Buffalo Bills News - November 1, 2004

Marker Moorman's punts blow away Cards [8:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"It's not like I didn't know the forecast," Moorman said. "I knew it was going to be just like the Miami game. You go into it thinking you really can't change it, so you just go out and stick to your technique and try and keep the ball as low as you can while still maintaining some semblance of hang time. It seemed to work out."'

Marker Razing Arizona [8:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Last week, Willis McGahee talked about making the most of his opportunities, and he did just that against the Cards with 102 yards rushing and two touchdowns on 30 carries. A third touchdown was negated because of a holding penalty. Arizona's Emmitt Smith, a quality running back of some renown, declared after the game, "The kid is back."'

Marker Grading the Bills [8:54 AM]

Marker SUV kills pedestrian near Bills stadium [8:54 AM]

Marker A Blowout Win....Big Deal [7:23 AM]
Erie Times News reports: 'This game was basically an all-world sissy fight between two teams with fan bases that have seen some sorrowful times in recent years and in this season.'

Marker McGee, Moorman, Clements star for Bills in windy win [5:12 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Sure it was only Arizona, just as it was only winless Miami a couple of weeks ago, but any win is a good win for the Bills these days. This was a good win.'

Marker Moorman's punting accents stellar day for Bills' special teams [5:11 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'But perhaps better than any punter in Bills history, Moorman knows how to handle the howling gusts off of Lake Erie. On a day when Drew Bledsoe threw two touchdown passes and wasn't sacked, when Willis McGahee rushed for more than 100 yards for the second time in three weeks, and when Emmitt Smith was limited to just 2.9 yards per carry, a 175-pound punter may have been his team's most valuable player.'

Marker A Halloween treat for the Bills' faithful [5:10 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Highly respected coach Dennis Green may have eternally rebuilding Arizona on the upswing but the Cardinals fell prey to14 penalties, several special teams breakdowns, and a timely blast of good old-fashioned western New York fall weather.'

Marker McGee's play turned the tide for Bills [5:09 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'The opening coin flip. The Cardinals won, and they chose to take the ball rather than defend a goal. It was a colossal mistake by a team that isn't used to playing in inclement weather.'

Marker Who's that on the offensive line? [5:08 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'On about a half dozen plays, backup defensive tackle Justin Bannan substituted for Lawrence Smith at left guard to block on Willis McGahee runs. Late in the game, both Bannan and massive defensive tackle Sam Adams were used to block on back-to-back goal-line plays. It was an interesting use of personnel, and the Bills won the game, so you can't argue the merit of those moves. But so much for the careers of guys like Smith, Marcus Price, Mike Pucillo and Dylan McFarland — offensive linemen who were on the bench, watching Bannan and Adams play their positions.'

Marker Buffalo Bills report card [5:07 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Credit Mike Mularkey for working long hours last week on correcting the team's red-zone problems. After an 0-4 outing at Baltimore, the Bills scored four TDs in five chances. Special kudos to special teams coach Bobby April.'

Marker Bills secret weapon the difference vs. Cardinals [4:31 AM]
WGRZ-TV reports: 'Sure, Willis McGahee is looking like everything Donahoe and the Bills hoped he’d be when they rolled the dice on him knowing he wouldn’t even play in 2003 and maybe never at 100 percent, but that may not be Donahoe’s smartest move in the past several months. That move, which wouldn’t even bring a collective yawn from most fans, was Donahoe’s negotiating a 6-year contract extension with punter Brian Moorman that will average about $900,000 per season, not including bonuses.'

"Especially with the weather conditions, they (Arizona) knew we were going to run the ball the whole game," said Mularkey. "There was an eighth guy in the box the whole game so for him (Willis) to make the yards and get what he got done, I thought it was a credit to him and the whole offense."'

Marker Big Returns Lead to Points [4:27 AM] reports: 'On a day with harsh winds, field position was crucial and the Bills were able to win that battle throughout the game. Punter Brian Moorman played a large role in that battle, often punting into the stiff breeze. Moorman punted the ball seven times for an average of over 44 yards. Most of his punts were into the wind, and some were even out of the shadow of his own end zone.'
