Marker Inside slant [4:38 AM]
CBS Sportsline reports: '"I told them this morning and after practice they do need to get away, to be around family and friends," Mularkey said. "And I know they're all going to work out, lift and be in condition. But the thing they need to focus on and is hard to do is stay up with the football part of it. As coaches, we're going to stay in contact with them. Whatever it is (we do), they won't get away from football because that level, as much as conditioning, is important and we don't want to (lose) what we've accomplished to this point."'

Marker Strategy and personnel [4:37 AM]
CBS Sportsline reports: 'The Bills' interest in former Pittsburgh Steelers' All-Pro LB Jason Gildon isn't surprising - he was drafted by Buffalo GM Tom Donahoe when Donahoe was the Steelers' director of football operations and played all during coach Mike Mularkey's eight seasons on Pittsburgh's offensive staff. What is odd, however, is that Gildon came in for a visit just four days after Donahoe said, "He's not really a good fit in our defense."'

Marker Notes, quotes, anecdotes [4:36 AM]

That's the only thing people remember."'

It’s more mental than anything. This will allow us to come back ready to go.”'
