Figured I'd serve up a thread to continue discussions now that the veterans are in town.  It should be interesting to see Kolb and TJax get into the mix at QB, and I'm wondering if TJ Graham will show us Goodwin isn't the only burner at wideout.

Also interested to see Stevie's reaction to receiving passes from the new guys.

I'm waiting with baited breath to find out if EJ's big hands fit under (into?) Woods' buttocks.

This won't be a problem...Roger Goodell said this league is an accepting one now.

I wanna see Woods Vs. Gilmore. Then we will know what's what with Woods. And, while we are watching that, we can see what Steve can do, when the best CB is covering elsewhere. I also want to see what Steve can do in the slot. I also want to see what happens with Steve when Goodwin and Graham are on the field at the same time.

I'd like to see how the defense reacts to that too. Love to see those guys obliterate the top, not just take the top off, the defense, and see what we can do with that. Imagine a Tampa 2 defense that has to deal with that. The entire back 4 is gone, and if you can run the ball out of that, and get to the 2nd level...then it's a TD, or at least a 60 yard running play, if it's Spiller.

OK. So I think it is safe to say Gilmore is our best CB? One thing I want to see is Goodwin against Gilmore! But I don't know his name but #14 doesn't look bad, I'm edited to see what he does against veterans.

This will only be an issue if EJ starts calling unnecessary audibles to stay under center longer.

I'd like to see what the defense is going to look like now that we have someone who runs actual plays and schemes.

If that happens, I will seriously question the coaching staff's decision making. It's a long off season and annointing a rookie as the starter before any real contact would rub alot of vets the wrong way. Thats just the tip of the iceberg.

I hope EJ starts the season, but he better prove himself first.

Seriously, camp's been open for over an hour and no reports of any TDs yet.
Terribly disappointing.

What a frenetic pace.  Love it!

#Bills snapped the ball every 12-14 seconds in their first OTA session today. Practice Notes - Day 1: http://ow.ly/kZq0c

QB rotation
Bills head coach Doug Marrone said from the outset that the quarterback rotation would likely change daily until one signal caller began to take hold of the job. On Monday Tarvaris JacksonPosted Image was the first quarterback through the rotation during the team period.
He was followed by Kevin KolbPosted Image and then EJ ManuelPosted Image was third in terms of the snaps on offense.
All three had some quality throws during the practice session. Kolb had a pair of deep touchdown passes covering 70 and 65 yards on bombs to Marcus EasleyPosted Image and the rookie Rogers.
Rogers, who also had an 80-yard touchdown play on a throw from Manuel simply beat his coverage on both occasions.
“They’re calling the plays, I had a deep post on a couple of plays and I just got behind the coverage,” said Rogers. “I used my speed and size.”
Kolb also had a well-timed play along the far sideline to Brad SmithPosted Image, who made a difficult grab before stepping out of bounds. He hit T.J. GrahamPosted Image for a big gainer in the deep middle too.
Manuel, in addition to the bomb to Rogers, also threw a dart over the middle to T.J. Graham for a 20-yard pass play.
