OK, quarterback isn't exactly "on" the docket for this week, seeing as a decision has already been made, but the Bills' official site is still reporting on the Trent Edwards decision. Today, the article outlines how Dick Jauron went about making the decision; here's a snippet:
It's an interesting read, though it likely won't change anyone's opinions out there - even with the good quotes from Marv Levy factored in.
Kevin Everett, in issuing his first public statements since suffering a catastrophic spinal cord injury on Opening Day, made my day yesterday with his message:
We've said it before, but it bears repeating: this story is, simply put, miraculous. Congratulations, Kevin - keep up the good fight, sir. We're still pulling for you.
Reports surfaced today that the Bills may be interested in playing in Toronto - one pre-season game in 2008 and one regular season game in 2009, that is.
The Bills hope to play a preseason game at Toronto next summer, with plans to play a regular-season game as early as 2009. The games would be played at Rogers Center, a downtown stadium with a retractable roof that serves as home to baseball's Blue Jays and the Canadian Football League Argonauts.
Personally, I love this idea. Contrary to Rumblings user "thejamootz" (who provided some insightful thoughts while breaking the story here), I don't see this development as a future precursor to a permanent move to Toronto at all. In fact, it speaks volumes that the team came right out and said it wasn't a precursor - they seemed to sense that exact reaction forthcoming. If the Bills can milk a significant chunk of revenue out of the Canadian market, it will really help keep this team in Buffalo for longer than its current 5-year contract with Erie County may dictate. Stay tuned - this is a very, very interesting initiative by the Bills.
Be sure to check back into the site later on this evening - I'm working on a breakdown of the Baltimore Ravens; I hope it satisfies your football thirst after a week of politics within this organization.
