Buffalo Bills News - August 21, 2005

Marker Bills get the party jumping [8:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Too bad J.P. Losman won't get to see the Green Bay Packers' defense any more this season.'

Marker Gandy shows he can match up with the league's best [8:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I think he does a pretty good job," Gbaja-Biamila said. "He's very athletic, and usually when you think of an O-lineman you hope that he's not as athletic so you can use your quickness. Even when I used my quickness to beat him around the corner he's able to recover, and that's what a left tackle needs. I remember playing him in Chicago, and I think he's improved a lot since then."'

Marker Losman's fun to watch, but Willis makes it great [8:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The guy is a superstar in the making. He started 11 games last season and gained 1,128 yards. He scored 13 touchdowns. This year, he's capable of a lot more - you fantasy nuts can put him down for, oh, 350 carries, 1,500 yards and 15-16 TDs.'

Marker Haddad makes his case to stick around [8:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"If they put me in a position to be successful, I can go out there and I can prove myself," Haddad said. "The more opportunities I get the more confident I am of what I can do."'

Marker Bills tickets say thanks for life-saving gift [8:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Marc donated a kidney to Michael earlier this month, nearly 14 years after donating bone marrow to him in another life-saving operation. Michael, now 26, still isn't sure that he has adequately repaid his brother. "There's no way to put a price on it," he said. "The best we could do was to buy him season tickets for the Bills."'

Marker Losman on the loose [5:03 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Running around the field as if he were playing sandlot football, the Buffalo Bills 24-year-old quarterback gave a taste of things to come, leading the Bills to a 27-7 victory over the Green Bay Packers Saturday night.'

Marker Kid Losman has plenty of moves [5:02 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'After watching the lead-footed Drew Bledsoe enable opponents to experience the joy of sacks the past three seasons, it was fun seeing a Bills quarterback who wasn't a sitting duck in the pocket. It was fun watching a young man on the move.'

Marker Losman runs the show [5:01 AM]
Niagara Gazette reports: 'Sure, Losman has a lot to learn. In fact, he may be too eager to run, taking off at the slightest sense of pressure. But opposing defenses can’t just plan on sending everyone at the quarterback and piling up the sacks like they did against Bledsoe.'

Marker New No. 7 shines [5:00 AM]
Toronto Sun reports: '"That guy (Losman) may be stealing our blocks," said Bills running back Willis McGahee, who eased concerns about his minor knee tweak from last week with a six-yard touchdown run. "Keep watching him ... You don't know what he can do at any point of the game."'

Marker Buffalo 27, Green Bay 7 [4:58 AM]
Sportsticker reports: 'J.P. Losman showed the Buffalo Bills that he can provide at least one thing his predecessor could not.'

Marker Buffalo 27, Green Bay 7 [4:58 AM]
The Sports Network reports: 'Lionel Gates led the Bills with 36 rushing yards on seven attempts and capped the scoring with a 14-yard touchdown run with 9:52 to play. Rian Lindell added two field goals, including a 54-yarder, in the win.'

Marker Bills Roll Packers 27-7 [4:57 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Losman, did at times, seem to have 'happy feet' and scrambled when sometimes it was not necessary to do so. One occurrence led to a safety after getting sacked in his own endzone. Lucky for him, the Packers were called for defensive holding to nullify the play. Bills coaches and players were vocal in letting their QB know that taking unnecessary hits is something to avoid. His scrambling though did lead to some nice gains as well throughout the first half.'

Marker Bills Throttle Packers 27-7 [4:56 AM]
WGRZ-TV reports: 'Without Favre, the Packers managed a mere 108 yards of offense the rest of the game.'

Marker Bills, Losman Topple Packers [4:56 AM]
WROC-TV reports: 'Down 7-0, the Bills responded with 27 consecutive points. They improved to 2-0, marking only the second time the team has opened a preseason with two straight wins -- and first since 1966.'

Marker Bills Dominate Packers [4:55 AM] reports: 'The defense had four sacks and an interception by Jabari Greer. Special teams saw a big kick return from ReShard Lee and a punt return from Drew Haddad, both for big yardage and place kicker Rian Lindell had two field goals, including a 54-yarder.'

Marker Special Teams [4:54 AM] reports: 'In a recurring theme dating back to last season, the Bills special teams flat-out dominated.'

Marker Moulds Fine After Big Hit [4:53 AM] reports: '"I'm feeling a lot better than I did after the hit," Moulds said after the game. "I just got the wind knocked out of me. It was nothing major."'

Marker Preseason Sellout Becoming the Norm [4:52 AM] reports: '"Our fans are very loyal fans and I've been saying that since I walked out of here a few years ago," said safety Lawyer Milloy. "It's a city that is so deserving of a championship and some success. I think that's what you're seeing. I think everyone is really excited."'

Marker Pavkers vs. Bills Game Photos [9:31 PM]
AP reports: "Buffalo Bills running back Willis McGahee (21) runs during the first half of the pre-season game against the Green Bay Packers at Ralph Wilson Stadium in Orchard Park, N.Y., Saturday, Aug. 20, 2005."

Marker Buffalo 27, Green Bay 7 [9:29 PM]
AP reports: "Playing the entire first half, Losman finished 7-of-14 for 59 yards, energized by a sellout crowd in his first home preseason game. He added 36 yards rushing, scoring on a 1-yard keeper set up by ReShard Lee's 69-yard kickoff return in the second quarter."

Marker Bills WR Moulds hurts ribs [9:28 PM]
AP reports: "Moulds did not return after being tended to on the sideline, and watched the final eight minutes of the first half from the bench. The Bills said he did not return in part because he was only scheduled to play in Buffalo's first three series."

Marker Lee has new life as a Bill [5:02 PM]
Brunswick News reports: '"I just need to stay focused and keep going," said Lee, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Charlie Lee of Brunswick. "I know the team has a couple more cuts upcoming, but I'm not really worried about that. My goal is just to become the best that I can be and then put the rest in God's hands."'

Marker Join us in the Chat Room tonight! [1:14 PM]
TBD reports: Last week we had over 98 fans in the chat room discussing the game! Don't miss out this week as the Packers roll into town and face off against the Bills in the second preseason game of 2005!

Marker Bills take second looks at RBs [8:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"It's pretty close," Mularkey said. "The scrimmage (against the Packers on Aug. 5) was a good indicator, but they'll get a fair amount of playing time when we get into these games. We'll switch them up so they're playing against equal talent. We'll get a better chance to see what they can do as these games unfold."'

Marker Favre not-so-eager for another look at Bills [8:54 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"It's stuff that's difficult to pick up," Favre said. "We had the right guys to pick up some of their blitzes, but we didn't because of their scheme and how they hit their blitzes. You watch them and you know just that little edge that guy took made it that much more difficult on (fullback) William (Henderson) to pick up this block. And that was a challenge for us. It will be for real Saturday. Not a regular-season game, but it will be a challenge for us."'

Marker Packers will be bombarded by the blitz [5:01 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'The goal this preseason is to overwhelm the Houston Texans, whom the Bills host in the regular season opener on Sept. 11, with things they have to scout and prepare for. "Our packages are so thorough, I feel that by the time we get through with the preseason, Houston won't be able to sit back and prepare for just one thing," Spikes said.'

Marker QB Holcomb eases into familiar role [5:00 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"I'm as competitive as anyone and would love to be playing, but my main goal at this stage of my career is to be with a winner," he said during a break from preparations for tonight's 6 o'clock exhibition game against the Green Bay Packers at Ralph Wilson Stadium. "We did a lot of losing in Cleveland and that got real old."'

Marker Packers prep for Bills’ blitzes [5:00 AM]
Green Bay Press Gazette reports: '“We’re still not really game planning, but we’re looking at it, that’s for sure,” center Mike Flanagan said. “We wouldn’t want to put up another number like eight sacks.”'
