Marker Losman ready for test against stingy Buccaneers [2:52 PM]
AP reports: '"Looking back, you count their win last week and they've won nine of their last 11. The last 10 games (2004) they averaged 28.6 points a game on offense. The difference was they had Bledsoe. They have a really good offense, and they're not going to take that offense and let Bledsoe get away if they don't think this guy is good."'

Marker Buffalo Bills at Tampa Bay Buccaneers Preview [2:50 PM] reports: 'It will be interesting to see how Losman and a revamped Buffalo offensive line will fare against a veteran Buccaneer defense with a corps of All-Pro 30-somethings Derrick Brooks, Simeon Rice and Ronde Barber. Chances are Losman will remain somewhat under wraps, Griese wont remind anyone of Peyton Manning, and the game will be low-scoring.'

Marker Rebuilding by the Bay [9:04 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"You look at the salary cap spreadsheets that you're handed, and yeah, you know the inevitable is going to happen. When you're $20 million to $30 million over, whatever it is, you've got to get under the cap. . . . We sacrificed some draft picks. And to be honest with you, the last seven, eight years, we haven't netted much from the draft here."'

Marker Bills figure nicely in NFL stats [9:03 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Bills players spent 30 minutes last week in a mass autograph signing session in an effort to raise awareness by fund raising for victims of Hurricane Katrina. More than 200 autographed items, including a J.P. Losman jersey, gloves from Eric Moulds and shoes from Nate Clements, London Fletcher and Lawyer Milloy, will be auctioned on the NFL Auction eBay Web site starting Thursday. All proceeds go to the relief effort.'

Marker Bills guard Anderson senses the confidence [5:00 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"I see a very talented locker room, and I think it's going to be a snowball effect for us," Anderson said the other day, talking about the positive vibes bouncing up and down One Bills Drive following Buffalo's convincing 22-7 wipeout of Houston. "The more we win, the better we'll look winning."'

Marker Ex-coach makes return to Tampa [4:59 AM]
St. Petersburg Times reports: 'Wyche suffers from cardiomyopathy, a heart disease that he said will force him to undergo a transplant in two to four years.'

Marker JetBlue Fly-Away Winner Announced [9:43 PM] reports: 'Brian was selected as the JetBlue Fly-Away winner on and he and his wife will fly out Saturday afternoon, courtesy of JetBlue Airways. The couple also receives two nights of hotel accommodations and of course, tickets to the Bills-Buccaneers game on Sunday afternoon at Raymond James Stadium.'

Marker Bills Help Hurricane Victims [5:09 PM] reports: 'Looking for a way to bring awareness and raise money to those victims of the Hurricane Katrina tragedy, the Bills players took part in a 30-minute signing session on Saturday, September 10 prior to their season opener against the Houston Texans.

The autographed items will be auctioned on the NFL Auction Ebay website with 100 percent of the proceeds donated to the Bush-Clinton Katrina Fund.'

Marker Gruden likes direction Bucs are heading [11:45 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'Hes beginning his eighth NFL season and is STILL the youngest head coach in the league.'

Marker Bucs' Rice puts Gandy in spotlight [8:51 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"He's very good," said Bills coach Mike Mularkey. "His specialty is pass rushing off the edge. He gets off the snap extremely well. Being on the road and the crowd noise, it's important that Mike Gandy gets off. We're very aware of him and we'll do whatever we have to to handle him in the passing game, because he's a very good player."'

Marker Bills defense wants to park 'Cadillac' in Tampa [8:51 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I'm impressed with what he's done, especially over the preseason and then seeing what he's done last week," Spikes said. "It was a good showing by him. He's so quick and powerful, and he has the ability to keep his feet on contact once somebody hits him. Most players whenever you make contact they always seem to stop their feet. But he's a perfect example of somebody who never stops his feet and that's why he breaks a lot of tackles."'

Marker Lack of quality targets is driving Carr's rough start [8:51 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Bills kept seven wide receivers on their 53-man roster. My understanding is that five is the norm, and six is the exception. What kind of precedent exists for a team keeping seven wide receivers on the roster?'

Marker Bills defense will be tough test for Buccaneers [6:13 AM]
Orlando Sentinel reports: 'A secondary with Lawyer Milloy and converted cornerback Troy Vincent at safety and rising star Nate Clements at corner completes a unit that looks better than the one that finished No. 2 in total defense and No. 3 against the pass in 2004. The Bills averaged 36 points in their last seven games last season despite an offense that ranked 25th in the NFL. The Bills had a league-high 39 takeaways.'

Marker Buffalo's defensive statement has Buccaneers taking notice [5:00 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"I think obviously looking back at last year and then their first game this year, they're tremendously talented and they have a great scheme," Griese said. "They have a lot of speed at the linebacker position, they have two guys up front who are really good at stopping the run and two guys on the edges who are good at rushing the passer. They do some zone blitzing, they play man-to-man coverage, they do all-out blitzing. They mix it up well."'

Marker Down But Not Out [4:59 AM]
Tampa Tribune reports: '"For the Buffalo Bills, I think it's pretty much a win-win," said a tongue-in-cheek Wyche, the Bills' quarterbacks coach. "They're selling the idea to get to the game early, buy more hotdogs, hamburgers and beer because Sam could keel over at any minute and you don't want to miss that because it probably won't show up on replay and ESPN that night."'
