Marker Bills need to learn how to win [5:09 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'This was a game the Bills expected to win. It was a game they should have won.

Marker Bills die in seconds [5:05 AM]

Marker New-look Bills set for close encounters [9:05 AM]

He really feels at home there. We haven't talked in a week, which is really unusual, which means he's working his butt off right now.

"I do have a sense this year is an opportunity for us."'

Marker Double trouble [5:04 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"That's what you want to hear," Henry said. "It shows they are really committed to running the ball.

It's nice to know that commitment is there this year."'

Marker Q&A: Chris Villarrial [5:03 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'If you were head coach of the Bills for a day, what kind of day would it be? "It would be short. No, there'd be meetings in the morning, a nice light practice in the afternoon, then sum it up with meetings and lifting. Get the guys out of here and keep them fresh."'

Marker Donahoe's moves must reap results [5:03 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'You inherited an aging team and a big salary cap mess, and you've done a good job cleaning it up. You appear to have strengthened the defense and offense. But you erred with Gregg Williams, your first choice for coach, and there won't be any more mulligans as far as the fans and "experts'' are concerned. With Eric Moulds and Pat Williams the only holdovers from the John Butler era, you've almost completely purged the roster, and after a 17-31 won-lost mark that included last year's back-pedaling, it's time for your game plan to take hold.'
