Fitz and Bills near extension - The Buffalo News
"According to an NFL.com report, the sides are moving toward agreement on a multiyear deal that will pay Fitzpatrick about $10 million per season. According to the report, the two sides have been talking in earnest since the Sept. 25 win over New England and had hoped to reach a deal this week, but with the Bills on a bye, the players out of town and their facility seemingly closed for the weekend, it appears the earliest it would be announced would be Monday."

"I don’t know," said head coach Chan Gailey. "I think that every year I go through a bye it’s different. You hope you’re rested. You hope that they’re mentally sharp and ready to make a run at this thing. The biggest thing is not to go crazy just because it’s an open week and give them too much where they can’t go out there and execute."

Kent Hull's most memorable play - The Buffalo News
"Here's an excerpt of an interview I did with Kent Hull in 2002. It's his recollection of the Comeback Game on Jan. 3, 1993. Bills 41, Houston Oilers 38 in overtime. The play came with about 10 minutes to go in the third quarter. The Oilers were leading, 35-3. The Bills had driven to the Houston 7 and faced a fourth-and-2 situation."

Offensive line has Fitzpatrick's back - The Buffalo News
"Last season, Fitzpatrick liked "The Amish Rifle," a reference to his shaggy beard. "FitzMagic" is popular. "Ryan and the MisFitz" has been used to describe the entire offense. If the Bills keep protecting Fitzpatrick as they have the first six weeks, "Mr. Clean" may be appropriate."

Ralph Wilson Stadium requires an extensive facelift expected to cost tens of millions in "taxpayer dollars for a project that would be tied to the Buffalo Bills renewing their lease with both state and county governments within two years, The Associated Press has learned."

Bills would be wise to extend Fitzpatrick - AFC East Blog - ESPN
"Although the price tag is steep, extending Fitzpatrick would be a wise move. All teams have to pay a "quarterback premium," which also occurred in deals for quarterbacks Matt Cassel and Kevin Kolb."

Kent Hull Really Was Larger Than Life - 13WHAM.com
"I may not have known Kent Hull, but thanks to many of my colleagues I have been able to find a man that while he seemed like a giant back in the hallways of that high school in my youth, he was in reality, much bigger than I ever thought. And I’ll always have that card to remind me."

Remembering Kent Hull, a Bills Mainstay - NYTimes.com
"In the locker room in Tampa Stadium after losing to the Giants in Super Bowl 25, Hull watched as Scott Norwood, still in his uniform, patiently answered every question and blamed no one but himself. As he was about to leave, Hull went over to Norwood and told him that if everyone, including himself, had done their jobs just a little better, that field-goal attempt would’ve been from a lot closer than 47 yards. Hull then waited for Norwood to shower and dress and, finally, the two teammates walked out together, into the night."

Gentle giant was solid as rock | The Clarion-Ledger
"Solid. That's the one word to best describe Kent Hull. He was solid. Solid as a football player. Solid as a teammate. Solid as a person. Solid as a friend. Solid. Solid as granite."
