Ryan Fitzpatrick

  The Buffalo Bills announced today that they have signed a multi-year extension with WR Stevie Johnson, ultimately avoiding using the franchise tag on him. The new deal is reportedly worth $36.25 million, including $19.5 million guaranteed over the course of five years. Johnson is set to get $24 million over the first three years of the deal.  Upon signing the new deal, Stevie brought with him a bevy of solid numbers and accolades to the  negotiable table including catching 76 passes for 1,004 yards and seven touchdowns last [...] Continue reading → | , , , , , , , , ,
I'm going to keep this one short, because I pretty much called the New England Patriots' 49-21 victory over the Buffalo Bills down the middle in the 1SKILLZ Gameplan.  In fact, we're just going to go with bulletpoints and italics: *BOTTOM LINE: Fitzpatrick will get off to a big start in New England, but it’s doubtful the Bills offense will generate the points they did in September without some assistance from the Patriots’ offense.  With Brady nursing a bad shoulder but still healthy enough to perform, expect a more conservative approach that will test the Bills ability to play total defense.  Expect records to be broken and for the Patriots to not have to [...] Continue reading → | , , , , , , , , , , , , ,
The holiday season couples many of the things we covet most in life—family, friends, faith, food and football. Christmas reminds us that miracles can happen and that God is always here to light the way in the darkness. It’s also important to remember that it always feels better to give than to receive. On behalf of everyone at GridironGrit.com and NFLTouchdown.com, we hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas (and Happy Hanukkah) and enjoy a Happy New Year! Week 16 was [...] Continue reading → | , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,
NFL.com has opened the voting for the 2011-2012 Pro Bowl this week.  With this said, why not vote for some of the Bills players? Not only are the Buffalo Bills playoff-bound this season, but the team has several stellar players that should be in the conversation for representing the AFC in February. Here are a few key names to remember before you vote. Ryan Fitzpatrick (QB): Not only an intelligent Harvard alum, Fitzpatrick took command of a bottom-feeder team last year and has transformed the franchise into a worthy playoff contender this year.  He currently has the second highest completion percentage (66.3) in the AFC, only behind [...] Continue reading → | , , , , , , , ,
Well this is interesting.  On Sunday, September 25, the 2-0 New England Patriots will travel to Ralph Wilson Stadium to take on the 2-0 Buffalo Bills.  The Patriots haven't lost to the Bills since the 2003 opener, winning 15 straight.  That is currently the longest streak of dominance over one team in the NFL.  The Bills haven't won their first two games since 2008, when they started 4-0 and 5-1.  (This is actually the first time the Patriots have been 2-0 since 2008 as well.)  Is this their year to get a huge jump on the AFC East? The last time the Patriots and Bills met was in the penultimate game of the 2010 season.  The Bills were smashed 34-3 in Buffalo, as the Patriots rushed for 217 yards and forced SEVEN turnovers.  The two teams also met on the third week of the season [...] Continue reading → | , , , , , , , , ,
With the 2011 NFL Preseason well underway, I thought it would be fun to skip ahead a few chapters and orchestrate an early comprehensive preview of the 2011 NFL regular season with record predictions for all 32 teams.  I’m going way beyond your typical predictions. While most that cover this engaging and highly-debatable topic possess extensive knowledge and realistic expectations for the entire league, they don’t actually objectively gauge every single game on the schedule and come up with the correct win-loss ratio for the NFL—256-256. Additional Ingredients: Game-By-Game predictions for all 32 teams, and it wouldn’t be complete without bold surprises.  Some might make you laugh, scream, perhaps throw up, or even cause you [...] Continue reading → | , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,
Now is as good as time as any for Bills quarterback, Ryan Fitzpatrick to step up and be the leader of not only the offense but, the whole team. Although uncertainties still remain with both Fitzpatrick being the starter for the Bills next season and whether or not there will be a NFL season, Fitzpatrick has begun orchestrating team workouts from Arizona to New York. Since becoming the starter last year after game three, Fitzpatrick finished the season with 3,000 yards and 23 [...] Continue reading → | , , , , , , ,

First, I am back on the east coast!  The weather is terrible in Philadelphia though, as you see with the Minnesota Vikings (bad luck) and Philadelphia Eagles postponed until Tuesday night.  Yes, Thursday Night Football, Saturday Night Football, Sunday football (no caps), Monday Night Football, and now Tuesday Night Football.  It's the holiday season, and someone needs to play during Ujima.
