He didn’t have to do that. So glad to play for someone like that and I can’t wait to develop with him.”'

Jill, very, very low moment. And it was amazing the way they fought. It didn't look good. I would have said, maybe it's not going to happen, but there was always that hope, because of Jim and Jim's heart. But I want to just say that it's great to have you here today Jim and these people are big, big fans."'

Marker Pollock: McDermott happy to be reunited with GM Beane [11:51 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: '“Just in terms of mutual respect ... that’s key in any relationship,” he said. “I certainly came up one way, he came up in a similar fashion through this business.

Marker Roth: Pegula's new GMs both said the right word: 'Collaborate' [1:55 AM]

Marker MMQB predicts Buffalo Bills to be among league's worst teams in 2017 [1:54 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Prognosticators should run away from Buffalo's dysfunction, not to it. With the Pegulas firing Doug Whaley, it's apparently first-year head coach Sean McDermott's club for the time being. His move to take the ping-pong tables out of the locker room sounds good until you realize the Falcons went to the Super Bowl with three tables in their locker room last year. And the Bills don't seem to like or appreciate their above-average quarterback. Prepare for a step back in 2017.'

Marker It's about time Bills got it right [1:50 AM]
WHAM-TV reports: 'I don't think the plan going forward is for McDermott to do it all himself. I think he is smart enough to know that when you hire someone you trust (i.e. Leslie Frazier as the Defensive Coordinator) you let the person do the job. Maybe it is just semantics, but I think this organization will finally be more about influence and less about power. I think the plan is for McDermott to bring in people like Beane that have his respect and his trust, and then to watch them go to work.'
