Tuesday’s training camp practice for the Buffalo Bills looked eerily similar to Monday’s practice, the only difference being the addition of pads. Some nice plays were made by a handful of players but on the whole, the Bills offense looked horribly out of sync.

While still very early in the whole training camp process, there were a few things I noticed over my two days at St. John Fisher College that should give Bills fans pause for concern. With U2′s classic song “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” as our theme this time, here are my observations from Tuesday’s practice.

During a few hours of extreme humidity at St. John Fisher College on Monday afternoon, I had the opportunity to take in the Buffalo Bills’ second practice of their 2014 training camp.

The team has many new faces and despite the injury to middle linebacker Kiko Alonso, defensive tackle Marcel Dareus’ off-field issues and Cordy Glenn’s mystery ailment, hope still springs eternal for the Bills’ embattled fan base.

Like the classic Clint Eastwood film, the theme of Monday’s training camp observations are The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

Remember Heads Up, Seven Up? Of course you do. Everyone played this guessing game growing up in elementary school. I use the term guessing lightly, because let’s be honest, a lot of kids peeked and watched who tapped their thumbs.

On Tuesday, I felt like one of those students who peeked, so to speak. During the Buffalo Bills’ morning practice, I saw a glimpse of how the rookies and veterans are performing, players who should stay as depth and which Bills players are on the verge of emerging as superstars. Based on Tuesday’s practice, here are seven players whose stock is going up.

To call Monday afternoon’s practice uneventful would be an understatement. To be fair, Buffalo had a preseason game on Sunday and flew back into Rochester, N.Y. Sunday evening. While the practice was a bit light, there is still plenty to talk about.

Quarterback Rotation

Buffalo’s three quarterbacks took time working with the offense Monday. Of the three, EJ Manuel exhibited the best natural arm. Manuel connected on a deep pass to Chris Hogan early in the practice. The ball was perfectly placed and Hogan caught the ball in stride. Later in the practice, Manuel dialed up another deep pass, this one intended for Robert Woods. Manuel’s throw was on the money, but Crezdon Butler broke up the pass at the last possible second.
