Observations from Orchard Park

I could do a whole post on Brandon Marshall’s latest escapes, but why bother? It’s safe to say at this point the guy’s an idiot. An extremely talented one, but he’s an idiot just the same. I don’t blame anyone for passing on him in drafts this year because you have to think a suspension is either looming based on his latest news and history or that one is on the horizon and likely to happen based on this off-season’s events.

Today I wanted to catch up on a post I’ve been meaning to write up since last month.

When I went to Buffalo to interview Marshawn Lynch, I was able to stand and watch their practice for about 90 minutes, and I had some observations.

  • The Prince Connection: Rodgers and Nelson July 7, 2014
