered

Filmroom Breakdown: Week 4

It was another week and another upset victory for the Bills when they beat arguably the best team in the NFL on the road to follow up a huge victory at home against one of the league’s top defenses. It’s safe to say that the Bills have had a pretty remarkable start to their 2017 season. They’re a team that had very modest expectations going into mini-camp and, after the Sammy Watkins trade, those expectations plummeted to an all-drought low. Fast-forward

Film Room Breakdown: Week 3

I definitely didn’t think I’d be writing this breakdown following a two-score victory over a 2-0 Broncos team that embarrassed America’s team in primetime the week before. But, here I am. The offense, and more specifically the passing game, really gave this Bills’ defense a boost. They were able to sustain long drives, putting together consecutive first downs that led to points. It gave the already confident Bills defense a chance to rest, and you could see the results on

Film Room Breakdown: Week 2

Well, it was an ugly game on Sunday, a 9-3 loss to the Carolina Panthers. I’m sorry to do this to you, but there is film to go over, and there are people to blame not named Tyrod Taylor. Unfortunately, I had a front row seat to one of the worst offensive performances I can remember, and that’s saying something. The unique thing about Bank of America Stadium is the 300-level seating. I felt like I had a bird’s eye view

Film Room Breakdown: Tyrod Taylor Week 1

My high school football coach used to call the tall camera that was placed in the back of the end zone between the field goal posts ‘big brother’. It preyed on its victims from 30 feet up, revealing all the mistakes they make during each game. After a win, you couldn’t wait to get to Saturday morning film, but after a loss…not so much. In week one, the Bills likely enjoyed a pretty upbeat film session on Monday morning. In

Nate Geary’s Training Camp Observations

  After four full days of Training Camp, two of which were in full pads, the Bills have put together a string of very productive practices in the first Training Camp for Bills head coach Sean McDermott.   Although it hasn’t all been pretty, the businesslike mentality shown the first few days of camp have been a refreshing change from last year’s laid-back environment. Offense, defense, and special teams have been disciplined. There has been a noticeable absence of offside

Nate Geary’s Camp Primer

If you can believe it, another Bills season is upon us. The most anticipated time of year is just days away, as Training Camp from St. John Fisher College in Rochester is set to open its doors. There are new faces everywhere, including at head coach, quarterback, receiver, safety, and cornerback. This year also brings the excitement of new schemes, both offensively and defensively, that many feel better suit the personnel the Bills will be marching onto the field on Sundays. But

Nate Geary’s Top 10 QBs: #1 Patrick Mahomes

1. Patrick Mahomes (Jr.) – Texas Tech Height: 6-2 Weight: 225 40-Yard Dash: 4.8 Career Stats:             11,252 passing yards, 93 TDs, 29 INTs, 63.5 comp. % Player Comparison: Matt Stafford Projected Draft Round: 1   The Lowdown: Mahomes is one of my favorite prospects I’ve scouted in depth, and he’s one of the more unique passers I’ve had the chance to see. His arm strength rivals that of JaMarcus Russell (I know what you’re thinking), the former number one

Nate Geary’s Top 10 QBs: #2 DeShone Kizer

2. DeShone Kizer (RS-So.) – Notre Dame Height: 6-4 Weight: 235 40-Yard Dash: 4.83 Career Stats:              5,805 passing yards, 47 TDs, 19 INTs, 60.7 comp. % Player Comparison: Matt Ryan Projected Draft Round: 1-2 The Lowdown: When it comes to Kizer, I do admit I have a bit of a bias, being a Notre Dame fan. However, I re-watched all but two of Kizer’s games from 2016 in an attempt to make an objective assessment of him. I watched every game live during the 2016 season,

Nate Geary’s Top 10 QBs: #3 Mitchell Trubisky

3. Mitchell Trubisky (Jr.) – North Carolina Height: 6-2 Weight: 220 40-Yard Dash: 4.67 Career Stats:             4,762 passing yards, 41 TDs, 10 INTs, 67.5 comp. % Player Comparison: Kirk Cousins Projected Draft Round: 1   The Lowdown: Trubisky is such an interesting prospect to me. He only has 14 collegiate starts under his belt, but he wasn’t a transfer who only got one year to start. He sat behind a pair of players who didn’t end up being drafted,
