Buffalo Bills News - August 15, 2005

Marker Process With Losman [4:57 AM] reports: 'The Bills did defeat the Colts 17-10 in their first preseason game, but it had little to do with the offense. A special teams blocked punt for a touchdown, and defensive support were the major helping hand in this one. In fact, Losman was never settled on his feet, and appeared to bounce in the pocket like a pinball. He even took off a couple of times to try to get rid of some of his nervousness.'

Buffalo News reports: '"I really like where they are, and I'm not saying that because I have an affinity for the Buffalo Bills," said the team's Hall of Fame former coach, Marv Levy, prior to Saturday's preseason opener against the Indianapolis Colts.

I can't wait to say, "Gentlemen, start your engines,' because my son is going to be right with me looking down from above."'

Marker Bills Special Teams, Defense at it Again [7:21 AM] reports: '"I think J.P. just settled down as the half progressed," said Evans.

Marker Bills ready to saddle up, start preseason [12:30 PM]
Buffalo News reports: '"It'll be more than a quarter," Mularkey said. "As much experience as he can get will obviously be a positive. The Green Bay scrimmage obviously helped. Every snap that he's had, whether it's been in mop-up duty or in these preseason games, is a learning experience. He'll get something out of each one of them, and I think he has. We'll make sure he gets enough to get comfortable once he gets going into the season."'

But the odds are pretty good Greer will nail down the No. 3 cornerback job.'

Cicci said Kelly is very supportive despite the recent loss of his 8-year-old son Hunter, who suffered from Krabbe disease, an inherited degenerative disorder of the central and peripheral nervous systems. “He goes to every race he can, but he’s had to deal with the situation with Hunter,” Cicci said. “There was a lot of care that had to be given to Hunter, and it was a big responsibility for his wife, so he had to stay back and help her a lot of the time. He’s a very good family man.”'
