Bills AFC Rival New York Jets: An Improved Team For 2014 Season - Story

Posted by Mr. NFL on August 7, 2014 - 10:16am

The NY Jets training camp is just a short 90 miles southeast of the Buffalo Bills camp, in Cortland, NY at the SUNY Cortland campus. The Jets this season had upgraded their team with many new key additions to the quarterback and receiver position and their overall roster depth. The two quarterbacks for the Jets, Geno Smith and Michael Vick, looked in mid-season form when I visited their camp in August twice, as they completed passes with precise accuracy and without many balls hitting the ground. Both displayed excellent foot work, throwing technique and pocket awareness.

Sammy Watkins "Wows" Fans At Bills Camp - Story

Posted by Paul 'MR NFL' Adamo on July 30, 2014 - 9:33am

Watching Sammy Watkins run routes and go through drills during the Buffalo Bills camp practices any football fan can appreciate the raw, athletic talent of this rookie receiver from Clemson University. In the first two weeks of camp he has become the most talked about player, other than quarterback EJ Manual. He attracts attention whenever he steps on the field. He has demonstrated to the Bills fans and media that he possesses that intangible “Star” quality that comes along very infrequently in the NFL.

The Buffalo Bills 2014: A Season Of Decision - Story

Posted by Paul 'MR NFL' Adamo on July 22, 2014 - 1:50am

As I watched from the sideline Sunday night as the Bills opened their training camp with a night practice, one thought was on the mind of the large, raucous crowd of fans who packed Growney Stadium at St. John Fisher College in Pittsford, New York where the Bills hold their preseason camp. Perhaps, no team in the National Football League this 2014 season faces a more important decision for their franchise going forward then the Buffalo Bills regarding their quarterback EJ Manual. EJ Manual is the great question mark quarterback for this upcoming NFL campaign.
