As the Buffalo Bills work on trimming their roster down to 75 players, the Bills’ official website announced the release of the following five players Monday: wide receiver Da’Rick Rogers, defensive back Dominique Ellis, cornerback Jumal Rolle, wide receiver DeMarco Sampson and center Ryan Turnley.

The headlining name among the cuts is Rogers. While few deny Rogers’ talent, the wide receiver went undrafted in the 2013 NFL Draft. When the Bills signed Rogers, many thought the team had found a diamond in the rough. At training camp, Rogers flashed his ability from time to time. However, head coach Doug Marrone noted last week that Rogers simply did not show consistency at camp.

The 1982 classic album Combat Rock by The Clash had numerous hits. One of my favorites was the classic song “Should I Stay or Should I Go.” I found myself thinking about this chorus as I walked back to my car following the Buffalo Bills’ 20-16 preseason victory over the Minnesota Vikings on Friday night.

Roster decisions for the Bills coaching staff will be difficult. Coaches may be echoing the chorus of the Clash hit as they try to cut their roster down to 53 men. Many players improved their status with the team on Friday; others did not fare as well.

In our second installment of “5 Up, 5 Down,” we will again look at players who both improved and hurt their status with the Buffalo Bills during the most recent preseason games . With two preseason games left, the roster picture for the Buffalo Bills is starting to become a little clearer.

Sunday night marked the long-awaited return of the AMC television hit Breaking Bad. While the world awaits the fate of Walter White, Buffalo Bills fans received a brief glimpse into their possible 2013 fate on Sunday afternoon in Indianapolis.

A film review of Sunday’s game has given Buffalo their own version of players who decided, in their season debut with the Bills, to “break bad.” In an effort to remain positive, we will also look at some players who broke bad habits and had a positive debut on Sunday.

Our first installment of “5 Up, 5 Down” for the Bills’ 2013 preseason looks at players who helped or hurt their case to make the Buffalo Bills roster and/or earn greater playing time, although I tried to keep my focus on rookies and players on the bubble to make the team.

Final scores are meaningless in the preseason, but Buffalo Bills fans are wishing that wasn’t the case after the team’s 44-20 victory over the Indianapolis Colts, an AFC playoff team last season, in their preseason opener Sunday.

There was a lot to like about the Bills’ preseason opener Sunday. Rookie quarterbacks EJ Manuel and Jeff Tuel combined to complete 35 of 44 passing attempts for 315 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions. In addition to their three passing touchdowns, the Bills also scored touchdowns on defense (interception return by Jumal Rolle) and special teams (kickoff return by Marquise Goodwin).

Manuel, Tuel, Rolle and Goodwin were all among the standouts on Sunday’s first slice of game action for the Buffalo Bills’ 2013 season. Let’s go in-depth and take a closer look at what worked — and a little bit of what didn’t — in the Bills’ impressive preseason outing today.
