For the Buffalo Bills and the Buffalo Sabres One Buffalo is a reality. They have one Owner and One President; they also have one fan base. The issue here is some fans are starting to wonder how it is that the Sabres are left with no real goaltender after two years in the basement and the Bills have no proven QB after 15 years of crap play.
I do not doubt that the Pegula’s are aiming for a strong product but I am questing how they are combining the two franchises. Let’s look at how “well” the Sabres have done while under Pegula’s umbrella…. Oh- yeah, never mind, now one year into the Bills ownership and we have a mess on our hands.
At this point I can’t help but say the Pegula’s prosper while One Buffalo fans suffer. Yes, in the long run suffering in sports is worth it, but this is just torture. Bills and now for a lesser part Sabres fans have been the butt of NFL and NHL jokes for years, and there are only so many times you can get off the mat. Sure, all it will take is a few wins and things calm down, but the underlining issue here is that One Buffalo’s one owner may have too many teams under his umbrella, and someone will always get wet.
They say time heals all wounds, and let’s hope so because by the time Buffalo has two strong competitive teams the city is going to need a trauma ward to fix the year’s mental troubles the teams have caused.
As both the Buffalo Sabres and Buffalo Bills season move along it seems all we can do is hang our hats on the fact that this too shall pass. The Sabres will hit an upswing most likely next season, and the bumbling Bills, well at this point it’s anyone’s guess.

Even with talent the #Sabres could still be in the mix for a top five draft pick and that’s an okay thing.
It takes more then a season to shake losing for the teams DNA. Players need to lean how to play with talented players and the fans need to relax.
There is a big difference between this season and the past two. At least Buffalo has been in games this year.
Winning come from developing and that will come in the back half of the season when these players have 60 games in blue and gold and have learned to Titus each other.
Just think if the Sabres are a lottery team. There will be yet another highly talented player coming to Buffalo.
So… back away from the edge… don’t go to the dark side and make sure to relax. This too shall pass.

The Buffalo Bills made the trip to London, but their talent stayed in WNY. With playoff hopes on the line the Buffalo Bills showed they are no better than last season. Injuries aside the Bills have no QB with any winning on his resume, they have yet to figure out how to get off to a fast start and they are still taking way too many penalties.
Its great that Rex Ryan can run his mouth about a building a bully, but his defense has not been tearing it up. His players have gone public complaining about how he has things set up, and now this…
It’s one thing to lose a game, but its completely another problem to lose the way Buffalo did. It shows a general lack of readiness. It seems that fans of the Bills will only have hope to hold on to going into the by week. Unless the Buffalo Bills can circle the wagon all they will do this season is once again circle the drain.
Last night the Buffalo Bills took the first step in a rebuild. With the 16 pick in the 2013 NFL Draft the Bills selected E.J. Manuel. QB Florida State. Manuel is 6’5 237 pounds and is able to play the read option. During his time with Florida State Manuel had a senior year record of 12-2.
The Bills have not had a NFL quality QB for over a decade. The last top QB the Bills had was Jim Kelly, and Bills fans remember how well that turned out. I’m not saying Manuel will have success like Kelly did, but the prospect of the Bills being a fraction as good has this city buzzing.
If the Bills want this to work Manuel needs to hold a clip board for at least some of the coming season. The Bills traded for Kevin Kolb, and they should allow him to play at least until Manuel get a feel for the NFL game. There has been a trend in recent years for a first round QB to start right out of the gate, but I don’t believe Manuel to be NFL ready yet.
With time and work, the Bills may just circle the wagons yet again. The fan base is ready, the city is ready, and for once the Bills seem to understand they need to reload. As this new chapter of Bills football unfolds; fans around here cross their fingers,and hope their suffering is over.
Its all over for the Buffalo Sabres, After a disappointing year their playoff hops have been shot down. Check out my thoughts here: http://toomanymenonthesite.com/2013/04/22/buffalo-sabres-fall-short-but-theres-hope/

The Buffalo Sabres have 60 minutes to keep their playoff hope alive. If they are unable to beat the New York Rangers, its over. Buffalo made their bed and only they can save this season. If the Sabres don’t come out working and show heart, it will be over . This year will be the year that Ruff got fired and nothing else. One thing that a bad year allows for is a chance for the young kids from Rochester to show what they can do. Hopefully the farm is able to handle the end of the year tryout. It’s been a hard few years for Sabres fans. The team and front office own them a big We Are Sorry. Hopefully next year the Sabre remember how to play hockey. Because this year I think they forgot the lock out was over.
