Marker Q&A: Panthers' Coleman on strengths of new Bills coach McDermott [1:46 AM]
Toronto Sun reports: '“He has a great blend, because you can’t have a guy that’s just micro-managing everything, who’s always trying to light the fire. Your players must lead. If you don’t have the right players leading, then you need to get new players. So if you have the right leadership, which we’ve had in Carolina, we’ve done a great job of being able to lead ourselves. But you still have those days where your team is just not responding. If his guys are not playing or practising with the enthusiasm that’s needed, Sean’s not afraid to speak up and really get under people.”'

Because that's a guy that kind of helped this whole group form a mentality and shape us to professionals. He gave us the whole script of off the field, on the field, and it's helping this wide receiver group and helping the players."'

Marker Before joining Chargers, Lynn thought Buffalo 'was best place for me' [1:56 AM]

Marker Hogan's emergence is crowning insult to the Bills [1:55 AM]

Marker Jay Skurski's 3 Bills thoughts: Chad Kelly a bad fit in Buffalo, 'six' Pro Bowlers, d [1:53 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'On top of all that, Kelly is coming off a second torn ACL in his right knee, and played in an offense at Ole Miss that didn't ask him to read defenses the way he'll have to at the NFL level.

He's graded as a sixth-round prospect by CBS Sports, but carries unreasonably high expectations because of his last name. That would be especially true in Buffalo.'

Marker Friday feels: 5 thoughts on the Buffalo Bills [1:49 AM]
Batavia Daily News reports: 'I’m not opposed to the Bills keeping Tyrod Taylor. If the team doesn’t, it’s near 100 percent that the Bills will draft someone. But if Taylor stays, take someone anyway.

Marker Bills tackle Kouandjio has hip surgery after falling at home [1:48 AM]

Marker McDermott's staff gets good marks from Ex-GM Dominik [1:44 AM] reports: '“I think the good thing he’s got is he has guys who have been the head of their department,” said Dominik. “(Rick) Dennison has run that offensive department for so long and it’s very natural for him. Leslie (Frazier) has not only been a head coach, but a defensive coordinator before, so it’s not new to either of those guys. So I think that’s the most critical part. You’re not concerned and asking, ‘Is he going to be able to call plays?’'

"How can he survive and Rex doesn't survive? (Whaley) made those decisions. You talk about the bad contract for Tyrod Taylor with the $30-million pill in it. He didn't even have to give Tyrod Taylor an extension; he was still under contract. So those are all decisions that he made. You talk about trading everything that you traded for Sammy Watkins. Who made that decision? Doug Whaley.'

Marker Chad Kelly: Playing for Bills would be 'once-in-a-lifetime opportunity' [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I mean, that'd be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, of course, to play for your home team, where you grew up and all through the years," the former St. Joe's standout said while here for the Senior Bowl.

What we want to have them do is explain their vision of the player in their system that they're going to run. So that's the process. Then we go from there and assign a value.'

Marker Doug Whaley explains Buffalo Bills' philosophy on scouting underclassmen [1:53 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"You're obviously going to be aware of guys, but you really don't dive into them because what we like to do is be as efficient as possible," Whaley said. "So if you're going to spend your time on a guy that may not come out, then you're going to take time away from the guys that are definitely coming out. There's plenty enough time from January to the end of April to get these guys, these juniors done. If we can't get them done by us, that's our fault."'
