I had the same thoughts on Naaman for the exact same reasons. I thought for sure he would make a great #4 for a team. Such consistent ability. And this year with the Bills having their QB troubles, I was hoping they'd give Willy a shot... but Willy seriously suffers from Pennington arm, so I'm not surprised that he couldn't cut it at the NFL level.

There are a few other UB guys 'round these parts. I know for certain that Guess What is a current UB student.


I was at that game. I actually traveled to Toronto to go to their bowl game that year.

Willy was the weak link there. Like you said, arm strength was always a problem for him.

Great to hear about some other young players, that program needs to grow.

Go Bulls!
