Bills set with Edwards as starting QB - NFL - Sporting News
"I’ve always thought Edwards had the ability to have success in this league," said analyst Gil Brandt, former longtime Cowboys VP of player personnel. "He just hasn’t been able to stay healthy, going back to college."

Things I think I think - MMQB - Peter King -
"I think those C.J. Spiller highlights make me hope, for the Bills' sake, that he can play more than the part-time role his history says he should play. At Clemson, Spiller rarely lugged it 20 times a game, and with the punishment he'll take in the NFL, it's unrealistic to expect he'll approach that workload. But he's getting a good shot with Marshawn Lynch and Fred Jackson out of the lineup in Buffalo. If he could have 225 injury-free touches this year, Buffalo fans should be grateful."

Bills-Bengals: Instant Thoughts | | Blogs

"Overall, I’m still not adding to the 5-6 wins I expect from the Bills. But I think that Gailey will get the most out of what he has, which means there will be a few upsets and games won by coaching. The talent isn’t there yet, but when it is, it should be fun to watch."

Bob Matthews | Democrat and Chronicle
"Sure, it would've been nice if the Buffalo Bills had used the No. 9 overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft on the best available offensive tackle or defensive end, but how many Bills faithful still think taking running back C.J. Spiller was a luxury the team couldn't afford?"
