Buffalo News reports: 'For best player -- as in pure talent, athleticism, and production -- I'll go with Bruce Smith.

For that matter, he's on the short list of players at any position capable of having the most consistent dominance.'

Marker 21 - Who will be the starting middle linebacker? [1:55 AM] reports: '“There’s some that I still have to get used to,” said Ragland. “I never played in a 4-3 before, but I’m getting there and taking my time with it.

"And we were just talking about how guys are playing not only longer but they're playing better. And what I think Tom has going right now is he has his complete ecosystem supporting him, and he'll be able to play as long as he wants. He does the nutrition. He does the body work with his guy up there in Boston. He's going all the little things that will enable him to do that guys maybe 10 or 15 years ago didn't know about. So barring a major injury, he keeps playing at a high level like this, he'll play as long as he wants."'

Marker 23 - Who will be the primary returner? [1:57 AM] reports: 'While Hyde may not be the front-runner, he provides experience and depth. He has just a good shot as the others.

I’ve made a conscious effort to work on my ball positioning.”'

Marker Bills at DB: Hard to see immediate improvement in revamped secondary [1:59 AM]

It's also hard to expect immediate improvement with two new safeties -- free-agent acquisitions Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer -- who have yet to be starters for a full NFL season and who are also learning a new scheme.'

Marker Uncle Jim's advice to Chad Kelly: 'Shut your mouth, work hard' [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I think it hinders it a little bit, but until you go out there and make a couple mistakes, you got to learn," Kelly said. "Right now, I'm kind of just visualizing everything, pretending like you're calling out the MIKE even in your hotel room every day. You got to pretend like you're out there doing exactly what those other quarterbacks are doing so when you're out there, you can't miss a beat."'

The Bills are depending on someone who's appeared in 21 games the past two years and someone who's never played a down of football in the NFL.'

Marker Bills Today: Reason for optimism [1:54 AM] reports: 'He is in the early stages of creating a culture that can sustain and put the Bills in position to be in that playoff mix in the coming years. With that as a springboard, count me in the "yes" category of the Bills snapping that playoff drought before 2019. As an annual visitor to western New York for the Patriots-Bills rivalry, it's always great to see how much the city supports the team. The fans deserve to taste some success after this playoff drought, and I'm a believer that McDermott is the leader to help the franchise snap the skid.'
