What a change in mindset this Sabres team and fans have had sense the start of this series. After game 1, the Buffalo Sabres held the momentum of this series in their hands, but sense they have given that up to the Boston Bruins, or should I say the Bruins have taken it from them. The physical play of the Boston Bruins has been the deciding factor in a close series. Boychucks hit on Matt Ellis in game 3 was the prime example of how the Bruins are beating up the Sabres. With the loss of Thomas Vanek and Yokin Heacht, the sabres offense has been boring at best and the total domination on the physical side of things, Lyndy Ruff and the Sabres have an up hill climb if they want to swing the momentum in this series. But good news... they are only one game back in a best of seven series. If the Sabres could pull out a win in game 4, they would have the series tied at two, and making it a best of three, with two games at home in Buffalo. But, if this Sabres hockey team doe not pull out a win, they are looking at a tough, if not impossible hill to climb. Down three to one, even if they are headed home would be a very hard task to overcome. With that said, Lyndy Ruff has called up 6'1", Cody McCormick, from Portland. He is a player with size who likes to muck it up in the corners, a physical player that the Sabres are oping can give them the spark they need to swing the momentum back in their favor.

It's that time of year again... playoff hockey time. Time to grow your beard! With the matchup of the Buffalo Sabres and Boston Bruins, it has that old Adams Division feel to it. It seems like forever ago, but these two teams used to be bitter rivals, and this first round matchup will help rekindle the hatred between these teams. I would like to speak for every Buffalo sports fan.. we want to embaress a Boston team.. even if it is just the Bruins, its a start. With the Bills busy being the bottom feeders of the NFL, this is the opertunity for the Buffalonians to go Wild.

Ok, I'll admit, I was dissapointed at first when I heard that Mcnabb was traded to Washington. But, atfter I took a second to think about it, I think this could be a better move. By The Washington Redskins Taking Donnavin McNabb, that means they will not be drafting another Quarterback with thier first round pick, moving Buffalo into prime posision to get a real good quarterback in the signal caller from Notre Dame, Jimmy Clauson. And don't forget about Jason Cambell. There is no doubt that its got to be aquard for Cambell. I think the Redskins will move him before the draft to get a pick, if not before than the day of the draft. Buffalo has been rumored to be interested in Cambell, and If the Bills could get Cambell to mentor Clauson for the first year and than turn the offence over to the Notre Dame grad in year two, than that could give Jimmy Clauson the time to ease into the NFL and learn the system. This would mean that it could be the end of Trent Edwards time as Qb for the Bills, there would be just too many qb's and he had been given his chance to shine. Also with a new coaching staff in Buffalo, Chan Galey will most likly want somebody new to be "his guy"

Why is it not a done deal? What has Donivan Mcnabb done in the last year to make you wonder if he's not a second round pick?? The rumor is the Eagles are shopping Mcnabb for a high second roung pick....this makes Buffalo in prime posision for an acuall starter playing the posision of Quarterback. I personally think that if the Bills can walk away from draft day with a first round pick for a starting lineman, and the second round we trade for Donivan Mcnabb. That could turn this team into a playoff team.. Think of that...the Bills and playoffs. I think that I would even throw in a player as well, I dont know about Marshawn Lynch, that would be too much in my oppinion. Im just crossing my fingers..Please Ralph Wilson... pull the trigger... change this team into a winner.

I was watching the Blue Jays game the other day when they anounced that Trent Edwards and Lee Evens would be their guest durring the next inning of the baseball game. I was pretty happy to see the Bills offencive core together and showing up at the game, but as the interview went on, all i could think was, this stuff only happens to the Bills.
They started talking about taking batting practice and although Lee Evens wiffed on a few pitches, Trent hit two homers at the Rogers Centre. That made me kinda proud, being the Bills fan that I am, but then the continued the interview and told what happened durring the first pitch of the game.
They brought out Trent Edwards, quarterback of the NFL's Buffalo Bills, to throw the serimonial first pitch. One would think that this man that throws a ball for a living should have no problem with this simple task. But as luck would have it, he threw the ball short and way outside. As a matter of fact, if it wasn't for Vernon Wells making a pretty good move the ball would have made it to the back stop.
I mean, come on man!! this is a task ussually reserved for people that have nothing at all to do with actually playing sports. George Bush did a better job, and nobody wants to have him outdoing you.. I mean look at his record of screwing things up....
Now I'm not really mad or upset or anything. This was just a goof, but it sure makes me laugh.. for now. But, if the football season goes on and he doesn't get this team to the playoffs, this is going to be something that people look back on.
To his defence, he came on the Jim Roam show today and defended himself by kiddingly giving every excuse you could think of, from Veron Wells wasn't the everyday catcher, to he was trying to throw a 4 seam fastball and it just got away from him.
In the end, this really isn't any sort of big deal, but as a Bills fan, just once I would like people outside of Buffalo to think of the Bills and thier player as somthing more than just a joke.
