Marker Bills get busy on opening day [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“Well, of course, you have to have a sense of urgency, especially at our position,” Cassel said. “I think every time you go out there, you’re trying to prove that you’re the guy and also that you’re prepared, you’re ready to go.

Marker McCoy not getting it right now [1:58 AM]

Buffalo News reports: '“We want to win, I can tell you that much,” Ryan said. “And we expect to win. I think going into it we are going to work.

Marker Rex Ryan feeling sky-high after Day 1 of Bills camp [1:53 AM]

"This day was a long time coming, you can't wait to get out here, itching and ready to go, you experience the fans, great weather, on the grass and all that stuff, man, it's tremendous."'
