If you have tickets for the Buffalo Bills sold out practice at 6pm tonight you are in for quite a treat. The Bills will be holding a live scrimmage that could include as many as 60 plays, and will feature football with all of the rules and the tackling that goes with it. Marone has indicated that he would like to get in plenty of red zone work and get a good look at the 2 minute drill.
Buffalo has suffered a few minor injuries this past week with Stevie Johnson pulling a hamstring and Kevin Kolb slipping on a wet mat and hurting his knee. Surprising to most though is that Marrone is hopeful that Kolb will be participating in tonight’s live scrimmage. Mario Williams returned to practice on Sunday so it would be nice to see him involved even if it is for just a few plays.
As much as everyone is looking forward to seeing how explosive our offense is looking this year I am more excited about seeing the new defensive schemes prepared by Mike Pettine. I fully expect the defense to make life hell for Kolb/Manuel/Tuel and it will be interesting to see how those three handle the pressure. I cant imagine this thing ending without a handful of sacks, and it should be a legitimate battle on both sides of the ball.
Only time will tell how this whole thing goes down, and lucky for us that is just a few hours hours away. Unfortunately I wont be making it to the practice, but if any of you out there will be attending please come back here and leave in the comments what you saw, and what you thought about it. Go Bills!!
