Marker Blitz baffling Bledsoe, Bills [8:01 PM]
AP reports: 'During that span, Bledsoe has been sacked 24 times once for every 10 dropbacks for 185 yards. And in four of those games, all losses, he's failed to complete a pass longer than 21 yards.'

Marker Bills Glad To Be Home [8:00 PM] reports: '"We have to get something going," tight end Mark Campbell explained. "At what point in time do you say enough is enough and say let's go?"'

Marker Bills Coach Gregg Williams Previews Houston [7:59 PM] reports: '"We're back at home. We're still in the mix. Every game is the most important game. This week becomes the most important game that we have. We have a lot of areas on our football team that are playing really strong. We just have to get a couple of the other (weaker) ones fixed and we'll be right back in the mix again."'

Marker Quarterback Drew Bledsoe Previews Houston [7:58 PM] reports: '"We actually had some stuff last week and got some plays called that could have been very effective for us against the blitz. If you get the ball out quick and split it then there's nobody left out deep. We have to be able to continue to do that. We had one play set up throwing it deep down the field to Bobby Shaw. If I were able to put a little more air on that it might have turned into a big play. When you're in a type of game like that, when they are going to come after you on every play, you have to hit one play. You have to get the ball out. Somebody has to break a tackle and they can go the distance, and that will discourage the defense from having that attitude and that type of game plan against you. We didn't get those plays made so they kept coming after us."'

Marker Bills Make Roster Moves [7:57 PM] reports: 'Also, running back Ken Simonton has been re-signed to the Bills practice squad while wide receiver Jerel Myers had been released from it.'

Marker Ask Safety Pierson Prioleau [7:56 PM] reports: 'Here's your chance to find out more about Bills free safety Pierson Prioleau.'

Marker Buffalo Bills Conference Calls [7:55 PM] reports: '“We’re pretty close to desperation mode. We have got to start winning immediately. We’re 4-5 and offensively we haven’t played well for a little while. So offensively we’ve got to get something going. It doesn’t matter who we’re playing, we just have to produce more offensively than we have in the last few weeks. I’m sure the Texans will look at both what the Chiefs and the Cowboys did against our offense and what they had success with. I’m sure that they’ll use some of those same concepts and same types of schemes. It’s up to us to address the problems that we’ve had offensively and get those things fixed. Otherwise, we are going to continue to see the same things.”'

Marker Bills lose DT Edwards for season [3:22 PM]
The Sports Network reports: 'The three-year veteran has missed four straight games after being hurt on October 3, in practice and will be placed on injured reserve.'

Marker Bills Alumni Spotlight: Scott Hutchinson [3:18 PM] reports: Hall of Fame running back O.J. Simpson rushed for 10,183 yards and scored 70 touchdowns for the Bills. He also brought five draft choices to Buffalo with his 1978 trade to the San Francisco 49ers. The first? University of Florida defensive end Scott Hutchinson.

Marker Modern-era 25 semi-finalists for Class of 2004 announced [2:07 PM] reports: Steve Tasker (Special Teams/WR – 1985-86 Houston Oilers, 1986-97 Buffalo Bill) and Ralph Wilson (Owner – 1959-present Buffalo Bills) made the list. Kent Hull, Chuck Knox & Darryl Talley did not.

Marker Bills DT Edwards to miss rest of season [11:49 AM]
AP reports: Buffalo Bills backup DT Ron Edwards will miss the rest of the season after having surgery Wednesday to repair a torn rotator cuff.

Marker Playing hurt a real pain for Moulds [8:52 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"It's tough," said Moulds, the Buffalo Bills' veteran wide receiver. "Everything I do as a receiver is predicated on exploding. If you can't explode, then you're basically in a situation where you're depending on your instincts from playing the last eight years to get you through it."'

Marker Pinpoint precision [5:15 AM]
Houston Chronicle reports: 'After nine games, Stanley is leading the NFL with 22 punts dropped inside the opponents' 20-yard line, a pace that would break the league record of 39 set by Baltimore's Kyle Richardson in 1999. Of Stanley's 48 punts this season, only 16 -- or one in every three -- have been returnable.'

Marker Defense suffers in year two [5:14 AM]
San Antonio Express News reports: 'The only relief in sight is that the offenses, particularly the rushing offenses, of the next three teams aren't particularly daunting. Nevertheless, the Texans will visit Buffalo to face one of the league's weakest ground games this Sunday, then host two middling backfields-by-committee when the Patriots and Falcons visit Houston. So there is hope.'

Marker Bledsoe's the man, warts and all [5:13 AM]
WGRZ-TV reports: 'Bledsoe must play better, no question, but it says here he will, when other areas around him, including coaching, improve. That may not happen this season, but it doesn’t mean the season is a waste. Donahoe didn’t expect to go from 3-13 to 13-3 in two seasons anyway, and it’s almost a shame the first two games masked the problems that were here all the time.'

Marker Drew Bledsoe's parents on the Today Show [5:12 AM]
WGRZ-TV reports: 'Bennett says his 10th grade teacher, Mac Bledsoe, reinforced that belief. As did his classmate, Drew Bledsoe.'

Marker Drew Bledsoe’s parents honored on The Today Show [5:11 AM]
WHEC-TV reports: 'Drew made a surprise appearance on the show and gave Bennett an autographed Bills jersey. Drew says teachers are the real heroes. “As football players we're held up as hero's and people know all about what we do, but the real heroes are the teachers that make an impact on kids on a daily basis and it's neat to see my parents being recognized for doing that.”'

Marker Bledsoes in NY [5:10 AM] reports: 'Mac, Barbara and Drew Bledsoe were guests of Katie Couric (NBC's Today Show) on November 11, 2003. The event was a special reunion for Mac and Barbara with a former student and classmate of Drew's.'

Marker Tops Game Ball Winner: Aaron Schobel [5:09 AM] reports: 'To date this season, the third-year veteran from TCU has posted 36 tackles, 4.5 sacks, and one interception. In addition, he has accumulated seven quarterback pressures and six quarterback hits to lead the Bills pass rush.'

Marker Eden's Doug Beetow Named Bills HS Football [5:08 AM] reports: 'Head coach Doug Beetow of Eden High School has been named the Buffalo Bills’ high school football “Coach of the Week” for the tenth weekend of the 2003 season (Nov. 7-8). Beetow led Eden (10-0) to a 45-33 victory over rival Southwestern HS (8-2) in the Section VI Federation Class B championship playoff game last Saturday at Ralph Wilson Stadium.'

Marker Buffalo Bills Scouting Report [5:07 AM] reports: 'Technically, the Bills still have a chance to make the playoffs. With games at home against the Texans, Colts, Jets and Dolphins and away games at the Giants, Titans and Patriots, there is plenty of time for the Bills to get themselves back in the playoff hunt. With five losses, their margin for error is slim. But with one of the NFL's strongest defenses and an offense that could quickly catch on fire, they have as good a chance of making a run as any team in the league. Unfortunately, the Bills have shown little in the past two weeks to show that they're trying to turn things around.'

Marker Bills Offense Should Mutiny [1:52 PM]
WIVB-TV reports: 'Drew deserves a huge chunk of the blame, but so do his teammates. The offensive line did not hold up well in Dallas on Sunday. Eric Moulds said that several players were responsible for missing blitz pick-ups. But, I believe that Offensive Coordinator Kevin Gilbride should shoulder most of the blame. His play-calling has been atrocious. The offensive line, the running back, and maybe even Bledsoe have to be ready for a mutiny.'

Marker Williams and Gilbride must share blame with Beldsoe [11:36 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'Oh, the Bills might suck it up for the final seven games as a show of solidarity for their embattled head coach and his struggling offensive staff. But don’t count on it. This turkey appears cooked.'

Marker Another manic Monday for Bills [8:53 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"We're aren't pointing fingers at anybody," defensive tackle Pat Williams said. "Everybody is still staying together. We just ain't winning."'

Marker Bills need someone new calling plays [8:52 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Bills had 11 first-down plays in the second half. They ran on four of them.'

Marker Bills player reports theft of monitor from Hummer [8:51 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Bills safety Lawyer Milloy reported to Buffalo police that sometime between 4 p.m. Thursday and 7 a.m. Friday, someone broke the rear driver's side window of his 2003 Hummer and took a 7-inch color monitor valued at $1,500 from the driver's headrest.'

Marker Wannstedt will wait till Wednesday [8:04 AM]
ESPN reports: WR Eric Moulds is still bothered by a groin injury and expects to play hurt the rest of the season. "I'm basically about 80 percent," Moulds said Monday, a day after he managed just five catches for 32 yards in Buffalo's 10-6 loss at Dallas.

Marker Frustrated Bills aren't making excuses [5:20 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'With three more sacks leading to two fumbles at Dallas, Bledsoe is taking more shots than 50 Cent. He has accounted for 14 turnovers himself this season and on Sunday averaged a minuscule 3.0 yards per attempt, nearly four below his average.'

Marker Simply put, Bills lack the skills [5:19 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Bledsoe isn’t the only member of the offense who lacks speed. Most of his teammates do, too. Eric Moulds can motor but the Bills lack a speedy wideout on the other side to complement him. The team misses Peerless Price more than most observers expected. Top running back Travis Henry isn’t slow, but he doesn’t have the speed to consistently turn the corner.'

Marker Is this worse than 3-13 in 2001? [5:18 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'That rose you spoke of is now a dying plant in need of water, fertilizer, sunshine and, most importantly, a new gardener. Unless Williams can go 6-1 down the stretch, and he’s given us no reason to have faith that he will, he’ll be packing his air horns and the Bills will be back to square one. But hey, nobody should be catatonic with shock. The NFL is a league of teams du jour. Obviously, everybody overrated Buffalo’s talent moves, starting at the top with Donahoe.'
