Marker The 3-2-1 [1:37 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'We had a caller this week say this about Tyrod Taylor. While I’m not ready to lock Taylor in as the starter for the next few years, I have to agree (on a much smaller level obviously). The Bills are a more fun watch than they’ve been in other years of the drought. I know most would take boring and playoffs, but its worth noting that simply wanting to watch your team play is something a sports fan needs. Hey look! Someone exciting or good! Why did we support the tank? Why do I still have about 3,000 people on a text list that just loved the tank? Because of last night. A Tuesday game in Ottawa was infinitely more interesting and exciting because of one player. Building around him is the tough part. It’s having him that will truly engage so many fans in the rest of the building process. Thurman Thomas and Eric Wood tweeting their excitement during pregame should tell you what you need to know. The opening night shell shocked performance should tell you. That’s Jack’s team.'

On Monday, all Rex Ryan would say was that the team was hopeful that the defensive lineman would be able to play, but offered up no real definitive statement on his outlook. On Wednesday, though, it was a different story.'

Marker Ihedigbo takes chameleon approach with Bills [1:33 AM] reports: '“It was tough, believe me,” Ihedigbo said. “I’m a competitor.
