Marker Leonhard Anxious for Opportunity [2:52 PM] reports: '"It's always been the same way," said Leonhard. "There are always going to be that certain group of people that only look at your measurables and how big and fast you are. Those are the people that obviously don't think I can make it, but I think there are a lot of people that are out there that realize that if you can play football, you can play football. I just hope there are enough of them on this coaching staff that if I go out there and do what I feel I'm capable of doing I'll have a real chance."'

Marker Inside the Herd: TE Mark Campbell [5:28 PM] reports: 'Everything's going great and I appreciate your concern. I think that this season we'll start off how we ended last season. We won eight of our last 10 and I think we started scoring more points as an offense and we started being a lot more productive. I think you're going to see us start faster this year, even with a new quarterback in J.P. Losman. He's going to bring some other things to the table that will equal points. I think my role in that is I want to be there for J.P. as much as possible. A lot of times the tight ends run shorter routes and I want to be there for J.P. so he can make some easy throws and build some confidence, and I'm sure he's going to get the ball to the other playmakers as well. But a big emphasis we've made is spreading the ball around and being a more well-balanced team.'

Marker Drew and J.P. rank 25, 27 on this QB list [5:08 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '27. J.P. Losman (Buffalo). If all goes well, I'll be rating him much higher in preseason 2006.
