Buddy Nix believes in Manuel: 'EJ will be successful somewhere, some time' [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"One of the things when we drafted EJ, we were going to draft him and let him sit behind Fitz or a veteran for a couple of years and learn the NFL game and grow into it," Nix said. "We knew he wasn’t ready when we first drafted him but EJ has all the talent. EJ will be successful somewhere, some time. But he got thrown into it because of injuries and had to start as a rookie. He had some success and then he got hurt. There are just so many things that have to happen, have to fall right at that position. And they haven’t. They fell the other way for EJ.'

A rebound from an 0-8 start in 2010 cost the Bills the No. 1 draft pick [1:23 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Bills shouldn’t cry themselves to sleep — Dareus has absolutely been as advertised. But one dab, one souvenir football at a time, Sunday will be a cruel reminder of what could’ve been. The 2011 draft sent these three teams in three directions. Newton became the face of the Panthers, a revolutionary. Miller changed Denver’s identity, anchoring the NFL’s No. 1-ranked defense.'

Trent Dilfer likes QB Tyrod Taylor, but says Bills' offensive system/teaching needs work [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I like Tyrod," Dilfer said. "I think there were probably too high expectations for him. He hasn’t played a lot of real football. I thought his flashes were really good. I liked that he played hurt. He’s a tough kid. We were there in New England when he got banged up. I think he’s got a chance to be a solid starter in this league. I really do. I think their passing game needs to grow. I’m not a fan of what they do schematically in their passing game. I think it needs to grow a little bit. They’re very predicated off play action and their run game.'

Reporter Steve Bradley was doing the game story and me the column so we had him use the pass. I had locker room access and could have watched the game on television in a media room in the facility, but my buddy Tom Spink had an extra ticket so I sat with him and his friends.'

16 quarterbacks to know for Bills, Part 2 [1:52 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'Brissett is one of those intriguing mid-round options the Bills have likely referred to. He has fantastic physical skills which will help in the interim as he — as a team would hope — better as a passer.

He kind of fits the mold of a head guy. He’ll be a great head coach one day because he has those qualities.'
