Giants lead charge of ex-Bills coaches in playoffs - Jerry Sullivan

Gregg Williams had a big day as New Orleans' defensive coordinator as the Saints beat the Lions on Saturday (with Jabari Greer picking off two passes).

County needs NFL expert in lease talks - The Buffalo News
"To truly protect taxpayer backs in this deal, the county needs to bring in a sports economist who knows the lay of the NFL land. It needs a hired gun familiar with recent or pending deals in, among other places, Jacksonville, Minnesota and Cincinnati. It needs someone who knows the pecking order of cities that covet teams and how to best tie the Bills to Buffalo. The people sitting with Ralph Wilson will know every rut and rock of that landscape."

Inside The Bills | Could be Reed’s year
"Only Reed advanced in the reduction to 10, before eventually being eliminated in the next round from 10 to 5. With no shoo-ins like Emmitt Smith or Jerry Rice in this year’s finalist group as there have been the past couple of years, Reed’s best chance is probably this year." news: Bills' Jackson wants to hold onto featured back role over Spiller
"He's (Bills coach Chan Gailey) definitely got some thinking to do," Jackson told the Buffalo News. "You know that's what he does. He's an offensive-minded guy, so it'll be interesting to see what he does. ... I expect to go back to playing the way I was. We'll see. (Spiller) made plays. He's a playmaker, without a doubt. But I also felt like I did enough to show what I'm capable of doing."

Johnson's status is Bills' top offseason topic - Larry Felser
"Enough also with prime players, even quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, telling us that Johnson is a nobleman and a wonderful teammate with a great sense of humor. He's not here to earn a Boy Scout badge. He's here not to drop touchdown passes against the Jets, Steelers or anyone else in the vicinity of a big play for the Bills."

C.J. Spiller hoping for featured duo role next year with Fred Jackson -
About his confidence level as he wanted his turn, Spiller said "my confidence has never been low, even when Fred was having a great season."

Buffalo Bills should use Fred Jackson, C.J. Spiller more | Democrat and Chronicle
"Why wouldn't the Bills gladly give Jackson a new long-term deal? He'll be coming off a broken leg, he'll turn 31 years old on Feb. 20, and second-year man C.J. Spiller played very well after Jackson suffered his season-ending injury. Spiller isn't going anywhere."
