'For the rest of the league, it's a simple case of waiting for the inevitable and signing him after he clears waivers.'

'Some tweeters gave serious fine dining suggestions like Mulberry in Lackawanna, The Grange in Hamburg, Ristorante Lombardo in Buffalo. Several others invited him over to their homes for a home-cooked meal.'
'In Cincinnati, Taylor was not only kept in the pocket by the defense more than in any other game this season, he also seemed more willing to read through his progressions from the pocket than usual. That combination led to Buffalo's signal-caller having a significantly difficult time eluding pressure and escaping sacks.'
'Not surprisingly, Nick O'Leary saw a big increase in work after fellow tight end Charles Clay was hurt in the first half. O'Leary played a season-high 59 snaps and was targeted six times. He is expected to have a big role while Clay is out with a knee injury.'
'“This place is rowdy,” he said of New Era Field. “(The fans) are wild and they love their football.”'
'Some have wondered if it’s his age finally catching up to him. To borrow a tried and true phrase from Rubeus Hagrid, that’s a load of hogwash. Codswallop, if you will.'
'Fans have seen the same things week in, and week out from Taylor without much semblance of improvement from where he was in 2015, and definitely not a lot from 2016, either. Taylor has been a constant — a what-you-see-is-what-you-get type of quarterback that can get the ball where you need it to go when he has the players around him to make some plays and to not turn the ball over, either.'
'Left tackle Dion Dawkins has been up and down — as expected — in his rookie season, right guard John Miller proved to be an untrustworthy option at right guard, Jordan Mills has continued to struggle at right tackle, and even Richie Incognito, while still solid, has played below the form we’ve come to expect from him over the last two seasons.'
'“We’ve got to look at everything,” said McDermott. “It’s never just one thing. It’s never just the offensive line. It’s never just the tight ends, the wide receivers and the eight-man box. It’s all of that. It’s everything that we can do better.”'
'“I thought he did a good job,” McDermott said. “The first thing we look at is really the look in his eye and we talked about that. I’ve talked about that with coach [Bob" target="_blank"> Babich, our linebackers coach, and he said he had the right look in his eye on the boundary and I thought he handled himself well. It wasn’t too big for him and now, knowing Matt, he’ll continue to improve. He puts a lot of time into his job and again, another young guy that was out there on the field and did a good job at times for us.”'
