Buffalo Bills news, 6/24: C.J. Spiller is unstoppable

Bills fans spend more time complaining about things related to C.J. Spiller than praising him, but Gil Brandt (hopefully) changed that a bit yesterday. Also inside: '90s week continues with several videos and articles about Jim Kelly and the Super Bowl glory years.

( Pegula's interest in Buffalo Bills concerns Northern bidders
Bob Koshinski reports that the Rogers family, worth over $7 billion, were confident they could produce a winning bid for the Bills despite their interest in moving the franchise to Toronto - until Terry Pegula got involved, that is.

(Buffalo News) Bills look to move the chains more
Jay Skurski's feature on keeping four running backs happy focuses on the selflessness of those backs, the team's need to get much better on third down conversions, and features quotes from Hackett, C.J. Spiller and Bryce Brown.

( Marshawn Lynch, Dez Bryant among 11 unstoppable players
Gil Brandt lists Spiller among five "unstoppable" running backs in the NFL, saying that his explosiveness is "reminiscent of Marshall Faulk in his prime," and praising not just his production, but his lateral agility and his receiving ability.

(Democrat & Chronicle) C.J. Spiller to sign autographs at Eastview Mall
If you're going to be at Eastview Mall in Victor this evening, you may have a chance to snag an autograph from Mr. Spiller. He'll be there from 6-7:30.

(Shutdown Corner) Former five-star recruit Seantrel Henderson taking advantage of opportunity in Buffalo
Well, no, Seantrel Henderson isn't going to win a starting job for the Bills. But sure, if he stays on this trajectory, he has an excellent chance of making the team. Here is Kristian Dyer's profile.

( Buffalo Bills bubble watch: Jeff Tuel
Mike Rodak echoes some of the sentiments coming from Chris Brown about Jeff Tuel's strong spring showing. If this rhetoric keeps up, there's no way the Bills would risk losing Tuel, right?

( Camp Countdown: 4 areas where coaching adds will help most
The bit about scheme is a bit ambitious - with all due respect to Jim Schwartz, Mike Pettine runs the best defensive scheme in the NFL, so any move away from that is a downgrade - but there are other good points made here.

( Spikes: Pepper will boost D-line performance
Brandon Spikes takes another opportunity to talk up Pepper Johnson, his position coach in New England and now the Bills' defensive line coach.

(The Phinsider) Dolphins injuries starting to multiply: Mike Pouncey, Knowshon Moreno undergoing surgery
Miami center Mike Pouncey had surgery to correct a torn labrum in his hip, which could cost him three months of recovery time. That means he could very well miss Buffalo's home opener against Miami in Week 2, on September 14.

(Baltimore Beatdown) Veteran depth at corner is just what the Ravens needed prior to training camp
Ravens fans are talking about how Baltimore will be replacing Corey Graham, and they seem convinced that it'll be a downgrade regardless of who wins the job.

( On the Road at NOCO Express – JMS 6/23
Fred Jackson and Luke Tasker (yes, that's Steve's son, and he's a receiver in the CFL) were guests on Monday's edition of The John Murphy Show.

'90s week

( Jan. 20, 1991: AFC Championship vs. Raiders
Good gravy, this was a thrashing. I watched this video twice.

( 1990: Three straight come from behind victories
In Weeks 4-6 of the 1990 season, the Bills reeled off three straight come-from-behind victories at home to start 5-1, en route to a 13-3 finish and their first Super Bowl appearance. Hey: Steve Tasker was a special player, by the way.

( Jim Kelly highlights
It's amazing to me that someone thought to try to condense a Hall of Fame career into a three-minute video. I'd have watched a video ten times that duration.

( Jim Kelly's Hall of Fame enshrinement speech
This will never not give me chills - particularly at the moment where he addresses his son, Hunter.

( 9 of the best games from Jim Kelly's career
Obviously, this is another fun read. Pretty bummed I missed that October 21, 1991 Monday Night Football win; that was the night of my sixth birthday, and I had undoubtedly been ushered off to bed against my will.
