MEILER: Even in loss, Marrone and Co. are winners


Niagara Gazette — The NFL's short, 16-game schedule, mixed with the number of plays and the number of players involved in each play, makes it difficult to truly get an idea of a team's identity. There are simply too many variables each week and two few weeks to get a positive read. Eventually, you have to go out on a limb and call a team what it appears to be.

Right now, the Buffalo Bills are an inexperienced team with questions of depth that is finding a way to overcome injuries and has not met a challenge that it wasn't willing to get up for.

That's on coaching, and for the first time in a very long time in Buffalo sports, that's a good thing.
