Marker As challenges mount, Marrone keeps things in perspective [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“I was right outside Mercy Hospital,” Marrone said. “It was tough. You see people trying to get to the hospital. You see emergency employees, nurses and doctors trying to get to the hospital. I can’t say enough about the people of Buffalo. It’s a really unbelievable experience. People were helping each other. People were helping get people to the hospital. People from the hospital were going out. The people were trying to plow snow from the streets.'

Marker Marrone’s outdated approach undermines Bills’ potential [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“I encourage Coach to be aggressive and just believe in the defense,” Williams said. “I tell myself this and I joke about it, but sometimes I really mean it. I feel like if we can’t make a fourth-and-1, we shouldn’t be able to win that game. Fourth-and-1 is literally just taking one step.”'

Marker Polian saw need to overhaul Bills organization [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Soon thereafter, Don Hartnett, the league security representative, gave me a briefing that curled my hair. It turned out we had players who were involved with drugs.

Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"I don't know," Vick said when asked what he's expecting. "Football is kind of a game where you just roll with the punches and the elements. You can't question Mother Nature. You can't back out of it. You have to go do what you got to do. It's going to be tough. Adverse conditions are always going to be hard on a football team, but I think at the end of the day we all in the same boat, and we have to go get it done.'

Marker Buffalo Bills need help shoveling 220,000 tons of snow from stadium, offer $10/hour, free tickets [1:54 AM]

Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"It's tough. You don't want to compare it to other things and say this was worse than that," Marrone said. "I think every phase is very difficult. This is very challenging. For me, the hardest part, or the most recognizing part of it was being in front of the hospital when I was stuck. Just made you realize a lot of other things that are definitely more critical than the point of me trying to get to the stadium. It's a challenge. We're all challenged here. I think everybody is doing the best job that they can to get it resolved. It's a tough, tough situation. I've never been part of this, even being a New York state native. This brings me back to the 70s and the big storm we had back then."'

Marker Where could the Buffalo Bills play on Sunday? Carrier Dome is not an option [1:52 AM]
