Marker Panthers Notebook [6:06 AM]
Winston Salem Journal reports: '"That's the part I feel we lack right now. Jim Kelly would jump up and get in somebody's face if they didn't run the right route. He'd let them know it. Thurman would stare down the offensive linemen like he was getting ready to shoot them if they didn't block the right guy or if they left a guy unblocked in practice. Those guys obviously had the right to do that because they were so successful. We have a lot of guys here that are young and haven't made that move, that step into leadership yet."'

Marker That's not smell of success coming from Bills [4:49 PM] reports: What a long, tumbling fall it's been for a Bills franchise that has proudly earned its way to four Super Bowl games and has been one of the league's true models for perennial success.

Marker Gregg Williams press conference (12/5) [9:53 AM] reports: "I will disagree, and say [Larry Centers and Jay Riemersma] are adequate [blockers for the run]. Larry Centers, has, and has been, a good blocker in our system, and that's another thing you'll see us package things out and sometimes have success of bringing three, four wides and still running the football. It basically comes down to the five guys up front most of the time, because if the formation that comes into the ballgame, it dictates how many people you have to have in come in and block anyway."
