    BUFFALO, N. Kendell Beckwith Youth Jersey .Y. - Bengals offensive co-ordinator Hue Jackson interviewed for the Buffalo Bills head-coaching job on Wednesday. And former New York Jets coach Rex Ryan is on deck.A person familiar with the teams search process revealed those two candidates — among a number of others — to The Associated Press on Wednesday. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the Bills have not announced any details of their search to replace Doug Marrone, who stepped down abruptly last week.There are at least 10 candidates on the list. Bills defensive co-ordinator Jim Schwartz has already been interviewed, as was Philadelphia Eagles offensive co-ordinator Pat Shurmer, the person said.A second person familiar with the process, and also speaking on the condition of anonymity, told the AP that the Bills were granted permission from the Browns to interview Cleveland offensive co-ordinator Kyle Shanahan. He is the son of two-time Super Bowl-winning coach Mike Shanahan, who is also a candidate after being interviewed by the Bills in San Francisco last weekend.The Bills are taking an exhaustive, wide-reaching approach to the search under new owners Terry and Kim Pegula, who bought the franchise in October. Both Pegulas are sitting in on the interviews, along with general manager Doug Whaley and team president Russ Brandon.The team has not established a timetable on hiring a coach, or placed a limit on the number of candidates being considered, the person said.Thats a switch from the Bills previous coaching search, during which five candidates were interviewed six days before Marrone was hired in early January 2013. The team is in the midst of its sixth coaching search since Wade Phillips was fired following the 2000 season.Separately, a third person familiar with the decision told the AP that former general manager Buddy Nix and veteran scouts David G. Smith and David W. Smith will not return. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the Bills have not announced the moves.Nix held the role of special assistant since stepping down as GM in May 2013. The Smiths had a combined 58 years of NFL experience, and each held the title of scout emeritus.The off-season changes come following a season in which the Bills showed signs of progress. Buffalo (9-7) had its best record in 10 years, yet still extended the NFLs longest active playoff drought to 15 seasons.Marrones departure caught the Bills off guard. The second-year coach exercised the opt-out clause in his contract, which kicked into effect once the team was sold following the death of Hall of Fame owner Ralph Wilson in March.The Pegulas now have a chance to start fresh. And the teams extensive list of candidates provides them options to determine the Bills future front-office structure.The Bills already met with three assistants currently working for teams still in the playoffs: Seattle co-ordinators Darrell Bevell (offence) and Dan Quinn (defence), and Denver offensive co-ordinator Adam Gase.Coaches on playoff teams cannot be hired until their seasons end.The Bills also interviewed San Diego Chargers offensive co-ordinator Frank Reich.___AP Sports Writers Tom Withers in Cleveland, and Rob Maaddi in Philadelphia contributed to this report.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL O. J. Howard Youth Jersey . "It was a little weird looking over and seeing all the green uniforms," he said of his first game against the Boston Celtics. Kendell Beckwith Jersey . Cilic cruised to victory, beating the seventh-seeded Seppi 6-1, 6-3 in just 72 minutes. He faced only one break point, winning 24 out of 29 points played on the first serve.Sidney Crosby is still the best hockey player in the world. Thats not by any means an outrageous statement and its one that not too many would disagree with, at all. As Crosby and his Pittsburgh Penguins prepare for Game 7 against the New York Rangers in the second round of the Eastern Conference playoffs, there is one thing about the Pens captain, though, that is considerably less definitive. When it comes to crunch time, is Sidney Crosby still the first player you would turn to? To the northwest of Pittsburgh, in St. Paul, Minnesota to be exact, there is another captain playing tonight in a game that could see his team advance to the conference final, just as Sidney Crosbys Penguins can. In Game 6 of their Western Conference second-round series, the Chicago Blackhawks - led by Jonathan Toews - can advance to a second-straight Western Conference Final by defeating the Minnesota Wild as they continue their defence of the Stanley Cup. As a two-time Stanley Cup winner and a two-time Olympic gold medalist, has Toews taken over the mantle as hockeys preeminent go-to guy? The suggestion that Crosby wouldnt be the first player you would turn to in the clutch is by no means a referendum on his status as the games best. It isnt and the Hart Trophy hes likely going to win next month at the NHL Awards (to go along with the one he earned in 2007), confirming his status as the NHLs MVP cements thhat. Chris Godwin Buccaneers Jersey. Crosby is hockeys best all-around player and has been for some time. Still, the Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia native has recently disappeared when the chips are down. Going into tonights game, Crosby has just one goal in his past 17 playoff games (of course, Rick Nash is enduring that exact same streak of futility, but thats another discussion altogether) and the indelible image of Crosby in these playoffs, thus far, was his Game 6 spear of Dominic Moore. Conversely, Toews could be looking at another Conn Smythe Trophy if he can help lead the Blackhawks to a third Stanley Cup in five seasons. While Crosby languishes with a solitary marker in this years playoffs, Toews has five in 11 games - with four of them game-winning goals. Thats now 10 game-winning goals in his career, most in his teams history. Sure, thats a long ways away from Wayne Gretzky and Brett Hulls joint record of 24 career game-winning goals in the playoffs, but its four more than Crosbys tally in eight fewer career playoff games. Perhaps, even more telling about Toewss current status of big game-breaker is that Crosby, upon being informed that he was being named Canadas captain for Sochi, reportedly wanted Toewss blessing before accepting the C. So who would you rather have in an elimination/advancement game like tonight: Sidney Crosby or Jonathan Toews?
