One Buffalo politician says there needs to be more transparency in the process of determining whether the Bills will get a new stadium.
Said Dolphins coach Joe Philbin, “The game is not that complicated. If the guy is open, we’ve got to get him the ball. It’s that simple. We can talk trajectory, we can talk it should be X amount of yards, y4 yards from the boundary and we can have red lines, which we do. We’ve got all that stuff. We’ve got all of the bells and whistles. But at the end of the day, when the guy is wide open, we’ve got to make the plays.”

Said Browns backup QB Johnny Manziel, “I don’t look at is as I was drafted to come in Day 1 and save the franchise. For me, there’s no pressure, there’s no timetable. It’s to continue to develop, get smarter, get better, and whenever that time is, I’ll go out there and play football like I’ve been doing for the past years of my life.”
