Marker Last year’s Bills still haunting Patriots [5:17 AM]
Manchester Union Leader reports: '“We didn’t score a point. We were shut out for the first time in 10 or 12 years. It was just embarrassing. We played terribly. I played terribly and I still remember that game,” said Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who threw four interceptions in the loss. “There is a bad taste in our mouth from that game. We want to go out and try to play certainly much better then we did last year, but even better then we did the last two weeks.”'

Marker Streaking Patriots still stinging from last game at Buffalo [2:09 PM]
AP reports: '''They ain't winning 18 straight, I'll tell you that,'' defensive tackle Pat Williams said. ''I don't care what kind of game plan they come in with, we're going to win on Sunday. The guys are hungry around here. We ain't settling for nothing less.'''

Marker Patriots-Bills scouting report [2:08 PM] reports: 'Patriots 20, Bills 10.'

Marker Bills look to book the Pats [12:57 PM]
Wellsville Daily Reporter reports: '"I think there's a benefit absolutely," said Bills tight end Mark Campbell of playing the Raiders and Patriots back-to-back. "With the Raiders, they had the Pittsburgh Steelers (Mularkey's former team) a week before they had us so they had a bit of a benefit. I definitely think there's a benefit. Now instead of having one week to prepare, we've actually had three weeks to prepare for this style of defense."'

Marker What to Look for vs. Patriots [12:53 PM] reports: 'Drew Bledsoe vs. the Patriots Blitz.'

Marker New England at Buffalo [12:46 PM]
Quincy Patriot Ledger reports: 'Bills must ... Convert in the red zone - Twice Buffalo has driven inside the 15 and come away with no points ... Think deep - A big play now and then from Eric Moulds or Lee Evans would be nice ... Present a united front in secondary - Pats QB Tom Brady can identify a weak link back there and exploit it.'

Marker Pats riding the crest of a brain wave [9:17 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"He is the next closest thing to a coach," Patriots offensive coordinator Charlie Weis said of Brady in a news briefing last month. "It has gotten to the point now, by the time he comes in and we put in the game plan, by the end of the week, he knows the plan like a coach knows the plan."'

Marker Simms takes offense over talk on QBs [9:15 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"It is important that (Bledsoe) plays well for a lot of reasons," said Simms, "for himself, for his team, the coaches and even for the fans and the media. You have to do something that people go "OK, he can do it.' " But he laughs at talk show complaints that focus on Bledsoe's lack of mobility. "It (mobility) is just so over-talked about in the NFL," said Simms. "Is (Indianapolis quarterback) Peyton Manning the most mobile guy in the world? Kurt Warner (of the New York Giants) is not the fastest. Tom Brady (of New England) arguably could be the slowest guy in the NFL at quarterback. Bill Walsh (the legendary coach and QB guru) said all you have to do is sidestep and avoid one guy to get the next little window and throw the football. There are so many guys in the league who are not mobile."'

Marker Bills braced for energy of Dillon [5:08 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'In Cincinnati, his teams went a combined 34-78 and never went to the playoffs. New England has captured two of the past three Super Bowls under coach Bill Belichick and is 42-14 since the start of 2001.'

Marker Belichick exposes Bills' OL [5:07 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Bills coach Mike Mularkey is trying to use Belichick's comments to fire up his offensive line and quarterback, but there probably aren't many Bills fans expecting it to be a factor. If Buffalo beats New England on Sunday, the defensive unit figures to be taking most of the bows.'

Marker Can Szabo corner the market? [5:04 AM]
Boston Globe reports: '"If there is knowledge that you have about your opponent that would help your team win, then it definitely would be appropriate and it should be done. It should be mentioned. He should bring it up. He should be able to say, `This guy is not that fast. Everyone thinks he's fast. But I coached him. He's not that fast.'"'

Marker Law longs for Milloy [5:03 AM]
Boston Herald reports: '``Don't get me wrong - I want him to lose,'' Law said. ``I want him to play well, but I'm not rooting for those guys to win. Hell, I hope it's a big ass-whupping this week.'''

Marker Are Belichick's secrets safe with Szabo? [5:02 AM]
Providence Journal reports: 'While players regularly change teams and bring information with them -- Bledsoe and Lawyer Milloy both have gone from the Pats to the Bills in the past two years -- few people know Belichick, and how he operates, as well as Szabo.'

Marker Belichick’s comments provide fodder for Bills [5:01 AM]
Woonsocket Call reports: 'Although the Bills haven’t read the book, they’ve been informed about its contents. According to The Buffalo News, Bills head coach Mike Mularkey was caught on camera by a news channel needling defensive back Nate Clements – whom Belichick said could be exposed deep in the book – and the offensive line about the insulting remarks.'

Marker Old friend Szabo could give Buffalo an edge [5:00 AM]
Woonsocket Call reports: '"It’s definitely a concern," Belichick said. "Steve spent a lot of time here last year and he’s a very smart guy. He graduated from the Naval Academy and was a double major, so he’s smart. He was here and did a lot of things for us on a volunteer basis and was helpful for myself, the defensive staff and the defensive linemen."'

Marker Brady, Bledsoe face off in Buffalo Sunday [4:59 AM]
Attleboro Sun Chronicle reports: '``Anybody that you come across anywhere outside of the building, you have to just be careful of being influenced by comments, positive or negative,'' Mularkey said. ``There is too much work that goes on in here for anybody really outside to know the amount of time and effort that goes into it. It's not like they're going out there to try to please the crowd,'' he said of his players. ``That's not their objective. They're trying to win a football game. To me, that's just a distraction. If you bring it up they're going to be looking for it, so I really have not addressed it that way. I've just said be careful of outside sources.'''

Marker A Beating Not Soon To Be Forgotten [4:58 AM] reports: 'The casual observer might disagree. The Bills had the Patriots by a mile in every aspect possible, including energy, discipline and execution. Drew Bledsoe never has such an easy time with a Bill Belichick defense. The Bills’ defense was flying all over the place, inducing four Tom Brady interceptions, one of which was run back 37 yards for a touchdown by Buffalo’s Son Of Sam, Sam Adams (whose dad was a former Patriot lineman). Given the 13-1 regular season (and a Vince to boot) which followed this game, only a shattering development like the Milloy release could have precipitated such a horrid result for the Patriots.'

Marker Eagles show support for Vincent [4:57 AM]
Trenton Trentonian reports: 'Vincent, a former Eagles star defensive back now playing for the Buffalo Bills, remains a major supporter of Trenton. "It’s not difficult maintaining my interest in Trenton. I have the right people in charge here and Mayor (Doug) Palmer keeps me in the know,’’ said Vincent.'

October 1, 2004

Marker Pats anxious to face overdue Bills [9:27 PM] reports: '“It seems like it has been a long time since we have played,” Patriots head coach Bill Belichick said to open his Friday morning press conference. “I think everybody is anxious to get back out on the field and play again. We know how tough it is going to be in Buffalo, but in terms of playing a game, we have had a lot of preparation time, a lot of meeting time and [we have] run a lot of plays. Hopefully we are ready to go. I think everybody is feeling anxious about getting out there. We know we have a lot of regular weeks coming up, and we haven’t had any yet. Hopefully, we are into a little bit of a routine here. I think the players are looking forward to it.”'

Marker Two Bills Offensive Linemen Are Feeling Better [9:12 PM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Guards Chris Villarrial and Mike Pucillo practiced on Friday. Both have improved and if they don't have any setbacks, could be upgraded and ready for Sunday against New England.'

Marker Bills use book as motivation [9:11 PM]
Springfield Republican reports: 'When pressed on the accuracy of his comments in his conference call with the Buffalo media, Belichick sidestepped the issue just as he had when the New England media was asking questions about Holley's book. "I'm not getting ready for any book talk," he said. "I'm just talking about getting ready for a game. That book, some of it, was done a year or two ago, and I don't think it's very relevant for this week's game."'

Marker Tops Game Ball Winner: Brian Moorman [5:44 PM] reports: ' visitors selected punter Brian Moorman as the Tops Game Ball of the week winner for his performance against the Oakland Raiders on Sept. 19. Moorman completed a 24-yard pass on fourth down to cornerback Kevin Thomas, which was the first completion by a Bills non-QB since Chris Mohr's 44-yard pass to Daryl Porter on Nov. 19, 2000. Buffalo's two-time Pro Bowl alternate also tallied two punts inside the 20 yard line and registered a 63-yard boot, marking the 38th time in 58 career games he has connected on a punt over 50 yards.'

Marker Bills-Patriots Prediction [5:43 PM]
WOKR-TV reports: 'Bills 20 Patriots 17.'

Marker New England (2-0) at Buffalo (0-2) [1:32 PM]
The Sports Network reports: 'Patriots 20, Bills 17.'

Marker Buffalo wastes draft choice [1:18 PM]
Quincy Patriot Ledger reports: 'No one is talking about the supposed phenom in Buffalo these days. Donahoe's draft decision may be one of the worst choices in the last decade. But there is time for McGahee, 22, to prove Donahoe's decision rewarding. It's just been very slow.'

Marker Off to slow start [1:17 PM]
Nashua Telegraph reports: '“You never like to see a quarterback get a whole bunch (of sacks),” Brady said. “I know that the stuff I’ve seen on Buffalo, the stuff they’re always trying to work on is not take a sack . . . I’m sure he’s not trying to take any sacks, he’s trying to find the open guy and get it to him. But sacks are part of the game when you throw the ball a bunch, too.”'

Marker Bills need law of averages enforced [1:16 PM]
Niagara Falls Reporter reports: 'Bills, 19-17.'

Marker Guessing game awaits [8:52 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"You never know how they're going to come out," said Bills cornerback Troy Vincent, who faced the Patriots last season as a member of the Philadelphia Eagles. "They came out against us with a lot of two-tight end, one-wide receiver sets. When you're thinking they're going to come out and open the ball up with a no-huddle offense, they do something totally opposite."'
