    Beware Of Tidy Success Narratives -- In Pharma, And In Life

    On a fateful January day in 1991, 30 year old Scott Norwood took a deep breath and lined up the kick of his life – an opportunity to win Super Bowl XXV for coach Marv Levy and the Buffalo Bills, who were trailing Bill Parcells’ New York Giants 20-19 with eight seconds left in the game. Adam Lingner hiked the ball, Frank Reich spotted it, and Norwood struck it. The kick had the length – 47 yards– but veered perhaps a yard outside the goal post, “wide right” as Al Michaels memorably called it. Predictably, the coverage after the game extolled the Giants – Parcells’ strategy, the team’s execution – and came down hard on Levy’s approach as well as the Bills’ performance.

    Buffalo Bills position battles: Cornerback

    Last season was a disastrous one for the Buffalo Bills defense as a whole, as they failed to improve on their disappointing 2015 campaign, and in many areas, regressed even further.  They allowed three 200-yard rushing games, got torched on primetime by Ryan Fitzpatrick, and allowed over 30 points six times throughout the year. One position that was especially troubling for the Bills was at cornerback.  While Rex Ryan’s scheme isn’t exactly friendly to corners, the struggles that the Bills corners showed went beyond scheme.  Stephon Gilmore, now with New England, was quick to point fingers when things went wrong.  Ronald Darby, who showed so much promise his rookie season, took a major step back,
