Brohm feels he did his best – Inside The Bills
"I like to think I did my best," said Brohm. "Each and every play I went out there and tried to do the right thing. I felt like most of the time I made the right reads. There were a couple of throws I wish I could’ve made better. Other than that I think all the film is going to speak for itself right now and the coaches are going to make the decisions on what they feel is best for the team."

Hardy’s big play wiped out – Inside The Bills

Season Previews
Agree? Disagree? It's my AFC East preview - AFC East Blog - ESPN

"4. Buffalo Bills: The Bills were competitive in division games last season, nearly shocking the Patriots on opening night and splitting with the Jets and Dolphins. But they're 2-10 against the division the past two seasons. While the Bills are rebuilding, the other teams made offseason moves to push for the playoffs, making the gap even wider for this season." | Buffalo, NY | Buffalo Bills 2010 Season Preview

How low will the Bills go? - Hornell, NY - Hornell Evening Tribune
"They could go 2-14 or 8-8. The offensive line should be a little better and the idea of going to a 3-4 defense is intriguing even though they don’t really have the players to make it work the way it should, but their running game could be a strength and maybe Gailey will have the tools to get something out of Edwards."
