No, that's Butch. We are FB friends and he wins lots of bodybuilding competitions.

I think he must still hold the record for consecutive TD receptions.  I thought Jake Fisher would be good at the Butch Rolle route, he should teach him that.

Butch was at our annual tailgate at Jimmy's Old Town Tavern in Herndon, VA.  

He seems like a really nice guy.

I asked him if he had any interest in coaching and he said "no, want to spend time with my family".

"Who is Butch Rolle?" the kids ask, as they quickly Google his name.  Ah, sometimes it feels good to be old.

Post NFL he was known for body building.  A coworker was talking about him and I mentioned he was a Buffalo Bill. His response: "He played football?"

I wouldn't worry about any suspensions. He has a solid natural physique. Rolle that is. I'm hoping Knox is a great find, he has very good ability

No, I said he played with Jim Kelly and he said "oh".

He was my first favorite Bill when I was a kid! Well, maybe second after Robb Riddick!

Knox is said to be a real gym rat/workout freak.  Maybe Rolle can give him some tips on how to be as efficient as possible.

He must have invested well.

I loved Butchie but I hope Knox aspires be a little better than a one-dimensional blocking TE who catches goal line TD’s as a novelty.  

 

I remember when the Bills rested their starters during Week 17 of the 1990 season to play Detroit.  His consecutive reception to TD streak was broken because the team actually played him in non-goal line situations

What is he teaching him?  I suppose he does have a good Reception to TD ratio.

 

Games = 124

 

Receptions = 38

 

Yards = 213

 

TDs = 11

I would assume he being taught how to reshape his body.

Hope Butch teaches him the fake block on the line of scrimmage at the goal line play,  roll unimpeded into the end zone, stand up and have the QB (Kelly) throw you a td pass. It worked even when the other team looked for it.
