Marker Losman gives Buffalo fans a reason to cheer [3:05 PM]
The Sports Network reports: '"Most important of all, he (Losman) kept the defense fresh," Lawyer Milloy said. "That's what we want out of him, nothing more, nothing less. As long as he keeps us fresh, we're going to keep giving him the ball. Last year, when we were hurt together, I told him, "Look, this league is about winning or losing. It doesn't matter what your stats are. As long as you're the quarterback on a winning team, you're going to be a star. It's as simple as that.' "'

Marker Vincent still putting up numbers [12:58 PM]
Olean Times Herald reports: '“He’s a very intelligent player,” coach Mike Mularkey pointed out. “The transition has been easy for him ... though he’d probably say different. But, watching him, he’s very comfortable back there. He made the two (interceptions) he did and had a chance for third if Nate (Clements, cornerback) hadn’t knocked it away. He’s one of those rare players that his age doesn’t seem to phase him ... he just keeps on trucking along.”'

Marker Clements making his case [9:05 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"(Defensive coordinator) Jerry Gray feels the same way I feel," Clements said. "You put your number one guy on their number one guy and call it hand ball and let's go. That's what we did."'

Marker Red zone play has Losman a little blue [9:05 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'They got away with the win. But failing to get TDs will hurt them against top teams, particularly on the road. They have to be more efficient. They need production from their playmakers - especially Eric Moulds, who was among the worst red-zone receivers in the league a year ago.'

Marker Team turns to Tampa [9:05 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"We were pleased with the way we played, but Monday is a new week and we're looking forward to Tampa Bay," defensive end Chris Kelsay said. "It's just the way this league is. You take each game a play at a time and each season a game at a time, and that's our approach. We're happy we won that game, but we've got to put it behind us."'

Marker Bills' Vincent makes switch to free safety look simple [5:01 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"I'm still learning, there's no question," Vincent said Sunday after Buffalo's impressive season-opening 22-7 victory over the Houston Texans. "I think that's what breathes the life into me, keeps me going. Not that I'm stale, but I'm still learning. I ask a lot of questions, and people might ask why. It's because I want to know. I take mental notes and I'm very critical of myself because every week I want to be the best defensive back on the field."'

Marker What are fans to make of Losman's debut? [5:00 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Everybody's calm demeanor strikes you. But I agree. Tackle Mike Williams talked at length about how even-keeled Losman was in the huddle, and I'm also shocked. I thought after his many meltdowns during training camp, that settling for field goals on his first four possessions would discourage J.P. But he just kept going back to work and looked like a savvy old pro out there.'

Marker Inside slant [4:55 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'So much for baby steps.'

Marker Strategy and personnel [4:54 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'Texans QB David Carr called Buffalo's defense the best he's faced, and it's easy to understand why.'

The Sports Network reports: 'At Tiger Stadium, the Saints will be the home team against the Miami Dolphins, Chicago Bears, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Carolina Panthers. In San Antonio, the Buffalo Bills, Atlanta Falcons and Detroit Lions will be the visitor.'

Marker When J.P. Losman Talks, People Listen! [9:56 PM]
WIVB-TV reports: 'That sort of unbridled honesty and enthusiasm makes J.P. enjoyable to cover, and more importantly will be fun for the fans. After many years in this business, hearing things like “one game at a time”, or “we have to give 110 percent”, and every other cliché you can imagine; it is nice to have someone who doesn’t have their filter set quite as high as most athletes.'

Marker What's Not to Like in Bills Opening Win? [9:56 PM]
WGRZ-TV reports: 'There will be plenty of ups and downs for this team, not just Losman, and we'll learn a lot more about just how good he and the offensive line are next week at Tampa Bay. But the start was as close to perfection as it gets, no matter which side of the coin you're looking at.'

Marker Payne's Homecoming [9:55 PM] reports: 'Payne was Houston's best defender leading the Texans with eight tackles against Buffalo. However, playing in front of family and friends can be difficult for Payne, especially when his team loses, as was the case Sunday.'

Marker Bills/Saints Moved To San Antonio [9:54 PM]
WGR-AM reports: 'I am a huge Willis McGahee fan. I think he's going to be very special this season, but his slow starts worry me a little. He takes a while to get warmed up and his style wears defenses down. I like that a lot, but I worry the team could get down a few scores before Willis warms up.'

Marker LB Spikes isn't apologizing for Bills dominating defense [5:40 PM]
AP reports: 'What's frightening is that Spikes believes they can do even better. "Yeah, it's a good start," he said. "But it's only the beginning."'

Marker Ask Him Yourself: Mike Mularkey [5:39 PM] reports: 'Offensively we had five penalties yesterday and four of them were on four red zone drives. We have to understand that there is no room for error down there. If we don't push ourselves out of the red zone, sometimes so far where it's hard to overcome, that will be a good start.'

Marker Ask Him Yourself: Tom Donahoe [5:38 PM] reports: 'With regard to the throwbacks, our plan was to try and wear them in San Diego, which is in November, but that has yet to be confirmed. If we don't wear the throwbacks in the San Diego game, another option we have considered is wearing them in a future home game, possibly with Denver. It would be difficult to do it with New Orleans because of the closeness of the game. We will make a decision shortly as to when the second appearance of the throwback uniforms will be. There is no question that they are sharp and they remind us of the great tradition of the Buffalo Bills.'

Marker Duke 'Preston' into Action [5:38 PM] reports: '"I kind of understand my role right now," Preston said after film review on Monday. "You've got to prepare like you're going to play and be ready to go when your number is called. I was just watching Chris and making sure he was getting back up and into the huddle. That's what I've come to expect this year and I'm looking forward to that responsibility."'

Marker Bills to Play Saints in San Antonio [5:37 PM] reports: 'The New Orleans Saints will return to Louisiana in late October to play four of their last five regular-season home games at Louisiana State University's Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge, NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue and Saints Owner Tom Benson announced today.'

Marker Saints to play four in Baton Rouge, three in San Antonio [5:12 PM]
Sportsticker reports: 'The next two scheduled home games against Buffalo in Week Four (October 2 or 3) and Atlanta in Week Six (October 16 or 17) will be played at the Alamodome. The Saints will also play their final home game at San Antonio on December 24 or 26 against Detroit.'

Marker Saints to play four games in Baton Rouge, three in San Antonio [5:12 PM]
AP reports: '``We had an excellent meeting this morning and quickly developed a dual consensus,'' Tagliabue said. ``The first was to continue to give priority to the needs of the region and the second to the scheduling of Saints games in a way that made sense under the total circumstances. ... We also appreciate the cooperation of the Alamodome officials and the hospitality of the people of San Antonio for their support of the Saints at this difficult time.'''

Marker HS Football 'Coach of the Week' - Week 2 [4:37 PM] reports: 'Coach Bob O’Connor of St. Joe’s has been named the Buffalo Bills High School Football “Coach of the Week” for the second weekend of the 2005 season (September 9-10).'

Marker Faithful moved to song by opener [4:10 PM]
Niagara Falls Reporter reports: 'The other guy's MVP: You gain 120 net yards, don't force any turnovers and then want awards? Ha.'

Marker Bills Dominate Texans 22-7 [4:09 PM] reports: 'The team has been talking about since the end of last season, the need to get off to a fast start. They even had t-shirts printed up so they wouldn't forget. They certainly remembered the horrors of last season's start and were ready not to repeat it without a dominating opening day win over Houston 22-7 before a sun drenched crowd at Ralph Wilson Stadium.'

Marker Bills Dominate In Every Way [4:07 PM] reports: 'All three phases were kicking on opening day, leading to a dominating win. Here are our position by position grades...'.
