Marker Bills’ Ryan paves a rich media trail [12:05 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“Maybe it’s because he drives a pickup and drinks beer; or because his favorite local Mexican restaurant, El Canelo, sits in a strip mall; or because he wore a throwback Thurman Thomas jersey at the combine; or because he orders a plate of wings, even though his lap band won’t let him eat more than one or two during a sitting. Whatever the reason, Ryan has already won over the fans and the franchise’s legends.'

Marker Erin Kelly shares story behind 'Kelly Tough' [12:03 AM]
Salamanca Press reports: '“It certainly didn’t start that way,” Erin said. “There were moments when we were reluctant to share on social media, especially my dad, just for our privacy’s sake and because of the struggle that he was going through. But we came to the point where we knew we had to share — not only so that people would pray for my dad because so many people rallied around him and that was because of social media — but because social media provided us an avenue to be an encouragement to others. Rather than being this burden of social media, it really became a blessing to all of us.”'

Marker Quarterback competition among 5 toughest roster decisions facing 2015 Buffalo Bills [1:56 AM]

Not only will the winner of the competition be the Bills' opening week starter in 2015, but the player who comes out on bottom could end up getting cut.

Marker Power play: Bills sign fullback Conner [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“A lot of teams don’t even have a fullback, and we’ve got two of them,” Ryan said Wednesday, after the team announced it had signed Conner as a free agent. “Two of the best fullbacks in the league are on our football team. So I think that may tell you a little bit about the type of style of football that we want to play.”'

Buffalo News reports: '“Your job as a coach is to prepare your team to the best of your ability and that’s what I did,” he said. “I saw the Patriots as obviously a very capable opponent and that was really how I prepared. ...

The Sports Xchange reports: '"No matter who's there, we're playing the Patriots Week 2, they're playing us," Ryan said Wednesday.

All the particulars and all that stuff, I really haven't given any thought to it."'

Marker Time may have finally arrived for Bills' Powell [1:53 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Powell knows nothing is going to be handed to him. The Bills have a total of eight linebackers on the roster, and given Ryan’s hybrid schemes, several of them can be asked to play inside or outside at any given time. It’s also a young position group, with players doing whatever they can to get noticed and win jobs. That means there’s always competition for Powell. “They’re coming in to compete and take your spot. And it’s a long season so anything can happen from now to the beginning of the season.”'

Marker Deflategate - Make It Stop [1:50 AM]
Bills Daily reports: I’m happy to see a richly deserved punishment be served, but the amount of whining, crying, nonsensical arguments that permeates things here makes me think another 110” of snow might be a good thing – at least there would be something else to talk about.

Marker 11 questions with Rex Ryan on the Patriots, John Conner, and Bills rookies [1:49 AM] reports: 'The good thing, and Doug Whaley and I talk about it all the time, is that we’ll keep the best players. If that means two fullbacks, then so be it. Both (Jerome) Felton and John, can they contribute on special teams as well? I think both guys can. Clearly we brought Felton in to be the guy, but it just so happens that John Conner is still sitting out there and you know what, I know John and he’s a heck of a football player. He’s an excellent teammate, so let’s bring him in, let him compete and I would not be surprised if John makes our team.'

After short stints with the Bengals and Giants, Conner, 27, returned to the Jets in 2014.'
