08:03 AM ET 03.29 | Cam Newton isn't the only quarterback trucking off to Buffalo, who is also likely entertaining, at least, Blaine Gabbert and Christian Ponder. Chan Gailey and Buddy Nix admitted quarterback isn't the Bills' biggest need because they believe veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick is a reliable starter. But both men made it clear they have to strongly consider taking a potentially great signal caller if he's available with the third overall pick in the draft. ... "If you wait until you do not have a quarterback to draft one, you're too late," Nix said. "Now our greatest need is not quarterback. It's definitely not quarterback. Invariably, if there's going to be a franchise guy there and one we deem as a guy that can go eight or 10 years, be the face of the organization and take us to the playoffs and win every year, you can't pass him up."

They shouldn't do that.

Drafting against need isn't always smart, the Bills have too many needs to NOT draft for need.

The Siberian Huskies are an NFL franchise?

I guess they're not on my radar if they don't have cheerleaders.

Whenever Ralph kicks the bucket, Buffalo won't even have an NFL team.

Sure, they'll draft against need. But only because you can't draft an owner.

The Siberian Huskies are the Bills foreign cousin.

They just need an owner that they don't have to prop up and pretend he has a pulse.

If the Bills draft Newton, it will be impossible for him to get in trouble there.

Unless you can tie this to Buffalo bacon, I see no possible connection to anything insightful here.

Ladies and Gentlemen, allow me to introduce your new Los Angeles Bills! The new team logo should be interesting. I'd favor a Ke$ha based theme.

He'll be snowed in. If the poor guy wants to make it rain he'll have to put up a stripper pole in his garage.
