Marker Inside the Herd: LB Jeff Posey [6:32 PM] reports: 'How frustrating is it for the defense to repeatedly see the offense go three and out? And do you verbally say anything to the offense to inspire them to do better next time their out on the field?
Jeff Posey: As a team we are always encouraging each other. We encourage the offense saying "we will get them next time." As a team we just comfort and encourage each other. They also encourage us when we are on defense.'

Marker Falcons hope they won't be hamstrung by Vick [3:46 PM]
AP reports: 'The game at Orchard Park is an early-season test for two non-conference teams with playoff-contending hopes, both attempting to rebound from discouraging road losses.'

Marker This DVD has long running time [9:00 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"They can come at you in different ways," said Bills defensive coordinator Jerry Gray. "You've got a guy like Dunn who is small but has a lot of speed. Duckett is a big guy who can pound it between the tackles. And of course, you have to account for Vick. It's going to be a challenge for our defense to stop these guys. After last week, I think our guys will be ready to play better than they did in Tampa."'

Marker CBS' Gannon comes out firing bullets [8:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'CBS' new starter, Rich Gannon, had an impressive start analyzing Bills quarterback J.P. Losman last Sunday. The retired Oakland Raiders quarterback did a solid job alongside CBS play-by-play man Bill Macatee explaining what Losman didn't see in the Bills' 19-3 debacle in Tampa Bay.'

Marker Vick a speedy challenge for Bills [5:00 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"You can't practice for the things he does," he said. "You can simulate it but the speed is unrealistic, just like it is on Sundays. I don't think we could ever get the real picture (in practice)."'

Marker Saturday's Atlanta Coverage [4:52 AM] reports:
Injuries hit at thin positions (Atlanta Journal Constitution)

Marker Atlanta Falcons at Buffalo Bills Preview [4:52 AM] reports: 'Atlanta Falcons QB Michael Vick is always trying to convince sportswriters and fans that he’s capable of being a “real” quarterback, one who can stand squarely in the pocket and make the difficult throws far downfield. This week, with his left hamstring still tender, would seem a good time to prove it.'

Marker Saints aiming for initial sellout [4:50 AM]
San Antonio Express News reports: 'A high-ranking New Orleans Saints official hit the airwaves Friday, urging fans to buy the remaining 17,000 tickets for the team's Oct.2 game with the Buffalo Bills at the Alamodome.'

Marker Vick remains probable on injury report [8:20 PM]
AP reports: 'Quarterback Michael Vick practiced Friday for the second straight day and likely will start when the Atlanta Falcons visit Buffalo this weekend.'

Marker Milloy Has Good Day, Likely To Play [5:43 PM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Mularkey says he gave Takeo Spikes the day off. He did have his lower leg in a wrap, but Mularkey says it's just a day off and he won't be added to the injury report.'

Marker Bills-Falcons Statistical Matchup [4:38 PM] reports: 'Vick is 23-for-42 for 279 yards, one touchdown and an interception this season. Bills first-year starter J.P. Losman is 29-for-56 for 283 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions. After a disappointing game last week in Tampa, Losman looks to regroup against the league's 31st ranked pass defense.'

Marker Trio of Bills Starters Still in Question [4:38 PM] reports: 'Three Buffalo starters remain questionable for Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons. Linebacker London Fletcher, safety Lawyer Milloy and offensive tackle Mike Williams will each be game-time decisions, after suffering injuries last weekend in Tampa.'

Marker Milloy status still uncertain for Sunday [1:59 PM]
AP reports: 'Fletcher practiced for the second straight day Friday, while Williams was still hobbling due to an ankle injury that has forced him to miss practice all week. The two also will be game-time decisions.'

Marker The Sunday hero [1:49 PM]
National Post reports: '"Some weeks, he's gonna look unbelievable and then some weeks, against some teams we're gonna play, he's gonna make some mistakes," Buffalo receiver Eric Moulds said. "But, like I told J.P., 'Just keep pluggin' away and keep learning, and learn from your mistakes.' And I think he's gonna do that and I think, hopefully, he's gonna bounce back this week."'

Marker Moulds' patience is tested [8:51 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I wouldn't change anything as far as getting drafted here, but it would be better, like Andre (Reed) had Jim Kelly for most of his career," he said. "I had the controversy with Doug and Rob. I had Billy Joe Hobert. It was tough because the guys I had - Todd Collins and those guys - were young. I've never really had a guy who, every week, I knew he was going to look for me."'

Marker Milloy has thumb surgery; Losman doesn't flinch [8:51 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"Whenever you have something taken away from you that you value so much, it hurts," Milloy said Thursday. "When I found out it was broken and the doctors said surgery, I broke down because of how hard I worked to get ready for this season. I was having a pretty good start. It was like, "Why me?' That's when I decided to just play ball the rest of that game and worry about the consequences later."'

Marker Dusting off the K-Gun offense isn't the answer [8:51 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Every year since '97, I've gotten e-mails about going back to the K-Gun offense. That's not what the Bills need right now. The reason? It's too great a burden on the defense.'

Marker Moulds says he needs to do more [5:00 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"He's seeing a lot of different things right now, and it's understandable for a young quarterback (to struggle), but we have to be able to make plays, whether we take shots up the field or do something different to get him in a rhythm," Moulds said.'

Marker Bills need Losman to rev up passing attack [4:59 AM]
USA Today reports: 'Houston and Tampa Bay stacked their defenses to stop McGahee, and every other team on Buffalo's schedule is going to do the same thing. The only way to loosen the defense is for Losman to have success through the air.'

Marker Going Gray [4:58 AM]
Austin American Statesman reports: 'No, we're talking about the exit of Houston Texans personnel, now that offensive coordinator Chris Palmer was shown the door after the pathetic display in the first two games of the season. I expect Dom Capers to follow at the end of the year. Here's some unsolicited advice for Texans owner Bob McNair, who might as well get the jump on the Vikings when they fire Mike Tice. Hire Jerry Gray as his next head coach.'

Marker Get Moulds Involved [10:39 PM] reports: '“I don't want to get frustrated and I don't want to get the other guys frustrated and get mad at J.P. because I'm not getting the ball,” explained Moulds. “But at the same time I knew it was going to be a process this year. I wouldn't have come back and re-signed with the team if I thought he couldn't get it done.”'

Marker Vick practices, now probable vs. Bills [7:40 PM]
AP reports: '``I learned how to take care of it,'' Vick said when asked to compare the aftermath of each injury. ``I learned how to rehab it and what to do and what not to do. I'm taking precautions, but at the same time I'm doing what I can to try to strengthen it up.'''

Marker Falcons Provide Measuring Stick [7:36 PM] reports: '"You can't bet the house all in one game but it's a good measuring stick to measure where we are right now during week three of the season," said linebacker Takeo Spikes.'

Marker Fletcher Does Some Work. Game Sold Out [7:34 PM]
WGR-AM reports: 'London Fletcher was back at practice on Thursday. Fletcher worked on a limited basis.'

Marker Bills S Milloy played through pain of broken thumb [7:33 PM]
AP reports: '"That's what I expect out of myself," Milloy said. "It wasn't fun, but I think I can tolerate a lot of pain. I went out there and made it happen."'

Marker Bills vs. Falcons Preview [6:40 PM]
TBD reports: 'On offense, it’s time for Willis McGahee and the line to live up to all that 2000-yard-season talk – some early success in the running game would help Losman find some room to work downfield. Don’t expect much production from whichever WR Hall lines up against, but I’m not convinced CB Jason Webster can cover either Moulds or Evans without help.'

Marker Vincent to Host 'Taste of Trenton' [5:34 PM] reports: 'More than 350 guests are expected to attend the 2nd Annual Taste of Trenton fundraiser hosted by Buffalo Bills safety Troy Vincent and his wife, Tommi Vincent, both longtime philanthropists and community leaders. The event serves to deepen Vincent's commitment to develop and sustain a strategic approach to community building that impacts whole neighborhoods by creating opportunities for positive social and economic change. The 2nd Annual Taste of Trenton event will be held Monday, September 26, 2005 from 7 to 10:30 pm at the Trenton Marriott at Lafayette Yard in Trenton, New Jersey.'

Marker Game times set for Saints home games [4:17 PM]
AP reports: 'The Saints will play Buffalo on Oct. 2 and Atlanta on Oct. 16 at 1 p.m. EDT in the Alamodome in San Antonio.'
