Buffalo Bills News - September 19, 2005

Marker Tripped up in Tampa [11:56 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'Talk about debunking a tease in one week.'

Marker Bills had blunders all around [11:56 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'On the second play of its final possession, with 3 1/2 minutes to play, the Bills had 73 yards and four first downs in less than 18 minutes’ possession time.'

Marker Plenty of lowlights for Bills in loss to Buccaneers [11:54 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'For one series in the fourth quarter, head coach Mike Mularkey benched Losman in favor of veteran Kelly Holcomb. “I put Kelly and Shaud (Williams, backup running back) in there to see if we could get a spark at both positions. We were stagnant all day and (I was) just trying to get something going.” To which Losman responded, “I’m upset ... I don’t want to share this position. But this is a team game and I realize I’m young and the coaches know what’s best for me.”'

Marker Bills-Bucs Postgame Notes [11:24 AM] reports: 'With today's loss, Buffalo snapped their 5-game winning streak against NFC opponents.'

Marker Steam rolled [9:01 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'For the next three hours, the Buccaneers seemed to know exactly where the Bills wanted to go, they usually were waiting for the Bills to get there, and Losman couldn't figure out what to do about it.'

Marker Cadillac gets good mileage on Bills' defense [9:00 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"He broke our back today, especially on those long runs," Bills free safety Troy Vincent said. "He is a guy that you can't count on going down until you are sitting on top of him."'

Marker This horror show has many stars [8:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Sorry, but when Josh Reed is your most effective offensive weapon, something is wrong.'

Marker Bucs' D proves its mettle [8:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Bucs played like they had something to prove, holding the Bills to just 147 total yards - only 47 on the ground - and keeping the opportunistic Buffalo offense out of the end zone for the first time in eight games, dating to a 29-6 defeat at New England last Nov. 14. The Bucs, in fact, have not allowed a touchdown on defense in two games this season, having forced five turnovers in last weekend's 24-13 victory at Minnesota.'

Marker Run game slows to a crawl [8:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Right tackle Mike Williams got a scare when his left leg was rolled up in a pile of players in the third quarter. The team said Williams suffered an ankle injury, though he didn't walk with a noticeable limp in the locker room after the game.'

Marker A leap backward [8:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Clad again in their throwback uniforms, the Bills turned in a road performance that was a throwback to the worst moments of the Bledsoe era.'

Marker Grading the Bills [8:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Offense didn't come up with any solution to Bucs' defensive scheming. Defense had trouble adjusting to runs up middle.'

Marker Grading the Bucs [8:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Gruden made good use of his 3:17 a.m. wake-up calls. Kiffin made Losman's life miserable. Maybe these Bucs are for real.'

Marker Bills Offense Never Gets Going [7:25 AM]
Lakeland Ledger reports: '"They blitzed more than we expected them to," said wide receiver Eric Moulds. "We expected them to come out and play similar to what they did at Minnesota in the first game. But they came out and totally shocked us as far as when they started blitzing. They had a great game plan and they executed it."'

Marker Road woes return in painful fashion for Buffalo [5:05 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Before padding his statistics during one final possession in garbage time, Losman was a mere 5 of 18 for 39 yards, including 3 of 10 on third down throws, many alarmingly off target even when he had time to throw.'

Marker With slow offense, Bills need a defense better than perfect [5:04 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'The Buccaneers ran for 11 first downs and two touchdowns. They hogged the ball for nearly 39 minutes, leaving Buffalo's wilting defense looking like my lawn in this summer of little rain.'

Marker Long day of lessons for Losman [5:03 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'True, this loss can't be pinned solely on Losman, but the kid has to shoulder much of the blame.'

Marker The two-minute read [5:02 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Turning point: J.P. Losman running out of the back of the end zone for a safety.'

Marker Buffalo Bills report card [5:01 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'This is exactly what Bills fans will have to endure with J.P. Losman this season.'

Marker Taking Their Licks [5:01 AM]
Erie Times News reports: 'With the offense sputtering to even gain a first down, Tampa was able to dominate the time of possession and keep Buffalo’s defense on the field for nearly two-thirds of the game. Even for a solid defense like the one the Bills possess, asking that much of the unit will eventually lead to them breaking down and running out of gas.'

Marker Bills Offense Just Couldn't Get It Going [5:00 AM]
Tampa Tribune reports: '"I think it was a lesson learned," Buffalo coach Mike Mularkey said. "They were more physical and they executed better than we did. This is what can happen when you play a good football team. It's a wake-up call."'

Marker Losman looks lost vs. Bucs [4:59 AM]
Bradenton Herald reports: '"They had a good scheme. They knew where we would be and they watched my eyes the whole game," Losman said. "We came in high as a kite, but (the Bucs) matched our physicalness and intensity."'

Marker Bills' Losman learns teacher Wyche knows best [4:57 AM]
USA Today reports: '"I saw inexperience in 100 different ways," Wyche said. "Unfortunately, you can't coach it or carry it in your hip pocket. It's what young ones go through. We're not disappointed, and we're not disenchanted."'

Marker Bucs Drive Cadillac To 19-3 Win Over Buffalo [4:56 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'In my view, I was fine with Losman being replaced, but to put him back in was puzzling. I know that every time a QB is taken out of the game, there is a chance for a possible QB controversy. But why if he just doesn't have it on a given game, can't Holcomb come in and see what he has to offer without a controversy starting up? Let either JP finish the game and struggle through it, or let Holcomb come in and see what happens. To pull Losman, then pull Holcomb a series later doesn't make much sense. I don't by that he needed to "cool down".'

Marker Bucs Dominate Bills [4:55 AM] reports: 'The Bills offense registered only 8 first downs, seven coming in the second half.'

Marker Pair of Bills Starters Injured [4:54 AM] reports: 'Starting right tackle Mike Williams left the game early in the third quarter with an ankle injury and starting middle linebacker London Fletcher was held out of the second half with a hamstring injury.'

Marker Postgame quotes [7:15 PM] reports: Editor's note: Scroll to bottom to see Bills quotes.

Marker Defense Melts; Offense Stinks In Loss [7:13 PM] reports: 'Quarterback: J.P. Losman was absolutely awful in this one. He finished the game with just 113 yards on 12 of 19. 74 of them on the final drive. Kelly Holcomb relieved him for a series and went three and out. Grade F-'

Marker Bills Wilt In Tampa 19-3 [4:42 PM] reports: 'Remember the dominating performance by the Bills on opening day? Well the Buccaneers put on an even more dominating showing in their home opener as they whipped the Bills in the Florida heat 19-3.'

Marker Caddy, Defense Stampede Buffalo [4:40 PM] reports: 'Pick a defensive star if you will – Ronde Barber, Derrick Brooks, Shelton Quarles or Greg Spires would be respectable choices – but this was the epitome of a team effort. Though Barber, Brooks and Kelly each missed on game-turning interception chances on three of Losman’s first five passes, the Bucs managed to shut down just about everything Losman hoped to do.'
