Buffalo is 2-11 in their last thirteen road games so they will have to play a near error-free game in order to get their season back on track.'

Kabel, along with co-founder Matt Soreco, started the group during the 2001 offseason.'
Jets are a surprise, but not Edwards [1:45 PM]
Olean Times Herald reports: '“One of my pet peeves is don’t commit foolish fouls. Our players understand how important that is ... we stress it. We have officials at every practice during the preseason through right now. They throw the flag, we talk about it, I emphasize it. We put their numbers up on the board ... how many penalties you’ve had ... you can’t beat yourself. (Officials) come (to practices) three days a week and it’s just like a game. I write the down the penalties and after the meetings I write them down on the board. One thing players don’t want is to seem like they’re hurting the football team. And when you make a strong commitment to ‘This is what we’re about and this is what we’re going to do,’ they get it. After awhile, they don’t want to see their number up there, because it becomes, ‘Hey, why are you up there all the time.’”'

He hurt his left leg against New England, and it's believed there is a crack in a nonweight-bearing bone in the leg. "There's something there, but it's not weight bearing," Mularkey said. "It's not like he can't push off or be effective with it. But we want to be sure. It's a long season. We don't want to test anything that's not sound. So we're going to give it a day of rest and make some more decisions (today) on it."'
Schobel expects to make QB sacks [5:02 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"We're blitzing a lot and I've dropped more (into coverage) than I have in the past, but I'm not saying that's the reason for it," Schobel said before practice at Ralph Wilson Stadium on Wednesday. "Sacks are hard to get when you're behind, that's for sure, but I've always said that as long I'm getting pressure — like I have — the sacks will come."'
McGahee stays upbeat despite sitting [5:01 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"It's not frustrating for me," the 2003 first-round pick said. "Like I said before, if Travis (Henry) is moving the ball good, there's no need to take him out. Let him stay in his rhythm. You just have to wait your turn."'

Bledsoe at a loss to stop opponents' many sacks [4:57 AM]
Newark Star Ledger reports: 'Why so many sacks?
To be honest, it's been a group effort. A few of them have been attributed to missed assignments. One or two of them have been errors on behalf of myself and the receivers as far as breaking off the sight adjustments and me getting the ball out of my hands. Some of them have just been guys getting beat physically.'
