Thoughts on Steve Johnson's tweet - AFC East Blog - ESPN
Tim Graham presents the best perspective of Stevie Johnson's tweets that I've read. Must read.

Cris Carter sounds off on Stevie - BillBoard - The Buffalo News
"Carter suggested on ESPN Radio's Mike and Mike in the Morning on Monday that Johnson's miscues (he had five drops in the game) were tied to him spending too much time basking in the glory of all the national media attention he received last week."

Chan Gailey Monday Update (10:19) - BuffaloBills.com
"The Bills head coach talks with the media about Steve Johnson, the play of Alex Carrington, the return of C.J. Spiller and Spencer Johnson, and the injuries to Dwan Edwards and Terrence McGee."

Defense hangs tough, provides pressure - BuffaloBills.com
"Buffalo’s defense rebounded from two long first-half scoring drives by the Steelers to rally from a 13-0 halftime deficit allowing just three second half points. The Bills registered a season-high five sacks but ultimately fell short in overtime, 19-16."

Inside The Bills | Spiller back this week
"C.J. will be back this week," said Gailey.

Inside The Bills | Spencer back Sunday
"Bills DE Spencer Johnson will return from a hamstring injury that’s forced him to miss the past two games. Being back for this game will hold a little extra meaning for the veteran defensive lineman. Johnson got his start in the NFL as an undrafted rookie with the Minnesota Vikings and played his way onto the roster. Now he’ll face that Vikings team, which still has a lot of familiar faces."

"He’s not doing well," said Gailey. "It’s going to be a while. I don’t know how long a while will be so don’t ask me, but it’ll be longer than shorter." Coach thinks it'll be "close" for Edwards on IR.

Inside The Bills | Lee on Stevie
"Part of it is embarrassment," said Evans. "It’s definitely something to learn from. But the bottom line is it either makes you a better player or it doesn’t. I think he’ll be better for it."

Johnson: I did not blame God - Bills & NFL - The Buffalo News
"I think the best way to get somebody's spirits up is to continue to give them a chance to make plays. I have 100 percent confidence in him. I think everybody else on this team has 100 percent confidence in him," Fitzpatrick said. "It's happened to all of us. I've thrown plenty of bad interceptions at the end of the game and didn't make plays that I thought I should have. So, it happens to all of us. You just have to move on. It's part of the game and you just have to know that everybody has your back in the locker room."

Evans isn't performing like a number one - Jerry Sullivan - The Buffalo News
Jerry Sullivan gives a bunch of quick hits.

Pats' game plan showed the way - Bills & NFL - The Buffalo News
"In a 39-26 win, the Patriots used a lot of four and five-receiver formations that spread the Steelers' defense out and neutralized the pass rush with short, quick throws. The Bills took a page out of the same book on Sunday. Despite a 19-16 loss, the Bills gave future Steelers opponents a look at how to beat them."

Thurman Thomas Weighs In On Steve Johnson's Postgame Tweet - WGR 550 SportsRadio
"I don't blame God for the mistakes I made. I chose to make those mistakes in my own. But I’ve learned from those mistakes and I believe that those mistakes have gotten me closer to God, closer to my faith because now I'm in a situation and it at a point in my life where you don't want. I pray every day. And I’m thankful for the thing is that I've done and all the things that I have from. It is because of him. Stevie is going to catch lot of flak for it and I'm sure he is already. We all question God on why things happen. At some point and time in our lives, we all question why me God."

Buffalo Bills were great in OT, before this season | Democrat and Chronicle
"Entering this season, Buffalo was the NFL's second-best team in overtime, with an 18-9 (.667) record from 1974 through 2009. The only team with a better winning percentage in OT was Jacksonville (.700; 7-3 record)."

"We hope to make a positive impact on the quality of people's lives today, particularly during a time of so much need," he said. "Kaleida Health gives us the opportunity, and we look forward to a great partnership with them."

Steve Johnson tries to get right with God | ProFootballTalk
"We’ll leave it to the folks in the crowd with common sense to assess Johnson’s words, and his meaning. The possible lesson? Prayer is best left between the person sending it, and the entity receiving it."

Week 12 Monday 10-pack | ProFootballTalk
"In many respects, it’s easier to stomach a blowout than a narrow loss. The Bills have a belly full of close calls, and their loyal fans have to be feeling even sicker than they have in recent years. The only thing worse than being bad is being highly competitive and yet still unsuccessful, and that’s precisely what the Bills have been for most of the season."
