Bills Need QB - But Not in 1st Round | WGRZ.com
Ed Kilgore doesn't like the idea of Michael Vick in Buffalo and he hopes Trent Edwards gets another shot at being the QB. He also looks at the holes at offensive and defensive tackle spots and thinks the Bills should address those early then go after a Dan LeFevour or Tim Tebow in the draft.

John Clayton's Mailbag | ESPN.com
"What I'm puzzled about more than anything is the [Bills'] decision to go to a 3-4 defense. No doubt the Bills have been pulverized when they play 3-4 defenses, and that's a big problem because three AFC East teams play the 3-4. But making the switch only adds to their needs." He goes on to say he thinks too many teams are switching to the 3-4 than the available personnel can support.
