Scott Pitoniak: It's time for Bills to force the issue and go deep
"I've grown tired listening to Trent Edwards and Lee Evans and Dick Jauron and everybody else at One Bills Drive drone on about the limited number of opportunities they've had to throw the ball deep. Hey, sometimes you have to make your own opportunities and do the dictating rather than allowing the defense to dictate what you do."

OT Scott is Bell’s likely replacement – Inside The Bills
"Even though veteran Kirk Chambers stepped in for Demetrius Bell when he injured his groin in last week’s game, RT Jonathan Scott is technically the team’s swing tackle. So if Bell, who did not practice Wednesday, cannot go Sunday in Miami, it’s likely that Scott will man the blind side with Chambers at right tackle."

Bills will attack Dolphins : The Buffalo News
The Dolphins have been giving up long pass plays like waves hitting the beach the past two weeks. The Bills had all kinds of trouble getting the ball to wideouts Lee Evans and Terrell Owens in two of their first three games.

Nic Harris at safety not a bad idea – Inside The Bills
I don’t know if there’s a way to do it, but if they can get Harris on the field in some obvious run situations, at 6′2″ 232 I like him in the run front a lot to help neutralize the Wildcat attack. Harris can run and hit and the Dolphins are a smash mouth attack. With his safety background he’s also capable to covering a tight end. He’d almost be like a fourth linebacker out there.

Terrell Owens Special
BillBoard: T.O. plugging away

The transcript from Owens press conference.

T.O tries to keep it low key | democratandchronicle.com | Democrat and Chronicle
"Guys, all I can say is that I’m working hard, we’re working hard as a team, and I have to make the best of the opportunities that come my way," Owens said. "I don’t know (why teams have been able to take him away). You guys see the game, I can only do what I can do."

T.O. was told that post-game interviews are mandatory | ProFootballTalk.com
Apparently Greg Aiello, the league's spokesperson, had to spell it out to T.O. that in his contract he is required to talk to the media if requested.

T.O. says he's in a "no-win situation" | ProFootballTalk.com
"Bills receiver Terrell Owens continues to bemoan his new reality. And, for a change, we agree with him as to its existence, even if we disagree with him as to its cause."

Why leadership is tricky for Owens – Inside The Bills
"It is very frustrating because I think that some of the guys and the coaches want to me step up and be more vocal and say things as a leader," said Owens. "I feel like sometimes I try to do that, try to say things in a subtle way without being harsh, but other outlets are taking those quotes, making them headlines and making them more of an issue than they really are."
