Buffalo Bills News - August 28, 2005

Marker RB Lee among seven players cut by Bills [4:40 PM]
AP reports: 'The cuts leave Buffalo with a 70-player roster, including rookie tight end Kevin Everett and cornerback Kevin Thomas, who are on the physically unable-to-perform list. NFL teams must pare their rosters to 65 by Tuesday and get down to the regular-season maximum of 53 by Saturday, a day after the Bills close their preseason hosting Detroit.'

Marker Bills waive seven players [3:42 PM] reports: 'The Bills today announced that the team has waived P Steve Baker, WR Tony Brown, RB ReShard Lee, DB Rob Lee, DE Uyi Osunde, LB Daryl Towns, and QB Tory Woodbury.'

Marker The Bills Get The Jump On Cut Day [3:35 PM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Lee is no surprise as he's not been impressive since being signed away from Dallas. The emergence of 7th round pick Lionel Gates and the steady play of Shaud Williams sealed Lee's fate. It was thought Woodbury could challenege Shane Matthews for the number three QB slot and become a "slash" type player, but Woodbury was too eratic in camp.'

Marker Year of the quarterback [9:50 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'In the last 10 NFL seasons, a quarterback began his second year as the full-time starter for his team 12 times. Aside from Philadelphia's Donovan McNabb, who started six games in 1999, they all saw little or no time as rookies. Seven of those young QBs led their team to a record of .500 or better. Five of the 12 made the playoffs.'

Marker Preston emerges in long snap judgment [9:49 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The obvious advantage of having Preston do the job is it saves a spot on the roster. Dorenbos does not play another position. However, Dorenbos has proved he's very good at the job.'

Marker Super-sized Bills are worried, too [5:00 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"When I heard about it, it ran chills through my body," Bills offensive guard Chris Villarrial said of Herrion's death. "It makes you think what is important. They've been saying the weight issue for a while now, but until we find out the results, I guess we won't know. But when anything like this happens, like Korey Stringer (four years ago), it makes you take two steps back and ask, 'Is this all worth it?' It's a tragedy."'

Marker Bills, Bears dominate defensively [8:53 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Bills' defense, in fact, was the best offensive unit on the field.'

Marker Benson continues to elude Bears [8:52 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Parrish still has a cast on the wrist, and the common absence for a broken wrist is six to eight weeks. That would put the second-round draft pick out for at least the first two games of the season. The Bills have not given a timetable for his return except to say he's out for the preseason.'

Marker WGR grabs Coach; to hire big names [8:51 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Starting Sept. 12, Dickerson will make weekly appearances alongside Brad Riter and Paul Hamilton on WGR's 10 a.m. Monday program, "Extra Point."'

Marker Clements shows off worth to Bills [5:00 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'It was a game pitting two of the NFL's best defenses, making for some miserable offensive football. The teams combined for 10 three-and-out series in the first half.'

WGR-AM reports: 'Losman was average in this game going 9-of-18 for 82 yards and no interceptions. He only ran the ball once all night. Buffalo's only TD came when Clements jumped a route, picked off Chad Hutchinson and scored from 31 yards out. Takeo Spikes had a pick and lateraled to Clements who was pushed out of bounds at the three. A touchdown here and Buffalo wins, but on second down, Losman misses the snap, he runs back and takes a 20 yards sack instead of throwing the ball away. Rian Lindell converted a 44-yard field goal to give the Bills a 9-3 lead.'

TBD reports: Head on over to the chat room tonight to talk about the Bills vs. Bears preseason game with your follow fans! Our chat room discussions are very well attended, so there will be plenty of fans to talk to about the game as it happens!

Marker Bills and Bears figure to get physical [8:52 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The first half tonight should look a lot like a regular-season game. Both teams are expected to let many starters play a full half and a bit of the third quarter. Teams generally play their first unit more in the third preseason game than the fourth in order to reduce the risk that starters enter the season opener banged up. "That's the plan - the half and probably starting the third quarter, and see how many snaps we get in the third," Bills coach Mike Mularkey said. "But even by mid-second quarter you'll see (second-string) guys getting plugged in."'

Marker Hutchinson under the gun [8:51 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"It's the preseason," Hutchinson said to Chicago reporters when asked whether his future was riding on tonight's outing. "You make mistakes, you learn, you move on. That's why they call it preseason. I'm going to get better."'

Marker Gandy fired up for Bears game [5:00 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"He's a bitter, bitter, bitter, bitter man," said Bills new starting left guard, Bennie Anderson, who came over from the Baltimore Ravens. "Yeah he's angry. I thought I was an angry man."'

Chicago Sun Times reports: '"I ain't saying nothing,'' he said Monday while resting on a wooden bench outside the Halas Hall weight room as he removed equipment. "You can stand around all you want. I'm not going to say anything. Not this week. Not a word.'''

Marker Bears, Bills match stiff defenses in preseason [3:58 PM]
AP reports: 'So, please don't tell Mularkey that exhibition games are meaningless. He wants to sort out his team - let some players fighting for spots get time with the first team - and also win the game. "Anything you compete in you want to win. You don't go to the extent of game planning that you do in regular season, but you're still competing to win the game," he said.'

Marker Players say Bills camp got tougher [8:52 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"He got a pulse on the team after seeing where we went last year," veteran safety Troy Vincent said Wednesday. "In the offseason he prepared us by saying, "This is my team, and this is the way we're going to do things. If you don't like it, there's I-90.' "'

Marker Bills' brotherly love belies T.O.'s disruptions in Philly [5:01 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"A lot of it is preventive maintenance," Mularkey said, "knowing the track record prior to drafting or signing or bringing a player in. You shouldn't be shocked."'

Marker Gates earns long look as McGahee's backup [5:00 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"A lot of guys had projected me going in the third or fourth round. You slip to the seventh, and you have a lot of animosity. Every play, I want to run as hard as I can, as fast as I can and show people they really missed out on things."'

Marker Bears plan to play Hutchinson for most of game [4:59 AM]
Northwest Herald reports: 'The Bears plan to play the starters, including quarterback Chad Hutchinson, into the third quarter of their penultimate exhibition game.'
