Business First of Buffalo reports: 'Is it possible that Rich/Bills/Ralph Wilson Stadium may one day again have a different name on it? That, it seems, may hinge on what kind of deal the next owner of the Bills strikes..."What the contract says is the Bills have a right to name the stadium," said Michael Hughes, spokesperson for Erie County Executive Dennis Gorski, of the new lease agreement signed earlier this year. "The county has the rights to review it if the Bills sell the name of it."'

Marker Bills Ready For Season; Bengals Running Out Of Time [6:22 AM]

Cincinnati Post reports:

Marker Smith Could Make Debut Against Bills [9:26 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'Smith is expected to make his pro debut tonight in a preseason game against the Buffalo Bills. It won't amount to much -- after signing a contract earlier this week, the quarterback from Oregon needs to catch up before he can play much.'

Marker Bills Play Naming Game With Quarterbacks [9:24 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'Phillips has been evasive and prickly about the subject of his quarterbacks, each of whom earns a starter's salary. "Maybe I'm being hard-headed about it," Phillips said. "We've got two good quarterbacks, our team is happy about that. That's it."'

Marker Bills' Newcomers Face Final Chance Against Bengals [9:18 AM]
D & C reports: 'NFL rosters must be trimmed to 65 players by Tuesday, making tonight's third preseason game at Cincinnati a night of last auditions. Making the game more critical for those on the bubble is that Bills coach Wade Phillips plans on using much of it honing his first units and working on things they will be operating this year. If some starters need rest, they can take it next Saturday when the Bills end their practice schedule at home against Pittsburgh. What it means is less opportunity tonight for newcomers to make a good impression.'

Olean Times Herald reports: Wade Phillips: “We’re getting two quarterbacks ready ... that’s all we’re doing. “When we finish preseason, we’ll be in great shape at quarterback ... I don’t have any doubt. And there isn’t any more to it than that. I think people are trying to read more into it than there is.”

Marker No QB Problems For Bills [7:09 AM]
Toronto Sun reports: 'The simple truth is that, in today's NFL, whether you designate a No. 1 or not, without two quality quarterbacks it's tough to survive an entire season and remain in contention.'

Marker AFC East Preview [6:20 AM]
Dallas Morning News reports: '[The Bills are] a solid football team across the board but short on the superstars that win championships. Wide receiver Eric Moulds is entering that zone, but both wideout Andre Reed and defensive end Bruce Smith are descending in the mid-30s. The Bills have been so good for so long that they haven't drafted high enough to add those necessary blue-chippers.'
