Quarterback magic has a way of wearing off - Jerry Sullivan
"But he's still the best they have, their best chance to win games in the short term. Fitz put together a terrific 16-game stretch spanning the 2010-11 seasons, throwing 32 TD passes. He developed a strong bond with Chan Gailey and his offensive teammates. It would be foolish to throw that away without a better alternative. Fitz isn't the elite passer he appeared to be in September, but he's better than he showed over the last seven games."

5 Things To Watch In Bills - Broncos - WGR 550

Inside The Bills | Chandler, Stevie probable
"Scott Chandler was limited in practice again on Friday, but is listed as probable. Chandler has missed the last two games with an ankle injury. Stevie Johnson was also listed as probable and assured he would play this week as he has dealt all season with a nagging groin injury."

Inside The Bills | 2 spies for Tebow?
"The spies (with Tebow) are really the two linebackers on either side because you always have to be aware of him keeping the ball after faking the hand-off coming out the back side, so there’s always that spy on him, but you can’t have just one. You’ve got to have them on each side."

Inside The Bills | Fan Friday 12-23
Chris Brown addresses the pass rush, Chan Gailey calling plays, and more in this week's fan question column.

In Tim They Trust - The Buffalo News
"In last week's 41-23 loss to New England, the Patriots played more man-to-man defense in the second half, and Tebow struggled. Receivers did not get open quickly, and it forced Tebow to make tougher throws into smaller windows. Tebow was 6-of-15 passing in the second half and 11 of 22 overall. The Bills may try the same tactics today -- if they can get Denver into passing situations."

Tim Tebow and Denver Broncos take on Buffalo Bills | Democrat and Chronicle
"He just speaks more openly about it, and I have a lot of respect for that because it's tough to do sometimes and he's using his platform wisely with the gifts that he's been given," said Buffalo's Chris Kelsay. "I commend him for that."

Bills in talks to extend deal to play in Toronto beyond 2012 | ProFootballTalk
"Wilson expressed optimism that the deal will get done, and he also offered one piece of information that should be good news for the fans: Ticket prices are likely to be reduced. The Rogers Centre believes filling the stadium has been difficult because Bills tickets, which have averaged $180 a seat, have been too high." - Spiller's value increased, but not as featured back
"We hear that while Spiller has enhanced his value, this stretch has also shown how valuable Jackson, who was hoping for a pay raise this offseason, is to the offense."

Tebow Time: Bills brace for surging Broncos - Yahoo! Sports
"I’ve seen it all in Florida," Nelson said. "He may not be your conventional every day NFL drop-back quarterback. But he’s going to win football games, somehow, some way. He’s wired differently to where the game’s on the line, he believes and he wills his team to victory."

Deconstructing the Bills’ blowup - The Globe and Mail
"For a while, it looked like Christmas Eve at Ralph Wilson Stadium this year would be about the Buffalo Bills chasing down their first playoff berth since 1999, with fans packing the stands."

Nick Barnett is leading tackler for Buffalo Bills - Fontana Herald
"Barnett is enjoying an injury-free season as a linebacker for the Buffalo Bills, and even Buffalo’s recent losses (including a blowout at San Diego) have not diminished his enthusiasm. Barnett said he is having the time of his life with his new team."
