Marker Transcript: Mike Mularkey Q&A Session [10:03 PM] reports: 'As far as the players, it progressively got better and better and they know that, especially offensively where you're going to be behind no matter what if it's a new system or what.

Marker A peak at the AFC East [3:10 PM] reports: With Losman in close pursuit of his job, Bledsoe will play well in 2004 and the Bills will get close to the .500 mark.

Buffalo beat the Patriots in the season opener 31-0 and finished up the season losing to the Patriots 31-0.

Marker Transcript: Jason Gildon Q&A Session [5:10 PM] reports: 'I was fortunate enough to be in Pittsburgh his whole time there. Mike's a great guy. He's a guy I get along with and as far as coming here to Buffalo, it's always nice to go somewhere where you know someone. I know him and a few guys he brought with him as well as a few players I had a privilege to play with. It helps, anytime you're out there looking for somewhere else to start over. It always helps to see a familiar face, someone you know. Someone that has gone through the same things you've gone through, and can relate and just ease the transition. From that standpoint, it definitely helps.'

Marker Bills Alumni Spotlight: Chris Spielman [1:23 PM] reports: '"I think that people respected the decision that I made," Spielman said. "It was an easy decision to make, but it still felt like you were letting people down. I certainly made the right decision, don’t get me wrong. I felt like the people in Buffalo, for the two years, treated me great and I loved playing there and being a part of it, but I still felt like I let them down. I guess it justified my decision to not play football, because I got a standing ovation. It made me feel good, obviously. I guess that I was accepted as a Buffalo Bill."'

CBS Sportsline reports: 'Gildon, who excelled in a 3-4 alignment, could be a pass rusher off the edge in a 4-3 but the Bills expect to get more out of Jeff Posey (5.5 sacks) in that role now that he's got a year under his belt in Jerry Gray's system.
