Buffalo Bills News - October 13, 2003

Marker Earn first one in a big way [4:36 AM]
Newark Star Ledger reports: 'The Jets played one of their most spirited halves of the season in the first 30 minutes, holding Buffalo to just 112 net yards, and just 35 yards rushing. Buffalo was 2-of-9 on third-down conversions in the first two quarters.'

Marker Minus star, Jets show sack attack [4:35 AM]
Newark Star Ledger reports: '"We knew Bledsoe would stay in the pocket," Ellis said. "He's very brave, so he just stays in there -- he'll hold the ball, try to get the ball downfield. We were able to get some heat on him."'

Marker For Testaverde, it's about winning [4:34 AM]
Newark Star Ledger reports: 'The three TDs were the most Testaverde has had in a game since he threw five scoring passes in that memorable Monday night victory over the Miami Dolphins on Oct. 23, 2000. He was modest -- even sheepish -- about the three TDs.'

Marker Becht rebounds big-time [4:33 AM]
Newark Star Ledger reports: 'The Jets simplified their running game and it resulted in a season-high 118 yards. It should be noted that Buffalo entered the game allowing 120 yards rushing per game.'

Marker Jets rail [4:32 AM]
Newark Star Ledger reports: 'Dumbest play: The Bills were stuffed on a fourth-and-one from the Jets' 34-yard line trailing 3-0 in the first quarter. MLB Marvin Jones stopped the play for a minus-1. A field goal would've tied the score and given Buffalo some confidence. The kick would've been from 51 yards out but K Rian Lindell has the leg, had perfect conditions and the field-goal friendly FieldTurf.'

Marker Jets blow away Bills [4:30 AM]
Middletown Times Herald Record reports: 'But the biggest difference was that the Jets were a confident football team yesterday. Confident on defense they made the Eric Moulds-less Bills look like the Jets offense from Weeks 1 through 4 as well as offense.'

Marker Defense finally shows up for Jets [4:29 AM]
Middletown Times Herald Record reports: '"We played the way we're capable of playing today," Cottrell said. "That was it, in a nutshell."'

Marker At last, a victory [4:28 AM]
White Plains Journal News reports: 'The Jets ran for a season-high 118 yards, and their 71 yards in the first half were more than they'd gained on the ground in any single game this season. It was due in part to the running game that a team that had scored just one touchdown in eight tries inside the red zone scored three touchdowns once it got inside the Bills 20.'

Marker Bills thrown for loss [4:27 AM]
White Plains Journal News reports: 'Whether it was the loss of Abraham, the desperation born from an 0-4 start or simply a case of fortuitous timing, the emergence of the Jets' defense couldn't have come at a better time.'

Marker Jets-Bills notebook [4:26 AM]
White Plains Journal News reports: 'Thumbs down: The Buffalo offense, playing without injured deep threat Eric Moulds, caved. The Bills gained only 193 yards. Offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride insists that the team can win by relying mainly on the pass. Buffalo tried only 19 runs, gaining 53 yards, and only four in a second half they began while trailing only 13-3.'

Marker Jets overwhelm Bills for first win [4:25 AM]
New Haven Register reports: 'Said Buffalo linebacker London Fletcher: "Since my being here, this is my most embarrassing loss. ... There is no way to sugar-coat it or hide it, its the bottom."'

Marker Gregg Williams Quotes [4:24 AM] reports: '"We didn't make any plays. That was the thing we talked about at half time. We talked about the packages that we'd use. We were a play or two away of getting back in the ball game and we gave them two really quick plays right off the bat. We were losing negative yardage in the first series. We had a turnover and gave up a punt. We gave up a quick score. When you look at all those other stats, that's just all they are. The score is the most important stat and we didn't play well in the scoring area of the field."'

Marker Drew Bledsoe Quotes [4:23 AM] reports: '"I didn't expect to be 3-3. I still feel we are a better team then what we've done the last four games. We've got to get it turned around. Everyone on our team has to address what their doing. We've got to play better."'

Marker Coy Wire Quotes [4:22 AM] reports: '"This is a tough league to play in. Meeting a team that's 0-4 has all the potential in the world. If you don't play your best game then it's going to be tough to win. They played better than us tonight."'

Marker Ruben Brown Quotes [4:21 AM] reports: '"I'm just kind of shocked right now. I know our team's better than what we've been producing the last couple of games. I am just disappointed and down right now because I know we have a better team than what people have been seeing on TV. We're way better but we got to do it to be better."'

Marker Bobby Shaw Quotes [4:20 AM] reports: '"If you get 58 guys that are ready to fight and kick and scratch and go to war, whatever you need to do to win a game, then I like my chances. We have that here. It's just a matter of being consistent with it. I'm not going to panic in terms of saying the season is shot. We've lost one game and we have to come back Wednesday ready to fight and ready to go and get ready for the next week."'

Marker Antoine Winfield Quotes [4:19 AM] reports: '"It's frustrating. You want to go out and win every game. At least compete. I don't think we competed this game. They beat us 30-3. We didn't make a play to even give ourselves a chance to get into the game. That's what makes it frustrating".'

Marker London Fletcher Quotes [4:18 AM] reports: '"There are a lot of wholes that need to be filled. When you only win one out of your last four ball games there's a lot of looking in the mirror that you have to do, a lot of things that we need to fix. Since I've been here, my year and a half here, this was the most embarrassing lose. (We) truly embarrassed everybody associated with the Buffalo Bills, from the owner on down to the fans. The way we played today was an embarrassment to everybody who's a Buffalo Bills fan."'

Marker Josh Reed Quotes [4:17 AM] reports: '"We weren't able to capitalize off of some of the things that they did. We gave up some big plays. We have to come back and regroup on that and not let it happen."'

Marker Jets Get One, Blowout Bills 30-3 [4:16 AM] reports: 'These Bills ain't roaming home. They are stumbling. They were pushed around in the trenches. Give credit to the Green and White's big nasties. The Jets offensive line gashed holes and protected well while the D-line sacked Drew Bledsoe seven times and held Travis Henry to only 53 yards on 18 carries.'

Marker The Bills Go Through The Motions Getting Blasted By The Jets [4:15 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Sunday's loss is the first time in my memory that a Gregg Williams team has quit on him. There was no emotion as this team didn't seem to care.'

Marker Jets Fly Past Bills [4:14 AM] reports: 'Vinny Testaverde threw three touchdown passes and the Jets defense sacked Drew Bledsoe a season high seven times and held Travis Henry to 53 yards rushing.'

Marker Jets come back to life [4:13 AM]
Jets Confidential reports: 'Speaking of direction, the Bills don't like the way they're headed. After a 2-0 start that had some suggesting their were of championship timber, they have lost three of four, have a dysfunctional offense, and have become the closest team the Jets can start to think of overhauling in the AFC East standings.'
