In addition to Peterson, Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson gives fans an inside perspective from the Bills locker room, including what type of music Coach Gailey listens to, who the best singer on the Bills team is and more.

"Our best singer, and our most musically gifted player has to be Bryan Scott,” said Johnson. “He can sing and play the piano, guitar, drums and saxophone. You name it, he can do it. He has played with the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra in a concert for 5,000 of Buffalo's public school students, and with recording artist Michelle Branch on Monday Night Football's ‘Monday Night at the Mic’ competition, in 2003.”

Saints defensive end, Will Smith, talks technology this week and how he believes it has helped him improve his game and become a better athlete.

"We've used the iPads the last couple of years, and it's so much better than the system we used before, with everything on DVDs,” said Smith. “Now, you don't have to carry around a box of DVDs, you just carry one device. Within a couple of seconds I can watch a specific situation.”
