This past draft had a different feel to it, most likely because it was the XCFL's Legend draft. Of course, the Falcons had the #1 overall pick and didn't know any of these legends. I had a feeling the top player in the draft was Berry Brooks but we didn't really need a reciever, we had just taken Josh Hayden a couple years prior with the #1 overall pick, Hayden has developed quiet nicely but his speed has remaind a slow 92.
We needed to focus on our lineb...[ Continue reading ]
Devlin Collins a 25 year old second year linebacker out of Utah, hit the XCFL last year running, he recorded 54 solo tackles, 2 interceptions, and 2 sacks, in route to a steller rookie campaign. But it was the work he did off the field that might have inspired the Buffalo community more.

Barry, who stands 6'2 as opposed to his father who was an atonishing 6'8, has made his mark in college as a blocking tight end. Although he did have five TD's his senior year, he loves the trenches and sea...[ Continue reading ]
We had our bye week
We took on the Jacksonville Jaguars. This game looked ugly on the stat sheet for the Patriots, minus a great game from HB Saquon Barkley. Barkley rushed for 143 yards on only 10 carries and added 3 TDs. QB Justin Boyer had his absolute worst game of the season, only throwing for 170 yards 0 TDs and 2 INTs. The game came down to a game winning FG from kicker William Knowles as time just about expired. Patr...[ Continue reading ]
