PITTSFORD, N.Y. -- Here are five observations on the Buffalo Bills, based on their Aug. 17 practice:

Like all inexperienced quarterbacks, J.P. Losman is going to make mistakes. He's also going to make a lot of plays for the Bills.

From Drew Bledsoe to Losman. Talk about opposite ends of the mobility spectrum. Losman is going to be a weapon for Mike Mularkey, especially on third downs. Defensive ends and outside linebackers, worrying about Willis McGahee, are going to forget to stay at home on the back side and honor the bootleg action, and Losman is going to make them pay.
