Buffalo defensive coordinator 'in awe' of Brees - AFC East - ESPN
"When I watched the tape," defensive coordinator Perry Fewell said, "I thought about that, and I said ‘Wow.’ It was a day that you just kind of were in awe to a large degree because that offense is so efficient, and they are clicking on all cylinders. They do have that [high-powered] offense like the Patriots did two years ago."

Why T.O. hasn’t spoken to the media postgame – Inside The Bills
"I think that with anything I say, it has been kind of misconstrued or taken out of context, so you’re right, it is my prerogative and I’m filling my obligations throughout the course of the week where I talk to the media, so it’s not mandated that I talk to media after the game," said Owens.

Buffalo Bills NFL News Updates - Rapid Reports
- Bills coach Dick Jauron on why the team signed T Jamon Meredith instead of an experienced veteran: "(OL coaches) Sean (Kugler) and Ray (Brown) really liked Meredith in his (pre-draft) workout. Thought he had some upside, had good grades on him coming out."
- New starting Bills RT Jonathan Scott said he's changed his approach since coming over from the lowly Detroit Lions. "I think I probably slacked a little bit (in staying professional and persevering) in Detroit, but coming to a different type of vibe and atmosphere, it definitely opened my eyes."

WGR 550 SportsRadio - Media Day, Wk3
"I've always been pretty confident." Jauron said. "I like those plays (the T.O. reverse, the long passes and the 4th and short). Terrell made a pretty good run to start us off with a kinda big play. The fourth down was so short, I was pretty comfortable going in our end with the sneak. When those plays don't go for you, it's a pretty (bad decision)."

Edwards and the plays he’s made with his legs – Inside The Bills
"It’s a fine line that you have to walk," said Edwards. "There’s a point where you find your checkdowns if there’s nothing downfield, or you run if there’s pressure. If you can find a checkdown and Fred and get those guys the ball you’d rather do that, but there are times to make plays with your legs. Especially if they’re dropping eight guys down the field or if your checkdowns don’t get out that’s when I’m looking to use my legs."

Fred keeping in touch with Marshawn – Inside The Bills
"I call [Marshawn] every day," said Jackson. "He’s been busy doing his thing, staying focused. He’s working out two times a day, so we’ll be excited when we get him back next week."

Reality check for first-time coaches - NFL - Yahoo! Sports
Fred Jackson has the job for at least one more week, while Marshawn Lynch serves the last of his three-game suspension. But Lynch should be relegated to a healthy platoon role until he proves he can be more effective than Jackson, whose versatility has been sensational through the first two weeks of the season.
