Doug Marrone: "Kyle Orton is much better for us." On learning the playbook quickly: "You'll be surprised at what he can do"

Marrone: #Bills targeted Kyle Orton "very early" and many discussions were had "just in case"

Marrone on Leodis McKelvin: "(He looks) better and better each day" Likely to be used as primary punt returner.

Marrone on #Bills 6 captains: "It's an honor to be voted one of your peers, and it's a lot of responsibility"

Marrone: DaNorris Searcy and Aaron Williams will be listed as starting safeties. #BUFvsCHI

No update on Sammy Watkins and his availability for Sunday. He did practice today although the team wouldn't say how much. #Bills

Doug Marrone believes CB Leodis McKelvin is close to 100%. Should be ready for the Bears game. #Bills

If you have chandler, start him in fantasy. He is going to get a ton of targets with the middle of that Bears D. Soft.

If Sammy sounds vague to anyone, don't forget Marrone publically said he told him not to provide info on his status after he said something after the TB game that he could have played.

Brandon Spikes get's me psyched up…smart move making him a Captain…true enforcer in the middle….Pepper Johnson knows how to get him prepared and fired up.  The kind of stuff that an entire unit can feed off!

Orton, Bills believe backup will be up to speed for Week 1

Quote

Just moments before the initial 53-man roster was due into the National Football League offices, the Buffalo Bills announced the signing of quarterback Kyle Orton. The move paved the way for the Bills to release second-year quarterback Jeff Tuel and to entrust Orton with all the responsibilities of being EJ Manuel’s backup.

The big question, though, is will he be ready to step in at a moment’s notice? Both he and Buffalo head coach Doug Marrone seem to think so.

“This week, and I think I'll be ready to go. I’ve really put a lot of work in the last 48-72 hours mentally,” Orton said. “Physically it went really good today and I'll be ready to go on Sunday.”

May I ask a silly question; why is Gay still on the roster? Is he the new KO specialist? Is this team good enough to waste this slot instead of keeping another schittie QB?

I'd much rather see an extra lineman (offensive or defensive) than KO guy.

Legit question. I want either Gay or Schmidt to handle both the P and KO duties such that an extra roster spot isn't used up.  Hopefully, OBD has this in mind no later than September 8th when Bradham is due back from his 1 game suspension.

Can we just take a minute and take in the fact that Brandon Spikes is wearing a bathrobe. That might be an NFL first. I think I am in love. Ha

Newly renovated facilities at RWS might be better than being at home.  At least he's comfortable.
