Bills QB Tyrod Taylor, C Eric Wood heading to Pro Bowl
Buffalo Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor and center Eric Wood will be heading to Hawaii this week to play in this year’s NFL Pro Bowl.
Taylor and Wood were named as replacements late Sunday evening for a pair of Carolina Panthers Pro Bowl players in quarterback Cam Newton and center Ryan Kalil. Both are going to be busy as they’ve advanced to Super Bowl 50 after Carolina’s win over Arizona in the…
A low hit deprived Ben Roethlisberger owners of a dominant season.
Fortunately, players like Ryan Fitzpatrick, Blake Bortles and Tyrod Taylor were there to rescue some of Big Ben’s savvy owners. But there was still a void that those quality replacements couldn’t fill…..
Offline the cpu DE always plays the handoff on a read option or triple option. Any way to fix this?
When I play online I use a lot of read option, triple option plays out of the pistol. I get a good mix of DE’s playing the QB causing me to hand it off, and DE’s playing the HB causing me to keep it with the QB.I started an offline franchise for fun with a custom QB who’s running abilities I basically maxed out. I noticed right away the cpu DE’s played the handoff 100% of the time causing me to always keep it every time.So then I created another custom QB with the exact same stats as Tyrod Taylor, and still the cpu DE crash the HB every single time.If I use an existing mobile QB like Tyrod, Newton the DE’s are unpredictable, switching between the HB and QB on option plays. But if I use any custom QB with at least 87 speed (I haven’t tried it with slower custom qb) the DE takes the HB 100% of the time.Is there anyway to fix this? I’m playing on all-pro.
I hope you’re getting paid for playing this because these characters are getting PAID! Put the controller down!
The three quarterbacks on Team Rice combined to throw six interceptions in the defeat; Taylor’s three interceptions (half of his total in 14 games as the Bills’ starter in 2015) led the pack, with Derek Carr contributing two and Eli Manning throwing one, as well.
Taylor was the first Bills quarterback to compete in a Pro Bowl since Drew Bledsoe did it in 2002. Bledsoe didn’t fare much better in his appearance as a Bill, completing 9-of-18 passes for 122 yards and an interception.
Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was named the 2016 Pro Bowl MVP; he threw for 164 yards and three touchdowns on just 12 pass attempts to help Team Irvin build their insurmountable lead.
I’ve been intrigued by black quarterbacks for as long as I’ve been a fan of football. For me, the golden age was when I first picked up the sport in the early 2000s and Donovan McNabb and Daunte Culpepper were two of the best players in the game. Today, that space is filled by a handful of other players that you’re sure to see on my fantasy football team every year, such as Russell Wilson, Tyrod…
Tyrod Taylor becomes Bills first Pro Bowl quarterback since 2002
Bills send Tyrod Taylor to the Pro Bowl
The Buffalo Bills have only had 5 Pro Bowl quarterbacks in their entire existence. Tyrod Taylor was name a Pro Bowler today, making him the 6th player to ever be named to the Pro Bowl as a quarterback of the Bills. The last person to do it was Drew Bledsoe in 2002, followed by Doug Flutie in 1998. Jack Kemp was a 6 time Pro Bowler and Jim Kelly was a 5 time Pro Bowler, leaving Daryl Lamonica as the only Pro Bowl quarterback not mentioned.
Taylor in his first season as an NFL starter went 8-6 when he was in the lineup and his six interceptions were a league low among quarterbacks with 10 or more starts this season. Taylor’s 3.33:1 touchdown to interception ratio was seventh-best in the NFL.
He also ranked seventh in the league in passer rating (99.4) and set a franchise record for single-season rushing yards by a quarterback with 568 with four rushing touchdowns.
Eric Wood also made the Pro Bowl as a replacement player.

Jesus is the only way to Salvation
Because the Bills finished with the same 8-8 record as the Atlanta Falcons and the Indianapolis Colts, they will rotate in the draft order through each round. The Bills, having the highest strength of schedule (and therefore, the “most impressive” 8-8 finish), pick after the other two in round one, move up one spot in round two, move up again in round three, then drop back down to their original order position in round four as the rotation starts over again.
Again, the pick numbers for the first three rounds below are set in stone (barring any trades, of course), while the overall pick numbers thereafter will slide down as compensatory picks are handed out.
AP Patriots CB Malcom Butler said Friday that he missed the Pro Bowl due to a sprained knee. Dolphins offensive coordinator Clyde Christenson, who worked with Peyton Manning in Indianapolis, isn’t buying the idea that Sunday will be the Sheriff’s last rodeo. Bills coach Rex Ryan said he’s open to drafting a quarterback, but that he’s not “done with” EJ Manuel, the backup to Tyrod Taylor.…
