The Good Point - Bills safe in Buffalo, but for how long?
"The Buffalo Bills are regularly rumored to be on the move. Is relocation in the cards? The two most commons cities suggested are Los Angeles and Toronto." Matt Warren's opinions are featured in this article.

2011 will be Chandler's best shot yet -
"After being a fourth-round draft choice in 2007, he’s lost a season to injury and bounced around from one NFL practice squad to another. It wasn’t until his 12th career game late last season that he made his first NFL reception. Though he was only with the Bills for the final five weeks of the 2010 campaign, Scott Chandler will enter the 2011 season with perhaps his best chance ever to earn a starting tight end role in the NFL with Buffalo."

"Khaled Elsayed of Pro Football Focus unveils the first half of the 2010 team pass protection rankings." The Bills rank 20th - ahead of the Ravens, Eagles, Bears, and Steelers.

Inside The Bills | Pass protection rankings
"It would seem to me that the PFF folks were unaware that though complementary of Bell they did not realize he was coming off microfracture surgery and did not feel back to 100 percent until after the bye week last season. Cordaro Howard was learning on the fly as an undrafted rookie. The comment about the interior makes one wonder about how the center position might shake out from the 2011 season knowing there will be competition there between Geoff Hangartner and Eric Wood."

The first in a series looking at the Bills QBs who have tried to replace Jim Kelly. Some NSFW language.

Wannstedt sends important message at HSPD camp -
"Wannstedt huddled the kids up on the field in the Bills Healthy Zone and discussed the importance of athletes staying on the right track. He told the kids that his coaches were a huge influence on his life."

Wilson Foundation Donates to Roswell Park -
"Bills Executive Vice President of Strategic Planning Mary Owen talks about the The Ralph C. Wilson Foundation joining the "Circle of 10" in donating to the expansion project at the Roswell Park Cancer Institute."

Bills Focus: Reed on Draft Experience -
" recently caught up with former wide receiver Andre Reed to find out about his experience at the 2011 NFL Draft, and how things have changed since he was a rookie in 1985. "

Inside The Bills | 4 wide makes TEs traditional
"The Bills made heavy use of their four wide sets on offense in the second half of last season with the emergence of players like David Nelson, Donald Jones and Naaman Roosevelt, following the season-ending injury to Roscoe Parrish. What that also did was limit the number of opportunities for Buffalo’s tight ends in the passing game, since they weren’t on the field."

What is Terrelle Pryor's NFL supplemental draft stock? - NFL News | FOX Sports on MSN
"Buffalo Bills: While journeyman quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick played fairly well last season, he’s in the final year of his contract. It also remains to be seen if Levi Brown, whom the Bills selected in the seventh round of last year’s draft, has a future with the team. And keep in mind, head coach Chan Gailey likes to develop mobile quarterbacks. He did a nice job of developing former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Kordell Stewart."

Is Buffalo or Miami a good place for Pryor? - ESPN AFC East Blog
"I agree with Caplan about the Bills. They do have a void at backup quarterback and would like to develop one for the future. Brown doesn't seem to be that guy. He wasn't good enough to make the team out of training camp or even be signed to the practice squad. The Bills didn't bring back Brown until they waived Trent Edwards in-season. Last season's primary backup, the disappointing Brian Brohm, is a free agent. "

Bills And Pryor? No, No And No. - WGR 550 SportsRadio
"His decision making is terrible, the timing on his throws are poor, he faced little pressure in the pocket at Ohio State and most his receivers were wide open because of the level of competition they faced. But to his credit, Pryor does posess a very, very good arm and rare athleticism at the quarterback position."

Bills outlook: Gailey's plan must show tangible signs of progress in 2011 - NFL - Sporting News
"The lack of talent was evident in the Bills’ 4-12 record last season. All the holes can’t be filled in one year though, so the outcome of this season will depend on veterans stepping up and recent draft picks living up to expectations. "

Projecting the Raiders offensive line | Thoughts From The Dark Side
"Last year, in the right tackle position, Langston Walker pretty much proved to the world why the Buffalo Bills let him walk after signing him to a lucrative contract. He just looked lazy and slow at times. My wife actually pointed out that they needed a new right tackle during the one half of football she watched last season."
