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.

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.
