Bills Name Five Captains. Also, Having Five “Captains” Is Dumb

September 6, 2017By Patrick Moran

Last season, former Buffalo Bills head coach/fancy pants Rex Ryan rotated his team captains weekly because I’m assuming he thought it would motivate different guys and perhaps get into opponents’ heads (it didn’t). This year current head coach Sean McDermott isn’t playing any games.  He named his five captains today—and it’s worth noting that having … Read More

Hot Taekery: Bills Fans Tossing Taylor Under Bus

September 5, 2017By Patrick Moran

I like Tyrod Taylor, I really do. I don’t particularly think he’s the quarterback that can lead the Buffalo Bills out of their 17-year (who we kidding—let’s go ahead and call it 18 now) playoff drought, but I like him nonetheless. I won’t recite his statistics and record as the Buffalo starter because it really … Read More

That wasn’t limited to … Read More

Favorite 100 Songs of the 80s: (#4) Lionel Richie – Hello

August 15, 2017By Patrick Moran

As a youth Lionel Richie was tremendously timid. A blurb from explains a young Richie.  “When he was young, Richie watched beautiful women walk past but was too shy to talk to them. He thought to himself, “Hello, is it me you’re looking for.” Man, I don’t know about all that. Richie may have … Read More

Favorite 100 Songs of the 80s: (#8) Bryan Adams – Heaven

August 9, 2017By Patrick Moran

I can already sense the skeptics chirping. “If you had to put a Bryan Adams song in your countdown and especially in the Top 10, why the hell did you pick Heaven?”  I readily admit there’s a handful of Adams tunes more universally appreciated that better stood the test of time.  Summer of ’69, Everything … Read More
