THANKYOU SPORTS AND LEISURE FOR A DREAM COME TRUE - Blog

THANKYOU SPORTS AND LEISURE FOR A DREAM COME TRUE

By John Williams

I wasn't always a Buffalo Bills' fan. The Dallas Cowboys were initially my team.

My interest in the National Football League can be traced back 50 years to Sunday January 17, 1971. It was late afternoon and I decided to pay my friend Tim Robinson a visit. He lived across the street from me.

Tim was watching Super Bowl V between the Cowboys and Baltimore Colts all by himself. Boy, have times ever changed.

HOW I BECAME A TIGER CAT FAN

By John Williams

Don't get me wrong - I love the NFL. In particular, the Buffalo Bills.

I've been a Bills' fan since their heyday of the early 1990s. I firmly believe those days are returning with the play of QB Josh Allen.

But my love for football can be traced back to the fall of 1970 when I became a CFL fan. Yes, that much maligned league that has existed like a third cousin in the shadow of the NFL for over 60 years.

It was November 21st and my dad and I had obtained tickets for the second game of the CFL Eastern final.

CAN JOSH ALLEN DELIVER SUPER BOWL IN 2020 - Blog

CAN JOSH ALLEN DELIVER SUPER BOWL IN 2020

By John Williams

Josh Allen is in his third year as the Buffalo Bills starting quarterback. He's all of 24 years old.

Jim Kelly was 28 when he led the Bills in his third campaign. He turned 31 right after leading Buffalo to their first of four consecutive Super Bowl appearances.

The Bills haven't graced the NFL's grandest stage since. They haven't won a playoff game since 1995 - Kelly's second last season.

PRELUDE TO A SPORTSWRITING CAREER

By John Williams

I didn't become a sportswriter until I was 32. But my humble beginnings in 1988 can be rooted in the late 1970s.

It was June of 1979. I was working as a correctional officer at the Guelph Correctional Center - a minimum security, provincial institution in Southern Ontario.

CATS MOST REDEEMED CUP CHAMPION - Blog

CATS STILL MOST REDEEMED CUP CHAMPION OF LAST 30 SEASONS

BY JOHN WILLIAMS

Congratulations to the Montreal Alouettes for winning their second Grey Cup in seven tries during the past decade.

But the class of the CFL over the last 10 seasons certainly had Lady Luck on their side thanks to the Riders’ extra man on the Als’ first game-winning field goal attempt.

But if justice was served based on regular season accomplishment, the 15-3 Als earned their just reward despite nearly falling for the sixth time in seven attempts in the New Millennium.

CATS' ANNIVERSARY COINCIDES WITH BILLS' TO EXPERIMENT - Blog

Posted by John Williams on September 28, 2020 - 3:07am

By JOHN WILLIAMS

The Buffalo Bills bring cap in hand tonight looking for a handout in Toronto for the second straight year. And all this as part of a five-year experiment to boost revenue while determining the feasibility of an NFL team in Toronto on a full-time or occasional basis.

A gauge to determine if the 20,000 or so fans from Southern Ontario who frequent the Ralph represent an even more rabid fan base in the GTA.

But based on fan indifference last year against Miami

- which was spawned by smug marketing and outrageous ticket prices

The Head Coach For Bills In 2015 Should Be… - Story

Posted by radneyj on January 11, 2015 - 8:17pm

A highly intelligent man hailing from Charlotte, NC where he played QB at Howard University should be the Bills next head coach. Pep Hamilton being an ex QB helps him articulate to his QB’s what he wants them to do on the field and he understands what the QB is seeing out on the field from opposing defenses. At just 40 years old he is young enough to vibe with his players and at this point in his career has the cache to have guys respect him. Hamilton has worked with Andrew Luck at Stanford and now with the Indianapolis Colts. Luck paired with Hamilton has brought the Colts success rapidly. The Colts have been to three straight playoff appearances including two division titles in 2013 and 2014. Luck has the most passing yards for a quarterback through his first 4 postseason games (1,438 yards). Hamilton has had tremendous success developing Indy’s passing attack led by Luck. Working with a young QB that has the physical tools like EJ Manuel would astronomically improve Manuel if he was learning to play QB from an ex QB. If the Bills believe in Manuel, they need to bring in a guru who has had success working with a young QB. The defense is in place and already is a playoff caliber D. The offense has weapons and just needs a QB who would not get in the way of the Bills potential success. Bringing in Hamilton would give the Bills the offensive lift they need. He should be the Bills next head coach.
If the Bills were to bring in someone besides Pep Hamilton it should be tough talking Rex Ryan. He would bring the clout the Bills have been lacking. Ryan’s bravado will get the Bills relevant again on a national scene and even though that doesn’t bring you any wins or loses, relevance is important with the Bills. Most people outside of western NY consider the Bills an afterthought franchise. Me living in Charlotte all I hear when I bring up the Bills is “when are they moving to Toronto?” With the character that is Rex Ryan, I guarantee people will know about Buffalo next year hopefully by their play but definitely by Ryan’s mouth. The Bills already have an all-pro 3-4 readymade defense and no matter what you say about Ryan, the man knows defensive football. To be the best you have to beat the best. No one frustrates Tom Brady like Rex Ryan. Back when Ryan was the defensive coordinator of the Ravens he used to make Brady and Co. earn every yard they got. The Jets won some games vs New England and always played them tough under Ryan. If Ryan gets hired he would need to bring in an established offensive coordinator. My choice would be Marc Trestman! Wishful thinking would say the Bills would be able to pull Hamilton from the Colts and add him as the OC under Ryan. That would be a heck of a transaction if that happened but I know Christmas has already come and gone. But miracles happen every day! We will see what transpires.
