3-4 unlikely to affect Schobel – Inside The Bills
"If Bills head coach Chan Gailey does in fact choose a 3-4 defensive over a 4-3, it’s not likely to affect Aaron Schobel’s decision on whether to retire or not. That according to the Dallas Morning News. Charean Williams interviewed Schobel who told her that the 3-4 might actually prove to be a better fit for him."

Reviewing the Bills 2009 Draft : Buffalo Sports Daily
"Overall, I like the 2009 draft. It seemed to have brought in quite a bit of talent, and it was evident there was a focus on completely shoring up the interior of the offensive line and the secondary. The defensive back picks were also much better than previous years mainly because they went for ball hawks rather than just raw prospects with too much unrealized potential. Regarding impact, it’s not often you find a rookie Pro-Bowler in the second round. A lot of these players have potential to contribute heavily down the road, including Maybin. My prediction is this draft will be even more valuable to the Bills two years down the road, with a core of good, young talent."

"Dan Reeves coming to the Buffalo Bills? Are the Bills trying to run a southern retirement community for the NFL?.... Enough about fans wanting the Bills to change to a 3-4 defense.

Bills', Raiders' problems start at top - NFL - Yahoo! Sports
"The more league observers study the state of the Bills and the Raiders, the more they realize how similar are the shortcomings that have consistently brought down these two proud-but-flawed AFC franchises in recent years. The inability of Wilson or Davis to entrust good football people to research, evaluate and make the right decisions on their own is what has kept both teams mired in mediocrity."
