CHICAGO – Gamesmanship apparently never stops for Sean McDermott. The Buffalo Bills’ head coach elected not to announce a starting lineup before Thursday’s preseason finale against the Bears at Soldier Field. What’s more, the Bills didn’t provide a list of those who would not play at all. For comparison, the Bears listed 37 players who would sit out the game. That’s …

Pencil is definitely the best writing tool to use when jotting down the Buffalo Bills’ depth chart at wide receiver.

PITTSFORD – It was not a memorable practice for any of the Buffalo Bills’ three quarterbacks Sunday. AJ McCarron, Nathan Peterman and Josh Allen all had at least one pass intercepted on a day the passing attack was stagnant. McCarron was with the first team.

It was a foregone conclusion Joe Lovullo and his new wife, Lorrie, would be at New Era Field for their wedding pictures Saturday.

Here's a great bar conversation to have, courtesy of a tweet from NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah on Friday. "The 2011 NFL Draft class should be a documentary one day," Jeremiah wrote on Twitter. "Seven of the top 11 picks will be Hall of Famers. Cam Newton (1) Von Miller (2) AJ Green (4) Patrick Peterson (5) Julio Jones (6) Tyron Smith (9) JJ Watt (11)." I'm not sold …

Brandon Beane felt compelled to apologize to Brian Daboll. The Buffalo Bills’ general manager intended to get the team’s offensive coordinator some more help during last week’s NFL Draft. After taking quarterback Josh Allen with the seventh overall selection, however, each of Beane’s next four picks played defense. "We had to trust the board,” Beane said Monday durin…
