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.

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.

The Buffalo Bills’ 2014 training camp is officially set to begin. On Sunday, the Bills will have their first practice of the summer at St. John Fisher College in Pittsford, N.Y. After a busy offseason in which the Bills rebuilt much of their coaching staff once again, signed free agents and made a splashy trade in the draft, training camp will be a time for Buffalo to answer lingering questions about its 2014 team and prepare for the upcoming season.

As of the time of this post, the beginning of Buffalo Bills training camp is just 46 days away. We know that now as the team announced its schedule for this year’s camp at St. John Fisher College in Pittsford, N.Y.

Because the Bills have the privilege of opening the preseason schedule in this year’s Hall of Fame Game on Aug. 3, they will also be one of the first two teams in the NFL to begin their training camp. Buffalo’s first training camp practice is set for July 20, 14 days before the Bills are scheduled take the field against the New York Giants in Canton, Ohio.

The Buffalo Bills are coming off of a busy week at Bills Drive in Orchard Park, N.Y., as training camp continued to roll along while the Bills also played their first home game of the preseason versus the Minnesota Vikings on Friday. The Bills are now halfway through this year’s preseason, and less than three full weeks away from their regular-season opener versus the New England Patriots.

Here’s a look at back at what Buffalo Bills Draft’s best have had to say in the past week.
