Dolphins owner says team’s latest shake-up pays off in draft (Yahoo Sports)

Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross says his latest shake-up of the organization paid off in the draft, including unanimity about the risky decision to take Ole Miss tackle Laremy Tunsil. The Dolphins selected players they had targeted, and benefited from cohesion among their decision-makers lacking in the past, Ross said Saturday. Tunsil became the biggest story of the draft when he fell to Miami hours after a video was posted on his Twitter account showing him wearing a gas mask connected to a bong.

Oakland general manager Reggie McKenzie was schooled in the draft by Ron Wolf during his long tenure in the front office in Green Bay. McKenzie did just that Saturday when he traded up to select Michigan State quarterback Connor Cook with the second pick in the fourth round despite having an established starter in Derek Carr. Cook said he was surprised to end up on a team with a young starter like Carr, thinking he might end up in Dallas instead as the heir apparent to Tony Romo.

The Buffalo Bills filled their most pressing defensive needs early in the NFL draft before adding an intriguing long-term prospect at quarterback on Saturday. ”I’m going to have a tough time believing somebody had a better draft,” Ryan said. The Bills’ immediate focus was to improve a defense that disappointed and underwhelmed in Ryan’s first year on the job.

The Dallas Cowboys finally took a glimpse at a future without Tony Romo while taking a Baylor basketball star who hasn’t played football since he was 13. The final day of the NFL draft was something like the first two for owner and general manager Jerry Jones on Saturday. Put another way: Jones thinks a healthy Romo and receiver Dez Bryant are better than anything else at getting the Cowboys closer to 12-4, the record for his NFC East-winning team two years ago.

Should the Bills “tank” like the Sabres if they can’t get a franchise QB?

When the Pegula’s bought the Sabres back in 2011, they thought the Sabres would be able to win the Stanley Cup within three years, but that didn’t come to fruition as they realized they had did not have the right roster and management to win the cup, so they gutted the team, and purposely tanked for two years in order to get two great players in the draft which would change their franchise…

Inconsistent Bills Need To Build Some Consistency

One thing consistent about the Bills this season is that they have been inconsistent since the start of the season. The Bills have not been able to win two consecutive games in a row so far. Whether it’s been penalties that have hurt the Bills chances, the amount of players that have been injured, or the inconsistent play from a lot of the players, the Bills so far have not met the lofty…

What the hell did we see this past Saturday night?

The third preseason game of the year is usually a good indicator of how good or bad a team will do in the regular season. For years, die-hard Bills fans had the mantra “It’s only preseason…it’s only preseason,” while others shook their heads in disgust saying “oh great, here we go again, another crappy season!” Over the past fifteen years, the Bills were usually eliminated from the playoffs…

Are the Bills in QB “hell” ?

Bills GM Doug Whaley said the Bills are in “QB Purgatory”. Unfortunately as the season pans out, there may be a possibility that they could be someplace else, someplace much worse.
Entering into the third preseason game Coach Rex Ryan called the QB race even, that surprisingly all three have played at a high level.
While some teams may consider this a nice problem to have, the flip side says…

Bills QB competition down to two?

It seems like one of the three Bills QB’s is falling out of the QB competition. Third year QB, EJ Manuel, for a second week in a row has not seen any reps with the starting unit. The last time Manuel had reps with the one’s was in the Bills Blue and White scrimmage. Since then, veteran QB Matt Cassel took a majority of the reps with the one’s as he was named the starter for the first preseason…

Will the real Bills QB please stand up?!

This offseason, the Bills brought in free agent QB Tyrod Taylor and traded with the Minnesota Vikings for Matt Cassel to compete with E.J. Manuel for the starting Bills QB position. So far, nobody has separated themselves from each other as each QB has struggled with consistency. In Saturday’s scrimmage, Manuel looked the best out of the three QB’s followed by Taylor and Cassel. In today’s…

Is the “Flutie Curse” over with?

In January 2000, then Buffalo Bills owner, Ralph Wilson, made the call to then Bills HC Wade Phillips to have Rob Johnson become the starting QB for the Bills in the playoffs after he saw Johnson play well in a meaningless game 16 for the Bills. Former starting Bills QB, Doug Flutie was told by Phillips that he was only being benched for game 16 so he was rested for the playoffs, only to have the…
