Bills show some positive signs | Democrat and Chronicle
"The Buffalo Bills have been among the NFL's most-entertaining teams for their last seven games and that should pay off in the form of season-ticket renewals this offseason. A strong draft and signing a quality free-agent veteran for the defensive front seven would make the loyal fan base even more optimistic. Chan Gailey now is as popular as any first-year coach with a 2-9 record could be."

Return game quandary -
"We’ll see," Gailey said indicating he’ll make the decision later this week. "Leodis is playing a lot of corner right now. He’s playing a lot of defense. He’s earned the right (to return). He’s obviously a great returner, but we’ve got to be smart about how we handle all those guys. Maybe we’re smart with C.J. not putting him out there to run those kind of things the first week back from a hamstring too. There are a lot of things to consider going into this ball game."
