"Honestly, if you came in at halftime, you wouldn't have known if he threw four touchdowns or two picks," said center Geoff Hangartner. "He's a great competitor. And he's a great guy to be in the huddle with, because he doesn't get down on himself, and he doesn't get down on other guys. That's what we love about him."

Sal's musings: Bills are easy to root for | Democrat and Chronicle
"No one can argue that the Bills lack talent in several areas, but there isn't a team in the NFL that fights harder, or refuses to quit, than the Bills. They are an easy team to root for, and part of that comes from Chan Gailey, who is an easy guy to pull for, too."

A quick look back at yesterday's win.

Reaction: Bills 49 - Bengals 31 - WGR 550 SportsRadio
Joe Buscaglia's thoughts on the game. "The Bills showed a lot of heart and grit in their comeback win on the road. This team is coming along, and a lot quicker than expected. Good for the Bills. Forget about the number one pick, guys. Carolina's got that locked up. But be happy that you have a team that will compete week in and week out. Good job, Chan Gailey."

HAMILTON: WOW!!!! - WGR 550 SportsRadio
"I just so much enjoy this team and it's such a shame there isn't more talent on it. The attitude and drive that Chan Gailey has instilled in players that just wilted under Dick Jauron is amazing. The malaise that Jauron preached is so long gone."

Bengals melt down, 49-31 - Bengals.com
"In one of the greatest meltdowns in their history Sunday at Paul Brown Stadium, the Bengals allowed 28 unanswered points in a nightmarish 14:07 stretch during Buffalo’s 35-0 second half that saw a 31-14 halftime lead evaporate into a numbing 49-31 loss."

"I’ve been teetering on the verge of saying this for weeks, since saying plainly that the Bills are not the worst team in football and will not be drafting No. 1 overall, and today the words come out: I love this Buffalo Bills team."

SCOTT PITONIAK: Fitzpatrick Looks Good as Bills Earn 2nd Win of 2010 - RochesterHomePage.net
"He hasn’t stopped me from longing for Stanford University’s Andrew Luck, but Ryan Fitzpatrick is growing on me. And I’m starting to wonder at least a little bit if the bearded, brainy, hard-nosed Harvard guy might be the answer to the Bills quarterback woes beyond this lost season."

Stevie Johnson plays the joker role well | ProFootballTalk
"Johnson is sure to get fined for the stunt, but he probably considers it worth the money to help make a name for himself. His play on the field has done most of the work. Johnson had three touchdowns on Sunday, giving him nine touchdowns and 728 yards for the season."
