Buffalo Bills News - August 26, 2015

Marker Mixed signals still abound in quarterback race [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Although Ryan said that Matt Cassel, Tyrod Taylor, and EJ Manuel “have performed at a really high level” in the Bills’ two preseason games, none of the three looked all that exceptional as the Bills wrapped up their 16th camp at St. John Fisher College. Taylor had the best day, but that had a bit less to do with exceptional work on his part than it did with Cassel’s struggles to connect with receivers and Manuel’s issues with keeping the ball out of the hands of defenders.'

Marker Manny Lawson has a 'full plate' in Buffalo's defense [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"Wherever the coaches want to put me, I'm excited to be on the field and my role being expanded," Lawson said. "I rush the quarterback, cover man to man and drop in the zone. So I've got a full plate."'

Marker Preseason games prove dangerous [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Considering the siege of injuries on the team and around the NFL, I imagine many of the Bills wish that Rex Ryan would call a merciful end to training camp and allow his guys to spend the next 18 days playing video games.'

Marker Williams showing few signs of wear and tear [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“He’s been blessed to have some unique genes,” Bills defensive line coach Karl Dunbar said. “There’s things you hear about him, but he comes to work, works hard, and that’s what I love about him.”'

Marker Tyler Dunne's practice report: Day 17 [1:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'There's still no clear-cut starting quarterback. LeSean McCoy, the focal point on offense, might not be able to start the regular season. The pass rush should be dangerous again. Sammy Watkins, when a full go, dominated. Corey Graham is the starting safety (not Duke Williams). Sentrel Henderson won his right tackle job back.'

Marker Who will be the Bills' QB? Our Day 17 report [1:54 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Rex Ryan insists it's a three-way battle and that he and the rest of the coaches are focused on trying to give each contestant an equal opportunity. But Manuel is the only one of the three working with the scout team and getting minimal chances with the starters.'

Marker 5 things I learned at Bills training camp [1:53 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"We definitely expect to be in the playoffs," said Ryan. "We said that from Day One, no qualms about it, we expect to be in there. We realize a lot of things can happen, but we have a good football team. Give me the team that has talent and is committed to what we're doing and all in it together, I think we have a great chance."'

Marker Can these Bills break curse? [1:52 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: ' "The bottom line is that we haven't been good enough collectively as a team to win and make it,'' Williams said. "We've had bad breaks, this and that, that kept us out of it. But good teams make things happen. I think this year we have the guys that can make good things happen.'''

Marker The dollars and sense of Bills camp [1:51 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'This was the 16th year for Bills Camp at St. John Fisher. Accounts from other colleges — public universities that are, by definition, more transparent — indicate that whatever is charged is just enough to cover, or not quite cover expenses. The true benefit, cliche as it might sound, is the exposure, the side benefits like internships for students, and exclusive access events for alumni.'

Marker Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel: 'I love it here and I want to stay here' [1:50 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"I think you've got to live life with no regrets. So however this situation plays out, I'm going to be the best teammate I can be, and just go like that."'

Marker Percy Harvin, LeSean McCoy progress in rehab [1:49 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"Trainers are blown away with Percy's commitment to getting back out there," Rex Ryan said after practice.'

Marker The NFL’s Best Practice: No Wasted Time [1:48 AM]
Wall Street Journal reports: 'So Roman devised a plan to change the way Buffalo practices. The first part is to effectively split practice into two practices on separate parts of the field, so that everyone is running a play at all times—and there’s no more standing around.'

Marker Bills close camp with playoffs-or-bust expectations [1:47 AM]
AP reports: 'Calling this the best team he's been a part of, the eighth-year player said "without a doubt" that the Bills have a playoffs-or-bust mentality in a bid to end a 15-season playoff drought.'

Marker Rex Ryan Has Found the Next Darrelle Revis [1:46 AM]
SI reports: 'Or, he’s right enough. Maybe Revis, one of the best cover corners in history and the best of his era, is technically peerless. But the larger point—that Gilmore is an elite, shutdown artist—will prove to be true. Gilmore is long and strong. He understands angles and timing. He’s fluid and can contort and readjust his body in confined areas. Last season, he was impermeable in both man and zone. That was in a No. 4 ranked Bills defense whose strength was its secondary.'

Marker Ryan: Bills haven’t had discussions about Ray Rice [1:45 AM]
Sportsnet reports: '“No. Absolutely not,” Bills head coach Rex Ryan told Sportsnet 590 The Fan in an interview that will air Wednesday morning on Dean Blundell & Co.'

Marker Four things we learned from Bills training camp [1:44 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'The starting offensive line has done a nice job. The Bills are far, far better in the interior than they were a year ago now with Richie Incognito and John Miller at guard surrounding Eric Wood at center. Cordy Glenn has been steady at left tackle and Seantrel Henderson has really stepped up his game on the right edge.'

Marker Bills' Ryan has this training camp thing down [1:43 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'This is Ryan’s first trip to Fisher and he really was impressed, “I can’t thank everybody involved with St. John Fisher College enough, the staff here has been really incredible, first rate. It couldn’t have gone any better. But really from the weather, the people here, and the fans coming out it really added to training camp. I thought it was terrific. I think we got a lot done. Obviously in training camp it’s kind of tough because you’re installing new systems at the same time you’re evaluating your players. There’s so much going into it and you hope your team is coming together. I think we accomplished all that type of stuff. We’re not complete, but we are way ahead of the game and as we get ready to break camp, I couldn’t be happier with it.”'

Marker If Matt Cassel wins the job, should we panic? [1:42 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'While it seems the fan base is split between rooting like crazy for Tyrod Taylor to win the competition and yelling at shopping carts – err, sorry, trying to convince other people that EJ Manuel has never had a fair shot – it seems Matt Cassel has gone from the obvious choice to the option fans would be most unhappy with.'

Marker The Battle for Second Place: Bills vs. Dolphins [1:41 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Having said that, the team the Bills will probably have to surpass if they have any hopes in getting into the playoffs this year is in fact the Miami Dolphins. Let’s take a look at each core position group (QB, RB, WR, TE, OL, DL, etc.) and see who will have the advantage heading into this season.'

Marker 2015 Bills Training Camp Awards [1:40 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'Once Jackson and Dixon suffered an injury, the reps were shared between Williams and Brown, and Williams was far and away the best runner between the two. In fact, he was doing so well that some even believed he could push Jackson for the number-two job, and if something happened to McCoy, that he would even take over the lead-back duties.'

Marker Bills Training Camp 2015 -- That's a wrap! [1:39 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'In fact, every fan our 7 Eyewitness News team talked with on the final day of training camp was on "Team Tyrod."'

Marker Who has to perform in the pivotal third preseason game? [1:38 AM]
Bills Daily reports: The Offensive starter for the Bills to watch during Saturday’s preseason game against the Steelers is Matt Cassel. The QB competition is still a three horse race with Rex Ryan indicating that all three of them will get time with the first unit. Cassel is still the leader with Tyrod Taylor on his heels and EJ Manuel in third place. Cassel didn’t play last week as the coaching staff wanted an extended look at Taylor and Manuel. All that did was bunch things up even more.

Marker Top 3 things you need to know from Day 17 at Bills camp [1:37 AM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: 'It’s been a nip and tuck battle for the starting quarterback job in training camp, chiefly between Matt Cassel and Tyrod Taylor. Head coach Rex Ryan has maintained that not much should be read into the reps that each quarterback takes in practice, but EJ Manuel hasn’t gotten nearly as many with the first team offense.'

Marker Woods has been a good catch for the Bills [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“I just feel like the cornerback never really knows what I’m doing,” Woods said. “I think that’s the biggest key of it. Just always selling vertical — and I can stop faster than they can.”'

Marker NFL player: Bigger, faster and injury prone [1:58 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'While that would seem to be a good thing, saving players from wear and tear, coaches like Bill Belichick think the CBA is having the exact opposite effect. There is a difference between being in "shape'' and being in "football shape.'' Between a "preparation level'' and a "competition level.'''

Marker Marlon Kerner named Bills' director of alumni [1:57 AM]

The field will be used by two high schools, Vanguard Collegiate High and Integrated Arts and Technology High. In addition, district modified and city youth football teams will have access to the facility.'
